Sure, My Love Life May Be Nonexistent Right Now, But I Do Want To Discover Love In The Future

Sure, My Love Life May Be Nonexistent Right Now, But I Do Want To Discover Love In The Future

Love takes time to grow, and I also need time to flourish as well.


Have I ever been in love? That is the question. Don't get me wrong, I have certainly loved the idea of being in love, but I haven't quite found my person. I have pondered this with every rom-com I have watched recently, so judge me all you want.

Of course, I have had crushes on guys and have made up scenarios in my head of maybe ending up with one of them in the future. But to be honest, I'm not exactly worried about finding him.

I'm perfectly fine with living my life without having to depend on someone else. Would it be nice for someone like Peter Kavinsky to write me sweet notes and help me take up my case of water bottles up to the fourth floor of my apartment? It would be super nice, but it is not going to happen in a split second. Love takes time to grow, and I also need time to flourish as well.

A relationship will happen when the time is right for me, and I will go at my own pace. When my Prince Charming comes, I will be sure to make sure he treats me like a true queen, and that's what all girls should strive for. I think in this day and age we do get so wrapped up in being #relationshipgoals, but truthfully I think its time to have some #megoals. Set some goals for yourself first and then if your person comes along, naturally sprinkle them into your life and goals.

Why Girls Love The Dad Bod

If your man can rock the dad bod, he's a keeper.


In case you haven't noticed lately, girls are all about that dad bod.

Girls have been dealing with body image issues since the beginning of time until recent (for those of you who consider yourselves to be "Thick thin") I hadn't heard about this body type until my roommate mentioned it. She used to be crazy over guys she claimed had the dad bod.

After observing the guys she found attractive, I came to understand this body type well and was able to identify it. The dad bod is a nice balance between a beer gut and working out. The dad bod says, "I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time." It's not an overweight guy, but it isn't one with washboard abs, either.

The dad bod is a new trend and fraternity boys everywhere seem to be rejoicing. Turns out skipping the gym for a few brews last Thursday after class turned out to be in their favor. While we all love a sculpted guy, there is just something about the dad bod that makes boys seem more human, natural, and attractive. Here are a few reasons that girls are crazy about the dad bod.

It doesn't intimidate us.
Few things are worse than taking a picture in a bathing suit, one being taking a picture in a bathing suit with a guy who is crazy fit. We don't want a guy that makes us feel insecure about our body. We are insecure enough as it is. We don't need a perfectly sculpted guy standing next to us to make us feel worse.

We like being the pretty one.
We love people saying "they look cute together." But we still like being the center of attention. We want to look skinny and the bigger the guy, the smaller we feel and the better we look next to you in a picture.

Better cuddling.
No one wants to cuddle with a rock. Or Edward Cullen. The end.

Good eats.
The dad bod says he doesn't meal prep every Sunday night so if you want to go to Taco Tuesday or $4 pitcher Wednesday, he'd be totally down. He's not scared of a cheat meal because he eats just about anything and everything.

You know what you're getting.
Girls tend to picture their future together with their guys early on. Therefore, if he already has the dad bod going on, we can get used to it before we date him, marry him, have three kids. We know what we are getting into when he's got the same exact body type at the age of 22 that he's going to have at 45.

So there you go. A simple break down of why girls everywhere are going nuts over this body type on males. We like it. We love it. We want some more of it. So here's to you dad bods, keep it up. Men, confidently strut that gut on the beach because while you stare at us in our bikinis we will be staring just as hard.
