The Love Island trio are back and asking all the questions you were too scared to!
In this week’s episode of Yahoo UK’s new podcast Reality Check, they’re answering a range of listener questions relating to the girl code - the unwritten and often unspoken set of ethical rules that exist between a girl and her best friends.
So, should you ever tell your friend if her boyfriend makes a move on you?
The girls dive in.
Anna, 29, said: “Why would you not say?”
Scientist Yewande, 25, added: “When you tell her and you explain what happened, she should trust you, you’re her friend.”
“I wouldn’t want to lie to your friend, I’d just want to say, look this is what’s been going on,” Love Island winner, Amber, 22 added.
Anna, 29, interjected: “And if she hears it from someone else, then it’s a different story and it’s worse - it looks like you’re doing something behind her back.”
Yewande was pretty firm.
“If your man hit on me and I didn’t tell you, that’s betrayal! Imagine, I hide that from you and you stay in a relationship with that person” she exclaimed.
Anna shouted: “That’s cheating!”
To which Yewande admitted: “I would cut you off straight away!”
“I can’t believe there are people who just don’t say,” Anna added.
“That’s absolutely a big rule in the girl code book - tell your friend if their guy hits on you, even if he tells you something really flirty. I’d tell you straight,” Yewande conceded.
Finally, Anna chirped in: “I keep saying men are trash, no one ever understands.”
That’s the reality check we needed.
In the rest of the episode the trio respond to listener questions exploring one-sided friendships, feeling insecure and competitive in relation to your female friends, and if it’s ever ok to date, or even be friends with, a friend’s ex.
