A Letter To My Husband On Our One-Year Marriage Anniversary

Dear Hubby, I’m listening to “Take Me Home” by Phil Collins. Do you remember in Tennessee when I played that song and you told me you’d turn it on as we were leaving our first apartment together? You teased me while I held back tears over the fact that we were leaving. I thought my…

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…

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.

This Is How You Stay Happy In A Relationship

There’s no such thing as the perfect guy. As humans, we all have flaws and are not even close to being imperfect. “I’m imperfectly flawed,” my husband said. “Just like Steve jobs.” Some people are easy to understand and then, there are opens are who hard to grasp. My husband is one of the harder…

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….

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