8 Signs Your Partner’s Bestie Is Just Waiting Their Turn

December 2, 2022

Your partner’s nice and charming “bestie” probably doesn’t wish you well. In fact, chances are they want you to mess up. If you notice any of these things, just know they’re an opp.

They actually call your partner “bestie”

That’s the first red flag. Open your eyes so they don’t take you fi idiat.

They’re nice to you

That’s because they’re already plotting how you won’t be there for long. Just watch your back.

Or they’re not nice to you

Maybe it’s biting their body that you’re taking up their rightful space, and they’ve had enough. Or they were nice to you before, and you’re now overstaying your welcome. Either way, don’t lose guard.

They’re always offering your partner food

They’re basically using every tactic in the book at this point. You need to watch out.

They’re always giving unnecessary advice about what your partner likes

If you can’t see they’re secretly plotting your downfall, then we can’t save you. Once they start telling you, “Buy this for him, it’ll make him smile”, sound the alarm.

They’re always shipping the two of you

They’re overcompensating for the bad belle they have for your relationship when you’re not there. If they start smiling and shipping you and your partner, frown and ask them what’s funny. Don’t let them fool you.

They stay up to wish your partner “Happy birthday” before you

If you call your partner by 12:00 a.m., and they’re already on another call, hold their bestie responsible. They’re obviously at war with you.

They have inside jokes

Once they start giggling with each other about stuff that happened way before you met your partner, you’re the third wheel.
