~Woke up like this~, did you? Ugh. How did this friend get all the good genes? Must they be so pretty? Skin so smooth. Hair glossy like expensive car polish. Sometimes life is so unfair.

2. The Embarrassingly Awkward Friend

You can't take this friend anywhere. They make awkward jokes at the most inopportune moments, and frequently induce cringe. But they also know how to get a laugh out of you, so you can't help but love them.

3. The Friend in a Terrible Relationship

Terrible Relationship Friend complains incessantly, but when it comes down to it, can't part with their sociopath partner. You've just gotta stick by them and hope they'll see the light eventually.

5. The Wild Friend

Friendship with Wild Friend is a headache, literally. You need Advil, bacon, and a soft pillow to recover from a night out with Wild Friend. But is it worth it? Totally. Wild Friend brings the fun.

6. The Friend Who Can't Keep a Secret

Will preface your secret with "Don't tell anyone, but..." as they secretly tell every single human and animal that thing you really don't want anyone to know. And now everyone knows. And now it's on the internet. But don't worry, we won't tell anyone. ;)

7. The Emotional Friend

This friend experiences all of the emotions, all of the time. And you never know which emotions you're going to get. So it's best to come prepared, with tissues and vodka and some kind of self-defense shield. You know, just in case.

8. The Unreliable Friend

This friend never turns up when they say they will, but is always soooo sorry for it. And you always forgive them, because you are weak. But also because you're nice, and forgiving, and a total hero.

9. The Aggressive Matchmaker

Hey, you're single, right? 'Cause Aggressive Matchmaker Friend knows someone really cool and nice that you should totally meet. You really deserve someone special, so you can be as happy as they are!

10. The Annoying-as-Sh*t Friend

Seriously. Love you man, but stahp that.
