What Female Friends Say About You
So I have this friend who doesn't have that many other female friends. Actually, I have more than one female friend for whom I'm possibly the only female friend. Now, I never thought much of that because we're all scientists, these are people I met in grad school, which was the one time in my life when I had more than a handful of close female friends. But a guy she went out with recently made some comment about her lack of female friends is a 'bad sign'. I'm not sure of what. Lack of free time? Lack of interest in knitting?
Then today I was watching Judging Amy (yes, I am still trying to Relax), and noticed that none of the female characters on the show have friends other than family members.
Is this part of the Bitch mythology? That professional women don't have time for friends? Or that we can't relate to each other-?
My thought for the day is to go give your girlfriend a hug. Commiserate. Find something not-too-girly to do together.
