If you're stuck in the middle of older and younger siblings then good news! Because new research has found that you may just be the best kind of friend to have.
Studies suggest that because they rely less on attention than first-born or last-born siblings, middle-borns are more reliable and make better friends because of it.
Because of their position in the family, the middle child spends more time with their siblings than their parents and are usually the ones that their siblings turn to in times of need.
Middle-borns were found to put a lot of value in their relationships with other people and were more likely to have a close tight-knit group of friends.
The middle child is also much less likely to cheat on a significant other than an eldest or youngest born.
