Love has become a cultural obsession. And so, many are on the hunt for the perfect man who will fulfill their fairytale fantasies in order to unlock the door to a happy life. But that’s where people go wrong – believing that they need love to have good lives.

Life takes more than just men and relationships to be meaningful, and there are some reasons why you should probably get a beer, not a boyfriend.

1. Beer is not complicated.

Guys are an enigma, you never what you are getting into until it’s too late. But with a beer, you always know what you are getting and the history that comes with this beloved beverage. There is a label you can read to learn all you can about the beer you are having. It is not so easy with guys.

2. Beer will be with you after a long day or work.

However bad of a day you were having, or how long and hard you would like to go on about a long day at work, beer will be still and listen. It will not judge until you are satisfied that you have gotten everything off your chest. It will also do this without making up more problems for you.

3. Beer is easy to find.

If you have been on the search for a good guy, then you know how tough this search can be. But all you need to get a good beer is check in at the nearest bar. There might be some guys in there as well, but most will may not be up to the mark.

4. Beer will not mistreat you.

Beer will never be a jerk to you, ever. At worst, it can only give you a hangover, but only if you take too much of it. Otherwise, that is not something you typically have to worry about. You do not have this control with a guy, and they will often treat you like trash because they can.

5. Beer will not bring you any heartbreak.

A beer will never shatter your heart into countless pieces. It will never pretend that it cares or lie to you to make you fall in love. It will also not change its mind and leave you high and dry, breaking your heart.

6. Beer never stands you up.

A beer will never leave you in order to spend time with other beers. It will always be there when you need it. Some guys can leave you when you need him the most, but beer will never do that, regardless of whether you are sad, happy, moody, or having a good time with your friends.

Quite simply, you should pick beer over men. As long as you drink in moderation, you will be fine. It will not hurt you as a man will. So, take this into consideration the next time you feel an urge to bring a man into your life. Ask yourself, is it a beer or a man I need? If you don’t want a heartbreak, then you should obviously just grab a beer.
