Gay Best Friends Are Better Than Regular Friends

5 Reasons Having A Gay Best Friend Is Better Than Having Regular Friends

Gay friends are just like diamonds.


There's something truly magical about a relationship between a straight girl and a gay man.

1. Gay friends will love your inner beauty.

It is a very well-known fact that good friends will definitely love you for who you are inside, but there's something about having gay friends that makes you feel truly accepted and admired for things other than your looks, your money, or your social status. Gay friends will rarely feel jealous of you for those things, and that's why hanging out with them will always feel like someone lifted a big weight off your shoulders.

2. Gay friends will give you great love advice.

Even though they're gay, your GBFs are still men, and they know the male brain better than us ladies do. The advice that your gay friends can give you as far as your love life goes will definitely be far better than any advice you will ever receive from your girlfriends, your mother, or even your grandmother. I mean, you should still listen to what grandma has to say, because she's been through some stuff and she probably has some great tips and tricks to pass down to you.

3. Gay friends could never become your lovers.

Often, friendly relationships between straight women and straight men can be misinterpreted. This is when those relationships become bumpy and weird, and sometimes we end up cutting ties with the other person because it's way too awkward to continue thinking of them as just friends. With gay friends, this could never happen. They're there to listen to you, to love you, and to cheer you on, no strings attached.

4. Gay friends will (almost) never steal your man.

Unless your boyfriend is a closeted gay man, it's practically impossible for your gay friends to steal your man candy. I think most girls have that one former girlfriend who once thought it would be worth it to lose their friendship over a guy, and that guy probably ended up leaving them too in the end. With gay friends, you can rest assured that your boyfriend or any male companion is safe from being snatched from you.

5. Gay friends will never use locker room talk when talking about you. Pavlov

Some men like to compensate for their own lack of testosterone by speaking in an incredibly rude way about the girls they're friends with, or even the girls they love. Your gay friends could never speak that way about you because they know how much it annoys you when you accidentally overhear conversations where other men are diminishing women for no apparent reason.

Your gay friends will always be there for you, no matter what life throws at you. Make sure to thank them just for being their wonderful, fabulous selves, and prioritize their friendship over anything else. Gay friends are just like diamonds: they're definitely a girl's best friends.

10 Struggles Girls Taller Than 5'7" Feel On A Spiritual Level

3. "Do you date guys that are shorter than you?"

Any girl who is at least 5'8" will understand these struggles and possibly identify with them on a spiritual level.

1. Dresses not being long enough

Finding dresses for any occasion that will be long enough is like searching for rain in a drought. And when you find one, it's bound to either cost $$$ or not fit another aspect of your body.

2. Heck, pants are never long enough either

You are constantly flooding, or else you rolled up your jeans to look like capris. Unless you special ordered some jeans online in the coveted size LONG or EXTRA LONG, this will forever be your fate.

3. "Do you date guys that are shorter than you?"

This is a personal preference people! Don't assume that a girl will or will not date someone just based on their height difference! Also, don't judge if they aren't interested in someone who is shorter than them!

4. Not wearing heels because you don't enjoy being the skyscraper of the friend group

Wearing heels can be fun buuuuuuuut sometimes towering over everyone else is not our idea of fun.

5. It's hard to find cute shoes that actually fit

You would love to have all those cute little shoes in the clearance section, but most of them barely cover your big toe.

6. Everyone thinks you walk too fast

Short-legged people just can't keep up with you, even though you aren't even walking fast. Like at all.

7. People want to jump on your back

Just because you're tall doesn't give them the license to make you into their personal camel.

8. Never being able to cross your legs underneath desks and tables

You. Can. Not. Get. Comfortable.

9. Awkward hugs

Some people will never understand.

10. Never knowing how to pose in pictures

Should you sorority squat? Pop the hip? Bend the leg? Contort your body to feel like a normal sized human? So hard to decide.

Summer = Rest?

Sometimes it feels as if we need a vacation... from our vacation.


Ah summer: Popsicles and sun burns, mixed with fresh-squeezed lemonade that local kids are pandering to make enough money for Roman candles and Black Cats. The crack of the bat can be heard among the simmering charcoal grills and Troy-bilts humming through the ever-lasting sun. School is out and children are wild. It's a paradise.

Or is it?

But after countless sports camps and tournaments, other camps, vacations, school (?) events, traveling teams, VBS, summer seems to have been sucked fun-free.

Maybe it's Hollywood and Harper Lee's fault for giving us this utopian view of what summer should look and feel like (I'm looking at you Sandlot). But how can we really rest this summer? Because everyone needs some actual rest, even adults.

First thing is do NOT pack your summer full. Say no to some things. Coaches and Families can expect too much and it's okay to say no to them. You have to. There is no time for kids to be kids anymore.

Work can take a backseat. Vacations need to be taken. Families need to reconnect.

And for all my super-scheduled people out there, please PLEASE don't schedule out your vacation. Just enjoy it.

Another bit of advice would be to put away the technology and spend some time outside. When was the last time you tried to catch lightning bugs? Or went for a swim? Or listened to birds on your front porch?

I may sound like I have an old soul, but I really feel like we have lost this connection to the outside world. Summer is all about getting a farmer's tan and getting stung once or twice. I can guarantee you that's some of the best therapy in the world.

Maybe this sounds all over the place. Maybe this sounds like me ranting. And it probably is.

But I'm telling you that this stuff matters. Don't let summer whiz by and you arrive in August more drained that you were in May. Enjoy this time with family and friends.
