Toronto is the fourth largest city in North America and home to approximately 2.8 million people. With such a high population, how is it not possible to make different types of friends?
They say you are, who your friends are and yes that may be absolutely true. Whenever you're around a certain friend you tend to do the things the "two of you" like to do. Of course none of your friends are the same and they all have defining characteristics - after all, that's what makes them different.
All your friend have different interests, skills and goals. What kind of friends do you have? Here's a list including 11 different types of friends perhaps you have or need to have in Toronto:
1. The Bay Street baller
They mostly likely finished the Schulich or Ivy program and now they have a job/internship in the Financial district. Money is always on their mind and they strive to roll around in cash for the rest of their life.
2. The King Street clubber
This friend sneaks their way into every bar/club in Toronto. Their flirty attitude gets you and your friends into all the venues on King. They are the social butterfly of your group and have no shame in using their looks to an advantage.
