A buddy you bumped into and got close with

On TikTok, a ‘Green Person’ refers to someone you stumbled upon by accident but now has become an indispensable part of your life. It’s common to see TikTokers referencing “their green person” in response to queries such as “Who is your green?” or “Who’s your green person?” This is all a part of TikTok’s color person trend.

The color person trend is a viral TikTok trend where users recognize and appreciate the important figures in their lives. Each person is associated with a color depending on their role or impact on the user’s life, for instance, you might have a green, blue, or pink person. This trend took off in the summer of 2023, leading to a wave of “Who’s your (color)?” videos.
