5 Women You Don’t Want To Befriend

Notwithstanding yesterday’s post, female friendship is a beautiful thing. Something special happens when women get together and it can be so intoxicating that sometimes we just want to add every woman we come across to our inner circle.
Unfortunately not every woman is eligible for friendship status and I’ve learned the hard way that friendship between two women with conflicting agendas can be a recipe for disaster. Like I mentioned yesterday, women can be catty and sometimes the urge to use inside information against a friend is stronger than the friendship itself. So though no one wants to be the kind of woman who can’t get along with her own kind, there are some women in life that a smart woman should run away from.
1. The suspected side piece
A few months ago a reader told me a crazy story about some chick she barely knew who suddenly got all hot and sweaty to be friends with her. Apparently the chick got the idea in her head that this woman had caught her boyfriend’s eye and so she thought….actually I don’t know exactly what she thought. I’m guessing it was some kind of “keep your enemies closer” type of thing though. At any rate, her attentions would have been better spent trying to rein in her man’s wandering eye. Befriending someone you think is pumping your man is only gonna result in making your man look extra desirable to someone who probably wasn’t studying him in the first place and you’re gonna expose yourself as the insecure psycho you so clearly are.
2. Your fuck buddy’s fuck buddy
Now I’m a huge proponent of being a grown up when it comes to these no-strings relationships. If I ever found out that one of my readers went apeshit on her fuck buddy’s fuck buddy I would be so crushed. There is no good reason on God’s green earth for you to get mad at some girl you don’t know who happens to be sharing a peen with you. That being said, there also is no reason on God’s green earth why you should be friends with this girl either; yet I continually
get friend requests from my FB’s other jump-offs see women trying to make this friendship work. Ladies, recognize this for the #swindle that it is: she wants you to come to love her more than the penis in question so that you will fall back and let her have it all to herself. Don’t fall for it!
4. Your ex’s new girl
I’ll admit that I have become quite friendly with one of my ex’s subsequent girlfriends; but it was as a result of an extraordinary set of circumstances that I’m not gonna get into here. Regardless of how much I adore this particular woman, this is not a friendship that I can support. I mean I get the logistics of it; you and this man had things in common that he probably also has in common with her so it stands to reason that you would get along famously, right? Yeah maybe – but I still forbid you to do this. I can barely tolerate you being friends with your ex, being homegirls with his next is over-doing it. Keep the lines clean ladies.
5. Your boyfriend’s ex
Similar to the previous one, this is just a recipe for mess. I understand that it’s an appealing prospect to become close to someone who is well-versed in your man’s particular brand of bullshit, but please don’t go there. Befriending your man’s ex-girl is just an invitation for her to be all up in your nut. Then you’re gonna want to cry when you find out she’s cracking it. Just skip it.
6. Your boy’s girl
Now ladies we all waxed poetic yesterday about the joys of our male friends so I’m sure this has come up a time or two in your lives. I have a firm policy of no more than a hi, bye, and polite chit chat with my boys’ girls; and this has nothing to do with whether I actually like the girl.
I probably don’t though. I never like any of my friends’ girls. This is to prevent me from being in situations where I am going to have to be disloyal to someone; which is inevitably going to arise. Just imagine if you befriend your male friend’s girl and he starts cheating on her and you know about it. Now you’re torn right? All of a sudden your puss brain is spinning with questions like should I say something? Should I play dumb? How am I going to smile up in her face when I know what her man is up to? He was my friend first but what he’s doing is wrong. No matter how you proceed you’re screwing over someone and coming out looking like an asshole.
What do you think ladies? Are there women that you automatically deem ineligible for friendship or are you more of an equal opportunity friend? Men are there men that you won’t hang with or is it a totally different ballgame for you? Speak on it in the comments.
