The 6 Types of Friends You Have In Your Twenties

Getting older is hard. Adulthood throws water on you while you're sleeping and slaps you when you're trying to fall asleep. Wow, two strong metaphors and I'm off to a great start. You may grow closer or apart from people, realize what you need in a healthy relationship, or mourn the loss of a good one. But with age comes understanding and maybe a little more confidence. New or old, here are types of friends you have in your twenties!

1.Work Wife

You spend most of your day in the office so it's pretty natural to develop friendships (or more!) everyday. Your work wife is your-go-to-gal (or guy). Lunches, elevator rides, or corporate retreats, they are there for you when you need it most. You eventually develop a relationship outside of the office be it brunching on the weekend or Real Housewives viewing parties. And don't fret if you find a new job, your work wife will be your friend forever.

2. The Resurgence of High School Friends

As Vitamin-C put it "as we go on, we remember all the times we, had together. And as our lives change, come whatever, we will still be friends forever". Wow, powerful stuff. But also, mostly true. Whether you've been tight with the same crew from middle school till now, or reconnected with high school friends after graduating college, they don't go too far. And if you don't get to see them as often as you'd like, the get togethers around thanksgiving and Christmas, or weddings and births, will always be a reliable relationship.

3. The ‘I Wanted To Try A New Thing And I Got A New Friend Out Of It' Friend

So you join a local soccer team or organized a book club. It can be hard to make friends as you get older and you've found your place. Meeting once a week, or a few times a month, has brought you in closer and you realize, the world of friendship isn't as scary as it needs to be. You got outta your comfort zone and found friends. Hizzah!

4. The ‘Pal Who Moved to My City And Doesn't Know Anybody But Is Actually Really Cool' Friend

Your mom calls you up and demands you get drinks with this lovely girl from the other side of the country. She just moved to your city and knows no one. You get drinks, then dinner, and eventually realize that not only does it feel good to be nice but listening to your mom, can bring you new friends in life.

5. A Group of Friends Brought A Group Of Friends To A Party And Now I Like One Individually, Friend

Mixing friend groups can be tricky. Your passive aggressive friend might be rude to someone else's date. But like a rare blue moon, sometimes you find a long-lost sister in the blended group. You didn't need to have your guard up because we are all humans trying to figure out this crazy world. And because of this new friend, you join a new group of friends, creating a loving snowball effect.

6. I Dated A Guy And All I Got Was This (Not So) Lousy Friend

You booted the guy but landed a pall! You never know who your significant other deems worthy of a friendship but when it's good, it's great. And sometimes you have to leave a romantic relationship but still get to keep the friends you met, shared, or created. You share a bond, and sometimes it's a secret, which makes your friendship extra special.
