You would have heard the saying that friends are our chosen family. It’s quite true coz our family, our relatives are already chosen by God. But God gave us the freedom to choose friends. Be it school, college, workplace or social media, we gain friends of different personalities at every stage of life. Some stay longer, some leave us in the mid-way. But every friend creates memories in our life. Those memories which stay with us till our last breath, memories that become a reason for our smile and also the memories that become a testimonial of the happy life that we lead.
Oh, wait! I am not here to make you emotional. I am just here to summarise the different types of friends all of us would have had in our lives.
Let me start with the list of the different types of friends I have witnessed in life and hope you too would have.

These are only a few types of friends that I have mentioned here. I am sure you would have experienced such friends in your life too. If you have had friends who were out of these 45 mentioned types, you can mention them in the comments section.
The number of friends doesn’t matter. What matters is that do you have friends who can stay by your side at every good and bad time of life. Value those who are with you because friends are the ones who come into our lives as a dose of happiness and entertainment.
The safest ship to sail would be friendship.
