Friends are important. They’re there for you, no matter what. They’re there to make you laugh. They’re there to let you cry. They’re there for <a href="http://collegecandy.com/2010/10/18/the-8-traits-of-a-great-wingwoman/">nights out</a> and nights in and cram sessions and outfit emergencies. They let you rant about boys and books and bars and beer.
This week, as I caught up on my favorite fall shows (and watched some Sex and the City reruns) I couldn’t help but notice a running trend: female friendships. Sure some shows were about shopping (or singing while shopping) and some were about saving lives, but at the heart of it all, were some pretty cool chicks.
• And you thought Justin Bieber fans were scary.... • Old men are sexier than ever. • And this is why we love dating in the Fall. • BFF is officially a word. Just look it up! • This fall, it's all about the shearling. • How to keep from moving too fast in a relationship.
t’s August, which means it’s almost that time of year: back to school. But unlike when we were younger and dreaded the first day, going back to college is exciting, enough to provoke countdowns on Facebook statuses (“Only 236 hours more days until I’m back at school!”), and overall giddiness. However, amidst all that excitement, there’s one gray cloud looming: you’ll be leaving your best friends from home behind.
We’ve all done it, slipped a little white lie in when talking to a friend. Your hair looks fine. Of course he’ll call you back. You are absolutely right. It’s not like you meant to be dishonest, but the words tumbled out of your mouth before you even had the chance to think about them. You’re not lying; you’re sparing her feelings.
There are some unwritten rules of friendship we all know: Thou shalt hold her hair back when she is praying to the porcelain god after a long Friday night. Thou shalt never date her ex-boyfriend, brother or best male friend. Thou shalt never have to watch Say Yes to the Dress alone. Thou shalt risk your life to satisfy the drunken cravings of your BFF.
A recent survey of 3,000 women revealed that one in five women secretly think her best friend is fat but won't dare share this information with her. The study also suggested that the truth was a big "no no" because 1 in 5 women ended the relationship post dishing the info.
Ah, the new relationship. A time to learn everything about one another, to cuddle (a lot), to hold hands whenever you can, to have lots and lots of sex… And, apparently, to ditch your friends.
I’m a senior in college, single, loving it, and have just as many girlfriends as random sexual escapades (almost). So maybe I’m not having as much consistent sex as I’d like, but I am still getting my fill of lovin. I am absolutely in love with my girlfriends.
A girl's gotta have her friends, right? We need someone there to cheer us up when yet another guy has stomped on our heart, when we need someone's honest opinion on how our ass looks in those jeans, and when our hair is too short for a ponytail and someone needs to keep it out of our face when we're puking.
They say college is where you meet your bridesmaids. I don't know who the hell "they" are, but it seems true enough. After four years of late night pizza runs, Friday night pre-gaming and makeup sessions, and spooning in tiny twin beds, you are bound to make those tight knit friendships.
Okay, so here’s the problem: Alex isn’t just some guy. Alex is the guy with whom your friend is cheating (well this is the second time) on her boyfriend. Bigger problem: you happen to be really good friends with boyfriend boy. Oy.
Most people know how much it sucks to break up with a boyfriend. Whether he treated you horribly or the relationship has just run its course, telling your boyfriend adios is not easy. And is usually followed by tears, vodka, long trips to the gym, or some combination of all three.
