10 Reasons Being In A Relationship With Your Best Friend Is The Best

Growing up, we all watched movies like "13 Going on 30", "Clueless", and "Love Actually" and thought that's how love and relationships were meant to be, then we grew up. All through out middle school and high school, people thought they were going to get into a relationship and have this perfect, romantic person that were going to sweep them off their feet, but they were sadly awakened by the fact that, that isn't always the truth. Now in college, we're getting a bit closer to the truth of what love can truly be like. Sometimes we get the average relationship and can be happy, other times you get lucky and can be in the relationship everyone is jealous of. When you do end up in that type of relationship, everyone either is really happy for you or jealous and give you looks or silently judges you.

I am one of those people in one of those relationships and there are things that people don't understand about being in a cliche relationship. So many people expect the greatness of this type of relationship to fizz out but there are so many great things that stay, at least they have for the 2 years I've been in one.

Mature Conversations


This is one of the most important things when it comes to a healthy relationship and sometimes we as humans are quick to be defensive. Being able to talk about the tough stuff (politics, views on tough issues, etc.) and listening to what each other has to say instead of immediately attacking each others opinions is so important. This is something we as a society need to do no only with our significant others, but also all of our relationships. I feel, especially with those cliche relationships, you tend to have a close enough bond where nothing changes how you feel about each other, of course if it's not a huge deal.

They Know All

Half the time, you're dating your best friend. You get to tell them everything, joke around with them, but also go on dates with them! They're your everything and you couldn't ask for a better person to have in your life. They also know every little thing about you, from the kind of toothpaste you use to the little tells in your face that give them everything they need to know about how you feel. You also get to know everything about them as well.

You're Already Family

You have been in their life for a while now so their family already knows who you are, which then makes you already apart of the family. You already have the approval of the family before the two of you get together. Everyone in his family welcomes you with open arms and you get to skip the awkward first family meeting.

You Can Act Like A Goof Around Them

They already know how weird you are so act however you want, they'll love every moment of it. These are the things that allow you two to grow closer as people. Sure, the serious moments do as well but these moments too. You also get to just act like a kid and not get judged for it. We need more moments to continue holding on to our inner kid.

You Never Get Bored

7 Ways to Show Intimacy Without Having Sex


Everyone has those dull moments but when you date your best friend, even those dull, silent moments are interesting and it's because you're together. You both can be on your phones and not talking to each other but still have that connection and enjoy your time together. You also get to enjoy just being in each others company. You get to enjoy the non-sexual intimacy that most couples don't know about yet.

Your significant other being your best friend is amazing and freeing. There is no amount of words that can describe that love you have for each other. The best kind of love is when it's indescribable. I hope everyone who wants to, gets to feel this type of love.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
