There’s a new TikTok trend doing the rounds that insists we must all have precisely seven types of friends. No more, no less. Just seven.
And they must all be OuR EvEryThInG <3.
(If you aren’t immediately having Myspace flashbacks by this point then you’re out of my top eight).
Where did this latest fad come from? No one knows. But somewhere, somehow, in the dark bowels of the internet (I personally blame ChatGPT), the ‘7 Friend Theory’ has emerged – and it’s catching.
Watch: Work Wives – A Love Story. Post continues after video.
There are now literally reams and reams of girlies – and some lads in there too - who’ve made these cutesie lil videos about their besties and what extremely specific attributes they bring to the table of friendship. There’s even emotional backing music, to really drive the message home.
And that’s the secret to happiness, or so TikTokers would have you believe, and viewers are lapping it up with the hashtag #7friendtheory racking up more than 10.8 million views.
