What kind of friend are you?
You have the best friend, who is there through thick and thin, ride or die for you. These are the non-judgmental folks who will cry with you, tell you that you have a booger in your nose, that will tell you "yes girl, you do look fat in that". You can call them at any hour of the night, you tell them your deepest secrets. These people know all about your dirty past and in some cases your dirty present. These are the folks who will put sugar in your man's gas tank. True friends...Total count for me, six. Four girls, two guys. You know who you are, thanks and I love you for life! Do you think I have too many people I consider "best friends"?
Then there are the "all about me friends". Do you have a friend that calls you all the time, never to check on you, but to tell you about their latest news (bad and good). The folks that really could care less about what is going on with you. I have a friend, bless her heart, she will call and say "hey what's up" but before I answer, she has already started telling me her latest issue. Do I look like Dear Abby? Helping my best friends is not an issue, but these "all about me folks" can kiss my...
Don't forget about the "what can you do for me" friends. The ones you trade favors with..I'll do this if you will (fill in the blank) for me. Are these friends or bargain buddies? I call these Swap Meet Acquaintances. I have a fair share of these too.
My favorite type of friend is the "because I have to be". Anyone in a sorority or fraternity know all about these. The chick you really wouldn't give a damn about if it wasn't for the fact that you spent six weeks in a basement together...hhmmmm. Or what about your significant others "best friends"? Luckily my man has some down ass boys, but a couple of them could definitely do without. Yeah I smile and I am nice...but inside I'm like "look at this fool".
My challenge for you, be a good friend to all. You don't have to be the best, but keep in touch, call to say hi, do a good deed for somebody without expecting something in return.
My question for you is this...what kind of friend are you? Is it time for a friend make-over? Tell me about your "types" of friends...I know I left a couple categories out. If you know me on this level, tell me how I'm doing Do I suck too? lol
