Please Explain Why You'd Be Mad At The Girl Hooking Up With Your Boyfriend, And Not, YOUR BOYFRIEND

Here's a story showing why that's dumb.

Please Explain Why You'd Be Mad At The Girl Hooking Up With Your Boyfriend, And Not, YOUR BOYFRIEND

This may be a sensitive topic for some people, and I know there are all different types of situations, but hear me out.

Recently, someone very close in my life had a cute looking guy approach her, we'll call him Dick. He complimented her, told her she was one of the most beautiful girls he'd ever seen and he just HAD to come up and meet her. She then asked for his phone number and left feeling giddy and excited. They were chatting for a bit over text, and snapchatting about every day.

She was so excited but of course asked him if he was single and he said: "single as a Pringle" (gross).

So finally the day of their date arrived and she was so excited. They had planned to meet at a restaurant that afternoon after she had gotten out of class, she went straight over, and texted him to let him know. She had been waiting a little long now, so she decided to text him again, but oh wait, the text didn't go through?

Maybe Dick's phone died?

So she went to Snapchat him, but oh, they were no longer friends on Snapchat?


After seeing that she decided to stop waiting at the restaurant, and go home, she had no idea what she had done wrong. (The answer: NOTHING).

Then about a week or so later she gets a sweet and delightful Instagram DM, from none other than Dick's girlfriend! This girlfriend proceeded to go on a rant about how horrible of a person my friend was, for trying to be the other woman, and that she needs to stop contacting her boyfriend, and give up cause he is happy, blah..blah..blah. So here you see a girl that has got to be delusional and incredibly insecure, and this can't be the first time that this has happened either because Dick obviously knew what he was doing -- blocking my friend's number quickly, deleting her on Snapchat, etc.

Now, why on earth get mad at the other girl and not your own man?

I know, of course, there are other situations in which the "other woman" is aware the guy is in a relationship, making them both pieces of shit. BUT if your man is running around, and has clearly been doing it for a while, don't get mad at the girls that he is trying to get with, get mad at your man.

HE is the one you know, HE is the one you decided to be in a relationship with, not this random stranger.

When my friend received this message she felt all sorts of emotions, but the biggest emotion she felt was, pity.

Pity for this girl to not see her own potential to get away from Dick, because clearly that relationship is making her insecure feeling that she has to attack any girl who looks in the direction of her man.

My friend responding with such grace, that the GF even came back apologizing, and saying she's "confused and going through a lot".

So moral of the story, cheating sucks no matter which way you put it but also, have the right productive conversation with the person that you are dating, and from there see if you deserve better.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
