Being International Women's Day (YAS GIRLS!), I got inspired and felt it would be appropriate to write my first real blog post about a topic I know a lot of girls, women, and myself can relate to.
I Don't Get Along with Girls
"I don't get along with girls."
"Most of my friends are guys." "Girls are too judgey." "I get along with guys better." Oh my gosh, I get it. I see you. I feel you. I have always been the girl with a bunch of guy friends. Guys are so fun and I never understood girls. Some days I still really don't. Hell may freeze over if I'm actually ever a bridesmaid (but please don't rule me out I'm super supportive and love weddings :D). Yes, I have about five girls who I would call my core group of (amazing) girlfriends. Some I've known most of my life, a couple are new. But even so, I know people with up to or even more than a dozen girlfriends. That will never be me.
I realized early on that having a ton of girlfriends just wasn't in the cards for me. I don't make friends easily, and I'm not into traditional "female" roles. I feel more comfortable in hiking boots than a dress. I want to spend my money running races instead of getting my nails done. I fully recognize that if I go out dancing it's going to consist of me whippin' out the finger guns and going full Elaine Benes. If you ever catch me wearing heels I actually morph into a baby deer learning how to walk. And I am just not the type of girl with a ton of girlfriends. You're still reading this. Okay, you get it, you're with me, you're on board. Let's keep going.
