|let's talk girl code|
Recently I have been asked to spell out the "girl code" for one of my favorite guy friends, and knew right away it would be post worthy (if right away consists of sitting in front of my computer with some minor writers block).
So Chum, just for you here it is:
#1- If your friend cries over a boy, she has dibs. No ifs, ands, or buts, once tears have been shed it's over. The feelings she has for that boy will result in jealousy if you try to date him. Sisters before misters, that's just the way it is.
#2-If you say you won't tell anyone, your best friend does not count. She knows everything, that's why she's a BFF. That does not mean that she can go gallivanting around sharing things to other people, these things are still top secret, a best friend just makes them easier to handle.
#3- You are not allowed to diss on your friends boyfriend/boy toy, you may politely agree if she is dissing on him, but you yourself do not get to join in. She still likes him and you criticizing him is going to make her even more upset.
#4-You may not diss on your friends mom. Same rules apply, she still loves her mom and you have to listen to her complain, but your criticism is only going to result in her being upset with you.
#5-If your friends boyfriend is cheating on her, you have to tell her, even if she will be mad at you at first. In this instance rule #3 is voided.
#6-Every girl is only permitted one "love of her life" at a time. She can have other boyfriends/crushes, but "the one" has to be limited to one. She has dibs on all texting, hugs, and other cute gestures from this "love of her life".
#7-"Girls Night Out" is for girls only. No boys are to be invited. They can be texted though, we have to keep it interesting.
#8-If your best friend hates someone, you hate them to. You don't have to be rude to them, but you can't be hanging around them all the time either. Your best friends judgement should be important.
#9-If your best friend is doing the wrong thing, tell her! Even if it's going to sting a little. Odds are even if she blows you off, she's going to take into account what you said. Changing is hard, and so is admitting you're wrong, and people don't like to hear they need that, but sometimes it's a must.
#10- Never let a friend leave the house in something that isn't cute. Don't be rude, but don't let her embarrass herself either.
#11- Never buy an article of clothing knowing that another friend owns it. Don't take her fire, if she bought it first then she has dibs, find something else.
#12- Don't knowingly match outfits, it's weird. Plus it allows people to compare who looks better in it which is never a good thing for girls.
I'm sure there are tons of other rules to the complex girl code, but this is a good foundation. There will always be exceptions in certain instances, but for the most part, these rules must be lived by in order to be liked as a girl.
