Hubert H. Humphrey once said that “The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love.” If both of these things are so important, then wouldn’t it be amazing to have both of those in just one person? Some people completely agree with this and have a partner who’s both their true love and best friend.
You could have this kind of relationship too and not even know it. If you think that you might, here are 6 telltale signs that your significant other is also your best friend.
1. You Feel Completely Comfortable Together
There’s no apprehension from either of you when you’re both together. You’re completely comfortable saying or doing just about anything around one another at this point. Along with that, neither of you feels the need to try and impress the other. Instead, you’re both free to be your true, authentic selves.
2. You Joke with Each Other
If laughter really is the best medicine then it’s safe to say that neither of you will ever be ill. Both of you love to make jokes together and make each other smile. Sometimes those jokes may be at the expense of one of you, but both of you know that it’s all in jest.
3. Arguing Isn’t That Big of a Deal
Couples fight, it’s natural. The only problem that can arise is when couples fight so often and so fiercely that it affects every part of their relationship. Thankfully, you don’t have that problem. Of course, you argue sometimes, but you both try to forgive an forget. No one holds a grudge against the other and you both try to fix your issues instead of just being mad about them.
4. You Never Run Out of Things to Say
You could both sit and talk to each other for hours without ever getting bored. Being with your partner is just so comforting and freeing that you never run out of things to say to them. Despite that, if you both feel like you need some silence for a while, you feel completely comfortable with that too.
5. You Hang Out With Each Other’s Friends
Sure, you both do things separately with your friends, but sometimes you all hang out together too. Whether you’re with their friends, they’re with yours, or you’re all in a big group, you know it’s going to be a fun time.
6. They’re You’re Biggest Support
When things get rough, you know that you can always count of them. Through thick and thin they stay by your side and do everything that they can to support you. Whether you need important life advice, or you just need someone to hold your hand, they’ll be there.
What could be greater than having the person that you love most be your best friend too? A relationship like that is one that will stay strong no matter what may happen. When two people care about each other this much, nothing could ever tear them apart.
