Our story: You know that ‘lost’ feeling we women have when a friend is hurting and/or in need? Well, that’s where Girlfriendology all started. Back in 2005, two great girlfriends of Debba Haupert found out they had cancer. All she wanted to do was spend time with them and other girlfriends. She wanted to learn how to be a better friend to them and the other amazing women who blessed her life.
After a little research (The Tending Instinct, by Shelley E. Taylor and other studies), Debba found that female friendship makes women healthier, happier, less stressed, live longer and feel more beautiful.
Wow! That’s a lot of benefits for women who often are stressed and don’t get a lot of inspiration to build into those female friendships that impact our lives in such a wonderful, positive way. So, Girlfriendology was born – as a website and community of women to inspire and support each other, to encourage women to appreciate and celebrate girlfriends, and to be the kind of friend we’d love to have.
Women ‘get it.‘ We need our girlfriends. Best friends, sisters, neighbors, coworkers… we‘re blessed with wonderful women who inspire, admire and care for us. They bring us joy, love, laughter and wonderful memories. Female friendships make women healthier, happier, less stressed, live longer and feel more beautiful.
“Inspiration, Appreciation and Celebration of Girlfriends” is the goal of Girlfriendology. We promote and encourage strong, supportive female friendships. We want to help you be a better friend. We encourage women to support women. And, we‘d like to inspire you to spend more time with your female friends, to share more with each other and to appreciate the great gift of female friendship.

Debba Haupert* started Girlfriendology in January 2006 in response to being so blessed with great girlfriends. Through research and reading, she learned that this need for girlfriends was biological. Women have a true need to have community with each other. In fact, in the book “The Tending Instinct” by Shelley Taylor, it is shown how we ‘tend and befriend‘ as a natural part of our DNA.
Together we can make the world a better place – one friendship at a time.
So join us at Girlfriendology as we continue to grow friendships and ‘do life‘ together. Please pass along this site to your girlfriends and be sure to share your stories, ideas and comments on the wonderful value of female friendships.
