So we…Women just bond – we don’t seem to need all those props and trappings, pop and ceremony, sports and secrecy and silly games and funny handshakes. All women need for bonding is couple of chairs and a pot of tea – maybe not even that. But… Whether you’re married, single, or sworn off men forever, to be part of this sisterhood and blessed with friends, The Laws of Girl Code is a capacious, complicated, and compulsory tome for all women. Girl Code has existed for generations, protecting and preserving friendships from our estrogen-infused tendency towards cattiness. Abide by Girl Code and you are sure to live a long, happy, drama-free life (at least when it comes to avoiding cat fights).
I couldn’t help but wonder where this Girl Code comes from, is it made in every girl’s blood or is it something we learn for surviving? Are the girl code really for women, would we need it if there were no men? Do men has pushed us to make the girl code or does just every girl is filled with bitchiness and has that insatiable need to complicate everything in life? Whatever…Any rulebreak is punishable by bitching from fellow females.
The Single Girl Code is the most complex and voluminous of all the Girl Code sections simply because of the nature of the beast. When you are unattached, you are essentially in competition with all other single women, including your friends.
Although Rule no 1 and the MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL: Never, ever, under any circumstances date your friend’s; exs, past crushes, guys who have humiliated/used her and guys she currently fancies… Do this at your own risk biatch!! Even This IS the most important it is still very common not to observe. But if You break it forget about your girlfriend forever and prepare for the BIG catfight.
Why do we ever need the men another girl has condemned? Is one woman’s disaster another’s luck? Can my tears really be happiness for someone else?
Rule no 2 : It is perfectly acceptable to take an automatic dislike to a girl/ judge them without ever speaking to them. And that’s what WE, women, do all the time.. Not the right clothes, hair, body or attitude (if it ever gets so far)? Oh…Sweety, don’t even look at us! Men has always considered to be competitive, but take a better look at women…They have made Lipstick Jungle out there and You- Men are lucky to live outside that area although close enough to sometimes get involved.
Rule no 3: Never come down to Boyfriend illness. It’s contagious, can quarantine you from all human contact, and is grounds for public uproar, geared towards you. Always make time for your friends and lead a balanced life.Whether you plan a poker night every week, or make a vow to have Gossip Girl dates every Monday, keep a ritual with your friends and do your best to always honor it. Yes, we are very good at rituals and for goodness sake if you do not attend one, there will definitely be gossips behind your back…and an intervention immediately. Do not choose a man over your best friend! . If you change boyfriends so fast they rarely achieve name status, a man must be around for at least six weeks before you make your friends bother to learn his first name. Until such time, he should be referred to as “The boy” or “That guy”. That’s how we do It before a man has earned our respect : If we just met a guy and know absolutley nothing about him, but need to refer to him during ‘girl talk’ we use one example of who he is, something he has, or what he does, and he becomes… that guy. Boys keep in mind: if you date a girl, you date her best friends too, that’s how it is and it will never ever change just for you..
Rule no 4: You are to never diss a friends boyfriend except to agree lightly or nod when she says he’s being an asshole. (In most cases it is easier to nod.) Exception: If a guy cheated or dumped your friend it is exceptional for you to claim he isn’t good enough, and that she deserves better as well as reminding her that he was an asshole anyway.
If you’ve gone through a breakup, chances are you had your army of girlfriends, however big or small, rally around you to pull you out of the abysmal trenches of post-breakup depression. They helped you put the pieces back together, realize that your life doesn’t suck without him, and that, actually, you’re probably better off without him. Chocolate is an accepted food in any occasion… But just don’t forget …
Rule no 5: Always remember who was there to pull you up by the bootstraps and be sure to repay the favor when they’re down in the dumps. If a friend had a horrendous day at work, bring over a bottle of wine and your Sex & The City DVDs to cheer her up. The little things go a long way.
