11 Things To Do When You're The Khloe Kardashian Of Your Relationships

Perhaps your baby daddy cheated on you with your sister's best friend. Or your NBA ex-boyfriend claimed you ruined his basketball career. Whether your relationship history is anywhere near as dramatic as Khloe Kardashian's, sometimes It sure feels like it. So how do you break free from bad, T.V. show worthy relationships and finally find someone to love? Here's what to do when you're the Khloe Kardashian of your relationships.

1. Listen to your friends

Sometimes your best friends can spot a potential bad partner faster than Kim Kardashian's divorce with Kris Humphries. If your friends don't like your beau, it could be in your best interest to take a second look at the person you are with.

2. Look out for red flags

Previous cheater? Flaming narcissist? Be weary of negative qualities rather than overlooking them. Don't settle for somebody who is pretty good most of the time. They aren't going to satisfy you in the long run.

3. Be your own support system

Don't look towards others to be your emotional support. Rely on yourself and figure out what you can do to keep yourself happy. Find hobbies that you love and spend time with people who encourage positivity.

4. An instant connection doesn't mean you're meant to last

If your feelings fade after the so-called "Honeymoon phase" of a relationship, it might be time to end it. Sometimes the expiration date of a relationship is sooner than presumed and things just aren't working out anymore. Don't be afraid to move on when you no longer think that person is right for you.

5. Let each other breathe

Hanging out too much could extinguish the flame of a new romance before it's even really begun. If you're constantly together 24/7 and leave zero room for friends/family, you're suffocating each other. It is important to have a life outside of your relationship and personal goals you're working towards. Quality of time spent together is better than the quantity.

6. Date when you're ready, not when you feel like you should

There's no reason to jump into things when you don't have the time and aren't emotionally ready to be with someone. Relationships do take effort, so if that's not something you're willing to put forth then it's probably best to stay single (which isn't a bad thing)!

7. Communication

It seems like people these days are afraid to ask for what they want. If you need something from your partner, don't be afraid to ask. You can't be upset if they don't live up to expectations they never knew existed.

8. Honesty and trust

Being honest is important, and hopefully, if you're with somebody who truly cares about you then they will be honest too. Trust what they say and don't feed them false information. If you have no trust in your relationship, you're bound to feel unhappy in it.

9. Keep things mostly private

Unlike Khloe's love life, your romance should stay between you two for the most part. Your friends aren't your personal diary and sharing every detail can cause them to give you biased advice which can lead to your relationship's demise. It's perfectly fine to share things and get input, but there's such a thing as oversharing.

10. Ditch your "type"

If you keep dating similar kinds of people and it ends up in disaster, it's time to break out of your comfort zone. Branch out from the people you generally go for and try to see if someone with a different personality type could suit you better.

11. Love yourself!!

I cannot stress enough how important self-love is not just for relationships, but for your own sake. Take care of your mental health and listen to your body. When you're tired, sleep. When you're stressed, take steps like a hot bath to aid your mind in relaxing. People often forget to put themselves first so it's important to keep reminding that you deserve it.

Hopefully, these tips can help you find love or better a current relationship you may have! Wishing you the very best in your future romantic endeavors.

Without you, there would not be a him, so first things first, thank you.

1. Thank you for teaching him to love a woman the right way, to put God first, and YOU before me always, the respect he shows you is so attractive, and you deserve it.

He talks about you like you hung the moon, I don't doubt for a second that he will be an amazing father one day, I owe all of that to you.

2. Thank you for giving me a chance, learning to love me when you knew your son was doing the same.

I can't speak for my own first impressions, but hopefully mine was not THAT bad...when we both slapped him on the arms for his rude remark at the same time, I knew our relationship was already blossoming.

3. Thank you for every meal you have ever purchased me.

And chocolate, and candy...you know just as well as your son does that food is the way to my heart. Especially Taco Bell and cheesecake ;)

4. Thank you for your advice, suggestions, and opinions...and asking for mine

Whether it's telling me to slap him for being a smart a$$, or you're asking me about color swabs for your kitchen makeover, you come to me as if I am your own, and I am so honored to give you my own input.

5. Thank you for including me

You never fail to leave a spot for me, and I love family dinners/outings with you guys just as much as I love my own!

6. Thank you for teaching your son to never give up, and that if he does it is only to better himself, or it's the only choice he has left.

He is so focused on his future, he wants the best for himself, and he is constantly reminding me that these are things that YOU taught him, you deserve to be so proud.

7. Thank you for letting him love my family, and allowing me to love yours.

He is so loyal and loving to my family, and I don't even have to ask myself why because I see him with you and yours. Thank you for letting us double up on holidays when we can, and making sure we get the most out of our time with you!

8. Thank you for being his best friend.

I think of him as mine too, but I couldn't think of a better person to also hold that title, you know him better than anyone else and you always will.

9. Thank you for teaching him how to treat a woman

He is constantly telling me "You sound like my mother." Thankfully earlier in our relationship, he told me that the woman he wants to be with, should do just that. He always tells people who try, "No, no one calls me by my full name except my mom and my girlfriend."

10. Thank you for your honesty

We all know that he and I can drive you crazy sometimes, thank you for telling us like it is, and making sure we know you still love us anyways.

11. Thank you for teaching him to work as hard as possible in anything and everything he does.

I have never met anyone with such a desire for success, he and I are constantly discussing how we can better our futures, and I know exactly where his drive comes from.

12. Thank you for teaching him to clean up after himself

Even though sometimes, it takes him a minute to do so.

13. Thank you for teaching him how to love, and letting him love me.

I have never felt so loved by a man, probably because anyone else who came into my life was just a boy. Thank you for your unconditional love for him, he is your entire heart and that is so easy to see, I am happy to share his with you.

You and I both know that even years from now we will both occasionally probably be closing the fridge that he left open, cleaning the crumbs he dropped, demanding he take a shower after playing soccer, or reminding him 20 times about plans we made weeks ago, we both share such a great love for such an amazing man. I could never be more thankful that you brought forth into this world such a comforting, supportive, protective, steadfast, driven, handsome, and hilarious guy. Thank you for everything you do for him, for me, and for us, I love you a lot!

He told me to never cut my hair short because it would make me look too masculine.

So, I sent him pictures of three different pixie cuts and asked him which one I should get.


He told me not to wear red lipstick because it made me look like a slut.

So, I bought every shade from blush rose to maroon.


He told me not to buy heels taller than one and a half inches tall because it's unattractive for a girl to be taller then the guy she is with.

My favorite shop was having a sell on a beautiful pair of three-inch stilettos. I bought them.


He told me that I was putting on a few extra pounds and that I shouldn't order dessert on our next dinner date.

Did he honestly think I would say no to the red velvet cake that our waitress offered?


He flirted with the waitress, saying that I should "look more like her."

I wrote down his number on our receipt before we left the restaurant.


He told me not to leave my "feminine products" on the counter because it's embarrassing.

When his friends came over for guys night, I organized my tampons and pads nicely on the bathroom shelf.


He told me that I couldn't talk to my best friend of 12 years because he was a guy.

I invited him to watch a movie with us at the local cinema the following week.


He told me not to order wine at the bar with him and his work friends because he didn't want me to seem "trashy."

I ordered jack and coke instead.


He told me not to be a feminist because it meant that I thought I was better than him.

My new "GIRL PWR" shirt is my favorite.


He told me to be silent.

He told me that I think too much and that I speak what I think too often.

He told me nobody cares about what I have to say.

He told me that the things I say don't matter.


So, I wrote a poem about him.
