24 Types Of Friends You’re Guaranteed To Have In High School

We all like to think that our group of friends is oh so special and unique. Sure, that might be true when we get down to the nitty gritty–because, yeah, we’re all our own person–but almost every friend group comprises of a lot of personality traits that can be found in friends groups around the world. What friend group doesn’t have a super high strung member? What about the person who is always angsting about not having a boyfriend? What about the one who you know you probably wouldn’t be friends with if you didn’t already know them for a billion years?

Our high school friend groups often consist of these types of people, and more. Here are just 24 of them that you can definitely identify in your own squad. Oh, and try to figure out which one you probably are.


1. The friend who won’t shut up about not having a boyfriend.


2. The friend who is in theatre and won’t stop singing or dancing at you.

5. The friend who you already know is going to end up being super successful in the future.
