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.
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
