7 Important Reasons Why You Need a Friend Group

July 5, 2022

You probably don’t think you need a friend group. The things on this list, however, are all you need to convince and not confuse you that friend groups are very important. 

A fun birthday

One gift per member of the friend group. Just imagine all of them joining money to buy you a car or small island, depending on the collective wealth of the group. Having a friend group makes it more likely you’ll have a surprise birthday party. Who doesn’t want one of those? 

Gossip sweet die

People act like gossiping is terrible, and sure it has its downsides, but it’s mostly fun. Having a friend group means putting pieces of gist together to form the whole story. And if anyone finds out you’re using your group for gossip, they could judge you all they want, but you don’t care. You’ve never been happier.

People you can share platters with 

If you’re someone who always wants to eat everything a restaurant has to offer, you desperately need a friend group. Buying a platter for yourself means you pay the total price and still pay for takeaway. A friend group means you pay a fraction of the cost and taste everything. Dollar is ₦600; choose wisely. 

Never do anything alone 

There’s always one member of the friend group down for whatever strange activity you want to engage in. You’d never be alone again.

Fewer people to get for an orgy 

You need at least 12 people for an orgy. With a friend group, you’ve already knocked a significant number out of that list. Work smarter, not harder. 

People you can split subs with 

Netflix, Spotify, Showmax, etc. cost a lot of money, the kind of money you can use to buy land. A friend group means you can opt for a family plan and pay a fraction. If you’re lucky, you’ll have a wealthy friend you can mooch off of. Everyone wins.

Screenshots from your fun gc for social media 

This is the single most important reason to have a friend group. Sure, having people to do activities with is fun, but you also need content to post on social media. Everyone wants to post screenshots of the group chat. And you want everyone to think you’re funny and cool. You need to feed off of the jealousy of your followers. Showing off >>>>
