There comes a time in every woman’s life when crosses the threshold of grown womanhood. Not every woman makes this transition at the same time and though it usually happens after a woman is past her 20s, age is no guarantee. One tell-tale sign that a person has reached grown-woman status is the company she keeps. Her ability and willingness for dealing with nonsense have significantly diminished and thus, many have been removed from her circle. Here are five friendships grown-women don’t entertain.

The frenemy

A frenemy is a person who parades around pretending to be a friend but in reality, she is a rival. Frenemies don’t really care for you, but they subscribe to the ideology that it’s best to keep your friends close and your enemies closer. The thing is, it’s somewhat difficult to hide true intentions longterm. Your frenemy doesn’t actually like you, which is why their actions toward you can come off somewhat erratic. Frenemies can best be compared to Sour Patch Kids. First, they’re sour. Then, they’re sweet. One minute they’re singing your praises and the next, they’re cutting you down.
