Guide to Being a Good Friend

Enlarge this photo and check out the advice for being a good friend! (From Glamour Magazine)

1. Gossip yes, but don't get mean. She'll wonder whether you're talking that way about her to everyone else.

2. If she's got a poppy seed in her teeth, mascara under her eyes, or deodorant on her sweater, tell her.

3. If she's crazy about him, pretend he's your brother and never, ever date him.

4. Do not--repeat, do not--side with her mother.

5. Have that scary fight about how she's been bugging you. If you can go there for a guy, you can for her, too.

6. Keep her ring size filed away in case you-know-who calls for advice about you-know-what.

7. Oh, just wear the bridesmaid's dress.

8. See straight through her attempts at cool perfection and love her more for the weaknesses she's trying to hide.

9. Remind her that she wasn't that into him, either.

10. When the guy dumps her, the cat gets cancer, the job explodes, simply be there.

What nice sentiments! Always good little tid-bits to keep in mind to be a better friend. I think its a good goal that we all can have!

I really like this! I may have sided with a bestie's mother recently... We're fine now, but it was a bad decision then!

Thanks for posting this!
