7 Things To Remember If Your Girlfriend Is A Drama Queen

7 Things To Remember If Your Girlfriend Is A Drama Queen

The things that you're too afraid to point out, because I'll probably overreact.

I'm more dramatic than the women on soap operas, and I overreact to everything. Somehow you look past it, and you love me anyway. Here's an article for YOU expressing exactly what you want to say, but you are too afraid to say it because I might overreact.

1. I overreact to everything.

I know that whatever that girl said about me wasn't a big deal. I will never say anything to her face because I'm too nice to start fights. I will, however, go on about it to you for at least three weeks. I'll do it because I can confide in you (and you're the only one who doesn't complain about my complaining). Take it as a compliment.

2. I cry... a lot.

I know how uncomfortable you get when my voice gets all pinched and tears start welling up in my eyes. I know that in that instant you feel helpless because I am crying about something that is completely out of your control. I am probably crying because I'm stressed out, or the barista got my drink wrong AGAIN. I'm crying because I feel safe around you, and I know that you can make it better (you always do).

3. My laugh is obnoxious.

When something is funny to me everyone knows. I have this hysterical belly laugh that cannot be mistaken. Sometimes you laugh along with me, and sometimes you're probably secretly waiting for it to stop (or waiting for a passive-aggressive text from your roommate). Either way, I'm going to laugh it out eventually, and if it's funny enough I'll laugh about it later, too.

4. I need attention.

I'm like a puppy, but you didn't have to teach me where to pee. I'm always sitting with my legs across your lap, or trying to hold your hand in the car. This is partly due to my insecurity, and partly due to the fact that I want attention 24/7. Your attention (and Starbucks) is what gets me through my day.

5. I'm easily offended.

*Rolls over and faces the opposite direction*

When you say something that offends me (in the slightest) I'm going to act like you just said you hated me. This goes hand-in-hand with my need for attention. I'll pretend to be mad at you only to let up once you do something cute or apologize. Aren't I stubborn?

6. I overly express my positive feelings.

I often have negative feelings because I am a worry wart. So, when I have positive feelings I shout them to the world. I tell you "I love you" almost four times a day, I Tweet about you nonstop, and I tell everyone how awesome you are. Do you see a trend here? You are the most positive thing in my life. So, here's an explanation for why I tweeted a picture of the teddy bear that you bought me.

7. Drama queens are often perfectionists.

If something isn't perfect, I'm the first person to point it out. I'm very quick to point out flaws in anything. If my grade in a class turns out to be 89, I'm probably going to cry. If someone is wearing navy blue shorts with a black shirt, I'm going to point it out. If your apartment is a mess, I'm going to try to clean it. Though you probably aren't offended by the last one (and your roommate probably isn't either), I felt as though I had to explain myself.

Dating a drama queen definitely has its pros and cons. You somehow look past the cons and love me for the pros. If you are reading this article right now, just know that I'm probably about to ask you to get off your phone and pay attention to me.

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.
