10 Not-So-Obvious Signs You’re in a Toxic Relationship

11/05/2022

You probably have heard the words “toxic relationship” thrown around at one point in your life—maybe when your friend has spoken about her not-boyfriend boyfriend or maybe when reading a review about a movie like 365 DNI. But the truth is, it’s hard to fully understand what it means to be in a toxic relationship. According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of “toxic” is “relating to or being extremely harsh, malicious, and harmful.” So, yeah, you can only imagine what that looks with someone who…

WHAT NOT TO DO Post-Breakup

02/05/2022

I became a heartbreak coach because I am most committed to sharing with women what not to do, thanks to all the ways I made my recovery over a handful of breakups so much worse. The greatest lesson I’ve learned from my romantic relationships that didn’t work out is that there’s no way around the pain—only through it. It’s natural to instinctively want to avoid, deny, cover over, and/or repress your pain when moving through a breakup, but I promise you, these coping mechanisms never work in…

SEX ON THE FIRST DATE: Is It For Me?

29/04/2022

Sex on the first date has always been taboo, but the reasons are shifting. And it doesn’t have to be a big no-no, a source of shame, or a big decision. Ultimately, it comes down to knowing yourself and where you’re at emotionally and mentally, but of course it’s a nuanced call. That’s why we came to sexologist, licensed clinical social worker, therapist, and relationship expert Shamyra Howard to give us her professional input about sex on the first date. “First, let’s discuss the definition…

What Kind of ARGUER ARE YOU IN A RELATIONSHIP?

28/04/2022

There’s no such thing as a perfect relationship in which neither party picks a fight, ever. If that is the case, chances are both parties are avoiding the hard stuff, or not getting deep and vulnerable with one another to express how they really feel about a situation, a moment, or something that was said. We can tell a lot about ourselves and our romantic partners by the way we respond to inevitable conflict, so it’s a good idea to detect what your argument…

How Do You Know You Love Someone?

26/04/2022

You know the feelings you get when you’re falling for someone new: the butterflies, the constant desire to want to chat or text them and the sudden need to buy a completely new wardrobe just to impress them, even though your wallet totally disagrees with you. When you first start falling for someone, the feelings can get really intense and there’s a sense of excitement that’s hard to describe with words. When you’re beginning to fall in love with someone, the symptoms can feel similar. That’s…

Solid Advice for Your FIRST LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIP

15/04/2022

Perspective is a wondrous thing. I often think about the times I would have benefited from hearing some advice from my future self, and without doubt, my first relationship was a time I really could have done with some hard-hitting words of wisdom. I was madly in love and living on what felt like cloud nine, but the drama and the emotional rollercoaster that came with it were simply exhausting. Within months, I became someone I no longer recognized, and by our…

Just a Bunch of Random Things That Make Men Horny

13/04/2022

Listen, so long as everything is cool and consensual, what turns you on is totally your own business. That’s because, similarly to kinks and fetishes, turn-ons are singular to every individual. For one person, it can be super random—like seeing someone’s tan lines. For another person, it could be something a bit more expected—like seeing a naked person stand in front of you. Either way, what makes you horny is simply what makes you horny. But because not every turn-on has…
