7 Reasons Dating A Country Boy Is Better Than Dating Any Other Boy

I'm sorry to all the other boys out there, but I'll be sticking with my country boy.

7 Reasons Dating A Country Boy Is Better Than Dating Any Other Boy
Alyssa Owings

Call me biased if you want, but I think that country boys (specifically the southern ones) are the BEST men out there. Granted, I've been dating mine for seven years, and I think he's incredible, so maybe I just found a good one. But let me be the first to tell you if you've never dated a good ol' country boy, that there are so many things that make them special and make them the kind of guy that you're going to wish would put a ring on it.

From their politeness to the way they treat their mama, there are so many reasons that a southern boy is one you should keep around:

1. They're polite

They say please and thank you, hold doors open for you and everyone else, and they say "mam" and "sir." They have better manners than your average boy.

2. The accents

Don't get me wrong, I love Scottish and English accents more than you know, but there is just something about a man saying, "Yes mam, I'm doin' aiight, how y'all been?" that gets me. Sorry, but it's not up for debate. Have yourself a chat with a country boy from the south and try not to swoon because I bet you won't be able to.

3. They're protective

A country boy is going to protect you no matter what. Whether it be from someone saying something wrong about you or during a scary movie, he's going to be there to wrap his strong arms around you and tell you that everything will be alright.

4. They're (usually) THICK

Listen. I know we all have our types and our preferences. But from what I've seen, and using my boyfriend as an example, country boys are thick in the best ways possible. A lot of times, and don't ask me why because I have no idea, they're fit while still having big shoulders and arms and big hands (I have a thing for hands, @ me).

I'm sorry, but I like my men thick. If they can use it as an adjective for us, ladies, we can say it about them, too.

5. They know how to have fun

I've been on some crazy adventures with my country boy. They want to hunt, fish, ride four wheelers, go mudding, go to the racetrack, go hiking, have a bonfire, etc. They want to get dirty and have fun while doing it (please excuse the innuendo).

6. They love their families and their friends

County boys are ones you can honestly think about one day settling down and having a family with because relationships are so vital to them. Traditions and gatherings are important to them and something they frequent. They're also ALWAYS there to step up when they need to be, and they're willing to do anything for someone they care about.

7. They love their mamas.

And let's not forget the one of the most important parts; their mamas have taught them respect and how to love you.

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
