When you date a guy who loves cars, your relationship is NOT a normal relationship. It is always filled with adventure, and there is never a dull moment. This is what happens when the person you love, loves cars just as much as he loves you.

1. You drive everywhere.

Robert Keck

Down the street? Drive. Day trips for the hell of it? He'll be the one driving. Even if it is your car, you're probably going to be sitting bitch.

2. Car meets are a thing.

South Philly Car Meet

Robert Keck

Did anyone know this was a thing? Because before I started dating my boyfriend, I had no idea this was a thing (and it happens often). Yes, all these people just park their cars and everyone talks. It is a sight to see.

3. He will go out of his way to look at someone else's car.

Giphy

He will take an extra turn just to see a car. Any dinner reservations you have better account for the 15-30 minutes out-of-the-way driving.

4. There are a lot of late nights.

Hannah Porter

Whether it is holding the flashlight, or just keeping company, be prepared to be outside for a while. Always bring a coat.

5. There are more pictures of his cars/trucks than you.

Robert Keck

Don't get your panties in a bunch. I honestly have no problem with it. He still has pictures of me, so who cares?

6. He has two loves in his life.

Samantha Wylesol

You, and his car(s).

7. Every other sentence has the word "engine" in it.

Hannah Porter

Do you know how many different types of engines there are? Because I did not. Be prepared to learn about every single one.

8. An absurd amount of money is spent on car parts.

Giphy

Theres nothing more I can say on this matter. Just know it is an absurd amount.

9. You'll drive hours away for a good deal from Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist.

Hannah Porter

One day, we drove three hours for an engine at 9pm at night. It is always something.

10.  "I just need to fix this one thing" does not mean he'll be done in 10 minutes.

Robert Keck

Nothing ever takes 10 minutes. It's a trick.

11.  He'll be the first on the scene when you fuck up.

Hannah Porter

Yea, that happened. Guess who showed up first?

12. You will hear him arrive. Or, you will hear him a few roads down.

Robert Keck

Just wait until he fucks up the exhaust.

13.  There is always something to fix. Nothing is ever done.

Robert Keck

You don't even want to know what is happening here.

14. You will be doing a lot of flat towing and rescues.

Yes, we break down. It happens. You know damn well that he fixes it within the next few days. I have to give him credit, I could never do what he does. I can't wrap my head around it.

15.  Prepare to get "The look" if you drop food in the car.

Cary Porter

Don't risk it.

16.  You learn a ton of new terms.

Hannah Porter

I once did not understand something (actually about the above TransAm), and he pulled out a BLUEPRINT of the car. I still don't know what he talks about half the time.

17. You have your own personal mechanic

Hannah Porter

Guess who learned how to do their own oil and brakes? Anything after that he's going to have to handle. He constantly plugs my tires because I somehow find every nail on the road in Philadelphia.

18.  He holds more knowledge of cars than any other topic

Robert Keck

He is able to see a car and rattle off the make, model, year, engine, and all the other shit that goes along with that. He is able to do that with almost every car...how do you hold all that knowledge?

19.  If he is on his phone, it is guaranteed that he is either on Facebook Marketplace, Youtube looking at car videos, or Instagram looking at car profiles.

Giphy

Plus: he won't be liking other girl's pictures, unless theres a truck in the background.

20.  Whatever you do, DON'T SLAM THE DOOR.

Giphy

I learned this very fast.

21.  Prepare for a lecture if your feet are on the dash.

Hannah Porter

The whole outside of the truck can be muddy, but god forbid there's some dirt on the dash.

22. Cleaning out the car is not just taking the trash out of it.

Giphy

Trash out, tools organized, car washed and waxed, tire shine, carpet vacuumed and shampooed, all seats moved, etc. It is a whole ordeal.

23.  Tools are everywhere.

Giphy

Whatever you need, it will be there in large quantities. Also, let this go along with the ABSURD amount of money that is spent on car stuff. That ratchet in the middle can cost over $150!

24.  Don't open the garage.

Giphy

Just...don't.

25.  He won't go through a car wash.

Robert Keck

Hand wash only. Do not go through the tunnel. It will leave scratches in the paint (obviously).

26. There is always a "project car"...or cars. 

Hannah Porter

My boyfriend at all times has at least 2 project cars, I swear.

27.  Yes, that car has been sitting there for over a year.

Robert Keck

It will be worked on...eventually.

28.  He is a pro-negotiator

Giphy

No one knows money better than your car guy. When it comes to negotiating prices, he is the one you want to bring with you.

29.  Most of his friends are car people, too.

Robert Keck and Jake Ryan

All the car parts, car talk, car pictures, and all the shit that goes with it is doubled or tripled. Wait untill there is a car full of them.

30. He'll do some stupid shit.

Hannah Porter

He'll be fine. You learn not to ask questions anymore.

31.  No matter how much he loves his car, he will always make you a priority and love you unconditionally.

Hannah Porter

I must say, all of this stuff can be a lot to deal with. But when you have the right person in your life, you will enjoy every moment of it. I have never laughed so hard in my life than I have with my car-loving boy. Do not let this discourage you. Date a car guy. It will be one of the best decisions you will make.

17 Things To Do With Noodles Since You’re Single And Not Gettin’ Any Nudes

The limit does not exist

We all have hobbies we do when we're heartbroken—Izzie Stevens from "Grey's Anatomy" baked muffins, hundreds of muffins, Taylor Swift makes record-breaking songs, and other people make pasta. We all know if we could have it carbs would be its own food group, forget protein when there are thousands of things you can do with pasta.

So if you are single and alone and don't know what to do, head to the kitchen, boil some water and get to work.

Here are the things you should do with leftover pasta when you're single:

1. Make A Wig

Justin Timberlake did this with ramen noodles on his head.

2. Bathe in it

If you haven't seen "Patch Adams" you should, but in the end, he makes an old ladies dream come true. She wanted to bathe in a pool of pasta. Ever since seeing this I have wondered what it would feel like. So if you have time and like a zillion boxes of pasta and don't mind the mess, let me know how this works out for you.

3. Make spaghetti tacos

Who else watched "iCarly?" Well if you did you must remember the famous Spaghetti Tacos that was shown throughout the running of the show. Whoever thought mixing Mexican and Italian food would make for a crazy treat?

4. Throw it at the ceiling, let it stick, and try to catch it in your mouth

If it will stick it a wall it will stick to your ceiling. Even though there is a chance it will be stuck up there, there is also a chance it will fall and you are probably hungry. Why else would you be making pasta? Well, just try to catch it with your mouth the worst thing that will happen is that it will fall on your face.

5. Invite your girlfriends over and have a pasta challenge

Everyone loves pasta. So, invite some friends over for a pasta challenge. Everyone makes different dishes, and everyone leaves full! Grab a bottle of wine, eat and drink up!

6. Make rainbow pasta

Time to try out your skills to the test and make rainbow pasta. Have fun with it and make a mess, that's what cooking is all about.

7. Open your own Olive Garden or Fazoli's

So you're probably a master chef by now, so your skills to the test. Take the risk and open a chain restaurant. Feed the people of the world with your skills.

8. Try to make the world's largest noodle

The record for the Longest noodle has been broken after a Chinese food company successfully cooked a single strip measuring a whopping 3,084 m (10,119 ft 1.92 in). Since you have a lot of time on your hands now you can become one with the pasta. I believe in you.

9. Wear penne noodles as rings

Cut a piece of string the size of your finger and slip it through the flimsy pasta and BAM you got a ring. If this doesn't work for you use some manicotti noddles should be big enough to slide right into your fingers, just cut to size.

10. Give back and feed the homeless

It is always good to donate your time and give back. Thousands if not millions of homeless people go hungry each night, but we all know when we make pasta we always make enough to feed an army. So how about going out and feeding those less fortunate than us?

10. Lock yourself away, ugly cry, and eat your pasta

WE WILL NOT JUDGE!

Who needs ice cream when you have carbs? Go head put on "The Notebook" turn off the lights, and eat your heart out.

12. Macaroni art

Your probably sick of eating with it so play with it.

13. Try to make a Bob Ross painting out of the rainbow pasta you made earlier

The new trend seems to be doing Bob Ross Paintings on anything but a canvas. Using everything from makeup to frosting. By this point you have probably already mastered rainbow pasta, so join the trend with rainbow pasta.

14. Create an Instagram account just for all the pasta you've made

Share with the world your new passion. Who knows who you will inspire!

15. Pasta, but make it fashion

If Lady Gaga can rock a meat dress, someone can rock a pasta dress. So get to work and maybe by the time your done you'll be showing your avant-garde look at fashion week or maybe just end up on "Project Runway."

16. Have a food fight

Has anyone ever denied a food fight? Gather your friends, get some white shirts, and make a mess. By the time you're done, you'll probably laugh on the floor not even worried about the massive mess. You deserve to have fun.

17. Pig out

Although eating a large amount of pasta is shamed upon by society, you obviously made it for a reason so why not enjoy it? Just put those sweats on and eat up.

To The Girl Who Thinks Getting A Boyfriend Will Fix Everything, Sorry, It Doesn't Work That Way

People say that you can't properly love someone else if you don't love yourself, and no matter how annoying it is to hear, it's true.

34

Hey, you.

I want to start off by saying that I may be a hypocrite by writing this, but I don't care. There's that whole saying, "Do as I say, not as I do," right? Let's go with that because I've been in your shoes. I have thought many times that everything wrong in my life like low self-esteem and loneliness would go away if I wasn't single. It doesn't. It really, really doesn't, and maybe by reading this, you will realize that.

So, I'm gonna be as straightforward and honest as I can be based on my experiences.

There's still a chance you won't agree with me. Maybe you will have to do what I did. You may have to date the wrong people before you realize it isn't fixing anything. And let me tell you, it's not fun, but I got through it. So will you.

I always believed that if I fell in love with someone that I would automatically be able to fall in love with myself, no matter how painfully cliche and melodramatic that may sound. I found out this was not true the hard way, by dating someone and quickly realizing that I didn't become an amazingly confident person as a consequence. No matter how annoying it is to hear from your lecturing mother or meddling friend, you can't properly love someone else if you don't know how to love yourself first. This is not me saying that you have to become the epitome of self-confidence. No one that I have ever met is, even if it seems like it at first. I know that I'm not, and I highly doubt that I ever will be. However, this is me saying that you have to stop looking for validation from other people, whether that be from friends, family, or a significant other.

I know you're probably being really harsh on yourself right now.

You probably don't always like what you see in the mirror, maybe you never do, and I am so sorry you feel that way. If I had to guess, I'd say you probably keep repeating things like "I am not good enough" in your head like it's your own personal mantra. Probably because it is. You've made it your motto these days after all. The solution you have thought up is this: I will find someone that will make me feel better. I will find someone that will be my own form of reassurance, of motivation to stop hating myself.

I'm sorry, but it really doesn't work that way.

I know you hate it when you're scrolling through some form of social media and you have to stare at all the pictures of couples holding hands with those cliche Pinterest quotes. I know that there is probably some sort of jealous ache when you double tap on your friend's Instagram picture with their boyfriend.

Being lonely is the worst feeling, but let me tell you something that I know from experience, and I am going to be blunt: Starting a new relationship with someone just for the sake of not being alone anymore will make you feel worse, not better.

At the end of the day, the problem is that these kinds of relationships end. Then, there is a whole new ounce of self-loathing to add to the pot.

There isn't a person on this Earth that will automatically make all of your insecurities, your problems, your negative thoughts and emotions disappear. You have to realize that you're great on your own, not just because someone else tells you so. You are great though, just for the record. You are just as great on your own as you will be alongside another person someday. Just give yourself some time first to find out how fantastic of a person you are.

You need to give yourself more credit. You deserve more than a half-assed relationship. You deserve real love, no matter how cheesy that sounds. You deserve to be in a relationship with someone that you are head over heels for and that is head over heels for you in return. I understand that you're lonely. I understand that you may feel like the odd one out. I understand that it sucks to be the third wheel, but take it from me: a person that has had two best friends be in love with each other for the past two and a half years. It's gonna suck sometimes, but don't date the first guy that comes along.

Give yourself the time you deserve. You have you're whole life ahead of you to date the wrong guys and get your heart broken (I'm sorry if that is pessimistic, but I told you this was gonna be an honest letter). Don't increase your bad luck by pushing yourself. Life goes by fast enough, or so my wise elders have existentially told me.

No, a boyfriend is not what you need right now.

You need a friend. You need to be your own friend. You need to start realizing that you have a lot going on right now and that it is OK, that there are probably thousands, maybe millions of girls just like you feel the same way. I know that I felt like you before, and sometimes I thought that feeling would never go away. But it does. It always does, and before you know it it will happen for you.

The day will come that you look in the mirror and think you are beautiful, and you'll be happy. And that's when it happens. That is the time that someone will come up behind you and say, "Yes, you are."

But you will already know it by then.

Sincerely,

A Friend
