1. Your first hangout.

Usually the equivalent of a date, but this time more casual and less pretentious. It’s the first time you both spend together doing something fun or just getting to know each other. It can happen in the most ordinary ways, sometimes it’s not even planned but at the end of the day you go home knowing you just landed a great friend and the vibe was off the charts.

2. Your first time partying together.

This is usually planned and usually comes later on in the friendship. It’s your first night out with your girl and sometimes you don’t even let any guy come in between in the name of toasting. It’s just you two and the cruise you are on.

3. Getting them through a breakup.

The part where you channel your inner Oprah, Dr. Phill, and Joro to help them get through a painful breakup. Sometimes it works and they snap out of it, other times they go right back to the relationship. But the important thing is you were there at their most vulnerable point.

4. The first time you lend them your favorite something.

And they bring it back in one piece. Fam, thats a sign.

5. Your first gift from them.

And it turned out to be exactly what you were hoping it would be. Because they actually listen to you and they know you that well.

6. Then you have your first fight. 

But you both bounce right back. No one starts spreading rumors about the other person. You both maintain a ‘love and light’ vibe but from afar.

7. Your first time meeting their family.

And everything goes so well you feel like you’ve found a second family.

8. Celebrating you first birthday with them.

And they come through for you in all the ways you want. They go all out to host the best party for you, rally round your best pals and finish off with the sweetest gift. BFF’s are truly a blessing.

Which of these BFF milestones can you relate was the best memory for you?
