To My Boyfriend's Mom

To My Boyfriend's Mom

Thank you for raising the man of my dreams.

Every little girl dreams of who she will be with when they grow up. When I was a little girl this was something I wondered about all of the time and I am so happy with the man that God brought into my life. I have found the person that my heart belongs to and I want to thank you for raising him into becoming a very hardworking and loving person.

Before meeting you for the first time I was beyond nervous. I was so excited to meet the woman who raised the love of my life. I was hoping that you would approve of your son's girlfriend, and luckily, we clicked instantly! I am so lucky to have you in my life and I look forward to the many more laughs and memories we will share together.

I can't thank you enough for all that you do for myself and your son. I truly feel blessed to say that God not only brought the perfect guy into my life, but he also brought such a caring and loving mom into my life. You always go out of your way to make others happy, and for that, I am so grateful.

Thank you for teaching your son how to be respectful. No matter where we go, he always is the most out going and respectful person, not just to women, but to complete strangers. He makes friends anywhere we go and strives to make everyones' day better. The way he is respectful to myself, my little sisters, and family literally melts my heart and makes me love him even more. Without you, things would not be the way they are today, so thank you SO MUCH for teaching him respect.

Thank you for treating me like one of your own. There has never been a moment where I felt out of place or uncomfortable when around your family. Knowing that I get to be apart of this amazing family makes my heart so happy and I want you to know that this means the world to me.

Thank you for raising him in Christ. I am beyond blessed to have someone who shares the same love for our Lord and Savior. I will forever thank you for raising him to be such a strong and uplifting Christian. I can't thank you enough for this wonderful gift.

Thank you for always being there for me. Whenever I have a troubling time or I just need to talk, you are always there to lift me up. You have given me advice on every issue I have had in the past, so thank you so much for always being there for when times get tough.

There are an endless amount of reasons that I am thankful for, but most of all, thank you for allowing me to be with your son. He has changed my life in so many positive ways and has made me into such a better young woman. Without all that you do and for who you are, this wouldn't be possible. I am so blessed that God brought someone into my life that has shown me different things in life. You are a role model for the type of mother I would like to be in the future and you mean the world to me.

You are the funniest mother I have ever met and you make my life so happy. You are one of the sweetest people I know and you sure did raise a once in a lifetime kind of son. I could go on for hours about all of the reasons I love and appreciate you, but once again thank you for the perfect man that I get to call the love of my life.

Love always,

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

4 Signs That You Might Be A Pushover In Your Relationship

There's a fine line between being considerate and overly-accommodating in a relationship, here are some signs to help you determine which side of the line you're on.


While most of us consider ourselves independent individuals who are secure enough to maintain our own values while respecting someone else's, the difference between being flexible and completely bending to a romantic partner's will can be a slippery slope.

Just because you're in a relationship doesn't mean that everything the two of you disagree on suddenly disappears. There are times when you'll have to occasionally make concessions in order to reach a solution, but you should never be the one to relent every on every issue. If you're not sure about how you stand in your relationship here are few signs that you may be a dating pushover.

1. You let them set the pace of the relationship

It can be hard to know if things are moving at a normal speed, especially if you're new to relationships. If you feel like things are moving too quickly or like the two of you aren't on the same page and choose to ignore it because the other person is content with where you are, then you're not giving your own feelings enough consideration. A relationship is not just about one person's emotions, disregarding the ones you're unsure about to avoid making waves doesn't make you peacekeeper, it makes you a pushover.

2. Your lack of an opinion is replaced by theirs

It's okay not to have an opinion on every issue plaguing our society at the moment, but it's not okay to allow your partner to declare a stance for you. If you're having a conversation with friends and politics are being broached and your S/O prefaces their statement with "We think," -knowing darn well that you don't have anything to say about Trump's administration and they think he's the best thing since Netflix started streaming "Friends"- and you don't interject with your true feelings, then you've just let them know that their preferences are more important than yours.

3. You conform to the way they see you

People are multifaceted and complex beings. While Tinder may ask you to describe yourself by a handful of defining characteristics to better match you with a mate, you are more than just "quiet" and "indoorsy". If you find yourself with someone who reduces you to labels that complement them, chances are that the more you're around them the more you'll start to only identify yourself by those labels as well. When you conform to the 2-dimensional image that someone else has of you, you lose parts of your identity and become a social chameleon.

4. You alter your dreams to fit into theirs

It's exciting to picture your life with someone you care and are serious about. Of course, you have to make some configurations in order for things to work for the both of you, but there has to be an equal amount of compromise for it to be healthy. If you're working towards a degree that would open doors for you to meet new people and have new experiences but your S/O has dreams to get settled sooner rather than later and makes you feel like you're overreaching in your life, don't abandon your vision for something that would fit into theirs.

Being a pushover does not mean you're a weak person. I don't think anyone sets out with the intent to be a chameleon dater. Sometimes it happens gradually, two people start off in a relationship thinking that they're compatible and then one person grows more comfortable and their will and opinions turn out to be stronger than the other persons'. Other times, you just make a poor judgment call and try to make things work with someone that wasn't meant for you.

If you find yourself to be a pushover in your relationship and you're unhappy about it, you can change. Take some time to learn about yourself and figure out what you want and who you want to be. You can't choose someone who really loves you and values your mind if you don't know how you need to be loved and understood. Whether you need a to step away from the dating scene, have a conversation with your romantic partner or even take a break from them, understanding yourself will strengthen all of your relationships in the long run.
