The 10 Millennials Found In Every Group Chat

You've definitely seen these people before.

If you have an iPhone (or even if you don't, respect to those of you still out there with Galaxies), you know the struggle/fun/craziness that is THE group chat.

You know the one- that main chat you've had since forever ago that's always blowing up your phone. Chances are if you're in one, you have a love/hate relationship with it. Chances are you also can recognize the different types of people that can be found in EVERY group chat.

Some of these might apply to more than one person, just as one person might possess many of these. In any case, you've definitely been one of these people before whether you realized it or not (and I can tell you I'm guilty of almost everyone on this list).

1. The "Look At This!" Guy

We all know this guy. This is the person who is constantly finding and sharing online quizzes, whether they're from Buzzfeed, Cosmo, Facebook (or who knows where). Of course, the quiz person needs to send ALL of them in the chat and tells everyone to "omg take this RIGHT NOW!". And personally, you could care less what celebrity is your long-lost twin or why your personality is compatible with a pop tart, but if it makes quiz guy happy, you'll occasionally oblige.

2. The Landfill

If you are this person, don't feel bad. Every group needs one. This is the person who, of no fault of their own, just automatically becomes the subject of everyone's teasing and sarcasm- essentially a dump. It doesn't matter what they do. Whether they send a funny meme or tell a story about their day or even just don't say anything, they are ROASTED and roasted HARD for no apparent reason. PSA: To all of the roastee's out there, you are not alone. You WILL get through this... someday.

3. The "Lord Almighty"

Pardon my slight misuse of the name here, but this is just that one person who somewhat steers the mood and direction of the whole chat. This is the type of person who could say the most random or crazy comment ever and everyone would treat it as if it came from the very mouth of God. They could just simply say "hi" and the entire chat will light up with responses and compliments. They can post a Snapchat of a good sunset and everyone will be shook. They can send one Hannah Montana meme and it will make everyone's day. This guy doesn't ever need to try because he is automatically loved by everyone. *Jason, yes this is completely about you*.

4. The Loud One

This is the chick who is ALWAYS saying something in the group chat. She's constantly telling stories or asking questions or just being VERY present. This is the type of person that might not be the best at knowing how to read a mood or when the chat is just taking a break or when everyone's busy and can't talk. This girl may come off as an annoyance some of the time, but deep down everyone loves her and will listen to her stories just for the sake of listening (at least I hope you do, guys??).

5. The Laugh King

My all time favorite. This is the guy who is constantly making everyone *literally* laugh out loud (or even just slightly chuckle on the inside). And most of his craft lies in memes. Endless memes. Memes for days. MEMES FOREVER. This guy must either spend hours each day scouring the internet and iFunny or have an actual person he pays to get his meme fix, because in every (and I do mean EVERY) situation, he somehow always has a limitless supply of memes and jokes that are perfectly applicable to whatever's happening in the chat.

6. The Looooooooong Paragrapher

If this is you, no worries- I've been guilty of this one many a time. This is the girl who just has all the feelings. ALL of them. ALL THE TIME. At least once a week, she'll compose a novel, complete with historical references, alludes to the most classic works of literature, and a full bibliography, and send it in the group chat. These multiple paragraphs are usually something along the lines of how much she loves everyone or how much of a hard time she's been having lately or how much she misses being with her friends. This girl is definitely predictable and yes, reading books in text form can get old, but everyone secretly enjoys the sentiment and love contained in these multi-paragraphs... right?

7. The "Lie Low" Guy

This is that one guy in the chat who was added at the beginning for some weird reason that no one remembers and is just kind of... there. He doesn't say anything or contribute to the conversation. He doesn't ever reply when someone asks him a question, even when they know that he read it. He just sits there and lays low. Listens. Watches... waiting to move in for the kill.

8. The Late One

This is the guy who NEVER enters a conversation at the right time. He always misses important dates and questions. He's always late by at least an hour and by the time he does reply, the conversation has already moved on. He tries desperately to find his way back in, but somehow always has the bad luck of not looking at or being around his phone when the conversation is really lit. Or he has the conversation on mute. @Marshall

9. The Lost One

This is the person in the chat who never understands what's going on. When someone tells a joke or sends a meme, they'll respond 5 minutes later with a vague "haha". When someone tells a story, they'll reply with the classic "lol". When someone shares news that affects the whole group, they'll come into the conversation with a good old "what?". Much like the late one, this person just doesn't keep up or must simply have better things to do. Sorry we aren't good enough for you, Charissa.

10. The Lit One

This is the dude who ALWAYS knows how to keep it lit. He'll send memes at the right time, he'll tell a joke when the chat is getting awkward, he'll be the first to send a hello text when the chat's been dead for a few days. This guy just knows how to keep the party going and he makes everybody smile, no matter what the topic is. This is the guy we all need in our group chats, honestly.


The next time you get a text in your main group chat, check which one of these categories that person fits into. I guarantee you, you will find something to fit everyone. Or if not, let me know the different types of people you've found in your group chats! There's some characters out there, for sure.

A Thank You To My Boyfriend's Family

Because you are so important to him, you are important to me.

This one isn't easy to sit down and write because nothing I could say would do all of you justice in the way that I would hope I could. These are just words, but I hope that I am able to always show my thank you to you by treating him like the prince he is.

I can replay the moment of meeting each and every one of you all over and over in my head like it was yesterday. I was so extremely nervous every single time and I was trying to gather all the "right" things to say that would leave a good, first-lasting impression and that at the end of the day, you all would like me.

I think one of the most important basis and hopes in my relationship is that my significant other's family likes who I am. This is so important to me because whatever is important to him is equally important to me and your thoughts of me are crucial to our relationship.

The second I walked in the door, I was overwhelmed—overwhelmed with such a love. I had no idea at that point in time just how much you would all mean to me and how thankful I am for all of you!

Thank you for constantly making me laugh and feel at home.

Whenever I'm coming over for a family gathering or just to hang out, I know right off that I am walking into a world of laughter and good times are right beside that. You are all so entertaining and always have a good story to tell me. I can't name one time where I didn't feel like I was home.

And I appreciate the sweet, embarrassing photos and stories about my boyfriend that you all share with me! Even if it is by a photo, I have a glimpse of what his life has always been like thanks to each and every one of you individually.

Thank you for sharing your special moments in life with me.

You don't ever have to, but you invite me anyway. Whether it's just a family gathering, a birthday, or a holiday, I am thankful to have spent those times celebrating these moments in life alongside such amazing people. It's humbling and heartwarming to be a part of memories so unforgettable that you all share and that you have welcomed me to be a part of. They are days that I will never forget and have a place in my heart forever.

Thank you for always being there for him.

Since we have started dating, I have watched the way that you guys love him. I have watched the individual relationships and moments that you share with him make a difference in who he is. I have seen you all love and support him, no matter what he was doing.

With everything that comes along in life, this has been a simple reminder of an unconditional, loving, sacrificing family that is also the best support system. You are not only impacting him, but me, too.

Thank you for welcoming me in like your own.

Whenever you have to brave up and meet your significant other's family, I can say, for myself, that I didn't know what to expect. As I'm sure, none of you did when meeting me. Today, I catch myself wondering why I even worried in the first place. You all have welcomed me in your own ways and made me feel right at home. It is not always easy to do that with just anyone, but you have all taken the time to get to know me. And now I know that if I ever needed anything, I can call one of you.

Thank you for letting me date him.

I am most thankful for this. Thank you for sharing him with me and giving me a chance to show you all how important he is to me. I never thought that I would luck out and meet someone as special, kind, and wonderful as he is, but I did.

You have supported our relationship, given me a chance to love him, and welcomed me to new adventures in love and family. I have the upmost gratitude for each of you. You are the most wonderful, welcoming, and loving family. I am overjoyed to be able to experience just a glimpse of this life with him and with all of you.

5 Times Being The Dad Friend Doesn't Leave You Wondering What Happened Last Night

Ah, the noblest of positions.

24

For some reason, it seems that this role is often associated with the boring friend or the friend that doesn't go out often. This doesn't have to be true. There are a lot of perks when you are the responsible friend.

1. You are always in control.

All of your other friends who are making dumb decisions ultimately look to you to make the tough calls throughout the night, regardless of whether they like them or not.

2. Your friends will always appreciate you keeping them alive.

They might be mad in the moment at you telling them to not jump off of a roof, but when everything settles, they are usually pretty appreciative of your efforts. Always remember, no man, or woman, left behind. If you end the night with everyone alive, you did a job well done.

3. It makes you look a lot better.

If you do it the right way, people around you will notice that you are the responsible one. You might even get a few acknowledgments of your efforts. Nothing is cooler than looking like the dude that has everything under control. And if you can't get everything under control, nothing looks better than trying to keep your friends from death.

4. You always remember exactly what happened.

The classic "what happened last night" question is nonexistent because you are able to tell the whole group all of the dumb, hilarious things that they did. Nothing is better than actually remembering first hand the memories that you and your buddies will talk about for years.

5. When you want to leave, everyone is leaving.

Whether you drove or not, once you are able to wrangle everyone up, there's an understanding that when the dad friend thinks it's a good time to leave, it's probably a good time to leave.

Being the "dad friend" doesn't mean that you aren't able to have any fun, it's just a different kind of fun. If you are this type of friend, I salute you, and for those of you who aren't, be sure to thank your dad friend next time you get the chance.
