So, you're interested in this girl and you just found out she loves music more than the average person. She posts about the concerts she attends on social media and has a few favorite band guys that she talks about way too much, though that's nothing to worry about because the chances of them stealing her from you are slim to none. Before you really start getting to know her and consider dating her, here are 13 things you should know about the girl who loves her music.

1. She'll have so many Spotify playlists.

There'll be one for the car, one for studying, one full of JUST Fall Out Boy...one for every occasion and mood is a must.

2. She'll constantly be buying concert tickets.

Anytime a band announces a tour and they're coming relatively close to your city, you can bet she's already bought tickets.

3. Her wallet will be full of ticket stubs.

If you ever need her to hold your keys, credit card or cash, she may be limited on space because of all the stubs she has in her wallet. Trust me, I have stubs all the way from last summer. We just forget to take them out and we end up having a collection that goes with us wherever we go.

4. If she finds a new band, they'll be all she talks about.

And she'll just HAVE to see them live and won't shut up about it until she does.

5. Her profile photos will be of her and artists she's met.

If she's just recently met an artist, you can guarantee it'll be her profile picture for at least the next few months or so.

6. When she finally meets her FAVORITE, artist, she'll never stop talking about it.

I can guarantee you she's at her happiest when she's surrounded by her favorite artists. She'll smile like she's never smiled before.

7. Her friends will be just as bad as she is.

If you thought she was bad about posting about bands, her friends are just as bad, if not worse.

8. Her camera roll will be filled with pictures of her favorite band members.

She may talk about them all the time in front of you, but you shouldn't worry because they're likely married or in relationships of their own, and the chances of her actually dating them are slim to none. It's just a mere...extreme fascination, if you will.

9. She'll be more sympathetic and understanding.

Chances are she's met other people because of these bands who have gone through some pretty tough stuff. If you vent to her about personal things or open up about your past, she'll understand and won't judge you, because she's either known other people who've gone through it or she's gone through it herself.

10. She'll love you with everything she's got.

These bands have taught her how to love something with her whole heart. If you happen to date a girl who loves a band, you're in luck. You'll never have to questioned if you're loved and how much she loves you.

11. You'll never run out of things to listen to.

With all those Spotify playlists she's got, your music library just got an upgrade. If you're tired of listening to the same 12 songs, try listening to some of her music. You may find a new favorite.

12. You'll be introduced to a whole new concert experience.

Never been on the barricade at a concert? Never met an artist? When you're dating someone like her, you'll do so many new things when it comes to concerts, you'll wonder why you went so long without doing it.

13. You'll never run out of things to talk about.

Whether that be planning a concert, talking about a band or voicing your opinion about a new album, when it comes to music, you'll never be bored or run out of things to talk about. Maybe dating that girl won't be so bad after all.

Why You Should Stop Chasing Him

You deserve better.

They say “the thrill of the chase" makes someone more enticing. There's just something about wanting something you can't have that drives you crazy (in a good way). There is never a dull moment. Pursuing him is a challenge. Nothing comes easily. What's the fun in that anyway?

I'm going to tell you this: stop chasing him. Stop forgiving him when he forgets to answer your text messages and phone calls. Stop being the one to always make plans. Stop letting him bail on you. Stop waiting around for him. Stop being lied to. Stop making excuses when he doesn't make time for you. There is a difference between someone who is “hard to get" and a flat out jerk who doesn't give you the time of day. Stop letting him use you.

You deserve to be with someone who makes you fall asleep every night in the middle of texting him because neither of you want the conversation to end. You deserve someone who plans dates for the two of you. You deserve someone who asks you to hang out before midnight. You deserve someone who wants to spend time with you just as much as you do with them. You deserve someone who insists on paying for your ice cream. You deserve someone who won't deceive you. You deserve someone who is straightforward. You deserve attention. You deserve affection. You deserve a partnership that is mutual, not one-sided. You deserve to be chased.

You are better than 3 a.m. “Hey" texts. You are better than a night spent watching a movie just to fool around. You are better than trying to decode his vague messages. You are better than his shadiness. You are better than mind games. You are better than being ignored.

If you have to chase him, he's not worth it. Don't settle for someone who makes you beg for his attention. If he is genuinely interested in getting to know you, he will put in the effort. A relationship where your feelings are reciprocated is far more rewarding than one where you constantly feel like you have to drag him along.

Change your mentality. Become more independent. Be confident, be bold. Find happiness in being alone. Don't waste your time pathetically chasing after someone who doesn't feel the same, but doesn't have the heart or the courage to tell you so. Your self-confidence and positivity will make you radiant, and eventually, you will attract the kind of guy who is mature enough to not mess with your head.

Ladies, Stop Trying To Teach Boys How To Be Your Man If They're Not Even Men In The First Place

It is your job to love him. But it is not your job to teach him how to love you back.

I see. this way too often, honestly it upsets me and breaks my heart. It breaks my heart when I see a girl begging her boyfriend to put her on her Snapchat story. It breaks my heart when I see a girl begging her boyfriend to get off a video game and spend time with her. It breaks my heart when I see a girl doodling on a napkin at the dinner table and her boyfriend is on his phone and hasn't even looked up at her once. These things break my heart because this girl, whoever she may be, maybe it is you? She deserves a man. What she has though, is a boy. And before you say anything, yes, there is a huge difference.

I was that girl once. I begged and begged my ex-boyfriend all the time to put me on his Snapchat story. You may be reading this and be thinking "Wow she's a little attention seeking." No, that is not it at all. A simple act of being posted about made me feel special, loved, missed at times, and served as reassurance and a word of affirmation for me. Do you want to know something silly? Maybe you've done it too. Sometimes I would do something crazy to get his attention. Something funny, and silly and random just so he would post me on his story and I wouldn't have to ask.

At the dinner table, I was that girl that while he was on his phone I was sliding him notes on a napkin saying "I love you" or "Hi" or funny jokes to get his full and undivided attention.

At home, I was the girl that used to literally throw myself at him while he was playing video games to try and get him to press pause for two minutes and pay attention to me and have a conversation with me.

You see, I was that girl. But I refuse to ever be that girl again. If you are that girl, stop what you're doing.

It is your job to love him. But it is not your job to teach him how to love you back.

There is a big difference between a boy and a man. Contrary to what society may believe most boys don't actually turn into men until they are almost 40. Scary for us girls right? But here's the kicker and to be honest it has nothing to do with age.

Any boy that is in the process of becoming a man and maturing is going to know how to treat a woman. He is not going to choose video games or his phone over you. He is going to post you everywhere all the time because he wants to show you off to the world and make you feel special. He isn't going to ever leave you wondering.

The list could really go on comparing and contrasting the differences between a boy and a man but the important ones to remember when you are in a relationship are:

1. A boy thinks "me." A man thinks "us"

2. A boy gives false promises. A man honors his commitments (one being you.)

3. A boy cares about how you look in jeans. A man cares about how you look in his future.

4. You will always wonder how a boy feels about you. You will always know how a man feels about you.

All too often I see girls in the act of this. It is almost like they are training a dog or raising a child. They order them around and become demanding when it comes to doing things that make them feel special, validated and reassured. Granted, they are doing this because their relationship is lacking something but the truth is, it shouldn't be lacking something in the first place.

You are dating a boy not a man. I hate to break that to you. I really do. It's the hardest news you'll ever receive. Why? Well because

You can't fix him, you can't teach him, and you can't change a boy into a man. They have to do it on their own
