Which 2000s Sitcom Character Would be Your BFF?

Notice how we're now in the age of many of our favorite sitcom characters? We're working office jobs, living with roommates in apartments in the city...hopefully having less drama in our love lives.

On the topic of sparking new friendships and finding who we gel well with, here's a fun quiz to see which of our fav sitcom characters you'd gel well with. Of course there's little truth to this, but it is fun to think about which types of friends we should look for, and what type of friend we want to be to other people. There's a lot of inspiration we can take from those we binge watch for seven seasons...inspiration on what we should do and what we shouldn't do. Here are some characteristics we can take away positively from a few characters:

  1. Nick Miller ("New Girl"):

    • Authenticity: "I'm not convinced I know how to read, I've just memorized a lot of words." - Nick Miller. Nick's unfiltered honesty and unique perspective make him an authentic and genuine friend.
  2. Cece ("New Girl"):

    • Loyalty: "I'm gonna be there for you. No matter what." - Cece. Cece's commitment to her friends, especially Jess, exemplifies her unwavering loyalty and support.
  3. Dwight Schrute ("The Office"):

    • Loyalty and Dedication: "Would I ever leave this company? Look, I'm all about loyalty. In fact, I feel like part of what I'm being paid for here is my loyalty." - Dwight Schrute. Dwight's loyalty to Dunder Mifflin and his friends (especially his BFF Pam) showcases his unwavering dedication.
  4. Michael Scott ("The Office"):

    • Heart and Positivity: "Would I rather be feared or loved? Easy. Both. I want people to be afraid of how much they love me." - Michael Scott. Michael's desire for connection and love highlights his big heart and positivity.
  5. Phoebe Buffay ("Friends"):

    • Quirkiness and Empathy: "I wish I could, but I don't want to." - Phoebe Buffay. Phoebe's quirky yet endearing personality, combined with her empathy, creates a friend who embraces individuality and understands others in a unique way.
  6. Rachel Green ("Friends"):

    • Growth and Support: "It's like all my life everyone's always leaving, and then I come home and you're always there, just like you always were." - Rachel Green. Rachel's journey from a fashion-forward newcomer to a supportive and independent woman highlights her growth and unwavering support for her friends.
  7. Lily Aldrin ("How I Met Your Mother"):

    • Support and Guidance: "If you're not scared, then you're not taking a chance. And if you're not taking a chance, then what the hell are you doing anyway?" - Lily Aldrin. Lily's wise advice and supportive nature contribute to her role as a guiding force in her friends' lives.
  8. Ted Mosby ("How I Met Your Mother"):

    • Idealism and Loyalty: "And that kids is how I met your mother." - Ted Mosby. Ted's unwavering loyalty and romantic idealism are epitomized in his quest for true love and commitment to sharing his life story with his children.

There are certainly many less than ideal traits we can take away, but we'll stick with the positives for now. Likewise, if you get Barney Stinson and your ideal BFF, that doesn't mean you should make a playbook...
