A Letter to the Girl Who Has No Luck in Love

It's time to be honest here, girl.

A Letter to the Girl Who Has No Luck in Love

Hi, I'm you.

I am probably one of the most unlucky people in the world when it comes to love (besides Nick Vaill, our current bachelor who got turned down numerous times on TV). Of course, I also don't have 30 super hot single people chasing after me (and if I do, please make your presence known. Like actually). But that's beside the point. Literally, my parents and friends have all said how unlucky I am.

If you're anything like me, you've met this guy (or girl) who you thought was AMAZING. Totally perfect, he treated you well, wanted to spend time with you... but then after awhile that slowly started to fade, and he never really wanted to commit to a relationship.

He probably stopped texting you everyday. Or he takes what feel like 10 years to reply and it's usually a short reply. He stops asking you how your day was. He "can't" hang out as much, and has a lot of excuses when you ask him to hang out. It eventually seems like you're putting in all this effort and he's not returning any of it. "Maybe he'll change" you think to yourself, but he never does. Then the dreaded day comes when he says that he "just can't do this right now" or "it's not you, it's me".

I've had this happen to me three times. Yes, three. All in the past year and half too. Kind of begins to make you wonder... am I doing something wrong? Then I remember, no of course I'm not because I'm fabulous. It's usually not something YOU'RE doing wrong... It's probably just the timing, or maybe it is something going on in his life. My point is, do not take it personally. Do not beat yourself up over this failed relationship.

Because let's be real here, girl... It's their loss. Seriously.

You might be "unlucky" now, but that doesn't mean you'll be alone forever. I am a firm believer in fate, and I strongly believe that the person you're meant to be with will come around eventually. It might take awhile, but as my wonderful mom always tells me, "you have to kiss a lot of frogs until you find your prince."

There is no point trying to force something that isn't there. Someone is always bound to get even more hurt. So if they give you up then they're stupid it's their loss. Because you are wonderful, unique, and beautiful... and you deserve all the happiness in the world.

In the mean time, don't go desperately looking for love. To be honest, you won't find it that way. Instead, work on YOU. Work out, learn to cook, discover a new hobby, take a new class, work towards that promotion. Become the best version of yourself. Then, you will be irresistible.

I have days where I feel like crap and that is what I tell myself. I try to always remind myself of my worth, and how one day, some guy will be telling everyone how lucky he is to have me.

So, remember... You're worth it.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
