Female Friendships: Types To Foster And Types To Flee

Female Friendships: Types To Foster And Types To Flee

Female friendships allow you to have a safe space you can always go to whenever you need to vent, cry, or simply talk something out. Your girlfriends will listen, share your feelings, reason with you, and likely leave you with solutions and a much brighter demeanor.

With Friendship Day being in August, I started thinking about my best friends. They are my go-to’s for just about everything- good and bad.  But not everyone in my social circle is super dependable. So how do you foster real friendships and dump the duds? Believe it or not, female friendships fall into categories. Here are the types of women you want in your life:

The Cheerleader:

She stands by you no matter what and builds you up, offering unconditional love, support, and acceptance.

The Guide:

There are two types of friends. They’ll hold your feet to the fire more than the cheerleader and make you accountable for your actions. BUT ALSO, they’ll help you live your truth and find your way. That’s pretty good.

The Comedian:

Finally, we all need someone to make us laugh at life’s craziness, don’t we? You want as many comedians around you as possible.

Ok, those are good pals. But what about women who claim they are friends, but only bring you down? You want to stay away from:

The User:

She only wants to be around you to ‘take’ in the relationship. She doesn’t care about you and only thinks of her own agenda.

The Frenemy:

Pretty close to the user is the frenemy. She’s like the user, but she manipulates with passive-aggressive behavior. I, personally, think she’s the worst.

The Misery Lover:

Run from the misery lover. Some friends take more joy in your troubles than your triumphs. What good is that? In the end, you want authentic friendships. Anything else is a waste of time.
