My Dad Is The Best Relationship I Have

The bond between a father and daughter is something that cannot even be compared.

149
Haley Zmuda

A father will stop at nothing to make sure his daughter, or daughters, are safe and happy while daughters try their absolute best to make their father proud.

He's a role model

As the saying goes, "You marry someone who is very similar to your father" and so how your dad acts is going to be how your husband and kids will behave. Their personalities should be almost identical because you look up to your father as a strong marriage and love role model.

He's protective

Your dad will threaten every single one of your boyfriends because no one is allowed to break his little girl's heart. They will hate every single guy that walks into the house because in his mind there is always a potential for him to turn out into a relationship. But that's just because he doesn't want to see you cry or hurt.

He always knows how to make you laugh

From my own experience, I know that fathers have the best and the stupidest humor. Dad jokes are a real thing and every time, the small puns will get to me. No one can compare to a father's humor.

He teaches you how to relate to boys

A father's job is to share his knowledge of boys and prepare you for men in the future. Now that may mean watching a ton of Black Hawk Down and sitting through hours of sports documentaries, but it's so much easier to talk to guys your age when you know the baseball team they like to watch or what happens in their favorite movie.

He is your best guy friend

You can go to your dad about any issue. he's always a spare pair of listening ears for your problems. And somehow they always know the right words to say in stressful situations. I know that once my father says "I know it seems rough right now, but there's a whole new day tomorrow ahead of you," I know not to worry about the little indecency that I have going on in my life.

His tears have a deeper meaning to them

Guys in general don't like to show their emotions, but when a dad breaks into tears or even shows a bit of his soft side, you know that it means a lot to him. Those moments of small emotional breakdowns are the ones you can vividly describe because they don't show up as often as you would think. I can only count two times that my dad has cried in front of me and they will forever be ingrained in my memory.

He knows exactly how to push your buttons

A father has the magical ability of knowing exactly what annoys you to the point where you just want to scream at him. Whether that be trying to understand the newest memes and trends or trying to become text savvy to seem "cooler", They always know exactly what gets to you. In the moment, you can't stand them, but overall your life would be not as fun without the annoyance.

He would go to the ends of the earth to help you out

Father's will always tell their daughter's that they won't let a boy near their daughters and that's because they really don't want their daughters to ever feel pain in their lives. A father will go out of his way to make sure his daughter gets everything she deserves and if it's not possible for some reason, the father personally blames himself. My dad has told me multiple times that if the time ever comes, he would risk his life in a second to save me from any pain and suffering.

He will love you unconditionally no matter what the circumstance is

There is nothing that could happen that would make a father dislike or hate his daughter. Absolutely nothing. No lie or problem will change a father's mind about his unconditional love. Literally, the moment you come into the world, your dad's love is set for the rest of your life.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
