Let's talk about relationships. Some can be fun, some can be great, and some can just be absolutely awful. I think Carrie Bradshaw said it best when she said, "maybe our girlfriends are our soulmates and guys are just people to have fun with." At some point, there will be a boy that will be your forever, eventually.
However, I am NOT at that stage. I repeat, I am NOT at that stage, so please do not ask.
Boys in their early 20s, for the most part, are not looking for the same relationship that a girl in her 20s is looking for. All they want to do is play games with your heart, and I am just not cool with that! Sadly, some boys in the early years of college are really, really good at playing games (queue Demi Lovato "Games"). If you aren't careful, you could lose and get a broken heart. That isn't always the case, though.
Luckily, I have a great group of friends who will help when I am dealing with heartbreak.
Having a good group of friends in high school and in college is essential for not only dealing with heartbreak but also all other aspects of life. My girlfriends are always there with support and a tub of ice cream. Friends are really great for that. I remember my first major heartbreak, my best friend greeted me at my door with ice cream, hot fudge, and a roll of cookie dough. Since then, those items are my go-to with every heartbreak I've had to deal with (and my best friend, too). My friends have always been incredible at making sure I am busy and having fun when I'm down.
