We meet people and we make friends. Some friends stay for life some for weeks and some we don’t even want to remember! I have made very good friends over the last three decades that I managed on this planet! Some of these friendships are from school, some from college, some from staying together. I have made many friends while working as well. Yes some colleagues can turn friends of life. And I have made great friends through my blog and my online life. What are the types of friends you come across in your life? I have both crazy friends and sober friends and I love them all. Let’s find out the 3 types of friends I have in my life that I am thankful for.

types of friends

Types of Friends #1 – The one who is your confidante

A friend with whom you can share everything – secrets, boy talks (problems), rather life in general. This friend is your guiding star and you look forward to their opinions and they have a big part in your decision making. I am this kind of a confidante for a few, though, but let’s keep that for some other time. I am thankful I have some of these girls whom I can confide to with anything weird happening in life (or inside my head, most of the time)

Type of Friends #2 – The one who is crazy AF like you

Just like how you need one to confide in, you also need those crazy friends who share your craziness for things. That kind of friend who are always ready to be partner in crimes, that kind of friend who doesn’t think twice before jumping into something with you. I have told you how I vanished for a girl’s trip before my marriage. At one time I had made a plan of a weekend Bangkok trip with one of my girls when I was still in college without anyone’s knowledge! *hopefully my mom dad are not reading this* But it didn’t materialize somehow. But I like my friends who can be crazy willingly

Type of Friends #3 – The one from the opposite sex

I think I get along with guys a little better than girls, well that was the situation in college and university! I have many friends from the opposite sex who are my friends for life and we are still quite together though we don’t live in the same city. I have made good friends at work too one of whom is as close as a brother and I can drive him crazy at times. He can also tell me to shut up when I *supposedly* am eating his head unnecessarily!

    It’s so important to have a nice variety of friends. Ones who you know will be with you through thick and thin. Cheers to good friends!

    You’re so right! I also need that low-maintenance friend who I still know is there for me even if we don’t talk for a while. Lives get busy but I still love everyone in my life!

    I guess one friend from the opposite sex is equally important. He can judge you from a man’s perspective without the ladies jealous mind.

    We concur on No2. Crazy friends work well for me since I’m not the crazy kind myself – they bring such zing in my life. As for the other two – we all need someone to confide in as also a person from the opposite sex who gives you a different perspective.

    I admit that I am still trying to understand what to do for the linky parties. I get the concept and it sounds cool but it sounds overwhelming and it shouldn’t for some reason. Ah well. :0(

    I think it is a great idea to have different kinds of friends. Each of them provides you with different things. I am thankful for all the ones I have.
