1. Having someone around who has more interest in your life than what you do.
Girlfriends EXPRESS and that's the best part of having a girl best friend(s). They'll be as excited as you for anything dramatic that happens in your life, may be more. At least, they'll show they are and that's enough to keep you happy.
2. Finding every opportunity to get drunk and pour your heart out.
You don't need a proper date, time, place or appropriate clothes to drink and celebrate just about ANYTHING. But more than that, you want to sometimes just get drunk and speak with your girlfriends because you know by the end of it, they'll be as emotional as you are so it won't be embarrassing at all the next morning. We also have this awesome tendency of making everything right with each other (all issues, fights etc.) when we're wasted.
3. Being super bitchy to the world around you without really "hurting" anyone or feeling bad about it (which is only fair).
Until high school, you have the kind of girlfriends who talk about you behind your back all the time but that stops by the time you grow up. Then, the fun starts, when you and her can talk about everyone else and treating yourselves. How-much-ever you say you don't like you "gossip", that's a lie. You love it and it's not a myth. Although boys like to gossip more than us, we can be catty and enjoy it at any point of time.
4. Night overs AND the romantic conversations at every night-over.
You don't feel out of place at all being all sweet and emotional with each other. That's what you do best actually.
5. The chance to try your hands at being a "detective".
Only girlfriends have the time to investigate YOUR situation fully - text messages from your crush to conclude if he likes you too, your boyfriend's style of talking to find out if he is still in love with you and a person's behaviour towards you to come to a definite conclusion that he/she likes you or not and what should be your next step - to call it "war" or not?
6. Dressing up without any reason - for each other.
We like to dress up, sometimes for a reason, sometimes without a reason. However, till we have our girlfriends around, we have no issues in fulfilling our needs and desires of looking sexy whenever we want because they'll always be ready to have SOME FUN.
7. Trusting each other for doing up each other's hair and make up because you understand the sensitivity of the situation.
You know you can experiment because you know you won't be made fun of in a nasty way. Laughing is one thing but receiving comments you really don't want to hear is another. Girlfriends understand this feeling perfectly, thank god for that.
8. Discussing each and every detail of your sexual encounters.
Let's be honest, it's fun to be able to have a conversation about what you liked, what you didn't and what next you should try when it comes to your sexual life with your partner. If you try talking about this with your guy best friend, he'll probably lose his ears. Girlfriends, on the other hand, will show interest as if they were experiences of their own. That's what makes it fun to talk to them about it.
9. You have a motherly figure around whenever you need one.
You can cry your heart out for the stupidest of reasons and they won't judge because they'll do exactly that when they are unhappy. You guys together are epitomes of most useless conversations, drunk escapades, crazy arguments and crazier love. You understand girl problems and sometimes, these problems can only be discussed with your girl.
10. Those hugs and kisses that only a girlfriend can give you, guys are too "cool" for that.
Good moment, bad moment, nervous moment, stupid mood swings and what not - only a girlfriend can pacify you or wish you "congratulations" by giving you a big hug because sometimes, that's all you need. You're allowed to "expect" things from your girlfriend because she does too, you're allowed to be mad at her like you both are in a relationship because she gets mad too (no matter how cheesy the world thinks it is), you're as emotional as her and you have those "aggressive" phases when your hormones apparently go wrong somehow, just like her. She's like you because that's how "girls" are designed - however emotional and sensitive you may be on the outside, you're much stronger on the outside.
