Friends are the family we choose for ourselves. Every woman should have these five kinds of pals to count on for completely different things. If you can find even one who embodies any of the characteristics that follow, you can consider yourself fortunate.
1. The Uplifter
This woman's favorite word: yes. You could tell her you're trading your six-figure income for a career in off-track betting, and she'd barely pause before yelping “Go for it!” Don't you need someone who looks past the love handles to notice the extraordinarily gorgeous you? She’ll be someone to always lift your spirits.
2. The Travel Buddy
This is the friend you can always rely on for a quick dash to anywhere, even when it isn’t the most comfortable ride or the best location; she is always up for an adventure and is the mischievous kind.
3. The Truth Teller
Intent is what separates the constructive from the abusive. Once you've established that the hard news is spoken in love (not in jealousy or malice), you'd be smart to seek out this woman's perspective.
4. The Girl Who Just Wants to Have Fun
This partnership is about spontaneous good times. You need a friend like this to always pull you out of sad situations and make you create memories that you can always look back on and laugh.
5. The Unlikely Friend
There is always that one friend who people see with you and go “Oh?” The unlikely friend may be direct opposites with you, older, a different race or just someone who wouldn’t have seen yourself with in years, but for some reason you both click.
