You’re living every best friend’s dream: BFFs + roomies wrapped into one.
Forget sharing clothes like other BFFs, however; not even close to possible. You’ll never fit into anything your best friend wears – no matter how much weight you intend to lose. And of course most of your clothes are way too big for your roomie to fit into.
To be fair, your BFF can pull off some of your clothes..
…whether he/she likes wearing them is another story.
Your best friend is a little weirder than most about personal space. He/she can spend all day in the same room as you quite happily. Actually, most of the time, your BFF will follow you around the house and constantly check in to see what you’re doing. But when it comes to his/her personal bubble, your BFF can be a little picky.
Your roomie isn’t a huge fan of other people, and while visitors might find this mildly annoying, it’s kind of nice knowing you’re one of the only people your best friend puts up with – let alone actually likes!
You’re on washroom duty, and you end up cleaning after your best friend a lot…
…sometimes twice in a row, depending on how inconsiderate your BFF happens to be that day. What? Your roomie likes things clean.
Your best friend’s hair is pretty near always in the shower and the sink. To be honest, it’s everywhere in the house – under the bed, in pots and pans, how’d it get into your tea? And yes, it’s your responsibility to clean up all that hair because your BFF certainly isn’t bothered by its existence.
Of course, that doesn’t mean your best friend is bad when it comes to hygiene. Truth be told, your roomie’s actually quite a stickler for personal hygiene. So luckily, you (usually) never end up with a smelly roommate – unless of course you accidentally throw your tuna can from lunch into the trash without rinsing it out. But that’s another story…
There’s nothing better than spending an evening in with your best friend; Netflix + kitty company – the perfect combination.
Then after, when it’s time to catch up on work, most of the time your best friend will be exceptionally quiet and respectful; staying near to keep you company, but not overwhelming you with distractions and demands so you can get your tasks done.
Every so often, though, your BFF will get a hankering for attention. Don’t worry, you’ll always realize when this is happening –

– your best friend isn’t one for subtleties. BFF wants attention = time for a break. And you can definitely count on your roommate to know when it’s time for a break.
…And when it’s time for dinner. Which is 100% your roomie’s favourite time of day.
Like any other pair of best friends, you argue every so often. Though unlike with other BFFs, most of your arguments have to do with the destruction of furniture (sorry, couch!), the fact that your BFF woke you up in the middle of the night for no reason at all, or frustration over the fact that your BFF is obsessed with food and will never stop talking about it.
Like with any other best friend, you also get on each others nerves every so often. You find you often mildly annoy your BFF to the point where he/she walks away. It’s okay though. You know your BFF will always be there whenever you need a cuddle or some company. No hard feelings ever.
Actually, your best friend is pretty good at forgiving in general.. Even when you clumsily step on your BFF’s tail.. owtch.
When hard times do roll around, it can be extremely difficult trying to put your problems into words your best friend will understand. MSAL (Meowing as a second language) classes don’t really help with the language barrier.
But usually it’s not important to put your problems into words at all. Comfort from your BFF is always available; no words necessary.
