Mr. Right will come when the time is right. Although it may feel like you just missed him, he's still out there. Sometimes it's better to be alone than in bad company. Here are 7 unhealthy signs that you're not ready for Mr. Right right now:

1. You're still playing games.

Don't push someone's limits or test them to prove their love for you. Don't waste time by leading a potential partner on and giving them the wrong idea.

2. You're afraid of commitment.

Being single is fun, but if you're seriously dating someone- you need to understand that it is a commitment. If you're not ready to only see one person seriously and invest time in them, keep swiping.

3. You're a huge flirt.

Sure, having multiple options can be a great thing, but people can be hurt along the way.

4. You always have a guy on the back burner.

Don't use people only for your benefit. This go-to guy has feelings too, you should consider them. Don't just date someone to not be alone; is it better to be alone or in bad company?

5. You're in love with the chase.

Of course, it's great being courted, but when will you want things to be more serious and exclusive? When will you let a man love you and only you?

6. You're looking for a man as if it's a hobby.

Finding a mate shouldn't be your top priority. Let him come to you- and don't be desperate or lower your standards.

7. You're waiting for a guy to make you happy.

You need to find joy in the life you're already living. You have to understand that no guy is going to make you completely happy all the time.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
