Best Friends Forever is what this is referring to. Do you have a bff? If so then you relate to all the stages. The key to true and everlasting friendship is to make each other laugh till your stomach hurts, be there for each other through everything, and then get some dirt on them when they’re drunk so they can never leave you. The stages of friendship from a friend to a serious BFF is very similar to the stages you have in your relationship with bae. Except for the fact that friendship is forever.
