February 12, 2016

College friends are your friends for life. They were there when you skipped your first class, had your first beer, and all the times in between. They know you better than anyone else and here’s how they’ll prove it to you this weekend on Valentine’s Day. 

1. Because they know to avoid planning things that will remind you of your ex.

2. Because they know your daily routine and know when to surprise you. 

3. Because you’ve seem them at your worst, there’s absolutely no need to dress up. 

They’ll still love you, no matter what. 

4. Especially because you know you’re not going anywhere. 

 

5. Yet, if one of you say “let’s go out”, you’re dressed and ready to go. 

 

6. Because no matter how gross the situation gets, you’ll still be there. 

 

7. Because they are truly the only ones that know the way to your heart. 

 

8. Because they are the ones you will always love!
