The code of guidelines that are girls most obey in order not to get kicked out of the community.
There are many opinions if the Girl Code actually exists, as well as the Guy Code.
1) If you change boyfriends so fast they rarely achieve name status, a man must be around for at least six weeks before you make your friends bother to learn his first name. Until such time, he should be referred to as "The boy" or "That guy".

2) All girls must have a "Mr.Right Now". This is the guy friend who is always ready and available to hang out with you, and may or may not like you as more than a friend. He is always ready to party till dawn, and do things you wish you didn't remember in the morning. He's not “Mr. Right,” but he may be good enough to be “Mr. Right Now.”

3) If you just met a guy and know absolutley nothing about him, but need to refer to him during 'girl talk' you use one example of who he is, something he has, or what he does, and he becomes... that guy.
(Ex. "The Camaro guy", "The Trainer dude", "The Four a.m. in the Taxi Guy")

4) Every girl must wait at least a day and a half before calling a guy whose number she has retreived.

5) You are never in any case to date a friends ex or a guy who she was really into.
Exception: If he's one of those guys who every girl likes.

6) You are to never diss a friends boyfriend except to agree lightly or nod when she says he's being a asshole. In most cases it is easier to nod.
Exception: If a guy cheated or dumped your friend is is exceptional for you to claim he isn't good enough, and that she deserves better as well as reminding her that he was an asshole anyway.

7) If you wan't to date a friend brother it is required that you get said friends permission.

8) No girl is to ever hang out with the boyfriend of a friend without the friend present. If permission to is granted their should be at least 3 other people with you.

9) No girl may have more than one 'Love of her Life' at one time, though having a boyfriend and a 'Love of her Life' is fine.

10) No girl shall wear the same outfit or perfume as a friend is they will knowingly be in the same place.

11) No girl shall purchase a distinctive item of clothing which she is aware her friend owns without express permission from the friend.

12) No girl shall borrow an item of clothing without asking the clothing owner's permission, unless both parties have made an official decision to waive this rule in the context of their friendship.

13) An eye for an eye and a foot for a foot. If a friend borrows an item of clothing and destroys it, said friend must re-pay it.

14) The penalty for exposing a secret to an unauthorized party shall be exile from Girlville.

15) A girl who can substantially claim that she was not aware that a piece of information was a secret at the time she exposed it shall not be subject to punishment.

16) Inside jokes are not to be explained to outsiders.

17) Always leave a man wanting more but don't leave him guessing too long since guys do not take hints easily.

18) If a guy your friend is into asks for your number, you are to deny it and walk away, and/or slip him your friends number while saying, "I think she is more your type, you should call her".

19) Chicks before Dicks. Simple.

20) In a case where a friend spreads a horrible rumor about a friend, and than apologizes they are to be given the cold-shoulder for at least 3 days.

21) In a fight between a friend and her boyfriend you must always choose your friends side.

22) When dating a girl should find equal and/or enough time to still hang out with her girls.

23) Never insult your friend but never let your friend leave the house looking hideous. Find a better way to tell your friend how they look.
Ex: 'I think your other jeans are nice', 'You should wear less eyeliner, you have great eyes'.

24) When a friend is drunk, never allow her to dial, drive or leave with a random guy.

25) When a friend calls you up complaining about how she is drunk and can't go home you must allow her to stay at your house, without letting your parentals (if you live with them) find out.

26) When out with the ladies, if Girl #1 points out a guy that she is interested in, Girl #2 should avoid making a bee-line over to him to get his number for herself. Show some respect.

27) When said evening is described as a "Girls’ Night Out" that means it is for GIRLS ONLY. Consider it payback for all those tree houses and snow forts we couldn’t enter as children. Do not invite your boyfriend.

28) Stop being the "Me too!" girl If your friend is telling a story, stop stealing her thunder – and her story – by constantly trying to one-up her. For example:
GIRL 1: I had a horrible day. My flat iron broke in the middle of straightening, I dropped my brand new bottle of Burberry Touch on the bathroom floor, I missed the bus by two seconds and was late for school, my teacher yelled at me for something Sally did, and I got into a fight with Jason over whose family we’re spending Thanksgiving with.
GIRL 2: Oh that’s horrible. The same thing happened to me today, only I stepped in gum on the subway platform too. And when I went to scrape it off, I tripped and ripped my stockings and it reminded me of the time I was at my ex-boyfriend’s place for Christmas...

29) Be a responsible friend and not a 'Yes-Girl'. If a friend is asking you if she should get back together with her ex who chated on her, never wanted to hang out with her and than blamed her for them breaking up, and you say 'Yes', than you're a bad friend. Friends are supposed to protect and help friends. SO say your part even if they don't like what you have to say.

30) Don't be a hater. If a girl walks in looking gorgeous, girls automatically try to find something bad about her. But who knows? She could have just lose a friend, or got dumped, etc. So be nice and stop hating.

31) Don't go against the Girl Code

An established code, a womans law that 'every girl should follow'? Bits and pieces have been nabbed from dotted groups and edited to establish an official code, but the majority have been thought up by moi after attending an all girls school for 5 years. 5 years is a VERY long time. Filled with bitchiness and an inability to look passed image, as well as including the perks and positives this is..... THE GIRL CODE

*note this is created to take with a large dose of sarcasm and irony :)

Let's follow the spice girls lead and bring back GIRL POWER!
Any rulebreak is punishable by bitching from fellow females and general looking down upon... (note rules are not in order of importance, bar rule #1)

1# Rule no 1 and the MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL.. No girl may date her friend's; exs, past crushes, guys who have humiliated/used her and guys she currently fancies... Do this at your own risk biatch!! Acceptions to rule: a) Your friend has given you permission/ couldn't care less b) The said fancying/going out happened before the age of puberty

2# It is perfectly acceptable to take an automatic dislike to a girl/ judge them without ever speaking to them

3# Chocolate is an accepted food in any occasion

4# A girl has a right to lie in order to keep a secret told to her by her best friend.

10# We have to go through childbirth/periods/waxing so are the downtrodden sex and this can be used in any disagreement/argument with a member of the male species.. let them feel our PAIN

11# A chick flick wins over an action/lad move every time

12# A guy who claims to love chick flicks must be looked at in suspicion.. either he's after something or theres something he's not telling you (*cough).. make him sit through 'crossroads' and if he survives that then he may be counted as genuine but trust him at your own peril!

13# Two friends should not hook up with the same guy in the same night HAVE SOME SELF RESPECT LADIES!

14# Never may a thong/ G-string be worn with a short skirt.. There are things your companions do not need to see!

17# Females are always obligated to notice and comment on any change of hair cut or color, new clothes, jewlerry etc

24# When drunk taking posey pictures if perfectly acceptable.. at that point you think your hot and the camera needs to know it

"Girl Code" means whatever we decide it means. But a few things should be part of any Girl Code:
1) If you see a woman with her skirt tucked in her panties, let her know ASAP.
2) If someone has lipstick on her teeth or it's feathered out from her lips, let her know in a way that lets her maintain her dignity. Same applies if her mascara/eyeliner is running.
3) Serious flirting with another woman's boyfriend or spouse is wrong. Period.
4) If a man you know a friend is seriously interested in shows no interest in her but asks you out, it isn't disloyal to say "yes." Saying "no" is not going to make him interested in your friend. But your friend deserves the courtesy of knowing he asked you out and that you said "yes."
5) You leave only with the friends you came with.
6) If sharing a hotel rm, etc,. you don't bring anyone back with you. You don't have the right to potentially endanger the lives of your friends by bringing back someone none of you knows.
7) You never leave a friend behind because they aren't ready to leave but you are. No matter if your friend is drunk or just not ready to leave. Find a way to get her to leave with you. Better to have a friend not talking to you because she's mad than because she's dead.
8) NO ONE who has had a few too many drinks or is drunk gets behind the wheel. Period. Call a cab, call the police. They'd rather you do that than have to pull your lifeless body from your car or that of the other car you hit head-on.
