10 Types of People in a Group Chat

10 Types of People in a Group Chat

We've all been there.

"I've never been held hostage, but I have been in a group chat."

It's almost 2017, and at this point i'm assuming everyone in the smartphone world has been in a group chat (or group text) at least once in their life. Depending on the type of person you are, you might love them or absolutely hate them. Group chats take up a majority of your phone battery because your squad is always sending screenshots from Instagram/Twitter, gossiping about that girl you all hated from high school or trying to make plans for next weekend. Depending on the group of people in your chat, the conversations can vary, but specifically at least every chat has one of these ten people:

1. The Roaster.

That one person who is always on the prowl for who they can roast next in the group chat. You better think twice about everything you post because they've been thinking of roasts all day. (My favorite kind of person.)

2. The Roastee.

The person who can never get a break from the Roaster.

3. The Ghost.

This is the person who you'll never actually take out of your chat cause your tight in real life, but they just never answer. (Except the occasional "lol".)

4. The Comedian.

The person who also occasionally answers, but every time they do they never disappoint because they always say something hilarious.

5. The Ranter.

This is the person who's always fighting with their boyfriend/girlfriend and the texts come in sporadically. By the time their done you'll have about 32 text messages that could of fit into one paragraph.

6. The Questioner.

The person who's literally always confused when you're all trying to make plans and asks a million stupid questions that we're already answered (if they would just scroll up in the chat they would know that for themselves).

7. The Person Who Kills Every Joke.

We honestly wish you would talk a little less. *cricket, cricket*

8. The News Breaker.

We love this person because they're always on Facebook sending us screenshots to make sure we're always up to date with whats going on with everyone else in the world.

9. The Intellectual.

The person who ruins everything thats semi-funny with some educated background about the joke.

10. The Tribe Leader and Leadees.

The main person in the group chat and everyone else who always has your back when you need some back up.

A Letter To My Ex-Best Friend

I wish things had ended differently.


You were my best friend for eleven years. We grew up together, hit milestones together, and did everything together. We helped each other through our parents' divorces, the struggles of high school, mental health breakdowns, and everything else that was thrown at us. Whenever I needed a pick me up, you were the one I went to.

You were a part of my family. You could walk right into my house and no one would even bat an eye. You fought with my brother the way I did and messed with my parents the way I did. You would even text my sister. Most of my family vacations included you. I got into some huge trouble with you, but we also thrived together.

We helped each other choose outfits. I dragged you along to all my dates because I was way too nervous to go alone. We had so many nights of endless laughter over things that really weren't even funny.

You were my person.

But high school changed things. We began to gravitate towards separate friend groups. No more good morning texts, no more venting about the annoying girl in your first period that had a crush on the same boy as you. I stopped hearing about your boy drama.

And one day it stopped completely.

When we saw each other in the hallways, we pretended we didn't. Our memories faded and became just that; memories. We stopped asking each other's lunch plans and making plans with each other in general. We once knew so much about each other we couldn't even tell where one person started and the other ended. But now we're strangers.

And boy, do I miss you.

A lot of people feel bitterness towards their ex-best friends. Angry at the way things ended. I just feel a longing for the way things once were. Yes, our friendship didn't really end in the most civil way. But that doesn't take away from the years of tears, laughter, family vacations, and countless memories we made.

I don't feel angry at you, I just wish we never lost each other.

I think about you a lot. Whenever I see you in passing or on social media, I think about what things may have been like if we never parted ways. I think about how strong our friendship would have been. And it honestly breaks my heart.

I want you to know I have no hard feelings towards you. I know things will never be the same, but I will cherish our memories forever.

Thank you for being such a huge part of my life.

Thank you for not only helping me grow up but growing up alongside me as well.

Thank you for getting me through the tough times, from my parents' divorce to something as simple as a middle school break up.

Thank you for being my person for my entire childhood. You are the reason I'm here today and I will never forget that.
