19 Reasons Why Your Girls Are Your Soulmates.

Forget boys. Carrie Bradshaw really did get it right when she said your girls are your soulmates. Here’s why:

  1. They’ve been there. Through everything.
  2. You have so many crazy stories and inside jokes that make no sense (and can’t be explained) to anyone else.
  3. You have, on at least one occasion, pretended to be their girlfriend so a creep at the bar will leave them alone.
  4. They know what to say and when to say it. Even if you don’t want to hear it, and especially when you don’t want to hear it.
  5. Getting drunk together and crying because you love each other so much is totally normal (and acceptable) after 74911294 cocktails.
  6. You can have intense heart-to-hearts at 1am or 1pm and they always give you the best advice.
  7. It doesn’t matter how often you catch up, it’s like you’ve never been apart.
  8. They get the first text on Valentine’s Day and Christmas morning. Without fail.
  9. They’ve held your hair back after one too many glasses of vino at least once…
  10. …And you’ve gladly returned the favour.
  11. They’ve been there through all the “big” milestones in life.
  12. Your group WhatsApp consists of a) Timehop posts saying “OMG can you believe this was X years ago, b) memes that could have been written for your group, or c) screenshots from Facebook saying “can you believe so-and-so just got engaged / married / had a baby…”
  13. You’re always the first to like their new selfie on Instagram. Gotta give a gal some love!
  14. You have a “side” that you need to stand on when taking pictures and have totally perfected your snaps together.
  15. A quick catch-up over coffee can last all day and you never run out of things to talk about.
  16. Those stories you’ve re-lived a million times never get old and are always funny. 
  17. You can just give them a look and they know exactly what you’re thinking. 
  18. You’ve laughed till you’ve cried and cried till you’ve laughed. 
  19. Sistas before mistas. Duh.
