Friends are the family that we choose. They are the most important people in our lives next to our family members. We can’t even imagine our lives without them. They know all our faults and yet never judge us. Each friend has a unique place in our heart. Here are types of friends we all have.
1. The Party Animal
This friend is always partying. He/she is your drinking buddy and never tires of going out. The party becomes dull without them.
2. The Mother
This friend is always concerned about you and treats you like a kid. What you’ve eaten, how much you drank, your health, wealth, fitness, they want to micro-manage it all. They can be very irritating at times but, they never let you miss your mother
3. The “Always having a Crisis” one
This type of friend makes poor choices leading them to keep having a crisis one after the other. They only remember you when they are having a crisis, ask for your advice and then completely ignore it.
4. The Life Coach
This friend is your life saver. No matter what your troubles are you go to this friend and instantly feel better. Together, you come up with a solution. This friend always pulls you up when you are down.
5. The Soul-mate
He/she is your life. You can’t even think of living without them. They are the closest person to you. The Yin to your Yang. Your Significant Other always has to compete with this friend for attention and time.
6. The Adrenaline Junkie
This friend is adventurous and forever seeking thrills. Trekking, biking, diving, hiking, they’ve done it all and want to do more. They inspire you to be fit and try new things.
7. The ScumBag
We all have that one friend who we don’t particularly like. They are mean, nasty and always put you down. everyone tells you to stop being friends with them. But, you’ve gotten so used to them in your life that you just remain friends out of habit.
8. The Ditcher
This friend is one of the first to join in on the plan but, at the last minute cancels citing some lame excuse that everyone knows to be false. You have come to expect their cancellations now and are surprised when they actually do turn up.
9. The Long Distance one
We all have that one extremely dear friend who stays very far away. You hardly ever meet them and all your talks happen on Skype. Yet, you always know everything about each others lives and when you do manage to meet, it is like no time has passed.
10. The Long Forgotten and Lost one
Remember that one person who was once your closest friend but, now you have totally lost contact and your heart breaks every time you reminisce about the time you spent
11. The Comic
This friend is a complete joker and makes everyone laugh. He/she can convert any serious issue into a light-hearted one.
12. The “Uncle”
There is always this one friend who has become an “Uncle/Aunty”. They are extremely lazy and would rather rest at home than come out and have fun. These friends get excited when plans get cancelled.
13. The Activist
This friend is always involved in trying to change the society for the better. He/she are passionate about it and have no qualms in being extremely vocal of the issues they support, We get tired of their righteousness but, they make us better people.
