Woman To Woman -  

It’s often said that there is nothing like your best girlfriends.  You confide in each other, you trust one another and you‘re almost like sisters, except you‘re not blood related.  Are women really loyal to their women friends.  Do most women stay true to their friendship without the feelings of jealousy, envy and maybe even some animosity.

I often find that when men bond, there is almost nothing that can separate them.  Not marriage, not wives, not girlfriends, not even another male friend.  Is it true that women tend to build friendships based on the commonalities of their lives.  A newly married woman will tend to form friendships with other married women.  Women with children (single or married) tend to relate better to women with children and I’ve often heard the complaint by women, that once a woman is married she tends to move away from her single friends.  She’s more interested in doing couple related activities.

Is there any truth to that, what kind of woman do you tend to be?

    • I have just about a handful of girlfriends who I would call “lifers.” This is the kind of friendship where if you broke your leg I’d come over and mow your lawn and clean your house. I’d come make you chicken soup if you were sick. If you lived in another state and were in the hospital, I’m on a plane. Some of them are single and some of them are not. I have single friends who come have dinner with me and my husband. Friendship is friendship, marital status aside.

      As women we have such capacity to have absolute strength in numbers. I agree with you, though about envy and lack of loyalty. I don’t know what it is about the female gender but I agree this exists. Maybe the next generation will be different. Maybe we‘re not hardwired to be this way.

    • Chocolatier,

      I really like what you said because the handful of what I could call “girlfriends” that I have are “lifers” too as you stated.  And I think that we have a capacity to love and nurture that only exists in the human female but from what I’ve seen and experienced throughout my life so far, women, even the closest of friends and/or sibling can have issues with jealousy and envy of one another.  Which is too bad because we are the only sex that can literally open up discussions, open up our hearts and cry our eyes out to one another, all without paying one dime to a therapist.

      I really enjoyed reading your comments.
