That night changed me.
Your high-energy is mistaken for well-rested. But the truth is, you’re exhausted.
When their dating profile says things like, “I deserve to be treated like a princess,” “looking for my next baby daddy,” “you must understand that I will love God more than you.”
I don’t have a clear vision of what my future will look like, but I do have an idea of what I should do in order to be successful, in order to be happy.
I’m sorry for the goodbye he never gave you, that you so very much deserve.
Just like actual sex, sexting is not supposed to be centered around your pleasure. It’s supposed to be about the both of you.
Who decided natural meant white?
White people did.
You are my first. First love, first partner, first loss. I fell in love with you the April of seventh grade. You have taught me that young love is real. You introduced me to the poetry of heartbreak.
Despite the stress and the due dates, the fights and hangovers and fumbled confusion that marked the years we spent finding ourselves, it was perfect.
Because I was trying to convince him to date me.
If we wish to improve the quality of our life, we must learn to understand the language of the heart.
I need you to know that you are the product of what is both hopeful and haunted within you, and it is okay to exist in this world as someone who is simply figuring out how to balance that.
If they are selfish in the bedroom, they are probably going to be selfish in the rest of your relationship.
Playing with their hair. Long stares. Biting their lip.
All I kept thinking was how fast can I get back to my car and get out of this awkward arm lock thing we had going on. I hated it.
When you left, I took a deep breath. And then I finally found rest.
I don’t like to release the energy I hold dear on things that don’t deserve said energy. I like to save it for when it matters most.
Now here we are, 29, single and forced together as we stand by the sides of our friends on their wedding day.
Reserve your Netflix time for workouts to shake up your exercise and minimize downtime on the couch later. An action-packed series can hold your attention so you don’t count down the minutes until the end of your workout.
Let yourself color outside the lines. Wouldn’t that be liberating?
We immerse ourselves completely in these new feelings, soaking up the butterflies and relishing every spark.
Don’t blame some innocent girl when the guilty party is the guy standing next to her.
Make yourself the priority that you deserve.
I was convinced something was wrong, and that I had to break up with you.
The work I do now is 100% my choice.
That’s what I am. Regretful.
I think you’d say, I care about you.
Surprise them with a gift.
I’ll sleep at the edge of the sheets on the colder nights to keep you warmer without your notice.
Being comfortable with the unknown is such a crucial part of your life and it makes making life decisions like mine much easier.
Don’t let them push you away; they need you more than they can communicate.
I love how powerful and magical your mind is.
For you are loved. You are seen. You are a miracle.
We transform their pain into passion, using our love to overcome every ounce of their hatred.
I am proud to be a female in this day and age because we are fearless.
Megan Gilbride, known best to her thousands of followers as “Wonderful U,” has spent the better part of the past decade building her name as a style blogger and influencer.
It was then that I realized that there was a world bigger than I was, and that was you.
I’m sorry if you’re tired of me saying that I’m sorry. I’m not sorry that you came into my life or I came into yours, though.
1. I stopped at a red light and saw an attractive young man jamming out to “Stairway to Heaven,” in a Chevy truck next to me, but as soon as I looked at him, he flashed his blinding white teeth at me as his eyes started oozing out tar and smoke billowed from his nostrils – then the light turned green, but when I pressed on the gas as hard as I could, the engine began to sputter.
In the era of selfies, we still struggle to accept our bodies and our looks.
Don’t allow one person or group of people to make you believe that you shouldn’t bring up your personal struggles with anyone.
We have never said the words I like you aloud but our body language has implied it.
There are a myriad of other things they might do, like slamming doors, giving away something of yours, or offering you dessert that you’re allergic to or when you’re dieting.
Our twenties are glazed in a raging insatiability. No matter how much we do, there is more to be done.
We may have been taught that relationships need to be difficult, but actually they shouldn’t be. The real ones don’t have to be.
Ghosting me and then turning-up again weeks later to see if I was still interested – when he was clearly just using that time to follow-up with someone he liked more than me, but then he got dumped.

Thank you for choosing me out of all the other million matches and knowing that I’m the only one you want.
There’s nothing like getting lost in a children’s book and finding whole new path to your own heart.
