Here is a survey about what each gender thinks about February 14th…and some of the results might shock you!
So many women default to self-loathing. Or, at the very least, self-neutrality. Pride is a sin, after all, and it’s more socially acceptable to trash-talk your own body than it is to praise it. Our society has conflated humility with self-deprecation, which makes open acknowledgment of your own beauty, power, and worth absolutely taboo. Continue reading "An Argument For Self-Love"

Here are my five foolproof ways for keeping that fire a-burnin’… 1. Choose Your Battles It sounds cliché, but this is truly one of the most important ingredients to a long-lasting relationship. It definitely isn’t easy, especially when he’s done something that is so juvenile (such as leaving his dirty socks on top the coffee table … gross), but I know from experience that blowing up time and again over little, insignificant irritants - in the grand scheme of things - is not the way to go. If he stays out all night with his boys at questionable bars without giving you a call, then by all means let him have it. Otherwise try your damndest to turn the other cheek (because really, who wants to waste precious Gossip Girl time arguing about laundry?). Continue reading "5 Tips for a Long-Lasting Relationship"

We spend a lot of time together without getting sick of each other, but haven’t meshed into a creepy and mushy single being like some couples are prone to. He makes me laugh, although it’s usually more at him than with him. He’s GREAT in bed. But best of all, I just feel comfortable with him. I’m not constantly paranoid about checking my makeup or trying to force witty conversation. I can be completely me, and he likes me more for it. It’s perfect, right? Not quite.
