25 Tweets That REALLY Expose What Relationships Are Like

Let's not destroy our faith in relationships. They are kinda sucky and kinda cute, so it's not all bad. Even if I'm in a relationship, #relationshipgoals posts make my eyes roll. I'm a romantic, but mushy gushy, seemingly perfect couples splattered on social media makes me cringe. **insert eye roll**

#WCW and public love poems don't show the realities of dating. Relationships are messy, even if you and your boyfriend have the strongest relationship, there is more than just the hand holding and butterfly kisses.

Here are some of the real-life, straightforward truths:

First date expectations

F**k the articles that give you rules on what you can/can do, eat, say on a first date. If I want to wear a new white dress and eat spaghetti and meatballs, let me be free! My normal is speaking way too loud, embarrassing those I'm with, and asking a buttload of questions. My boyfriend experienced all three on our first date and he stuck around. Guess I did something right!

You may just end up with an empty wallet

But the experience and learnt lessons are worth it! (Just keep reminding yourself of this.)

It's a game of 20 questions

I'm trying to twist this into a positive, but this is just the utter truth. But, if you really really were head over heels in love with them, no new information would push you away.

Always be prepared

Chrissy Teigen isn't just hot, she's also a genius and so much more.

It'll all be worth it (hopefully)

Two years ago, I asked my best friend where my soulmate is, he looked and me and said, "Africa." A year later, I met Chris, who spent a chunk of his life in Africa.

Drop the expecations 

Having expectations never ends up well. Have an open mind and the little things will light up your day.

New bios on Tinder

Disclaimer: I eat a lot, I'm an attention whore, I also have night sweats, so be prepared.


My roommate motivates her boyfriend to reply to every DM she gets. It's hysterical.

What girlfriends are for

The other day, my boyfriend asked if I could bring a bag just to hold his stuff.

 Nothing wrong with gaining a few pounds

True life: boyfriends make you fat.

 Someone make a dating rulebook

Honestly, I'm sure one exists somewhere.

 Single blessings

Holding on to the blanket while he's trying to steal it away is a third world problem, but it's still a nuisance.

 The actual Netflix & chill

My boyfriend and I have been watching "Arrow," and there have already been a countless amount of times where I wipe off my drool and ask, "Wait, what did I miss? What happened? What's happening right now?!"

 Don't do it

Excuse me while I gather up her friends to steal her phone so she doesn't double text again.

 The mushiest compliments

My boyfriend once told me that I'm a 10/100.

 My way or the highway

Your hands make me tremble, and when you use them to place the plate upright, my heart begins to melt.

 Just dance it out


 Wait your turn

It's like a professional dividing her time for her patients.

 Third wheeling

My two roommates are my best friend and her boyfriend. I know third wheeling all too well.

 Don't lose your independence

Go have fun! Have a girl's night! Just because you're in a relationship doesn't mean you're locked in the house.

 He probably didn't think this all the way through

One time, out of nowhere my boyfriend turned to me and asked, "Can we adopt a baby that's already potty trained?"

 When you don't define the relationship

Just because you went on one date doesn't mean you're dating.

 The aftermath of a relationship

I would lose it.

 Now that's a transformation I like to see

Look at you now! You were beautiful either way, but now you're glowing.

 My dating life could be a reality show on E!

Honestly, I'm just waiting for the camera men to show up.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
