Yes, My Boyfriend Is My Best Friend

Yes, My Boyfriend Is My Best Friend

No, I'm not going to apologize that he is.


Some people may criticize me by saying that I don’t dedicate enough time to other things that don’t involve my boyfriend. I completely understand where they are coming from, but it's frustrating when people don't understand the position from which I am coming. Instead, there is some judgment that I'm not experiencing life.

Do people not see that I am happy? Is it so wrong that there are so many things that I want to do with him? Is it bad that we get along so well that we can hangout all the time?

I’m not going to apologize that my boyfriend is my best friend.

I feel the stigma around girls who spend a significant amount of time with their boyfriends. It wouldn’t be a problem if I was constantly hanging out with one of my friends. It's just a problem because I’m dating him.

Instead of looking at the amount of time I spend with my boyfriend as a negative, I see the upside of the situation. We get along with each other so well that we can spend every day together without going crazy. Isn’t it a good sign that I can spend so much time with him since that is what our future will be like? Doesn’t that mean that we have a great relationship?

Yes, there are times when I would rather stay in with my boyfriend than go out with other people, but I don’t do this every single time. We aren’t so dependent on each other that we can’t spend time apart from each other.

We know that there needs to be a healthy balance.

We take the time for ourselves by spending time with our friends and family. We can have fun without the other person. In fact, I love seeing my boyfriend happy hanging out with his close friends or focusing on his own hobbies.

I got lucky that my boyfriend is my closest friend. It is one of the best feelings to know that our relationship is that strong.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
