Ladies lest face it, sometimes we all hate and love being a woman! We love to be women because we do get a lot more leniency than men. But, we also have to deal with emotional and physical problems that men don't have. So sit back, relax, and learn about the good the bad and the ugly.

1. PERIODS

Alright ladies and gents, you knew it was going to come up and I made it the first topic on purpose. Women are emotional creatures, but it doesn't get any worse then when it is "mother natures" time for us. That's right... PERIODS. We are allowed to be emotional because we are are fertile and our uterus is still in check. END OF STORY

2. The need for attention

We crave for attention. Even when we say we want to be alone we are wishing that someone was with us that could comfort us in our times of need. When girls say "I'm fine" we REALLY aren't and that's coming from a girls point of view. So men, next time a girl comes up to talk to you and is engaging in a conversation either talk to them or let them down easy... we don't want to wait for nothing!

3. Getting things that we want... and fast

Whether these "things" be materialistic, emotional, or even physical. WE WANT WHAT WE WANT... AND IMMEDIATELY! We are very impatient, even though we might say we aren't. We definitely use the female card when we can, especially when it comes to free drinks, discounts, and men!

4. Falling in love fully

Women are suckers for love. We love romantic movies, simple gestures, cute caring people, and falling in love with the right person! We tend to use every part of our body when we fall for someone that we are and love for. It is very draining for us, but we overcompensate because we would rather experience this chance in life.

5. Knowing your body and emotions as you get older

I feel like your mom is always the person you went to as you grew and your body changed. She helped you shave your legs, with your period problems, cramping, heartbreaks, and love. I still to this day, at the age of 23, text or call my mom and ask her for advice about a guy or if I am thinking something is wrong with my body. They will always be there for you but, at the end of the day, you're the one who knows your best!

6. Crying... all the time

When we get periods, we are always emotional. Even when we aren't though we still cry and that's totally okay. I cry over romantic movies, dog movies, school, homework, boys, girl drama, work struggles, and everything else in my life that I am forgetting. Just except yourself for who you are. Be raw and one with yourself; never apologize for being emotional.

7. Close friendships with your girlfriends

You need those amazing girlfriends around you that hype you up and give you badass compliments! They are always going to be there for you even if you have a silly fight or decide you want to "be alone" some nights. Close friendships are a must, especially in your 20's, because we have so many emotions and s#!t happening.

8. Getting hurt easily

No woman ever wants to hear the cliche "we need to talk" or the breakup conversation. It hurts our hearts to see others in so much pain, sometimes. But, in this situation we never want the other person to be held up in something that they don't want to be in. As my mom told me, "You want be with with the other person because they make you happy, but you are not in charge of their happiness".

9. Questioning our existence CONSTANTLY

I can relate to this number more than any other, Girls are very self-conscious and are always on our own asses to be the epitome of "perfect". Girls lets face it, we always judge ourselves and will never stop, even if we are happy. "My thighs are too big, I have acne, I'm getting fat, He's too good for me". Stop thinking these things because confidence is sexy, stop questioning it!

10. Kicking the world's ass one day at a time

Although we are faced with all of these setbacks in the world we are still able to wake up in the morning and kick the world's ass. Everyday is a new days and we have the chance to impact our lives for the better. Think positively, love yourself (emotionally and physically), and to just be a bitchin' chick!

Even though being a girl is difficult we are still some of the strongest people I know. Somedays can be difficult but like I said above be grateful to be alive and healthy. Fight for who you want to be and what you think a woman deserves to be known as. Be proud to be a woman even though we have a lot of crap to take in on a daily basis. I hope this empowers you to go out into the world with a positive attitude.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.

4782

I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
