As I age ever so gracefully new things seem to pop up grabbing my attention. My first grey hairs being one of them (I know I'm 25 and I have like 3 grey's WTM?!). I am slowly starting to become more in tune with my body and mind. I feel I am gaining important wisdom about being a woman that I would even pass on to younger generations. Something that has been popping up more frequently is the fact that I am lacking girlfriends (ya know? friends that are girls...duh!). When I was younger I didn't have a slew of these. I actually hung out with mostly guys. As a result I feel I missed out on a lot of crucial "girl" stuff. I swear it seems I get seriously down in the dumps because I am lacking that female connection you get from having a best girly girl friend. I have had a few that I was semi close to in the past. This I feel also stems off of me being an only child. I really have always wanted an older sister to show me "the ways" of girldom. You'd think having a hairdresser mom and grandma they'd sort of pick up the slack.
So that being said how do you make girlfriends? There's no OkCupid for friends. Are you supposed to walk up to someone and say, "hey your cool lookin. Wanna hang?" Thats just creepy. Even Shane says to me "maybe you'll meet someone at school?" Yeah, most the people around me are 18 or something. Thats also kinda creepy (no offense youngens). I honestly don't know. What I do know is I am dying to have a girlfriend to get girly with. I miss having a girls lunch. Spending a little extra time in front of the mirror playing with make up (I mean I was a make up artist for 5 years and I hardly ever touch the stuff anymore). I am grateful that I have Shane's sister Stevie from time to time. Its actually really neat. We go about once a month and get a pedicure (in this case mani pedi's. It was HEAVEN!). What are your experiences? How have you met your friends? Basically I am hoping and praying I am not the only girl who has experienced a girlfriend drought. I don't care if your 16 or 25 a girl still needs to be silly and have a slumber party (no boys allowed of course) complete with green face masks, nail polish, and sappy movies!
