The 11 Types Of Friends You Probably Have

Illustrated by Jenny Kraemer.
On the whole, I have a kind of house cat personality. It’s not that I don’t like people or socializing — I do. I just really love my house and — perhaps a little disproportionately — my own company. But, I also find that as I get older, I begin to enjoy my friends more and more. Spending time with my friends, although sometimes an effort because of kids and jobs and life, becomes more fulfilling as time goes on.
That said, some friends are easier to hang out with than others. In fact, some friends aren’t actually my friends at all, which is baffling. The more I thought about it, the more I needed to break it down and figure it out. Of course, anyone who knows me (my friends!) knows that I love a category breakdown. I think I covered most, but please feel free to add your own, and if some of these personalities are actually guys, that's cool, too.
You've probably noticed by now that, in addition to being adorable, Zooey Deschanel is also really, really funny. So, it only makes sense that when she founded HelloGiggles, she enlisted the help of Sophia Rossi and Molly McAleer to create a hub for hilarity. Trust, the musings of HG — including this one from Amy Foster — will have you laughing out loud.
