The People You're Most Likely To See At Your High School Reunion

'Tis the season for nostalgia, so get ready for some high school doozies!

The holiday season is prime time for high school reunions. Whether it's your 5-, 15- or 40-year, or whether being back in your hometown is a reunion in itself, there are at least a few types of people we all inevitably bump into. 

Here we give you our master list of the 10:

1.) The Recent Divorcee

Favorite accessory: Tall glass of red wine

Wardrobe choice: Cleavage for days

Signature phrase: "Let's do a Jagerbomb!"


2.) The Stoner-Turned-CEO

Why he's hard to recognize: He's no longer wearing a hoodie.

What to expect: When you talk about memories from high school involving him, he has no idea what you're talking about.

Wardrobe choice: A nice suit ... that still smells like incense


3.) The Ugly Duckling Who Blossomed

Main talking points: How attractive their boyfriend/girlfriend is

Reported occupation: "Some modeling here and there"

Annoying habit: Insists on approving every photo taken of her


4.) The Recently Out-of-the-Closet-er

Favorite passtime: Going around and asking everyone "if they knew"

Calling card: An appletini

What he came for: To individually break the news to each girl he's ever dated


5.) The Jock Who Put On Some Weight

Talking points: That touchdown from the regional semifinal game

Wardrobe choice: Letterman jacket (which no longer fits)

Signature excuse: "My new workout routine requires me to put on a ton of mass before I get started."


6.) The Genuinely Awesome Person from High School You Make Plans to See Again ... but, Let's Be Honest, You Won't See Again

Typical characteristics: You love her, OMG, you forgot how much you love her! But you can't remember her last name.

Biggest reason you won't see her again: You live 600 miles away from each other.


 7.) The Party Girl-Turned-Soccer Mom

Warning sign: Refers to her mini-van as a "party wagon"

Further evidence: Continually asks classmates to take body shots

Dead giveaway: Twerks to every song


8.) The Prom King Who Lives in His Parents' Garage

Red Flag #1: Refers to his parents as his "roommates"

Red Flag #2: Brings his own alcohol in a paper bag

Quote he still lives by: "Books are for nerds."


9.) The "They Ended Up Together!?" Marriage

Strong indicator: They have no idea what table to sit at

Dead giveaway: They pose for both the chess club and cheerleader reunion photos

How to spot them: At any point in the evening, ten of your classmates are staring at them whispering, "Him? And her?"


10.) The Person Who Moved to A Big City ... And Wants Everyone to Know

Talking point #1: The lack of public transport in your home town

Talking point #2: The lack of hispanic food trucks open after 2:00 am around your high school

Signature Quote: "OMG, drinks are so much cheaper around here."
