From A Hopeless Romantic Millennial...

Longing to be appreciated beyond your iPhone screen? I sympathize.

Being a hopeless romantic in this generation is really a special kind of Hell. Are you a woman that longs for more than a #WCW post in a generation that values likes and shares over everything? (Don't get me wrong, an occasional #WCW post is nice, too)

A woman longing to live in the moment, not a 'my-story'? (Yes, we love to be shown off.. But we love even more so to be appreciated beyond the ever changing world of Social Media..)

A woman longing to be cared for as deeply as she cares for her significant other?



Don't worry, I sympathize.

How do you deal with it when you have so much love to give, but no man seems to appreciate it? You're constantly giving every bit of yourself and then some, all for it to be thrown back in your face?

You have to get to the point where you value yourself. That's how you deal with it. You have to get to the point where you know what you bring to your relationship, and you don't look for someone who loves that about you, you finally love it about yourself.

You love that you care so deeply about your significant other their heartbreak becomes yours. You do your best every single day to protect their heart from being broken, but sometimes no matter how hard you try, it breaks into a million pieces. Yet, no matter how bad you may be at puzzles, you will put those pieces back together time and time again.

You love that you would do anything and everything to make your significant other happy. Their laugh is your favorite song and their smile your favorite movie.

You love that you are so passionate about love and life and all it has to offer; and you long for the day you can share that passion with someone who appreciates it the way you do.

You can't be shy about it anymore.

You can't question if it's something wrong with you. It's nothing wrong with you, if the potential suitors in your life don't appreciate these things about you, they're not the right one. I know thats a cliche we get tired of hearing, but it's true.

There is a man out there with a passion for love and life ready to love you as Jesus loved the church.

There is a man who will see not only all the positives that you bring to a relationship, but qualities you didn't even know you had; because he'll bring out the best in you, not the worst.

He will never leave you questioning his feelings or his intentions. He will never leave you feeling guilty for, well, having feelings. He will never make you compare yourself to another woman. He will build you up, not tear you down.

There is a man out there longing to give himself to a woman who will appreciate him as much as he appreciates her, and God will cross your paths when it's your time.

In the meantime, I know with every heart break it becomes harder to remain positive, but don't lose faith.

And please, don't ever let a man ruin your self image.

You are beautiful and you are worthy of a love so deep the ocean would be jealous.

Until you and your future husband cross paths, remember love doesn't only lie in a significant other, but in different forms all around us.

In our family, our friends, our pets, even polite strangers on the street.

God shows us his love every day.

And more often than not, we lose sight of that love; because we're so focused on what we believe we're missing. When in reality, it's been right in front of us all along.

We are spoiled by God's infinite love, we're just waiting for the right person to share it with.

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.

SEE ALSO: Slim Thick Is The New Thin

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.

12 Things Men Do In 2018 That Exude Little Dick Energy

When it comes to energy, size definitely matters (apparently).

115

Since Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson's whirlwind (aka fast as f*ck) engagement, many people are under the impression that Pete just has to have that big dick energy to get hitched to "the hottest girl ever."

Of course, big dick energy isn't just about one's size, but Ari let it not-so-subtly slip on Twitter that Pete has a 10-inch schlong. So maybe that's part of it, too.

Sadly, most men are not Pete Davidson. They don't have that big dick energy.

Here are 12 things men do on the daily in 2018 that prove they have the opposite of big dick energy—little dick energy:

1. Blame the way you treat girls on being drunk, high, or "with the boys"

Grow up.

2. Always crave attention and never check in on friends

You wanna know why guys like Pete Davidson have big dick energy? It's because they're humble and supportive as f*ck of their friends.

3. Comment on tons of girls' half-naked Instagram posts

Following some models? Not a problem. Liking their posts every once in awhile? OK, you do you! Commenting on their posts with thirsty as f*ck emojis? Bye.

4. Neglect to show your girl you love and appreciate her regularly

If you have commitment issues or have trouble expressing yourself, search inward to find yourself or get professional help. It's 2018. We should be respecting, appreciating, and loving THE F*CK out of anyone who matters to us.

5. Decide you're "too busy" to take care of your health

Health is wealth. Don't be poor.

6. Be financially irresponsible

Pro-tip: If you want big dick energy, think about saving up your money instead of spending it on useless sh*t. And maybe take your girl out from time to time, too.

7. Not want to introduce your girl to your friends

Three words for you: LITTLE. DICK. ENERGY.

8. Or shy away from showing her off

No, you don't have to post on social media about her if you're not down with that, but that doesn't mean you can't show her off in other ways, like around friends and family.

9. Claim all of your Exes are insane

Own up to your mistakes. There's no way every single one of your exes was crazy. Have you ever considered the common denominator?

10. Overcompensate for something by obsessively talking about your muscle car or lifted truck

'Nuff said.

11. Talk about all of your rich or successful friends to try and impress other people

So your acquaintance from high school works for a Fortune 500 and another has a millionaire Daddy. Cool. How does this affect you or me?

12. Or worse, brag about every single one of your own achievements

Giphy

We all deserve to pat ourselves on the back every once in awhile. But if you want big dick energy, let some of your accomplishments speak for themselves. You shouldn't feel the need to always talk yourself up. Honestly, it's not that attractive anyway.
