8 Things Only Girls With Guy Friends Would Understand
Some of us just seem to gel better with guys, perhaps because they're often the ones who can appreciate our weird and quirky antics. With them, there's usually no pressure to tread the waters—the things we share with each other just seem more genuine and natural. While having girl friends does have its certain benefits, in many ways, being friends with the opposite sex can prove to be less of a hassle, and can do us a lot of good in the long run. Each friendship may seem unique, but having guy friends does have its generic pros and cons, and there are certain things in a girl-guy friendship that just make it even more interesting.
- Everybody else thinks that you're sharing a secret romance with one of them.
You always seem to have a hard time convincing your girl friends that there's no romance present in your relationship, and you keep getting "the stare" whenever they see you with one of the guys. Geez, can't a girl deserve platonic love?
- You can't help but feel that maybe "something" IS developing.
The first item may be true, but it doesn’t hold its truth 100% of the time. Too often, you'll reach a moment with one of you guy friends and think—maybe he does have feelings for you...or doesn't he?
- You're constantly explaining girl things.
"What do menstrual cramps feel like, you ask? Imagine the most painful feeling ever. Multiply that by five." Guys always seem to be interested with the things that make us a girl, which is quite odd, but there's absolutely no denying that we are pretty complex beings to understand.
- They forget that you're a girl
There's a certain level of comfort and ease amongst the guys that you're eventually dragged into. They're completely okay with having you in the conversation, even when it involves the manliest things that you just don't want to be a part of.
- Feeling unhappy when they get a girlfriend.
It's not that we don't want them to find someone, but losing one of the guys to a girl can largely affect the barkada dynamics, and that will completely ruin everything. We get jealous too easily, even when we're not entitled to.
- No one is ever good enough for us.
No amount of persuasion is ever enough for us to get a seal of approval from them for the people we like. Just like us, guys tend to be protective when it comes to their friends getting romantically involved, and they can't help but be picky because losing us to someone would mean losing a part of our friendship.
- Liking them, but never being able to tell them.
It's a natural tendency for us to develop feelings for someone we talk to and see on a regular basis. That's just what proximity does. But there's no denying the feeling of annoyance we get when we can't admit our feelings to them. We can't say we like them, because we're too afraid that it will mess up the friendship we've already established.
- They often don't have a filter.
You can count on your guy friends to be honest with you all the time, sometimes even to a brutal extent. Guys are very genuine—most of the time, they say the first thing that pops into their head, and they don't even bother thinking twice about how their words will be perceived.

19 year old pharmacy student-businesswoman from Pampanga. I, Kimberly Chaile D. Ocampo, started planning my own business back when I was 18 years old. Despite being a student, that did not stop me to work and start up something for me to earn my own money. I was also influenced by my parents who are both hands on when it comes to the marketing world. I have decided to start my own mini restaurant/fast food restaurant recently (Feb 2020) and it was named as “Hungry Hubb”. From the word itself which is “Hungry” we thought of something that would give people the biggest hint that we sell food.
Because of the sudden quarantine, every store was forced to close for our own safety that is why there was a sudden decrease on our sales. But Hungry Hubb managed to survive by focusing on online selling and social media promotion. Our best seller would be Shawarma salad which is mediterranean style. We add authentic Garlic sauce to our shawarma (Which is available in Wrap, Salad, & Rice). Every product that we sell are very affordable and delicious. Our starting price is only 50php. (Shawarma Wrap). For Shawarma Salad (70php). We also have Milktea (60php) and Rice meals such as Lechon Kawali, Chicken barbecue, and Pork Barbecue for only 120 pesos.
And of course, I wouldn’t make it up this far without the help of my family and friends who have supported be from the very start. This is an open letter and inspirational especially to students that want to earn their own money. Nothing is impossible. You just have to be determined enough to turn your plans into reality.

Hello, I'm Isabel and I'm a foodie from the South. I love trying out new dishes and pastries in the Metro while I ask myself if it's worth the hype. During this pandemic, I've decided to keep my foodie dreams alive by supporting my friends and small food businesses.
Aside from ordering from them, I've also created my own food blog via Instagram to express my thoughts and positive reviews about them to somehow help spread the word of their food and how other people should try it. At the end of the day, we are all helping one another through this difficult time by having multiple coping mechanisms - others to cook or bake while I write a review about what I eat.
Check out my food blog on Instagram @perdiviews and feel free to send me a message so I can collaborate with you soon!
It's not making sense. Maybe, it is. Everything is so blurry and vague. You can't seem to fathom what's happening. You're lost and searching- searching for the meaning behind what ifs and what could have beens. But life, we give meaning to life as if it's a beautiful paradise. Indeed it is.
But why we feel so gloomy, so empty? It seems like no light is passing through our soul. We're wounded. Hoping for healing. That's because, we're living. We celebrate life but we also fight for it. You feel all the pain, because you're living. You're not just alive, you're living. You can make it through all the storm and darkness. Wishing you well, Marj.
