To My Best Friends Ex: How Dare You

To My Best Friends Ex: How Dare You

Who's the joke now?

Dear Ex-Who-Tried-To-Play-My-Best-Friend,

I honestly can't believe you didn't think you were going to get caught. It's not like you were doing it secretly, it was so obvious. I don't even think you tried to do it secretly, it was so public. Did you think that my best friend wasn't going to find out? Well, you thought wrong!

All those comments on your Facebook posts from girls saying your cute and that you need to text them back.

You were dating three girls from the same school. Like, come on if you're going to cheat don't do it with girls that all go to the same school. Even though all three of them were in different grades doesn't mean that they can't have a mutual friend, which they did.

You played her one too many times for her not to catch up to what game you were playing. Telling her that you guys were going to be together and then dating another girl at the same time. It sounds like complete bullshit to me. You told her everything she needed to hear to take you back.

I bet you just wanted to see girls fight over you because it seems like that's what you were doing. Putting words in her mouth telling the other girls that she was calling them out their names and saying she wanted to fight them.

She even asked you straight to your face if there were any other girls and you looked her in the eyes and said no. You lied to her and the other girls. And for that, I'm glad all the people involved found out what was really going on and your true colors.

No girl should go through that, you shouldn't have to talk to three different girls. She really liked you which is why she always took you back when you came running back to her. You should have seen that what you were doing was going to hurt her because her feelings were genuine, but all you were looking for was something to brag about to your friends.

Well, brag about this, now that all three of the girls now know who you are, who are you with? Tell your friends that because of you, my best friend knows that she can do better than guys that want to cheat on her. And that she knows that she is a strong beautiful human being and that nothing was wrong with her, but with you because you weren't worthy of her love.

You taught her that actions are way better than words because your words to her were "I love you" but what you really meant was "I like that fact that you are still with me after the fact that I cheated on you twice already." All she was, was a joke to you but who's the joke now?

Now she's realized what she deserves. She's dating a guy that loves her just as much as she loves him and he's ONLY dating her.

An Open Letter To My Boyfriend's Mom

A simple thank you is not enough.

Your son and I have been dating a while now and I just wanted to thank you for everything.

Wow, where do I start? Ever since the day your son brought me into your home you have shown me nothing but kindness. I have not one negative thought about you and I am truly thankful for that. I first and foremost want to thank you for welcoming me with open arms. There are horror stories of mothers resenting their son's girlfriends and I am blessed there is no resentment or harsh feelings.

Thank you for treating me like one of your children, with so much love but knowing exactly when to tease me.

Thank you for sticking up for me when your son teases me, even though I know it’s all in good fun it's always comforting knowing you have someone by your side.

Thank you for raising a man who respects women and knows how to take responsibility of mistakes and not a boy who is immature and doesn’t take responsibility.

Thank you for always including me in family affairs, I may not be blood family but you do everything you can to make sure I feel like I am.

Thank you for letting me make memories with your family.

There is nothing I value more in this world then memories with friends and family and I am thankful you want and are willing to include me in yours. I have so much to thank you for my thoughts keep running together.

The most important thing I have to thank you for is for trusting me with your son. I know how precious and valuable he is and I won't break his heart. I will do everything I can to make him happy. This means more than you could ever imagine and I promise I will never break your trust.

The second most important thing I must thank you for is for accepting me for who I am. Never have you ever wished I looked like another girl or acted like another girl. You simply love and care for me and that’s all I could ever ask. Every person in this world is a unique different person and understanding that means a lot.

The third most important thing I must thank you is teaching me how to one day in the future treat a potential girlfriend that I may interact with as a mother. I am not a mother, but I one day plan to be. If I ever have a son it is because of how you treated me that I am able to be a humble loving mother to this new face that could one day walk into my door. How you have treated me has taught me how I should one day be in the future and I thank you for that.

This may seem all over the place but that’s how my brain gets when I try and thank you for everything you have done for me. It’s all so much and even the little things are so important so I promise my scattered thoughts are all with good intentions and not meant to bombard you. I just want to get the idea across to you that you are important and special to me and everything you do does not go unnoticed.

I’m The Kind Of Person Who Is Happiest When I'm In A Relationship, There Is Nothing Wrong With That

Please stop acting like there is.


There seems to be this odd notion that it's not alright to be the kind of person that prefers being in a relationship to being single. Usually, when I mention to people that I tend to be the happiest when I'm in a relationship, I get met with, "Well. you aren't ready for one yet until you are happiest by yourself" or "That isn't good, you'll always be dependent on someone for happiness then" or even, "Well, if you can't make yourself happy, then you can't make anyone else happy either."

Allow me to clarify a few things here.

First of all, just because I am happiest when I am in a relationship does not mean that I am not happy when I am not in one. I am still capable of being happy outside of a relationship, and I am capable of making myself happy. Generally, on a day to day basis, I'm pretty happy.

The thing is, I'm just in love with love. Even just knowing that there is someone out there that cares so deeply about you that they want to spend a part of their life with you is incredible. To me, there's just no better feeling in the world than having someone that you can share your life with. Sure, coming home from work, making myself my favorite meal and watching some Netflix in bed by myself afterward would be a great way to end a day and would make me happy.

It would make me immeasurably happier, however, to come home from work around the same time as the girl I'm dating does, share stories of how our respective days went while cooking a meal together, and ending the night cuddling in bed watching Netflix together until we fall asleep. Nearly anything I can do by myself that will make me happy can be enhanced by having someone I love with me to share it with.

To counter another point, I am not, nor will I ever be, dependent on someone else to be happy.

As I've mentioned, I'm completely capable of being happy by myself; I'm simply happier when I'm in a relationship. I also tend to be happier than I am normally when I am listening to music and writing. Nobody would ever say that I'm dependent on listening to music and writing or that I shouldn't write a single letter or listen to a single note again until I learn to be even happier without them than I am with them.

I get that some people just like being single and think it's enjoyable. They don't like being tied down or committed to any one person. They like being able to go out and do whatever they want without having to think about anyone at home worrying about them. They don't want to put in the work of having to worry about someone else. I'm not that kind of person. I'll never be that kind of person.

I love being tied down and fully committed to one person, knowing that they are committed to me, as well.

I love having someone that I know cares and worries about me, and that knows I care and worry about them, too. I simply adore being in a relationship, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
