5 Signs You're Dating Your Very Own 'Luke P.' And Need To Break Up With Him, Like, Yesterday

This season on "The Bachelorette," the drama has been high, to say the least. From Tyler C. to Luke P., there are all kinds of personalities this season, and I am here for it! While we all watch for Tyler C., the drama of Luke P. has us all coming back for more. Hannah B. finally realized that Luke P. just isn't it, and I know that we all are excited enough to jump over a fence. Unfortunately, Luke P. isn't the only 'Luke P.' out there. The constant manipulation and lying and sleaziness comes around without us girls even realizing it because the bad guys aren't always dressed in black. Sometimes, the worst ones are tall and handsome ones.

He makes the issue bigger

We all remember the rugby game, right? This is a great example of a RED FLAG. A simple bro talk and an apology could have resolved the frustrating issue. This didn't have to do with Hannah, but in true Luke P. fashion, he managed to blow it out of proportion and ruin Hannah B.'s night by making this minor problem that he caused into a massive issue that resulted in many tears. If your significant other is always putting his problems on you and trying to get you to fix all his problems, explore that feeling and listen to your gut because he may not be the one.

He belittles you to make himself feel powerful

The differences between Tyler C. and Luke P. are never-ending. One difference that has really stuck out to me is the way they each acknowledge Hannah's confidence. The Tyler C.'s are always going to lift you up and encourage you to be the bad ass woman you are, but the Luke P.'s are going to want to make you feel as if you could never live up to your potential. Is that what you want? These silly boys only do that because they are the weak ones, not you. Girl, you rock, and like Tyler said, "You have the ability to move mountains." Find your Tyler C.

He loves only talking about himself

the bachelorette Giphy

Is all you hear from your significant other "me, myself and I?" This is a red flag, I repeat, this is a red flag. In a relationship, you should want to hear about someone else's interests and ideas, not just talk about your own. Luke P. shows his narcissism in almost every single episode of this season. He can't seem to ever just sit and listen to Hannah because it's always only about him. It can be exhausting only listening to the same things over and over again. Don't ever let some boy steal your thunder, ladies.

He's willing to make you cry all your tears for him

the bachelorette Giphy

Ain't nobody got time for that. Nothing is more exhausting than crying, personally. So, why would you let someone who makes you frown more than smile into your life? I think we have seen Hannah B. cry because of Luke P. more than we have seen any other bachelorette cry. This is not okay! If you feel emotionally drained and cry more than you eat, it isn't worth it. You should never have to sacrifice your happiness for anything because you are worthy of being happy and living your life fully.

He tells you he loves you on the second date

the bachelorette Giphy

No, just no. There are so many issues with using the "L" word too soon. One of them being that it isn't true. I'm sorry, but falling in love with someone the second time you meet is crazy. Luke P. stole Hannah's heart when he said that he developed feelings for her before even meeting her. When I say stole, I mean robbed Hannah's heart from being full. He tries to use his "loving" feelings to cover up all the damage he's done, and that just isn't cool. Don't let someone like Luke P. manipulate you into staying with him despite all the damage he's done by telling you he loves you. Love is so special and protect your heart for someone special (like Tyler C.).

There are many Luke's out there, but there are also a lot of Tyler's. Watch out for those red flags so you don't have to feel the way Hannah feels with Luke. Surround yourself with people who lift you up and who are proud of you, not the opposite.

I'm so proud of Demi Lovato's new, powerful breakup ballad, "Still Have Me." After her split from fiancé Max Ehrich, she is pulling herself out from the darkness, picking up the shattered pieces, and realizing that she's got this. If that's not inspirational, I don't know what is.

Trader Joe's has been my favorite grocery store since I knew it existed — from the small, community-like feel to the prepped frozen snacks I throw in the oven 10 minutes before having guests over, it's been a go-to for me for over a decade.

During the four years in college I didn't live near one, friends and I would make a semi-annual pilgrimage to the one nearest us hours away to pick up our favorite essentials, all on a college budget.

It's important to recognize that we all go through different experiences based on the reproductive systems we're born with. Yes, the penis and vagina do different things. I want to understand what it's like to walk around with a pair of balls and I'd hope others are curious about what it's like to bleed once a month, endure infertility issues, and just have a uterus and identify as a woman.

I'm not going to lie — I was pleasantly surprised by the answers I received when I asked 12 men about some basic reproductive health. Here's what they had to say.

Many people want to help when they learn someone they know is going through or has been through, a rough period in life. The issue lies in the right way to approach the situation without making it worse. These encounters, whether they be continuous or a single conversation, are never easy. It's okay to feel discomfort and to question whether or not you're handling it properly.

There are a few things I've found to be mostly universal in theory (if not in full thought) from the person going through a tough time. I hope this brings some understanding and perspective for the next time you have a sit down with someone you care for.

PCOS Is The Worst, But The Women Battling It Every Day Are Extraordinary

Women are learning new ways to assist hormonal health every single day.

Everyone knows someone who has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Maybe you don't know that you know, but with 10% of women in the United States having the autoimmune disease, it's more common than you'd think. The hormonal hell that many of these women go through is not only painful, but it's exhausting, with too few answers thanks to a lack of research and consistency.

This lack of research makes the disease rather "trial and error" for many women, as everyone's case is different and requires them to figure things out based on experimentation. Thankfully, the women of the world are good at fixing problems. While PCOS has caused me a lot of hurt, I've been blown away by the women I've met who continue to tackle this battle head-on, one day at a time.

OK, listen, I also think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is cool. I had an Elizabeth Warren sign in my dorm room for a while. I'm currently interning for a congressional candidate. I'm very invested in politics. And supporting and liking certain politicians over others is a part of being invested in politics.
