8 Reasons Why Your Best Friend Is YOUR Best Friend
Victoria Renfroe

Whether you met your best friend the day you were born or last month, they mean the absolute world to you. No one can replace. No one can compare. No one can ever, ever come close.

1. They will always listen to you whine and complain over that one thing that never goes right.

We've all been here. It's the —

"But I miss him!"

"Why? I hate him!"

— conversation. They only hate them because they hurt you. Regardless of their own opinion, they will always be the one to listen to your problems every single time. They care more than they can show you.

2. They tell it like it is.

I know I've had countless conversations with my best friend that ended up in some serious tough love. Your best friend isn't worried so much about how they say it, but what they say. If you need to hear the truth, they will tell you. They won't hide anything from you. There is absolutely nothing that goes unsaid.

3. They fit into your family like family.

They show up at your house when you aren't even there. They sit and talk to your mom for hours after you've gone to work. You start to think if your family likes them better than they like you. Let's be honest, they do sometimes. Who couldn't adore that one person who's always there for you?

4. They would do absolutely anything for you. Anything.

They will punch that ex in the face and bring you ice cream afterward. They'll drive you around for a week when your car messes up. They'll buy you dinner when you leave your wallet at home and not make you pay them back.

5. Your favorite memories always include them.

You're always laughing. You're constantly being spontaneous. You just can not help but make some insane memories when you're with each other. From road trips to late-night adventures, they are always your partner-in-crime.

6. They always want what's best for you.

This one ties into the tough love topic. They are your outside eyes of every situation and will never let you make that wrong decision — if they can help it. When they can't help it, because you are just way too stubborn...

7. ...they will always be there to pick up the pieces.

They can not control you no matter how hard they try, and they know that. When you do end up hurt, sad, disappointing, they will always be there for you. They are your shoulder to cry on and source of happiness.

8. They love you unconditionally.

... And they'll never let you doubt it.

The First 2020 Presidential Debate Was 90 Minutes Of Pure, Unfiltered Garbage

There are a lot of words that I could use to describe my reactions even after a little less than 14 hours of being able to process what I saw unfold last night from Case Western Reserve University in Ohio. Informed — or even entertained — was far from one of them.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.

8692

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.

I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.
