When it’s time to make new friends, you put your best foot forward, are incredibly polite, and are hopeful that you’ll find your friendship match. Although this phase is exciting and full of promise, it’s exhausting. At some point, you just want to let your hair down, be yourself and find other ladies who can hang.
Here are 10 reasons why your next best friend can’t happen soon enough:
You don’t always want to clean before she comes over.
You don’t always have time and energy for hair and makeup.
You enjoy looking cute, but you’d rather be wearing your comfy clothes.
You’re ready for a little gossip.
A good conversationalist and trusted confidant is worth her weight in gold.
You need a gal who can handle your adult language and humor.
Your “perfect darlings” are going to lose it any minute. Hopefully she can relate.
She understands the ups and downs of military life, and won’t judge.
You’re ready for wine and want a drinking buddy.
Because it’s been too long since your last ladies’ night.
