We live in a hard world, and it is worse without people whom you can depend on. Friends undoubtedly form such an important part of our lives that they make life look easy and cheerful. Their strengths balance your shortcomings and vice-versa and for this reason, a diverse friend circle can truly enrich your life. Such a friend circle can be a source of inspiration and support at the same time. However, in this highly superficial world, a lot of times we confuse acquaintances with friends. A real friend is someone who sticks by you in your thick and thin, no matter what, and honestly speaking, most men lack real friends. The biggest reason behind this is the fact that most men do not see friendships as their priorities and tend to operate on shallow relationships.


Today in this article we shall take a look at an ideal posse of friends. If you happen to have these in your circle, consider yourself fortunate.

1. The Right Hand Man

This is the man you proudly call your best buddy. This is that friend who serves in different roles, whenever and where ever you need them. He is the guy who gives you company in social events and gives you confidence in interacting with the opposite sex. The two of you share a connection so deep that you can communicate with each other without having to speak(well, sometimes).

2. The Role Model

This is the man you approach for advice on matters as trivial as the colour of your outfit. Somehow, He has a great sense of everything. He is uber smart, he is mature and he is more charismatic than you can ever be. He is the one that always does the right thing at the right place and at the right time. You cannot help but admire him for all the right reasons.

3. The Office Pal

He is the person who gives you company when you do not want to eat your lunch in solitude every day at the office. The first one to get updates on the happenings of your workplace, he keeps you updated with bits and pieces you weren’t supposed to know. But, he is a tricky friend and you need to be sure to be extra careful when talking to him about your boss or another colleague because a slip of tongue can get you in trouble.

4. The Optimist

Well, we all face hard times and quite often you would want to give up. He is the guy who will come to your rescue. The guy who shows you the brighter side of the darkest of situations and makes you believe in yourself. If you are an ambitious gentleman and dream of building an empire, make sure you have one of these in your posse, you will need him.

5. The Critic

An essential character in a group of dreamers, he keeps you grounded. He will strike down all your magnanimous plans with logic you could not even comprehend. This friend will remind you that life isn’t as easy as it seems and that you have to embrace reality and be ready for failures to eventually be successful.

6. The Female Best friend

Whether be it shopping for your outfits or buying presents for someone special, she knows what works best.  What is even better is you always have a date for a nightclub. You get to party at the coolest clubs without burning a hole in your pocket. And the best of it all, she is always ready to set you up with someone or the other. If you do not have a female best friend already, please do get one and thank us later.

7. The Wild Card

The most spontaneous and unpredictable guy in the group, his actions always amuse you. He is persistent with the ladies and is quick with romantic advice. At times he would be the guy you need the most and at other times you will wonder as to why you guys are even friends. He is the guy that doesn’t generally gets serious about stuff like relationships and career but once he does, there is nothing he cannot do. 

8. The Childhood Friend

He is the guy who has been there all along. He has been there with you through the awkward faces of your life and is still going strong. You can trust him with pieces from your past and plans for your future. He is the one with whom you relish your childhood memories over a cup of coffee. You have so much in common that you never fall short in conversation with this man.

Now, if you are lucky enough to have all these in your friend circle, good for you. If not get out there and buddy up. You don’t want to be missing out on the good stuff in life. All the best!

Until next time.

Yours truly.
