You and your crew have been stuck together like glue for
years now, but now your weekly sleepover gab seshes are feeling same-old,
same-old. It’s natural to grow apart as you get older, but that doesn’t mean
you have to bid your best girl friends goodbye. Cement that LYLAS sentiment
with our top-three tips for refreshing your fabulous friendship.
Try something new
When your rainy day movie marathons start taking on a sense
of deja-vu, it might be time to pick up a new activity. Trying something none
of you have ever done before—and doing it as a group—will supply you with
essential bonding time, bringing you closer together along with the rush of
adrenaline that comes with freshly minted fun. You don’t have to go crazy.
Skipping the standard chick flicks in favor of old black-and-whites might just
do the trick.
Update old traditions
Tired of everyone bringing the same cookies to your Black
Friday swap? Ready to amp up your annual Christmas tree decorating party? Reset
the vibe of your favorite traditions by adding new twists. Bake cupcakes or
build gingerbread houses instead of toting six dozen chocolate chip cookies to
Christina’s house. Broaden your social circle to include your fave dudes from
school for your next party. Don’t forget the mistletoe!
Shake things up
Still not feelin’ the love? Mix things up by adding a fresh
face to your flock of femmes. Befriend the new girl at school and ask her to
join you for a study party after school. Or chat up an acquaintance you’ve been
meaning to get to know better. Or add your BGFs into your inner sanctum.
Good luck, girlie!
