A1 that article says "We’re the lucky girls who understand that our girlfriends are the most valuable weapon we’ll ever have in life, which is why we’re in sororities." ..... 🙄 come on. Sororities are stupid anyway. Girlfriends are not "weapons" and she's probably just a normal woman who doesn't see other people as toys/tools/accessories

I usually get along better with girls than guys too, and actually this thread is a great example why. No guy would post on here being all "omg my coworker said he gets along more with girls than guys" - most guys don't worry about comments like that. Girls care way too much about every little thing and feel the need to analyze everything to death, often with their "gal pals." You are demonstrating the exact reason why I find a lot of girls annoying af.

That usually means she doesn't put up with drama and has zero interest in talking makeup, designer bags, clothes, etc. aka she's a normal working professional. Don't let it phase you, she probably has a little chip on her shoulder, but she'll be fine if you act cool. You got this!

I love her initiative and willingness to go above and beyond but I wish she would just focus on her work stream and leave me TF alone when it’s after 7pm if it’s not urgent.
