The 6 Certain Struggles Of Every Girlfriend

The 6 Certain Struggles Of Every Girlfriend

The struggles sometimes seem endless, but at the end of the day, it is all worth it.

Lately, in the midst of washing my boyfriend's heavily, grease-stained work clothes (he's a welder), I have begun to wonder if the struggles I happily face being a girlfriend are shared by my fellow women. Am I the only one that reluctantly picks up clothes off the floor sitting two feet from the dirty clothes basket? Am I the only one that gets frustrated when it takes a whole argument for my boyfriend to finally tell me what's been bothering him, and get him to talk about his feelings? It can't be so. I have a feeling that most any woman with a significant other can agree.


Such a simple, yet annoying task that seems to blow the minds of most of the male species. Every aspect of this process is foreign to my boyfriend. The clothes never make it to the dirty clothes basket. He wouldn't even know how to properly start the washing machine. "You mean, you're supposed to separate colored clothes from whites?" Folding a pair of pants is harder than fixing the engine of a car, for crying out loud.


I don't know if everyone's boyfriend/husband has the appetite of an entire NFL football team, but mine does. The first question I am usually asked in the afternoons, after a kiss, of course, is "what's for dinner?" And midnight snacks? I mean, getting woken up to a cute pouty face asking for ice cream is always hard to say no to.


My boyfriend will cause 10 arguments, a tornado, hurricane and a full on war before he will talk about his feelings and tell me what is bothering him. It is usually something that is an easy fix, or that he usually feels better about after he talks it out. But getting to that point? Pure.. well you know what.

Stealing the covers.

Okay, so I know some girls are bad about this, but my word. I wake up with a corner of the sheet more nights than not. I sleep with extra blankets on the bed for backup. And believe it or not, sometimes he takes those too.

Leaving hair in the sink/shower when he shaves.

I am not quite sure why this brings out a mini demon in me, but it does. Oh, and using my razor at times? Another way to drive me insane. I just don't understand how I can shave my legs every day without a trace, and he can't shave his face without leaving the scene of a murder.

Being stubborn.

I will admit, I am pretty stubborn myself, but he wins this category for sure. He just has to be right. And if I show him an easier way to do things? Not gonna happen unless it's his idea or his way. I thought little kids could be hard-headed, but boy he never outgrew it.

Sure there are plenty more struggles I endure every day, but it is more than worth it. He has plenty of bad habits he has to put up with me too. It is just part of being in a relationship. And what we go through, is part of being a woman. God made Eve for Adam, and it's a good thing he did because I have a feeling if women didn't exist, sure men would get stuff done, but they'd fall apart without us.

10 Shows Netflix Should Have Acquired INSTEAD of Re-newing 'Friends' For $100 Million

Could $100 Million BE anymore of an overspend?


Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

For The Grandparents You Lost Before You Were Ready, Because You Never Can Be

We weren't ready and there is so much I wish I could tell you.


You were taken far too soon. It's not fair, I didn't have you for long enough. Why do the bad things happen to the good people?

It's been nine years and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you. When you left, I had to be strong for mom because she had to take care of everything. But when it was all said and done, I was curled up in the closet crying.

It's been nine years and you've missed so much. You didn't get to see me baptized, start cheerleading, graduate high school, get my first job, or have my first real boyfriend. It hurts to know you won't see me graduate college, get married, or have kids. But, I know you are watching over from Heaven. I can always feel your presence.

It scares me because Kylie was only 6 when you left us. I worry about what she remembers. I'm scared because I can barely remember your voices. But I am thankful because I remember grandpa's love for hats, grandma's love for scrabble, and a shared love of card games. I remember big Christmases, the mess of making chicken and dumplings, running down the hall away from the tickle monster, and most of all, I remember the love you showed me. Your love was overwhelming, safe, and unfaltering.

To you Grandpa and Grandma, Ray and Joy, I miss you, I love you, I hope I do you proud. I will show the love you gave me to as many people as I can. Your memory will live on through the stories we tell and you will never be forgotten.

I'll give mom a hug and kiss for you. I know you'd give us all one. Keep watching over, OK? I love you.
