18 Signs Your Best Friend Is Basically Your Boyfriend

18 Signs Your Best Friend Is Basically Your Boyfriend

Having a BFF is better than having a BF anyway.

Your best friend, your go-to, your day one. When you're a single girl, your best friend is the one you rely on for most boyfriend-like activities. You spend all your time together — almost to the point where it annoys other people. There's nothing you wouldn't do for each other. If one of you were a boy, chances are, you would already be married. Here are 18 signs your best friend is basically your boyfriend.

1. She's the first person you text when anything happens.

See a cutie on campus? Get a free T-shirt? She's the first person you tell about anything exciting that happens to you, and even if it's super menial, chances are she'll be just as excited about it as you are.

2. You consult her before making any life decisions.

There's not a chance in hell you're sending that text without her approval.

3. You're always on each others' side.

Whether you're battling with your mom or one of your friends, she has your back and listens to your venting. Even if you're being dramatic and it's over something stupid, she'll support you, and you do the same for her.

4. You bicker about dumb stuff.

Like an old married couple.

5. But you can never say mad at each other.

She might do something to piss you off, but it never lasts more than a day. Something hilarious is bound to happen that you absolutely have to tell her about.

6. You buy each other meals.

Or really just alternate who buys the pizza.

7. You get jealous when a boy takes up too much of her time.

You get just as excited as she does when she gets asked on a date, but watching "Bob's Burgers" on a Thursday night seems much less pathetic when you're in it together.

8. If you don't live with her already, you have plans to live with her.

Because there's nothing better than living with your best friend.

9. You keep each other in check.

You call each other out when necessary, and keep each other sane. When you go out together, you know she's not going to let you do anything too reckless (unless she's being reckless with you).

10. She knows you better than pretty much anyone else.

She knows exactly what Instagrams will make you laugh and which boys have made you cry.

11. She's always there to rescue you and give you rides.

You don't have to worry about being stranded, because she's always willing to help a sister out.

12. You have more pictures of her on your phone than anyone else.

Between all the Snapchats and photo ops, all your cutest pics are with her.

13. There are no secrets and no judgments.

No matter what you do or say, she won't judge you. She's much more likely to just laugh at you.

14. What's yours is hers.

Clothes, food, and especially that one necklace that simply goes with everything.

16. People automatically associate you with one another.

If someone can't find you, she's the first person they ask where you are. Your location is constantly shared with her too, so she'll definitely be able to tell them.

17. You know her iPhone password.

And you know she texted that one boy she's not supposed to.

18. You Snapchat and text all the time.

Even when you're sitting right next to each other. She never judges your ugly double chin potato snaps.

To The Girl Struggling With Her Body Image

It's not about the size of your jeans, but the size of your heart, soul, and spirit.


To the girl struggling with her body image,

You are more than the number on the scale. You are more than the number on your jeans and dresses. You are way more than the number of pounds you've gained or lost in whatever amount of time.

Weight is defined as the quantity of matter contained by a body or object. Weight does not define your self-worth, ambition or potential.

So many girls strive for validation through the various numbers associated with body image and it's really so sad seeing such beautiful, incredible women become discouraged over a few numbers that don't measure anything of true significance.

Yes, it is important to live a healthy lifestyle. Yes, it is important to take care of yourself. However, taking care of yourself includes your mental health as well. Neglecting either your mental or physical health will inflict problems on the other. It's very easy to get caught up in the idea that you're too heavy or too thin, which results in you possibly mistreating your body in some way.

Your body is your special, beautiful temple. It harbors all of your thoughts, feelings, characteristics, and ideas. Without it, you wouldn't be you. If you so wish to change it in a healthy way, then, by all means, go ahead. With that being said, don't make changes to impress or please someone else. You are the only person who is in charge of your body. No one else has the right to tell you whether or not your body is good enough. If you don't satisfy their standards, then you don't need that sort of negative influence in your life. That sort of manipulation and control is extremely unhealthy in its own regard.

Do not hold back on things you love or want to do because of how you interpret your body. You are enough. You are more than enough. You are more than your exterior. You are your inner being, your spirit. A smile and confidence are the most beautiful things you can wear.

It's not about the size of your jeans. It's about the size of your mind and heart. Embrace your body, observe and adore every curve, bone and stretch mark. Wear what makes you feel happy and comfortable in your own skin. Do your hair and makeup (or don't do either) to your heart's desire. Wear the crop top you've been eyeing up in that store window. Want a bikini body? Put a bikini on your body, simple.

So, as hard as it may seem sometimes, understand that the number on the scale doesn't measure the amount or significance of your contributions to this world. Just because that dress doesn't fit you like you had hoped doesn't mean that you're any less of a person.

Love your body, and your body will love you right back.

Dear Fellas, Consistency & Communication Is All We Ask For

So, why aren't we getting the same?


Dear fellas (who fall under this category of course),

As you can tell from my title, it's time to talk about the problems with MOST guys in today's generation. This article isn't meant to bash all of you, but most of you need a reality check when it comes to. I'll start with this:

It's really annoying when most of you guys start a good conversation with us and then it eventually dies out because you lose interest in us. You even label things as "the talking stage," which to this day, I still don't understand the purpose of that. You come in our messages and go for long periods of time, only to message us weeks later like nothing happened. The excuses are tiring and pathetic, yet you claim that you care and you were just busy with work/school.

What I do know, is that if you actually cared about someone, you would be invested in that person and not disappear. We shouldn't always have to be the ones to triple text and make an effort. Once we find our self-worth, its hard to settle for less at this point. If you don't feel the same way, please communicate with us and let us know. There's one thing people hate and that's wasting precious time. If you do "like us," be consistent. We don't appreciate the half-of-everything type.

Life is short and it's time to grow up.

Also, notice how I keep saying "most" of you guys. However, if you feel offended by this article, it's probably you who needs to change.

Thank you for coming to my unofficial TED Talk!
