I Need More Girlfriends

All through high school, college, three years of work, and then graduate school, I hung out with mostly guys to Huz's chagrin. Haha. No, it didn't really bother him. I felt I relate most with men because they are simple, laid back creatures. I don't have to deal with backstabbing or cattiness. Cliche, I know. But that was what I thought. Plus in those days, I wasn't looking for a BFF. I already had a best friend to whom I told my deepest darkest secrets, my twin. So I didn't really need girlfriends, or at least, I didn't think so.

Years later, I realize that I may have missed out. In all of those years, I became close friends with only a handful of girls. I have only one best girlfriend who isn't related to me, and she doesn't even live in my city. I need more girlfriends. I want to gossip with them and talk about fashion, shoes, men and, let's be honest, other women. I want to complain and vent about anything to girlfriends who will just listen without trying to fix my "problems." I want to have fabulous ladies' nights like on Sex in the City. I may have missed my chance. Now all I am left with are guy friends who don't want to do any of those things.

Well, I still count myself lucky because I get to do most of the girlfriend stuff with my sisters. But it's just not the same because Laura is 12 years younger than me, and Tina has two kids. Neither of them can really relate to my life right now. (I still love you!!) For some reason, I only came to this realization recently--that my life is a bit lacking in girlfriends. do I solve this "problem"? Maybe my guy friends can help me.

I do not approve.

Jk. Lets hold auditions for girls who want to be part of Tara's gaggle of gals.

I also do not approve.

JK. Good idea, Laura. You, me, and Tina will be the judges. We'll make a reality show out of it.

Haha! You guys are funny.
