You already know you should treat others the way you want to be treated. After all, you don’t want to end up as the most hated woman in town. That’s why you have to watch what you say and do whenever you’re out in public, and whenever you go online. Otherwise, you’re going to end up with a bad reputation, and not a lot of friends.

  1. Sending screenshots. If you’re the girl who screenshots every conversation she has, then your friends are going to start telling you less and less. They’ll always be worried that you’ll send their rants to the person they’ve been ranting about.
  2. Pretending you’re interested in a man. Feel free to flirt with any and every guy you meet. Just don’t pretend you’re interested in forming a serious relationship with him when that’s the last thing on your mind, because you don’t want to break any hearts.
  3. Talking behind your coworkers’ backs. You need to know the right time and place to spill gossip. If you tell the wrong person the wrong thing, then your story is going to get passed around until it gets you in trouble.
  4. Stealing a friend’s boyfriend. If a guy really likes you, then he’ll break up with his girlfriend and ask you out. That’s why there’s never an acceptable reason to steal a man away, or sleep with him when you know it’ll make him a cheater.
  5. Posting unflattering photos. Don’t upload group pictures where all of your friends look ugly, just because you look pretty in comparison. Then they’ll do the same to you.
  6. Snooping. If your friend just so happens to leave her Facebook open on her laptop when she goes to the bathroom, feel free to post a funny status. Just don’t look through her messages to see what she’s been saying to her crush.
  7. Giving unwanted advice. Don’t try to set your friends up on dates if they insist they’re happy being single. Don’t tell them what types of outfits would make them look skinnier, either.
  8. Staring at your phone. If someone else is talking, do them the curtesy of actually paying attention to what they’re saying. If you never take your eyes off of your phone, no one will want to talk to you.
  9. Not paying your share. Whenever you go out, ask for separate checks. If you don’t pay for your share of the meal, you won’t be getting asked out for drinks again anytime soon.
  10. Hating on other women. Don’t be the girl who hates every other girl in the world. There are some nice women out there, so try to be friendly to the ones you meet instead of viewing them as your competition.
