But also, we're the kinds of women you can bring around your guy friends without killing all the fun. We're naturally more inclined to get along better with guys since we grew up that way. So we're down for random adventures, rocky mountain trails at midnight, bonfires, video game marathons, and sporting events.
We won't push
Girls who grew up with big brothers know that men aren’t usually big talkers -- especially when it comes to relationships. We know you're not dying to talk about your feelings, and we're good with it. If you say nothing's wrong, we believe you.
We also won't hold grudges. So you don't ever have to worry about us hanging on to last week's fight for the next three months. Some things take time to work themselves out. We know that mistakes happen, too -- so you get the added benefit of our huge forgiveness reservoir.
We'll laugh at your jokes -- and ourselves
Dads may be the kings of corny jokes; but big brothers help us see the humor all around us. Older male siblings make life one big comedy show. And in doing so, we learn to find self-deprecating humor in our own behaviors and relationships. Our minds are sharp; our tongues are even sharper. We can take a joke and we have no problem going toe-to-toe. Make us laugh, and you're in.
