When you’re hanging out with your friends or inside your room, you can always count on your girlfriends to give you a dose of girl talk. Whether you’re having a conversation about crushes, guys, or just life in general, spending time with your best pals is the best remedy for any ailment.
Admit it — when it comes to being single and surrounded by so many other single people, things can get pretty lonely. So to help combat that, here are 10 Things Girls Wish You Knew About Them
1. We all have our problems.
No one has it all figured out at 23 years old, and that’s okay. No matter what situation you find yourself in, you’re still you, and that’s what’s important. Whether you’re dealing with the break-up of a relationship or the stress of school finals, everyone goes through their issues.
If you’re worried that talking about your problems might make someone else feel uncomfortable, just remember that you’re not alone. No matter what you do or who you’re with, you’ll always have your best friend in the world.
2. There’s no such thing as “just friends” with a girl.
This may seem like a no-brainer, but girls are constantly surprised about it. Being there for each other and being able to talk to each other is so important, and it doesn’t matter if you’re just a “friend” or in a romantic relationship.
No matter who you are or how you feel, you can talk to your bestie about how you feel and what’s going on in your life. Just make sure you’re there for each other, and if you find that you want to be more than just “friends,” then be open about it. No one wants to be with someone who doesn’t know how they feel or if they just want to be close friends.
3. Being single doesn’t make you less of a woman.
As a woman, you’re constantly pushed to have a perfect boyfriend, a “perfect” body, and a “perfect” life. It’s difficult to just be you and be happy with what you have.
Being single doesn’t mean that you’re not attractive or that you have a “less-than” life. Being single doesn’t mean that you don’t have feelings or that you don’t want to be loved. Being single can be an amazing experience and nothing to be ashamed of.
4. We appreciate the small things you do for us that mean so much.
Depending on who you are and who you’re with, you might notice some of the little things your friends do for you. Whether it’s a quick text to let you know that they’re thinking about you, a way to make you feel good when you don’t feel good, or just a kind word or joke, they mean the world to you.
Girls are constantly talking to each other, so it’s easy to forget how much you appreciate small things like these. Take the time to notice how much that small thing means to you and appreciate it even more.
5. We know you care when we’re sad or upset and want to talk about it.
Girls are constantly trying to impress each other and are always competing to see who can have the biggest or best life. They’ve been taught to strive for nothing but the best, which can make it hard to know when someone is just being nice to you or when they genuinely care.
Not every girl wants to talk about how they’re feeling, but if you notice that someone is sad or upset, it might be nice to ask how they’s doing. No matter what you do, don’t ever assume that someone doesn’t want to talk about how they’re feeling.
6. It’s okay to be picky about who you date.
You don’t have to date anyone you don’t want to. If someone is just not the one for you, it’s okay to politely end the relationship. You should never have to feel pressured to be in a relationship or to be someone you’re not. Not every guy is worth it, and not every girl is worth dating. If you’re not feeling it, don’t do it.
You should never feel bad about dating someone who isn’t your “type” or who isn’t where they “should be”. You should feel bad about putting pressure on someone to be something they aren’t. Not every guy or girl is worth it; not every person deserves to be in a relationship or to be someone they aren’t.
7. Looking for love is a crazy journey and it’s not for everyone… for now at least.
No one wants to be in a relationship, but everyone deserves to find love. Whether it’s taking your time and dating the people who make you happy or just being open to meeting new people and being in an open relationship, there are many ways to find your perfect match. No matter what you do, don’t let anyone tell you that you have to be in a relationship. Many people are happy being single and aren’t in a relationship.
8. Don’t forget that the next time you’re feeling down, someone you know has it worse.
We all have bad moments and times when we feel like things aren’t going the way they should. But remember that every single person you know has a better life than you think they do. They have better friends, better jobs, better houses, and better everything. So remember that, and don’t let your bad day ruin someone else’s good day.
9. The next time you think about talking down to us, just remember: we have feelings too.
Girls talk about so many things that are so much worse than what you say to us. Remember that if you have a bad day and you don’t feel like talking to anyone, you can always text your bestie. You don’t have to be super happy or in a great mood to talk to someone, and you don’t have to feel like you have to be at your best to text someone either. So remember that, and don’t let your bad day ruin someone else’s good day.
10. The next time you need to be alone, don’t forget to remind yourself that you’re better off alone.
This one is a double-edged sword. If you’re feeling lonely and want to be by yourself, don’t forget that you’re better off by yourself. And if you’re by yourself and want to be lonely, remember that you’re better off by yourself. No one should ever feel like they have to be in a certain way to be happy, and no one should ever feel like they have to be alone. If
