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?

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.


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.
