I lived through the tragedies so that you don't need to, too.

If there's one thing I learned about myself during my last two years of college, it's that I'm a magnet for fuckboys. And I'm not talkin' those weak ass refrigerator magnets. I'm talkin' the heavy-duty, can't-pull-it-apart-even-if-your-life-depended-on-it type sh*t.

At this point, I'm pretty sure "Ruin my life." is tattooed across my forehead. I've been to hell and back with some of these boys, but if there's one thing I know now, it's that if you ever receive any of these pathetic statements, you need to dump his ass before it's too late.

1. “Would you ever want to get back together?”

Giphy

HAHAHAHA are you f*cking serious? YOU broke up with ME... multiple times!

2. “I don’t deserve you.”

Giphy

This is the biggest cop out EVER. It's every boy in the world's way of saying, "I'm trying really hard to get you to break up with me so I don't seem like a dick."

3. "I have a girlfriend."

Giphy

How tragic is it that this line doesn't even phase me anymore when the guy finally decides to 'fess up?

4. *Does absolutely nothing to show he cares* “I care about you a lot.”

Giphy

Didn't anyone ever teach these fuckboys that actions speak louder than words? We're not stupid. Don't say sh*t you know you don't mean. It doesn't benefit either of us.

5. Alternatively, “You mean so much to me.”

Giphy

Uh huh. See above.

6. “She and I were on a break.”

Giphy

Yes, that was totally obvious from your daily conversations and her need to know where you were during this so-called break. Honestly, how dumb do guys think we are?

7. “I’m gonna miss you so much when you move back home.”

Giphy

OK, depending on your relationship with the boy, this could be a really nice thing to hear someone say. But often, it's also a filler statement, so take it with a grain of salt.

8. “I’m not really sure where she and I stand right now.”

Giphy

OK, then figure it out and let me know when you do???

9. “I wasn’t ignoring you. [Insert generic excuse/lie here.]”

Giphy

OK to be fair sometimes this is legit. But only like 25% of the time. And if it's becoming a repetitive thing, then girl, what the hell are you still doing talking to him?

10. *Any time an Ex hits his line* “We’re just friends.”

Giphy

Yup, heard that one before. Hell, we've all given that one before.

11. “I never use condoms, and I’ve been OK so far.”

Giphy

Does raw feel better? Yeah, of course. Am I ready for a child or an STI? Hell f*cking no. Wrap it up, bud.

Today is Bisexuality Day and I'm more than ready to give all the bisexuals some love by breaking the stigma. I see you, I hear you, I appreciate you.

Bisexuliaty is a sexual orientation where people can form attraction and/or relationships to more than one gender. More than half of the LGBTQ+ community identifies as bisexual but it comes with a ton of bias, discrimination, and violence. And, honestly, bisexuals tend to be forgotten becuase bi-erasure wants to hold onto biphobia to question the existence and legitimacy of bisexuality.

There isn't one person the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hasn't affected. While COVID-19 is risking everyone's physical health, it's also destroying the world's economy and personal finances, weakening mental health, wreaking havoc on education... and, well, the list goes on.

Among the many things being impacted is love.

A Couple's Wedding In Peru Was Postponed By COVID-19, But A Lifetime Of Love Is Worth The Wait

"We'd prefer to wait and have the wedding that both of us have always thought of."

During their first semester at Instituto de Empresa (IE Business School) while working on graduate degrees in Madrid, Spain, soon-to-be-newlyweds Rory and Gigi met when they were placed in a workgroup together — and the rest was history. Now, four years after their relationship began, the couple's fall plans to get married in Perú, where Gigi is originally from, have since been postponed by COVID-19.

Though things haven't always been easy for the pair because of immigration, starting a skincare business together, and now, canceling their dream wedding because of the pandemic, they have always worked together as a team (maybe we should all be in a workgroup with our future spouses).

A Bumble Couple's Wedding Was Canceled By COVID-19, But Nothing Could Come Between This Perfect Match

"The whole purpose of all the stress and time and tears was that we love each other and that was all that mattered."

Shortly after Kaihla's sister made her a dating profile on Bumble (despite her fear of being catfished), she matched with Shanna, and their chemistry was quickly undeniable. So much so that only a month and a half into dating, Shanna told her best friend "I think I'm going to marry her," and eventually, the nonprofit worker and elementary PE teacher duo proved this to be true.

In the fourth episode of a new docuseries called "Pandemic Weddings" by SoulPancake, the couple opens up about how they met, the difficulties of canceling a non-refundable wedding of their dreams (that took a year and a half to plan), as well as the pain of having family members who didn't support their marriage use the pandemic as a convenient excuse not to come.

This fall was my boyfriend and I's two-year anniversary! In the past for special occasions, we've typically gone out for a movie and dinner or just did something fun in general. However, in the year of COVID, we didn't really feel safe doing something like that.

Instead, we wanted to try something new that kept us significantly more socially distanced. Luckily, I found a TikTok trend a few months ago that gave me the perfect idea! The Target TikTok trend blew up all over for couples and friends alike. It seemed like a fun activity for us but also a good way to get each other gifts that we might not have thought about.

If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.

And rightfully so! Because is there really anything sexier than someone who cares about using their voice to be the change they want to see? In my opinion, no... not much, honestly.

Any medium- to dark-skinned woman knows how difficult it can be to find the right SPF. Most mass-market SPF products are catered to lighter skin tones, and the potent UV-blocking titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have a way of leaving an unflattering white or grey cast on the skin.

Each state has different links and different websites, so this information primarily pertains to Florida residents.
