So, you caught feelings for your fuck buddy. Not the end of the world, but also definetly NOT the most ideal situation to be in. The stereotypical "someone caught feelings so we decided to call it quits" end to a FWB-ship may seem likely, but it doesn't have to be! If you play your cards right, there's definetly potential to turn your fuck buddy into your boyfriend.

1. Introduce him to your friends.

Once he gets to know your friends, he's going to get to know a little bit more about the girl you are outside of the bedroom. He'll also be connected to your friends in some way, so if he ever breaks your heart, he'll know for sure that these girls are coming for him.

2. Ask to meet HIS friends.

This is major. If he lets you meet his friends, you're much more to him than just someone he wants to fuck around with. Having to explain to his friends why you were at their Friday night bonfire one week and gone two weeks later is going to make him look like a total tool to those he's closest to.

3. Have ~deep~ conversations.

Talk about more than just your day or how your semester has been. Ask him about his biggest fear. Tell him an embarrassing story from your childhood. Really get to know him as a person and learn more about his experiences. Here are 40 questions to give you some ~inspo~

4. DO. NOT. BE. CLINGY.

This is probably the number one thing you need to keep in the back of your mind when approaching this situation. If you come off as clingy, it will send them running without a doubt and ruin not only the potential of a relationship, but also the FWB thing you have going.

5. Make it clear that you're not interested in hooking up with someone else.

Laying it out on the line that you're being exclusive with them will only make them want to be exclusive with you even more. Tell them you're not going to hook up with anyone else and I can promise you they'll rethink how they feel about you.

6. Give him the best sex of his life.

Listen here. Guys like a girl who is good in the bedroom. If you're out there giving him sex that is literally amazing, he's going to be an idiot to NOT want to date you. And if you need to spice up your skills, here are a few good tips to try.

7. Ensure you two spend just as much time together outside of the bedroom as you do in it.

If all you're doing is making out in your bedroom, it's hard to really get to know him and even harder for him to get to know you. Spend just as much time outside of the bedroom as you do in it and I promise eventually a relationship will naturally develop.

8. Take it slow.

Don't rush him into making any decisions because all it's going to do is make him want to say no even faster.

9. Be accepting of what they want, and what they don't.

You can't force this. If you do, it's just going to send him running even faster. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, fuck buddies is all you'll ever be and you'll have to either accept it or let it go.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.

Life Before Emancipation

Contraband Camps in Harpers Ferry

6839

When the Civil War first broke out, the United States Army sought to preserve the Union, and did not have intentions on interfering with the institution of slavery in the rebellious states. In fact, in his first inaugural address, Abraham Lincoln promised not to interfere with slavery in the places where it already existed. Of course, at the time of this address, Virginia, North Carolina, Arkansas, and Tennessee had yet to secede, so he needed to keep a moderate stance. When the U.S. Army moved into states in rebellion, generals ensured civilians that they would not interfere with slavery, and would even hep quell potential uprisings. On May 22, 1861, this attitude towards slavery began to change. Prior to then, slaves who escaped into Union lines could be returned to their masters. In some cases, troops with more abolitionist leanings would aid the runaways, but it was not yet the norm. However on May 22, three runaway slaves approached Fort Monroe along the James River seeking refuge. The slaves stated that they were about to be sent South to work on the Confederate coastal defenses in the Carolinas. Instead of returning the slaves to their masters, the commander of the fort, Benjamin Butler, claimed the slaves were contraband of war and put them to work in support of the United States. He wrote Winfield Scott, general-in-chief of all federal armies, "Shall [the enemy] be allowed the use of this property against the United States and we not be allowed its use in aid of the United States?" Following Butler's actions, 900 more slaves would gather in Fort Monroe. Congress would back Butler's stance with the First Confiscation Act in August of 1861.

Juneteenth: The Overlooked 'Independence Day'

If we can't celebrate different types of people and rejoice with them in their season of glee and jubilation, then what kind of "land of the free" is this, anyway?

I want to begin this article by saying that I was raised to be about as patriotic as it gets. I was born and bred in the "Bible belt" where we learned to say "thank you for your service" before we could even comprehend what those words truly meant. My father is a highly respected and high-ranking Houston firefighter, and he is following in the footsteps of three prior generations of Houston firefighters within our direct lineage. My maternal grandfather served in the U.S. Army, and I have multiple family members and personal friends who have served and/or are currently serving in our nation's military. And lastly (probably most important), my husband is currently serving as a Sergeant in the U.S. Army, as well. So I think it goes without saying that I have the utmost admiration and respect for public servants and first responders of all kinds.

I love our nation's military and I love this nation. But I am not a blind patriot with my head stuck in the sand. I will always support our troops, but I will very rarely support the ugly wars that we fight (both literal and figurative) across national borders and/or within our own walls.

I will be the first person to admit that this great nation in which we love so dearly is filled with hatred, ugly politics, extreme corruption and institutionalized oppression and racism (just to name a few). I love America and I am grateful that I live here, but I am not blind to America's obvious flaws.

War and political nonsense aside though, I think it is worth noting that America is already great, but let's not be ignorant, America is certainly not the "land of the free" for every race, religion and sexual orientation out there. So let's stop treating it as such. The sooner we can recognize our legitimate internal problems, the better off we will be. Our gullibility is getting us nowhere.
