35 Harsh Realities Of Modern Dating, As Told By Kris Jenner

Modern dating is literally the worst. No one wants to commit, no one wants to go on dates, you're expected to be exclusive without actually being in a relationship, communication about your feelings is almost nonexistent, and ghosting is a common occurrence. The least I can do to ease the pain, is relate modern dating struggles to Kris Jenner gifs. Quarantine really has given me a lot of free time.

When you're lurking to find something that will probably make you upset and you see something that makes you upset.

*Turns on 'Feels' playlist.*

When your boyfriend, who isn't actually your boyfriend, cheats on you by talking to another girl.

From the wise words of TikTok, "I just sit back and observe."

When you see another girl on his story.

I mean I knew, but I didn't want proof.

When he actually has conversations with you instead of sending blank Snapchats back and forth.

The bar is literally on the floor ladies.

When he says he thinks you're great but he's not really looking for a relationship.

WOW! Did not see that one coming AT ALL. Crazy.

When you wake up in the morning still on delivered from the night before.

He's probably sleeping until 2 pm.

When you're meeting up with a new guy for the first time and need to take the edge off.

Iykyk.

When a girl comments heart eyes under his Insta pic.

Who is she and is she prettier than me?

When you're stressing because you have been on delivered for an hour but he was just taking a nap.

We've all been there.

Taking pictures of your significant other doing literally anything.

He could literally be doing homework and I'm like, "Damn!"

When he says "You're the only girl I'm talking to."

"There's no competition." "It's only you." "I don't need anyone else." Mhm, sure.

When you post a bomb pic on your story and that one guy who always hypes you up tells you you're pretty.

Thank you for your service.

Your friend to you after you've talked about Chad from Sigma Alpha Pi for the past hour.

*Absolutely?

Friend: "Don't you think you're a little too harsh on guys? You: "No... well, maybe — yeah, I guess."

Points were made.

You to him after spending the past 8 hours together.

Oops, my heart went f*ck.

You to yourself when you stop checking his location on the Snapchat map.

Miss Movin' On!

"I think you're great but..."

F*CK. Here we go again.

Wondering why you're not good enough for a guy who doesn't even put in the effort to be honest with you.

Just because someone does not communicate with you properly does not mean you are not good enough!

When he leaves your text on delivered all day but is actively on his phone.

He doesn't care, sis.

When you ask him to cuddle but he has to study.

It's fine, I'm fine.

"Yeah so I know that we've been hanging out for a few weeks and went on dates and you met my parents and I told you I loved you, but I don't think that I want to be in a relationship."

Thankfully this hasn't happened to me, but I've heard stories of girls' experiences with this, and honestly, what the f*ck??

Trying to give yourself an inspirational self-love speech after a breakup.

More like, "I think I'm losing my mind."

When he said he didn't want a relationship but you see him on Instagram with his new girlfriend two months later.

Honey, he wanted a relationship, just not with you!

When you put two and two together and realize you were right the whole time.

This FBI case is now closed.

When he mentions his family members but you already know all their names because you stalked his mom's Facebook.

One time a guy's phone was ringing with his brother's name on it and I said "Oh, your brother's calling you," and he asked how I knew his brother's name... haha... sh*t.

When you're emotionally unavailable but start talking to a new guy anyway.

This the part where I'm gonna get hurt!

When you've swiped through Tinder, Bumble, and Hinge and realize you'll be alone forever 

Nice.

When he gets upset about you seeing other guys even though he's seeing other girls.

This sh*t does not make any sense.

When he says his favorite music genre is rap but the only rap you've listened to is Cardi B.

That's, like, the music that rhymes, right?

When he asks you to his frat's date party or formal.

I may be one of many girls, but at least I am the #1 pick in the draft.

When you get the "I'm sorry, I f*cked up" text a week to a few months after you stopped talking to him.

One time a guy sent me the "I f*cked up text" FOUR MONTHS after we stopped talking. I didn't even have his number on my phone anymore so I had to google it.

When he leaves you on delivered for over 24 hours.

Yeah, it's a no for me.

When you have to get over yet another failed almost-relationship.

On to the next one!

When you see him at a bar months later and know you're over him but also start overthinking about why you weren't enough.

Sad girl hours.

When you remember you're a boss a** b*tch who is amazing and doesn't need a guy to complete her.

Read that again ^.

I personally felt attacked while writing these, but knowing that a lot of girls reading this share similar experiences, reminds me that it isn't us. We are enough and we need to start feeling like it instead of letting our self-worth be determined by frat boys.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
