The other day, I attempted to zip up a dress while at home alone. Obviously, this is something I do all the time. But for some reason, this particular dress took forever to zip up. I figured it out eventually. But the entire time I thought to myself, "Damn. I wish my boyfriend were here right now."
Sometimes, being single is awesome. But sometimes, having a boyfriend comes with fringe benefits. Here are 10 reasons that I enjoy having a boyfriend, although I can't enjoy them as much as I like since my relationship is long-distance.Note:
Lots of these things can be done by a roommate/friend/me. I'm not saying I don't support the feminist movement, but sometimes I get lazy, you know?10.
Bracelet-clasper. Necklace-clasping might be more romantic, but bracelets are much harder to clasp on your own.9.
Occasional free meal. I pay sometimes, he pays sometimes. So sometimes, my food is free. And I'm in college, so free food is BIG
Tall-people benefits. As in, he changes my lightbulbs and hands me things from shelves I can't reach without a ladder. Hey, I'm short, OK?7.
Moving into a new apartment? I have an almost-free moving crew, courtesy of my guy, his friends, and some pizza and beer.6.
Permanent movie date. If my friends think it looks stupid, he's still obligated to go with me. And if it actually is boring, we can always make out in the back.5.
Friends need guy advice? He's always on call.4.
Valentine's Day is so much less depressing when you're happily coupled up.3.
Self-esteem builder. My hair won't stay in place and I'm having a fat day, but having a boyfriend is proof that I'm not completely repulsive to the entire male population.2.
Easy-access sex. Enough said.1.
Love. Because every girl dreams of her own fairy-tale, and maybe this relationship will be mine.Image Source
