Girl Code

Not for any particular reason, I've been thinking about the "girl code."
You know, those unspoken rules that dictate if you can or can not date a
guy who one of your friends dated.

So after some intense research, I found a few funny rules that all girlfriend groups are supposed to follow...
Some of them I totally agree with while others..I'm still deciding...

1) A man must be around for at least six weeks before you make your friends bother to learn his first name. Until such time, he should be referred to as "The boy" or "That guy".

2) All girls must have a "Mr.Right Now". This is the guy friend who is always ready and available to hang out with you, and may or may not like you as more than a friend. He is always ready to party till dawn, and do things you wish you didn't remember in the morning. He's not “Mr. Right,” but he may be good enough to be “Mr. Right Now.”

3) Every girl must wait at least a day and a half before calling a guy whose number she has retrieved.

4) You are never in any case to date a friends ex or a guy who she was really into.
Exception: If he's one of those guys who every girl likes.

5) You are to never diss a friends boyfriend except to agree lightly or nod when she says he's being a asshole. In most cases it is easier to nod.
Exception: If a guy cheated or dumped your friend it is exceptional for you to claim he isn't good enough, and that she deserves better as well as reminding her that he was an asshole anyway.

What do you think? Worth following?

I just went through this.

Rule #4 should always be followed. Period.

And Rule #5 is good too.

This post made me especially happy. Especially today when I am especially feeling ticked off. (And no, not due to PMS).

Domineau sent this to me. I wholeheartedly agree with #4. I also think #5 is a good one to remember (just in case the asshole and the friend decide to get back together...you don't want to be the awkward friend who said mean things...)

Also, cute blog.

ok...probably going to get some grief here, but as for #4 i say it takes two to tango...so if it didn't work out with those two, but there is a possibility it will with you two then...go for it. i also think calling dibbs is lame as well...unless there is clear mutual interest.
