Friends as Messaging Apps

Messaging apps are what you use to stay connected with friends, but ironically, your friends can also be labelled as one of those messaging apps. Read along and then pick a friend for each category.


This type of friend is the most reliable one in the squad. When the other squad members may be skipping classes for various reasons only to suffer with assignments and homework later, this friend will save the day as they remain duly present in every class. This friend is always in touch with the latest gossip and will be sure to spread the news to your squad. Also, unlike your other friends, they give versatile reactions to whatever you say.


This is that trendy friend with whom you love to share your fashion choices. Also, when you feel like spilling your secrets to somebody but at the same time you don't want that somebody to delve deeper into the recesses of those tales, this friend is the one to seek. As soon as you confide in what's been bothering you, they listen, give you the soulful support, and then just drops the matter entirely to give you space. Soothing, isn't it?


This friend of yours is the typical, quirky fangirl or fanboy. Both of you go insane over the same artists and brands and cry to the same movie scenes. Moreover, this friend is always well aware of the latest celebrity gossip and takes great enthusiasm in informing anyone who lives under a rock.


All friends are special in some way or the other. But there is that one friend in everybody's life whose face, itself, exudes a sense of immeasurable serenity. You just need to see that friend, messy and homely, while both of you go on about the depths of your lives. You always allow this friend to look into your vulnerable self whenever you go through an emotional turmoil.


Also known as the local friend. This friend keeps you in touch with all the people who inhabit your contact list. Moreover, this buddy is a simpleton and keeps things to themselves.


The speciality of this friend is that they are a living friend-radar. Suppose you two are eating out at a café, but this friend will suddenly beam and call somebody else to join in and the moment you crane your neck to see who that is, you will see another friend of yours. This scenario keeps repeating as this friend will always find a way to include more people as they can easily socialise.


This friend is the cool-headed, collected one. In the chaos of the group chats or public conversations, this pal of yours will be the one who can easily reply to a specific person. They are organised from the get-go and are an esoteric favourite.
