Forever wishing I could have been asked out by a cute boy in the sixties.

Nowadays we only communicate through text, honk when we're outside waiting and sit on our phones when we're together. It wasn't always like this. Men used to actually ask women out on dates, just to get to know each other. There was no exchanging numbers or Snapchat usernames prior to seeing each other. It was innocent and sweet getting to know one another during their adorable and timeless dates. Now it's just wishful thinking that a boy will ask you on one of these perfect old-fashion dates. Right? Wrong.

Try any of these old-fashioned dates if you're a young girl with an old soul:

1. Going dancing

Dancing needs to be brought back and be deemed socially acceptable and normal. And I'm not talking about going to the bar or club and grinding. This date should be good, clean fun on the dance floor together.

2. Bringing flowers to the door

Really, this sweet tradition should have never ended. I mean, when did we decide that honking our car horns or sending a text that says "here" when we're waiting outside become okay? Get yourself a man that comes to your door to greet you and pick you up for your date. Bonus points if he opens the car door for you!

3. Handwritten letters or poems

Can you even imagine a time where we wrote down how we feel on paper instead of sending it through Snapchat so it disappears in ten seconds? Man, what a time to be alive.

4. Drive-in movie

This date idea reminds me of the movie Grease when Danny takes Sandy to the drive-in. Perfect idea for a nice summer night together.

5. Parking

Couples really used to drive until they found a good spot to park and watch the stars and be alone together. How simple and sweet.

6. Splitting a milkshake

We seriously need more adorable shake and malt shops around here. Putting two straws in a shake to share is a date that everyone has to go on at some point in their lives, It's way too cliche and cute not to.

7. Going to the roller rink

This is way cooler than going ice skating. So much more old-fashion. It's possible you'll either need practice or experience, but still a must do.

8. Visiting the carnival

Imagine yourself in Ally from The Notebook's place. A cute boy named Noah just climbed the ferris wheel trying to ask you on a date. Now tell me that's not what you wish you had.

9. Challenging each other at the bowling alley

Why doesn't anyone like to take their date to the bowling alley anymore? It's such a classic and fun date.

10. Bike ride

Everyone always talks about cheap date ideas, but here is a perfect one. Leaving your phones behind and taking the bikes on a trail together is such a cute and unique date idea.

11. Setting up a picnic

If a guy asked me on a date, then set up a picnic for us somewhere, I'd know right then that I had made the right choice. It's such a thoughtful and simple thing to do for someone.

To The Woman Who Needs To Be Wanted, Don’t Let Men Be Your Vice

It will only make you begin to despise yourself.

By definition, a vice is a habitual or trivial defect... a shortcoming. Everyone has a vice.

Mine was men.

I always felt abandoned by the men in my life. I always clung to the opinions and attention of the boys around me...fighting for it in any way I could.

When I was younger, it was easy to get the attention of the boys my age by just dressing cute and having a bubbly personality.

As I got older though, I noticed that I was having to work harder and harder for their attention. Eventually, it turned into me feeling like I had to give myself to them in any way they asked to get their attention.

So that’s what I did.

I used my body as a way to fill some kind of void that I thought could be filled with the love of a man.

As the years went on, I felt myself clinging to not their love, but their lust.

I no longer cared about their love.

I just wanted to hear them call me hot, sexy, or beautiful. I knew they were using me.

I didn’t care.

I needed them to want me.

I needed them to beg.

I needed to feel needed.

For any woman who might feel as though a man’s lust for you can fill that deep void in your heart, take a step back. Trivial, temporary things like that will only make your heart heavier.

It will only make you begin to despise yourself.

There’s nothing wrong with living life the way you want or with who you want, but don’t use that lifestyle simply as a way to make you feel wanted.

Because my Prince Charming came into my life and I no longer needed any other man.

I finally felt truly loved and he helped me to learn that even without him, I would be more than a body.

He helped me see that I was a body, face, brain, smile, laugh, personality, and everything in between.

I am a strong woman now that I know my worth.

You are a strong woman.

Show your strength.

Know your worth.

As a fitness trainer, I know how much we love our job. How much we love the people we help and encourage. How much we never want to stop doing what we do. Yet, it's not all sunshine and rainbows. My boyfriend has to put up with some things that probably, kinda sorta are unconventional. But, he's living his dream (his words).

No matter what they teach, personal training, yoga, pilates, barre, HIIT, I could go on and on, but either way, they are passionate about the people they work with. This fire follows them throughout their life and will most definitely influence you.

1. Constant practicing

Don't be alarmed if you wake up to find her up and about practicing her routines for a class/client.

2. Gushing about a client who has been killing it 

No matter how much of a tough cookie we are, clients touch our hearts.

3. She's flexible

You. Are. Welcome. My best friends always introduce me to guys with, "She's really flexible ;)"

4. There's a routine, stick to it

We may be flexible, but don't come between her and her schedule. She is supported by her routine.

5. You are now a fitness class guinea pig

She needs you to help her rehearse. Approach her practice tests with enthusiasm and just have fun.

6. She'll never judge you

Don't ever feel pressured or intimidated. We love you for you. And, news flash, we are not perfect.

7. Always learning

Learning never ends. Learning new routines, learning new people, learning new emotions, learning new approaches to life.

8. And always eating

Teaching a few classes a day is tough on the body. We need our snacks. All. The. Time.

9. Stretches before bed... every night

No matter how tiring and long the day was, she will make sure to fit it a quick bend and no break.

10. The funny things that happened during class

Story time: One time I taught and my pants ripped. Only made the class more fun!

11. Shaker bottle vases

There's no need for vases, when shaker bottles do you justice. The first time my boyfriend brought home roses, I didn't have a vase so we improvised and used a shaker bottle. Now, that's the only vase we will ever need.

12. Free personal training

It's your dream come true. Fitness is at your right hand at all times. Plus, we will be pumped to start talking to you about our passion.

13. She talks endlessly about how well/not well your class went

Sometimes we kill it and sometimes... we fall a little short.

14.  Chugging water

We need to stay hydrated! Plus, she'll be your water tracker as she bugs you to drink with her. Shots! Shots! Shots (of water)!

15. Team work makes the dream work

There is no "I" in team and fitness instructors know the strength of collaboration and support. No one can go through journey a journey alone.

16. She wakes you up early to go on a run

Let's take a jog to the beach and watch the sunrise!

17. Protein, protein, and more protein

She doesn't have to be a weight lifter to assure that she nourishes her body with enough protein (from any source you prefer). My cupboard is always stocked with lentils and chickpeas.

18. Watching her watch fitness videos to get ideas

While you're reading the news, scrolling through Instagram, or just chilling out, she'll be watching workout videos or saving posts from fitness accounts.

19. Goes to bed super early

We need at least eight hours of beauty sleep and, let's be real, we are grandpas.

20.  She lives off of Spotify playlists

Wait, do you hear that song? What's it called, I need to add it to my workout playlist. Plus, she loves to sing (even if she isn't that good).

21.  Pulse 2, 3, 4

While she does chores, she'll start reciting her catchphrases and mantras.

22.  She's your forever cheerleader

Getting out of bed? If you don't squeeze it, no one else will! Washing the dishes? Let's go, you've got this! Running to the bathroom? One more minute! 30 more seconds! Mowing the lawn? You better feel it tomorrow!
