Women are beautiful! I may be biased because I happen to be a woman, but we really are beautiful creatures and I’m always in awe just how amazing women are. Regardless of sexuality, I can guarantee that most women have checked out another woman at some point and maybe would say they have had a “girl crush” or “woman crush”. Before we get ahead of ourselves, I want to be clear in saying that I am not referring to women who usually like other women, this is for the women who like men but are confident enough to acknowledge the beauty in another woman.
So what is a girl/woman crush? Personally, I’d define it as a platonic admiration of another woman, whether it be internal or external. There are so many women doing great things on this planet that it is only natural to admire their handwork and accomplishments. Sometimes these crushes come in the form of a desire to be friends with her simply because you think she’s awesome; other times, it’s a general respect for her or maybe you view her as a role model. Any or all of these feelings could be described as a girl crush. The other side of the coin is a girl crush that is almost purely physical. As I stated earlier, women are gorgeous. A well-dressed, put together woman can be very appealing to men and women alike and it’s perfectly normal to acknowledge that some women are just plain hot.
Society spends a lot of time tearing women down instead of building us up, so it is up to us to do so! Magazine ads, commercials, and all other forms of media thrive off of putting women down so that we’ll feel compelled to buy some product that will “erase our flaws”. Many companies exist solely to profit from women’s insecurities and don’t strive to help women become naturally confident. This is why I believe it’s imperative that women stick together, form bonds, and compliment each other! No one else is going to do it for us, so we should do it for ourselves.
Make your friend your woman crush, perhaps on Wednesday, perhaps everyday. Tell her how amazing she is. Tell her she’s smokin’ hot! Tell her why she’s a fabulous and fierce diva. Tell her that she’s a star. A girl crush or woman crush is about uplifting other women. It’s about reminding other women of the gorgeous beings that they are, so don’t be ashamed if you have a woman crush on someone, whether it’s a friend, stranger or celebrity. Most women would be absolutely flattered to hear that another woman thinks she’s the bees knees, just as you probably would! Make someone your #wcw today, and if you aren’t into that, make yourself your own #wcw!
