Toni, Lynn, Mya and Joan embodied the true definition of girlfriends. Do you and your best friends? Here are a few signs that you may be slipping on your job as friend.
8. YOU STAND BY AND ALLOW HER TO BE “THAT DRUNK CHICK”
We all have nights that we’d like to forget or, in some cases, we’d like to remember. You’re not meant to be a babysitter all because your girlfriend can’t hold her liquor. At least intervene once she hits her limit. This will prevent a public intoxication charge that’s waiting to happen.
7. HER TAGGED PHOTOS ARE HIDEOUS
Be honest. You saw the foreign visitor in her nose and knew that she had spinach in her teeth BEFORE uploading that picture for all to see. If you know you look flawless in a photo but she doesn’t, be courteous and crop your friend out. Once it strikes the Internet, there’s no turning back even if you click “delete”.
6. HER MAKEUP JOB GIVES YOU SECOND-HAND EMBARRASSMENT
Caking on makeup is a major offense. If in the back of your head you find yourself saying, “she looks a hot mess,” then most likely everyone else is too. Suggest some of your own beauty tips. Always remember, your friends are a reflection of you.
5. YOU’RE BOTH IN DENIAL ABOUT HER RELATIONSHIP ANTICS
“Girl you’re not crazy, he is.” Lies you tell. There is nothing sane about following a man home or texting him “I miss you” after the first date. If your girlfriend gets dumped frequently and is known around town as that “crazy chick,” don’t stroke her ego by saying that the guys are in the wrong. She may not notice that she’s coming on strong or chances are she’s a fatal attraction waiting to happen. You decide.
4. EVEN DR. MIRACLE WANTS TO CALL A WITCH DOCTOR ON HER BAD WEAVE
Sometimes the struggle can be so real on a bad hair day, but some women are repeat offenders. Be her second mirror. She may think she looks like Beyonce while the rest of us see Dragon Fly Jones. Don’t let your girl go out like that.
3. YOU NOTICE HER WEIGHT GAIN BUT SHE DOESN’T
Don’t let your friend walk around in clothing that clearly shows she stuffed herself into them. Politely suggest that she come workout with you or share that you’re concerned about her unhealthy habits. And stop inviting her to Chipotle everyday for lunch.
2. SHE PICKS PUBLIC FIGHTS
Leave the fighting to the ratchets. Don’t let reality TV earn her a check that her behind can’t cash. Picking a fight isn’t cute. Tell your girl to chill out!
1. YOU’RE THE #1 SOURCE FOR GOSSIP WHEN IT COMES TO HER BUSINESS
Don’t tell your girl’s private business. She came to you in confidence, and that’s where it should stay. Jim, James, Paul and Tyrone don’t need to know what she does on the side. The best kept secrets stay between friends.
