The Good Listener

This is who you call to hash out a problem. She’ll stay on the phone with you for hours, exploring every angle of a situation (what exactly did he mean when he said that), offering reassurances and just listening when you need to vent.

“This type of friend is like a safety net,” says Hylen. “She will catch all of the frustrations or worries that you need to vent about without letting it cause any damage to your other relationships.” Just be mindful to give her a chance to talk, or she might end up feeling like you’re getting free therapy!
