Inverted advice column

I've always thought of myself as a pretty good girlfriend, but lately I've started to doubt my preconceived notions. Perhaps even I could improve in this area, but I just don't know what I could do to be better. In an effort to grow and learn I'd like to pose this question:

What are 3 traits of an awesome girlfriend?

Inquiring minds want to know.

3 traits of a great girlfriend:

1. She knows how to make you laugh.

2. She lets you know, through her words and actions, that you can talk to her about anything.

3. She helps you to be a better person, not by pointing out your faults to you, but by recognizing the best that you have in you, and encouraging you to be that person that she knows you're capable of being.

You are a great girlfriend, and I wish we had been able to get to know each other better before we moved away.

3 traits that you have that make you a great girlfriend:

1. You just might be the most loyal person I've ever met.

2. You're HILARIOUS.

3. You know how to make people feel comfortable, no matter how awkward the external circumstances may be.

I agree with the comments Brittany posted. I am married, so can I give this to you from a husband's perspective?

1. Don't ever do anything to be-little your companion. He/she will have opinions and that's okay. Don't judge him/her. Sometimes, even in teasing, things stick and may haunt later.

2. No secrets! Confide in your companion about'll grow much closer because of your honesty and faithfulness.

3. It's okay to have disagreements. If you feel a disagreement may turn into something heated....know how to tell your companion to give you some time so you can approach the subject after you've had time to cool down.....definitely address the issue though, don't walk away from the problem will prove to be cankerous.

Anywhooo...that's just my opinion...for what it's worth!

Love sucks. Don't be involved.

I'm with the ear doctor. Katie, it sounds like you got a top notch boyfriend.

brittany said...

Oh, now I get it. You mean how to be a better girlfriend in a dating relationship, not how to be a better friend to other girls. Oops. I still stand by my list, though.
