If You're The Girl Who Really Wants A Boyfriend, Read This

You are more important that a relationship.

Tonight, at dinner, my friend and I were discussing our lives as we so often do. We talked about careers we're working toward, cities we want to live in, and how badly we want some boy to come in and change everything for us. The more we talked about how much we wanted boyfriends who turn into husbands, the more depressed I got.

This happens all too often. Most conversations revolve around boys who have burned us, boys who might burn us but haven't yet, or arguing about who is actually more #ForeverAlone.

Later on, I realized something. I will do far more important things than being loved by some boy.

Life is so short, and time is going to pass whether we obsess over boys or not. Life will pass me by if I spend all of my free time sitting around hoping someone wants to date me. I fall into a vicious cycle when I'm trying so hard to keep a boy in my life. I go from a cool, in-control girl to an obsessive, anxious, checking my phone every five seconds girl who is nothing but miserable. My mind becomes occupied with thoughts like "am I good enough?" and "what did I do wrong?" and "when will he text back?"

My life will be full of ups and downs, but I am capable of far more important and fulfilling things than dating that boy that sits next to me in class.No matter how cute he is, he will never be worth losing my sanity over. He will never be worth all the tears. My impact on the world is not determined by who wants to take me to dinner on a Friday night. My worth is not measured in how many texts I get back.

I am a strong woman with so much inside of me. My life is far too busy to wait around for a text. If someone is worth being in my life, they will be. I won't have to chase them if they are worth being in my life.

Today, finding a relationship might seem like the most important thing that could happen to me. Honestly, it's felt that way for a really long time, and it might feel like that for the rest of my life. Expect, I refuse to let that happen. My life is more important than the time I have wasted wishing someone would date me. You are not a sum of all of the people that didn't love you, you are a sum of all of the things you love.

When someone is supposed to be in your life, they will be. It won't be the crazy, desperate, hard to hold onto the type of "love" that so many of us are used to. It will be a type of love that completes you. I know that this is true, but it's about time that you and I start believing it.

10 Signs The Guy You're Texting During Sylly Week Will Be Your Boyfriend By Finals Week

Trust me hunny, if he is actually interested, you can tell.


We've all had that guy in our message thread that we have a crush on but can't tell if he does too. It's a little nerve wrecking because us girls don't want to say to much and make him flee. It's a give and take kind of game that can be fun or stressful. When texting a guy, it's always a gamble.

Here are 10 signs that will tell you if he actually likes you:

1. He texts YOU first 

This is super, super telling. If he really likes you, he will want to initiate conversation. Plus, this means he is thinking about you.

2. He sends long, thought out messages 

Typically, guys aren't the biggest texters. They usually send short and to the point messages, but if he is sending you long and carefully constructed texts, you are heading in the right direction.

3. He texts you when he wakes up 

Everybody knows this is of extreme importance. There are so many things a guy thinks about when he first wakes up so if you receive that message it means you were one of the first things that came to his mind.

4. When you don't text back right away he asks what you were doing 

The longer you take, he either wont think anything of it or he will think nonstop why you're not responding. So, If he asks what you were doing you know he's interested.

5. He makes it a point to text throughout the day 

Guys typically hate texting and don't do it often. So if he texts you all day long you are important in his daily life.

6. Compliments, compliments, compliments 

Compliments tell it all! If he constantly is genuinely complimenting you he is 100% interested.

7. He is always asking you questions about yourself 

If he does this he wants to get to know you better, which is a very good sign.

8. He tries to make you laugh

Making a significant other laugh is normally incredibly important. So if he is always trying to make you laugh and it's successful, you are on the right track.

9. He lets you know what y'all would be doing if he was with you 

This means he is thinking and fantasizing about you and imagining what it would be like to be with you—the best sign you could receive.

10. He texts you when he is drunk 

Listen up girls, if he is texting you and he is blackout drunk then this is tell tale sign. Guys can rarely even remember their name when they are drunk let alone text. So, if this happens you are definitely on his mind.

There are always signs to let you know if a guy really likes you. Here are just a couple to give a little insider, but if he does these then girl you've got nothing to worry about. Go get him, girl.

10 Reactions You Have When Your Ex-Boyfriend Has A BABY, As Told By Michael Gary Scott

"Oh, my God! OK, it's happening!"


I don't know if I'm still too young or already old enough for my ex-lovers to start having children but either way, I'm freaking out.

Whether it's my ex or my friends, I am in utter shock because it's a reminder that I am not getting any younger. I'm stepping into a realm that I've never traverse before, and in all honesty, I don't think I'm ready.

There's nothing wrong about them having a child, settling down, and doing their thing but how the hell did time fly so fast? It's just that I can barely make my bed every day, let alone change a miniature human's diaper.

These were my reactions while stalking my ex on Instagram, as told by Michael Scott:

1. When you first hear the news 

2. "Wait how old were we?" 

3. "How old am I?" 

4. "No I'm not THAT old... am I?" 

5. "Can someone please tell me how and when did this happen?" 

6. "OMG, it's so small and chubbers" 

7. Two words—baby fever 

8. Then you remind yourself that you can't even take care of yourself 

9. Miss emotions about the whole ordeal 

10. You're actually really happy for them 

OMG, check these out
