    especially ones that emerged from so many layers of inside jokes that they're impossible for others to understand

    a la Andy from Parks&Rec
  4. sends pictures of dogs and surprise compliments
  5. operates under the harmless delusion that coins do not exist as a form of currency

  7. doesn't use read receipts
  8. plays w my hair
  9. likes country music (or tolerates it on my behalf)
  10. is an optimist
  11. thinks I'm endlessly cool
