7 Reasons Being Best Friends With Your Boyfriend Is Undeniably The BEST
Bree Moran

Have you ever just met that one person in your life and the two of you have an instant connection and then suddenly the two of you become two peas in a pod?

Well, that's exactly the beginning of my relationship with my boyfriend. I have never clicked so well with anyone. Most people will say your boyfriend shouldn't be your best friend but I have to strongly disagree with that statement! I think it is very healthy when a relationship starts out as best friends and then leads to a relationship. I thought of the many reasons I love that my boyfriend and best friend are the same person, and here they are:

1. It builds a very strong base for the relationship.

As I've dated in the past I've realized that the reason why other things didn't work out with other people is because we didn't have a lot in common and we really didn't know each other that well before getting into a boyfriend and girlfriend situation! I notice that taking things slow and becoming friends first really helps build that first strong layer to the relationship.

2. You can earn each other's trust through friendship.

I truly feel that trust is one of the biggest factors in the relationship. When you start out as friends, you really start to gain trust from each other because you start spending a lot of time together and you start to see that person's true colors.

3. You start to gain a healthy level of respect.

I truly feel like relationships cannot work if there isn't a healthy level of respect between the two of you. Becoming friends first will gain that respect towards each other.

4. You get to have "the chase."

When I first met my boyfriend, I didn't exactly know where our relationship was going to end up, so the chase was a big aspect for us because we took our time getting to know each other. The chase is always a fun way to start a relationship!

5. You'll bond easier as a couple.

When the two of you start out as friends, you're finding out all of their likes, dislikes, pet peeves, and so on! Once you become an actual couple it'll be easier for the two of you to bond on things together because you already know what the other person is into.

6. You learn to value each other.

Relationships are great, but are they worth it if the other person doesn't value you? You should want to value all that the other person has to offer you in your relationship! They are human, not an object! Starting out as friends will definitely help with that.

7. You'll try new things together.

Trying new things together will also strengthen the bond between you two. It will also push the two of you out of your comfort zone and you'll see new sides of each other!

bruce springsteen album cover born in the usa

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.
