    My Married Friends Call Me A ‘Spinster,' But Here's Why I Embrace It

    My Married Friends Call Me A ‘Spinster,' But Here's Why I Embrace It

    While I absolutely love and adore my married girlfriends, there is one big thing I wish they knew: I am completely fine being single, and I am completely fine NOT getting married any time soon… or ever. Don't get me wrong; I'm all for marriage and the sanctity it represents. I am over the moon […]

    I Cheated On My Boyfriend, And I Don't Regret Doing It At All

    I Cheated On My Boyfriend, And I Don't Regret Doing It At All

    I can honestly say I have cheated on a boyfriend, and I have absolutely no regrets about it. Although that statement sounds cold and harsh, hear me out before judging me. When I was in college, I had my first “real” boyfriend. I was young, and swept up in what I thought was love. My […]

    This Is What Was Holding Me Back From Finding A Relationship For Years

    This Is What Was Holding Me Back From Finding A Relationship For Years

    “I hate being single.” “Am I the problem?” “Seriously, will anyone ever like me again?!” To be completely honest, I have used and abused the aforementioned quotes … plus many more. I have complained about being single AF over the past few months, possibly more often than I have breathed. I hate it. While I am […]

    Why Your Parents Are Probably Right If They Don't Like Your Boyfriend

    Why Your Parents Are Probably Right If They Don't Like Your Boyfriend

    When I was new to the whole dating and relationships thing, I dated someone my parents truly did not like. Actually, “did not like” is a huge understatement — they genuinely loathed every bit of him. Even though this was my first boyfriend and I had NO clue what I was up against in the […]

    Why It's OK To Secretly Want Your Ex To Fail

    Why It's OK To Secretly Want Your Ex To Fail

    I once read an article that discussed how there is nothing worse on earth than having your ex be more successful than you are post-breakup. And I have to say I agree. It's one thing for them to move on to someone new. In that instance, you can critique how they probably won't last and […]

    I'm Thankful For The Term ‘Negging' To Describe My Past Abusive Relationship

    I'm Thankful For The Term ‘Negging' To Describe My Past Abusive Relationship

    Negging is a misogynist tactic that aims to lower a woman's self-esteem in order to break her down to get what is wanted from her, i.e. a relationship, date, etc. So there's finally an Urban Dictionary term for the fucking awful treatment I received in my very first “grown up” relationship in college? I was […]

    How To Break The Curse Of The Oldest Dating Trend: Feeling Insecure

    How To Break The Curse Of The Oldest Dating Trend: Feeling Insecure

    Frustrated and confused by the modern day dating world (and so over the fuckboys), I decided to take refuge in one of my all time favorite goth romance novels, “Rebecca.” Originally published in 1938, “Rebecca” has reminded me of the stark differences in dating “back in the day” versus our current dating environment, but it has […]

    You Probably Don't Miss Him, You Just Miss Having Somewhere To Belong

    You Probably Don't Miss Him, You Just Miss Having Somewhere To Belong

    A sense of belonging can be defined as a basic human need, just like the need for food and shelter. Feeling that you belong is a crucial part in seeing value in your life. We all have an inherent desire to belong to something more, to something greater than ourselves. Throughout our lives, we have […]

    Why Not Believing In Marriage Doesn't Make Me Bitter

    Why Not Believing In Marriage Doesn't Make Me Bitter

    I believe in love conquering all; I believe in soulmates; I believe in marriage. What I don't believe in is the Millennial haphazard treatment of this huge commitment. I will never be the person to get married to check the box, accomplish some “life goal” or solidify five years in a shitty relationship. That all being […]

    I Have Tons Of Matches On Dating Apps, But I'm Waiting To Find Love IRL

    I Have Tons Of Matches On Dating Apps, But I'm Waiting To Find Love IRL

    No judgment here, but personally, I have always been against dating apps like Bumble and Tinder. Sure, I've tested them out before (relationship blogger research, of course), but something about the principle of the whole thing just rubs me the wrong way. What ever happened to meeting people the “old-fashioned way”? Further, how effective can […]

    Getting Back With An Ex Will Only Prove How Much You've Both Changed

    It's inevitable that as humans, we grow and evolve over time. When it comes to relationships, sometimes people change for the other person, or perhaps the other person changes for him or her. Maybe it's eating more healthily, dressing better or a starting a new gym routine, but whatever it is, that change sticks, even […]
