It's Okay To Pull An 'Ariana And Pete' And Fall Madly In Love In Under A Month

Love is about trust and if you enter, afraid to fall and build wall after wall, it just closes you off to the possibilities.


So if you've been living under a rock let me catch you up on some of the biggest celebrity news of the summer—Ariana Grande splitting with her rapper boyfriend, Mac Miller and starting a new relationship with comedian Pete Davidson just days later.

Within a short amount of time (the timespan of a month or two give or take) they've become engaged and have gotten matching tattoos. Now, a lot of people are speculating that the two are moving too fast and that their relationship will fizzle out in disaster. But hold up...

First off, it's their relationship and it's not yours so mind your own business.

Secondly, and most importantly, it's really okay to fall head over heels in love with someone in a short period of time.

Grande had reportedly been in an abusive relationship with her previous boyfriend and is now assumedly much much happier with her new beau and that's AMAZING. The feeling of finally finding a good man after the end of a bad relationship is so satisfying and so hard to describe until it really happens to you.

To find someone who is so compatible to you and so supportive and loving to you is the best feeling after never having it. To have someone who reminds you of how beautiful you are and is so accepting of you, it's almost like a drug that you never want to give up. It's just too good!

If the relationship is healthy and loving, why not want to pursue things further? If you feel like you know that person and want to jump on the journey of marriage with them, why not? It's only natural to want to be with the person who treats you the best for the rest of your life. To be able to work things out and keep the feeling strong, why not stay together?

Now, I'm not saying I'm for or against jumping right into marriage with every couple but in the end, it's really up to the couple. I mean I'm not a celebrity and I'm only 20-years-old, but let me say that the feeling of finding someone who you feel completes you, is the best feeling and I'm really happy for people who find that because it just feels so rare until it really happens.

I've only had it happen to me once this far in my life and it has honestly changed my viewpoints on relationships.
I never had a man care about me the way this man did and I never had my heart feel so full. I'm not psychic so I can't tell you if he felt the same way, but I know I was head over heels and I still am.

I feel like a lot of people really mistake fake love for real love until it's over and they see just how unfitting the relationship was. The flaws and mistakes really start to come out after the end of a relationship. It was a learning experience but it wasn't the best match in the end. But, it's okay because the more you love and be loved, the more experience you will have.

It's totally normal to throw yourself into a relationship within the first few months, but there is a line (a reference to another one of my articles). From what I've seen, Ariana and Pete are just on the journey of love and that's totally fine.

Love is about trust and if you enter, afraid to fall and build wall after wall, it just closes you off to the possibilities. Of course, you're going to get your heart broken in dating but taking the plunge and finding someone at the end of the day is worth it.

A quote from One Tree Hill to sit with you: "Yes, losing your heart's desire is tragic. But gaining your heart's desire? That's all you can hope for. This year I wished for love... to immerse myself in someone else and to wake a heart long afraid to feel. My wish was granted. And if having that is tragic, then give me that tragedy. Because I wouldn't give it back for the world"

I Married My High School Sweetheart, And In Hindsight, It Really Was The Best Decision

From graduation gown to wedding bands.


I married my high school sweetheart when I was nineteen, going on twenty.

We had been out of high school for a year. And you probably think that's crazy, or as most people believe, we were too young to get married. While most of my friends from high school were getting alcohol poisoning from doing kegstands at a college frat party or picking out dorm room furniture, I was a newlywed. Everyone goes their different ways after high school, and so did I, mine was just different than most. I had decided to marry the guy who stole my heart throughout my last years of high school.

I met my husband when I was sixteen working my first job.

We went to homecoming, football games, and prom together. We walked across the same stage, the same day on graduation. And instead of going into adulthood alone, I got to give it a go with my best friend.

Many of my friends and family didn't understand us getting married so early.

They thought we were crazy, and maybe we were, but we had found something many people spend so much time looking for, and that was true love, as corny as it sounds. But as many people my age spend this time searching for someone to spend their life with, we had already achieved that part of our lives, and now planning a future together.

We've heard it all, the whole "you'll regret getting married young" speech, that I'm too young to know what love is or that I didn't give myself enough time outside of high school to meet other people. I'm a firm believer that if something or someone makes you happy, you seize that feeling. And I had found someone incredibly special who made me feel just as special.

Don't get me wrong, we've struggled, especially with a husband being active duty military.

You don't get married at twenty and not struggle learning the ways of becoming an adult. But every problem we have faced, we faced together as a team. We have got to witness each other do amazing things so far in life like promotions at jobs or ace projects in college, as well as watching each other grow as individuals and as a couple. As a young couple, we still chase our own dreams, we just support one another along the way.

I am now twenty-three, and I have been married to my best friend for three years.

We have a beautiful daughter who is eighteen months old. We are achieving so much more than we could imagine for ourselves and there is no one else I would rather be doing it with.

With high school in the past, and being married with our own little family forming, I don't regret one thing. If anything I wish I was still as gutsy as teenage me. It's been worth every up and down along our journey and I can't wait to see what the next fifty years hold.

If I Get Married, I Don't Need An Offical Wedding

You can't run from the altar if you weren't at one to begin with.


Last week, my mom got remarried. I'm super happy for her, and I know she's with a great guy, and all of my friends that knew were so excited. The one question I got asked the most was: when's the wedding? To which I responded: I have no clue. My mom has already had one wedding, and for her, that was more than enough. So, they went and got the documents signed (or whatever needs to be done) at the courthouse when they went on a super cool vacation to California, instead of paying for some big ceremony and/or a reception.

Honestly, I kind of see the appeal of it. As I've gotten older, I've definitely become less feminine, and if you don't see me wearing pants, I'm either at a swim meet or had to dress nicely for a banquet or presentation. Therefore, down the road, if I ever decide to get married, I don't think I'd want any sort of wedding.

My first issue would be the dress, of course. People on shows such as Say Yes to the Dress are willing to spend thousands of dollars for a dress that they wear for one day of their lives. Personally, I'd rather spend that kind of money going on a really dope vacation, or putting it towards saving up for a house, car, or some other expensive purchase.

Next issue: wedding receptions. I've only been to a couple weddings before, but it seems like it would be so stressful to try and plan how many of your close family and friends would be allowed to come to watch you get married, and then pay for a massive party to celebrate it. I know I would want a small group of people but at the same time I know I'd want as many of my friends there as possible. Why deal with the stress of seating arrangements and picking meals and deciding whether or not to have an open bar when you can just avoid the problem altogether?

Last major issue: I'm not really religious. None of my immediate family has ever been the type to go to church or be super involved in any specific religion, and so I've grown up not really having a church I attend, or any particular desire to start going to church. Since most weddings are in churches, I don't think I'd ever really feel right to have an important ceremony like that in a place that doesn't really have any significance to me when I could just go to a courthouse and save the time.

That being said if whoever I did decide to marry wanted a more official ceremony or to do it in a church, I would be open to reconsidering. Marriage and relationships and general work based on compromise, and I would like to believe I'd be willing to do some of these things if it truly made my significant other happier.
