7 Presents To Give Yourself This Valentine's Day To Remind You Your Worth Isn't Based On Your Relationship Status

7 Presents To Give Yourself This Valentine's Day To Remind You Your Worth Isn't Based On Your Relationship Status

Instead of hating the holiday because you're single, use it to foster love for yourself.


If you're not in a relationship, Valentine's Day is usually a huge bummer. Everyone else is running around in love, shopping for their significant other, while you're just waiting for holiday candy to be discounted.

Well, no more. It's time to stop letting your relationship status determine your self-worth. This Valentine's Day, treat your self with some positivity and presents from you, for you.

1. Bath bombs

Nothing is more relaxing than a hot bath, so focus on some self-care this Valentine's Day, throw on a face mask, drop one of these bad boys in the tub, and relax.

2. An obnoxiously large stuffed bear

A stuffed bear that's almost the size of you isn't just cute, it's also a damn good body pillow. Buy one of these and you'll honestly never need a man again.

3. Fancy chocolates

You are gold, baby. Solid gold. You deserve more than discounted leftover candy at Walgreens. Eat some of these delicious gourmet truffles and get that bath ready, we're in for one hell of a night in.

4. Candles

Honestly, nothing is better than a good smelling apartment. The right candle can turn your whole mood around, so take some deep breaths and let the smell of jasmine or vanilla wash over you.

6. A Himalayan salt lamp

Not only are they just downright cute, Himalayan salt lamps help enhance breathing and purify the air. Having one of these lamps in your bedroom gives the room a gorgeous glow and will benefit your health. We're taking care of ourselves in 2019.

6. A bouquet of roses

What's better than having roses delivered to you? Probably nothing. Red roses are so gorgeous and smell incredible. You don't need a boyfriend in order to be deserving of flowers, so it's time to splurge on yourself. You're worth it.

7. A necklace with your initial

"T as in Troy?" No, more like your own initial because you love yourself. A cute little dainty necklace is the perfect gift, especially for yourself.

When you're single, Valentine's Day can seem like a miserable holiday where everyone is in love but you, but that's dumb. You're still badass even if you don't have a boyfriend. Your worth as a person doesn't increase when you're in a relationship, and it sure as hell doesn't decrease when you aren't.

Feeling this way is something we've been taught. We're taught to be envious of others' romances when it comes to Valentine's Day. You shouldn't be. Use this time to grow more in love with yourself, more confident in who you are. You don't need someone else in your life to prove to yourself or others that you matter.

The only love that never fails you is the love you have for yourself. You'll find someone when the right person comes along, so don't stress it. You are still a wholesome person with or without a significant other, so don't let Valentine's Day try to change your mind.

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
