Sick of your sweeties? Hit refresh on your friendship
Try something new
When your rainy day movie marathons start taking on a sense of deja-vu, it might be time to pick up a new activity. Trying something none of you have ever done before—and doing it as a group—will supply you with essential bonding time, bringing you closer together along with the rush of adrenaline that comes with freshly minted fun. You don’t have to go crazy. Skipping the standard chick flicks in favor of old black-and-whites might just do the trick.
Update old traditions
Tired of everyone bringing the same cookies to your Black Friday swap? Ready to amp up your annual Christmas tree decorating party? Reset the vibe of your favorite traditions by adding new twists. Bake cupcakes or build gingerbread houses instead of toting six dozen chocolate chip cookies to Christina’s house. Broaden your social circle to include your fave dudes from school for your next party. Don’t forget the mistletoe!
Shake things up
Still not feelin’ the love? Mix things up by adding a fresh face to your flock of femmes. Befriend the new girl at school and ask her to join you for a study party after school. Or chat up an acquaintance you’ve been meaning to get to know better. Or add your BGFs into your inner sanctum.
