Being in a three-person friend group has its pros and cons. Though it might be a little hard at times, there are parts of it that make it totally worth it. If you're in a three-person friend group, I understand your struggles and I'm here to point them out!

1. Someone is always left out.

It is inevitable that one of the three will feel left out at some point. Make it an effort to do lots of things together and separate to make sure that everyone is always included!

2. There is always a group chat.

Our group chat is always busy. Keeping each other updated on life is a full-time job in itself.

3. When one is busy, the other is usually available.

You gotta love having two best friends when you're bored and need someone to hang out with. When one is busy, the chances of the other being available is pretty good!

4. Finding a place to eat is impossible.

We can never decide on where to eat. Most days, two of us will eat at one place and the other will bring food from another restaurant in. It's a struggle.

5. You have 2 families in addition to your own.

You get to know the families of your two best friends better than your own sometimes. How lucky are we to have three families that love us unconditionally?

6. You have 2 more full-sized closets.

In addition to having two extra families, you also get two extra closets. This makes getting ready on the weekends much easier!

7. There is always a majority vote.

When deciding where to go or what to eat, there will always be a 2-1 vote. Occasionally, you will get the 1-1-1 vote. In that case, someone has to sacrifice.

8. There is always time for a group hug.

What's better than a hug? A group hug. And better than a group hug is cuddles in bed from both sides when you need some extra love. You gotta love sleepovers with your two best friends.

9. You have double the support, double the love, and double the memories.

In the end, the struggles are worth it because you get two times the love, two times the support, and two times the memories.


I am so thankful for my two best friends. Though we get angry or annoyed sometimes, we are each other's number one fans. I am thankful for the group chat that goes off during class, the cuddles at night when we have bad days, and the memories made with the two of you. I love you both!

9 Eligible Princes You Need To Know About Now That Prince Harry Is Off The Market

You too could have a Meghan Markle fairytale

Prince Harry's royal wedding is officially over and there won't be another British royal wedding for quite some time now, as Prince George is way too young to start thinking about that. Fortunately, there are plenty of other countries with plenty of other princes that are still eligible bachelors at the moment. Lucky for you, I did my research and compiled a list of all the eligible princes you need to know about know that Prince Harry has tied the knot with Meghan Markle.

1. Prince Louis of Luxembourg (31)

Prince Louis is the third son of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg. He has recently become a bachelor again after his separation with his wife of 10 years, Princess Tessy.

Fun Fact: He graduated from Richmond, The American International University of London with a BA in Communications. He can also speak Luxembourgish (the fact that's even a language is fun fact by itself), French, German, and English fluently.

2. Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg (26)

Prince Sebastien is the youngest child of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg, so if you marry him, you'll probably never actually be queen because he's pretty far removed from the throne. However, he's relatively young and single, so best of luck.

Fun Fact: For some bizarre reason, this prince actually went to college in Ohio. He played rugby and graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2015. Now, he is back in his home country and is an officer in the Luxembourg Army.

3. Prince Phillipos of Greece and Denmark (34)

You read that correctly, Prince Phillipos is the prince of not one, but two countries. He is the youngest son of King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie of Greece and Denmark. Unfortunately, Greece abolished their monarchy, so he's a prince in name only there.

Fun Fact: Like Prince Sebastien, Prince Phillipos also went to college in the United States. He earned his B.A. in foreign relations from Georgetown University in 2008. Fortunately, for us American girls, he is actually still living in the US and he works in New York City as an analyst at Ortelius Capital.

4. Prince Albert of Thurn and Taxis (34)

Ever heard of Thurn and Taxis? No? Me neither. Anyways, Prince Albert is from the House of Thurn and Taxis, which is essentially a very old German aristocratic family. He is the son of Prince Johannes XI of Thurn and Taxis and Countess Gloria of Schonburg Glauchau. His family is well known for their breweries and castles, so unless you're gluten-free, you can't really complain.

Fun Fact: He's not just a prince. He's also a racecar driver and 10 years ago he was ranked 11th on Forbes Magazine's List of The 20 Hottest Young Royals.

5. Prince Mateen of Brunei (26)

Prince Mateen is basically like all the guys you already know, except he's royalty. He's the prince of Brunei, which is a small country on the island of Borneo, south of Vietnam. He is one of the five sons of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, and he also has seven sisters. Maybe that's a little different than the guys you know, but one thing he takes very seriously, just like most frat guys, is his Instagram.

Fun Fact: Mateen enjoys playing polo, flying in his private plane, cuddling cute wild animals, and keeping up his Insta game with 890k followers. You can follow him @tmski.

6. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai (35)

Sheikh Hamdan also has a killer Instagram with 6.3 million followers. Anyways, Sheikh Hamdan is the billionaire crown prince of Dubai and the second son of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is the prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and essentially the king of Dubai (Emir). He's actually next in line for the throne because his older brother died in 2015.

Fun Fact: Hamdan's hobbies include skydiving, zip lining, and diving, just to name a few, so if you're an adrenaline junkie, Sheikh Hamdan is the prince for you.

7. Prince Hussein of Jordan (23)

Prince Hussain is the son of the extremely beautiful, Queen Rania and Abdullah II of Jordan and next in line for the Jordanian throne. At 23, he's already a second lieutenant in the Jordanian Armed Forces and he was the youngest person ever to chair a UN Security Council Meeting


Fun Fact: Like Prince Phillippos, Prince Hussain also graduated from Georgetown University in Washington D.C.. Also, like Prince Mateen and Prince Hamdan, he's Insta famous with 1.3 million followers and you can follow him @alhusseinjo.

8. Prince Constantine-Alexios of Greece and Denmark (19)

Like Prince Phillipos, Prince Constantine-Alexios also has two countries. Lucky for us though, he is also living in the US right now attending Georgetown University in Washington D.C. (like pretty much every other prince, amirite?) He is the oldest son of Crown Princess Marie-Chantal and Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece.

Fun Fact: He's Prince William's godson, so that's pretty neat. However, if that wasn't cool enough, you might like to know that this Greek/Danish prince was actually born in New York. Oh yeah, you can also follow him on Instagram @alexiosgreece where he has 88.7k followers.

9. Prince Joachim of Belgium (26)

Prince Joachim of Belgium, Archduke of Austria-Este is the third child of Lorenz, Archduke of Austria-Este and Princess Astrid of Belgium. Although he bears the title, "Prince of Belgium," he is also Archduke of Austria-Este, Prince Royal of Hungary and Bohemia, and Prince of Modena. Unfortunately, he'll probably never actually be king in any of these countries as he is ninth in line to the Belgian throne.

Fun Fact: Prince Joachim has degrees in economics, management, and finance, but he decided to join the Nautical School in Brugge after completing college and is currently an officer in the Belgian Navy.

Hope is not lost for all you girls dreaming of finding a Prince Charming that's literally a prince. After reviewing the data, my best advice is to transfer to Georgetown where princes are basically around every corner.

7 Apps That Make It Easy To Stay Close With Your College Friends Over Break

"We should totally hang out over break!"... and then you never do.

One of the best parts about college is all the joy you get from being on campus. There's that newfound sense of independence you get if you move straight from your family home into your own apartment.

You get the freedom to choose things like what you're going to eat and when you're going to study. But the best part could arguably be the people you meet. Professors and mentors could potentially change how you're shaped as a person and what you end up doing, but so will your friends.

Most of what happens on college campuses is about engaging students with each other. You're meant to make friends that stick with you through graduation and beyond.

They become your support system when you're struggling with school stress or sickness, and the happiness they bring you could be what gets you out of bed in the morning to face that difficult class one more time.

But what happens when you go on break? Most students end up going home to visit with family or work at their old jobs while they aren't in class. This time might mean that you're going to have to leave your friends for a bit or that they'll leave you.

Don't panic about not being able to see them every day! Check out some of these great apps that will make it easy to stay in touch with your best friends.

You may even continue to use them after you're back to meet up at the cafeteria for dinner.

Whether you want to be able to hold long-term conversations as a group, binge watch movies together or even compete at games, an app will let you do exactly that. Get ahead of the curve and try some out before your next break so that you don't have to be without them.
