I'm The Girl With A Bunch Of Guy Friends And No, It's Not Weird

There is nothing wrong with being the girl who's friends with guys.

I'm The Girl With A Bunch Of Guy Friends And No, It's Not Weird

Everyone finds their peace in who their friends are different. For some girls, it's their girl gang of two, others it's 26... and for some it's the entire football team. Although in high school this was frowned upon, in college... it's just another thing.

1. No, I don't have a crush on any of them.

Alright this might not entirely be true all the time, but generally... these guys are beating me up like their my brothers, the LAST thing I want is to be into them like that.

In reality, a lot of girls tend to cling to guys because they find themselves feeling more secure and less drama involved than with other girls.

2. This doesn't mean I don't have girlfriends.

Having girlfriends is great. However, there is often drama and annoyance factors that come along with them, for some girls having a small circle of girlfriends and a bigger circle of guy friends is the best way to avoid this drama.

3. No, I'm not "just one of the guys."

Believe me, I'm the girliest girl ever, and I'm still friends with mostly guys. They just treat me different, there's nothing to it.

4. We're great wing women.

Girls speak girl, so what's the best way to get your guy friend to score the hot girl across the bar? Help the conversation.

5. I'm just fine around them.

Seriously, I'm more myself with guys than with girls. Most girls in this situation will say the same. Less. Drama.

6. I'm not a guy whisperer.

Just because I have a close group of guy friends doesn't mean I have some playbook into the minds of men. If anything I know less because I deal with the stupidity on a daily basis.

7. Yes, I get protective of them.

When one of your boys is talking to a new girl, it's extremely likely you'll get jealous. Even if you aren't into him like that, the thought of having a new girl in the group is scary. Is she pretty? Is she nice? Is she crazy?

8. Boundaries are...hard.

You'll slip up, AT LEAST once... maybe more. Trust me, that thins you said you'll never do with him, you will. With that, you'll also just have a weird dynamic and "Is he into me in a different way?" a few times. Are you telling me I look good in a friendly manner? Why are you winking at me from across the room?

9. People will assume you're dating.

You really won't be able to even go to the grocery store without someone assuming you're dating. Just accept that now.

10.  Their girlfriends won't always like you.

It's hard when the new girlfriend is intimidated and looks at you like you're satan. At that moment all you want to do is scream "I"m really glad you and Matt are together!!!" Just let her ease into it, she'll realize that he'll hug her and punch you soon enough.

11. Having that moment of, "eh screw it," and hooking up with them.

You will. At least once. I'm sorry. It's true.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

The Girlfriend's Guide to College

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
