I am as straight as can be and I love boys! Always have and can definitively say I always will. Not to say that I don't have girlfriends, but, for me, it's easier to connect with guys. I know that they aren't out to judge me, talk behind my back, secretly hate it when something good happens to meyeah, I have had some bad experiences with girls.

But, can guys and girls reallybe friends? Heterosexual individuals to be clear.


"Point to the jealousy that plagues many rational people when a significant other befriends someone of the opposite sex. Boil it down to the inherent differences between the sexes."

I mean, why not? Their sexual needs will cause too much tension between them?

Listen, I talk about sex all the time and I completely understand that both women and men yearn for sexual relationships. However, this doesn't mean that a male and a female are incapable of being platonic friends! As long as both partners understand that no romantic feelings are present, then these two individuals have all the strength to enjoy one another's time without pouncing on one another!

I like to say, romantic partners are friends but with sex; hence, heterosexual relations are just friends withoutsex (excluding "friends with benefits" relationships).

Personally, I have a lot of boy friends. No, not boyfriends. We are not dating, we do not plan on dating, and, although we may flirt for fun, we do not act upon sexual excitement.

We are mature enough to control what's in our pants: it's not all about sex.


If you don't believe me, take it from the experts who've concluded, "Though it may be tricky, men and women can successfully become close friends. What's more, there are good reasons for them to do so."

I love all my friends. I love my guy friends even if they are males since "platonic love does exist." They are respectful and supportive, and I couldn't ask for anything more. I don't care if some of my guys don't understand my "girl-talk," they give me the inside scoop on "boy-talk."

Guys don't judge me for the things girls would. Guys don't text their friends about my personal life as I'm crying to them about the stress I'm going through. Guys don't dare let anyone step on me.

Simply, guys are a girl's best friend.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
