I'm one of those girls who doesn't like most people.
Honestly, I'm a geeky introvert. I like people only in small doses.
Unfortunately other girls my age (21) still act like 16 year olds. Well, the ones I keep running into. I don't really have the capacity to deal with a woman who is continually fussing about exes and indulging in celebrity gossip. I think I'd go postal.
I also don't think other girls like me. My shy awkwardness somehow comes off as snobby. Strangely, I've never had that issue with guys.
Yep I think I might be a woman that doesn't like other women. Most of the time they are just b!tchy. I really only have one female friend who is on a similar path to me and who has similar interests which are far from mainstream. This is particularly true for the way we think about health and parenting. I have felt isolated for a long time now and since having a child it's only gotten worse. It's always been difficult to find people who are honestly not F'd up! In my teen years there's so much going on in a peer sense that girls are just a nasty breed and then in early adult hood there's drugs, other hang ups and insecurities over boyfriends and now as 30+ woman it has changed into a different kind of status war based on what your husband does for a living or who's kid is better then who's It never ends! What about the important things in life? Where has girl power gone? Arrhhh I think I've ranted enough lol
GuineaPigQueen I also think other women don't like me! And this has been an issue for me for some time now. For as long as I can remember there have been women who are jealous of me and it makes them nasty or intimidated.

Hmm...sounds awfully misogynistic to me.
I'm not a girly-girl. I don't really know how to apply make-up, style my hair, match clothing. I suck at interior decoration. I wear skirts because they're breezy on hot days and allow for more movement than shorts. I don't like jewelry as presents (though I've had a few necklaces gifted to me that I did like). I guess I'm not really "into" the things that women are supposed to like. I've been friends with other women throughout my entire adult life, but it seems like it's inappropriate for married women to be friends with men, so my potential friend pool is rather limited. Married men also usually have different lifestyles than married women (most of my friends' husbands are at work during the day while most of my friends work at home or at tasks that are kid-friendly). However, few of my female friends are "into" things that women are supposed to be into. Most of them are geeks. There are certainly women who I dislike, but I don't assume that those women define my gender.
