Here Are 10 Things You Can Relate To If You Only Have Brothers
Alyssa Paluch

Siblings are blessings from Heaven. At least you're not alone growing up. They may seem cool and all, but it's way different from others' perspectives. I was blessed with three younger brothers, but I don't have any sisters.

Let me tell you that if you have no idea what this is like, it CAN be as bad as you think it is. But, in the end, it's never always horrible, and we love each other. Also, yes, it is completely different from having sisters.

1. You know they are annoying as HELL.

They bitch about everything, you'd think they were women. Sometimes, you roll your eyes, but it's usually background noise you're used to by now. But... why must they be irritating on purpose?

2. You're glad they don't steal any of your clothes.

If I were to have sisters, we'd have cat fights over clothes stealing and hairbrush borrowing. Thank goodness I don't have to go through this. My brothers wouldn't go anywhere near my belongings.

3. You learn that they have different definitions of "personal hygiene" and "clean".

You don't want to know what I find in the bathroom. You don't realize how dirty it can get in a day's time. Pee on the toilet seat, shampoo stains in the shower, and hair gel all over the counter. It's actually impressive, but repulsive nonetheless.

4. You go into their rooms at your own risk.

Yikes. Major yikes. Why is there a hot dog in your shoe? Why does it smell weird in here? My eyes sting. Got to go.

5. You're used to the "boy stank."

Yes, farting is common in my household. All three brothers enjoy torturing me with their own "boy stank". Gross, but I'm sad to say I'm used to it.

6. They have attitude problems, but it's okay because you have one, too.

It's in the family, I guess! I want to punch them when they give me attitude, but then I remember that I'm just like them.

7. You get bossed around.

How funny, the so-called dominant sex is making you do things. Sounds about right. Hey, I'm the oldest, too. I don't know why or how I'm doing these things. Even my 3-year-old brother bosses me and gives me sass.

8. They NEVER listen.

In through one ear, and out the other! Never fails. Selective hearing IS a thing.

9. You hate how they are super lazy.

They're tired and want to watch movies, but there's shit to do. Get up, lazy butts.

10. They're protective towards you, and they got your back, always.

Even though they can be pains in the asses half the time, they know when you need your back covered. Boys don't stand a chance, you're taken. They make sure they know. I'm also lucky to have brothers because they love me so much.

I couldn't ask for anything better. Doesn't this sound familiar? Although it would be amazing to have a sister, I'm happy I have three brothers instead.

Today is Bisexuality Day and I'm more than ready to give all the bisexuals some love by breaking the stigma. I see you, I hear you, I appreciate you.

Bisexuliaty is a sexual orientation where people can form attraction and/or relationships to more than one gender. More than half of the LGBTQ+ community identifies as bisexual but it comes with a ton of bias, discrimination, and violence. And, honestly, bisexuals tend to be forgotten becuase bi-erasure wants to hold onto biphobia to question the existence and legitimacy of bisexuality.

There isn't one person the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hasn't affected. While COVID-19 is risking everyone's physical health, it's also destroying the world's economy and personal finances, weakening mental health, wreaking havoc on education... and, well, the list goes on.

Among the many things being impacted is love.

A Couple's Wedding In Peru Was Postponed By COVID-19, But A Lifetime Of Love Is Worth The Wait

"We'd prefer to wait and have the wedding that both of us have always thought of."

During their first semester at Instituto de Empresa (IE Business School) while working on graduate degrees in Madrid, Spain, soon-to-be-newlyweds Rory and Gigi met when they were placed in a workgroup together — and the rest was history. Now, four years after their relationship began, the couple's fall plans to get married in Perú, where Gigi is originally from, have since been postponed by COVID-19.

Though things haven't always been easy for the pair because of immigration, starting a skincare business together, and now, canceling their dream wedding because of the pandemic, they have always worked together as a team (maybe we should all be in a workgroup with our future spouses).

A Bumble Couple's Wedding Was Canceled By COVID-19, But Nothing Could Come Between This Perfect Match

"The whole purpose of all the stress and time and tears was that we love each other and that was all that mattered."

Shortly after Kaihla's sister made her a dating profile on Bumble (despite her fear of being catfished), she matched with Shanna, and their chemistry was quickly undeniable. So much so that only a month and a half into dating, Shanna told her best friend "I think I'm going to marry her," and eventually, the nonprofit worker and elementary PE teacher duo proved this to be true.

In the fourth episode of a new docuseries called "Pandemic Weddings" by SoulPancake, the couple opens up about how they met, the difficulties of canceling a non-refundable wedding of their dreams (that took a year and a half to plan), as well as the pain of having family members who didn't support their marriage use the pandemic as a convenient excuse not to come.

This fall was my boyfriend and I's two-year anniversary! In the past for special occasions, we've typically gone out for a movie and dinner or just did something fun in general. However, in the year of COVID, we didn't really feel safe doing something like that.

Instead, we wanted to try something new that kept us significantly more socially distanced. Luckily, I found a TikTok trend a few months ago that gave me the perfect idea! The Target TikTok trend blew up all over for couples and friends alike. It seemed like a fun activity for us but also a good way to get each other gifts that we might not have thought about.

If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.

And rightfully so! Because is there really anything sexier than someone who cares about using their voice to be the change they want to see? In my opinion, no... not much, honestly.

Any medium- to dark-skinned woman knows how difficult it can be to find the right SPF. Most mass-market SPF products are catered to lighter skin tones, and the potent UV-blocking titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have a way of leaving an unflattering white or grey cast on the skin.

Each state has different links and different websites, so this information primarily pertains to Florida residents.
