With everyone jumping on the "giving advice to people in their 20's" train I thought I would throw my 2 cents in... in GIFs, obviously. Before we start "Late" 20's is 25+ or when you start yawning at the bar... which ever comes first.
This friend writes on your facebook wall, tweets you AND sends you a text on your birthday. You may not talk everyday any more, but when you do see them it is like you never missed a day of each others lives. They really can't afford to not be friends with you... you have too much dirt on them, most likely in the form of intricately folded pieces of notebook paper.
Bonus Points: They save you from any family gathering in your hometown because well you "have to go get drinks with them because you only get to see them once a year".
2. The Emergency Happy Hour Friend
This friend has the psychic power to tell when you need a good stiff drink after a long day or particularly hard event in life. You need them in your life to help justify a second glass of chardonnay on a Tuesday night.
Bonus Points: These friends make the best "Saturday night in your late 20's" friends... usually those nights consist of throwing major shade on those in their early 20's.
3. The Complainer Friend
Bonus Points: Neither one of you complain about the other one complaining about complaining.
4. The "Not Involved" Friend
cootie catcher. They are imperative for sanity.
Bonus Points: They're real fun to bring around said "inner" circle and watch them watch/interact.
5. The Competitive Friend
Salt 'N Pepa. They are the friend whom you might stalk on various forms of social media just to make sure they haven't won a nobel peace prize or something overnight. Their accomplishments push you and your accomplishments push them.
Bonus Points: The world is definitely a better place because you are trying to out do each other.
6. The Group Text Friend(s)
Bonus Points: Unlimited texting, remember the world without it? (oh sorry cute boy I can't text you i'm over my 100 text limit for the month)
7. The Drop Everything Friend
Bonus Points: You get paid in alcohol and pizza (or a nice dinner if you are in your late, late 20's).
8. The Work Friend
Bonus Points: This friendship normally includes some sort or after work drinks or random Wednesday baked goods because the other person "was in the mood".
