To my loving boyfriend,

Every guy who has gone out with me was either too clingy or they were players. You're the only guy who has ever really cared. Thank you for being so kind-hearted, and thank you for being there when I needed you.

Thank you for being the guy who always liked me for me.

It was just a few hours of hanging out and having fun before it got real, and I started to have feelings. I started to think, "No... no... no." He's with someone, and I'm screwed.

I don't know how I did it because I was trying not to hard not to fall. But it was you who started to make me feel good inside because you didn't judge me. Thank you.

Now, you're mine.

Thank you for being the one who called in sick just to let me talk to you all day. Thank you for always being nice. Thank you for everything you have done to make this relationship work.

Thank you for always being patient with me whenever I was worried about something or when it needed to be done.

Thank you for being the one to put the pieces back together.

Thank you for not breaking my heart into pieces. You deserve an award for all of the sh*t I put you through.

Thank you for all of the heart to heart conversations.

You're the only one who can make me laugh about stupid things and make me laugh until my stomach hurts. Thank you for making me happy when I was upset, mad, sad or just needed cheering up.

You're the only person who ever made me so happy.

Thank you for letting me rant to you at 11 pm and talking to you until you fall asleep. This might be weird, but I love listening to you snore because I know you're not cheating. I know you're sleeping alone and being faithful.

Thank you for being the only man who ever crossed my path and really loved me.

Thank you for helping me find the true meaning of love and for always believing in me when no one did. Thank you for accepting the fact that I'm still learning to put my pieces back together and loving someone again.

Thank you for showing me the true meaning of love when it was really me who needed a reality check of what true love was.

That's how I know I love you.

Thank you for being the best boyfriend I could ever have. You're a lot better than the others, and I don't know how to thank you enough for getting me out of that. Thank you for not ever hurting my heart and tearing it into thousands of pieces.

Now that I thanked you, I think I should apologize for some things.

I'm sorry I doubt you, but it's only because I've been hurt before. I don't know if it's me, but I can see you being my best friend, even though I doubt so much because I have been hurt so much.

I have always been taken for granted. I deserve to be your wife one day. Note: I'm going to be a bomb ass wife. Honestly, You're doing everything a man should be doing.

Thank you for a lot of things that I'm probably missing but just have no words for. Thank you for being the love of my life by just standing in front of me and letting life take its course.

Thank you for being committed, being such a wonderful man to me, not telling me what to do and helping me towards my dream goal. That's to move back home to South Carolina, marry the hell out of you, grow old and have your children.

I love you so much, and I don't know how I would be able to repay you for what you're doing. Thank you for all you do. I love you now, and I'll love you until I die.

Love,

Your girlfriend.

Why Girls Love The Dad Bod

If your man can rock the dad bod, he's a keeper.

In case you haven't noticed lately, girls are all about that dad bod.

Girls have been dealing with body image issues since the beginning of time until recent (for those of you who consider yourselves to be "Thick thin") I hadn't heard about this body type until my roommate mentioned it. She used to be crazy over guys she claimed had the dad bod.

After observing the guys she found attractive, I came to understand this body type well and was able to identify it. The dad bod is a nice balance between a beer gut and working out. The dad bod says, "I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time." It's not an overweight guy, but it isn't one with washboard abs, either.

The dad bod is a new trend and fraternity boys everywhere seem to be rejoicing. Turns out skipping the gym for a few brews last Thursday after class turned out to be in their favor. While we all love a sculpted guy, there is just something about the dad bod that makes boys seem more human, natural, and attractive. Here are a few reasons that girls are crazy about the dad bod.

It doesn't intimidate us.
Few things are worse than taking a picture in a bathing suit, one being taking a picture in a bathing suit with a guy who is crazy fit. We don't want a guy that makes us feel insecure about our body. We are insecure enough as it is. We don't need a perfectly sculpted guy standing next to us to make us feel worse.

SEE ALSO: Slim Thick Is The New Thin

We like being the pretty one.
We love people saying "they look cute together." But we still like being the center of attention. We want to look skinny and the bigger the guy, the smaller we feel and the better we look next to you in a picture.

Better cuddling.
No one wants to cuddle with a rock. Or Edward Cullen. The end.

Good eats.
The dad bod says he doesn't meal prep every Sunday night so if you want to go to Taco Tuesday or $4 pitcher Wednesday, he'd be totally down. He's not scared of a cheat meal because he eats just about anything and everything.

You know what you're getting.
Girls tend to picture their future together with their guys early on. Therefore, if he already has the dad bod going on, we can get used to it before we date him, marry him, have three kids. We know what we are getting into when he's got the same exact body type at the age of 22 that he's going to have at 45.


So there you go. A simple break down of why girls everywhere are going nuts over this body type on males. We like it. We love it. We want some more of it. So here's to you dad bods, keep it up. Men, confidently strut that gut on the beach because while you stare at us in our bikinis we will be staring just as hard.

You Can Add Video Loops To Your Tinder Now And I'm Not Amused

It's a feature that can really only be used effectively by girls.

Tinder is (and always has been) the front-runner in the dating app industry. They're the original app for swipe dating. They set the precedent for similar swipe dating apps like Bumble, J-Swipe, and Hater. "Left swipe" and "right swipe" are household phrases now, thanks to Tinder's growing popularity.

Recently (like, last week), Tinder released an update with a new feature: Video loops. As an avid Tinder-er, I was itching to try it out. Tinder didn't really explain much about the new feature–they just introduced it. I didn't know how the video loops would show up on a profile, so I wanted to explore a bit before I jumped into the fray.

As I swiped, I finally came across a video loop! At first, I was excited that I'd found one. Then I took the loop at face-value: It made the guy look like such a tool. The loop was just a Boomerang of a guy playing the guitar... In a Speedo. Swipe left, OBVIOUSLY.

A few swipes later, I came across yet another video loop. This one was what looked like a Live Photo selfie turned into a video loop. This also made the guy look like a giant tool. So far, the score was Regular Profile: 2 - Video Loop: 0.

Girls like to post Snapchat stories consisting of a video or two of the girl admiring herself with the back camera of her phone. If you do this, go 'head, girl. If you're feeling yourself, you're feeling yourself. But I've never seen guys similar videos. I have a feeling that girls are just taking those videos and putting them on their Tinder profiles, which is fine. But guys have significantly fewer options when it comes to adding content.

When a guy adds a video to his profile, it doesn't make them more appealing. At least, not to me. If you're a guy with a great video loop, totally add it! But don't add one to take up space. It won't help your odds.
