Lazy Girls Actually Make The Best Girlfriends, Believe It Or Not

Men think they want active, athletic women who spend their mornings in spin class and their nights doing yoga. While it’s important to stay healthy, it has nothing to do with being a good partner. In fact, all of us lazy girls actually make the best girlfriends. We know how to have a good time without even leaving the house.

  1. We can never get enough Netflix dates. We can all agree that watching Netflix is the best way to spend any date. That means our men won’t have to kill themselves coming up with new date ideas every week, because we won’t mind watching Orange is the New Black for the third time in a row.
  2. We spend most of our time naked. We hate being confined by bras and pants, so we usually walk around without them. That means our men will always have a great view. Plus, when it’s time to have sex, it won’t take us as long to get undressed.
  3. We rarely have the opportunity to cheat. We don’t like to leave the house, so we’re not going to be meeting new people at clubs every weekend. Our men won’t have to worry about us being unfaithful, because the only men we spend time with are the celebrities on our screens.
  4. We go with the flow. Being lazy doesn’t mean we refuse to leave the house. If our man plans a special date for us, then we’ll be happy to do whatever he wants. We’re pretty laid-back, so there won’t be any arguments from us.
  5. We text back right away. We spend a lot of time on our phones, so if you text us, we’re going to respond pretty quickly. We hate when others take hours to reply to a conversation that they started, so we’ll never do that to you.
  6. We don’t obsess over appearances. We probably won’t be putting on makeup or changing out of our pjs before our boyfriends come over, so they don’t have to spend hours getting ready, either. As long as he showered and brushed his teeth, he should be good to go.
  7. We love to cuddle. Try to think of an activity more enjoyable than cuddling. There isn’t one. We love to lounge around, which means we won’t mind spending an entire day cuddling in bed with our man. It’ll bring us closer physically and emotionally, so why would we want to do anything else?
  8. We’re pretty smart. You don’t actually have to travel around the world to learn a lot about it. The time we’ve spent watching Animal Planet and Discovery Channel has taught us more than we’d learn on vacation. We always have plenty to talk about, because we know silly little facts most people haven’t heard of before.
  9. We’ll always have time for you. All of us lazy ladies try not to pack our schedules, because we don’t want too much on our plates at once. That means we’ll have plenty of time to spend with you. As long as you initiate the date for us, we’ll be eager to see you.
  10. It’s clear when we care for you. Relationships require a great deal of effort. Since we don’t like to exert energy, the fact that we’ll do whatever we can to make you happy shows how much we care about you.
