Well, most guys don't want to sit around and listen. I had my girlfriends long before any boyfriend. And in many older women's case... their girlfriends are still around long after their husbands are dead. So for most girls its very important to maintain a good friendship with their girlfriends. Because when the boyfriend pisses you off... the first person you call is your best friend. Most girls thrive off of social interactions and connections. Most men don't want to sit around and listen. And no man should ever be asked "do these jeans make me look fat?" so a girl needs her girlfriends to answer that.
Men are the same way. If something goes wrong, they go to their bros first.
As for fulfilling my duties as a girlfriend... if I wasn't, don't you think he would have replaced me by now?
I'm there for him, I talk to him, I support him, I cook for him, I clean for him, I have sex with him, I hang out with him, I laugh with him, I help him, I'm friends with him, I'm appreciative of him and I thank him for whatever it is he does for me or helps me out with.
I'm not a feminazi though so...
And whose fault is it if guys have low standards and all a girl has to do is sit around, look hot and act a bitch for a guy to show her off proudly?
Because women trust their girlfriends not to break their heart. Men are taught not to show feelings and love so even when dating someone its hard to tell if they do. We are always taught not to waste our breath explaining our feelings to men because, honestly, they don't care. But girls we can share feelings with so we end up closer to them
Girlfriends? What are those?... It has really been that long since I have spent time with girlfriends! I have a full time job and kids to take care of, I'm lucky if I even get 30 min to myself during the day. I'm sorry I don't have time to wait on my husband hand and foot. If he thinks I'm not fulfilling my duties as a wife, he knows where the front door is...
but anyways, your friends are always there for you. like when your crying they comfort you, when you need a few bucks they lend it to you, give you fashion advice, tell you when your hair is messed up, when you have food in your teeth, etc. girls just understand each other better.
guys are like this too. have you never heard the phrase "bros before hoes"?
and I'm sorry, correct me if I'm wrong, but what man in the age group of 18 to 24 is looking to settle down and start a family?
