The Friend that is very smart

The Nerd. What can we say. They know everything on every topic. It’s slightly surreal. It’s as if they’re attending 20 schools at the same time. It is astounding that these people don’t fall asleep in lessons, because they probably know more than their teachers. Their grades never slip. No one ever questions them because you always know they are right.

Friend in distance

This person could have been any type of friend before they left to another country, but you have kept in touch because they mean a lot to you. They might visit or you might travel to them to see them. The only problem is that you might lose touch or because you don’t talk that much your friendship might start drifting.

Family friend

This is the friend that you don’t always want to have but have to socialise with because of your parents. Sometimes you will like them and sometimes you won’t, but that is okay. It can be awkward throughout the whole time your families are together or only at the start of the visit. This could be because of age or gender.

Friends that leave you out

If we’re honest with you, we wouldn’t consider this person a friend. If they don’t include you in anything then you should consider if you want to be their friend. If there is a party of sleepover and you are the only person who is not invited. This can make you feel sad and can even affect your self esteem. This is unhealthy.
