He's Not Just My Boyfriend, He's Also My Best Friend, And I'm Never Apologizing For That

There is nothing wrong with having a boyfriend that is also your best friend.

He's Not Just My Boyfriend, He's Also My Best Friend, And I'm Never Apologizing For That
Katelyn McKinney

Yes, my boyfriend is my best friend, and I am not sorry about it at all.

He has been there for me at my worst. He has seen ugly tears roll down my face as I cry to him about something that has happened. He is always there to wipe those tears away while hugging me and telling me everything will be OK. He is there offering comfort and forever trying to cheer me up. He is the one I prefer to cry to because of this.

He isn't only there in the hurt. He is by my side during the happiest moments of my life. I love to be adventurous, and he is right there with me, enjoying every moment. We have made so many memories that are filled with laughter and joy. I look forward to days where we can experience something new. Even days that would seem not so special to someone else can become some of the best days ever. Just being able to spend time together can brighten my day.

My boyfriend is my personal comedian. He is always cracking jokes, some funny and some not. Either way, I end up laughing. He is the goofiest person I know, yet also the most serious. We can have the most in-depth talks about everything under the sun. I value talks like this instead of just simple small talk.

My boyfriend is also my biggest support. He is there when I fall down to help me get back up. He is also there when I succeed with a big smile on his face saying he knew I could do it all along. He drives me to be a better person every single day. He tries so hard to be the best he can for me, and it only pushes me to do the same. He is not only my boyfriend, my best friend, but also someone I look to.

It is OK if your boyfriend is your best friend.

But girl, you need some girlfriends too. I don't know where I would be without my girls by my side. They make me laugh, support me, and help make the best memories.

They're there with a text or call, telling you how "kick butt" you are and that you can do anything you want. They're that extra bit of sass and fun that you need. They're also there to tell you if your outfit looks good, what you should buy and how to do your hair for the day. You need some girlfriends too.

Do not be the girl that forgets about them once you get a boyfriend. He can be your best friend, your better half, and everything you ever wanted. But he is not a replacement for your friends. Don't be so involved that you forget about them because then you create a bad rep for the rest of us.

So I am here to set things straight. It is OK that your best friend is your boyfriend, just don't forget your girlfriends.

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
