10 Signs That Your Boyfriend Is Actually Your Best Friend

10 Signs That Your Boyfriend Is Actually Your Best Friend

Just as Hannah Montana said, "You get the best of both worlds"

Before I was in a relationship, I found it so weird that girls and guys found their SO their best friend. Now that I am in one for almost a year I realized that I look at my boyfriend as more than just my boyfriend. He's my absolute best friend, I figured that out so quickly into the relationship.

1. You call him with all of your "girl drama"

He could honestly probably care less about what you and your girlfriends are fighting about today, but he'll listen because he loves you. He'll probably give you some cute advice that will make you smile because he's just so "cute" when he tries to help. It's nice to always have someone on your side. (Hint: It's always nice to have a boyfriend to tell because he's a boy and won't tell your friends about anything because again, he probably could care less.)


2. You let one loose around him.

You know exactly what I'm talking about- a FART. Farting is probably the most anticipated event in a relationship (besides the first kiss). But, take it from me, letting the first one go is always the most awkward but once you fart, you never go back. You'll probably find your inner first grader and crack up every time you hear a "toot".


3. He's your ideal shopping partner!

You always call your boo to come to the mall with you to help you find the perfect outfit for the weekend. He's always the first one, to be honest about what outfits he likes best or just talk you into buying all three!! He wouldn't want his baby walking around looking a mess!


4. He's basically a part of your family!

Remember when you were 12 and you were allowed to bring a friend on vacation and such, and you always picked your best friend? Well, now that you're older you always pick him in accompanying you and your family on vacation or at dinner. Your family loves him, and at family parties, he's always seen dancing the night away with your mom and dad!


5. You'd prefer hanging out with him doing absolutely nothing rather than doing anything else.



You love when he invites you to his house or offers to spend the night at yours because it's probably the purest form of fun ever. You always have fun together no matter what it is. And of course, when it's time to part your ways you're found tugging on his leg in tears begging him not to go.


6. You don't always have to look "flawless" in front of him during those preferred hangouts.

End up having a sleep over? Waking up with no makeup on doesn't even phase you both. Even just hanging out in each other houses doesn't call for an hour of makeup. You simply just walk out the door and he'll make you feel absolutely flawless either way.


7. You're so comfortable with each other's weirdness that embarrassment isn't a thing.


I mean he's your best friend, nothing that you can possibly say or do is embarrassing and you never feel judged when you're around him. Whether you're just cracking stupid jokes or dancing like a weirdo, you can always expect him to join or tell you you're stupid and laugh anyway.


8. You don't need words to judge people


You simply just look at each other and chances are that you're thinking exactly what each other is thinking.


9. He brings out the best in you.

He literally can change your mood from a 0 to 100 so quick. He can make you feel better when your sick with just a kiss on the cheek or being there when you need him. He gives the best advice and cuddles on your worst days.


10. Your fights are probably over picking a place to eat or what to watch.

...and you can get over them in seconds. You're the king and queen of compromises and talking things out. Like going to Wendy's for dinner so you don't have to get dressed up or pay too much.

11 Ways To Make Sure You Get Enough Quality Time, When You Both Work 40+ Hours A Week

It's not always easy when your schedules are packed, but you make it work.

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, and the one thing we learned is that we are really busy people. He works a construction job during the day weekdays, takes class three nights a week and teaches line dances at night on weekends. I work for a transportation company during the day, DJ on the weekends, go to school and work an internship in editorial.

People always wonder how we ever get any alone time. They usually are surprised that we've made it this far with our schedules being so crazy all the time. "Do you ever get to see each other?" The answer is yes. We make the time, even if it's not long and we are always sure to make it last!

Here are 11 ways to make sure you and your honey get plenty of quality time, when you both have crazy busy schedules:

1. Designate a date night.

Date night is super important for any couple, but especially a busy one! My boyfriend and I specifically have Sunday mornings to get breakfast together every week. It's something we both look forward to since that's usually our only day off anyway.

2. Phone calls.

I know this isn't "exactly" quality time. But it makes a huge difference in your day. It may seem crazy, but everyday when I get out of work, I always call my boyfriend on my way home. It's become such a habit now that I don't even think about it. The calls don't usually last longer than, at most, 10 minutes. But those 10 minutes can make a huge difference in your day.

3. Wake up early.

I'm not saying to get up at 4 a.m. and watch a movie together, but what my boyfriend and I do is set our alarms in the morning about 15-20 minutes before we have to get up for work. When that first alarm goes off, it's the cuddle alarm. This means that for the first 15-20 minutes of your day, you are cuddling up with your favorite person. It's the perfect way to start your day right.

4. Visit each other.

If either one of you has a break while the other is still in class or at work, visit them! Take a ride to them and surprise them with their favorite drink and snack. The small gesture will brighten up their day and you both will be happy cause you'll get to see each other.

5. Sleepovers.

If you don't live with your significant other, sleepovers are the next best thing. Your schedules may be chaotic as hell, but being able to go to bed lying next to them gives you the quality time that you never even knew you needed.

6. Coffee breaks.

Now, my boyfriend and I don't exactly do this because I can't drink coffee. But I've seen a lot of people who take their 10-15 minute breaks and meet up for a quick coffee. Granted this only really works if you work close to each other, but it's still a great way to get some quality time in!

7. Play hooky. 

So my boyfriend and I definitely haven't done this because we both need to work as much as we can, but I know a lot of couples who designate a day every so often where they call out sick and play hooky to spend time together. Everyone deserves a mental health day, why not spend it with your boo?

8. Lunch date.

This one is tough for some, but works great for others! When my boyfriend was working second shift, we were able to meet up for lunch every day that week! It's at least a half hour of quality time you get to spend with your partner!

9. Pillow talk.

Right before bed, take 10-15 minutes to lay together and talk about your day. All the good, all the bad, just sit and talk with each other. This little time spent together before you go to bed can actually make you sleep better. If my boyfriend and I didn't do this, I honestly probably wouldn't sleep.

10. FaceTime.

This is another one where you might not be "actually" together, but it makes a difference. Before I moved in with my boyfriend, there would sometimes be a gap in between the times where we'd get to see each other. So, to make up for it, we would Facetime before bed. This is perfect for the couple that work jobs where they have to travel. Getting to see them and hear their voice can immediately calm your nerves.

11. Shower together.

I know what you're thinking, "isn't that a little silly?" or "Won't that just end in sex?" The answer? No. Showering with your partner can actually be a great way for you to be closer together. It's intimate in a way that doesn't have to end in sex, but gives you the same closeness. It can be very relaxing too, if you add candles and really make it romantic. Plus, you'll be saving water!

Another lyric from Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas is You" in case you didn't want to go for the obvious choice!

From the classic "Sleigh Ride" by the Ronnettes, this lyric is perfect for a picture of you and your love cuddling by the Christmas tree!

5. "Every Christmas from now on, I'll be here by your side"

Confident that you've found your forever love and want to share your happiness with all of your friends? This lyric from "All My Christmases" by Jillian Edwards will definitely get your point across.

If you've got some sweet snapshots with a new boo or a long-time crush, take a leap and go for this heartfelt line from Julie London's "I'd Like You For Christmas."

7. "Presents don't mean a thing if you ain't holding me tight"

In "Underneath the Tree," Kelly Clarkson shows through her heartwarming lyrics that she knows exactly how it feels to want someone more than any gift that money could by.

8. "If you'll really hold me tight, all the way home I'll be warm"

This lyric from Mindy Smith's "It Really Is (A Wonderful World)" really captures how it feels to be so enamored with your sweetheart that no other happiness can compare.

11. "I know exactly what I want this year" 

Just as Britney Spears in "My Only Wish (This Year)" is confident that her love is all she needs this holiday season, you need nothing more than some quality time with your baby to make this Christmas the best one yet.

12. "You're the gift that's made all my dreams come true"


If you're in search of "A Christmas Love Song" to show your love how much they mean to you, look no further than Barbra Streisand's holiday single.

13. "Your lips on my lips, that's a merry, merry Christmas"

Justin Bieber's "Mistletoe" is a fairly new addition to the long line of holiday classics, but who can resist topping off a photo of a mistletoe smooch with a line this perfect?

14. "You and me underneath the evergreen, holding hands while the snow is falling"

"More Than I Asked For" by Joy Williams captures just how grateful you feel to have such a lovely person to share the holidays with.

15. "So take my heart this Christmas and wrap it in a ribbon and a bow"

If you're ready to give your heart to someone special, "All My Bells Are Ringing" by Lenka will get you in the right mood.

16. "Here you are smiling at me like you can't feel the cold"

The eclectic "Winter Love Song" by Ayria puts into lyrics exactly how it feels to be too in love to care about anything else in the moment than the person you're with.

Whether you're single, taken, or having an "it's complicated" moment, all will be merry and bright this Christmas 2018!
