How being unsure about your relationship’s future actually reveals everything you need to know

I recently heard one of my friends tell her daughter that if she’s unsure about her boyfriend being the one, it means that he’s definitely not the one. Her logic was when you know, you know! And if you’re unsure, you don’t know…therefore he’s not it. I have to say that I disagree with this logic in a major way. I believe in psychics and people who can see into the future, but I’m sure not one of them. And I bet you aren’t either. So, you being unsure about your relationship doesn’t really predict anything about your future relationship status. But, I do think being unsure can tell you a lot about your current relationship. If you’re unsure about dating your boo, here’s what I think you should know about your relationship. Read more

Why it never pays to go slow in love

I’m a type A, get-er-done gal. I want everything to happen right now, if not five seconds ago. And I really do mean everything. I never take my time with anything. Love is no exception. I move quickly with matters of the heart and I think you should too. It’s a total myth that taking a new relationship slowly will yield better outcomes than rushing in. Taking your time with love really never pays off. And, actually, it backfires a lot. Here’s why. Read more

Why it’s OK for women to say “I love you” first

At brunch this weekend, one of my girlfriends was beside herself because her man hadn’t said he loved her yet. She’s normally bright and really full of life, but she was limp and sad throughout the entire brunch. I assumed that she told him that she loved him and he hadn’t said it back, even after she gave him time. And I was really sad for her. It feels so crappy when a feeling as important as love isn’t reciprocated. Then, it came out that she hadn’t even said “I love you,” yet. She was waiting for him to say it first and that’s what she was getting upset about! Why hadn’t she said those magic words? What was she waiting for? Well, she was waiting for him to say it first because she thought that’s how it’s supposed to be. She thought if the woman said “I love you” first, it kinda didn’t count. Read more

How to know if meeting your boo’s family actually went well

You did it! You met your boo’s family for the first time. You did the awkward dinner, got grilled during an interrogation, heard the boring stories and survived! Congrats! There’s a lot of relief in making it through the first meeting, so enjoy it. But, if you’re anything like me, that calm doesn’t last for long. It’s immediately pushed out the way by my desire for validation. Basically, all that goes through my head after an important meet-the-family moment is “Did they like me? Did they? Did they?” It’s a little needy, I know. But, I’m just being honest, folks. I like a little (honestly, more like a lot of) reinforcement and I’m guessing you do too. So, here’s how to know if meeting your boo’s family actually went well. Read more

Should his past determine your relationship’s future?

As you probably know, I’m way into the Bachelorette! I’m convinced Rachel is going to be the best Bachelorette of all time. I love her confidence, drive and suffer-no-fools attitude. Plus, I really like her age. She’s the oldest Bachelorette the series has ever had on and I’m so supportive of that. 31 is a fantastic age to meet the person you’re going to spend your life with. Much better than 24, in my opinion. And her race is a welcome change because #BacheloretteSoWhite. In the latest episode, one of Rachel’s suitors, DeMario, had an ex-girlfriend (or ex-friends-with-benefits…kinda unclear) come onto the show and reveal that he never truly ended things with her.
