Addiction is generally a hurdle in a relationship, but not when it comes to coffee. Coffee addicts are ambitious, motivated people who are filled with vitality. If you’re lucky enough to date one, she will change your life for the better with her go-getter attitude and endless amounts of energy. The girl who loves coffee makes the best girlfriend, for these 9 reasons and more:

  1. We get crap done. Coffee addicts are the most efficient people on the planet when we want to be. We set ourselves up with the appropriate sized cup for the task and bang it out at manic speeds. Need a girlfriend that’s out there getting everything she wants out of life? You can probably find her at your local Starbucks.
  2. It’s easy to cheer us up. You know what would brighten our mood? Coffee. Showing up with our usual order is an easy and effective way to put a smile on our face and help us turn a bad day around.
  3. Dates don’t have to break the bank. We like nice dates as much as any other person, but we love a good coffee date, as well. Whether it’s checking out a new coffee shop, taking iced coffees on a walk together, or drinking pumpkin spiced lattes while carving jack-o-lanterns, we’re capable of having a great time without completely emptying your bank account.
  4. Our energy is contagious. We love having energy. Being sluggish or living in a fog is really not our thing, and our vitality and liveliness rubs off on everyone around us. Our presence breathes new life into a room, and we are great at hyping people up for a good time.
  5. Gift shopping is easy. Lost on what the perfect gift for your leading lady might be? She’ll always be happy with a box full of coffee grounds or a gift card to her favorite coffee shop. If she’s an Instagram junkie too, cute mugs tend to get a lot of likes.
  6. We can tackle anything. Coffee is our super power. There’s no limit to what we can do, short term or long term, with our secret weapon in our mugs. With a powerful, effective woman on your team, the sky will always be the limit.
  7. We can hang all night. The coffee lover is always capable of rallying for a night of fun, no matter how exhausting her week has been. Where a normal girl would bail on plans after a difficult day of work and just cuddle with Netflix, we’re down to chug an iced coffee while getting ready and power through for an amazing night.
  8. We appreciate the little things. We notice when you go out of your way to pick up coffees from our favorite place, sense that we might need an extra espresso shot for a big day, or start the pot for us on mornings we sleep in. The way we appreciate the little things applies to everything our boyfriends do for us, and no act of kindness goes unnoticed.
  9. You’ll never be bored. So coffee addicts might be a little… nuts. We keep odd hours, have strange energy fluctuations, and like to do everything in life at our own pace (often manically fast). But the ride you’ll take with us will always be interesting, full of surprises, and never fall into a rut. Plus, if we do get ever get bored, we’ll just fix that by going out for more coffees.
