Lia sat down with Editor in Chief Andrene Nicole and she placed her on the spot by playing a game called “Girl Code.” Lia had to tell the truth about how she would respond if her girlfriends placed her in certain scenarios. Let’s just say Lia could be the general of enforcing girl code.
You are out with your girlfriend and she gets into an argument with another girl in the club. Your girlfriend is wrong but wants to fight. Do you jump in and fight with her or do you fall back because it’s not your fight?
I’m jumping in and fighting with my girlfriend and then I’ll be scolding her when we get back to the crib. Like chick don’t put me in that situation, but we dragging.
You are single and on a dating app looking for a potential date. You come across one of your friend’s boyfriend’s profile picture on the app. Do you tell her or mind your business?
I am sending it to my girlfriend ASAP. Screenshot and send it to my girlfriend. I might even slide into the DM’s to see how he’s getting down and send it to her.
Your girlfriend approaches you and tells you that she wants to date a guy that you only went out on a few dates with but it never got serious. How do you handle it?
I would tell her that I don’t approve but it is totally up to her. The fact that she came to me, means she respects my opinion and just because I don’t approve doesn’t me she doesn’t have to do it. You never know, they could be together and years down the line they get married. He wasn’t for me but he could be for her.
