Relationships can be so scary. Before you dive right into one, you need to have a clear and happy mind. These tips will help you find a happy and health relationship.

Self Love

Before you love anyone else, you must love yourself first. Once you accept yourself for who you are, it helps you look for someone who is as loving as you. Loving yourself makes you feel less stressed and anxious too! We all have rough days and toxic past relationships, but the love you give yourself will help you move past that. The past is in the past, it is not your future. When you love yourself, you don't need another person's approval or consent on the way you feel about yourself. Self love is your key to a positive relationship. Just being good to yourself will help boost your confidence and set your priorities straight.

Be Ready To Be Completely Honest With Your Partner

I cannot stress enough the importance of honesty. If you are honest and vulnerable with your partner, things will be so much easier! This helps you connect in ways youve never experienced before. It can be terrifying telling someone about all of your insecurities, problems, and fears but it will form a strong bond between both of you. For example, maybe your biggest insecurity is not being super outgoing and he says his is the same, you both and bond and work on being more outgoing together! Honesty will be your best friend in a relationship.

Keep A Good Balance

Wether you are a high school student, college student, or an adult, we all have important responsibilities. It is very important to keep a balance between work/school, your significant other, and your family and friends. If you don't keep this balance, you could lose yourself. Each aspect of your balance is important in different ways. Maybe you get comfort from your friends and family, but get love and excitement from your significant other. If you get too much of one aspect, you could find pleasure in only one thing and start to turn into someone you're not. Keep a calendar or schedule of times and dates to help keep a balance!

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.
