There are one or two that stand above the rest.

There are some very big differences between a BFF and a regular friend. You could have tons of regular friends, but there is something very different about the relationship that you have with a best friend.

For those people who say they have 20 best friends, you don't.

There are one or two that stand way above the others. Whether they're childhood friends or you met them recently, there are just some qualities that a regular friend will never have or understand.

You don't show a regular friend the same side of you that a best friend gets. BFFs just get you. 

Let's talk about regular friends for a moment. They're great. They'll go out with you, listen when you're upset over a relationship, and would probably be there to bail you out of jail.

These are all qualities of a pretty awesome person and someone you can rely on. You could have a ton of these people, but these qualities just skim the surface of what a best friend relationship really looks like.

Here are 20 qualities of a BFF level-friend:

You're brutally honest with one another because you know, even if it hurts, they'll get over it.
