P.S. Don’t Forget To Tell Your Dad You Love Him

I woke up feeling weak, powerless and uninterested in getting the day started. It was partially because I hardly slept and also I was still in disbelief that it was already Monday. I dragged my sorry butt out of bed to the bathroom where I stared at myself in the mirror for a few seconds…

Yo, Dude, I’m Married

“Hey, how ya doing?” asks some random guy at the gym. Meanwhile, my face is covered in sweat. I look at him like, “why are you talking to me?” But, I don’t say that. Instead, I proceed to say I’m good, you? He then goes into a whole explanation about how he’s been watching me…

Stop Settling For Shitty Love For Fear Of Being Alone

As women, we tend to settle for men because we feel as if we cannot do any better. “Oh, he treats me pretty well, so that’s good enough for me,” we tell ourselves and our girlfriends. If we gain weight, develop acne, have any sort of body imperfection, we start to feel self-conscious, which leads…

It Shouldn’t Hurt, But It Still Does

I know I shouldn’t, but whenever I look at pictures of you, it still hurts. It hurts when I see you tell someone “I love you,” when I know in the same breath, you said that to me. It hurts when I see pictures of you with friends with a capture “friends forever” when in…

Dear Best Friend, I Miss Making Memories Together

Dear Best Friend, I miss the summer we swore off men. Just the two of us spent time exploring all the niceties of Pennsylvania. We had just broken up with our boyfriends and wanted to just chill.

A Letter To Myself When I’m Feeling Negative

Dear Self, Please shut your mouth. Your husband lost his job last year and so, you moved back home and found a part-time job while he was on unemployment.

If He Isn’t Faithful, He’s Not For You

From what I’ve learned, there is no such thing as the “perfect guy.” No matter what, the man you marry or date will always have flaws. Once you accept his flaws, your relationship will soar. However, cheating is not considered a flaw. When he’s unfaithful to you, that should be the end of your relationship….

I Promise, Good Guys Still Exist

“I’m just not sure that there are good guys out there anymore,” my best friend said to me. “I’m actually pretty frustrated.” I assured her that there are still good guys out there. She merely hasn’t met the right guy as of yet. But, one day, she’ll meet him. She vouched to be single for…

Dear Men, Is It So Hard To Be A Good Significant Other?

Don’t Forget To Appreciate Your Significant Other

He’s in the kitchen making dinner as I sit down and relax after a long day at work. I look at him as he’s flipping the turkey burgers and making sure our sweet potato fries don’t burn. He’s attentively looking at the burgers to see if they’re done. As he pulls the fries out of…
