It's no secret that Valentine's Day is right around the corner!

It's a day in which couples usually go all out to celebrate their love and each other.

I think most of the gentleman out there would agree with me that their ladies are super special. That being said, don't you think that they deserve every day to feel as special and loved as they do on Valentine's Day?

Heck yeah, they do!

That being said, here are 10 ways that you can show your girl that you love them all 365 days of the year!

1. Make them a 365 day jar

This is a super easy thing to make that you can make with supplies from around your house!

All you need to do is get a mason jar and write on some small pieces of paper why you love her, memories with her, some encouraging quotes, and maybe some lovey-dovey song lyrics. It is usually best to color code the categories so they can choose what they need.

This is a super personal and special gift to give to your significant other because it will remind them every single day of the year just how much you love them.

2. Plan a picnic

This is a super easy thing to do that is sure to make her realize just how much you care about her. It will be so nice for you both to just take a second out of your busy lives to go outside and spend time together.

You don't even have to make the picnic food. If you really want, you can just grab a blanket and drive through Bojangles or somewhere and eat it outside.

3. Take her to get a massage or to get her nails done

Massage

Surprise your girl by treating her to some method of pampering.

In her stressful life, this is sure to make her feel better and it will show her that you really care.

If you want, there is also always the option for a couples massage or couples pedicures!

 4. Buy her flowers for no reason

This is a given.

What girl doesn't love flowers? Especially when they are for no particular reason except that "I love you."

You can even get them super cheap and they will still make her day.

 5. Cook her favorite meal

This is a real easy way to impress her and something that will make her day, especially if she had a hard one.

6.  Write her a letter

Love Letter

With phones these days, some people forget that you can actually pick up a pen and paper and write out a handwritten letter.

Doing this would be something really meaningful and heartfelt that would surprise your girlfriend, even if you type it up and print it out.

 7. Get her some makeup

Now, I know that not every girl likes makeup, but if your girlfriend is a makeup-loving one, then this would be sure to make her day!

Maybe get her a new lip gloss or go all out and get her a new eye shadow palette. Whatever it is, no matter how big or small, she will appreciate it.

8. Do something for her

This is super broad, but you can do anything really that just helps her out. This will help alleviate some of the pressure and stress on her.

This can include doing things that she normally would like taking out the trash or putting her cloths away for her.

The whole idea of it is to just do something you normally wouldn't do for her.

9. Watch a rom-com with her

Titanic

While you may not be a huge "Titanic" or "The Notebook" fan, it will make your girls night if you simply just sit down and watch a "chick-flick" with her.

10. Get her a puppy

Puppy

Do I even need to explain this one?

What girl wouldn't want to wake up to a puppy on their bed as a surprise? I personally, would recommend French Bulldogs.

Obviously make sure you are responsible enough to care for it and realize that it is a commitment though.

An Open Letter To The Girl In A Toxic Relationship Who Doesn't See The Signs To Let Go

"it took letting go to realize that I was holding onto nothing" -R.H Sin

Dear you,

I hope you're doing well. I once thought I was too. I once thought that if he would just change, for me, everything would work. However, my sweet girl, you should not have to change people, you should not have to push people to be better, for you. You cannot help anyone, that does not want to help themselves.

In the movies, we learn to love a bad boy that needs changing. However, it isn't always your job to be boys saving grace. However, his shaming and emotional abuse is not just something you should put up with so that you can love him. That is not loving.

Love is not a constant competition of who could belittle the other one first. Love is not asking for a hug and being told no. Love does not make you feel stupid for bringing up things that hurt your feelings.

Love does not grow angry because you talk to your mom about your feelings. Love does not body shame. Love does not constantly change the passcode to their phone.

Love does not laugh when you find out they're unfaithful. Love does not tell you that you are not smart enough to accomplish anything. Love does not force their hand up your thigh when the words "no" slip out of your mouth.

Love is the warmth of a hand on your cheek when you get anxious. Love is getting your backpack out the car for you. Love is turning around when you need them. Love compromises.

Love is encouraging. Love is proud. Love is forgiving. Love sees you for who you are. Love knows you are worthy.

God is your Father and you are His daughter, so do not believe for one second that this abuse is the love you think you deserve.

Love will not always be easy. Love will be challenging and a constant prayer to not anger so quickly.

However, do not mix up challenging with the abuse. If you are losing the good pieces of yourself, then it isn't love. I know that you put a lot of time and effort into this relationship, but it is no good, you are holding on to someone whose heart is not in the right place to love you.

I connected with a poem from R. H. Sin, once I left my toxic relationship which reads, "it took letting go to realize that I was holding onto nothing."

Darling girl, you are so loved by so many people, do not let this relationship hold you back or make you feel less worthy than you are. I have always been the girl with her nose stuck up in the air smelling for smoke, to follow the trail to a burning house to find a boy that needed saving, but it is more than likely a boy that lit the fire in the first place and needs changing.

So, do not be me, be better. Be the girl that lights her own world on fire, for her work, for her family, for God. You are you and you are amazing, so do not fear being without him.

You will feel as if you have come up for air after drowning in an ocean that you had no idea you were swimming in.

The emotional abuse that this boy has put you through and maybe even physical abuse will leave you building walls around your heart. It will make other relationships hard, but you are so so strong.

You will meet someone that makes you so happy and feel so easy to love, you will never understand how you stuck around with the one that hurt you for so long.

You deserve to grow from this, and I promise you will.

Let go.

xoxo,

The girl who learned from a toxic relationship

Being Far Away From My Boyfriend Actually Strengthened Our Relationship Instead Of Forcing It Apart

While we were apart, we became closer.

Before I really start this article, I just want to say that my relationship isn't truly a long distance relationship. We are both college students at the same university eight months out of the year, but the other four months we live quite a distance apart. Even during those four months, we are only about 150 miles from each other as the bird flies, but really about three hours from each other.

Being in a relationship where I'm not able to see my boyfriend every day or even every week has been a real challenge. But it's been a good challenge. It hasn't been a challenge because I've felt unfaithful or fallen out of love with him in any way. It's challenging because I miss him. We both work jobs and our schedules aren't the same and oftentimes we aren't able to talk to each other unless it's early in the morning or late at night. There are times when all I want to do is talk to him and tell him about how my day went and get a big bear hug from him. Unfortunately, I'm not really able to do this.

I firmly believe that being apart from each other for days, weeks, or even months have brought us closer than we could've ever imagined. We knew that this would be difficult, and we knew that there would be bad days, but we decided to power through it. It has made each time that we are able to see each other so much more special and meaningful.

Seeing each other has become more of spending time with each other than just laying around on the couch playing around on our phones. It's become really getting to know each other better and catching up on all the things we had missed. It's become a time for us to simply be in each other's presence and enjoy being able to talk face to face without a phone in the middle of us. We go on more adventurous dates, we take more pictures, and I think we would both easily say that we fall more and more in love with each other after each opportunity we have to spend time together.

Spending time together is no longer a daily activity, but it has become a right to be earned through hard work and several paychecks as travel can become expensive. We no longer take opportunities to see each other for granted, and it has made us grow closer because we aren't able to spend time together often. We look forward to the days when we won't have to worry about being apart but know that this is only a stepping stone in our relationship.
