“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” ~Hellen Keller

Let it be (B)eautiful:Madden NFL 11 just came out. Pick up a copy for your sweetie if football is his thang. Let it be (A)uthentic: Real love is not a diamond ring, a new Benz, or a mansion. Real love is a collision of 2 souls becoming one. It is a FEELING that is shared and cherished more than any possession in the world. Let it be (D)etermined to Last: Keep it 50/50! One person shouldn’t be doing all the work and putting in all the effort. It’s an equal partnership gals. Let it be known from the jump what you expect from your partner. If he starts slackin’ then you need to light the fire under his a$$ and remind him of his role.

“Maybe all men are a drug. Sometimes they bring you down and sometimes, like now, they get you so high.” ~SATC

Let it be (B)eautiful: Guys like to front like they are macho and tough, but for most of them when it come to being with their girl they love to be babied. So treating him like a toddler every now and then will have him swooning. ;-) Let is be (A)uthentic:  You should always make sure that YOU are being treated how you want and that you are happy. Relationships are hard work and not always a walk in the park. So its understandable that you guys experience a few lows. However, these lows should not outweigh or even come close to the amount of highs you experience. When you are truly happy life should  feel like you’re on Ecstasy practically every day… Let it be (D)etermined to Last: Don’t expect your man to be responsible for every anniversary and special occasion. Yes, we BAD girls love to be spoiled, but so does your guy.  Taking him out to do something he will genuinely enjoy or that he would maybe do with his boys instead …

“Trying to make someone fall in love with you is about as pointless as trying to control who you fall in love with.” ~Unknown

Let it be (B)eautiful: There is nothing better than feeling protected when you are with your guy. You should feel safe and know that if anything were to happen he would be there for you. On the flip side your man likes to know that he makes you feel protected. So let him know that! Let it be (A)uthentic: If a man tells you he doesn’t feel a certain way for you then believe him. There are guys you can have fun with and guys to be in love with and every guy you meet isn’t going to be THAT guy. Let it be (D)etermined to Last: Forcing a relationship to work is wasted energy. I think too many people are actually forcing marriages and that explains why our divorce rate is so high. If you don’t feel it 100% then it’s just not right.  I know its hard not to get nervous as you get older and more people around you are getting engaged, married, having babies, etc. If this doesn’t seem to be …

“I knew I loved you before I met you…” ~ Savage Garden

Let it be (B)eautiful: My boyfriend knows how to make me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world without any words ever being spoken. Let it be (A)uthentic: We dated back in high school and I wrote down the date and time he asked me to be his. The time was 10:20 pm. We got back together again in college and guess what time it was when he decided to ask the question? It was 10:20 am. No bull shit. Just fate. I am publishing this post at 10:20 am today. :) Let it be (D)etermined to Last: We keep eachother entertained. We communicate and LISTEN to each other and we are considerate of one another. I keep him informed of my plans and always in the loop of what is going on with me so he feels involved and his opinion appreciated. But most important, we are in Love. Happy Anniversary My Love! xOXo, Your B.A.D Girl

“When men and women are able to respect and accept their differences then love has a chance to blossom.” ~John Gray

Let it be (B)eautiful: Random kisses make my heart melt. There is nothing cuter then a soft kiss on the forehead, neck or… ;-) Let it be (A)uthentic: Communication is key in any relationship. However, when finding the right partner to share the rest of your life with it is beyond important that you are able to have a conversation with this person. Too many times do I see couples who can barely say more than a few words to one another. You and your partner should be able to talk about any and everything with ease. Let it be (D)etermined to Last: If you are in a serious relationship then I HIGHLY recommend you must read this book. It is so insightful to another level. Actually, EVERYONE should read this book.  It is a relationship bible. “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” by John Gray Ph.D. You probably have heard of it before I am sure. B.A.D Girl Song for your iPod: “Mars vs. Venus” – Usher

“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give you forever.” ~Noah – The Notebook

Let it Be (B)eautiful: I hope you all got to watch fireworks on the 4th with that special someone who makes you see fireworks. Let it Be (A)uthentic: “Say what you mean and mean what you say.” A real bitch will live by this statement and she will respect anyone who can dish it right back. In a relationship everything that comes out of your mouth should be something you believe in and something that you sincerely mean. Don say things just to say them if its not how you feel. Also you should always be able to express how you feel openly and honestly with your partner. Don’t hold back. Let it Be (D)etermined to Last: Make sure you compliment your partner at least once a day. If you don’t someone else will and the last thing you need is your significant other to realize that you DON’T ever give them compliments and  make them feel pretty/handsome etc. No matter how good looking someone may be it is ALWAYS nice to hear it from …

“For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.” ~ Judy Garland

Let it be (B)eautiful: Take your guy to see a movie, preferably a guy flick like “The A-Team.”  Try to actually get into it- action movies aren’t as bad as you may think. More importantly he will appreciate it. Let it be (A)uthentic: Real love is more than just physical. There is an emotional as well as a mental connection. The two of you should feel connected and your relationship shouldn’t be based solely on great sexual chemistry. That chemistry will fizzle out if there is nothing deeper supporting it. Let it be (D)etermined to Last: Every person I have ever met with a long-lasting relationship has said the same thing to me “I just knew.” When you find that right person you will feel it so strong that any doubts will be non-existent. It’s a feeling that can’t be put into words, but only summed up as “I just know.”  If you don’t know then it may be a no-go.

“Love is friendship set on fire.” ~Jeremy Taylor

Let it be (B)eautiful: My Boyfriend left me a cute lil note of encouragement in my gym bag the other day. I thought that was beyouuuteeefullll. :) Let it be (A)uthentic: It’s been said that friendships make the best romances. I think its important for you and your partner to have a solid friendship. You should be able to hang out and enjoy each others company just as you would with any other friend. Let it be (D)etermined to last: Take pictures, and lots of them! Capture the memories and even the every day moments. If you plan on being together for the long haul it will be so nice to have pics to look back on. It will also be really cool to have pics to show your future children one day. I love looking at pics of my parents when they were dating. :)

“I love his big ego” ~Beyonce

Let it be (B)eautiful: Your ego can be a big bitch sometimes. But when you really love someone your ego shouldn’t be a third person in the relationship. Haven’t you heard – Three is a crowd? Learn to drop it and just admit it when you are wrong. Let it be (A)uthentic: Being creative and original keeps your relationship exciting and fresh. When it comes to birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, special occasions, its your time to show just how much you love your partner.  Anyone can get your guy a ‘congratulations’ card for his new promotion- as his significant other your gift should be better! Buy him something personalized for his office/desk, put up cute signs around your home reading “Welcome home Mr. VP of Finance”, or dress up as a naughty assistant and tell him you are ready for your first assignment! Get creative! Let it be (D)etermined to last: As determined women we strive to be at our best and to get ahead in our careers. However, as a B.A.D girl we must not …

“Falling in love is so hard on the knees.” ~Aerosmith

Let it be (B)eautiful: I think it is adorable when a couples body language shows that they are completely in to each other. Resting your head on his shoulder, holding hands, crossing your legs over his while sitting on the train,or  rubbing each others back. These are simple little touches that aren’t too much to annoy the unhappy public, but enough to let people know you are in love. Let it be (A)uthentic:  Don’t go around snooping through his phone (that makes you look insecure). Don’t try to hack his facebook account. UNLESS of course you have probable cause to do so. TRUST that he is doing right by you and RESPECT his privacy. If you can’t do this then you probably shouldn’t be dating this guy. Let it be (D)etermined to Last: Get to know your partners family. Go out to lunch with his mom, take his little sister to a movie, or simply just engage them in conversation. Learn from them and create memories. After all they will be apart of your new …
