10 Weird Things Girls Do

SSB can occur almost anywhere, and it's all good when it does - as long as no one (the opposite sex in particular) see's it happening. Perhaps it strike's when you're in the car and accidentally (on purpose) pick your nose in peak hour traffic, or when you hop out of the shower and realise you'd only shaved one leg - but don't bother hopping back in to fix it. Whatever it may be, just know there are other girls out there doing just as weird things as you, if not weirder.

Below we've listed our top 10 Weird Things Girls Do When They Are Alone.
