Modern: How to Lose a Guy In 10 Days

A spin-off list inspired by one of your favorite Rom-Com.

Modern: How to Lose a Guy In 10 Days

One of my all-time favorite movies features a woman purposely trying to lose a guy in 10 days. She completes crazy acts that many modern women fall for without knowing it; things like buying a love fern, ruining ‘guys night out,’ calling his mom and making a scrapbook with pictures of what their future babies would look like (obviously some are more extreme than others). Here is my twist on the modern day version of this amazing Rom-com.

1. Text him repeatedly when he doesn’t respond right away.

If they’re not replying right away, they’re probably doing something and are too busy to respond, or just haven’t seen it. Texting them twenty times not only makes you seem a bit crazy, but its also unnecessary. If they didn’t see the first one, they’re not going to see the fifth. Plus, if they did see it and didn’t respond, that’s probably a clear enough sign already.

2. Tell him about all your stuffed animals.

Because we all know how much anyone would want to hear that when they first meet someone.

3. Tell everyone, especially his friend, about how into him you are. Bring up all the details of what you’ve talked about too. Especially if it’s right after you’ve started talking/dating.

If it hasn’t really become anything yet, don’t make it into something it’s not. Sure, tell your close friends whatever, because that’s what they’re for. But there’s no need to blab it around to anyone else. First of all, it’s not really their business and second you’re going to make everyone confused about what’s actually going on, including him.

4. Ask to see his phone.

Just writing that sentence made me cringe. First, if you can’t trust them, then you shouldn’t even be talking to or dating them. And even then, doing this from the get-go would be an extreme red flag. Give people their privacy and respect them enough to assume they’re trustworthy. If they prove otherwise, then don’t ask to see their phone, just drop them.

5. Tell them they can’t be friends with other girls.

This all goes back to the trust thing. And besides, would you really expect him to drop friends he had before he even met you? Would you be okay if he didn’t let you hang out with other guys? You don’t get to control him and you shouldn’t want to. Don’t be that girl.

6. Ask to hang out all the time.

This is what we call being clingy. If you want to spend time together, then great! You should want to! But you both have lives, other friends and family. Sometimes you are going to have to spend time a part (which is a good thing!) Be understanding when you can’t hang out together. Trust me, there are times you both will have better things to do.

7. Compare your relationships to other peoples.

“Why don’t we go do things like ___&___ do?” “Why don’t you buy me this like ___ does for ___?” Seriously, do you hear the stuff that comes out of your mouth? If you want to do an activity together, then suggest it and go do it. There’s no need to make it seem like it’s his fault you aren’t doing some random thing that some other couple is doing. Secondly, you shouldn’t be telling anyone or asking anyone why they aren’t buying you stuff. Get a job and buy the stuff you want with your own money.

8. Talking about your relationship all over social media.

We all know those people who subtweet every time they get in a fight. It’s annoying, it’s not secretive, and I guarantee you someone is sending him screenshots of the trash-talk you’re saying. Keep your problems between one another because they’re your problems! On the other side of the spectrum, cute pics and appreciation posts are great. However, there’s no need to post about it EVERY DAY.

9. Track him on Find My Friend.

This one is just funny to me. Because who would think people actually do this? But they do. It’s cool if you have each other’s location in case you wind up in a ditch or something. But if you’re constantly checking to see if he is where he says he is, or worse you’re showing up places based on his location, you need to chillax.

Have a good time, get to know new people and be yourself. Don’t try to be someone you’re not. These are just some suggestions to maintaining the cool, calm and collected look. (Some of them are just so you legitimately aren’t crazy). Take into account the ones you want, that are applicable, or feel free to laugh about the more extreme ones.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
