7 Things Your Boyfriend Could Learn From Your Dog On Making A Girl Happy

I've never understood why men are sometimes called "dogs" when they do something that would be called "slutty" if a girl did it. Dogs are so loving and faithful! In fact, I think many of our boyfriends could take some notes on love from our dogs, so here are seven things our boys could learn from our pups.

1. How excited to get when you come home

We all know that dogs love to see you when you get home even from a trip to the mailbox. Sometimes, boyfriends don't even seem to notice when you come over to their houses!

2. Proper snuggling technique

Boyfriends hog the blankets and don't let you play with their hair. They could use some training from a dog to learn to snuggle like a champ!

3. How to be playful

Dogs are so playful, especially puppies. They're always down for some tug-of-war or bubbles. Boyfriends, on the other hand, often get grumpy when we want to play outside or do something child-like.

4. Listening skills

You could sit and talk to your dog for hours on end. Even though your furry friend can't respond to you, somehow you know they were listening.

5. Faithfulness

Have you ever met a man as faithful as a dog? Didn't think so. Take notes, boys!

6. Interpreting your emotions

Sometimes when we have a bad day, our dogs just know. They come over and bring you their favorite toy or snuggle with you when boyfriends believe you when you say you're "fine." The simplest gestures can really help turn your day around.

7. Unconditional love

Above all else, dogs love you at your best and your worst. Hopefully, we can all find a boyfriend who can love us like that too!

While boyfriends are great, dogs will always be better! Go give your favorite pup an extra treat and tell them how much you love them. Oh yeah, and don't forget to tell your boyfriend, too.

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
