When it comes to friendship, quality is more important than quantity, and it is important to surround yourself with the right people to boost your happiness. Here are the five types of friend everyone should have.
The agony aunt or uncle
The agony aunt or uncle is the perfect person to have onboard when you are facing a crisis - no matter how big or small.
The laugh-a-minute mate
The party pal, the group comedian, the life and soul of the party...We all know one of these people - or if you don't, you should.
The painfully honest pal
Although complete, uncensored honesty is not always welcome, sometimes it is necessary if it will only save you further pain along the road.

The finishes-your -sentences friend
Sometimes in life you come across a person so completely on your wavelength you could have been separated at birth. This is that friend.
The inspirational motivator
Otherwise known as Little Miss or Mr Perfect, the inspirational motivator makes you feel inspired and infuriated in pretty equal measures.
