Can I call my good friend 好基友 or 闺蜜?

Hi @YuQinCai, @Constance_Fang @Fiona and the ChinesePod team, my question is this: I have a very good friend, can I say, we are “好基友”? thanks.

Hi Grace,

Very interesting question! The terminology you use to describe your friends actually depends on genders! In this case, you can use 闺蜜 to refer to your female friends. As for 好基友, the term used to refer to gay relationships, but in recent years its usages have expanded, and now you can describe bromance or close male friendships with this word too!
