11 Whatsapp Groups Every BFF Squad Has
We probably spend more of our time communicating with friends via our phones than we do in real life. When it comes to staying in touch, you all know these groups, don’tcha?
Obvs, your number one Whatsapp group is dedicated to your lifelong best girls. And while you might literally discuss every topic under the sun, this is the place where big news breaks. We’re talking engagements, which mate from school is now pregnant with triplets and screenshots of how gross your ex-boyfriend has become in the last two years.
Depending what kind of relationship you have with your house mates, this could be the Whatsapp group you dread the most. yes, you’ve left the dishes unwashed, yes, you forgot to take the bins out, no you haven’ t stuck to the cleaning rot a .* silences group and moves out*
3 [Insert Name]’s Birthday
One in around 20 temporary Whatsapp groups are set up to discuss secret birthday plans, presents and screen shots from ASOS. All well and good until you post on the wrong group and totally ruin someone’s birthday. #oopsies
4 Work Hunz
you can message each other from across the room and discuss important matters such as: can i get away with doing the walk of shame to work? (aka please can one of you bring me in a change of clothes?)
OK, we take it back. This could be the Whatsapp group you dread the most. Probably set up by the bride, you’ll be inundated with messages, screenshots of dresses you think have been suggested as a joke and dates you must book off work immediately. You’ve typed out ‘Stop messaging me’ 15 times but just can’t bring yourself to press send…
Set up by your fellow bridesmaids to rant and rave about the above-mentioned bride. you love her ,but SRSLY, what has she turned into. amirite?
7 Hen Madness
Started by you or one of the other bridesmaids to plan a night of madness, strippers, shots and penis straws. There’s always one who suggests something civilised like a spa and afternoon tea. No, hun, no.
8 Come Dine With Me
your attempt at being sophisticated and venturing into the world of adult dinner parties. in reality, it’s just your mates taking the piss out of you for not being able to make fajitas.
You love all your mates, but sometimes you need like-minded people to send those awful Tinder screenshots, to rant about how everyoneis coupled up and to send drunken voice notes while your first date horror story is in the bathroom. All girls in this group should apply for next year’s Love Island.
Set up to plan your next big mates’ holiday – where you’ll go, where you’ll stay, the ratio of fit men and whether all-inclusive is a good idea (pros: unlimited alcohol; cons: extra dollar). expect trillions of hotel screenshots, potential bikini options and that one mate who’s mega-organised (read: kind of annoying).
The family group, usually made up of your immediate family members, set up to discuss important issues such as remembering birthdays, when you’re next coming home and gossip about next door’s dog. Also serves as a reminder to be very careful about sending the right messages to the right people…
