For me, finding friends has always been difficult. While I won't admit that I am picky with who I surround myself with, I will say that it is hard to find people that genuinely care about you. That is partially because of the time that I live in. With social media and growing technology, it is hard to hangout with people who don't have their faces glued to their phone.

The year is 2017. If you have not seen the T.V. show "Friends," what are you doing with your life? This show is still so relevant today because they were the true definition of friendship goals. All six characters represented many qualities that are imperative to being a good friend. With that being said, maybe this list will show you some qualities that you can look for in a friend on your quest to find genuine people.

1. Chandler Bing

Chandler is the kind of guy that always keeps life interesting. He is the one who has the witty comebacks, sarcastic remarks, and a dumb joke that will make you laugh. Even if his life isn't completely put together, he will do his best to try and make you feel better whether that's by looking like a fool and embarrassing himself, or just listening. Underneath all of the goofiness, Chandler is kind-hearted and genuinely loves his friends.

2. Joey Tribbiani

Joey is like Chandler in the sense that he is also a jokester. While he may not be the smartest of the group, he is loyal to his friends. The love he has for them is without question, and Joey never fails to try and make a situation better even if he in turn actually makes it more complicated. He always means well.

3. Ross Geller


Ross is quite the interesting guy. He is the most educated in the group, and understands the importance of family. He goes above and beyond to show his kids, family, and friends that they are important to him. Whether that means dressing up as an armadillo for Christmas, or rushing to an airport to stop his true love from leaving, he will do whatever it takes to prove he cares. While he isn't the most even-tempered, his love for his friends more than makes up for it.

4. Monica Geller

The Monicas of the world are to be cherished, truly. They are the ones that keep everything in check. Monica is a total perfectionist. Without her, her friends' lives would be complete chaos. While she is more like the "mom" of the group, her way of showing she cares is by micro-managing everyone. Even though that seems like a bad thing, it is nice to have a friend that will always be responsible. I'm personally envious of the Monicas out there because I would find it really hard to be perfect all the time.

5. Rachel Green

Rachel is the friend that you go to when you need advice on all things that are trendy. It is so important to have a friend that will always be honest with you, whether you like it or not. Rachel may not be the smartest, but she is a hard-worker. She goes after what she wants, and doesn't settle for less than what she deserves.

6. Phoebe Buffay

Phoebe is the one that adds craziness to the group. She is the one who makes life interesting because you never know what you're going to get with her. This is a good friend to have around because despite all the weirdness, you can tell that she loves her friends by the crazy antics she gets them into.
