Yes, ladies, we’ve all had to kiss our fair share of frogs. And going through all of those frogs can make you doubt if your prince is really your prince. But I’m here to tell you that it’s okay to let your guard down around the right guy. It’s okay to finally let loose and enjoy yourself.

Going through college and relationships through college can be confusing and of course, complicated. It can discombobulate us to the point that we don’t trust anyone, even ourselves. If you are feeling this way, I understand completely. When I first met my boyfriend, I thought he was too good to be true, but I gave him a chance. Thank goodness I did.

Once you feel that you’ve found your prince, relax. Stop wondering what he’s doing when you’re not around. Chances are he’s sitting in his living room playing 2K18. If his phone buzzes later than you feel is appropriate, ask him.

In my experience, it’s just been his ESPN app giving him updates on the UNC basketball game. Trust me, I doubted him in the beginning because he really did seem too good to be true! But, he was and still is nothing but transparent with me. Odds are if you ask and he cares about you, he’ll answer openly and honestly. And if you’ve been hurt in the past, be open with him about that. Healthy relationships rely on transparency and trust.

If you truly feel that the man you are with is your person, be open with him. Yes, it’s scary to be vulnerable, but it is so liberating. Plus, it’s very reassuring to know that you can tell someone everything about you, the good, bad, and ugly, and they still want to be with you.

And if you’re looking for signs that he’s your person, check out my article here. Seriously, relax, have fun, and fall in love. It’s truly the best feeling in the world.
