Why are women so unapproachable

I would really like to make more women friends, but being a woman myself, I find it hard to approach other women. Women, to me at least, seems more catty, jealous, and just down right competitive when it comes to other women. Why? I would like to be your friend..tell me how? I am a great friend =)

  • we are all those things, but the thing is we NEED woman friends because we need a backbone support that men cant understand for example pregnancies and we are more emotional. Its just the way we were made it cant be explained. But usually I make friends from girls that have the same similarities as I do and we like the same things or we spend a lot of time together like some of my co workers

  • Where do you live? I've been looking for new mommy friends too! Women tend to think the world is against them. We've been taught that everyone is just trying to make our lives harder. Anyway, pm me if you wanna talk, I'm a good friend too!

  • It's a personality thing a lot of women feel threatened by other women expesially if they are more prettier than they are or thinner or have more money.Most of my friends are my husbands family.

  • I have never understood these women who have no women friends - who don't trust women. Honestly I think it's rather creepy.

    I love and adore my DH beyond compare but holy heck - he's just a man. I would be completely lost with my friends - they help me deal with the minutiae of life. We help each other, make each other laugh, and just generally have fun together. My life is certainly not perfect and neither are theirs but that's what is so great - we all have different problems and strengths so we can help each other.

    I mean, wtf? You're basically saying you can't get along with 51% of the human race? Yikes!

    Just be yourself and make an effort. It worked in kindergarten and it will work now.
