Hey gentlemen, hint hint.

11 Simple Gestures Your Long Time Girlfriend Hopes She Doesn't Have To Ask You For
Roberto Nickson

1. Pick her up for a date.

Arriving to the restaurant with reservations is a huge bonus too. It shows that you've set that time out of your schedule for her. Even though you may live with her,

2. Open the door for her.

Show her that you haven't gotten used to her being around all of the time. You'll still go out of your way to respect her for the lady she is.

3. Surprise her with flowers from the store or hand pick them.

"You shouldn't waist your money on flowers." You may have heard this. It might honestly be true for some women, but for most.. it's a trap and she feels self-conceded telling you go buy her flowers.

4. Surprise her with something you heard her mention in passing.

Honestly... just surprise her with anything of her favorite. It'll make her happy and lets her know you pay attention.

5. Hold her hand.

Don't ask why, we just feel safe, loved, and comforted by the small touch of your hand. Personally, I feel pretty lucky to be with my guy, so holding his hand is just one way I like to show him off. ;)

6. Let her wear your jacket.

Coming from experience, we're sorry if you warned us that it's chilly outside and we don't listen. Please please please let us wear it anyway.. your patience doesn't go unrecognized.

7. Cook for her.

And if you can't cook, cook with her.

8. Compliment her sincerely.

When you pick her up for that date, "You look stunning," goes a long way.

9. Bring her coffee.

OR bring her a favorite lunch or even a sonic drink. It'll make her day and she'll hear how lucky she is the rest of her day from her co-workers.

10. Ask her about her day.

This is simple right? It should be. I've heard a lot of women just start talking about their day to their husband. The husband's response is usually, "uh-huh." What?? You LIVE together. Ask about each others day, because I promise she'll talk about it anyway.

11. Have some nice pictures taken.

Yes, she'll pick out the outfits and do all the scheduling so no worries there. Asking her what she thinks of getting spring pictures done may surprise her though (in a good way).

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year.
