Why BFFs Are Better Than BFs

"Ovaries before bro-varies."

Why BFFs Are Better Than BFs

In the words of the wise Leslie Knope, "Hoes before Bros, Uteruses before Dude-eres and Ovaries before Bro-varies." This idea needs to be taken more seriously. I am a strong believer in this code and I honestly feel like BFFs are better to have than a BF for many reasons.

1. One of the most important relationships you will have, maybe ever

Best friends are like four leaf clovers: hard to find and lucky to have. If you find yourself lucky enough to have a BFF it is wise to remember that your BFFs are and always will be more important than any boyfriend will be. No exceptions.

2. No judging

Just devoured an ungodly amount of food? No biggie. Spent the day watching Netflix? So did they. Haven't showered in a few days? They'll still hug you. BFFs are not here to judge you.

3. Not grossed out by your period

If your BFF is also a girl then they too are unwillingly subscribed to this awful monthly subscription and if they ask if you're on your period it's not a rude insult. You can usually rely on your BFF for an extra tampon in an emergency or to pick you up some from Walgreens. Boyfriends don't usually help in this department.

4. Great for shopping or sharing clothes

Shopping with a friend is a thousand times better than shopping with a guy. They're always willing to put on a fashion show in the dressing room with you. The best part is that they're willing to share the clothes they buy, unlike boys who get annoyed when you want to borrow a sweatshirt

5. Your own social media cheerleader

You can always count on your bestie to like or put a cute comment on anything you put on social media. More often than not they took the pic or are in it with you. You never have to beg to take a pic with them, and posting it doesn't weird them out.

6. You never have to "define the relationship"

I strongly believe in avoiding anything that will be awkward or uncomfortable in any way. Thankfully no awkward talks like "defining the relationship" are involved with having a BFF. Unfortunately, it is involved with boyfriends though and are often not worth how awkward it will be.

7. They will call you out when you are acting crazy

Your BFF can call you out when you're being dramatic/bitchy/crazy etc, and you know they mean it. They have your best interests at heart and are usually doing it in order to help you out. When your BF does this it's never as nice.

8. They are always here for you. Always.

Boys will come and go, but your BFF is forever.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
