21 Things You Should Know Before Dating A Stubborn Girl

Oh, stubbornness. Personally, when I think of the word stubborn, I think of Blair Waldorf herself. However, that's because she is my spirit animal, but then again, that's besides the point.

Being stubborn is a curse and a blessing. Especially when it comes to relationships. If you're lucky like I am and dating someone who puts up with you and your stubbornness, then you've found a good one. However, if you haven't met that one yet, that's okay too. Either way, if you are stubborn, I'm sure you can relate to what I'm about to say. So without further ado, here are 21 things you should know before dating a stubborn girl. Everyone, listen up.

1. It's hard for us to apologize, because we apologize too much.

If we're sorry, we're really sorry. In fact, we will continue to apologize until we convince ourselves that we are sorry about being sorry.

2. We don't take compliments well.

Unfortunately, it is very hard for us to accept compliments. Whether it's from our significant other or family member or friend, it's difficult for us to just say thank you and smile. This is not because we don't appreciate it, but because we don't know how to react. Oh, you think I look beautiful today? Let me just put myself down real quickly.

3. If we're in a bad mood, stay clear.

This is an annoying habit we have. If we're in a bad mood, we stay in it. This isn't because we want to, mainly it's because getting out of a funk when you're a stubborn person is like pulling teeth. We appreciate that you try to cheer us up, we really do, but don't feel bad if it doesn't work.

4. We're too considerate.

We tend to have a problem with being too considerate, mainly because we don't like to let people down. Sometimes we just need to be told what we're doing or what the plan is, not plan it.

5. It's hard for us to take constructive criticism.

Constructive or not, we have an issue with hearing when we should do something a little bit differently. Stubborn girls are very defensive, and we don't like any negative comments, whether they're meant to be negative or not.

6. We put all of our emotions into everything.

When dating a stubborn girl, you can expect that when we feel a certain way, we feel it completely. If we love, we love hard, and we tend to get fully invested in anything we're passionate about.

7. We don't like to get taken care of after a night of drinking.

Honestly, we would much rather babysit someone else than be babysat ourselves. We pride ourselves on being independent when we drink, and we get super embarrassed if we act like we aren't.

8. We get easily frustrated.

Being stubborn means wanting perfection, and when something doesn't turn out the way we wanted, such as a project or paper, we like to redo it and start over. To add, we get more frustrated with ourselves than with others.

9. We're fiercely loyal.

Something you never have to worry about when dating us is that we pride ourselves on being loyal to you and the ones we care about. We love to stick by your side, and love to make you feel like you are one of the most important persons in our lives. Needless to say, if you're with us, you can expect us to stick around and be there.

10. We're very supportive.

We love to support you in every aspect of your life, the good and the bad. We want to be there for you when you get that promotion or interview, and we want to be there when you're having a rough day. Something about us is that we love to let you know that no matter what, your goals are as important to us as they are to you.

11. We're not pushovers.

Something you should know about dating a stubborn girl is that we don't always back down easily, and we don't like getting pushed around. Don't mess with our emotions, we won't put up with it.

12. ...But we're passive.

While we're stubborn, we don't like conflict. In fact, we will avoid it as much as we can.

13. We curse a lot.

Don't ask why -- I wish I could tell you why. Habits can be hard to break.

14. We like routines.

School. Gym. Homework. It's an actual thing. Whatever our routine may be, we love to have one.

15. ...But we're laid-back.

There's nothing we enjoy more than comfy blankets and a good movie with you. We take Drake's lyrics of sweatpants and no makeup to a whole new level.

16. We worry too much.

This is true, and trust us, it's as annoying to us as it is to you. We wish we could tell you why we worry so much, but unfortunately it's a thing.

17. If we're with you, it's because we want to be.

Something about dating us is that if we're with you, it's because we see ourselves with you and see a future with you. This is a good thing, trust me. Stubborn girls do what they want to do, and if we want to date you, you're a keeper.

18. We love to make you smile and laugh.

We're stubborn -- we will try to make you smile and laugh as much as it takes. Seeing you happy makes us happy.

19. We're competitive.

Maybe we're a bit too competitive at times, but we like being good at something (and winning).

20. We love when you show that you care.

Showing us that you care makes us feel and know that we're your priority. Time spent with you is our main love language, after all.

21. All in all, we're the best kind of girls you'll ever date.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
