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.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
