together

Cooperative and surrounded by friends, together is never alone. Together is an adverb indicating when two or more people or things that are with each other — assembled in a group or united in goals.

Together can also mean “at the same time.” If you sing soprano in a choir, you sing together with the other sopranos in a song. Together is also used to say “set up” or “well-organized.” When someone is emotionally stable, calm, confident, or level-headed, you might describe her as together. And if not, you might hope she “gets it together." Together is a cousin of gather, which might explain why they show up together so often.
