As a female, we are basically programmed to have frenemies... If for some reason you don't know what this term means, a frenemy (noun) is someone who is both friend and enemy, a relationship that is both mutually beneficial or dependent while being competitive, fraught with risk and mistrust.
It's inevitable. Don't get me wrong, guys have frenemies also, but I just feel like girl frenemies are the absolute worst. As a female, I know we are all (whether we are willing to admit it or not) evil and manipulative and any other spiteful, bitchy adjective you could ever think of.
Here's a list of all the types of frenemies us ladies have to deal with:
Enemies turned best friends
:You have said some of the harshest things possible about this girl, mentally plotted her death and now you are at the same pregame together telling her how cute her new Michael Kors watch is. Somehow the two of you have decided to put your differences aside and become friends. Maybe it is because the two of you used to be in the same social circle, or maybe it is because you decided that being enemies was pointless and that you were never fighting for a real reason. Whatever the case, you find yourself acting like friends.
The two of you fight for attention, talking over one another and not being able to sit still in a conversation while the other is talking. You are also judgmental towards one another, and are quick to blow up each other’s spot about things that are embarrassing. Most of all, the two of you are infamous for talking shit about one another, especially behind one another’s back.
The eskimo sister frenemy
: Eskimo sisters who you are friendly with – but are not necessarily friends with – are, perhaps, the bitchiest of frenemies. This is the frenemy who has hooked up with a guy that you used to like, and constantly brings him up when you are with her. This could be the guy that you once really liked and this girl still hooked up with him.
Since that moment, every time you two are together gossiping about boys, she will tend to throw in the occasional, “Well, when I hooked up with him…” comment. This just makes you want to leap across the room and scratch her eyes out. If this is a guy that you just hooked up with, and she has hooked up with before you, she lets you know that the sex was just okay when you hooked up with him. Clearly you should be cautious.
The social networking frenemy
: This frenemy is the girl that you are following on Twitter or Instagram. Maybe you are even friends with her on Facebook and you love to hate on her profile picture. She puts up pictures of herself in a training bra and shorts, so you show all your friends how slutty she looks in her pictures.
She makes a status about how everyone should give Kim Kardashian a break, so you put it in your thread to make fun of her.
Then it all changes a few days later when she puts up a picture of her new puppy, so you comment saying how “Jealous” you are, and how lucky she is. This pattern oscillates back and forth for a while. But in person, you are kind and act like you were not just mimicking her mirror pictures in bathroom.
The dating triangle frenemy
: This is where your frenemy can be two different kind of girls: the first is your guy friend’s girlfriend. You may have a best guy friend, or a just a regular guy, who is in a relationship with someone. So you and his new girlfriend are forced to hangout.
You can either dislike her for straightforward reasons – varying from her not being pretty enough to her personality sucking – or you do not dislike her for no reason at all – she is just not a girl that you can picture yourself being friends with.
The second frenemy is a one of your boyfriend’s girl friend. She is always texting your boyfriend to see what he is up to, and does not have any sense of boundaries when it comes to your relationship. You complain to your boyfriend about her, but he really does not find himself doing anything about it. Therefore, the frenemy relationship develops.
Miss thinks she knows it all
: This is the girl who believes that she has life all figured out. She will argue with you that 2+2=5, that the sky is green and that the grass is blue. No matter what the conversation is, her point of view is correct. You are sadly mistaken if you think that she is going to tell you that you are correct.
When you go to her for advice about a guy, she will give you insight about him as if she dated him herself. She will tell you what to do rather than give you advice. She is the girl who will always give her opinion and answer questions, even if they are not directed toward her. She helps you perfect your eye-roll, seeing as 85% of the things that come out of her mouth are complete, and total, bullshit.
The childhood friend
: The childhood friend is someone who you might find yourself forced to be friends with; therefore, your dislike for her ensues. You have been friends with one another all of your lives, so the list of dirt – as well as positives – that you might have to say about one another could be read for days.
Your frenemy-ship also grew due to the amount of loyalty and respect that is expected from a childhood friendship. If you and this girl get into an argument over something as silly as not letting her know about your plans, you take it to heart because you do not expect someone you have known for so long to treat you that way. You are competitive with one another and are sensitive about most of your actions and words because of how long you have known one another.
The work frenemy
: This girl who is beyond competitive. She is competitive to the point where you give up even trying to talk to her. She loves to hear her own voice and is not afraid to project it. She steals your ideas, tweaks them a little and runs off with them as if they are her own.
She either lacks creativity, or she has way too much of it for her own good. You have to be nice to her because you guys work in the same vicinity, yet there is nothing more you would like to do than to tell her to go scratch. You shadily find places to complain about her to other co-workers, and let it be known that you do not really like her. All the while, you will compliment the picture of her Maltese on her desk.
Moral of the story: Women are evil.
