Sometimes, your crush's intentions can be hard to decipher. But other times, they can be clear as day. We can analyze texts with our friends, strategize and plot our next moves, but the reality is the same: they might not be that into you. As cuffing season is entering full force, here are a few signs your hookup is NOT trying to cuff you:

1. They don't introduce you to their friends or family.

If they see you as someone truly special to them, they'll want to show you off to their friends and introduce you to the people that matter to them. If they never invite you to anything that involves anyone else, and don't mention you to anyone, they probably don't want anything serious with you.

2. Their dates are lazy and sex-oriented.

They don't go the extra mile for your dates and it's clear they just want to hook up the whole time. Chances are, they're comfortable with Netflix and Chill every night - emphasis on the Chill.

3. They never text or call during the day.

Cue the 3 AM "You Up?" text.

4. They avoid sharing you on social media. 

It seems like they don't want any of their friends and followers (or any of their other hook-ups) to see that you two are hanging out.

5. They don't make any future plans with you.

Okay, you shouldn't be planning where you're going to go for your honeymoon with your new S.O. But if they avoid making any plans past this week with you, and make no effort to include you in future plans, chances are, they don't want you in them.

6. They don't try to get to know you.

In your conversations, they don't ask you much about yourself, your passions, or your family. It seems they only really care about one thing.

7. They're still talking to other people. 

They're still going on dates, texting other girls, and sliding into DMs that aren't yours.

8. They tell you they're not looking for anything serious.

It might not even be about you, just that they're not at that point in their life. People can be a mystery at times - but if your hook-up says this to you, they probably mean it, and you have to accept it.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
