There are ten types of friends, some close, some not so close

Tuesday, 11 April, 2017

Just about everything you could possibly want, or need, to know about friends, and friendships. For instance, your acquaintances are spread across four tiers, from closest friends, to strangers, and within that cluster, there are ten types of friends.

Tier 3 friends – your Not Really friends. You might grab a one-on-one drink with one of them when you move to their city, but then it surprises neither of you when five years pass and drink #2 is still yet to happen. Your relationship tends to exist mostly as part of a bigger group or through the occasional Facebook like, and it doesn’t even really stress you out when you hear that one of them made $5 million last year. You may also try to sleep with one of these people at any given time.
