10 Reasons Why Dogs Are A Woman's Best Friend

They say "dogs are a man's best friend," but I beg to differ.

10 Reasons Why Dogs Are A Woman's Best Friend

The saying goes that "Dogs are a man's best friend," but I disagree. They also say that "Diamonds are a girl's best friend," but I'd rather have 10 dogs over 10 diamonds any day.

I'm pretty sure we can all agree that dogs are just as easily a woman's best friend, if not more. Women, by nature, are more nurturing and more compassionate; two qualities which are necessary for every dog owner. Since when did dogs become associated with masculinity? Dogs are loyal, fun-loving, energetic companions and all of those are traits which both men and women possess. Here are ten reasons why dogs are in fact a woman's best friend as well:

1. They are always there to greet you.

When you first walk through the door, your dog is the first to greet you. they jump on you and wag their tail as if you have just been away at sea for seven years. Even if you just went to the grocery store and back they will greet you as if they have missed you like crazy. No one else is going to greet you like that.

2. They don't judge you.

They will watch you eat that fourth slice of pizza. They will watch you pretend to be Mariah Carey when you're home alone. And they'll sit there as you click next on Netflix to round out an entire season in one day. All of this, they'll do without judgement.

3. They make for the perfect date.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F15%2F635962890103692219-594383779_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=1017&h=c2c1ae5bcad479b2552637b61491c19615318c2276739edd5c4b30def25fc033&size=980x&c=1928363072 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F15%252F635962890103692219-594383779_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D1017%26h%3Dc2c1ae5bcad479b2552637b61491c19615318c2276739edd5c4b30def25fc033%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1928363072%22%7D" expand=1]

No one to eat with? Your dog will join you. No one to watch TV with? Your dog will join you. No one to go to the park with? Your dog will join you.

4. They have the same taste in food as you.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F15%2F6359628905759102901067343709_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=714&h=8107b1a72d3064bd1bf142ad42f7ec2e3cadf4f928141e516435b5d5e13e1281&size=980x&c=594723355 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F15%252F6359628905759102901067343709_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D714%26h%3D8107b1a72d3064bd1bf142ad42f7ec2e3cadf4f928141e516435b5d5e13e1281%26size%3D980x%26c%3D594723355%22%7D" expand=1]

By same taste in food I mean anything that falls off the table.

5. They will make you feel better when you're sad.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F15%2F635963384364520089676447714_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=193&h=c85e4af2225adced5c96a3a95cb39e9047cd78ae572e68322c99b8e09eda08d5&size=980x&c=2768928305 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F15%252F635963384364520089676447714_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D193%26h%3Dc85e4af2225adced5c96a3a95cb39e9047cd78ae572e68322c99b8e09eda08d5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2768928305%22%7D" expand=1]

Dogs know when you're feeling sad and they are the perfect companion to cheer you up.

6. They're always down to have fun.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F15%2F635963388757600356-282930179_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=1011&h=248ae2118026443362f5c3800068add1700f277eb3bb6911b757681fde6c2381&size=980x&c=3368478834 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F15%252F635963388757600356-282930179_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D1011%26h%3D248ae2118026443362f5c3800068add1700f277eb3bb6911b757681fde6c2381%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3368478834%22%7D" expand=1]

Your dog is always willing to play fetch, go to the park, or wrestle with you. Whatever it may be, they are always willing to have fun.

7. They are (sometimes) willing to cuddle.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F15%2F6359635672414756641682012218_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=163&h=aa9dc979c0ef4c52655eb1548fc3e2ab3f8211007b77b241bd7ee16406e3aa82&size=980x&c=4182328133 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F15%252F6359635672414756641682012218_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D163%26h%3Daa9dc979c0ef4c52655eb1548fc3e2ab3f8211007b77b241bd7ee16406e3aa82%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4182328133%22%7D" expand=1]

Your dog will cuddle with you one minute and lay its head across your legs and the next it will run out of your embrace when you show affection. Either way, some cuddling is better than none at all, right?

8. They will defend you.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F15%2F635963564508263035-96697192_bs0GWk.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=111&h=c90b1f17d7d52b161d622d748a5f07756631a5472c684d78006b44488efe883a&size=980x&c=825415370 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F15%252F635963564508263035-96697192_bs0GWk.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D111%26h%3Dc90b1f17d7d52b161d622d748a5f07756631a5472c684d78006b44488efe883a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D825415370%22%7D" expand=1]

Your dog will bark at anyone or anything that seems like a threat. Some dogs are better watch dogs than others though, let's be honest.

9. They'll help you clean up.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F15%2F635963566036652806913236729_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=776&h=6ab11814aa4f084ee1399a3b0c054e33c0d6aff2bf037b6d14158baf108ac007&size=980x&c=4204100085 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F15%252F635963566036652806913236729_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D776%26h%3D6ab11814aa4f084ee1399a3b0c054e33c0d6aff2bf037b6d14158baf108ac007%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4204100085%22%7D" expand=1]

Dropped some food on the floor? Your dog will help you. Need some help clearing your plate before you wash it? Your dog has got your back. Don't act like you've never done these things before.

10. They love you no matter what.

The best thing a dog is good for is loving you unconditionally. No matter what happens, your dog will always be there for you. Some people are not even as loyal as your dog. That's why a dog is easily a girl's best friend.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
