10 Signs That Your Boyfriend Is Actually Your Best Friend

10 Signs That Your Boyfriend Is Actually Your Best Friend

Just as Hannah Montana said, "You get the best of both worlds"

Before I was in a relationship, I found it so weird that girls and guys found their SO their best friend. Now that I am in one for almost a year I realized that I look at my boyfriend as more than just my boyfriend. He's my absolute best friend, I figured that out so quickly into the relationship.

1. You call him with all of your "girl drama"

He could honestly probably care less about what you and your girlfriends are fighting about today, but he'll listen because he loves you. He'll probably give you some cute advice that will make you smile because he's just so "cute" when he tries to help. It's nice to always have someone on your side. (Hint: It's always nice to have a boyfriend to tell because he's a boy and won't tell your friends about anything because again, he probably could care less.)


2. You let one loose around him.

You know exactly what I'm talking about- a FART. Farting is probably the most anticipated event in a relationship (besides the first kiss). But, take it from me, letting the first one go is always the most awkward but once you fart, you never go back. You'll probably find your inner first grader and crack up every time you hear a "toot".


3. He's your ideal shopping partner!

You always call your boo to come to the mall with you to help you find the perfect outfit for the weekend. He's always the first one, to be honest about what outfits he likes best or just talk you into buying all three!! He wouldn't want his baby walking around looking a mess!


4. He's basically a part of your family!

Remember when you were 12 and you were allowed to bring a friend on vacation and such, and you always picked your best friend? Well, now that you're older you always pick him in accompanying you and your family on vacation or at dinner. Your family loves him, and at family parties, he's always seen dancing the night away with your mom and dad!


5. You'd prefer hanging out with him doing absolutely nothing rather than doing anything else.



You love when he invites you to his house or offers to spend the night at yours because it's probably the purest form of fun ever. You always have fun together no matter what it is. And of course, when it's time to part your ways you're found tugging on his leg in tears begging him not to go.


6. You don't always have to look "flawless" in front of him during those preferred hangouts.

End up having a sleep over? Waking up with no makeup on doesn't even phase you both. Even just hanging out in each other houses doesn't call for an hour of makeup. You simply just walk out the door and he'll make you feel absolutely flawless either way.


7. You're so comfortable with each other's weirdness that embarrassment isn't a thing.


I mean he's your best friend, nothing that you can possibly say or do is embarrassing and you never feel judged when you're around him. Whether you're just cracking stupid jokes or dancing like a weirdo, you can always expect him to join or tell you you're stupid and laugh anyway.


8. You don't need words to judge people


You simply just look at each other and chances are that you're thinking exactly what each other is thinking.


9. He brings out the best in you.

He literally can change your mood from a 0 to 100 so quick. He can make you feel better when your sick with just a kiss on the cheek or being there when you need him. He gives the best advice and cuddles on your worst days.


10. Your fights are probably over picking a place to eat or what to watch.

...and you can get over them in seconds. You're the king and queen of compromises and talking things out. Like going to Wendy's for dinner so you don't have to get dressed up or pay too much.

I’ve Been Both 8 Hours And 8 Minutes Away From My Boyfriend, And Trust Me, Distance Sucks

Distance truly does make the heart grow fonder... and work harder.

87

In the two and a half years that I've been with my boyfriend, we've done our fair share of distance including living eight hours away from each other, living one hour away from each other, and living exactly 10 minutes down the road from each other (eight minutes if you manage to hit every light on green).

Because we've literally done it all and know it first hand, I assumed that everyone else was on the same page as we were: the longer the distance, the harder things are. Apparently, I was mistaken as I stumbled upon this article, claiming that people who are in short distance relationships have it just as hard as people in long relationships.

I'm sorry... what?

First of all, let me say that if you have never been in a relationship with a significant amount of distance between you and your partner (and I'm talking more than an hour), you definitely don't get it. You definitely do not understand having so spend either a full day in the car or a full paycheck on airfare to see your significant other. You don't understand having to account for the time difference between you two when calling each other. You don't understand the feeling of knowing that the person who means the most to you is creating memories every day that you'll never be included in.

And I'm not even going to get into the amount of trust that you need to have...

I understand that even in short distance no matter how close you live to one another, you will never be with each other 24/7 (at least you shouldn't be, because you both need space) and you will inevitably miss each other the second one of you leaves. Missing somebody even after a few minutes and miles between the two of you is a valid feeling. And yes, missing somebody is incredibly hard, even if it is just in a short distance relationship.


The difference is that you'll likely see your significant other again in a day or two. When you say goodbye you know that it's only temporary and that missing them will be over within a few days when you're reunited. In a short distance relationship, you don't have to experience the agony that comes along with missing someone for weeks upon weeks on end and spending each day obsessively checking your mental countdown until you get to see your other half again.


By no means does long distance make the love more real and by no means does short distance mean that you two have a stronger bond by being able to see each other every day. Both types of relationships require real love and real feelings of missing each other. But don't you dare belittle my long distance relationship by saying you have it just as hard and miss your boyfriend just as much. Until you have experienced living hours away and no longer having the luxury of being with each other whenever you want, you'll never understand how distance truly does make the heart grow fonder and work harder.

Take Note from Ari and Pete’s Breakup: You Can’t Rush Timing In Relationships

Sometimes in relationships, timing is everything.

According to TMZ, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have officially split, and sadly I can't say that I didn't see this coming.

It seems as though ever since they announced their engagement in June, there has been a whirlwind of controversy surrounding their abrupt relationship. At first people were head over heels in love with the pairing because of Pete's big dick energy. Then things quickly went downhill not too long after his joke about the Manchester bombings at Ariana's concert last year resurfaced. I could easily talk about all the questionable things Pete has said or done that may have caused their breakup—but I think there's a more important lesson we could take into consideration from this. Sometimes in relationships, timing is everything.

Not much has been reported about their breakup other than the fact that it was supposedly "not the right time" for their relationship to continue, but can you blame them? Besides, it usually takes several months before you can truly say you know someone. Even then it's still hard to tell who a person truly is until you've been living with them for a while. Considering they practically got engaged within weeks of casually dating, I'd say that their relationship escalated pretty quickly. I can't judge their decision and say it was stupid, but part of me feels like maybe Ariana didn't truly know what she was getting herself into when they got engaged so fast.

For starters, she had already just gotten out of a long-term relationship with late Mac Miller which she described as a "toxic" relationship. Maybe she could have used more time to heal after that breakup. Also, maybe if she and Pete had waited a little longer before getting so serious then she would have reacted differently to some red flags of Pete's immature tendencies and very obscene humor. Part of me wants to give him the benefit of the doubt because he's a comedian and therefore most likely uses jokes as a way to cope with serious stuff. However, when it gets to the point that Ariana has a mental breakdown via Twitter after being publicly groped at a funeral by a pastor and not even a full week later has to deal with thousands of people blaming her for the death of her ex-boyfriend then that's when you know she needs a rock to lean for a boyfriend rather than a goofball.

But like I said before, this isn't one of those situations where we can go through a list of Pete's shortcomings and blame him for the downfall of the relationship. Relationships are a lot like flowers. Even when they seem like the most beautiful thing on earth, they still need a solid foundation to grow upon, and that solid foundation starts with ideal timing. If you truly want to find the one you're meant to be with, it's not something you can rush into.
