11 Types of Girls In Relationships

Not every girl fits into one of these categories, but there's a good chance you know at these a few of these girls.

11 Types of Girls In Relationships
Jessica Johnston

All women have a personal flair that make them unique in their own way. However, when a man comes into the picture, I find that women take on the "girlfriend" role in only 11 particular ways.

1. The helicopter girlfriend

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F07%2F636061323692400934802524074_200-1.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=466&h=4d13efe897cb696e47c0fce0b27ca66696a14557890299cfcc42352ea73555a7&size=980x&c=2507910782 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F07%252F636061323692400934802524074_200-1.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D466%26h%3D4d13efe897cb696e47c0fce0b27ca66696a14557890299cfcc42352ea73555a7%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2507910782%22%7D" expand=1]

This girl has two planners, one for everything she has going on, and a second for the detailed life of everywhere her boyfriend will be at all times when he’s not with her. Which, unfortunately for him, isn’t very often.

2. The “don’t you have a boyfriend” girlfriend

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F07%2F636061324381751649-261356367_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=598&h=737a756066f06d50610d254e8279c6288b26e53850bb893a60f3dddce974af47&size=980x&c=1848904768 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F07%252F636061324381751649-261356367_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D598%26h%3D737a756066f06d50610d254e8279c6288b26e53850bb893a60f3dddce974af47%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1848904768%22%7D" expand=1]

This girl is cool and flirty and hot, the whole nine yards. But she’s flirty with every dude she meets, which is odd because we all thought that was her boyfriend over in the corner.

3. The emotional girlfriend

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F07%2F6360613256982413371334599125_giphy-1.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=349&h=b31b3c132df0be4aebc2bd46f92ae55f6f25cd082f7df7a5385822f2f1f24e4b&size=980x&c=3224612448 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F07%252F6360613256982413371334599125_giphy-1.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D349%26h%3Db31b3c132df0be4aebc2bd46f92ae55f6f25cd082f7df7a5385822f2f1f24e4b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3224612448%22%7D" expand=1]

This girl’s boyfriend is awful, just ask her. Everything he does just isn’t right, and so her go-to response is to cry about it. To each their own; if you’re a crier you just cry your little heart out. But, hunny, he just wants one night with “the guys” that isn’t code for “we should break up.”

4. The always in-love girlfriend

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F07%2F636061326526777865-799140213_200-2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=427&h=7dc581e92452c4243a8b3488ac4e6513eb3a827cbd1cd11e7e2caa7068bb9222&size=980x&c=4152941526 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F07%252F636061326526777865-799140213_200-2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D427%26h%3D7dc581e92452c4243a8b3488ac4e6513eb3a827cbd1cd11e7e2caa7068bb9222%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4152941526%22%7D" expand=1]

No, this girl has not been dating the same guy for five years. She’s had multiple boyfriends over the past few years, but ask her a week and a half into a relationship and she’ll inform you that this guy is definitely “the one.” But before you go off gauging yourself, the past seven guys have also been “the one” and she’s on boyfriend number eight.

5. The loyal girlfriend

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F07%2F6360613340030640872017876786_giphy-2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=120&h=439e90186f0a31e3a89954237e52dcfa8f17c5a19640b5b738dfa58ac3f16f68&size=980x&c=3516252662 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F07%252F6360613340030640872017876786_giphy-2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D120%26h%3D439e90186f0a31e3a89954237e52dcfa8f17c5a19640b5b738dfa58ac3f16f68%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3516252662%22%7D" expand=1]

This girl and her boyfriend are actual relationship goals. They’ve been dating for years and are still absolutely adorable. But they’re so comfortable with each other now that they pretty much have no boundaries of “is this OK to say” because she just burped in front of him and went up for a high five afterward. Clearly, they’re bound to be married in the next couple of years.

6. The obsessed girlfriend

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F07%2F636061334584139376806069998_200-3.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=232&h=9b6c11a258c0e3b9f0a240d9a7db218b37cab6f384cab9fb137522178239c9ec&size=980x&c=1524237722 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F07%252F636061334584139376806069998_200-3.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D232%26h%3D9b6c11a258c0e3b9f0a240d9a7db218b37cab6f384cab9fb137522178239c9ec%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1524237722%22%7D" expand=1]

You used to be friends with this girl until she started dating what’s-his-name. You still like her Insta pics of him, but the last time you talked to her was probably the day she started dating her boyfriend. To each there own, but girl, you need your friends, don’t you get a little tired of him after seeing him like 50-plus days in a row?

7. The invisible girlfriend

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F07%2F636061337543256048-834328766_giphy-3.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=893&h=d66639e9f48d7f566a3061e314d09ab7fab25dbc11033c00db6a341c9e84d6bc&size=980x&c=2713190486 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F07%252F636061337543256048-834328766_giphy-3.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D893%26h%3Dd66639e9f48d7f566a3061e314d09ab7fab25dbc11033c00db6a341c9e84d6bc%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2713190486%22%7D" expand=1]

You’re not really sure that this girl exists particularly because you’ve never met her. You’ve heard so much about her but she’s been dating your friend or brother or cousin for over six months now and you’ve never seen her in the flesh. He might just be paying the same girl to take random photos with him to post on Instagram.

8. The laid back girlfriend

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F07%2F6360613410916784811480275206_200-5.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=851&h=2328b4c696e59a92c8fb9f9afb2d929146e481a1dd6195445f66cb87cf7a88b2&size=980x&c=507437894 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F07%252F6360613410916784811480275206_200-5.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D851%26h%3D2328b4c696e59a92c8fb9f9afb2d929146e481a1dd6195445f66cb87cf7a88b2%26size%3D980x%26c%3D507437894%22%7D" expand=1]

This girl is pretty much the cooler hipster you’ve ever met and just goes with the flow. Yes, she likes her boyfriend very much, but they’re both still individuals with the mentality of “I’ll do me and you do you,” for the most part.

9. The “bro” girlfriend

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F07%2F636061339133406003436819324_200-4.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=732&h=c9564b0a9f92b00d2f5803799fbfff4c17659f377f5fea748abe278df491592f&size=980x&c=1975632999 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F07%252F636061339133406003436819324_200-4.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D732%26h%3Dc9564b0a9f92b00d2f5803799fbfff4c17659f377f5fea748abe278df491592f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1975632999%22%7D" expand=1]

This girl’s middle name is chill. She plays video games, isn’t afraid to get down and dirty and watches the game with “the boys,” not because she has to, but because she actually enjoys it. Her boyfriend’s friends love having her around and almost forget she’s dating Joe over here because they think of her as one of their own.

10. The “I have a boyfriend” girlfriend

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F07%2F636061319408608549-1958031781_200.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=361&h=e3ead2fd7e3fc04f86bd05c18dee3943bdb47f734234233d9296f9dd8966d8af&size=980x&c=2097549610 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F07%252F636061319408608549-1958031781_200.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D361%26h%3De3ead2fd7e3fc04f86bd05c18dee3943bdb47f734234233d9296f9dd8966d8af%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2097549610%22%7D" expand=1]

This girl is the exact opposite of the “bro” girlfriend. She has no chill whatsoever. She has a boyfriend and she needs to make sure you and everyone else knows it. “Hey this is my boyfriend,” “Have you met my boyfriend?” “I’m so happy he’s my boyfriend,” are all common phrases that come out of her mouth. Thus, every time she speaks you kind of just want to slap her with her own hand.

11. The never-single girlfriend

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F07%2F636061351395948650-47599105_200-6.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=710&h=f3fe9728f0e5f5a64b05e78f635d8ad0a9234988194e416ba472c145f5fbc257&size=980x&c=996756964 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F07%252F636061351395948650-47599105_200-6.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D710%26h%3Df3fe9728f0e5f5a64b05e78f635d8ad0a9234988194e416ba472c145f5fbc257%26size%3D980x%26c%3D996756964%22%7D" expand=1]

This girl is sweet and pretty and, oh look, she has a new boyfriend. She can’t be single for longer than a hiccup of a second and always has one guy ready to replace the next. You have to avoid calling them by their names because you’re bound to call him Greg and his name is Grant. Greg was three boyfriends ago, try and keep up.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
