I’ve always been a “guy’s girl” I may look “girly” but rarely spend time on myself being girly. I relate better to a group of people who if they have an issue can bring it up hash it out and move on. I’ve always despised the cliques, gossip and drama of a group of females. I had lots of girlfriends but never close ones because I didn’t want to deal with it. I grew up playing outside all day with boys. Guns, Ghostbusters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, GI Joes, Hot Wheels.  

Don’t get me wrong I love Barbie and Disney Princesses as much as the next girl but I don’t want to worry about Barbie and Midge wearing the same outfit as Skipper and how embarrassing it would be to be seen at the mall. You get my point.

Anyway, I’ve very slowly started to realize the importance of close women/girlfriends in my life creatively, spiritually and emotionally. I am so thankful to be seeing some amazing women come into my life who feel the same and I couldn’t be more thankful. 

Do you have close girlfriends in your life?

    I am always amazed at the times I hear this same type of self-description yet I can’t find many of the same type of people who live near me.

    Thank you for this post. It reminds me there are guy-girlies out there and that they are seeking similar type friendships. It is hard, no? To find someone who meets the creative yet discerning yet compassionate yet anti-drama friend. I am 48 years old and still struggle with it myself.

    I sound like a stalker… I’ll stop. All of that to say thank you for being authentic and open.
