Woman to Woman

I was raised with four older brothers and my mother was partial to the boys in almost all ways. I always tended to be more comfortable with my brothers friends after about the age of 13. It seemed to be about that time that females became scary, judgemental, competitive and less friendly. I never had a clique of female friends. Just a few here and there and none really lasting years. I didn't really start making many women friends until later in life closer to my 30's. I still find that women do not do enough encouraging and accepting of each other. We have enough to deal with without bashing each other about clothes, weight, jobs, etc. Do you have female friends? What do you do, as a woman, to encourage your female friends?

I have a select few female friends. Growing up though as a kid I had more guy friends. They were and are less drama most of the time.

I agree, that seems to be the case. And they don't hold grudges as long, usually it's over quickly if there is confrontation.

I don't like the fact that some women do nothing but gab about others and talk about you behind your back. If I find some friend of mine doing that then I will distance myself from them real quick.

I have to agree, there are some years in there where young ladies often take their insecurities out on others, my female friends, well any of my friends aren't here, so I encourage as best I can with emails and such

Long distance friends are just as important in many ways.

I encourage my female friends to have fun when they go out for the evening. If I see them before they go out I tell them how nice they look what a nice outfit and I like their shoes. I enjoy seeing my friends having fun. If we are going out I always like to ask them where shall we go and do we need anything else.
