Dating 101: Back to the Basics

I have been out of the dating game for a while, but I am still a fan of good, old-fashioned courting. Back in the day, dating seemed so much simpler – maybe because there weren’t as many distractions (i.e., social media). But now that we are in the digital era, is it generally more difficult to connect with people on a more personal level? I mean really connect.

The Good Man I Couldn't Commit To...At First

My fiancé and I have been dating since November of 2013, however until February of 2014; committing wasn’t going to happen on my end. It wasn’t that I didn’t like Brandon, it was that I was an emotional train wreck. How do you commit when every aspect of your life is spiraling out of control? Especially to a man that everyone said is happier now that I am in his life and to a man whose friend’s already had a preconceived thought that I would hurt him.  So why was I train wreck? I was just a typical 22 year old with a typical lifestyle, right? WRONG! I am so not your typical twenty-something....more

5 Relationship Survival Tips for Travelers

When my partner and I first met, we did the best we could when it came to “dating” because we both had very hectic schedules and we lived in different states. The long distance was hard enough, but adding the fact that we both traveled for work only added more challenges. A couple of years later, he moved to a closer state and became more stationary, but my travel increased a great deal. ...more
