To The Man Who Dares To Take On An Independent Woman

Do you have what it takes?

It takes a strong man to be with a strong woman. If you are thinking about taking on an independent woman, there are some things you must know...

1. We will need our alone time. The world won't end if we don't see each other every day. We will want time to run our errands, grab a quick lunch, or take an afternoon snooze. Sometimes we just want to do these things on our own.

2. We like to do things our own way. We will tell you the best route to take to that new restaurant and the best hand soap to keep in your bathroom. We are always open to new ideas, but let us try our way first. Please forgive us in advance!

3. We are blunt. We are never afraid to voice our opinions, so don't expect us to sugar coat anything. We tend to be brutally honest, but we will always do it with a smile on our face.

4. We look nice for us, not for you. We love to dress up and look our best. There is nothing more empowering than putting on a pair of heels and strutting out the door! We will always want to impress you, but we are more concerned with impressing ourselves.

5. We will gladly help pay for dinner. We don't mind reaching for the bill every once in awhile. We work hard for our money and don't expect you to pick up every tab.

6. We are loyal. We are passionate in everything we do. There will never be a time for you to question our commitment.

7. We are confident. We are natural born leaders! We are proud of our strengths and successes, and will want to share them with you.

8. We aren't interested in flooding Instagram with photos of us. We aren't the type to whip out our camera every time we see you. We like to save photo ops for special occasions.

9. We are your biggest supporter. We care about the things that are important to you and are always on your side. We want to be your teammate, not your cheerleader.

10. We won't indulge in mindless conversations. We aren't the biggest fans of senseless communication. "Sup?" is not a text message we are interested in responding to.

11. We want to explore. We live to experience new things. We will always be down to pack up for the weekend and take a sporadic road trip. We have big plans for our future adventures and always dream big.

12. We want you to spend time with your friends. We will never ask you to blow off a night with the guys for us. We want to stay home and drink wine in the bathtub anyway.

13. We need a strong man. We need a man who can keep up with us. We are constantly pushing ourselves to do greater things, and we want someone who will do the same.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
