5 Things Guys Do That We, As Girls, Will ALWAYS Overanalyze

3. Say the first thing that they think of.

5 Things Guys Do That We, As Girls, Will ALWAYS Overanalyze
The CW

As a female, it is hard for me to deny that at times we can blow things out of proportion. This is especially true when it comes to interactions with the male species. But as I am realizing these patterns I felt that it was important to keep girls aware of their behavior.

Arriving in college I figured that both genders would become more mature but I quickly found that this was not the case.

1. Instagram

Instagram is a social media outlet, not a place to make wedding arrangements. I am guilty of being genuinely hurt by someone not following me back on Instagram. That guy you have been working up the courage to request is truly not going to matter by next week I promise. Furthermore, in terms of likes on a picture, I am about to say something that you may disagree with me on. Instagram likes are just two taps on a screen you and that guy are not engaged; try messaging him!

2. Hang out with other girls.

As much of a crime as it might seem to be; guys have friends that are girls. Contrary to popular belief, often the two are not even thinking about becoming romantically involved. So, before you attack your significant other for simply talking to other girls try speaking to him about how it bothers you.

3. Say the first thing that they think of.

In case you haven't already noticed guys rarely think before they speak (no offense male species). So, crying over something that guy said to you in October of 2015 is not worth it. However, when he is adamant about something, he most likely means it.

4. Act flirty.

Recently I have noticed that girls take almost everything as flirting. A simple wave from across the room means more to females than a male will ever know. But, I have also come to realize that some guys are just naturally flirty. Every move that these boys make can seem like more than it is. But, I am here to tell you that sometimes when a guy says hello it is just a greeting.

5. Randomly cut ties.

When a boy stops talking to a girl, it is something that will remain on her mind. But, sometimes there is no meaning. In most cases, the guy could be busy or distracted by other things and it is totally unintentional. Sometimes we need to just realize that not everything revolves around us.

Now, before I end this article I would like to let everyone know that I am far from the guy expert. In fact, I have been single for about a year and a half now. But, everything in this article is brought to you by the opinions of my closest male friends. For all the ladies reading the article; the point is fries before guys.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
