Stop Worrying About The Boys Who Leave You Because They Always Come Back

Stop Worrying About The Boys Who Leave You Because They Always Come Back

Put your energy into the person who matters most: you.

Someone once told me that boys always come back.

Ask me three years ago whether or not I believed her. How dumb, I thought. Why would they come back if they’re the ones that chose to leave?

Ask me now whether or not she was right.

I’d tell you she was omniscient.

In those three short years, I learned that heartache will eventually be greeted with return, and to be quite honest, that’s the most disheartening part. Because then why did they leave in the first place? Or, better yet, why did it take a new girl for them to realize how good they had it?

Days filled with tears and weeks clouded with frustration all boil down to their infamous returns. So why worry about it? Why spend so much time thinking about what could have been or how it played out? Stop questioning why they left because sooner or later, you’ll hear from them again.

You’ll run into them on campus or see them at local restaurants. They won’t say anything at first, but you’ll be on their minds.

In some instances, you’ll hear from them a couple hours later. Other times, it’ll take a few months. Either way, don’t say I didn’t warn you. Ideally, they’ll contact you when they're single; but it doesn’t always work out that way, does it?

Don’t ask me why they come back. Maybe you’re the rebound. Maybe they finally realized what they lost. Or maybe they’re just bored and horny. Don’t ask me why; just know that they do.

What to do after they come back is your choice. Accept them or reject them. That’s your decision to make. But for the time being, stop wasting your time worrying. Put your energy into the person who matters most: you.

Why Girls Love The Dad Bod

If your man can rock the dad bod, he's a keeper.


In case you haven't noticed lately, girls are all about that dad bod.

Girls have been dealing with body image issues since the beginning of time until recent (for those of you who consider yourselves to be "Thick thin") I hadn't heard about this body type until my roommate mentioned it. She used to be crazy over guys she claimed had the dad bod.

After observing the guys she found attractive, I came to understand this body type well and was able to identify it. The dad bod is a nice balance between a beer gut and working out. The dad bod says, "I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time." It's not an overweight guy, but it isn't one with washboard abs, either.

The dad bod is a new trend and fraternity boys everywhere seem to be rejoicing. Turns out skipping the gym for a few brews last Thursday after class turned out to be in their favor. While we all love a sculpted guy, there is just something about the dad bod that makes boys seem more human, natural, and attractive. Here are a few reasons that girls are crazy about the dad bod.

It doesn't intimidate us.
Few things are worse than taking a picture in a bathing suit, one being taking a picture in a bathing suit with a guy who is crazy fit. We don't want a guy that makes us feel insecure about our body. We are insecure enough as it is. We don't need a perfectly sculpted guy standing next to us to make us feel worse.

We like being the pretty one.
We love people saying "they look cute together." But we still like being the center of attention. We want to look skinny and the bigger the guy, the smaller we feel and the better we look next to you in a picture.

Better cuddling.
No one wants to cuddle with a rock. Or Edward Cullen. The end.

Good eats.
The dad bod says he doesn't meal prep every Sunday night so if you want to go to Taco Tuesday or $4 pitcher Wednesday, he'd be totally down. He's not scared of a cheat meal because he eats just about anything and everything.

You know what you're getting.
Girls tend to picture their future together with their guys early on. Therefore, if he already has the dad bod going on, we can get used to it before we date him, marry him, have three kids. We know what we are getting into when he's got the same exact body type at the age of 22 that he's going to have at 45.

So there you go. A simple break down of why girls everywhere are going nuts over this body type on males. We like it. We love it. We want some more of it. So here's to you dad bods, keep it up. Men, confidently strut that gut on the beach because while you stare at us in our bikinis we will be staring just as hard.

Ladies, Your Ex Isn't The Only One At Fault When The Relationship Ends

You're at fault too. Let's just get that out there.


"Oh, girl, it's not your fault that he's cheating on you."

"Oh, babe, he's the one who did all this crap, so you should not blame yourself for it."

"You're never once at fault."

Do all of these sound familiar? Every woman has surely had a friend tell her these words of comfort and support, all in an attempt to ease the feelings of a broken heart.

And after time, you'll be reflecting about the break-up and random questions will just pop up: Are you completely guilt-free? Is he the one who should be taking all the blame? If I do this, will he come back to me?

All of these intense emotions just continue to mess with your senses and send you into all kinds of madness. You're trying your hardest to come to terms with what exactly went wrong with the entire relationship. With all these things going on in your head, you may feel shaken and unprepared for any potential partner.

You know that you are more than ready to give love and be loved again.

However, the very thought of your previous relationship destroys you internally. What if you're unable to love someone again? What if you may not find someone like him again?

My dear, hold your horses. Because you need a reality check.

Trying to avoid past events doesn't erase those landmarks. They will still live inside of you. So instead, you must learn to overcome your inner demons before jumping into a new relationship.

Also, be fair to your next partner. He has no obligations to mend your broken self, even if he has feelings for you. Never push all that responsibility onto him because you'll be putting him through emotional torture.

Don't scar him the same way your ex scarred you.

The same person can never be replicated, and there is no such thing as a carbon copy of this person. When you are expecting your potential partner to have the same mannerisms as your ex, just forget it and set him free.

You need to acknowledge that all is lost in regards to that past relationship.

Instead of living in the delusion that the blame is completely on your ex, start reflecting on yourself as well.

You're at fault too. Let's just get that out there. You screwed up badly and destroyed yourself in the process. This is the harshest of truths, but acceptance is key in order for you to move on fully.

Life doesn't pause and wait for you to rectify all of your mistakes. Whether you like it or not, it just goes on.

Before you start your sob stories about the whole relationship, and how he was the cheating asshole, let me just make this clear: Cheating should never be tolerated in a relationship, as that is utter disrespect to your partner and the ultimate betrayal.

Trust is the most precarious thing in the world. When it's broken, it will be an uphill battle trying to rebuild it again with the same person who ruined everything. Trying is usually just a waste of time because if he is truly committed, he would never stray and succumb to temptations.

What people need to be accountable for is not walking away earlier when there are obvious red flags.

Don't tell me stuff like, "How would I know?" because that is just so fake. You knew all along, but you chose to ignore everything and live happily in your own delusion.

So, don't blame him for screwing you up. You brought it upon yourself.

If he doesn't prioritize your relationship, or if he is rude to you in the most unjustifiable way, don't blame him. Why are you blaming him? You decided to take him back in a heartbeat.

You decided to be nice and understanding toward him, despite his shitty attitude. You only have yourself to blame for giving him the time of day.

I don't understand why women would just put the blame on their partners when they are the culprits of their own miseries. Before deciding to be forgiving the next time around, remember that you are not obliged to do so. Go ahead to tell him to get lost.

Women don't have to behave nicely or put themselves in a lowly position when they are subjected to mistreatment in a relationship. This is, after all, the 21st century. Women should learn to cherish themselves more.
