10 Things Only Women With Lots Of Guys Friends Understand

I am not sleeping with all of them (or any of them) so please stop.

10 Things Only Women With Lots Of Guys Friends Understand
New Girl

This is something almost every girl with lots of guy friends will understand and agree with. The constant questioning if you're sleeping with all of them or if you're a lesbian is the unreal double-standard that we go through, so it's time to talk about it.

1. "Is she like sleeping with all of them?"

The fact that women can't be friends with lots of guys and just be friends is the first issue. Yes I am friends with lots of guys, but that doesn't mean I am sleeping with all of them, or let alone, any of them.

2. Going out with them and every other guy thinking that one of them is your boyfriend.

I AM SINGLE. Just because I am going out with my guy friends doesn't mean I am dating them. Come on people...really?

3. When they talk to you about a girl...like you're not a girl.

I understand more than you think. 😊

4. When one of their girlfriend's looks at you like you're her worst enemy even though you've never spoken to each other.

Sorry honey but your boyfriend can have friends who are girls. It means nothing. Please get off your high horse and actually talk to the friend because I can trust you that once you get to know her, she could be completely different than how you imagined.

5. When you go through a breakup and their reaction is "screw him".

Thanks guys but this doesn't necessarily help...but the effort counts.

6. When you're really sure one of your guy friends likes you and you don't feel the same way.

Please don't tell me you're feelings for me at the worst possible moment and ruining my life.

7. Turning to them for guy advice and their advice hurts more than you thought.

So he's just not into me and I should stop talking to him? Okay well I mean I was only talking to him for five months.

8. Trying to talk to them about something sexual is like trying to talk to a family member about something sexual.

This is just never going to work...ever.

9. When your girlfriends start asking why you haven't hung out with them recently.

Honestly, I get along with guys so much easier than girls and they're easier to hangout with but nothing compares to girl time.

10. Having to constantly explain yourself to other people.

At the end of the day, this isn't even worth it.

So to the girls who can relate to this, don't care about what other people think! Be friends with whoever you want to be friends with because life is too short not to.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.
