Why Every Woman Should Have A Gay Best Friend

Oh, You Don’t Have A Gay BFF? I’m Sorry

From dude advice to making me laugh at literally everything.


It's always nice to have your go-to best friend (s) for advice and to be there for you whatever it may be, but having a gay best friend is a specialty.

Every day I am either texting, Snapchatting, Facetiming, or Twitter direct messaging my best friend Mason. I don't know what it is but he could say ANYTHING and I laugh hysterically. We mostly joke about how our lives are beyond stressful and our love lives in general.

Mason is so funny that he went viral on Twitter once

Whenever I need a personal hype-man, I call Mason. Whenever I need the approval of posting a selfie in the new outfit Mason encouraged me to buy, I call Mason. He is the perfect combination of the devil and angel on my shoulder

Don't get me wrong, my other friends do all the same for me, but I take Mason's opinion to heart the most. If I look like an absolute wreck, he will tell me. If I'm having a good day and look like Britney Spears, he will tell me.

Whenever I overthink a text from the male species, Mason is the person I reach out to in order to decipher the coded message as if he knows the password. I mean he is a dude too, so it's nice to get his perspective on things. (Even if he might lie to make me feel better sometimes, it's ok I do it too.)

If I'm having a mental breakdown and my eyeliner is down to my chin, and I'm sobbing uncontrollably about something so petty, you guessed it right, I call Mason.

I get exciting news that's work-related or Billie Joe Armstrong (lead singer of Green Day) finally comes to his senses and asks to marry me? You guessed it, I call Mason.

Mason is the most non-judgmental person I have ever met and is so caring for others. I know that if I needed him he would drop what he's doing and rush to see me.

So, if you are looking to have a person that will always be there for you, or need to plot revenge on someone, or tell you their honest opinion about how a dress just doesn't work for you, you need to a Mason. You can't have mine though, get your own.

How I Came To The Realization That I Was Bi

Sometimes you don't always know who you are, but when you know, you know.


Growing up, I knew that I liked boys and I never had to question that. I remember my first crush, my teen heartthrobs, and even my odd obsession with Brendan Fraser. Maybe it was because I thought that was what I was "supposed" to feel. When you are a little girl, you are constantly asked what boy you had a crush on or if you had a boyfriend. It's like society is embedding in you at a young age that you have only one option.

It wasn't until I got to college that I started to question whether boys were my only choice. It started off like most cliche college movies do, with a party. I saw a girl kiss another girl and I was jealous. I wanted that to be me and I didn't know why. I always thought that girls were pretty but I never thought anything more of it. I never tried to think anything more of it, because I didn't think it was a possibility. Not until that night. You see, you never think something is possible for you until you see people like you doing that thing.

I found my eyes lingering on girls a little bit longer than usual and truly admiring them as I did boys before. At parties, I would make out with girls just for "fun," because that's what everyone did. That was until finally, I met a girl that seemed to really like me. I pursued her, thinking that she actually was interested in me. It was exciting and I was feeling a way that I never felt before. Then after a while, she told me she wasn't really gay and I felt heartbroken, betrayed even. I've never felt the sting of unrequited feelings from a girl before. I knew then that I was bi. I knew that what I felt was real and a few days later, I told my friends and then I told my mom. It felt as though I was finally sure of who I was and what was possible for me in life.

I still struggled with figuring out who I was after that and constantly found myself sliding up and down the sexuality spectrum. Though as a grew older, I realized that it's okay to be bi. It's okay to feel whatever I am feeling because that is me and I am just fine the way I am.
