Dates to have before valentines day

Being Stuck In The Holiday Blues Sucks, Here Are 5 Things You And Your S.O. Can Do Till Valentine's Day

Stupid cupid hurry up already.


Once the magic of the holidays starts to fade away it gets hard to figure out what you and bae can do to keep the spark up until the next holiday. So how can you make sure that this weird time between now and Valentine's day is covered? I mean you don't have the crutches of Xmas themed dates to keep you moving, and you really don't want to make any of your new year resolutions into a bad date idea.

1.Host cook nights.


Food is probably the easiest thing in the dating book. I mean, you need to eat and almost everyone loves to be cooked for, so grab the apron and start cooking! If you're struggling to think of a good meal idea for you and your s/o, try ordering a meal package from places like Blue Apron. Saves you from having to buy foods you can't pronounce and from accidentally poisoning yourselves! BC nothing is hotter than spending the night on the toilet with bae. 💩

2. Dancing lessons.


How romantic would it be for you and both to learn how to dance together? I mean, yeah bumping and grinding in the club does technically count as dancing but what about the tango? Learning this classic sexy dance is something that is bound to keep you both thoroughly entertained and prepared for actual Valentine's day if you actually decide to go out dancing. Plus, after a long night of learning the tango, you both might find yourselves doing the horizontal mambo.

3. Cozy, chilly dates!


Just because the holidays are over, depending on where you are, doesn't mean the cold has actually left. this means getting snugly under the blankets is still very much an option for you both. So, if I were you I'd grab all of the fuzzy chunky blankets, hot cocoa (or tea), twinkle lights and any movie of choice and cuddle the night away. Ordering pizza helps too.

4. Plan out your goals.


I know that one sounds a bit weird, but it's actually a great way to get to know each other better. Grabbing a coffee or lunch and sitting down with your s/o can get you both talking about what you both want to accomplish not only for yourselves but maybe each other. If life plans are too boring then switch it up to what you both want to try in bed, its a more intimate dive into your minds or pants.

5. Drink night.


OK, so basically it's like cook night, but minus the food and just the alcohol! I mean, sure you can have food there to snack on but the main event is the drinking. The both of you can figure out what combinations of different spirits make the perfect drink or quite possibly the worst drink. You can take turns surprising each other with your concoctions and see what other surprises pop up at the end of the night (pun intended).

I'm hoping your holiday blues go away soon because we've still got 5 weeks till Cupid makes his rounds.

6 Important Must Knows For Dating Sassy And Sarcastic Girls

Brace yourselves boys, she's a tough one.

Dating a girl with a big personality can be tricky. They are some of the most amazing girls but to keep them, one needs to understand them. Here are six important things you must be aware of before you give your heart to a sassy and sarcastic girl.

1. Stubborn

She is going to be the most stubborn creature you will ever meet. I say "creature" because she might actually scare you with how much she refuses to back down until you have full proof she is wrong. And if you can’t prove her wrong, just suck up your pride and let her be right or she’ll never quit. But just remember that she’s simply passionate about whatever it is and you should be proud of her for that.

2. Bluntness

She is going to be blunt. So be prepared to hear the truth. She isn’t going to care how mad you get, if you’re being rude, she won’t be afraid to put you in your place. If your choice of clothing isn’t matching, she’ll tell you. Whatever it is, she isn’t going to keep the truth from you. Sometimes it’s subtle, sometimes she’s just a little too straightforward.

3. Sensitivity

Be careful sometimes with your choice of words. Though she is blunt, she is also sensitive. Her sarcastic personality is sometimes just a defense mechanism because she fears opening up. She worries a lot and continues to ponder the things you say. Remind her she is loved.

4. Friends

She is going to have a lot more guy friends than she will have girl friends. Why? Because guys tend to find more humor in her sarcasm and don’t take it so personal, whereas other girls take it as she’s being serious and just rude. However, don’t be jealous because trust me, you’re 100 percent hers and those guy friends are just that — friends.

5. Insults

She’s not going to flirt with you by giggling and blushing and calling you cute. She’s going to call you an idiot and smack you across the shoulder or back because to her, that’s easier than being all giddy and speechless over how much she likes you. And even when she’s calling you names, which really is in all fun and games, she doesn’t mean it seriously, she’s actually just saying “I love you” in her own special language.

6. Shorty

If she’s short in addition to being sassy and sarcastic, you’re in for a big treat with her. She is not only going to be full of fast wit, but she is going to have so much spunk in her you won’t know what to do. She will be so feisty that she won’t be afraid of anything or anyone and you yourself won’t even know how to handle her. That’s what makes her special.

It takes a certain type of person to be able to give their heart to someone who can so easily break it with their strong headed personality. But a sarcastic and sassy girl is going to be the one girl who is going to love you with all that she has. Treat her right, and she’ll treat you right.

To My Dog In Her Old Age, Your Day Is Soon Approaching–Until Then, Let's Spend All The Time We Can Together

I will never take our time for granted


14 years have come and gone with my best friend by my side. I couldn't have asked for a better companion to grow up with. There's nothing in this world that beats the feeling of coming home to a wagging tail, and it's something that should never be taken for granted.

You are definitely not the same dog you used to be now that you're getting older. You used to love going for walks, but now you pout every time I pull out the leash. You used to run around and bark whenever someone came home, but now we're lucky if you can even hear the door open.

You wobble when you walk and sometimes you slip and fall, but you get right back up again and brush it off. You sleep for most of the day and the most exciting part of your day is eating. You are officially a senior dog, which means your time to go will be here before you know it.

But I don't pay attention to how much you've changed. I only focus on the puppy that you still are. You still play and chase your tail. You still get super excited to see me after being home alone all day. You still love long car rides with the windows down so you can try to bite the other cars as they drive by.

You may be 14 years old, but you've never outgrown your puppy personality. At least now you don't chew holes in the couch.

You are a dog, and dogs are here to make us happy. They are here to make us feel less alone. And you have done just that. You have spent your whole life making me and my family as happy as we could be. You have gone everywhere with us to make sure that we are happy no matter what. By simply existing, you have made me happier than I've ever been. You did your job, and you did it well.

Every day brings us closer to the day you'll say goodbye forever. And when that day comes, it will be devastating for everyone who loved you. But that day isn't here yet, so until then, let's spend all the time we can together.
