7 Little Things My Boyfriend Does Daily That Prove He's A Keeper

Because romance isn't always in grand gestures.

7 Little Things My Boyfriend Does Daily That Prove He's A Keeper

As one half of a couple in a three-plus years relationship, I know that life gets hectic and long-term relationship romance can get put on the back burner.

Yet, there are little things my boyfriend does daily that remind me how thankful I am to have him in my life. It doesn't always take a grand gesture to show you care.

1. Sends me a good morning text (and calls when I don't answer)

When I don't answer a good morning text he knows I probably slept through my alarm and thoughtfully calls to make sure I get up.

2. Walks at my pace

At 5' 2" my walking pace is a little slower than most other people so it's nice when my boyfriend slows down so I don't have to jog beside him.

3. Keeps me fed

Not only do I forget to eat sometimes but when I don't eat, I get extremely hangry so keeping me to a proper eating schedule and dealing with my food-related mood swings are very real things my boyfriend deals with on the reg.

4. Carries my things

Like a picture out of the '50s, having someone help you carry your things is just a universal sign for "I'm here to help," which is always nice.

5. Opens the door for me

A little bit of chivalry goes a long way. I know many girls see things like this as sexist but I think it's just nice to be wooed a bit sometimes.

6. Lets me nap

Along with being crabby when I don't eat, I also get grumpy when I don't get enough sleep. When my boyfriend lets me come over and nap in his bed while he watches TV or works on homework it's always nice, because somehow his bed is way comfier than mine?

7. Texts to make sure I got home okay

Saying "text when you get home" is always a nice sentiment from anyone but followed by a text or two to make sure I'm actually home safe when I forgot to actually text is going above and beyond and shows he actually cares.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
