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.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
