What Kind Of Mum Friend Are You In Your Friendship Group?

The mum friend of the friendship group can take many forms.

Posted on
  1. I help them study.
    I bring them snacks at the most crucial times of need.
    I'm there to talk them through the inevitable existential crisis when they think they're definitely going to fail.
    I get them pumped up and make sure that they study rather than procrastinate.
  2. When someone is being mean to them or they're angry.
    During an existential crisis.
    When they need some help being an adult.
    I'll squeeze it out of them before they even have to turn to me.
  3. I try and make them feel welcome and accepted.
    I ask them lots and lots of questions to see if they're worthy of my friend.
    Obviously, I make them aware of the repercussions that they'll face if they hurt my friend.
    I list all the incredibly achievements and qualities of my friend that I know they'd be too humble to say themselves.

  5. I tell my friend that this person isn't worth their trouble.
    I take them out to get their mind off it.
    I remind them of how incredible they are and how everyone is just JEALOUS.
    FIGHT THEM.
  6. "How could you possibly even think that? Of course you're beautiful, just look at your perfect cheekbones!"
    "OK, you're beautiful, but that doesn't even matter considering how incredible you are in every single way."
    "How many more times can I tell you that you're beautiful?"
    "Fuck off, yes you're beautiful and you're stupid if you don't think you are."
  7. I remind them how fucking fantastic they are and try and get them back in the game ASAP.
    I wallow with them and let them rant and cry to me as much as they need to.
    FIGHT THEM.
    All of the above.

What Kind Of Mum Friend Are You In Your Friendship Group?

You got: Classic mum

You are the well-respected and universally recognised Mum Friend of your group. You are the one that brings order to chaos and ensures that those around you don't fall into anarchy. You're responsible and caring, but also assertive and pragmatic. You'll tell your friends what they need to hear, not what they want to. You're always there to give support and advice, as well as the occasional kick up the arse.

You got: Fighty mum

People feel like when they have you on their side, they cannot possibly lose. You're calm and generally rational if someone is being aggressive towards you, but if they even think of not being perfectly wonderful to your friends, you see red. You're incredibly loyal and outspoken, and at your very heart there is nothing but love and affection for those important to you.

You got: Worry mum

You're the human personification of "Text me when you're home so I know you're safe". You'll remember all the important events – not just birthdays, but rehearsals, exams, and first dates. You're thoughtfulness incarnate and you're genuinely concerned for the wellbeing of your friends. You're an absolute gem, as precious as the care packages you no doubt send to your far-away friends.

You got: Supportive mum

You're much like the classic mum friend, but with a slightly more backseat approach. You don't enforce anything and have no interest in telling people how to live their lives. Rather, you're the biggest fan anyone could ever ask for and the non-judgemental wisdom-dispenser in times of need. You're always there, glowing with pride at the achievements of all your friends, and ready to listen to any of their problems should you need to.
