10 People You’ll Find In A Friendship Group

June 29, 2021

Friendship groups can be stressful to maintain the older you grow, but friends make the world easier to handle because tbh, life just isn’t it. And having people in your corner makes up for it. Here are 10 people you need in your friendship group.

1.The homebody

Every friend group has this person in it. They are either tired, not in the mood, sleepy or broke. If you don’t invite them, wahala, and if you do, they’ll say no. Sounds like a goat to me.

2. The one that calls you for classes and job opportunities

This friend is basically in your life to make sure that you excel at life. If you don’t have one, then I’m sorry for you. In school, they probably spent most of their time reminding you about upcoming classes, assignments and projects. After school, they send job applications or seminar invites to you.

3. Your ride or die

Everyone knows that in a friend group, there’s always that pair that are a lot closer. This person knows how to sign a document on your behalf due to years of practice. This is a friend that hasn’t seen you in two days, but if your partner calls them to ask for you, they’ll lie that you’re with them.

4. The birthday friend

This particular friend doesn’t talk much or hang out with you often, but they can never forget your birthday. They call, text, write long epistles or send presents every year. Hold this one close.

5. The scarily quiet friend

These are so quiet, if your friend group is really large and loud, y’all probably always wonder why they’re still your friend. You can’t tell when they have entered or exited a room. It makes you wonder what goes on in their head.

6.The money bag friend

This person doesn’t even have to be rich, rich. They just have to be kind. If they buy anything, they always buy for the rest of the group, and they come through for everyone. It must be tiring to be so nice all the time.

7. The one that knows everyone

Walking around with this person is a nightmare. They must say hi to every Tom, Dick and Harry. They know everyone and their daddies. Why they know that many people is a puzzle.

8. The friend with a dramatic life

Their life is straight out of a TV show. The things that happen to you in a year, happen to them in a week. Sometimes you worry about them but they always bounce back.

Pov: You trying to make sense of their life.

9. The soft friend

If you have a friend like this, make sure you protect them. How can someone be so innocent and soft? Please protect this friend by all means.

10. The friend that is family

This friend has been to your ancestral home at least once. They are more of your mum’s child than you are. They feel so much like family, and you can’t imagine life without them. Also, you and this friend are always insulting each other like siblings.
