If Your Boyfriend Isn't Your Best Friend, Maybe It's Time To Reconsider Your Relationship

If you aren't 100% comfortable with them, why are you with them?


If you aren't 100% comfortable with your boyfriend, then why are you still with them?

I get that at the beginning of any relationship, it can be awkward to be 100% no filter. You don't want to talk about your period, or pee in front of them. You might even be too shy to eat in front of them, too. You always show your best side with them, and you never under any circumstances talk about your bowel movements after your Taco Bell date.

However, when you've been together with your boyfriend as long as I have with mine, you should be able to be comfortable enough to be your true self around them. Then you show your girlfriends.

I'm not ashamed to say my boyfriend is my best friend. I've had so many best friends in my lifetime. They come and go. No tea or shade to them. I believe everything happens for a reason. But, my boyfriend has always been by my side. He's been there for me since day one. We spend pretty much every day together. I mean, it'd be kind of hard not to since we live together.

And yeah, we have days apart. He's in the military and I have full-time school and work. We have tons of time apart. But at the end of the day, I can count on him to listen to my 12 a.m. rants.

He's there for me when I'm happy, sad, and all the in between.

He's there for me through thick and thin, and he surprises me with food just because!

Your best friend should be your boyfriend. Not to say they should be your only best friend, but they should be just as easy to talk to as one of your girls would be.

And if they aren't? Get a new man.

Or get a puppy. They're pretty cool, too.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
