Dating To Marry Isn’t Always A Bright Idea

There’s nothing wrong with wanting a commitment. There’s nothing wrong with wanting a partner you can picture spending forever alongside. There’s nothing wrong with feeling like a casual, no-strings-attached relationship isn’t for you. You can date with the hopes of creating a strong, lifelong bond with another person. But dating specifically with the goal of marriage in mind is going to put you under an unbelievable amount of pressure. Whenever you have an argument with this person, whenever they hurt you, whenever they make you feel like shit, your first instinct is going to be to preserve the relationship. You won’t even consider walking away from them, even when you’re clearly not working well together, because you won’t want to go back to living the ...

30 Non-Sexual Things That Feel Extremely Sensual  

These activities mentioned on Ask Reddit aren’t sexual — but they feel like it. 1. When you’re sitting next to someone and they lean over and reach across you to grab something. 2. When anyone raises their arms to stretch and their shirt gets lifted up slightly. It sometimes feel like an unintentional striptease. 3. Having someone else play with your hair. 4. When someone gives you a hand to help you up from a boat to the dock. 5. When a woman does that thing where she tucks her hair behind her ear while making direct eye contact. 6. Having your back scratched. 7. When a girl puts her hand up to yours and remarks on how yours is so much bigger. 8. When you’re sitting next to someone and your shoulders/thighs touch. 9. Certain phrases are very sexually char...

30 Signs Someone Has Zero Manners And Doesn’t Care About Anyone Other Than Themselves

Ask Reddit cannot stand when people don’t use manners. 1. When I’m out with a friend and we meet someone they know but I don’t, and that person makes no effort to introduce themselves to me or include me in the conversation. Like, I know I’m the designated Less Hot Friend but you don’t have to remind me of it. 2. Overstaying your welcome or inviting yourself to things. I had a friend who wouldn’t take no for an answer. Like get the hint. It’s midnight and you’ve been here all day. 3. Interrupting mid-sentence. I know I’m guilty at times, but it makes me feel like trash. 4. If they throw cash on the counter instead of handing it to the cashier. 5. Not saying, “Thank you,” to stuff like someone holding a door open for them or a waiter/waitress refilling thei...

6 Things That Happened When I Stopped Looking For My Forever Person 

1. I started enjoying the single life more. I used to get nervous about flirting with other people because I put way too much pressure on myself. I didn’t want to embarrass myself. I didn’t want to ruin my chances with someone special. I wanted our flirting to develop into something real. I wanted them to be the one. But now, I’m able to enjoy flirting without thinking too far down the line. Maybe something will come out of it, but if I never see their face again, that’s fine too. I’m able to enjoy today more since I’m not obsessed with what’s going to happen tomorrow. 2. I started focusing on my career aspirations more. I’m not able to control when the love of my life walks into my world. However, I have a bit more control over my career. I can choose wh...

5 Things I Learned From Cutting Out A Toxic Relative

1. Some people are never going to understand. They might understand walking away from a toxic relationship — but a toxic parent or sibling? They won’t be able to wrap their minds around it. They will encourage you to make amends. They will say things like, “But they’re family,” as if that means something. As if a blood relation gives someone permission to treat you like shit. When you cut out a toxic relative, you’re going to lose more than that person. You’re going to lose everyone who takes their side, everyone who thinks you’re overreacting — or worse, a heartless monster — for choosing your own sanity over your family. 2. It’s never as easy as you think. Even if you know you’re making the right decision, even if the people around you are surprisingly ...

How Each Zodiac Sign Lets Off Steam When They’re Stressed

Aries You do something artistic. You write or paint or crochet. You create something out of nothing. Taurus You pamper yourself. You draw a bath, light some candles, and turn off your phone for some me time.  Gemini You do something mindless. You play video games or watch a TV show you’ve already seen a thousand times. Cancer You clean your room, the bathroom, your car. You do a total cleanse. Leo You get drunk. You pour yourself a glass of wine and let yourself forget about your problems for a while. Virgo You bake bread, cookies, brownies, or cakes. You create desserts that you can share — or indulge in when you’re feeling sad again later. Libra You use retail therapy to feel better again. You treat yourself with a new outfit or set of nails. Scorpio Yo...

Paths are Made by Walking, Not Waiting: One Lesson We Forget in Hard Times

We waste our time waiting for a path to appear. But it never does. Because we forget that paths are made by walking, not waiting. And we forget that there’s absolutely nothing about our present circumstances that prevents us from making progress again, one tiny step at a time. So, let’s cut to the chase today: What we truly need to do is often what we most feel like avoiding. This is a harsh reality, even in our present times. Because, if we don’t go after what we want, we will never get it. If we don’t ask the right questions, we will always get the wrong answers. If we don’t take a step forward, we are always going to be standing in the same exact place. Life is a journey comprised of small steps. The key is to take these steps, every single day, even during harder times that require ...
