10 Things I Want To Tell My Future Husband

10 Things I Want To Tell My Future Husband

I can't be the only girl who has thought of this.


There is this stigma that college students don't want a committed relationship because of the rise of "hookup" culture. For myself, that's just not the case. If I do happen to find "the one" I don't want to rush and get married but I do want my future (way into the future) boyfriend or husband to know a little bit about me. (I don't believe you have to sign a paper to prove to the world that you're committed to someone, I'm just using a case scenario here.) Let's start from the top:

10. I believe in monogamy.

There is so much backlash in the millennial generation surrounding people with one significant other because it's become "the norm" to get with several different people and not want to commit to one single person. I just have that "old school" idea that I want one person who is going to be faithful to me and vice versa on return. I have a problem with "hookup" culture, but it's just not for me.

9. I need you to love animals like I do.

I have the biggest place in my heart for animals, especially dogs. I need somebody who is willing to go to a pet store with on a regular basis and share my obsession of taking photos of my dog wherever I go. I need someone who is willing to be okay with me going up to every random animal I see and wanting to make friends (Yes, I know that's a horrible idea and sometimes animals have rabies but still that's beside the point).

8. I have anxiety.

I need someone who isn't going to be patient with me when I'm uncomfortable in a social situation one having a moment where I just feel panicked. I need someone who is going to calm me down and just talk it out with me instead of someone who would just get frustrated and not want to deal with me. I need someone who will at least be empathetic in a sense.

7. I'm a picky eater.

I've been a picky all of my life, but I do try to make myself try new foods even though I tend to dislike the majority that I try. I need my significant other to realize that I'm not trying be insulting by not wanting to try been foods, I just have a general dislike for many foods. I'd love to try new cooking, but I can't have somebody who is going to be offended if I don't like it.

6. I like to have quality time.

I'm not somebody who's okay with only seeing each other if it would just be in the morning or at night. I need quality time and I hate spending too much time by myself. I'm not a crazy, clingy person but I do expect to spend a good amount of time with the people care about.


More than any other creature, I despise those hairy little monsters. If you have a pet tarantula, you might as well consider the relationship to be over with.

4. I have trust issues.

Only the closest people I trust(about less than a handful) know absolutely everything about me. I'm not somebody who likes to brag about my life and I'm not the biggest fan of those who think Iran okay to act like that.

3. I don't find meaning in superficial items.

Sure, some girls love to receive jewelry and sparkly whatever, but I prefer sentimental or heartfelt objects. I want something that I can keep forever and know how much time and thought was put into it.

2. I am a perfectionist.

I'm that girl with a morning routine who spends hours trying to make sure my makeup looks nice and my outfit matches. I put a nice outfit on just to stay in the house because it makes me feel good. I'm not trying to please anyone but myself when I do this. I don't need somebody who will the under the impression that I need to look good for them. No, sir, I look good for me!

1. I'm a big fan of random things.

I love stand-up comedy and black and white movies. If you want to go to a rock concert or a country concert, I'm down. If you listen to a variety of music or also have random collections, we'll be a perfect match. I enjoy wearing monochromatic colors one day and then something psychedelic the next. I like to fish, but only to throw them back in the water. I listen to music that correlates to my mood and I'm always up for adventures.

The most important thing that I'd want to tell my future boyfriend or husband is that I just want happiness more than anything in this world. Everyone deserves a chance at that.

XOXO- just a college student who's an endless dreamer.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only did she launch her beauty marketing career at legendary Smashbox Cosmetics, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
