Welcome to our new feature here at Swaay The Gal Guide, your ultimate destination for everything female founded or designed. We’ve handpicked our favorite products from female entrepreneurs and over the coming months will introduce you to them in themed bi-weekly segments.
We’re celebrating innovation and intellectual femininity while also highlighting just how cool these products are and how these entrepreneurs have managed to tap into a niche market. Our gal guide will recognise an effeminate tenacity and drive that has gone unnoticed and under appreciated for decades, and hopes to highlight the merits of the entrepreneurial story as well as the product itself!
We hope you enjoy![fa_slider id="6909" singular="false" title="" show_title="" width="1200" height="620" font_size="90" full_width="" top="10" bottom="10" show_slide_title="1" show_content="1" show_date="" show_read_more="" show_play_video="" img_click="" auto_slide=""]

Help! My Friend Is a No Show
Dear Armchair Psychologist,
I have a friend who doesn't reply to my messages about meeting for dinner, etc. Although, last week I ran into her at a local restaurant of mine, it has always been awkward to be friends with her. Should I continue our friendship or discontinue it? We've been friends for a total four years and nothing has changed. I don't feel as comfortable with her as my other close friends, and I don't think I'll ever be able to reach that comfort zone in pure friendship.
Dear Sadsies,I am sorry to hear you've been neglected by your friend. You may already have the answer to your question, since you're evaluating the non-existing bond between yourself and your friend. However, I'll gladly affirm to you that a friendship that isn't reciprocated is not a good friendship.
I have had a similar situation with a friend whom I'd grown up with but who was also consistently a very negative person, a true Debby Downer. One day, I just had enough of her criticism and vitriol. I stopped making excuses for her and dumped her. It was a great decision and I haven't looked back. With that in mind, it could be possible that something has changed in your friend's life, but it's insignificant if she isn't responding to you. It's time to dump her and spend your energy where it's appreciated. Don't dwell on this friend. History is not enough to create a lasting bond, it only means just that—you and your friend have history—so let her be history!
