6 Things You Wish Your Boyfriend Knew

When you wish your boyfriend would get subtle hints.

6 Things You Wish Your Boyfriend Knew

When you're in a committed relationship for longer than a year, you learn a lot about each other, such as what your significant other likes, what they don't like, etc... You may also think they know everything, but who are you kidding. Do men really know everything about us women? What our hidden meanings are? So many times, we answer yes to a question but really mean no. Do you think they really pick up on those clues? Probably not, since they're usually too logical and rational to do so. When you've been in a committed relationship with your boyfriend for a year or so, however, he doesn't really know everything that he should be doing.

1. Please, please, please flaunt me everywhere.

Take pictures of me, post me on your social media, change your relationship status to say that you're actually in a relationship with me, tell all your friends you've got me, flaunt me at a restaurant, show that I'm yours. Just please show and tell to the world that I'm yours because it makes me feel wanted and valued even more from you.

2. Please cuddle, kiss, hug, any affection all the time.

I love when you give me random kisses, or when you reach over to cuddle me. It makes me feel so warm and gooey inside.

3. I want PDA, Public Display of Affection

When we are walking to a store, I like when you reach for my hand, or when we are out in public and you kiss me. It just shows that you're into me only and that I'm the only girl you see. It makes me feel good.

4. I like it when you invite me to something that's important to you

When you want me to come to one of your games, or want me to come with you to a friend's, it makes me feel wanted and that you're happy when I'm around you.

5. Even if I don't wear jewelry, buy my jewelry

I know, it's kind of a contradiction to buy my jewelry even if I don't wear it. I know you're being practical when you don't buy it because it's possible I'll never wear it. but just getting a necklace, or a bracelet from you is sweet and kind that you went to the store and thought of me when you picked out the piece of jewelry.And honestly, I want to brag to my friends that my boyfriend got me this piece of jewelry. I mean let's be real, most girls are into that.

6. Quality time means everything

I love going out to places and being around you and with other people, but what I love most is when we have quality time together. Such as, making dinner together then snuggling up on the couch for a movie, or going on a hike together, whatever it may be, I love when it's just you and me and nobody else around.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I Watched 'The Social Dilemma' And YIKES, I'm Terrified For The Next Generation's Mental Health

Millennials can remember a time without online social affirmation, but we may be the last ones.

The Social Dilemma / Netflix

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.


I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.

I was so excited to vote in my local primary election in August. I eagerly researched my local candidates, combed the newspaper for profiles and policy positions, and shared infographics on Insta about voting deadlines. I considered myself a keen voter.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

This $40 Silk Sleep Mask Gives Me The Best Sleep I've Ever Had — I Never Go Anywhere Without It

Crane And Canopy just redefined the meaning of "beauty sleep".


- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.
