It gets a little weird when they get a significant other.
You are both very happy and comfortable in the friend zone.
No, you are not in a relationship; no, you will never be in a relationship. No you have never even thought about being in a relationship, (apart from that low point when you thought you were going to die alone). You are both very aware you are in the friend zone and you like it there.

Compliments come few and far between.
Unlike your female friends who are always ready to tell you how beautiful you look, male besties just don't give a shit . And if you were to get a compliment, it's normally a little weird.

You can get away with dirtier jokes.
So I'm not saying female friends don't have a sense a humour or anything, but when it comes to dirty jokes, male besties just get it a little more.
You really can JUST Netflix and chill.
Netflix and chill means Netflix and chill, no sexual innuendo and no ulterior motives. You can actually enjoy a whole movie, without questioning if you shaved or not.
