She’s not going to try and conceal anything. If something’s going on, she’s going to talk to you about it. You won’t have to play any guessing games with her. She’ll always be upfront and honest.
When you come to parties with us, it basically means you’re about to meet fifty other people who are just as loud, crazy, and strange as we are.
We’re fiercely loyal and always have your back. We are the first to stand up for somebody and will go down swinging to defend our parents or really anyone else who we care about.

They assume we are commitment-phobic, emotionally troubled, too picky for our own good, easily bored. Or even worse, we are told we should settle down as soon as possible because once our beauty fades and our biological clock ticks, no man will even want us, as if beauty and giving birth is all what it is about women.
Reach out to them unexpectedly. Remind them they don’t have to do this alone.
