Truth: you’re never going to get along with every person you meet. Personalities differ, and we are all brought up in unique situations. So in my opinion it’s natural that you won’t immediately click or become BFFs with everyone you meet. But what about the girl who is incapable of making any female friends?
That’s right. I was inspired by The Bachelor, again.

I’ve heard the many arguments the Tierras of the world make: all women are catty, women just don’t like me, girls are jealous, I’m so misunderstood. Some of those may be true about a handful of women a person meets throughout her lifetime, but I just have a really hard time believing that a woman is incapable of cultivating even a single friendship with another woman.
Sure, she may be super-athletic or a tomboy, but there are other women out there like that. And maybe she has tons of brothers and is used to male friendships, but again there are plenty of other women who have grown up with similar experiences. So when it comes down to it, I guess I just don’t get it.
I’ve heard the saying, “don’t trust a woman who can’t make female friends,” and I’m not quite sure I’d take it that far, but I sure as hell can’t understand it. To me it’s a red flag that points to some bigger issue, but who am I to diagnose that issue? I’m no psychiatrist.
Tell me your thoughts. How do you feel about women without any female friends? Do you think they’re untrustworthy or just misunderstood?
