5 Things Girls Who've Never Had A Real Relationship Need to Know

You're perfect just the way you are.

5 Things Girls Who've Never Had A Real Relationship Need to Know

 Hi, my name is Grace. I am 19, a sophomore in college, and I have never had a boyfriend.

You Don't Need a Man

Yes, I know. This is said over and over again. Coming from someone who wishes she had a mans to cuddle with, this is something I hold near and dear to my heart. It's a nice thought to have someone in your life to care for you and to snuggle with you when it's cold out, but in the grand scheme of things, you are a strong woman. You do not need a man to validate this.

Never Settle For Less  

Sometimes, I think to myself, "gee...are my expectations too high?" but then I remind myself I deserve the best. You do too. Don't just settle for someone because you want a boyfriend. It's not fair to you, and quite honestly, not to the guy either. He doesn't deserve to get strung along for the same reasons you don't deserve to be strung along. Be honest with yourself and be honest in your relationship .If he isn't treating you right, and I know it's hard, but leave the relationship. You matter just as much as your partner. You need to be happy in your relationship.

There is Nothing Wrong With You

This one is pretty self explanatory. You are you. You are a wonderful person, and if the men you have interacted with in your life don't see this, it is their loss. Keep being you, you wonderful, perfect person. You know you deserve the best.

The Right Guy will Come Around

Eventually, we will no longer be perpetually single. We will be in relationships, we will date people, and some of us will be lucky to get the right guy on the first try. But, we also know that this almost never happens. One of the greatest pieces of advice my mom told me before I went to college was, "date a lot" not in a sleeping around type of way, but to see the guys that are out there, to understand what I need in a partner. It may take years to find the right person, but they are somewhere out there. Patience is a virtue. I know it sounds cheesy, that we all have "the one" but I believe we have several "the ones" in our lives, just at various stages.   

It can be hard to have literally been single your whole life, especially when you see people on Instagram and Facebook super happy with their significant other. But, at the end of the day, someone will come along to watch Disney movies at 2 AM with you. And when all else fails, adopt a dog or cat and eat a bunch of chocolate.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
