What Can You Learn About a Woman From Her Friends?

Bethany Heinesh Bethany Heinesh • 6/04/15

Remember the old adage, “Birds of a feather flock together”? Well, it’s great advice and completely true. You can tell a lot about a woman by the friends she hangs out with.

For example, if your girlfriend’s posse is comprised of drunken college girls who go bar hopping — and bed hopping — every weekend, you might want to sit up and take notice. If her friends are a bunch of bookworms who love to study quantum physics, chances are, she is also an avid academic. Likewise, if all of her friends are athletes, she is probably a workout buff herself. Typically, you can gauge the character of a woman by the character of her friends.

What do they say?

You can learn even more about your girlfriend by what her friends say about her when she’s not around. In most cases, you should take the input of your girlfriend’s friends at face value. As you know, women are often quite the gossip and will reveal more about your lovely lady than originally intended. If you ask your gal’s besties about her, and they are willing to give you the scoop, listen closely. Women can be very forthcoming.

If I introduced you to any of my friends, they would tell you the same things about me. They’d say I am honest and value the importance of being a good person. I am not telling you this to toot my own horn. They’d also tell you I’m addicted to Diet Dr. Pepper and have a weird obsession with driving as a method of meditation. I’m telling you this as an example of what you should expect when you talk to the members of your girlfriend’s self-proclaimed social circle.

You want to be with a woman who is real, someone who is consistently herself, quirks, strange habits and all. You want to be involved with a woman who has a stand-up group of friends in her corner, on standby to happily vouch for her. When you meet the important people in your girlfriend’s life, and they consistently sing praises on her behalf, you’ve got yourself a keeper.

If you should set out to get the 411 from your girlfriend’s friends, and run into a bunch of naysayers along the way, be careful. After all, if her friends can’t speak highly of her, it’s likely your girlfriend is guilty of low-living.
