A ranking of all seven guys Jess is with in the popular sitcom.

Throughout all seven seasons of "New Girl," us viewers have watched Jess enter in and out of numerous relationships. Although *spoiler* Nick and Jess end up getting married towards the end of the show (yay!), it takes a while to get there, and Jess often feels conflicted over who's the right person for her. Being a huge fan of the show, I'm extremely biased towards Nick and Jess, but here's a ranking of all of Jessica Day's boyfriends on the show!

7. Spencer

Jess and SpencerFox

Spencer obviously comes in last place. He cheated on Jess and broke her heart, and the two don't seem to have any real chemistry or serious feelings towards each other. The only plus side is that their breakup leads Jess to move into the loft!

6. Robby

Jess and Robby Fox

Oh, Robby... his and Jess' relationship was pretty much always a disaster. From their single and sufficient club to Jess dropping a literal gym weight on his face, this relationship has pretty much only gone downhill. Not to mention his previous relationship with Cece (weird), and finding out he and Jess are actually related.

5. Paul

Jess and Paul Fox

Paul is a nice guy and all, but he and Jess were a little too similar. Jess needs someone to balance her out, but Paul was always too sensitive and cried more than most people. He also told Jess he loved her after, what, a month?! Oh, Paul.

4. Russell

Jess and Russell Fox

Russell was also a nice guy and balanced out Jess' personality, but the two were never made to last. He was much older than Jess and a bit of a womanizer, but he surprisingly stayed in Jess' life longer than expected, even showing up to win her back at her wedding.

3. Ryan

Jess and RyanFox

The next three boyfriends were the only ones I thought Jess had a legitimate chance with. Ryan was a sweet guy and had great chemistry with Jess, but the relationship seemed to move a bit too fast. Their long-distance England/LA relationship ultimately did them in, but I overall thought Ryan was a solid boyfriend for Jess in the show.

2. Sam

Jess and Sam Fox

If Nick wasn't in the picture, I would want Jess to end up with Sam. He was a kind and attractive pediatric doctor and ultimately nearly matched Jess in weirdness (his season 5 comeback though). He and Jess always fit well together, and their relationship lasted several seasons in the show, beginning season 2 and picking back up season 5.

1. Nick

Jess and Nick Fox

Ultimately, however, Jess was always meant to end up with none other than Nick Miller. Nick and Jess have been best friends since she moved into the loft, and the two are hilarious and compliment each other perfectly. Although the two break up in season 3, they ultimately get back together and get married in season 7. Woohoo!

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.

193429

Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

For me, chai isn't just what I drink — it's a core part of who I am. Sure, I'll switch it up every now and then with a cup of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, rose, or Darjeeling, but I always come back to chai.

Nearly every tea lover has one tea they repeatedly drink and go back to, whether it's a daily morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up. One of my good friends has almost eight cups of jasmine tea every single day — she drinks more tea than water, actually.

Going To College During COVID-19 Has Caused Some INTENSE Burnout, And It's Not Just Me

Graduation doesn't even feel like the light at the end of the tunnel anymore.

1825

When my college announced that we would be having the fall 2020 semester on-campus, I was pretty excited. After six months of living at home with my parents with nothing to do, my study abroad trip in May canceled, and my 21st birthday plans down the drain, going back to campus meant that I would regain some of my individuality and see my friends again. But since we've returned, it has not been as fun as I had hoped my senior year of college would be.

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.

127034

When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

I went through a breakup in the middle of November 2018 and decided I'd get on Tinder and see what happens.
