Want to be a great girlfriend? Follow these simple rules and be the best buddy your friend could ever have.

Give it back
If your friend can be there for you every time you stumble, she expects the same from you. If she’s been with you through your heart breaks and your professional lows, you need to be there with her through her ups and downs. It’s heartless to expect everything from her all the time. So, reciprocate and give back all that you have got from her.

Stand up for her It’s pretty easy to pass judgments on your friend’s behaviour because you feel you have the right to blast her for her faults. She might have been wrong in doing what she did, but it’s in times like this that you need to stand by her.

Do not be prejudiced in your judgements. Put yourself in her place and then decide. Sometimes you just need to be there for her.

Follow the rulebook Girls have their own rules regarding life, love and everything else, and men don’t stand a chance of deciphering these girl codes.

It’s always better to not divulge these secrets even if your boy friend wants to know. Whenever your beau wishes to know something which you don’t want to tell him (like the number of men you have dated), just say its against the girl codes to reply.

Never date her Ex Dating your girlfriend’s ex lover or crush is a strict ‘no-no’. Never steer towards this unchartered territory. It will only cause doom for you and your friendship.

Do not compare Collecting T-shirts and jackets and other paraphernalia belonging to your boyfriend gives a definite kick to all women. But never compare your stock with that of your friend’s. Her boyfriend might not be the Achilles that your guy is, and you don’t have to make her realise that.
