Couples Argue And It's Normal

Couples Argue And It's Normal

Arguments only make a relationship healthier and stronger.

Some might say arguments are a part of life that can be avoided. I say that arguments make a relationship stronger. I know that each and every argument my boyfriend and I have had usually pulls us together in the end but there are moments where we've asked ourselves, "What's the point?"

The fact of the matter is no couple likes to argue but they do at some point end up arguing because it's normal. If you don't have a disagreement with your significant other every once in a while then congratulations, you might just be the most boring couple I have ever heard about. Arguments keep the passion and love alive.

Just the other day, my boyfriend and I were having a disagreement of sorts and the fighting began. We finally came to the conclusion that we both had some things to work on and now our relationship is stronger. Arguments lead to compromise which leads to a happy and healthy relationship.

Now don't get me wrong, arguing can also be a sign of an unhealthy relationship. If everything seems to turn into a fight or disagreement then something could be wrong. Only the important things are worth fighting over, not the little tiny insignificant details. I was once in a relationship where everything was an argument and I tried to keep it together until one day I just had to end it for the sake of my mental health.

There are good arguments and there are bad arguments, the thing about being in a good relationship is that all the arguments you have will be for the better. They make you stronger and wiser and will lead your relationship on to bigger better things.

Why Girls Love The Dad Bod

If your man can rock the dad bod, he's a keeper.


In case you haven't noticed lately, girls are all about that dad bod.

Girls have been dealing with body image issues since the beginning of time until recent (for those of you who consider yourselves to be "Thick thin") I hadn't heard about this body type until my roommate mentioned it. She used to be crazy over guys she claimed had the dad bod.

After observing the guys she found attractive, I came to understand this body type well and was able to identify it. The dad bod is a nice balance between a beer gut and working out. The dad bod says, "I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time." It's not an overweight guy, but it isn't one with washboard abs, either.

The dad bod is a new trend and fraternity boys everywhere seem to be rejoicing. Turns out skipping the gym for a few brews last Thursday after class turned out to be in their favor. While we all love a sculpted guy, there is just something about the dad bod that makes boys seem more human, natural, and attractive. Here are a few reasons that girls are crazy about the dad bod.

It doesn't intimidate us.
Few things are worse than taking a picture in a bathing suit, one being taking a picture in a bathing suit with a guy who is crazy fit. We don't want a guy that makes us feel insecure about our body. We are insecure enough as it is. We don't need a perfectly sculpted guy standing next to us to make us feel worse.

We like being the pretty one.
We love people saying "they look cute together." But we still like being the center of attention. We want to look skinny and the bigger the guy, the smaller we feel and the better we look next to you in a picture.

Better cuddling.
No one wants to cuddle with a rock. Or Edward Cullen. The end.

Good eats.
The dad bod says he doesn't meal prep every Sunday night so if you want to go to Taco Tuesday or $4 pitcher Wednesday, he'd be totally down. He's not scared of a cheat meal because he eats just about anything and everything.

You know what you're getting.
Girls tend to picture their future together with their guys early on. Therefore, if he already has the dad bod going on, we can get used to it before we date him, marry him, have three kids. We know what we are getting into when he's got the same exact body type at the age of 22 that he's going to have at 45.

So there you go. A simple break down of why girls everywhere are going nuts over this body type on males. We like it. We love it. We want some more of it. So here's to you dad bods, keep it up. Men, confidently strut that gut on the beach because while you stare at us in our bikinis we will be staring just as hard.
