I don't know??? Why are they? Trying to make female friends is like pulling teeth! It's so friggin' difficult!

I agree with former posts about how women are raised to be less direct, etc. Some were also raised by mothers who complained about their lives but never did anything to improve it, thus they grew up the same way. And speaking of mothers, if you were raised by a b&^%% the chances are higher that you might become one as well simply because you might not have learned another way of being.

Either I attract really great people, or I don't take notice of others that much.

Actually, I have a few male friends & will say men can be biatches too

A buddy of mine went through a rough spot for a while. He was in a bad mood for a couple of years lol. A bunch of us were hanging out (more guys than gals, really) and my friend is sitting in a chair, looks up at us, and says "you're all b*tches". It cracked me up. Damn he was a cranky pain the ass.

Try to keep such thoughts out of your head if you can. Remember if you're like me and have had a lot of really bad experiences with other women, you might start looking negatively on all women and they can sense that and it can make things uncomfortable, thus inviting cattiness that could've probably been avoided.

You'd get the idea in this thread that men never, ever get into foul moods.

How cliche, women are all b*tches -- you know -- sometimes you do reap what you sow

Indeed. I'm sorry, but women that state they have issues with women in general just have personal problems. You only attract people of your own caliber. So, if you mostly know crappy people (men or women), it's time to look in the mirror. With that said, I've had the same best friends going on two decades now. I'm trying to get pregnant right now and one of my girls said to me if I couldn't carry it, she'd do it in a heart beat. That's about as amazing as a friendship could be. They're all incredibly wonderful women.

I have one female friend right now, whom I went to college with the first time I went. She's older than me, very beautiful, outgoing, sweet just the nicest person I know. She's been in the military for going on eight years now. Gosh I would love to see her again sometime.

There are women bullies and alpha females just like among men. My daughter is approaching adolescence and seeing her go through things with her friends is giving me all new insight. Also I participate on a single parents forum, with mostly females, and I've seen read some crazy stories of intra-sister verbal violence. Take no prisoners type of stuff.

I have been practicing not judging women by the clothes they don't wear, on the internet. I have found it helps me have a better mood, sometimes.

What is difficult is when you were fat and ugly in high school and were no competition...when that changes and you are thrown into the 'competition' - it is toxic. Plus in the work place with generational differences, relating with the former prom queens of 2000 when you graduated 10 years before as fat 'n pimply - coping is a challenge. I have really developed a dislike for my gender and wish I could just blow them all off !
