7 Surefire Signs You're The Betty Cooper Of Your Friend Group

by Tessa Harvey

If you're not already on the Riverdale bandwagon, I've got a quick question for you: What are you doing?! Riverdale was the show of the summer. But no worries, if you haven't caught up, you still have time. The second season is set to premiere October 11, so there's plenty of opportunity to bring on the hype. The show follows the lives of a group of teenagers in a small town and the mysterious circumstances of a murder. Starring KJ Apa as Archie, Cole Sprouse as Jughead, Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, and Camila Mendes as Veronica Lodge, among other notable actors, the show is a ginormous hit. Every character is undeniably a little relatable, but if you're like me, there are some telltale signs you're the Betty Cooper of your friend group.

Need a refresher on our main girl Betty Cooper? No problem. Betty is the show's resident good girl. She's lovable, smart, and know for being nice to literally everyone. She's the BFF of Veronica Lodge, who's her polar opposite in innumerable ways; she's the mean girl who's gone (kind of) good. Betty starts the show off in love with her actual BFF, Archie, the town's lovable redhead (don't even get me started on the other redheads in the show).

The best part about these characters is that they're kind of relatable in a completely unrecognizable world. They may be a tad dramatic at times and shrouded in mystery, but their qualities can definitely make you go, "that is literally me." Anyone else? Because same. Not sure if you're a Betty or a Veronica? If you can relate with these seven signs, chances are pretty high that you're Betty Cooper all the way.

1. You're No Stranger To Unrequited Love


One too many times you've found yourself crushing hard, only to find out that he doesn't feel the same way about you. It hurts like a total betch. But, you learn how to pick yourself back up and move on, even if it takes a bit of time.

2. You're Friends With Legit Everyone, But Only Have A Few Best Friends

You pretty much get along with everyone. You're no stranger to anyone you know, and you love meeting new people. However, you only truly open up to handful of people who you trust with your whole heart.

3. You Take Things A Little Too Seriously Sometimes


From getting the grade to getting the guy, sometimes, you just have a hard time letting go. It's easy for you to get caught up in making sure everything goes according to plan, and you like to have an answer for everything. Taking it easy is not in your vocabulary.

4. Your Ponytail Is Your Go-To Hairstyle

Studying after school? Ponytail. Got a cute date? Ponytail. Heading to the gym? Ponytail, obviously. I mean, it's easy, it's cute, and it gets the job done like a boss. What else do you want from me?

5. You Pride Yourself On Your Book Smarts

Basically, you're pretty intelligent. You're not one to brag, necessarily, but you know you're smart. You use it to your advantage when you can.

6. You Put A Lot Of Pressure On Yourself

All of your qualities, as awesome as they are, can make it so that you often put pressure on yourself to make sure the end result is perfect. It's easy to start to feel out of control when that happens. My suggestion? Take it easy, because no one's perfect.

7. You're A Loyal And Caring Friend Until The End


If there's one thing incredible thing about Betty, it's that she doesn't easily give up on people. If she chose someone as her friend, she's going to stay there with them no matter what. If you're loyal to a fault, chances are, you're Betty.
