    Default Does anybody else think women tear each other apart too much?

    I've seen it happen too many times. Is it normal female behaviour?

    You won't find many like that on here. We just love cattiness, *****iness and we LOVE to push our parenting ideas onto others. Some of us even subscribe to having a best friend... Pathetic really!
    Y'anno just all that "typical" female stuff.
    Sorry!
    Maybe I could start a "typical female" group?? I bet I'd get way more members than 160!

    LOL.

    It was a real life group though, not just an online thing. I left though. Had enough of the drama.

    Lol.

    Isn't calling a bunch of women who joined your social group "catty and pretentious" BEING Catty and Pretensious?

    I'm not really much of a girl girl myself, but I love mum's groups, I love discussing parenting and getting ideas and suggestions from other women. Yeah, often women can become very judgmental towards eachother, but at the same time, I've met a lot of women who stand up for eachother no matter what.

    I also don't have a best friend, or group of friends that I can hang out with or go get coffee or have a great laugh with in person, because I am very busy and struggle to make friends... but I'd love to have one, I truly would. Not sure how you can choose to not subscribe to that! But each to their own

    Hi Socrates79!

    I'm like you, I can't stand cattiness, *****iness, shoe shopping - or any shopping for that matter. I find playgroups are hard cause I don't relate to other Mum's, and I'm even that bad that I don't know how to play girl games which is just thankful I have boys. LOL

    Kylie you rock!

    Caz, you obviously failed to understand my point. We are not on the same page.

    I'm pretty sure most women think they are this type of non typical woman.

    This. I've lost count of the number of women I've heard say that, whether mothers or not.

    When you make a point of how different you are from the 'pretentious and competitive' mothers, you've already put yourself on their level.
