I am a lot to handle. Sometimes I get anxiety thinking about the fact that I have to put up with myself for the rest of my life. Like, it's a hard job. I don't understand why another person would choose to handle me on their free will. So this one is dedicated to all the boyfriends who go without recognition for putting up with all the things that girls do. Here're 27 things you should thank your boyfriend for more often.

1. Taking you out on dates.

2. Paying for those dates.

3. Listening to and acting interested when you rant about someone who made you mad or how much you hate Karen.

4. Cheering you up when you're in a bad mood.

5. Telling you that you're beautiful even though you haven't washed your hair in two days.

6. For not hating you after you promise you'll only be in Target for five minutes and it turns into two hours.

7. For going shopping with you and attempting to give an opinion on the things you try on. (Even if he says you look pretty in everything you try on in an attempt to leave sooner).

8. For putting up when you cry over anything. A cute puppy video? Cry. When he remembers your order at McDonald's? Cry.

9. For not hating you for always wanting attention.

10. For keeping calm when he asks you what you want for dinner and you say 'I don't care' then shoot down all of his suggestions.

11. Playing with your hair.

12. Keeping calm when your hair gets everywhere in his house.

13. Watching sappy love movies with you.

14. Listening to you when you when you show him all the pictures of #relationshipgoals you see on Twitter.

15. For not thinking you're gross when you don't shave for a week straight. Or not saying it if he thinks it.

16. For saying no when you ask if a girl is prettier than you.

17. For obliging with your tremendous need to cuddle.

18. Watching your favorite Netflix series with you even if he hates it.

19. Waiting to start a new episode of a show just to watch it with you.



20. For being your biggest support system.

21. For taking 20 different pictures because the first 19 weren't "Insta-worthy."



22. For understanding when you take forever to get ready.

23. For getting along with your friends and their boyfriends.

24. For not judging when you eat more than him.

25. For getting along with and enjoying your family.

26. For making you feel perfect when you know you aren't.

27. For making, you wonder how you lived your entire life without him.

No matter how much we complain, we actually do appreciate all the things you do for us and put up with.

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it

Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

To The Friend I Rarely See Anymore

I wish you nothing but the best.

When we graduated high school, we thought it was the end for us. The distance would ruin us and we wouldn't be able to call ourselves friends. Thankfully, you were my rock for the first year of school. You were the one I turned to when the adjustment was hard or when I needed someone to talk to and just listen. We never lost our connection for a whole year. We proved that nothing could pull us apart no matter how far the distance, no matter the different schedules. We were still best friends.

Another summer came and we only got stronger. We went on countless beach trips, late night hangouts, and Starbucks runs. I didn't even think it was possible to be this much closer to you than we already were. If we weren't together, we would Snapchat or text to never stop the conversation.

Now summer ended, we didn't think twice about losing our connection this time. We had a bond stronger than anyone could fathom. We once again went our separate ways and kept our texting and Snapchat habits.

But something changed.

It must've been the comfort level of sophomore year. It must've been all the new friends we got. It must have been the boys who entered our lives. We don't speak anymore. I haven't seen you since winter break. I haven't texted you since New Year's Eve. Our connection, one that was once thought to be indestructible, came crumbling down with sophomore year. I am not going to lie, sophomore year was the best of my life, but I knew you were missing the whole time. It wasn't the same without you.

I'm not upset you chose to focus your time and life on your new boyfriend. I am happy for you. I am not upset you spend more time with your school friends. I am happy for you. I am not upset you don't text me anymore and killed our streak. I know you're living a happy life. And I am too.

We may have gone our separate ways like we never imagined, but I am happy you are finally happy. Don't forget for one second that I will always be here for you. I will still always answer your text. I will still always be your shoulder to cry on even when no one else is there for you. I wish you nothing but the best, and I hope you're doing ok.
