7 Types of Best Friends We'll Ever Have

By now, I'm pretty sure you've read Justine's article, "7 Types of Friends We've all Encountered." If you haven't, give it a read and have a good laugh; remind yourself of the headaches you've faced when dealing with some bad friends. We've all encountered some pretty bad friends in life, but now, here's a list of some better friends to keep in your life. Here's a list of the seven types of best friends we'll ever have:

1. The Mother

This friend isn’t bad at all. A little annoying occasionally, but not bad. They’re the friend you want at every gathering, because when they’re there, no one will wander off or get hurt. It’s as if this friend is the mother duck, and the rest of you are her chicks.

2. The Crazy One

Now, this friend is literally an invisible "caution" sign. They're not at all bad people because they're the ones that bring life to the party. There is never a dull moment with them around and rest assured, they're the ones that will tell you what you need to hear, instead of what you want to hear. They'll challenge you to do things you've never done before and make you explore new places you would never have thought to visit. They help create most of the adventurous memories you'll ever have and they're the kind of memories that'll last you a lifetime.

3. The Loud Mouth

Where to begin with this friend? By loud mouth, it's not a means to say that they blurt things secrets out to others. They're just more prone to embarrassing you and everyone else in front of other friends about your short comings, but it's all in good faith! They teach you to laugh at yourself and that it's okay to embarrass yourself time and again. Best part is that they'll say the things you wouldn't dare say out loud and just shrug it off as nonchalantly as possible.

4. The Sister/Brother

These guys are your next level of defense and the first ones to back you up in a fight but also one of the very first to tell it to your face that you're wrong (or right, depending if they want to be nice about it). You may or may not have grown up with them as children, but the way you both will act around each other, you might as well have. You just broke up in your relationship? They'll be the very first ones with the Haagen Dazs and plotting your ex's demise. Someone continually keeps spreading rumors about you? They'll go ahead and confront the culprit. Bottom line, they're your second-in-command when things hit the fan.

5. The Advice Guru

This friend has pretty much been through it all and know exactly what advice to give you after you tell them your situation. Okay, maybe they haven't been through it all because every situation is different, but the similarities to their experiences is relatable and therefore, they are able to give the best advice they can.

6. The Worry Wart

There will always be that one friend who is going to worry about everyone. This isn't a way to say that everyone else doesn't care but this particular friend worries a lot for everyone's happiness and safety. They want everyone to be happy and enjoy themselves. When they know someone that's down in the dumps because of stress or relationships, they do everything they can to make sure that their friend is feeling better. They refuse to leave them feeling unwanted and unhappy. That's just not in their nature to.

7. The Event Planner

(Start at 2:28)

Literally, this is the friend you definitely want to have for successful hangouts, events, and/or get-togethers. They're well aware of who's on time, who's late, who's ready to help out, who's more than likely to procrastinate, and etc. Better yet, they make sure everyone arrives at the meeting point and time, actually on time, with the 15 to 30 minute grace period. For sure, most of everything will run as smooth as possible with improvisions and compromises here and there, to make everyone happy and satisfied. Anyone want to go to the candy store? Ice cream? No problem! They might be a stickler for time, but it's better than having people bail out last minute because things just so happened to come up.

Of course, there are plenty of other best friends floating around, not just these top 7 and all with different names to go by. They're the ones that keep a look out for you and make sure you keep yourself out of trouble. If you're hurt in any way, they'll be the first ones to ask, the 5 W's: Who, What, Where, When, and Why. They'll be your therapist and shoulder to cry on. Most importantly, they'll be the ones who will never let you fall and if they do, they make sure to pick you right back up. Treasure your best friends and treat them like family.
