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?

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

What to do if you think he’s starting to ghost you

When I’m in the very beginning stages of dating someone, I’m nervous. And sometimes it’s cute, fun nerves that come from young love. But, often the nerves stem from not being certain where the relationship stands and worrying about if he’s going to hurt my feelings. I know, not my typical schmoopy boopy take on love, but these feelings are just as true for me as my enthusiasm for love. What I worry about the most, and what I hear my friends worry about a lot, is getting ghosted. Ghost is the idea of someone you’re starting to fall for vanishing is tough to swallow. If you think you’re about to or actually are getting ghosted, here’s what to do. Read more

The Secret To Being A Better Flirt

The key to flirting is to have an inquisitive mind. Having an inquisitive mind is having a flirtatious mind. Flirting is really all about curiosity. It's amazing that how many people don't know how to flirt, or choose not to. When I'm on Bumble (which by the way is fun), or any other dating app, or any other way to meet, it's amazing how many people don't ask questions at all. Read more
