Girl, it's OK to admit that you have wasted your time on a boy or two.

We've all been there.

But, you don't have to regret the memories you have made with them. Most times, it happens when you're young in high school and college.

For me, it took up most of my time during high school. It was the type of relationship that was on again-off again. Looking back at it, I regret giving him so much of my time. I ruined a potential relationship that could've been something, but as soon as he shot me a text or snapped me, I was right there with him again. Now, thinking back about it all I ask myself, 'what if?'

I can't explain why there was a pull to always go back to him. I could never put my finger on it. I don't know if it was the fact that he was an older guy. Or he was cute. I had a good time with him.

It was the simple things of driving around the small town we lived while listening to music, hanging out at the park, talking and watching movies.

We never had a label, maybe that was the problem. I had mixed emotions throughout the whole time of being with him.

Looking back at the time spent with him, I realize I never saw a future with him. I wish I saw this when I was with him because maybe the time with him wouldn't have been so long and drawn out.

I'm at the point in my life that when I find myself in a new relationship, it will be the end game. The person that I will grow old with. I don't want to be with someone if I can't see myself with them in the long run or I don't want them to meet my family and friends.

Look at your current relationship or think about your future relationship. Do you see yourself with them? Want to live the rest of your life with them? Introduce them to your family?

If the answer is no, then why bother?

You may be in a place where you want to have fun and live a little without being committed to someone, then I say go for it, but that is not for me.

Just please don't waste too much on a guy if he is not the one for you.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
