Bros Before Hos – For Everyone

Everyone’s heard it before; “Bros Before Hos” might as well be the young male generation’s slogan. Most guys will choose to spend more time with their friends than their girlfriends. Why don’t girls feel the same way, though? It’s more than just fairly common for women to “ditch” their friends for their boyfriends – and on a regular basis. And although the one-on-one, monogamous aspect of a relationship is more important, typically, to the woman than the man, it doesn’t mean that a romantic relationship should necessarily be the primary focus in a woman’s life, either. It’s not healthy, it’s not productive, and it might even chase your man away.

Ladies everywhere need to be better friends. Really. They need to focus more on the people who have been around for a while and focus less on what is exciting and new, as novel as it may seem. Study after study after study proves that a strong support group helps make life as a human “easier” – more enjoyable. It is crucial to nurture enduring friendships to keep that support. So, ladies, don’t bail on your friends for that impromptu movie your boyfriend brought over. Wait until the relationship is serious enough to actually mean something (to both of you) before you begin to push your friends away.

Don’t panic, “Stage Five” Clingers; because, as the saying goes, there is a time and a place for everything. Once you two really become exclusive and/or infatuated, you can and should begin to prioritize each other more. But until then, it’s risky to push away the people closest to you – and can be perceived in all kinds of negative ways from your man’s point of view (desperate much?). Keep your friends. They’ll be there for you if and when it’s over (or at least disagree with him when he calls you crazy).
