15 Reasons It's Perfectly Acceptable To Think 'Country' Is Attractive, So Get Your Yee-Haw On

In today's vernacular, being a cowboy can be hot.

To begin, there are many different things that are widely considered to be attractive. However, everyone's preference is different. There should be no judgment. You can, however, personally disagree but your opinion is not fact and should not be treated as so.

That being said, country men and women are definitely attractive to some. I wouldn't say that I am very country but I for sure have an appreciation for it. Coming from a small Podunk little town in Texas I have seen my fair share of different country stereotypes. I have seen hick, redneck, southern, hillbilly, and straight up country. On a side note, to be clear, there is nothing wrong with any of these.

Recently, I was dragged into a conversation where another girl and I were verbally shut down for what we found attractive. To start, there is nothing wrong with finding something attractive within moral correctness.

To clarify, when I refer to the attractiveness of country I am talking about cowboy/ranch hand country. We're talking about southern country cowboys and not the kind of country with ridiculous amounts of jewels on the back of their jeans.

1. They are hard workin' and find pride in their work.

2. Momma raised them with manners.

Chivalry is certainly not dead. I honestly miss being around men who actually want to open the door for me.

3. They can certianly pull off the outside gruff look but also clean up really nice. 

They are well-groomed and typically smell pretty nice. Weird but true.

4. Church goin' and God lovin'. 

Enough Said.

6. Dates with a country southern men are typically very unique and memorable because of it.

5. Family oriented and respecftul of their elders and authority figures. 

I'm not gonna lie, respect for others is already attractive all on its own.

7. Animal lovin'. 

Must I say more?

8. A deep southern drawl and drawn out ma'ams, sirs, and mornin's are something I miss hearing.

9. Their jeans actually fit!!! 

No skinny jeans here!

10. Minding their P's and Q's.

11. Well built because of hard work. 

I'm not necessarily talking about weight, I'm talking about toned by working hard at what they do.

12. Most truly southern men I have met are fiercely loyal.

13. They understand the intricacies of giving and are extremely generous.

14. They really will eat almost anything you feed them. 

You can cook basically anything and it works.

15. Nice trucks and tractors (;

"Big Green Tractor" anyone?

To close, you can like who you like and you shouldn't have to worry about what other people say to you about it. If I want to only think Spaniards are attractive, then it's your prerogative. You do you boo, do not let others shut you down because of things that make up your individuality and in turn do not do it to others.

To The Guy Who Treated Me Like Crap

In many ways, I feel bad that you could never see how amazing I am.

Dear (insert guy's name here),

I’m sorry that I acted as your footstool for so long. You treated me terribly, and for some reason, I couldn’t see that. I only saw you as someone who liked me and wanted to be with me (at least, that’s what I thought). I was like a little puppy dog following you around, completely loving and loyal. I was always waiting for you to text me, posting Snapchat stories for the sole purpose of knowing you would see them and always hoping you would come around when I was out with my friends so I could show you off.

No matter how hard I wanted us to work out, I now realize it never would have.

You weren’t right for me because you treated me like I was your inferior. You were always talking to other girls, flirting with them, and treating me like a child. You were so selfish. Only doing what you wanted and coming around when you felt like it and taking advantage of me. You made me feel crazy when I got mad at you for all the little things. I was so caught up in you that I tried to ignore all of the signals right in front of me.

You just weren’t right for me.

I now know that the right guy for me is the one who respects me and chooses me over everyone else. The guy who never makes me feel insane for questioning something, the guy who understands when he’s done something wrong and can live with the consequences. You just simply couldn’t provide that for me. In many ways, I feel bad that you could never see how amazing I am.

While I may have been so upset when our relationship ended, it made me realize who I am and what I deserve. I deserve so much more than someone putting in 50 percent. I deserve an endless amount of respect and communication. Putting in your all for a relationship when they can’t do the same is not healthy and it’s childish. I hope someday you can find a girl that you can love infinitely but I take a lot of pride in knowing that girl won’t be me. I may be single for a really long time or I may find the one tomorrow, either way, I have so much hope that one day someone can give me their all and make me feel incredible.

For now, I’m done wasting my time on guys like you who make me feel miserable.

Sincerely,
The One Who Got Away

5 Signs Your Boyfriend Might Be A Dirty Rotten Cheater

Now that we have Valentine's Day behind us, I finally feel comfortable bursting your precious love bubble and giving you the real tea on how all of those things you're questioning about your boyfriend are probably just signs he's cheating on you.

I just spent the last week with my jaw on the floor after the discovery that my best friend spent the better part of 2 years with a guy who was actually cheating ( a lot ) basically the entire length of their relationship. And now that we have Valentine's Day behind us, I finally feel comfortable bursting your precious love bubble and giving you the real tea on how all of those things you're questioning about your boyfriend are probably just signs he's cheating on you. If you encounter any of the following 5 signs, then girl you better get the hell outta dodge.

1. You NEVER get the invite to family gatherings.

Holidays

Brunch with the fam? He's not calling you. Christmas Eve at Aunt Sheryl's? He's not calling you. His sister's birthday party? He's definitely not calling you. It may not seem like a big deal at first, but if he has met your mom, your dad, and your cousins and still isn't inviting you to come along, it's probably because he doesn't want his mom to get confused that he had a totally different girl over last week.

2. He can't stand you being anywhere near his phone.

Cheater's Phone

I would think this one is an obvious red flag, but you'd be surprised how many people believe guys who say they just want you to "respect their privacy." If he is constantly texting, snapping and shoving his phone into his pocket immediately after hitting that lock screen, you may very well be in for a world of hurt. If it's going off at 2 AM, well girl, I shouldn't have to say more to convince you he's cheating.

3. You rarely go out in public.

Dating

I know, I know, he's told you a hundred times that he's just a homebody and would rather be snuggled up watching "Catfish" with you than going out anywhere, but that's probably because he is just scared you guys will run into his other girlfriend. If you do end up going out, it's always out of town or something loud and crowded like a concert where you guys would be hard to spot.

4. He NEVER wants to post about you two on social media.

Cell Phone

He says stuff like "Oh, I just don't feel the need to publicize our love." or maybe "I have a crazy ex and I don't want her to harass you online." Those are both actually just lies. What he really wants to say is "I just don't want evidence and time stamps of our relationship in case I get caught." The best is when they tell you about how they like girls who are off the grid. Sounds like a cheater to me...

5. He's constantly accusing you of cheating.

Accusing

Most girls I know will chalk this up to him just being a jealous guy. But let me tell you something honey, nothing makes you more paranoid than a guilty conscious. If every time you two argue, it divulges into him saying he's not sure if he can trust you or that you have too many guy friends or that he wonders what you're doing on nights without him, well he's probably just manifesting his own fears.

There are no promises here that he is definitely cheating, and if you really trust your man then more power to you. But if any of these signs had you thinking about your own relationship, then I highly recommend that you move on to the next one girl. There are plenty of other fish in the sea, even fish who won't cheat on you!
