As seen in the current issue of Glamour:
Gossip, yes, but don’t get mean. She’ll wonder whether you’re talking that way about her to everyone else.
If she’s got a poppy seed in her teeth, mascara under her eyes or deodorant on her sweater, tell her!
Do not, repeat, do not side with her mother.
If she’s crazy about him pretend he’s your brother and never date him. EVER
Have that scary fight about how she’s been bugging you. If you can go there for a guy, you can for her too.
Oh, just wear the bridesmaid’s dress.
Remind her that she wasn’t that into him, either.
See straight through her attempt at cool perfection and lover her more for the weaknesses she’s trying to hide.
Keep her ring size filed away in case you-know-who calls for advice about you-know-what.
When the guy dumps her, the cat gets cancer, the job explodes, simply be there.
