Why get mad at the other woman?

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.


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.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because Those Hormones Aren't Gonna Balance Themselves

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

It's common knowledge that your hormones impact practically every aspect of your body. Weight gain, acne, mental health... it's all related to your hormonal health. If your life is treating your body like the superstar it is, your endocrine glands should produce the perfect amount of each hormone to keep you running like a well-oiled machine. This is a nice thought, sure. In our current society, even the most balanced person you know may be missing an important aspect of respecting their body. Things like sleep, stress, diet, exercise, and a busy pace of life can throw hormones off balance and negatively impact your general wellbeing. Sometimes these imbalances are noticed right away, while other times they can be smaller — annoying, but not as obvious.

One of the biggest discomforts I initially had with the stay-at-home order was feeling trapped and isolated from what was going on outside the walls of my house. Add that to living in a massive city, where social distancing is nearly impossible when doing something as simple as walking down the street.

I've always been a picture hoarder. No matter what happens with someone or how many pictures I have of the same thing, I hate deleting pictures. They all serve as memories to me, which is something I think is super important.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.


I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Alissa Katz

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.
