When People Think Your Best Friend Is Your Sister, These 6 Things Will Happen

Ad failed to load

The people you let into your life will undoubtedly have a major effect on your happiness, so it's super important to be picky about those you get close to. Making friends is basically like dating, and when you've found the one you're meant to be with, you'll just know. Sometimes, BFFs are so close that they might even act or dress alike. And let's be honest: The joyful feeling you get when people think your best friend is your sister is unlike any other.

A best friend is like having a soulmate and a sister all in one. You'll share pretty much everything, enjoy the same activities, and get to know each other better than you know yourselves. You'll know just how to make each other laugh, and how to cheer each other up when times are tough. If you happen to share any distinguishing features -- i.e. curly hair or thick glasses -- you've probably been mistaken for relatives more than once, too. Here are six things you can totally relate to if people think your best friend is your sister.

1. You Get Called By The Wrong Name

Those who may not know you as well might mix you and your bestie up for awhile, but that's totally OK. It's really NBD, as long as they try to learn who's who. When it's a professor who knows you both and gets you confused, though, something might be a little wrong. Maybe you two just look the same from the back.

2. You've Accepted Your Similar Fashion Tastes

If you and your girl get mixed up a lot, you might look more alike than you know. It totally won't help if you share the same tastes in fashion, but at least you will both look completely fabulous together. The sister look is in RN, anyways.

3. You Know Just How To Answer The Questions

“Are you sisters?” No. “Cousins?” Still no.

You've heard them all, from twins to cousins, to step-sisters. Really, though, you're not related. It might take some convincing, so sometimes it's easier just to say that you're actually sisters.

4. Your Bestie Basically Is Your Sister By Now

Best friends pretty much act like siblings anyway, so you may as well just say you're sisters. You steal each other's clothes, know each other's families, and occasionally sleep in each other's beds. You were clearly meant to be sisters, so there's a lot of lost time to make up for.

5. It's Become An Inside Joke

While you're polite to everyone who confuses the two of you, you totally laugh behind their backs. Sometimes, you feel like two complete strangers, and sometimes you're the same person, but everyone else seems to think you're siblings. It happens so often that it's just funny now, so how else are you supposed to react?

6. You (Not So) Secretly Wish You Were Sisters

You already love each other like family, and at this point, you'd give just about anything to actually be sisters. Sometimes you'll even tell strangers that you are related because you look like it and act like it, so why not? All you're missing is the biological factor, but that's not even that important. #SistersForLife.
