To The Boy I Gave My Number To

To The Boy I Gave My Number To

All I wanted was to get to know you.

First, let me start off by saying I do not just give any boy my number and honestly do not even bother talking to many because of this reason. No, I am not asking for cute texts in the morning or cute stuff girls wish guys would send to them all I wanted was to get to know you. I wanted a conversation that consisted outside of work.

I gave you my number because I liked you. I was brave that day when I went up to you and gave you my number. It was definitely outside of my comfort zone. I was afraid that you would not text me and you would just blow me off although, you did end up texting me. You actually texted me, let me just say how shocked I was. From there, it was great. You texted me quite a bit and seemed to care.

Fast forward to a month later and I can barely get you to text me one time in a day. I text you and then I do not get a response until 8 hours later or even the next morning. If this is the case and you have been wondering why I did not text you one day or multiple days in a row, it is because of this reason. I do not have time to sit around and wait for a text from you or wait for you to even talk to me.

It is sad when you cannot even spare two seconds to text someone back, but I guess texting is just too complicated for you? I remember a couple weeks back sitting around wondering what I did and if I did something wrong that you are not answering me but then it dawned on me. It definitely was not me, it was you! I kept trying and pushing to get you to talk but it never worked so I gave up. I am done trying to push something that is not going anywhere. I obviously am not worthy of your time and that's fine because there are plenty more people in this world who would love to give me the time of day.

Now we barely talk anymore and when I text you and you do not text until really late at night when I am sleeping. I wake up to the text message but I do not respond because the conversation is already over. This is what I mean, it is hard to keep a conversation with someone who texts back hours later. The topic has died by then and now we are trying to start a new one that will just end after one text.

This is frustrating, so I think I have learned my lesson on giving boys my number. I am in college and can be busy at times. Now that I am on summer break, will you try to talk to me more? hm, I doubt it but I guess you never know. I am done letting you waste my time so when you actually want to keep a conversation then let me know. For now, I am just going to continue my life.

Why Girls Love The Dad Bod


In case you haven't noticed lately, girls are all about that dad bod. Girls have been dealing with body image issues since the beginning of time until recent (for those of you who consider yourselves to be "Thick thin") I hadn't heard about this body type until my roommate mentioned it. She used to be crazy over guys she claimed had the dad bod. After observing the guys she found attractive, I came to understand this body type well and was able to identify it. The dad bod is a nice balance between a beer gut and working out. The dad bod says, "I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time." It's not an overweight guy, but it isn't one with washboard abs, either.

The dad bod is a new trend and fraternity boys everywhere seem to be rejoicing. Turns out skipping the gym for a few brews last Thursday after class turned out to be in their favor. While we all love a sculpted guy, there is just something about the dad bod that makes boys seem more human, natural, and attractive. Here are a few reasons that girls are crazy about the dad bod.

It doesn't intimidate us.
Few things are worse than taking a picture in a bathing suit, one being taking a picture in a bathing suit with a guy who is crazy fit. We don't want a guy that makes us feel insecure about our body. We are insecure enough as it is. We don't need a perfectly sculpted guy standing next to us to make us feel worse.

We like being the pretty one.

We love people saying "they look cute together." But we still like being the center of attention. We want to look skinny and the bigger the guy, the smaller we feel and the better we look next to you in a picture.

Better cuddling.
No one wants to cuddle with a rock. Or Edward Cullen. The end.

Good eats.
The dad bod says he doesn't meal prep every Sunday night so if you want to go to Taco Tuesday or $4 pitcher Wednesday, he'd be totally down. He's not scared of a cheat meal because he eats just about anything and everything.

You know what you're getting.
Girls tend to picture their future together with their guys early on. Therefore, if he already has the dad bod going on, we can get used to it before we date him, marry him, have three kids. We know what we are getting into when he's got the same exact body type at the age of 22 that he's going to have at 45.

So there you go. A simple break down of why girls everywhere are going nuts over this body type on males. We like it. We love it. We want some more of it. So here's to you dad bods, keep it up. Men, confidently strut that gut on the beach because while you stare at us in our bikinis we will be staring just as hard.

To My Future Soulmate, From The Younger Me Who Hasn't Found You Yet

Sometimes you need to take a minute and listen to your younger self.


I remember sitting in AP English Language junior year of high school wondering why in the world my teacher wanted us to write a letter about what we look for in a significant other. At the time all I could really think about was why would this even matter later in life, but now I see how important 17-year-old me words actually were.

While some of my thoughts have progressed throughout the years, some of these words still stick true to what I still believe a soulmate should be.

Robin Williams once said, " Divorce is expensive. I used to joke they were going to call it 'all the money,' but they changed it to 'alimony.'" He had a legitimate reason for saying this, considering how painful all the paperwork and loses are during a divorce. This was true for one couple who thought that they had it all figured out until they realized that they didn't.

They would bicker so much, that even their normal conversations would sound like a battle. So, they got divorced just a year after their marriage, but by doing this they had to face a ton of difficult decisions. They lost everything when they just weren't meant to be and that caused their whole world to collapse at their fingertips.

Just imagine, thinking you've found the one person you're supposed to spend the rest of your life with and then suddenly you're all alone because they weren't the one for you.

For this reason, I've decided to make an outline of what I would look for in a soulmate. This will hopefully save me the trouble in the future of a messy divorce.

My future soulmate MUST be someone humorous.

Someone who knows how to make appropriate jokes at the right time. There's a huge difference between being humorous and just being rude.

I personally want a guy who makes me laugh when I'm sad and laughs at my jokes even if they aren't as humorous as I'd hope. It's important to be with someone who shares your sense of humor. Why be with someone boring and be miserable?

Since I was a music student in high school, ambition is something I've never lacked, and wouldn't want my soulmate to lack it either. I have high aspirations for my future, and I personally wouldn't feel comfortable being the only one with big dreams in a relationship.

Therefore, my soulmate would need to have ambition. He would have to have the drive to reach his goals without fear of failure. To have ambition doesn't just mean to have a desire to achieve something, it means you give it your all when it comes to reaching goals.

Another extremely important factor in any relationship is support.

A soulmate should be the person you come to when you need encouraging words that inspire you to do your best, not someone who laughs at your problems. Being supportive also means being understanding of the world around you and to have a general knowledge of it.

Someone who doesn't care for my religious beliefs, what I aspire to do in the future or others opinions is not someone who I would want to be in a relationship with, let alone marry. My soul mate wouldn't have to share the same beliefs or goals that I have, but he would have to be understanding of them.

A soulmate is someone that you will spend your whole life with, which is why a person must carefully look for things they would prefer in theirs. Although, I do personally believe that fate will bring you the one person you're supposed to spend your life with. You don't have to go actively searching for the person whom you'll be with, you just have to let life find a way of them finding you.

Of course, making a list of characteristics for the perfect soulmate helps, but when it comes down to it you don't have full control over who your soulmate will be. Let fate run its course, and you'll end up with the person who is just right for you.
