15 Girl Code Rules Every Girl Needs To Follow
blogspot.com

Female friendships are one of the most valuable relationships that a woman cherishes. Every group of friends has their own set of “rules” that governs the group. All females are expected to follow these unspoken and spoken rules. And while that sounds rigid and annoying, it’s actually a pretty great thing.

We ladies have to have each other’s backs – I mean who else but our own kind truly understands what it’s like to endure period drama or sore feet from sky high stilettos? We’re in this together and if we’re banding together we’re going to need a set of universal laws.

Here’s a quick lesson on Girl Code:

1. Don't even think about going for an ex- boyfriend

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F01%2F636003904580878041-1841961157_rs_500x230-131003121722-tumblr_inline_mgxwu7lOwB1qfn0fl.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=231&h=8a8cc2e7873921be2e230208bfd37f9d3dbd28444d960b0699acdca61e79ec65&size=980x&c=2018617092 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F01%252F636003904580878041-1841961157_rs_500x230-131003121722-tumblr_inline_mgxwu7lOwB1qfn0fl.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D231%26h%3D8a8cc2e7873921be2e230208bfd37f9d3dbd28444d960b0699acdca61e79ec65%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2018617092%22%7D" expand=1]

Let’s start off with the basics: no making out, flirting, batting of the eyelashes with a friend’s ex-boyfriend, fling, or friends with benefits. Why sacrifice a valuable friendship for a guy who won’t last and is clearly playing both of you?

2. Watch out for your friends when they're on a new date

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F01%2F636003910197215790961515959_tumblr_murrjt7bt11rdzuduo9_500.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=591&h=23cbe9db4a73302273266adbc18bb2d4b1473d12c51516ae2d0a93df7bb1c88d&size=980x&c=33607661 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F01%252F636003910197215790961515959_tumblr_murrjt7bt11rdzuduo9_500.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D591%26h%3D23cbe9db4a73302273266adbc18bb2d4b1473d12c51516ae2d0a93df7bb1c88d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D33607661%22%7D" expand=1]

If your friend is going out with someone they’ve never met before, they will text you where they will be and what time they expect to be home. You in turn make sure you hear from them at this time, and if not, you text them to make sure they’re home safely.

3. Let your friend vent when she needs to

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F01%2F6360039128180272471098633140_7.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=360&h=31559b272c76a57de42756ba7abadcb5fbe6d67a8c289665dab5e087498acbf3&size=980x&c=1017223391 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F01%252F6360039128180272471098633140_7.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D360%26h%3D31559b272c76a57de42756ba7abadcb5fbe6d67a8c289665dab5e087498acbf3%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1017223391%22%7D" expand=1]

If your friend begins venting or complaining about something and you want to vent also, you wait until she’s completely done before you even think about changing the subject to you.

4. Give out a tampon to any girl who needs it

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F01%2F63600391618222972527129001_hi-i-need-tampons.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=603&h=ef623541c63e2cb1751a9861c567b43ff7b10b3d8edb457ba1a1a15e6fa56bfe&size=980x&c=426856901 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F01%252F63600391618222972527129001_hi-i-need-tampons.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D603%26h%3Def623541c63e2cb1751a9861c567b43ff7b10b3d8edb457ba1a1a15e6fa56bfe%26size%3D980x%26c%3D426856901%22%7D" expand=1]

If a lady is in need of a tampon, THOU SHALT PROVIDE HER WITH A TAMPON.

5. Let a girl know when she has food in her teeth

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F01%2F636003920341883284-1976318090_tumblr_m9td7dWiQk1qfc8cw.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=23&h=a815abab7acf515252b2810e55830b468db32191b39355d34f6d7f6ebd7063cb&size=980x&c=1362255463 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F01%252F636003920341883284-1976318090_tumblr_m9td7dWiQk1qfc8cw.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D23%26h%3Da815abab7acf515252b2810e55830b468db32191b39355d34f6d7f6ebd7063cb%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1362255463%22%7D" expand=1]

Having food stuck in your teeth and not knowing is terrible nightmare. So help a girl out and warn her before she puts herself into a sticky situation.

6. Don't abandon drunk friends [rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F01%2F636003931154192979-317704583_robin-crying-drinking-himym.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=411&h=f991b8d720edb8849db5245d74069dbcc969ee01ca9d0b368460447afd22db5c&size=980x&c=335347492 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F01%252F636003931154192979-317704583_robin-crying-drinking-himym.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D411%26h%3Df991b8d720edb8849db5245d74069dbcc969ee01ca9d0b368460447afd22db5c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D335347492%22%7D" expand=1]

Always make sure your drunk friends make it home safe.

7. Don't even think about trying to flirt with your friend's boyfriend

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F01%2F636003934548129839-367327987_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=294&h=19cb3655c6acb2d6245a00ae447586efd2ef8b900e61b85f1b700d6495924b23&size=980x&c=2328881107 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F01%252F636003934548129839-367327987_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D294%26h%3D19cb3655c6acb2d6245a00ae447586efd2ef8b900e61b85f1b700d6495924b23%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2328881107%22%7D" expand=1]

Your friend’s boyfriends are just white noise. You don’t assess them in any sexual way whatsoever, they may as well be invisible to you on the attractive stakes.

8. Let a girl know when her BF is trying to cheat

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F01%2F6360039355409118471075154253_amy-6.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=26&h=47df09cedf7b909c8d09f41a65a0073eac9f630cd0e5141803b1176617aae353&size=980x&c=290189093 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F01%252F6360039355409118471075154253_amy-6.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D26%26h%3D47df09cedf7b909c8d09f41a65a0073eac9f630cd0e5141803b1176617aae353%26size%3D980x%26c%3D290189093%22%7D" expand=1]

If someone tries to hit on you and you know they have a girlfriend, you tell the GIRLFRIEND.

9. Boost each other's confidence

If you’re in a bathroom at a bar or a club a there’s other girls around the mirror you have to tell them how awesome they look.

10. Know that siblings are off limits unless you ask

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F01%2F636003938283039889-436185191_all-3.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=243&h=2b94efebf8f276a3d2911e7e4b27e7b8cab1ad02f9a83022eab23fb3ec73ea89&size=980x&c=2454611309 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F01%252F636003938283039889-436185191_all-3.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D243%26h%3D2b94efebf8f276a3d2911e7e4b27e7b8cab1ad02f9a83022eab23fb3ec73ea89%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2454611309%22%7D" expand=1]

Don’t date your friends’ siblings no matter how hot they may be, unless you get permission.

11. Be there for your friend through her relationship problems no matter what

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F01%2F6360039395805978752067188820_wallow-image.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=470&h=7b8e4b30518ec2abdb9ed1abab8b64e220f8e7c745605735e4610a96e9bd6f02&size=980x&c=1277114217 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F01%252F6360039395805978752067188820_wallow-image.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D470%26h%3D7b8e4b30518ec2abdb9ed1abab8b64e220f8e7c745605735e4610a96e9bd6f02%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1277114217%22%7D" expand=1]

If your girlfriend is having serious relationship troubles, you’re on phone duty until things go back to normal. And just a reminder, killing the asshole who broke your friends heart will only hurt her more.

12. Let any girl know when something's wrong with her outfit

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F01%2F6360039413560772231972877794_Nicki-Minaj-wardrobe-malfunction-2014-VMAs-GIF.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=919&h=cab9fe85ef02e190ed57e0932bcc4180c1a58b8abfa6977c410990d5c3c0813e&size=980x&c=2832079800 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F01%252F6360039413560772231972877794_Nicki-Minaj-wardrobe-malfunction-2014-VMAs-GIF.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D919%26h%3Dcab9fe85ef02e190ed57e0932bcc4180c1a58b8abfa6977c410990d5c3c0813e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2832079800%22%7D" expand=1]

Always (discreetly) inform a girl of a wardrobe malfunction.

13. Give hair ties to those in need

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F01%2F636003942603211806-676488075_tumblr_m4q02hw7M61qztwte.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=355&h=a5858bb212014c223a3b5e899098d7b35d14cd43446b9c618200714ef544fe7c&size=980x&c=3493381181 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F01%252F636003942603211806-676488075_tumblr_m4q02hw7M61qztwte.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D355%26h%3Da5858bb212014c223a3b5e899098d7b35d14cd43446b9c618200714ef544fe7c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3493381181%22%7D" expand=1]

If a friend asks for a hair tie you have to give her yours, even if it’s your favorite one.

14. Be there for your friend who just got out of a relationship

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F01%2F636003943774493316-527578671_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=283&h=e15259b6751c623b682a88ac95ca7b040f2f484ecb07d78274f1d3cef92acac1&size=980x&c=1717654074 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F01%252F636003943774493316-527578671_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D283%26h%3De15259b6751c623b682a88ac95ca7b040f2f484ecb07d78274f1d3cef92acac1%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1717654074%22%7D" expand=1]

Even if your friend falls out of contact with you because she’s been dating an asshole who alienates everyone, she’s always welcomed back when she dumps him or needs support to dump him. She will also need a friend to convince her of bad decisions and late night food runs.

15. Be nice to all girls instead of putting them down

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F06%2F01%2F636003947255326804-40482500_meanislamecoolisnicegif.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=207&h=bfc3c74af57ebc8d02ef50cf87bd97ab70356587b0062ab31d735cedf3340b09&size=980x&c=3689004135 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F06%252F01%252F636003947255326804-40482500_meanislamecoolisnicegif.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D207%26h%3Dbfc3c74af57ebc8d02ef50cf87bd97ab70356587b0062ab31d735cedf3340b09%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3689004135%22%7D" expand=1]

How about instead of criticizing and trying to be mean to other women we empower them and say something positive about each other? The world would be a much better place if we were nice to each other instead of always trying to put others down.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

560

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them.
