It may be 2018, but let's face it, us girls are still embarrassing ourselves to get boys every now and then. It's alright because we've all had our moments. I asked 14 girls what the worst thing they've done to get a guy's attention is and here are some of the cringe-worthy responses. But honestly, we've all been there, so no judgment.

1. The Makeup Guru

"I started wearing heavy black eyeliner with like no other makeup."

2. The Bad Sandy

"I started wearing provocative clothing."

3. The Damsel In Distress

"My car ironically “broke down” literally right in front of his house. Weird."

4. The Reason Guys Don't Understand Girls

"I hung all over his best friend while we were out so he would notice me. Let me know why I thought that would work."

5. The Queen Of Mixed Signals

"I made out with my best guy friend in front of him."

6. The Poet

"I whispered in his ear: hey, let’s go have sex."

7. The Innocent White Lie

"I told him my parents were getting divorced even though they’ve been divorced since I was three."

8. The Standard Emotional Breakdown

"I parked next to his car at work and then after my shift, I was in a really bad mood so I was just crying in my car..... but then I was hoping he’d come out and see and ask what’s wrong so I kept it going for a while... I waited for like 20 minutes and he finally got to his car and didn’t even notice me hahaha."

9. The One Whose Plan Actually Worked

"This sounds disgusting, but I did two things. I drank a shot of soy sauce when I got my job to get his attention and then I poured soy sauce in his cup (he was drinking Dr. Pepper) and he drank the whole thing before noticing. He and I became friends after that."

10. The Scholar

"Go to a class I would otherwise skip— AND dress somewhat cute for it."

11. The One You Need To Watch Out For

"I slashed his tires."

12. The Classic "Oops, that wasn't meant for you."

"I pretended to text someone else even though I intentionally texted the guy in order to get his attention. I hope that I wasn’t too obvious. Yikes!"

13. The Taylor Swift

"I wrote him a song... but I can't sing."

14. TBH... All Of Us

"My whole existence is something embarrassing that I've done to get a boy's attention."

You're not alone. We all embarrass ourselves to get a boy's attention every so often. Let's just collectively decide to do a little better.

You’re probably thinking, “oh sh*t, my ex is writing a hate letter and a tell-all about our roller coaster tycoon relationship with terrible fallout.” But if you’re thinking that, oh honey you’re wrong. This isn’t some sappy pity party nonsense and it’s not a trash-my-ex tell all; it’s a journey. And it’s my side of our story to tell…

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
