Last night on , my best friend whom I have never met, Rachel Lindsay, absolutely killed it during the hometown dates, despite some incredibly awkward situations. She managed to have fun with Eric's family and really bring them together, even though they had been througha series of trials and tribulations throughout his upbringing. Shesomehowwooed Bryan's extremely protective mom. She also did her best todiffuse an incredibly stressful and heartbreaking situation, as Dean's estranged family came together for the first time in eight years. Rachel appeared to be a pro at meeting the parents. She was warm and engaging with all of the families. She brought a gift each time she showed up to a home. She asked the important questions, but didn't overstep her boundaries. She also had killer meet t...

There’s An Important Reason Your Guy Needs Enough Sleep, And It Has To Do With His Sperm

Uncategorized
OK, drop what youre doing, and text your boyfriend right now to ask him if he got enough sleep. If he says he didnt, then you need to break the (potentially tragic, depending on how you look at it) news to him: His sperm are dying and theyre doing it quickly. Why exactly is this tragic? WELP, if you want to have a family through natural means in the future, not having enough healthy sperm will make that a difficult. In a recent study, published in, researchers from the Harbin Medical University in China found a pretty strong link between how much sleep men were getting and how healthy (and abundant) their sperm were. For the experiment, researchers separated 981 male participants (all of whom had already developed healthy sleeping patterns) into three different groups: one group going to ...

3 Romantic Things To Do Every Day If You Want Your Long-Distance Relationship To Survive

3 Romantic Things To Do Every Day If You Want Your Long-Distance Relationship To Survive

Uncategorized
I was in a long-distance relationship my freshman year of college with my boyfriend, who was still a senior in high school at the time. I was in Boston, and he was in Los Angeles. It was, to put it lightly, an absolute nightmare that resulted in two broken hearts, a lot of long nights, expensive plane tickets, and both of us cheating. Long-distance relationships work, but they require respect, patience, and deliberate attention. You have to go out of your way to make your partner feel special every single day, otherwise, you can fall into the dreaded out of sight, out of mind territory.It's difficult, but with the right person and the right tools, it's worth it. Butwhat's the secret to making along-distance relationship successful? I reached out to dating coachand author of Kali Rogers,...
Why Needing To Love Yourself Before Finding Love Is Actually Bullsh*t

Why Needing To Love Yourself Before Finding Love Is Actually Bullsh*t

Uncategorized
Early last year, I hit an all-time low of loneliness. I was almost 20 years old, had never been kissed or on a date, let alone in a relationship. I began asking those around me what was wrong with me. Why didnt guys like me? After 10 years of dealing with my own demons and self-esteem issues, I had this major epiphany that I was funny, cute and smart, practically the whole package. Yet, I’ve still never had a guy be seriously interested in me. I knew I was young and this seemed like a first-world problem, but when youve spent almost a quarter of your life alone, you start to wonder. My family and friends all said the same things youre supposed to tell your single friends, like, Guys are intimidated by you, You dont need a man to be happy and my personal favorite, You need to love y...
6 Signs You’re The High Maintenance One In Your Relationship

6 Signs You’re The High Maintenance One In Your Relationship

Uncategorized
I identify as many things: a self-diagnosed fantasy addict, a half-Jew, a citizen of the UK and a fashion-crazed mascara lesbian with delusions of grandeur. I own all of it, baby. However, while I fully realize that I’m no “chill” girl— I don’t consider myself high maintenance. My English mother used to always say, “Don’t be one of those high maintenance American girls, darling. It’s not attractive” as she twisted her mega-carat diamond ring around her finger. I’m one of those girls who thinks her mother is God so I fiercely hang on to every word she says. OK, then. If mum says being high maintenance is “bad,” well then, surely it’s BAD. However, my mother is also a woman who, for my entire childhood, would only...

8 Reasons Why She Doesn’t Want SWAG, She Wants A Gentleman

Uncategorized
Leslee Mitchell Swag has become the new “it word” for cool dudes. We hear it every day, as it’s one of the most overused ad-libs across hip-hop radio stations nationwide. It’s constantly popping up across social media, seeing that it’s equally as clichéd as a hashtag, too. The word has become a standard for young men to strive toward, regardless of it’s real-life relevance in daily operations – or lack thereof. I mean, think about it. Can you honestly remember the last time you used “swag” on a résumé or uttered the term in a job interview? I doubt it. Still, it manages to buzz across conversational circles everywhere. The thing is, like all “trendy” things, swag will inevitably fade out and make way for the next hip phrase before too long. Trust me, it’s the nature of
A Successful Relationship Looks More Like 60/60 Than 50/50 Effort

A Successful Relationship Looks More Like 60/60 Than 50/50 Effort

Uncategorized
Heddaselder Giving something 110 percent is a common idiom, meaning your absolute maximum effort. It means going beyond 100 percent of your effort and giving that extra 10 percent. When it comes to relationships, maximum effort is usually defined as the relationship being 50/50. This just means both people in the relationship are contributing equally. Just because you’re contributing equally doesn’t mean it’s always enough, though. Relationships, just like anything else important in life, require maximum effort. Many times, you just need to give that extra 10 percent. I believe successful relationships are a 60/60 split effort. Relationships thrive when both partners contribute equally, as much as they can. I’ve been in a couple of unbalanced relationships before and on

Heres What Nice Guys Need To Do To Actually Get The Girl For Once

Ive dated nice guys, Ive been friends with nice guys, and Ive objectively observed nice guys from the sideline while they sent “good morning” texts and bought flowers. Its usually unfair to group men of any kind into a stereotype, but we can make that rule permissible for the sweethearts who experience an identical outcome to their time-consuming (and expensive, holy hell) courting and wooing — they never get the girl. They never even get close to getting the girl. Their text messages are left unread, their DMs are unopened, and the girl they just bought an expensive dinner for has seemingly passed onto the Great Beyond and ghosted them. Meanwhile, bad boys are cannonballing in p*ssy and do absolutely nothing for it. No, literally like they arent doing anything at all. ...
5 Ways I Turned Living With My SO Into Growth For Our Relationship

5 Ways I Turned Living With My SO Into Growth For Our Relationship

Uncategorized
My philosophy on life is often in the extremes. When my partner and I discussed her moving into my 230-square foot efficiency apartment after five months of dating, we chose to throw caution to the wind, sort through the hang-ups and just see what happened. Since the move-in, Ive learned a lot about the opposite sex, my relationship to them and human interaction in general. Living with a lover will mature most people, but living with a lover in 230-square feet will mature anybody. So, here are the five ways I turned living with my SO into growth for our relationship: 1. Only keep what is essential. Living in 230 square feet by myself over the past year has been difficult enough, but I enjoy a Spartan lifestyle. With a small, twin-sized bed and no dressers (I used a suitcase for clean clot...
