8 Types of Female Friends That Always Ask for Advice

February 28, 2022

If you have female friends that ask for your advice, you’ll definitely recognise at least one of these nine girls. You may even be one of them. We’re all guilty, just catch your sub. 

1.  The coconut head

This girl? Problematic should be her middle name. She’ll come to your house to vent, cry and nod her head to all the wisdom you offer. Five minutes later, she’s doing the exact opposite. Time and time again you’ve asked yourself why you keep bothering yourself, but what can you do? Her chaotic behaviour is all the K-drama you need.

2. The once bitten never shy

She calls by 1 a.m. to complain about the same thing over and over again. It would be better if the problems were different, but it’s not. The sad part? You don’t have any other choice than to listen to her. Pele babe.

3. The unfortunate girl

Things never work out for this friend. There’s no advice that you give her that works out as planned. All you can do is commit her to God. There’s nothing you can do for her again. You’ve tried.

4. The girl with audacity

This is the girl you need to stop wasting your energy on. Not because she doesn’t listen to you, but because she calls right in the middle of doing everything you told her not to. 

5. Always in deep shit

Her issues are bigger than life and you never know what to say when she starts ranting. This is the friend that needs more therapy than she cares to admit. But until then, you’ll be dealing with issues you can’t solve.

6. The ITK

She’s the one with all the issues and all the answers to them. This babe is the patient that self-diagnoses herself on Google before seeing the doctor. She comes with an issue but you won’t even get halfway through before she’s off. Don’t worry, she’ll be back.

7. The liar

Context is her problem in life. She’ll never give the full gist and expects you to magically solve the problem. It’s either she’s leaving out the parts that make her look bad, or the parts she knows you’d call her out for bullshit. Girl, nobody will beat you, speak your truth. We’ll forgive you for the sneaky link.

 8. The girl that never has any issues in the first place

She doesn’t exist, but let’s pretend like she does
