10 Things That Happen When You're In a Long-Term Relationship With Your Best Friend

It's like dating a male version of me.

10 Things That Happen When You're In a Long-Term Relationship With Your Best Friend
Madison Harrison

When you are first in a relationship a lot of things happen. Personally, I used to worry about how I looked, smelled, acted etc. Everything had to be absolutely perfect or I feared that my man might go running for the hills. But when years started to pass, I started worrying about less and less. Here’s what happens when you’re in a long-term relationship with your best friend.

1) If I can’t show up in sweats and a t-shirt, I’m not going.

I know, I know. I need to look decent when I go out with my man. But it’s been a long day, and let’s be honest, who am I trying to impress?

2) Sometimes you forget that he’s not just one of the girls.

“Hey, can I borrow your hairbrush? You don’t have a hairbrush….”

3) He becomes confused when you’re actually wearing makeup.

After a while, wearing makeup just isn’t a priority anymore.

4) “You’ve got a booger in your nose.”

I used to be horrified to tell someone they had a booger in their nose. Or even worse, for someone to tell me I had a booger in MY nose.

5) They are your go to for EVERYTHING.

Even though bae may get annoyed with my constant complaining, running to him always makes everything worlds better.

6) You both can talk about the dumbest things for hours and never get bored.

“We have been talking about potential future pets for an hour now.”

7) You have the grossest habits but they don’t care. And neither do you.

The ritual “Ew” becomes slightly amusing instead of hurting your feelings.

8) Got gas?

Sorry bud, you signed up for this.

9) Hearing their voice makes your life a thousand times better.

Feeling sad? Have no fear, bae is here.

10) They will support you and be proud of you no matter what.

Even if you just committed the dumbest crime, they will be standing behind you screaming, “THAT’S MY BEST FRIEND!!!"

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn Playlists
King of Wallpapers

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?

Things to do in October.


Halloween is a fun holiday for everyone of all ages. There are so many fun things to do in the month of October before Halloween and the day of Halloween.

It gives everyone a chance to show what they love to do as well.
