The Internet has more to offer than just bullies and trolls—there are actually a ton of good-hearted "friends" who have advice, tips, jokes, and insight into their quirky lives. Don't believe us? Check out a few of our favorite YouTubers below, and decide for yourself.
Need a crafty friend?
Mr. Kate is a bright and shiny California girl with tons of tips for living your most creative life. She'll give you DIY style tips and home decor advice as well. Plus, she'll make you laugh sometimes too. Her website is updated quite often too, so we never compare her to that fair-weather friend who promises to catch up on all of The Mindy Project with us, but then watches it secretly in the computer lab... we digress...
Need a quirky friend?
Check out Coffey Chat with Shannon Coffey! Over some coffee, she talks about reality television, pop culture, celeb crushes and more. It's almost as good as your monthly diner talk with your real-life bestie.
Need a silly friend who does great impressions?
Melissa Villasenor has some pretty uncanny interpretations of our favorite celebrities. She also uploads vids with tips on hecklers, her stand-up performances, and song covers too.
Need some musical friends?
If you're a Broadway baby, you can get your weekly fix by watching an original musical by the AVByte Brothers. From hipster mermaids to first-world problems, this group of New York musical aficionados nails it every time. What could be nicer than that?
Need a smart friend?
Is there anything Amy Poehler can't do? We think probably not, which is why we like to consult Ask Amy, Poehler's advice column of sorts. Whether you have social anxiety or pushy parents, the awesome Golden Globes host and Parks and Recreation star will gently lead you in the right direction. After all, she's not like a regular mom, she's a cool mom!
Need a helpful friend?
Life coaches can be expensive, y'all! But lucky for you, YouTuber Michelle Akin is her to help motivate, relate, and celebrate you and your life.
