13 Reasons Why Tea is Better Than a Significant Other

This was posted on BuzzFeed the other day: 13 Reasons Why Wine is Better Than a Significant Other. I thought it was cute and funny, but there were a few points I didn't like. So, I came up with "13 Reasons Why Tea is Better Than a Significant Other." Remember, this is only for laughs and to put a smile on your face.

1. Tea will have no problem going to wherever you want to go. Whether it's going to tea parties, getting dressed up fancily and listening to classical music or classical guitar or going to Twiztid concerts or heavy metal concerts with flannel teas and ripped jeans, tea is always awesome before shows and after shows for late night commutes home. It also has no problem fitting in whether you're meeting your favorite band, meeting friends for the first time or just general get togethers. You don't have to babysit tea in the corner because it is not fitting in or is hated by a lot of people.

2.  Tea will watch what you want, whenever you want. Whether it's Civil War documentaries, Antiques Roadshow, Packers or Tigers games, or whatever your heart desires.

3. Tea is never "too tired" or "too sick" or "too whatever." It's up to anything you want to do at any time of the day. If you want to curl up on the couch and watch a movie, tea is up for it. If you want to go on a backpacking adventure through Asia, tea is up for it!

4. Tea never makes you choose between it and your friends. Tea does what you want all the time and if you don't want tea to tag along while you hang out with your girlfriends, it won't through a whine fest and protest you going out with your BFFs. You can do whatever you want at any time; and besides, your friends won't complain if you bring tea along...

5. Tea tastes good. Whether it's black tea or green tea or herbal teas - it all tastes good!

6. Tea doesn't have any ulterior motives. Tea is there to lift you up and not bring you down.

7. Tea will never judge you. Seriously, whether you cry over a Twiztid song or a Pantera song or cry over a book or some memories that involve lost loved ones and their affinity for tea, it won't judge you and it seems like tea comes back for more. It just happens and I'm not going to complain... especially when it helps you get to sleep.

8. Tea has no problem opening up to you. It just happens without nagging or complaining.

9. Tea knows what you want. And what you want is tea. Tea is what you want. What could be any better than that?

10. Tea will always make you smile. Whether you're under the weather, feeling cold or just need something to unwind from the day, tea can always put a smile on your face in the worst of situations.

11. Everyone loves tea. You don't have to worry about if your friends or family or co-workers don't like tea because everyone likes tea. Perhaps tea isn't their type (they rather have coffee or espresso), but they don't hate tea.  You've scored something everyone likes. Whoop whoop! You're awesome, girl!

12. Tea is always there for you. And it will always pick you up regardless.

13. Tea makes everyone come together.What could be better than that? There is no conflict when tea is around.


  1. At least your version doesn't insult people. :)

    1. True, which tea doesn't either! :D Don't get me wrong, I like wine - but the list they gave... some hit too close to home and well, I prefer tea.
