7 Secrets To Tell Your Best Friend If You Want To Get Even Closer In Your 20s
You and your BFF are basically twins conjoined at the hip. You spend all of your time together, and share pretty much everything from clothes and favorite movies to taste in food and music. It totally makes sense that you would only feel comfortable divulging every single one of your best-kept secrets to her. You will most likely feel as though a weight has been lifted knowing that you are an open book to your bestie, and nothing is unknown. If you want to get really close in your 20s, there are some secrets to tell your best friend that'll inevitably strengthen your bond.
They're not always super juicy — some are just embarrassing anecdotes that you've been dying to tell someone, but need to know the person is completely trustworthy. When we're in our 20s, we've probably distanced ourselves enough from our somewhat bizarre and embarrassing high school days, making those secrets much easier to tell. You're not in your 30s just yet, so you still have some major life lessons that you want to keep on the DL. Maybe you've already shared this information with your best friend, and that's why you're closer than ever before. If you haven't yet, plan a fun girls' night in with wine and snacks to confess these seven secrets to each other.
1. Your Current Crush
This is always a fun secret you naturally have to tell your BFF. First, you might want to make sure it's a crush that lasts longer than a week so you get to know the guy. Once you know you're hardcore crushing, you need to let your BFF know ASAP. She can be super helpful by playing your wing woman with no judgments attached.
2. The Lowdown On Your Tinder Date Horror Stories
You probably don't tell everyone you know about the f*ckboy you didn't really want to go out with in the first place, but did, and then he ghosted you. It's annoying AF, and you need to tell someone about all of your Tinder date horror stories. Your bestie will offer some words of wisdom, tell you the guy is a total jerk who doesn't deserve you, and you can vent about the frustrating online dating world together.
3. Your Netflix, Hulu, And HBO Passwords
You wouldn't hand out this privileged information to just anyone, but you need your BFF to be caught up on the newest season of Stranger Things so you can talk about it together. You know she wouldn't abuse the gift you're giving her. She also won't make fun of your recently watched shows or the embarrassing password you made up in high school that you still use on the regular.
4. The People You Pretend To Like, But Really Can't Stand
We all have people who we tolerate. That person could be the annoying coworker you have to get along with, or that friend in the group who you just don't get along with, but she's part of the crew. You can confess to your BFF who it is you don't particularly care for. She may end up confessing the same.
5. Your Embarrassing Childhood Stories
We all have stories from our childhood that are downright hilarious, but we don't want everyone to know about them. We've been itching to tell someone, but first, we want to make absolutely sure the person we tell these stories to will not judge us now for how weird we were back then. Your bestie is the only person you can trust, so clue her in.
6. How Clean You Really Are
If you go days without showering, you can certainly tell your BFF and know she won't judge you for it. You also let her know how long it's been since you shaved your legs or washed your favorite pair of jeans. She honestly knows all about your hygiene.
7. Your Real Dreams
When you're in an interview and are asked what your dream job is, you may say something that sounds practical and attainable. But in reality, you might want to say an astronaut or a Quidditch player. You know, the real dreams. You tell your BFF what your dreams are, however big or small, because you know she will always be your number one cheerleader.
