Having Single Friends And A Boyfriend

What It's Like to be Wifed Up while All Of Your Friends Are as Single As A Pringle

Are you wifed up and need a babe to relate to? I'm your girl. The rest of you can sing along with your "oo's" and "aw's".

I don't have enough fingers and toes to count how many times I have been called "lame" for waving off a girls night for my boo thing, in a good way. Never in a bad way, because when your friends accept the fact that you have a boo, your life is easy. I mean this.

But, if you have mad FOMO (fear of missing out) like I do, your boo can end up telling you to go home and go do it anyway. Having a long-term boyfriend that you love has a lot of perks, but just like everything that's good, it also has its downside.

Would I rather be single? Based off the things that my babe friends have talked to me about.

Absolutely freaking not.

It's pretty simple actually. When you have a boo thing for the summer, here are the things you go through.

You don't have to flirt with anyone for a free drink at the beach bar because, chances are, your babe has it covered.

Yes, yes I said it. The only person you have to give the puppy dog eyes to is your boo to beg him to buy you another shot to take with the girls. You win a golden prize if you and your lova do the "I buy the first and you buy the second" exchange.

You never have to worry about who you're going home with.

You're going home with your boo. You can leave the scavenging to your girlfriends, even throw them a bone a few times if you want. Get creative, but you know you never have to worry about wasted time because you already have a honey to be the big spoon at night.

Honestly, who doesn't love waking up to your boo thang at night?

You get the "you're literally so lucky you have him" line probably every day of your life.

Yes, I know I am lucky. You will find a little cucumber like mine one day. But, hey what about me? I would say I'm a huge catch, right?

If your boo isn't at the club with you, you're usually glued to a wall while your friends turn their game on.

Even if it is "just a girls night out", you can't blame your friends for flirting with the cuties across the bar. Not everyone is as lucky as you for finding someone too quickly. Step back and go for the ride, you can always send a "hey, pick me up" text.

You're like the boy mind reader all of a sudden.

Because you got him, right? So you automatically know everything there is to know about boys, relationships, penis, sex, and just about everything else. I'm seriously not complaining though; come to Mama, bitches.

You're pretty much the poster child for the perfect relationship.

Because, to be completely honest, who wouldn't want a relationship like yours? No, seriously, we're perfect.

Lastly, but never the least, your boyfriend is everyone's boyfriend.

He's there to listen to the drama, the stories, and send love to your friends. It's never really like they're single when they have your boo.

Like I said, it has its pros and cons.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

The NBA is back, and for basketball fans, like myself, it has been the BEST news we have heard since COVID-19 shutdown play indefinitely. I mean, come on, we need to see if James Harden can once again perform so well he has back-to-back 50 point games, Kawhi can lead another team to the championship title, and whether Giannis is going to be back-to-back MVP... among like 500 other things running through our heads!

In the midst of all of the amazing statistics and records that these players are breaking, though, we also just love the NBA because well, there are some pretty good looking guys out there. Here are the 19 hottest NBA players (in no particular order) you would totally let slam dunk on you now that the NBA has returned.

Everything You Need To Know About Macronutrients, Because A Diet Should Be More Than Calories

Pay attention to what you're eating, not just how much you're eating.

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).

Just Because You're Asked To Be In A Wedding, Doesn't Always Mean You Should Say Yes
