The proof is in the pudding when it comes to the sheer awesomeness of best friends.

So, to celebrate their incredible ways (and because it's our Month of Kinship and soon-to-be Galentine's day) we've summarised why all BFFs are so bloody wonderful.

And yes, it has EVERYTHING to do with the fact they tell us when there's a bogey hanging from our nose.

They are the only people willing to handle your (actual) puke...

And still hug you afterwards.

You can tell them anything...

And show them anything.

That dark mole on your butt? Yep, you went there.

They know exactly what to say when you're feeling blue...

But also don't shy away when you're acting crazier than a bag of bats.

You cry...

They cry.

You eat...

They eat, too.

They're honest...

Sometimes brutally so.

Well that bogey up your nose ain't gonna move itself.

They always have a solution...

Even if 50% of the time it's daft.

They know when to be there...

And when not to be.

You might get annoyed with one another...

But never for long.

You can convey mutual feelings with one shared look.

You can vent to them about anything without fear of judgement.

And that's why they call 'em best friends.
