10 Reasons You Can’t Survive Your 20s Without A Real Best Friend

I can't imagine a day going by without my best friend. From break ups to funny moments, she has to know them all. She's like my better half. While I know I can't survive without her at all, here's 10 reasons why I need her in my 20s.

1. They keep you grounded. 

Before I do anything, I always get her opinion. She lets me know my best options and looks out for me. She tells me what she truly thinks is best for me.

2. You always have a dinner date. 

If your spouse doesn’t want to go out, you know she will. Whether it be Chili’s or eating crab legs at home watching ‘Chrisley Knows Best’, you have that dinner date.

3. They’re honest with you. 

They will let you know if an outfit doesn’t look good before your date or if you need to change your color. They don’t want to hurt your feelings, but they want the best for you.

4. They keep your life full of laughter. 

Whether they send you the funniest Tik Toks or tag you in the craziest Facebook posts, you’re always laughing. They keep you laughing all the time.

5. They act like your mom, but that’s OK. 

Sometimes they act like your mom saying what’s best, but you know they’re looking out for you. Whether they say don’t wear that outfit or don’t go out with that guy. They know what’s best.

6. You always have that person. 

You have that person to have inside jokes with. You have that person you can look at and say one word and burst out laughing.

7. They know all your secrets, but don’t judge. 

Any of your secrets, they know. They don’t judge you because they’re your best friend. It’s almost like free therapy.

8. You know your birthday will always be the best. 

Whether they show up with a donut cake or throw a surprise birthday, you know every birthday will be phenomenal no matter how old you get.

9. They complete you. 

Whether it be you’re thinking about the same restaurant for dinner or end up dying your hair the same color. From finishing each other’s sentences to working at the same place, you complete each other.

10. They always pick you up. 

From finding out your pregnant to going through a breakup, you’re always there for each other. You make sure everything is okay and you reassure each other that it’s going to be okay.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.

3319

I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves. I realize not everyone believes in astrology-related anything, and there are plenty of people who don't fit their signs. However, I'm one of the people who truly fits their sign to a tee. I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
