Women's ancestors did relationship-building with other women in the tribe or community to ensure survival and protection. During the past millions of years, women's ancestors lived in a hostile and dangerous environment. Daily life was filled with many dangers, and life was often short. Women with many close female friendships survived best. Good relationship-building skills were valuable survival traits.
Women today still use some of the same million-year-old behaviors of their female ancestors. The behaviors are in women's DNA. One of the traits still present is a natural skill for building close friendships with many other women. It happens easily and naturally with women in all cultures. It is in their DNA as instinctive as breathing.
Relationship building with other women comes easily for women today. DNA still in women today makes relationship-building a natural daily activity wherever possible.
Relationships have not been important to men for their survival for millions of generations. Instead, men have evolved to be competitive and combative in order to survive.
