5 Of The Best Ways To Let Your Partner Know How Much They Mean To You

5 Of The Best Ways To Let Your Partner Know How Much They Mean To You

Uncategorized
I have a hard time expressing my feelings, especially when they are the romantic kind. I am in my 28th year, and the last time I deeply liked someone, he received more text-sass than “I like you a lot.” The way I treated him was  the way to tell someone how much they mean to you. No matter how patient a person is — shout out to that dude and others who have suffered my immaturity — not sharing your vulnerable feels will most certainly backfire and leave you an alone person (the terribly dark way I have started to refer to myself). He moved, and that “relationship” faded into textversations and bi-annual hookups when it should have been shut down faster than Anthony Scaramucci's time in the White House. A year late...

I’ve lived in New York for nearly seven years. That means in just three short years, I’ll be the living, breathing definition of Carrie Bradshaw’s true New Yorker. A decade in New York. What a time to be alive. In the seven years I’ve called New York home, I’ve lived in four different apartments and one dorm room. I’ve had countless roommates, three neighborhoods and many an adventure. New York has been an amazing infrastructure to house many a life lesson. It’s given me the network to pursue my dream career as a sex writer and served as the backdrop to the crazy adventure of finding the love of my life. But there was something missing in this entire moving, adventuring, roommate hunting and learning thing. Asense of home. A sense of belonging. In...

The Science Of Suspicion: What Makes Us All So F*cking Jealous

The Science Of Suspicion: What Makes Us All So F*cking Jealous

Uncategorized
We’ve all experienced jealousy at some point in our lives. Whether it be in kindergarten over who got to play with the blocks for the longest or in college when the cute guy you had a crush on for literally forever is chatting up some rando at a bar. It’s something we experience naturally; it heats up our cheeks, blinds us with anger and makes us do some crazy things. But after the heat of the moment, when the dust settles around us, we’re forced to confront our own motivations and what exactly made us feel the way we did. Unfortunately, the truth is rarely pretty and never simple. Jealousy is a factor in every single type of relationship. It’s something that, no matter what, is impossible to avoid. There will always be a little something that ti

5 Undervalued Aspects Of Being Eternally Single In Your 20s

Jojo and Ella I’m 25 years old and I’ve never had a boyfriend. I’ve kissed guys, slept with guys and been on dates that range from coffee to rock-climbing with guys, but I’ve never been in a relationship. Years of being single and wanting a commitment can easily sum up to bitterness. Because I wanted a relationship so badly, I’ve hated my single status for quite some time. Then, I learned to appreciate it. I never stopped wanting a boyfriend, but I now consider myself lucky I haven’t had one yet — here’s why: 1. I’ve learned valuable lessons secondhand As my boyfriendless teens gave way to boyfriendless 20s, I wondered how my lack of exes would disadvantage me in an age bracket, where the vast majority of people have relationship experience. Fortunately, you

5 Signs You Have Trust Issues That Will Ruin Your Healthy Relationship

Matilde Viegas If trust issues aren’t the number one cause of breakups, it has to be one of the leading causes. In my brief time alive, I’ve noticed that the problems most couples face are usually arguments that can be traced to insecurities masked as trust issues. A lot of times, prematurely entering relationships leads us to bring unresolved problems from previous relationships. This gives our significant others unfair disadvantages; it hinders them from giving us their all because we never give them a chance to do so. The hurt we face and the issues into which we run without allowing for time to heal can spill into subsequent relationships. This spill can turn into a slippery slope that leads downhill into Heartbreakville. These are some of the signs of trust issues:

A grandparent Just because a person might not know what Snapchat is doesn’t mean a friendship with someone of an older generation isn’t worthwhile. In fact, this person can make for one of your most valuable friendships because he or she has seen multiple generations before yours.

We Heart It I’m no expert when it comes to relationships and I don’t think I’ll ever be. I just keep thinking of this quote, and so, I’m thinking about you and finally beginning to understand what it means. Anthony Robbins said, Do what you did in the beginning of a relationship and there won’t be an end. ​We’re chasers. Endless lovers for the people we cannot obtain. I mean, we always want what we can’t have. In your case, it was me. I was walking toxic waste. A brilliant mind lost in meaningless nights blanketed with reckless decisions. I was your chase refusing to be caught. But, if we’re being completely honest, I was yours from that moment we were on the same roof, whether I was willing to ever admit it or not. ​I’ve played the game before and it’s certainly been pl

The Agony Of Breaking The Heart Of Someone You Used To Love

Jenny Woods We often hear about heartbreak from those mercilessly dumped by the “one” and left for dead on the side of the proverbial highway of love. Their stories seem to be everywhere; there’s no lack of verbiage surrounding the disappointments of having your heart broken because someone didn’t want you anymore. The same story is sung over and over like a bad Top 40 radio jam. But what about the rest of us? What about the ones who actually do the breaking up? Where are our stories? We’re the ones who faced a serious dilemma, a crossroads in our lives and ultimately had to make a decision. We’re the ones who’ve fallen out of love. We’re the villains of the tales of horror, the “Maleficents,” the dragons, the trolls.

“Because you sometimes work 26 days a month, and 27 hours a day, I know that technically I can do this by myself.” By Amanda Elder There were times I felt bitter toward you, especially when you were a medical student, and I was transitioning to being a stay-at-home mom. You didnt understand my struggle. I ate, slept, and breathed our child, and felt consumed and alone. You had a life outside of parenthood to continue, and while I stopped mine, I accommodated yours. For a period of time, we moved often and lived out of suitcases. Once, we even resided in a single bedroom of a Staten Island basement. For years, I manned the night wakings and offered my breasts around the clock as the only consistent comfort amidst constant upheaval. Whenever you were off fro...

Why College Is For Searching For Your Bridesmaids, Not Your Husband

Shaun & Skyla Walton Up until college, I was never the type of person to stress out about the future. I was always confident that everything would work out the way it was supposed to, and each person had his or her own individual path. No one could tell me otherwise. To further support my belief, I would repost motivational quotes on Tumblr regularly. But, once I went to college, I realized the constant schoolwork brought out other underlying worries I didn’t even know existed. The main premise of these underlying worries, which were now constantly on the surface, consisted of making the wrong decisions in relationships. Relationships are an instrumental part of college, and of in life in general, and they have the ability to make you happy or the complete opposite.

One Love? Don’t Think So: 4 Gaping Flaws With The Concept Of Monogamy

Uncategorized
Tumblr The whole idea of choosing one person with whom to share your whole life is a very poorly-constructed concept. We are repeatedly told to aim for everlasting love, yet we often find it to be a painful string of ups and downs, elation to heartbreak, then back again. And, while I will never deny that loving and being loved are the strongest, most joyful feelings to experience, the ability to feel and sustain such a bond is entirely impractical. Sexual Attraction Ideally, this element should change upon finding a mate. To say that we will only ever feel a sexual attraction for the person we choose is ridiculous. Sexual desire is not a switch to be flicked from automatic to manual when in love. And if it was, let us hope it’s reversible. Sexual drive is an innat

6 Reasons A Summer Fling Can Help You Get Over Your Worst Breakup

The day after was excruciating. A promising relationship ended without warning, leaving you smashed and defeated. Lying there in bed, unable to sleep, you just played the ending scene over and over in your head, and you kept coming back to the same questions: “What did I do wrong?” “Why didn’t I see it coming?” “If Ihad seen it coming, could I have done something different?” You can’t stand the advice from friends and family, most of which is so horribly cliched, you can only cringe in reply. The “more fish in the see” argument should be freakin’ outlawed, and all that sympathy and pity just makes everything worse. To top it all off, it’s summer. Everyone is outside doing fun things, exploring and adventuring and enjo...
