Winter Without A Bae: Ask Jack(ie) #7

Jackie, all my friends are getting boyfriends this holiday season, and I don't have a bae to do cute winter things with. How do I have fun this winter without a bae?

Dear No Bae (But it's OK),

A bae does not equate to having winter fun. Fun comes from yourself! Like when people say that things are only awkward if you make them awkward. Things are fun if you make them fun! When you're in the happy spirit, anything can be "funny," and thus cause you to have fun. When are you the most happy? You should do those things to get you in a happy spirit, and then do a bunch of fun holiday things with your family and friends. If those people are busy, you could use this time to pursue some hobbies you've had to put aside because of school. Or, just celebrate the holidays by yourself and meet some awesome people on the way! (still consider stranger danger though)

Cute Winter Things to do With or Without a Bae:

1. Play/ learn an instrument

When you have control over what you're playing, your mind goes all over the place and you end up losing yourself in music for hours. Or, being frustrated and figuring out a song for hours. Ha. But once you get it down, you'll be more than happy! Holiday songs with your new musical skills?

2. Make and Drink Hot Chocolate

Have you tried peppermint hot cocoa? It's DELICIOUS. Try making some from scratch! Travel to the tropical regions of South America and find a cacao tree, make your own chocolate, milk your own cow, build your own stove, create your own metal pot, and you're all set. A.K.A Google a recipe

3. Make a snowman! If you have snow...

It's about 70 degrees Fahrenheit where I am... totally snow-inducing.

4. Experiment with a winter makeup look!

Yes, some of us like to put on makeup for fun. It's not only a way to "impress people."

5. Mmmmmmmmm— bake and cook some holiday foods.

Love comes in many forms.

6. Almost anything else you have fun doing with a bae in winter, you can have fun doing by yourself!

You just need to let that notion that you aren't able to have fun by yourself go bye bye. You are such a worthy person of fun, emotions, and holiday cheer that you don't even need to share it with a bae!

Also, if you want a boyfriend, I've been watching ion television Christmas rom coms with my family all day, and apparently the way to get a boyfriend seems to involve some kind of Christmas ballet, a dangerous elevator, magical people, and dogs. So basically, get a dog and keep riding elevators up and down until you meet a bae.

About the picture below... it's just there for a chuckle. :) If you put yourself out there—ask people out on dates—you'll be sure to get a date eventually! There is no success without suc... JK I tried for a cool quote. But anyways, a little "failure" (but really if you can't get a date I promise it doesn't mean you're a failure) in the past, will eventually lead to success if you want it to. You just have to keep your spirits up and keep on truckin'.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
