6 Signs Your Boyfriend Is Also Your Best Friend

6 Signs Your Boyfriend Is Also Your Best Friend

He is always down for a rom-com and ice cream.

I have always dreamed to find a guy who will love me for who I am and will treat me with respect and kindness. I have always looked for someone who will laugh at my jokes (even if they are terrible) and will not run away from me when I am not wearing makeup. Most of all I have always wanted a boyfriend who I can also call my best friend.

This means that he will always have your back and he will tell you if you look terrible in that outfit. He is not going to replace your girlfriends, but he is just going to be at your side with them and support you through thick and thin. Here are 6 signs your boyfriend is also your best friend:

1. You can't wait to tell him all the drama.

When something scandalous happens, my boyfriend is the first person I go to. I love gossiping with him and just keeping him updated on the drama going on in my life. He always listens to me without complaining and I think he secretly enjoys our conversations.

2. He is your favorite person to spend time with.

Going to the movies, ice skating, or getting Whataburger at 3 a.m. is always fun if my boyfriend is with me. I would choose a movie night with pizza with him over a crazy night at the club and I just love spending time with him because he makes every day a new adventure.

3. He is always down to help you with anything.

My boyfriend gives me rides to go to the grocery store, the post office, and church. He always says "yes" when I need a favor, and I know I can count on him. From helping me to calculate my grades to carrying my suitcase, my boyfriend is always there for me.

4. He gives you great advice.

When I need an honest opinion I ask my boyfriend. He is like an encyclopedia and he seems to know everything. When I need advice about my future plans, work, school, or friends, my boyfriend always gives me some wise words. He is just the perfect life advisor.

5. He is your partner in crime.

My boyfriend agreed to do three different couple costumes for Halloween. He is just the peanut butter to my jelly, the bacon to my eggs, the cream to my bagel and the fries my burger. We understand each other with just a look and we make the perfect duo.

6. He loves you for your imperfections

He knows everything about you and still loves you. You can be as annoying as you want and he is still stick around. That's what best friends do. They accept you for who you are and you feel absolutely comfortable around them.

Why Girls Love The Dad Bod

If your man can rock the dad bod, he's a keeper.


In case you haven't noticed lately, girls are all about that dad bod.

Girls have been dealing with body image issues since the beginning of time until recent (for those of you who consider yourselves to be "Thick thin") I hadn't heard about this body type until my roommate mentioned it. She used to be crazy over guys she claimed had the dad bod.

After observing the guys she found attractive, I came to understand this body type well and was able to identify it. The dad bod is a nice balance between a beer gut and working out. The dad bod says, "I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time." It's not an overweight guy, but it isn't one with washboard abs, either.

The dad bod is a new trend and fraternity boys everywhere seem to be rejoicing. Turns out skipping the gym for a few brews last Thursday after class turned out to be in their favor. While we all love a sculpted guy, there is just something about the dad bod that makes boys seem more human, natural, and attractive. Here are a few reasons that girls are crazy about the dad bod.

It doesn't intimidate us.
Few things are worse than taking a picture in a bathing suit, one being taking a picture in a bathing suit with a guy who is crazy fit. We don't want a guy that makes us feel insecure about our body. We are insecure enough as it is. We don't need a perfectly sculpted guy standing next to us to make us feel worse.

We like being the pretty one.
We love people saying "they look cute together." But we still like being the center of attention. We want to look skinny and the bigger the guy, the smaller we feel and the better we look next to you in a picture.

Better cuddling.
No one wants to cuddle with a rock. Or Edward Cullen. The end.

Good eats.
The dad bod says he doesn't meal prep every Sunday night so if you want to go to Taco Tuesday or $4 pitcher Wednesday, he'd be totally down. He's not scared of a cheat meal because he eats just about anything and everything.

You know what you're getting.
Girls tend to picture their future together with their guys early on. Therefore, if he already has the dad bod going on, we can get used to it before we date him, marry him, have three kids. We know what we are getting into when he's got the same exact body type at the age of 22 that he's going to have at 45.

So there you go. A simple break down of why girls everywhere are going nuts over this body type on males. We like it. We love it. We want some more of it. So here's to you dad bods, keep it up. Men, confidently strut that gut on the beach because while you stare at us in our bikinis we will be staring just as hard.

Being Single Is More Refreshing Than pretending to like a chai Tea latte

Independence is a queen's best accessory.


Being single does not have to be a bummer. It can help you refresh, recharge, and help you to reevaluate where you are (we love a queen that wants to move forward).

There is a lot to gain from being single although your first instinct may be to find another human to share your time with. Little do you know the person you probably need the most to fill your time is you.

When you are single you get to be selfish, and yes, I mean you get to "do you" always, Jam out to Cardi B's "Best Life" and do whatever floats your boat because there is no one that you need to (pretend to) care for and fulfill the needs of. The only needs that you need to fill are your own. More needs mean more problems, ya know what I'm saying?

Living your best life becomes the new daily grind because you have more time to focus on your goals, who you want to become, and how you are going to get yourself there.

Reborn is someone who has learned how to lean on themselves when they are in trouble or have a problem. Soon, the world begins to open up and independence becomes your new favorite accessory. You have learned how to do things on your own and feel that having someone else there might stop you from moving forward (could you have finessed a free business law textbook from the boy on the third floor if you were in a relationship? Most likely no, you wouldn't have met him).

Maybe a significant other wouldn't be stopping you from growing, but you surely don't need their help and support to move forward. You have that covered yourself. Let's be real, Coco Chanel changed women's fashion single. So, who says you need a significant other to find success?

Becoming your own best friend is quite possibly the best thing to come out of being single.

A best friend will love you, fight for you, want the best for you, and will remind you of how awesome and strong you are. When you're single you have to be you're biggest hype man and learn how to be your own advocate. When you take this role on for yourself, confidence ensues and all of a sudden we have a reinvented bad bitch on our hands ready to take the world by storm.

If someone happens to come into said bad bitches life, she might let them stay and if she does, they will compliment her life because being single has shown her that she is complete on her own.

Ultimately, being single is necessary for the "Happily ever after," whatever that means for you.

Focusing on yourself reminds you what you want and what you never want to settle for. Gone are the days of getting a chai tea latte on dates because you think they send a cool, edgy, not trying too hard vibe. Hello, are the days of getting a vanilla latte because it's your favorite drink and it sends a "you" vibe, something that being single revealed.
