When you fall in love, it’s really easy to unknowingly begin neglecting your other relationships as you attempt to get to know this new person in every way imaginable. It’s tempting to blow off all-girls outings because sometimes, you just want to Netflix and Chill; however, a new study suggests that spending time with your girls is not only good for your overall wellness, but also, for your sex life.
The survey, which was conducted by the beverage company, Palm Breeze, revealed that women who make enough time for their girls are happier in their relationships and more satisfied with their sex lives.
73 percent of women reported that girl time makes them feel happier, and 65 percent reported that they feel less stressed when spending time with the girls.
While researchers did not speculate why they believe this is the case, I think that the answer is quite obvious: It’s impossible for one person to fulfill your every need and it’s selfish to expect them to do so. Bae is great, however, there are some voids that he simply won’t be able to fill—and that’s okay. But you know what will help to fill those voids? Time with your friends. Relying on him to be your lover and your homegirl will likely only lead to frustration and reduced satisfaction within your relationship.
So the next time he complains about you stepping out with the girls, tell him, “I’m doing this for us.”
