Some of us are lucky enough to have had the same best friend since before we can remember. Others find them in their college day and some not until later in their adult years. Once you lock in that friendship and know you can call him your “best friend,” hold on tight, because shit’s about to get weird.

Here are 10 ways to know you’ve found your best bro for LIFE!

What Money?

He owes you $10 for that 30 rack you were supposed to split, but you owe him $12 for those shots he bought last weekend. Bottom line? No one gives a shit. You’re way past remembering who owes who money, and neither of you care anyway. It’s just about the good times.

Shots, Shots, Shots

They know what your limit is by now but keep offering you shots until eventually they have to cut you off before you end up passed out right outside your apartment with no shirt on curled up with a stolen road sign. Yeah, I said shits going to get weird.

“The Boys are Back in Town”

Even if you two haven’t talked for a while because life gets busy, you can pick up right where you left off like no time has passed at all.

No Secrets

When someone tells you an embarrassing or wild story, they’re always apprehensive to tell you because they know you’re just going to go tell your best friend. And as soon as they tell you the story, of course you’re going to tell him. I mean, that’s some funny shit!

“I Got Your Back, Bro”

Even if they call you at all hours of the night to vent about seeing their ex-girlfriend with some loser, or if they’re hot about someone talking shit at the bar, you’ll immediately have their back because they would do the same for you.


You two know EXACTLY what to say to each other to get on each others nerves. From the outside looking in, it may seem a little harsh, but not to you guys.

Inside Jokes

Sometimes you guys get caught laughing by yourselves in front of a group of people who don’t understand the one-liner you just said – you had to be there, bro.

More Secrets

There are basically zero secrets between you two, as you both know almost everything about each other. And there’s no shame. No. Shame.

You Listen to Their Girl Problems

Every guy bitches about their women, it’s an inevitability. Instead of judging you or getting annoyed, they stick right through and listen. They may not always have anything constructive to say, but they’re at least going to hear you out because he’s your best bud!

What Plans?

Sometimes they just show up at your place unannounced, walk in and start yelling for you – and you couldn’t care less. It’s routine.

Remember, your best friend will be there for you for life. When you get married, your wife might think she’s your new “bestie,” but she’s wrong. Very wrong. Nothing can come between a guy and his best bud.
