5. The Group Friendship

In this friendship, everybody is friends and everybody hangs out. It’s like a platonic-emotion orgy.

7. The Vacay Friend

They may not see each other often, but they are allll about carousing in leisurely places. You follow them on Instagram purely to see if they will ever get arrested in a foreign country.

12. The Fangirls

These friends are over-flowing with energy and opinions about every little thing, and they generally tend to follow a single, ruthless leader.

13. The Not-So-Secretly-in-Love Friends

These friends tend to lock eyes just a little too long… and they stand just a little too close. Why don’t they just freaking admit it already??

Here’s hoping we can all strike up some new butterfly friendships of our own. Happy National Learn About Butterflies Day!
