Like classic, text-book style foreshadowing, I read my fortune from between my fingers at our local Chinese buffet. “A new romance is in your future,” it read. It was like all of my dreams were coming true and this was my confirmation. To me in this vulnerable moment, it was a sign from divinity itself that I would suffer no more! My time had finally come and I would no longer be the eternally-single friend. I had finally found the one….. Or so I thought.
I lock my bike to the metal railing of the empty bar patio. I press my face up against the glass window to mitigate the glare from the neon bright lights from both sides. The bar is the only dark spot on the whole block. Chairs are stacked on tables and the liquor cabinets are empty.
No, I haven't been in a relationship or personally seen this happen to anyone. I know so many of you think I may not have the right to speak on this issue but I'll still have an opinion nonetheless.
Hey guys or girls—I'm not judging here if you are gay or not—I know it can be hard to tell if a girl likes you or not as more than just a friend. So I’m about to tell you guys some ways you can tell if a girl likes you or not and so hoping these ways will help you tell more easily.
I remember sitting in a Las Vegas hotel room watching romantic comedies, trying to find the ending I wanted us to have, hoping that something would make me feel better or give me some kind of hope. Someone had recently told me about a picture of her new man and our dog, well, her dog now. No matter how much I tried not to, I wished deep down that was still me. I felt like I was trapped in a sci-fi film where I had been replaced out of my own body and was watching someone else live in it for me.

So as I sat there and watched storyline, after storyline, and none of them seemed to tell our story. I realized either I'm the only one who's going through what I'm going through or there is a large group of heartbroken people with no one who relates to their story. With that being said, I felt it was time for me to be the person that related.
My fiancé and I met online. Yeah, I know. The scary, dangerous place that people say you should never meet someone. Well, of course, you have to be cautious of who you're talking to before you give out too much personal information, but it's like that with anyone, no matter if you meet them in person or online first.

The feeling of excitement filled my stomach, making it want to drop. This rushing, enjoyable yet sickening feeling ran through my veins. When my eyeliner came out as perfect as liquid liner can be, I continued my dance to Taylor Swift. My toilet almost breaking when I jumped on top using the foundation brush as my microphone.
Relationships are complicated. So complicated, in fact, that we go to the internet to try and figure out what something means or how to know you've found the person you're "supposed" to marry. I am as guilty of this as anyone. How soon is too soon to invite them to meet family? How soon is too soon to invite him to family gatherings? How soon is too soon to say I love you? What do you do when they're sick and you've only been dating a month?
