On The Type of Friend I Am

Hello, it’s Amber from Girl with the Red Hair guest blogging for Mandy today!

When I think of Mandy’s blog the themes of friends and friendship really resonate with me. Maybe it’s because Mandy’s such a wonderful blog friend (probably) or maybe it’s because of her Lasting Impressions series (which I’m so excited for).

So today, I’ve decided to write about the type of friend that I think I am.

I am the type of friend who will be there for you whether you need a shoulder to cry on, someone to give you advice or just someone to listen.

I am the type of friend who will always think logically but will still occasionally go along with your craziest plan.

I am the type of friend that worries when you make some decisions, but usually will not say anything and let you go your own way.

I am the type of friend that enjoys nights in or drinks and girl talk over crazy nights at the bar.

I am the type of friend that sucks at keeping in touch, but will try my best through means like Facebook and texting.

I am the type of friend that gives hugs.

I am the type of friend that forgives too quickly.

I am the type of friend that never gets in the middle and does not enjoy drama.

I am not the type of friend that will be up for anything; if you call me last minute to go to the bar or a party I will likely turn you down. Especially if I’m already settled in for the night.

I am the type of friend that would pick you up from above mentioned bar or party when you call for a ride at 2 AM.

I am the type of friend who will try to get along with your spouse. Even if I think he’s a loser.

I am the type of friend who is quiet at first. Get to know me and you’ll see that I’m really not quiet at all.

I am the type of friend who thinks about, worries about and values all of you dearly. Even if I don’t always show it.

What type of friend are you?

I'm the type of friend that says I will go on a trip with you and actually follows through with it.

I am the type of friend that remembers your birthday every year.

I am the type of friend that is pretty practical and will tell you if I think you are being unreasonable. Especially when relationships and weddings are involved.

I am the type of friend who would prefer to catch up with you over a glass of wine or cup of coffee instead of at a loud, crowded bar.

* Great post, Amber! I'm with you on the not being up for last minute plans, esp if I am settled at home!

Very cool!

I am the type of friend who cares enough to speak up when you're making bad decisions or putting yourself at risk, because offering an outside opinion that comes from a place of love always feels worthwhile.

I'm the type of friend who will say those things once and then let them lie, and I'm not one who will badger you of make you feel guilty.

I'm the type of friend who always tries to relate to where you're coming from.

Love this post!

I am the type of friend that cries when you cry, laughs when you laugh, and loves when you love.

I am the type of friend who will beat someone up for you if the situation calls for it.

I am the type of friend who may not always be communicating with you but is always thinking of you.

I am the type of friend who gets giddy with excitement over low-key girl nights.

I am the type of friend to always care about you, no matter where you are life, no matter what you are doing, no matter if you talk to me or not.

Hmm, Mandy picks her guest bloggers well. I like.

Great guest post Amber! :) It's made me think about what kind of friend I am and what kind of friend I should be if I tried harder.

You sound like a great friend. Just the kind I need. I think I'm the kind of friend you can always rely on for a good laugh!

Mandy said...

Great post. I realized that I don't know what type of friend I am anymore. So something I should probably be thinking about.

I agree with you about being "settled in" for the night- I'm not good with last minute plans, it's funny though no one EVER calls me last minute anymore, all my friends are just used to it I guess.
Here are a few of mine:

I am the type of friend who will listen and provide sympathy when you need it or advice if you need that.

I am the type of friend who wants to see her friends happy all the time.

I am the type of friend who is always on your side.

I am the type of friend who is always so busy that I feel like I only see my friends when we are "catching up" these days.

Great qualities!!

I am the type of friend who will drop everything for a loved one in need.

Katie said...

You are an amazing friend. I'm here to say that. You always send me cards when I mention I'm down on my blog. Which I find absolutely amazing, and I say think you for far too little.

Thank you. You are amazing.

Love this post.

great post!

I am the friend that is reliable.

I am the type of friend that is common sense driven.

I am the type of friend who will tell you something once. After that it's up to you to make your own decision
