4. They Will Make You Cry From Laughing
You know how wonderful it is when you see a group of women at the beach - romance novels in their totes, spritzers in their hands - and they're just belly laughing as kids run around and families build castles around them? Or how about when you walk into a restaurant and there's a group of ladies laughing so hard they're wiping their eyes and reaching for their cocktails simultaneously?

It's an amazing scene and makes your lips quirk in a smile almost instantly. That is exactly why you need girlfriends - no one else can make you laugh like that.
