15 Things Boyfriends Will Never Understand, Even With Color-Coded Diagrams And Detailed Instructions

15 Things Boyfriends Will Never Understand, Even With Color-Coded Diagrams And Detailed Instructions

12. Why we need to wear glitter even though it just gets everywhere.

So as I was writing this at 2:00 a.m. and talking with my boyfriend, we were trying to brainstorm ideas of what I should write about. We began debating back and forth about something stupid and this topic became the resolution of this silly bickering: there are just some things your boyfriend (or at least mine) will probably, most likely never really understand about you.

We compiled a list of 15 things boyfriends will just never understand.

1. Emotional attachment to your clothes (and/or boyfriends clothes).

Sometimes, it's just necessary to wear that shirt two days in a row because you just love it that much. Maybe you just really have to have his sweatpants even though you have probably 10 pairs of your own, but it's just not the same, you know?

What is your weird obsession with that bra? Tbh I don't really know either... Oh, by the way, you're never getting that sweatshirt back, sorry!!!

2. Importance of calendar dates.

Why do you know that December 21st, 2013 is the day you got your braces out? Or that October 16th is National Boss's Day?

Did you know you texted me for the first time on October 31st, 2013?? Well, you did.

3. Our spiritual connection to and utter obsession with dogs and other fluffy animals.

I really don't think I need to explain this one. Who the heck doesn't like fluffy little creatures that just love forever?? No one, that's who.

4. Yes, heels look so good, but they hurt so bad.

Why would you spend THAT much on a pair of shoes that you end up taking off 30 minutes in?? Where's the logic? Beauty is pain, I guess. Right?

5. What it's like to put on/take off makeup.

Want to watch yourself go from a solid 4 to a possible 7? Just paint your face real quick!! Want to go back to a 4? Just take it all off real fast.

6. Why we shed (we really don't know either).

I mean it just kinda happens. It's still a mystery, and forever will be.

7. Why we are always late.

Are we absolutely positive we're feeling this outfit right now? Why does my hair look like I just woke up? I was supposed to leave 5 minutes ago but I just have to change this shirt really quick. It'll be fine.

*shows up 45 minutes late*

8. We secretly like Fortnite, too.

It really isn't that horrible. If you play just one time, you'll most likely be addicted too, believe me. Just trust the system.

9. What it's like to friggin' bleed out of your crotch for a week.

Horrible, miserable, exhausting, awful, terrible, very very bad. I think that covers the gist of it.

10. Why we feel the need to scream every song that comes on the radio.

You like this song? Great, I don't but I'll definitely scream it as obnoxiously as I possibly can to

1. make myself laugh because I'm just THAT funny and

2. Annoy the living crap out of you. So really it's a win-win here, right?

11. Why we must ALWAYS take a picture of our food before we eat it.

It's just so satisfying that you have to take a photo to show the world this magnificent concoction you're about to devour in the next 30 seconds. It's basically free advertising for the company too!!

12. Why we need to wear glitter even though it just gets everywhere.

It's friggin' GLITTER. What do you mean, "why?"

13. How we will argue every fact ever even though we know we're wrong.

Okay, but why would I let you win? That honestly does not makes sense. I'll pull facts out of thin air if it means I'll win.

14. Every time we do win, you'll never hear the end of it.

Well I mean we did win, which means you lost. Which also means you have to be reminded just in case I lose next time because remember that one time when I won?

15. Why we post things on social media.

Honestly, I don't even know but it's fun and slightly competitive so why the heck not?

11 Things The Man You Love Should Do For You, No Questions Asked

Sometimes it's just the simple things in life that mean a lot.


Every girl feels special when the guy she's dating does simple things for her that not everyone thinks about. Here's a list of 10 things that every girl genuinely appreciates.

1. Open/Hold the door

I feel like this one is really simple because everyone has to walk through doors. Chivalry isn't dead, let him open the door for you. He's not trying to prove that you can't do it for yourself, but he's trying to be polite and show you that he cares for you.

2. Give you really big hugs

Everyone has bad days, and sometimes you just need a really big hug. Whether it be a bear hug or the hug where he picks you up and spins you around, it will make you feel better in the long run.

3. Buy you really small gifts

One of the best things my boyfriend has ever done for me is simply bringing me a Dr. Pepper when he knows I'm tired from a long hard day full of exams or work. Sonic slushes will also make my day in a heartbeat.

4. Text/Call you just to tell you he loves you

This is pretty simple. It takes less than 10 seconds to text, and only a few minutes to call. Sometimes you get these texts right at the perfect moment, and it makes you feel so much better.

5. Come see you when you're sick

Everyone hates being sick. But seeing your friends and family while you're sick can make you feel so much better. Having your boyfriend come to see you and possibly even take care of you just makes being sick that much easier.

6. Respect your decisions

You're not married yet, so your decisions are up to you! He should respect the decisions you make and support you, even if it's not what he thinks is the best decision. After all, you know yourself better than anyone else!

7. Give you a shoulder to cry on

We all have bad days, and sometimes you just can't stop the tears from coming. Even if he's not good with crying, he should give you hugs and love to help you get through it.

8. Compliment you

Even if you look horrible and know so, hopefully, he'll still tell you that you look good. Even if the clothes you're wearing aren't his style, he should still tell you that they look good on you and that you are beautiful each and every day.

9. Call you when you're away or he's away

If you're like me, I miss my boyfriend after being away for about three hours, so when we're apart for more than a couple days, I love getting random calls from him when he knows I'm not busy. It's definitely better than a text.

10. Deal with all your annoying quirks

So if you're anything like me, you enjoy screaming music as loudly and horribly as you can in the car and making a complete fool of yourself, but he should love you for that anyway. I also love to take really stupid pictures, and he should put up with that too. He shouldn't be annoyed by your quirks, he should love them and laugh along with you.

11. Love you no matter what

I honestly feel like this goes without saying, but I put it on here so that the girls who don't feel like they're being loved no matter what can realize. He should want to work out problems with you instead of calling it quits and holding a grudge. He should want you to be happy and support you in every decision you make in life. When he loves you unconditionally, he will do all of the above things and more.

If You View Being In A Relationship As 'Losing Your Freedom,' You’re In The Wrong Relationship

Someone had to say it.


Relationships are about being the best possible version of yourself separate and together. They're about growing with and doing life alongside your partner. They're fun, loving, and granted, they can sometimes be challenging.

Some challenges that frequently come up in relationships are disagreements (which are for sure gonna happen, because you're two individual people!), dealing with stress, and depending on where you're at in life, it could also be financial struggles. Of course, all relationships are going to have problems and everything won't always be “rainbows and butterflies" as Maroon 5 like to put it.

That being said though, one challenge that shouldn't ever be an issue in a relationship is the loss of freedom. Where did this idea come from?

I see it all the time, people talking about not wanting to get into a relationship because they don't want to "lose their freedom".

If you are in a relationship which causes you to lose your freedom, you are 100% in the wrong relationship.

Being in a relationship is not synonymous with not being able to be yourself or be able to do what you want. In a good relationship, you will be able to still have your alone time, be your own person, hang out with your friends, the list goes on and on. All of these things are so important. Relationships should never consume your life, they should complement it.

Why is this even a conversation we need to be having? Seriously.

Now obviously if you're referring to losing the option of getting with other people or dating around, then yes, you're right, you absolutely shouldn't get into a relationship... but that doesn't mean relationships mean losing your freedom.

If you are in a relationship with someone you love and respect, getting with other people isn't even going to be on your radar. It truly is that simple.

The trend of hating on relationships, for this reason, has gotten so out of hand in recent years, especially on social media. It's so frustrating, though, because it could not be any more inaccurate.

You should absolutely still have freedom in relationships. You can have it. I for one absolutely have it and do not view my relationship as the loss of freedom, at all. If you don't, maybe evaluate that relationship and realize it's not the best one to be in.
