40 Signs Your Partner Loves You

My fiancé and I have been in a relationship for about two years now and our relationship, in my opinion, is a healthy and strong one because of how we treat each other. I’ve always been strong willed, I know exactly what I want and will work to achieve it. As such, I’ve had a clear list in my head of what my partner would need to do in order for me to trust that I could build my life with them. Below are my top 40 things that my partner and I do in order to keep our relationship healthy and strong.

  35. Doesn’t make you feel like you need to prove yourself or your love to them
  36. Makes sure you feel loved (simple things that telling you they love you, holding your hand in public, not hiding the relationship)
  37. Tries to make you smile

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.

She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

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.

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
