Relationships are tricky, but finding a partner who can make the journey smooth is trickier. Being with a girl who understands you and supports you is important, but there are other things that make her a cool girlfriend. You wouldn’t want to be with someone who doesn’t understand your affection for cat videos, or someone who doesn’t support your gaming habits. So how do you know if you’ve found the coolest girlfriend ever? Here are the telltale signs.

1. You can be wacky or your serious self around her, without worrying about driving her away with your anime or cartoon obsession.

2. She’s independent, strong, and doesn’t need you to be her babysitter, but wants you because she loves your company.

3. Your friends love hanging out with her, and she reciprocates those feelings and even encourages you to spend more time with them.

4. She’s capable of having interesting, random, intellectual or stupid conversations with you and there’s never a moment of awkward silence with her.

5. You can do your own things or spend time apart without worrying about irrational jealousy or anger.

6. She doesn’t mind staying in and watching crappy TV with junk food as company, as long as you’re with her.

7. You don’t have to impress her or make her feel appreciated by taking her to an expensive restaurant, because even pizza works for her.

8. She loves and respects you, and never expects you to cut out people from your life or tells you to stop talking to them.

9. You can communicate with each other openly and honestly, knowing that this discussion with her won’t turn into a nasty fight or end in a breakup.

10. She doesn’t keep any secrets from you, tells you everything you didn’t even need to know, because there’s no such thing as too much information.

11. You feel fully comfortable in her presence, whether you’re naked in broad daylight or wearing your torn underpants.

12. She understands you, loves you the way you are, and makes you want to be a better person, but in a positive way.
