We all know what Bro Code is, but do you know anything about the Girl Code? It doesn't get that much recognition, but now the hidden secrets are revealed.

"Hey Babe!"

"If a woman comes up to you and asks like she's your best friend. Play along, she's probably trying to shake a douche. For example a random guy did this for me once too. I was walking downtown at night on my way to meet some friends and an old man stopped me to ask for directions to a bar. I pointed him in the right direction and went along on my merry way and a block later, in the opposite direction of what I told him, I noticed he was trailing behind me. I turned around and went the other direction and when he passed by me, he stopped me again and asked me to get a drink with him. I said no thanks and continued walking and he kept following me and I guess some guy noticed everything that was happening so he waved me over and said 'Hey babe, there you are!' Old man went away after that and I was super thankful for that stranger to pretend like he was with me." Source

"If someone ever needs a pad or a tampon, you give them one. Doesn't matter if they're a stranger, if you hate them, whatever. You always give them one." Source

Bathroom Besties
Bathroom Besties

"Be bathroom besties, even if you're total strangers. Help out any girl in an emergency tampon/pad/toilet paper situation. Discreetly let a girl know if she's got a fixable wardrobe malfunction. Keep an eye out in case someone looks like they're being harassed or in danger." Source

Escape Plan
Escape Plan

"If you're going out with a new guy, make sure a friend knows where you're going, what his name is, and have an escape plan in case he's a lunatic. If you leave a drink unattended in a public place (like a party or club), never go back to it just grab something else because someone might have slipped something in it. Also, I don't care if the girl is your worst enemy, if she needs a tampon just give her one." Source

Drunk Girl Respect
Drunk Girl Respect

"Always try to help a fellow drunk girl in the bathroom when she needs it. Lend a hair tie, band-aids, tampons, etc. One time, a drunk girl cried when I gave her a bobby pin." Source

Be Fast!
Be Fast!

"If you go into the bathroom and someone is in a stall being very, very quiet, she is pooping and doesn't want to do it with you in the room. So you do your business as quickly as you can and leave." Source

Looking Out For Your Gender
Looking Out For Your Gender

"Ask other women if they need anything when you hear them in the bathroom throwing up or crying. I was at McDonald's getting breakfast the other day while crying. The cashier unobtrusively handed me a wad of napkins and asked with genuine concern if I was okay. Made me cry harder because it's nice when other women look out for you in some small way." Source

Dead To You
Dead To You

"If some b-tch is being rude/mean to your friend, then he/she's dead to you. The pins come out of the voodoo doll the moment that b-tch apologizes and your friend is okay with him/her again, though." Source

Bite Your Tongue
Bite Your Tongue

"No matter how insane it gets, if you are a bridesmaid or maid of honor, you keep your head down, bite your tongue and just try to get through it. You can ditch them after the wedding if it's really that bad." Source

Safety Code/Life Code
Safety Code/Life Code

"Safety Code: If your girl needs to pee, the two of you get up and go to the bathroom together. If you're leaving a location, you walk her to her car and she drives you to yours. If a girl leaves a drink on the bar, I am going eagle-eye the f--k out of it until she gets back. Some dude being an unrelenting douche and not getting the hint? Rush in and make sh-t up - 'Oh my God, Jen! Thank God you're here! F--king Ryan broke up with me! Again! He says it's not me, it's him....Oh, I'm sorry, guy. My a--hole boyfriend just broke up with me and.. whatever...' and hustle her the f--k out of that situation. In my experience, no-one wants to deal with anyone else's relationship bullsh-t and he won't want to get further enmeshed. The fear of being attacked is permanently lodged in the back of my brain and I will do pretty much anything I can to minimize that risk. Life Code: Tell your girls you love them. Share the cheese plate. Don't f--k their exes. 'I love those shoes!'. 'Thanks! I got them at Target! $29.99!'." Source

Compliments Go Far
Compliments Go Far

"Compliment. You compliment shoes, top, hair, makeup, etc. When you're going out with friends to bar/club/party, whatever, you compliment your friend(s)." Source

Being Jelly
Being Jelly

"If a friend/family member/any other woman is awarded/commended for some achievement, show support. It's not always easy to hide jealousy, but dammit you do it." Source

Shotgun
Shotgun

"I don't like this one. If girl A tells girl B that she likes boy A, then girl B may never express that she is interested/likes boy A (even if she has known and liked boy A for longer than girl A). It's kind of like the crush version of calling shotgun--but more strict!" Source

Don't Be That Lady
Don't Be That Lady

"Don't spill secrets told to you in confidence and trust. Don't be that ho who tries to steal another woman's man." Source

Come To The Rescue
Come To The Rescue

"Never let a girl walk into a bathroom stall if there's no toilet paper. Rescue any girl from a creep following/harassing her. Any pics on social media that are not mutually liked should be removed. Don't slut shame your friends."Source

Don't Get Chummy
Don't Get Chummy

"No matter how ok she seems to be with it, don't get too chummy with her boyfriend/husband. When both of them are together you make a point of looking and talking more to her than him. You don't date her ex unless she's fine with it. Even if you don't know her, you're going to help her go through womanly things, if it's within your power to do so. That may include giving her some ibuprofen for her period pains or taking her to an abortion clinic." Source
