Ok…I admit it. I’m a girl that doesn’t understand girls.
That being said, let me explain further.
All of the best friends I’ve ever had have been girls and I absolutely LOVE/NEED my girl time. You just can’t beat drinking some wine with your best girl friends and telling ridiculous stories about your life/fam/boyfriends.
BUT it seems 90% of the time when someone annoys me, it’s a girl
Girls can be insanely territorial, especially when it comes to ‘their’ group of guys. This is something that I WILL never be able to wrap my head around. I LOVE meeting new people. I don’t care what gender/ethnicity/religion/sexuality you are. I’ve pretty much always been this way. My friends are always cracking up about it because numbers I’ll get at the end of the evening will be for cool chick-a-dees I’ve met (in a non-sexual way) then for a bunch of dudes (pre-bf of course). Other girls aren’t necessarily always this way. They see other girls as a ‘threat’ and act in the BITCHIEST way possible to establish their ‘stomping grounds.’ It’s pretty much the equivalent of a dog pissing on a tree and that’s how I see those girls when they act that way. You don’t know me, so why be bitchy to me right off the bat because I am around your guy friends? EESH!
Perfect example of this: One of my brothers is a year and a half older than me but due to his late bday he was only in the grade above me in school. When we got to High School I became a ‘little sister’ to his entire VERY tight-knit group of guy friends. They picked on me and took care of me like I was family.
A year after they had graduated and I was living down in San Diego, 5 or so of the boys moved into a house together and the rest were over there pretty much 24/7. They met new girls in their classes, bars, etc that didn’t go to our high school and didn’t know about me. When I would come home and visit I would walk in the door to yells of “MEGANNN!” and get engulfed in hugs (have I mentioned how much I freaking love these boys?!). The girls of the week that were over would STARE. ME. DOWN. Looks of “who is this bitch” were written ALL over their faces, especially when I showed up for a quick visit without my friends. Because I knew these little girlies would not last I found the entire thing funny.
They would do such childish stuff as leave a room I walked into and purposefully ignore me whenever I spoke. That is until one of them called me “Little Corbett” and then the girls would do a complete 180. I’d get “Oh. My. God!” (yes I grew up and currently reside in ‘the valley’ so that was said with the classic ‘valley girl’ accent) “You’re Danny’s sister?!” They would then kiss my ass and ask m all sorts of questions.
Basically, the second I was no longer a ‘threat’ it was ok to treat me like a normal human being. I don’t understand this logic. How is acting like a mega-bitch a turn on to a dude? Like honestly though?! And regardless of that fact you could be being a bitch to a potential awesome friend. This leads me into the #2 reason why I don’t understand girls
Some girls let their insecurities turn them into crazed psychopaths. Don’t get me wrong, I have my share of insecurities just like everyone but I don’t let that dictate whom I treat with respect. It is turn that most of the time when a girl doesn’t like another girl they don’t know that well it is because they are jealous in some way. They will stop at NOTHING to rip this girl to shreds in order to make themselves feel better. If a girl is smarter, wealthier, prettier, more popular or successful they MUST BE DESTROYED!
Ok, maybe not that dramatic but you get the picture. I hate standing around listening to women put each other down with words like “whore” and “slut” when that said person did absolutely nothing to them.
Jealousy is an UGLY UGLY thing my friend and let’s face it women have it hard enough in this world with all the double standards and glass ceilings that we don’t really need to be adding to that (ok, off my feminist soap box. Boys, continue reading). I’ve acting in this manner before and when I think back on it, it disgusts me. Whenever I feel the green monster coming out and I turn it into “That girl would be rad to be friends with” or “I have such kickass friends.” Be PROUD of the people you surround yourself with. Trust me, life is way more fun that way than surrounded by a bunch of ugly, stupid, lazy lemmings.
3) The “Guy’s Girl”
An automatic red flag when I meet another girl is if they say to me within the first 1/2 hour that they “get along better with guys.” Not that that isn’t true for a lot of women (myself included sometimes) BUT the ones that are the most vocal about this are usually the ones that don’t necessarly get along better with guys but don’t know HOW to get along with other women.
These are the man-hungry, back-stabbing, stop at nothing to get their way girls. They don’t know how to see women as friends but rather obstacles in their way. I’ve been known to feel pity for the girlfriend-less girls and befriend them only to get massively backstabbed in the end.
Not worth it my friends, STAY AWAY!
Basically what I’m TRYING to say is. Ladies, let’s just all be friends. All that hate and anger being gone will just feel oh-so-much better!

There is soooo much more to write but I will save that for a part 2 someday.
