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?

31 One-Liners You Say To Your Boyfriend Before, After And During The Sunday Scaries Hit

Sunday scaries are much more intense that we like to believe.


Ah Friday. The blessed day of the week that kicks off the wonderful weekend. You have it planned where you are going to tackle everything on your to do list. You're going to clean, you're going to do laundry and even have a special date night with your boo. Maybe even grab a couple drinks with some friends. No matter what, you are not letting the weekend go to waste. Then, before you know it,

Sunday hits.

It's as if the second you went to bed Friday night (or Saturday morning, I won't judge) it immediately skips over Saturday and you are left with one single day to get everything done. The Sunday scaries are real and if you feel the stress that comes with them, you've probably said these one-liners to your boyfriend at some point during the weekend.


1. "Sunday scaries are a joke!"

2. You think just because it's 2 a.m. Sunday morning that we can't have another drink?"

3. "Babe, the laundry will get done, we have all weekend!"

4. "Let's go out with our friends tonight! We have plenty of time to clean the kitchen."

5. "What do you mean we should go home? It's not even midnight!"

6. "But, what if I never get a chance to sing "Man, I Feel Like A Woman" at a karaoke bar again!?"

7. "Oh don't worry, I'm not going to let the Sunday scaries stress me out!"

8. "I won't have a hangover tomorrow!"

9. "I'm a perfectly capable adult!"



11. "What do you mean I sang karaoke until 2 in the morning? I don't even like karaoke!"

12. "I had, HOW many drinks?"

13. "Babe, we NEED to get laundry done."

14. "Why is this house such a mess?"

15. "Why didn't you stop me?!"

16. "Please clean the bathroom, my head hurts too much."

17. "No, I do NOT have a hangover!"

18. "Baby, can we pleaseeee take a nap?" *Says while crying*

19. "I just wanted to have ONE *sobs* GOOD *sobs* NIGHT."

20. *blows nose in boyfriends shirt*"We have NO time to get anything done!"

21. "I'm never going out again!"

22. "I can't adult!"


23. "Well, I guess it wasn't THAT bad.."

24. "I mean, we made some progress, we have clean underwear!"

25. "I can see the floor, I think we did a lot today."

26. "You know what would be a great idea? Drinks."

27. "Can we order buffalo wings for dinner?"

28. "I still don't think I was that drunk."

29. "The Sunday scaries did NOT get me."

30. "We should do this again next weekend!"

31. "Adulting is easy!"

Now That I'm About To Graduate, I Wish 'College Freshman Me' Knew These 7 Things About Love

Remember the love. Measure in love. Measure your life in love.

Dr King
Dr King

December 7th, 2018, is the date that I along with over 2,000 students at UNC-Greensboro have been waited for quite literally for years. Now that the graduation ceremony is approximately 9 hours, 25 minutes, and 4 seconds away I can't help but lie awake in anticipation while reflecting on the different relationships I've had over the past four years no matter how impactful or minor.

I think if I could go back into the past to tell 18-year-old self from freshman year some lessons about love, here are 7 things I would say.

1. It’s okay to play the field

Until you actually find the person you want to be with, it's okay to date multiple people. I feel like women especially have a tendency to put all their eggs in one basket even before things get too serious. Some people are naturally more of the relationship and that's fine, but I wish I had known not to be too loyal to guys too soon before anything was clearly established.

2. But don’t play the field to the point where it bites you in the ass

Ladies, it should be a no-brainer that if you're going to talk to a few people at once, at least make sure they aren't in the same friend group. At a time it wasn't as much of a no-brainer for me though. There has only been one time where I purposely talked to multiple guys at once as if I was on a dating show like "The Bachelorette." If I could go back and warn myself to be smarter about the situation I would, seeing as I didn't have enough sense at the time not to chat with half the guys living on the same floor in the dorm that we all lived in. At the time I felt like it was pretty harmless, but eventually, I found that quite a few of them were salty about it.

3. Even “good guys” can have trash tendencies

Sometimes you'll be involved with a "good guy" because he's seemingly different than the rest. He may not be as tall as the other guys or have as muscular of a physique, but you know deep down that you can be happy with him because you know for certain he'll treat you right. Well, that's not always the case. There have been times where I went for the typical shy guy who didn't really get all of the girls because he was seen as "too nice." Unfortunately, there have been instances when they felt extra entitled to having me just because they were seen as good guys.

4. Sometimes you can literally speak relationships into existence

I am a firm believer that the power of our words is crucial, but now I'm an even more firm believer that our words work in terms of finding a boyfriend as well. One night as I moved into the apartment I stay at now, one of my closest friends stopped by to see me and he brought two of his friends along. I introduced myself to both of them, but I was definitely fixated on the Italian friend. Was it because he has the most distinct greenish/grey eyes I've ever seen? Maybe. However, there was this weird feeling I had that he was going to be my boyfriend which was insane considering that we probably only spoke to each other on no more than three or four occasions that night, one of them being when he asked me if he could use my bathroom. I even told one of my roommates right before I went to bed that night that he was going to be my boyfriend someday. Later my sister and I would see him almost every other week at the same two spots in the library and I would whisper to her, saying "I don't really know that guy and I don't even like him like that yet, but I'm pretty sure we're gonna be boyfriend and girlfriend one day." About six or so months later we started dating for real and not just in my head.

5. Having sex for the first time doesn’t necessarily have to be a negative experience

The first time I had sex was halfway through my junior year in college. Prior to this experience, I had heard all of the worst-case scenarios—"Don't expect it to be great," "It's gonna hurt," and "you're probably going to get attached" are among the top three things I constantly heard. Contrary to what I've heard all those years, my first time having sex was pretty good. I think part of the reason because it wasn't this scheduled thing with a romantic dinner and a movie beforehand or rose petals leading up to the bed at a precise time. It was very laid back and natural.

6. Trying to make your ex jealous may leave you stranded alone in a different state

I've mentioned this situation briefly before, but the only time in my life when I legitimately had a grand scheme to make an ex jealous didn't actually go as planned. I used my magic charm on two MMA coaches and finessed my way on a free trip to one of the MMA events in South Carolina where they would coach their clients. It didn't take long for them to realize I wasn't being genuine. One of the coaches insisted that I wasn't showing him enough affection and the other coach who I rode down to the event with completely went ghost and blocked me. If one of my close friends weren't there as well then I wouldn't have had a ride back home to North Carolina.

7. Chicks over dicks

With all of that being said, whether or not I'm in a full blown relationship or just casually dating someone, I will ALWAYS need my friends more than I need the dick so there's no need to stress over guys when the time I spend with my best girlfriends is the most fulfilling.
