6 Types Of Friends You’ll Find Yourself Breaking Up With In Your 20s

Recently my social media has been blowing up with memes about how “the best friends are the ones who have known you the longest,” “your best friends are the ones from childhood,” blah, blah, blah. While I can appreciate the sentiment and well-meaning nature of these statements superimposed over cheesy stock photos, I can’t help but cringe just the tiniest whenever I see one on Instagram.

Whether it’s cutting them off cold turkey or gradually letting them fade into Facebook oblivion, here are several kinds of friendships that you need to end- no matter how hard it is.
