So Here's The Rundown On What Teenage Boys Really Think Of Girls

"We want to feel needed, even if it's just handing us that jar you can't open, it makes us feel really good."

As we head into November, men and women alike are getting ready for the incoming winter with Christmas season on the horizon and the new year only two months away. Apparently, it is also cuffing season around these parts so as a college student, why not talk about how boys approach girls? I actually took the time to talk with a couple of friends that are still in high school to give a teenage view with my adult views. Boy, did that go well.

Everyone isn't a girl magnet

Giphy

"Unless we are a natural girl magnet, communicating with the girl we like is rather hard for us. Surprisingly, flirting for a lot of guys comes easy (not all) if they are just flirting with some random girl, it is when we start out a conversation with a girl we like that brings out the awkward pauses, ums, and general unattractiveness. This is largely due to extreme anxiety, and pretty much as soon as you reciprocate some of the flirting back, we ease up."

Harassment

Giphy

"If another guy is harassing you, a whole lot of us are more than willing to go teach him a lesson as soon as we hear about it. Regardless of the consequences."

We love to be pillows

Giphy

"We love it when you fall asleep on our shoulders. Enough said."

Brooooooooo

Giphy

"We will call literally any other guy bro even if we just met them 10 seconds ago."

Beauty

Giphy

"We love you without a ton of makeup!"

Empowerment 

Giphy

"Even if we don't say it often enough, y'all are really awesome."

Athletics

Giphy

"Nothing is cooler to a guy than a girl that (at least pretends to be) interested in their favorite sport and can get at least most of the terminology right."

Playing Dumb

Giphy

"We will play dumb on something to get you to explain it to us and spend time with us."

Obsession

Giphy

"We will do anything for the right woman, literally anything, I'm talking we will attempt Jason Bourne level stuff to keep you safe and love you, but you have to give us some sort of signal that that love is reciprocated."

When hands are thrown

Giphy

"That being said, if we get into a fight, don't try to peel us off. When a guy is in a fight, the adrenaline is running so high that as soon as he feels something touch him, he turns and swings, he sees what it is afterward. We just don't want you to get hurt."

 Flirting

Giphy

"99% of the time, that dude trying to flirt with you is not a creep, he just does not know what he is doing (HOWEVER, if you feel unsafe in any situation, GET OUT OF THERE ASAP. One guy's feelings being hurt is not worth the possibility that he is a creep, all I'm saying is don't always confuse ineptness with pretty women for being a creep)."

Paying Attention

Giphy

"We probably aren't going to talk to you if you are either not looking up from your phone or surrounded by your friends (impenetrable walls)."

Spreading legs is NOT a bad thing for a guy

Giphy

"'Manspreading' is us not crushing our testicles between our legs. Get over it."

We need some affection too

Giphy

"We want to feel needed, even if it's just handing us that jar you can't open, it makes us feel really good."

Best friends forever

Giphy

"Us and our guy bros, we are really tight, like friends to the end tight. Don't try to break that up."

Dating within the circle is dangerous

Giphy

"Also, if you have dated one of our close friends in recent history, don't be surprised if we are kinda hesitant about dating you, it's just one of those unspoken rules for guys."

Men are not mind readers

Giphy

"We know WHEN there is a problem, but we cannot pinpoint WHAT the problem is when you will not tell us. We just want to help, please let us."

Convincing us to break up with you is actually pretty hard

Giphy

"It will take A LOT for us to dump you, I'm talking abuse/cheating here. Obviously, there are guys who would, but most of us would never even dream of it without an extreme case like mentioned before."

Blushing is cute

Giphy

"When you blush in front of us, even the most calloused of our hearts melt."

It's the simple things that count

Giphy

"Most of the time, hanging out at home and watching a movie on the couch with dinner that both of us made is just as good/much much more enjoyable for us than a night on the town."

When it comes to movies

Giphy

"We will be the running commentary on any chick flick you want us to watch. We do this to feel like we are keeping a shred of our manliness while we are watching 'The Kissing Booth.'"

We will also keep watching them

Giphy

"We will then rewatch it for the fun of it a couple nights later when we are sure nobody will walk in."

Athletes don't want to be embarrassed 

Giphy

"If we see you on the sidelines of any game we are in, the stakes just increased exponentially."

Guys have feelings

Giphy

"We have feelings too, we just hide them for several reasons including… reasons (ha, you thought I was going to spill those secrets)?"

Guy behavior doesn't always translate to everyone

Giphy

"Most of us a whole lot more crude/vulgar when just with our guy friends. We try to behave nicely for you."

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

Disney

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
