December is coming around and so are the holidays. Here are some great ideas to keeping your relationship spicy and hot while its cold outside.

1. Ice Skating & Hot Chocolate

It's so cold outside and after a nice time ice skating with your boo thing, grab some hot chocolate and warm up. Ice skating is the perfect time to see if your baby's got you. Literally, if he's there for you when you fall.

2. Fireplace & Smores/Indoor Picnics

Nothing beats sitting by the fireplace and spending some quality time while making smores. Yummy! That sounds delicious as it is. But we don't have to just eat smores. How about a romantic picnic at the comfort of your home around the fireplace? You don't have to go outside for a picnic! Food for thought?

3. Tree Decorating & Holiday Music

You can't not decorating a Christmas tree with your significant other. Tree decorating gets you in the Christmas spirit. What comes after the tree is Christmas music, so it's time to get in the Christmas spirit. Also, holiday music just adds a little jazz. For example, "Baby, It's Cold Outside."

4. See The Lights

Go see the lights. They're always beautiful and it's always a great time to see them with someone you care significantly about. It will be cold if you plan to walk around, but you be my guest. It can be a bonding time while you walk. Just make sure to pack some gloves and a hefty jacket. But I am sure you can drive through certain neighborhoods in your car.

5. Christmas Movies & Chill

There are so many Christmas movies out there and Netflix always has some available. Now, my favorite would have to be the new one out, "Princess Switches" or, "The Nightmare Before Christmas." There is nothing better than just relaxing in your own home and just chilling with the one you love.

To The Girl Who's Still Crying Over the Guy She Never Dated

We've all been there, you never really dated but you might as well have...

We’ve all been there. Every single one of us. Whether we want to admit it or not, we all have been where you are; so let me just say, you’re not alone. No matter if your friends are the best people in the world, I’m sure they’ve had enough of your sadness over a boy who you were never really with. But that’s what’s scary, it feels like you were together. No matter the amount of time, maybe a month, maybe a year, no matter what, you had enough time to gain feelings for another person and be vulnerable; and that in itself is a tough pill to swallow. Now, the one person you thought would never hurt you, did just what they promised they wouldn’t do, and now you’re left putting the pieces of your life back together.

Enough of the sappy stuff. Let me tell you that life goes on. Whether over a boy, or a grade, or whatever it is, I have always told my friends, “You’re going to make it to tomorrow.” And although it seems like the hardest feat you’ve ever endured, you are going to make it to tomorrow. And then, you’re going to make it to the next day. So it may seem that the day you end things with the boy you thought you were going to be with, is the worst day in the world, you are going to make it to tomorrow.

But even though you are going to make it to tomorrow, that doesn’t mean the situation doesn’t suck. It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t cry. It doesn’t mean that you won’t be afraid or feel weird going to the bar you once loved, or the restaurant you guys would go to a lot, or the most common place to study on campus, in fear of seeing him. All of those feelings of uncertainty are totally normal, and in time, it will fade.

My friend once told me, this too shall pass.

So while you’re sad, or crying, or complaining about this boy, your friends might be telling you, “Get over it, you were never really together.” But I promise, it may take a while (seemingly forever), and as hard as it may be to believe right now, you will make it to tomorrow, and this too shall pass. Remember that.

With love from,

The girl who knows what it's like to have to get over the boy she never dated

He told me to never cut my hair short because it would make me look too masculine.

So, I sent him pictures of three different pixie cuts and asked him which one I should get.


He told me not to wear red lipstick because it made me look like a slut.

So, I bought every shade from blush rose to maroon.


He told me not to buy heels taller than one and a half inches tall because it's unattractive for a girl to be taller then the guy she is with.

My favorite shop was having a sell on a beautiful pair of three-inch stilettos. I bought them.


He told me that I was putting on a few extra pounds and that I shouldn't order dessert on our next dinner date.

Did he honestly think I would say no to the red velvet cake that our waitress offered?


He flirted with the waitress, saying that I should "look more like her."

I wrote down his number on our receipt before we left the restaurant.


He told me not to leave my "feminine products" on the counter because it's embarrassing.

When his friends came over for guys night, I organized my tampons and pads nicely on the bathroom shelf.


He told me that I couldn't talk to my best friend of 12 years because he was a guy.

I invited him to watch a movie with us at the local cinema the following week.


He told me not to order wine at the bar with him and his work friends because he didn't want me to seem "trashy."

I ordered jack and coke instead.


He told me not to be a feminist because it meant that I thought I was better than him.

My new "GIRL PWR" shirt is my favorite.


He told me to be silent.

He told me that I think too much and that I speak what I think too often.

He told me nobody cares about what I have to say.

He told me that the things I say don't matter.


So, I wrote a poem about him.
