What I Learned After a Year of Being Single

I feel that this title really explains everything I will be talking about today, so let’s just dive in to the interesting parts that you’re here for.

I’ve always been independent. I went 19 years of my life doing well on my own, never needing anyone, and generally getting by on my own skill, wit, and ability. To me, dating was just a luxury, because I don’t need a man.

What I learned being single

And then I had my first real, serious relationship and it ended in flames a year ago. It was traumatic how upset I was then, because I had indulged in that luxury enough I had thought it was a necessity. A year later, I’ve come back to my senses. The part of me that I lost in that year and a half relationship have come back, and I couldn’t be happier. And it’s reminded me of why being single is kind of the best. Continue reading

Why My Boyfriend is an Idiot

Happy anniversary to me!

Six months ago this guy came into my life and completely swept me off my feet. He introduced me to the best sushi in Eugene, my love of the Springfield Winco that doesn’t make you pay for bags and several Japanese words that he definitely overuses. And he’s kind of the sweetest person on the planet.

His goal? To be on my blog. So today, in honour of our six month anniversary (that’s a whole half year, folks), I am making a list of reasons he is the complete idiot that I love. Continue reading

How to Keep a Boy (From a Semi-Expert)

Well, I kind of lied when I said “How to Tell if a Boy Likes You (And Other Real Boy Advice)” was the last part of my “How to…Boy” series. But I also didn’t expect to get in a relationship, so you’ll have to forgive me.

What I Didn’t Know About Relationships

For the past few years I have been giving love/dating advice to girls all around the world. In that time, I have gone simply off of what I knew from movies and what my own gut instinct told me. I thought I knew everything about relationships, but I don’t.

I’ve been in a relationship for about a month now (my anniversary’s on Saturday whoop!) and it’s taught me a lot about something I thought I knew a lot about. I didn’t expect for my relationship to teach me so much about human interaction. But it has.

We expect that movies and books are accurate depictions of how humans interact, and if our lives do not reflect those stories then we are not living the correct human lifestyle. Wrong! My relationship varies several different ways from how movies depict the typical college romance, but it doesn’t feel wrong, or that I’m not living to my potential. Everything feels right, and I don’t want to change it. Continue reading
