16 Things Only Girls Will Understand

Diply 15 May 2018

Being a girl comes with a lot of things that men will never fully understand.

This list is just the tip of the iceberg. I didn't even mention the fact that we have to pull hair out from between our butt-cheeks when we shower, or that we have to sometimes put deodorant in weird places cause boob sweat is a real thing.

1. Does the blue eyeshadow and side-bang combo not exist anymore?

This simply isn't fair. Where's the acne? Where's the greasy hair? Where's the awkward graphic-T that says "girls rule and boys drool" on it?

They don't just get to skip to being hot — they need to do their time!

6. Low-rise anything should be illegal

Just as a general blanket statement regarding all bottoms, I'll only wear them if they come up to my belly button. End of story. We should all come together for a sacrificial ceremony, throw our low-rise bottoms into a pit, and light them on fire.

This might be sad, but when I can open a jar on my own, I feel like a strong independent woman who don't need no man.

Giving a guy a fake number is all fun and games until you run into him 2 months later and he remembers you.

FunnyTon | FunnyTon

The secret to locking down a man is to quietly create dependence. Just keep refilling his ice trays, and then when you stop, he'll realize he needs you, and you're in for good.
