Was my first attempt at making friends for our family in this new town going to be ruined by my refusal to hide the fact that we were different?
small towns
I didn’t always feel this way about Northwest Arkansas. When I turned 12, I hated everything and everyone. I started buying into the hype that rural living was somehow unsophisticated, and that to be anything meant moving as far away as possible, as soon as possible.
friends with benefits
I've never had a FWB-type situation before, so this is a new experience for me. Should I ask him if he's interested in giving this a shot? If so, how?
I think I've finally achieved a balance between "remind your high school acquaintances you're hot" and "ensure none of the locals talk to you."
big cities
Jackie and Eliot are best friends who don't always see eye to eye. For which we are thankful, because it's funny when they fight, like two bums but with less guilt.
