When it comes to relationships, we all want to present the best version of ourselves. Perfection is a goal many of us strive for, but can never achieve. Furthermore, it is unfair to expect this unattainable perfection from your partner. Acceptance of their whole selves, mistakes and all, is the purest form of love you can show. Despite being flawed humans, there are things we unknowingly do that allow for an even greater appreciation for each other. Here is a list of the small qualities "perfect partners" have that make hearts flutter and hugs tighten.

1) Mature, but still fun.

2) Open and vulnerable.

3) Honest with others and you.

4) Optimistic and able to see the good.

5) Eyes light up when talking about passions.

6) Supportive of dreams.

7) Remembers the little things.

8) Keeps your secrets.

9) Capable of deep and meaningful conversations.

10) Aware and knowledgeable of current events.

11) Lifts people up, instead of tearing them down.

12) Fights the problem, not the person.  

13) Is a shoulder to cry on during stressful times.

14) Realistic, but fantastical.

15) Loves to serve and help others.

16) Never pressures anything; patient.

17) Allows space when needed.

18) Shares the umbrella.

19) Interested in what you have to say.

20) Has other friends that they care about.

21) Sees the value in each person.

22) Confident.

23) Loves family.

24) Romantic without having to be asked.

25) Shamelessly sings in the car, even if awful.

26) Notices a change in appearance, like a new haircut.

27) Takes care of you when you're under the weather.

28) Makes you a better person.

29) Has a personality.

30) Knows how to make you feel better when you're sad.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
