Friend groups are great. Seriously, they're fantastic – essential, vital, so important. They're hard, though – harder if there's an odd number in the group, I think. They're also all different, of course, because each and every one of us is different, but there are certain truths about most of them. The difficulties and the stereotypes don't detract from the general awesomeness of friend groups, though. If anything, the tragic truths about every friend group make them that much more amazing.
1. There is Always at Least One Party Animal 😺 🎉
Always. The party animal is fun – more so when you're younger, granted, and partying doesn't leave you exhausted and hungover for a week afterward. This is the friend who keeps all of you young, though. This is the friend you trust to spice up your wedding reception and your anniversary parties. And yeah, sometimes s/he will end up in your bathtub with a bottle of wine a three o'clock in the morning, but hey. It happens.
