Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s gift giving season. Maybe you started your shopping on Black Friday/Cyber Monday or you can’t stand the crowds so you’ll be doing your shopping in the coming weeks. No matter the circumstance, you probably have some men on your list to shop for. I’ve notice that it’s always much easier for me to plan gifts for the women in my life, than it is the men.

3 Tips on Meeting His Family For the First Time

I remember the first Thanksgiving I spent with The Boy’s family like it was yesterday. I was SUPER nervous to be meeting such a large portion of his family and agonized over what to wear for days. My mom and grandma both felt some kind of way because this would be the first time I was going to be spending Thanksgiving any place else. Meeting your boyfriend’s parents is one thing, but meeting the family is a whole different ball game. Will they like me? What if they don’t? What if I don’t like them?

This difference of opinion has lead to an overwhelming amount of disagreement on my Facebook timeline. So today I’m going to share 3 tips on how to have a constructive disagreement….with your partner, your friend, whoever. (more…)

3 Things Couples in Long Term Relationships Argue Over

When a relationship is still shiny and new, we’re in what’s known as the honeymoon stage. You’re spending a lot of time with bae, actively going out of your way to avoid conflict, and can’t imagine that your lover could ever do any wrong. Well eventually that new relationship smell wears off and you seem a lot more aware of little things or habits that irk your soul. Don’t worry, you’re in good company, your relationship (probably) isn’t doomed, and you’ll both live to argue another day. I recently gathered a group of my girlfriends, who have been in relationships for 1-5 years, to investigate the 3 things couples argue over the most. The results were pretty funny, but what became most blatantly clear is that we’re basically all fighting the same battles and I realized all of my Royals probably are too. (more…)
