Friends With Benefits?

Alright bloggers, today I want to talk about friends with benefits. I just don’t get why people do it. Someone always gets hurt from it, so is it really worth it? I know that it’s fun in the short-term, but if you think about it, there’s no long-term positive. I was friends with a guy who I liked and thought he wanted a long-term relationship like me, but he didn’t. He asked me to be a friend with benefits and I said no. It’s not what I want right now and there is no commitment what so ever. A lot of people settle for being friends with benefits with someone because they like them and think by doing what they want the other person will like them. Or they think they won’t find anyone like that person, or they just want to feel loved. Well I’m going to tell it to you straight, friends with benefits isn’t love. What you’re doing is called making love, but it’s not actual love. If the person loved you, they wouldn’t need all the physical stuff and they would want to be with you with or without it. I’ve been thinking about this subject for a long time because of the boy who asked me to do it  and I learned that I don’t want to settle for the next best thing. I want to be in love with someone and know that they love me back by waiting for when I’m ready for the physical part of the relationship. I know that asking people not to settle for the physical stuff is non-productive, so I won’t. I would encourage people to think about how doing all that just to feel loved, how it really makes you feel. Honestly it can’t be good.

Lets get serious

Hey bloggers! I decided to make this a serious post because it is about a serious problem. I just turned 21 which obviously means that I am legal to drink alcohol, but I don’t drink. I know most of you out there are thinking I am crazy, but there are a lot  of people out there who don’t. It’s been the cause of many deaths and car crashes over the years and puts almost everyone in vulnerable states. Underage drinking is much worse though. A lot of  teens, when they drink for the first time they over do it and can end up blacking out or even in the hospital. It’s not good nor worth it. Honestly I also don’t drink because I don’t like the taste of alcohol. So if your are under the age of 21 and reading this, please don’t over do it. Learn your limit and stick to it. I know asking teens and  people in general not to drink is unrealistic, so I won’t ask. I will just encourage you to find your limit if you are drinking. And teens when you go to parties you can  put soda into one of those beer cups and no one has to know about it. It’s a lot easier too and more fun, you get to watch all your  friends act stupid while you are sober. It’s a lot of fun, trust me I know.
