There’s no doubt that in our life, we come across different sets of people – whom we all friends. Starting with our school life and then our college life, we encounter ‘n’ number of friends who are different in their own way. But mind me without even of them, your college life would be incomplete. I mean each one of those ‘different types of friends’ are important to us in one way or the other. They tend to teach us a few important things that stay with us all through our lives
Some maybe special and some maybe so irritating that you will feel like killing them. But for once, thinking our lives without them is impossible. We need someone with who could have serious talks, someone for those funny chats, someone who we could look up to during submission of assignments and before exams, someone whom we laugh on, someone whom we bitch with and some whom we could bitch about (just kidding :P).
So, here’s the list of 10 types of friends we encounter in our college era.
1. The Serious One’s
‘Bhai dekh mein mazak ke mood mein nahi hu’, ‘Dude, life isn’t all about fun, be serious’… There is always one person in your group who is all so serious about things. Sometimes, he is a pain in the ass that irritates you with his oh – so – serious talks but then on second thoughts you know you have a companion in them when you are on for serious talks. When you need an advice for something, you can just rely on them blindly.
2. The Funny One’s
And for the people who come under this category, life is just about fun. They find fun in everything that’s going on. They might make you laugh till your stomach aches and tears flow down your eyes because of excess laughing. You know for sure that they can bring a smile to your face when smiling and laughing is the last thing on your mind.
3. Padhai mein dhund dost
Now, these people are eternally committed to studies. They eat study, drink study, sleep study yaha tak ki they date studies. For them fun, dating, making out, relationships, gossips is like an omen – a bad habit. They are too boring in that sense. But one thing is for certain, that with them by your side you don’t need to worry about your studies, assignments and exams.
4. The Fashionistas
Your hot – shot friends who bring glamour into your group. I am sure those who have hot – shot fashionista friends would have experienced a time when guys and girls come up to you asking ‘Bhai is bandi ko patwade’, ‘Yaar, this guy is so cute. Can you just you know do our setting’? Sometimes you actually get so irritated with their pestering that you regret making them your friend but then you know you are lucky to have someone like them who can help you get ready for the fresher’s, farewell and other parties.
5. The Drunkards
A group of friends without a daru pine wala banda is impossible. There’s always a friend who loves drinking and drinks so much that sometimes he goes out of control but then it’s good to have such a friend who’s into drinking because he can be a great drinking partner when you want to drink.
6. The Bunkers/ Inactive College Goers
Now, when there are active students in your class, there are also inactive students who are more like eid ka chand. They prefer coming to college and bunking their classes and going for a movie or trying a new food joint. With them by your side, you are tension free when you feel like bunking because you know you have company.
7. The Fighter Friend
This friend of yours is for sure a fighter. They love getting into fights, sometimes they actually urge someone to get into a fight just because they feel like fighting. They are hot blooded and short tempered. But, you know for a fact that you are safe with them they won’t anyone hurt you and would be protective towards you.
8. The Innocent looking but ‘Knows – It – all’ friend
Now there’s always a friend who acts innocent but understand all the cheap and dirty jokes. They understand all the double meaning jokes before you even start thinking over it. They are like the groups ‘Search engine’.
9. The Selfie – Obsessed Friend
No doubt, the craze of Selfie is across all continents alike. And I am cent percent sure that you all have that one friend who loves clicking pictures and selfies. And thanks to them, your gallery is never empty – it’s full of selfies and pictures of yours taken by them.
10. The Tharki Friends
Now this category of friends, there are all about checking girls and guys. In short, they are BIG – TIME JERKS? You want to know about a girl/ guy and this friend of yours will be your greatest help. But mind me, just because they are big – time tharki’s doesn’t mean they can’t be good friends. They can be your bestest of friends.
And there I end my article if you think any other category should be included do tell because I am quite sure that 10 is just too less a number. There are many more types of friends we meet in our college life.
