5 Ways Having A Boyfriend Is Like Having A Dog

Dogs have often been called man's best friend, but how similar are they to men? Well as many women can tell you there are a lot of similarities. This may explain why adopting a new puppy is very similar to dating a new man.

1. They are always happy to see you!

No matter how long you are gone or how the day has been, boyfriends are always excited just to see you again. Sometimes they just can't hide it either as they run up to you to give you a kiss and shower you with affection.

2. You just cannot seem to keep them off of you.

Just as dogs enjoy humping the legs of their humans, boyfriends can be similar with their girlfriends. Only boyfriends don't always want to limit it to leg humping.

3. They are never really sure why you are mad.

In many cases a upset woman may express her displeasure with a boyfriend only to be given a blank, clueless stare. And afterwards no matter how mad the girl may be, the boyfriend still loves them unconditionally.

4. Boyfriends will eat whatever you put in front of them.

Really for most men, there is not much they don't like to eat. Also, good luck making something for yourself without them trying to steal a bite. Or two. Or half the plate.

5. They will love those who are good to them unconditionally.

Dogs and men are both incredibly loyal and forgiving. A guy will always seem to get along with his friends no matter how rude they are to each other. Therefore, even if a woman snaps or is angry with her boyfriend, he always seems to be quick to forgive her. And is super excited when she has calmed down enough to see him again.

Since dogs are men's best friend, it only makes sense that a boyfriend fills this role for a woman. So don't be surprised the next time your boyfriend wants to cuddle and tries to act like a puppy with a new toy.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
