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…)

I can hardly believe that summer will officially be over in just a couple of weeks. This summer has passed in a blur. Between trying to finish up grad school, attending weddings, and working multiple jobs, The Boy and I haven’t had as much time for dates. Thankfully, we live together, so seeing each other isn’t an issue, but frankly we haven’t really had the energy to think outside of the box as far as date nights are concerned. As of today, I’m going to commit to making more of an effort during the fall season. Since I’ve published 10 inexpensive date ideas for the winter, spring, and summer. it seemed only logical to compile a list of 10 inexpensive fall date ideas. I figure this list will serve as a good brain storm session for me AND aid my royals in finding inexpensive (but good) dates to wow their partner. (more…)
By the time you reach your mid-to late 20’s it is inevitable that you have experienced a break up or two. In my opinion, break ups are even harder at this age because every time you get on Facebook someone you know is getting engaged. It is nearly impossible not to wish you were that lucky girl and you can really start to beat yourself up if you’re dealing with a break up. I have a friend that is struggling to get over her last relationship and I would do just about anything to take her pain away. In trying to think of ways I could could help her get through this break up, I came up with 3 first steps that I believe will put any woman on the road to mending a broken heart and heading for the road to love.

Because of lack of time due to busy work schedules, most young professionals turn to applications such as Tinder, Happn, and VieLoco to meet other people. Cupid can now find your match even while you sleep! (more…)
Last week I was cruising some of my favorite blogs and came across a post about 10 Signs He’s Just Not Into You. I really wish I could remember where I saw it, but in looking at all the comments it seemed that a lot of women could sympathize with the author and reported experiencing numerous of these signs. What I found kind of funny is that as I read the signs, I found myself mentally testifying that I had done them to many guys. We live in a society where it’s assumed that women are always seeking relationships and that when things go south it’s because the man did something wrong or he somehow held all the cards that determined how the relationship was going to go. The way I see it women are just as capable of controlling how the game goes and frankly we’re sometimes just not that into a guy. So ladies, sit back and prepare to laugh and guys take close notes as I reveal three clear signs that she’s just not that into you. (more…)
