Unspoken rules of dating

DON’T: Date/Hook-up/Become best friends with the jerk who broke her heart. There are plenty of fish in the sea, why go for someone who has proved to be king of the jerkoffs AND who hurt your friend?

DO: Confront your friend when you have a problem with her. Instead: Find a way to tell her in a respectful way how you feel.

Last year, he was at my dorm when my good friend stopped over for a bit—so naturally I introduced them.

Immediately after they both left my dorm room that night, both of my roommates expressed to me they thought she had feelings for him and I just shook it off.

Fast-forward to about a month ago me and said guy had recently cut ties in a fairly hostile way (he did not know how to think before he spoke, especially about my good friends).

Well, my “good” friend came up to me at a party and told me she needed to talk to me.

How do girls have this intuition of what is acceptable or unacceptable in a friendship, you may ask? Girl code is the unwritten and often unspoken set of rules/ethics that exist between a girl and her best friends.

Simply stated, girl code are the commandments that outline the DO’s and DON’T’s of a good friendship.

Whether it’s a best friend or a girl you just bumped into in the bathroom line at the bar, those are some universal rules that all girls should be aware of.

Surrounding yourself with honest and loyal people is imperative to maintain a happy and healthy friendship.

Every girl who has had a close girl friend or group of close girl friends knows there are some things loyal friends just do not do.

DO: If your friend is depressed or upset over anything, make a day for comforting her. Instead: Grab a tub of her favorite ice-cream or other comfort food, some wine, and a good movie or television series and let loose!

If she’s more of a party animal, take her to her favorite club and let the first shot be on you.
