“The stereotype is that woman are catty and unfriendly to each other meanwhile we’re making 500 new friends in every bathroom line we stand in”

It's not Galentine's day but I think we should celebrate female friendships more often. It's your girl gang who you turn to when you’re feeling down and you need to be uplifted. When you’re dating someone new and you want the group chats approval or when you’re going through a break up and you need the girls to help you snap back.

Growing up, I struggled to keep female friendships. I was one of those girls with more guy friends than girlfriends. I think it was down to not being a girly girl growing up, I didn’t wear makeup, I wasn’t interested in hair and I didn’t look at guys in that way, I wasn’t your typical 16-year-old girl so I didn’t feel like I had a lot in common with other girls back in school. When I went to college, I started to venture out of my comfort zone, I started experimenting with makeup, playing around with hairstyles, I started to have things in common with other girls. I think this is when I realised the importance of female friendships. I can be open with my own gender, sorry guys but you just don’t understand the emotional side of being a female with female problems. When you’re having your 5th hormonal break down of the week and its only Tuesday, you need your best girlfriend to vent to.

I feel like female friendships are always being torn down on social media but when female friendships are good, they’re good! There is nothing like having a group of your closest girlfriends for a weekly or monthly catch up. I saw a tweet on twitter that said: “43% of being friends with women is us soothing each other after the world has convinced us our expectations were too demanding/unreasonable”. I love the girl power that comes from a group of females who have each other's backs through thick and thin. I love being able to be completely open about my feelings and knowing another female will understand.

Female friendships are comforting, beautiful and amazing.
