“Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.” ~ Antoine de Saint

Let it be (B)eautiful: When you visit your partners family for the first time always try to bring something, even if its small. If your partner is of a different ethnic background  it would be nice to bring a treat or dish that is typical from where your family is from. You want to bring a piece of you into their home. Let it be (A)uthentic: Your mistakes from past relationships should never be repeated. They happened during the practice round. Now that you are in the real thing you want to make sure you play the game right. So take those lessons you learned and apply them to your current situation. Remember how you and your ex partner felt and work to avoid those feelings again now. Let it be (D)etermined to Last: You and your partner should be on the same page when it comes to plans of living together, marriage, kids, a dog, buying a house, whatever.  If your partner is dead set on NOT having a child and you want nothing …

Love is like war, Easy to begin but hard to end. ~ Anonymous

Let it be (B)eautiful: When you are having a rough day or a moment of stress or pain your partner should be the one to relax you and remind you of all that you have going for yourself. Let it be (A)uthentic: You gotta have passion. If you aren’t passionate and willing to fight for your relationship than why are you even in it? Let it be (D)etermined to Last: I like today’s quote, but I don’t think it should be taken at face value. There are many times where people remain in unhealthy relationships b/c of “love”.  When love hurts, all the time, or at least more than half of the time, guess what? It isn’t love. Get the hell out. BAD girls do not tolerate being put down, taken advantage of or disrespected. Realize that you are special, you’re a BAD b$tch and no man will ever play you out!

“True love never lives happily ever after – true love has no ending.” ~ K. Knight

Let it Be (B)eautiful: How cute is it when just hearing your partners name can bring a smile to your face.  L O V E. Let it Be (A)uthentic: If a guy is trying really hard to impress you it is because he is already impressed by YOU. He is aiming to put his best foot forward in order to get you to find him attractive, funny, and likable.  So, this pretty much means the ball is in your court. Relax and enjoy the show. 😉 Let it Be (D)etermined to Last: True love always lives on even after the couple has passed. Their love will live on in the hearts of those they have touched. Their love can be found in their children, grandchildren, family, friends, and even strangers. As a couple in love, REAL love, you never know whose life  you may be touching. Sometimes all it takes is for someone to see that real love does exist to give them that much-needed hope. ❤

“You learn to like someone when you find out what makes them laugh, but you can never truly love someone until you find out what makes them cry.” ~Author Unknown

Let it be (B)eautiful: “Not Gon Cry” by Mary J. Blige coincidentally is playing as I type up this post. This is a great song to listen to when you the need the strength to move forward. Music seriously helps heal wounds. Let it be (A)uthentic: I don’t think tears are a sign of vulnerability or weakness. When someone sheds a few tears it could be for so many other reasons like feeling  joy, happiness, sentiment, inspiration, overwhelmed, or if something simply touches their heart.  When you find out what can cause someone to feel the need to cry it opens you up into their soul. It allows you to see the type of person they are and what really means a lot to them. Let it be (D)etermined to Last: Men have been raised to think crying is strictly for women (total bull sh!t). If your man is in need of a good cry don’t make it uncomfortable for him. The last thing he needs is his girl friend talking sh!t about it. There …

“Sometimes I wish that I was the weather, you’d bring me up in conversation forever. And when it rained, I’d be the talk of the day.” ~John Mayer

Let it be (B)eautiful: I find it really adorable when a person includes their significant other in conversation even when they are not around. Instead of saying “On rainy days I usually like to stay home and watch re-runs of ‘The King of Queens’ – they would say ‘On rainy days Joe and I like to stay home and watch re-runs’..” It shows a true partnership and pride in your relationship. Let it be (A)uthentic: It is important that we learn to understand where others are coming from and why they feel the way they do as long as they have a valid argument to back it up. BAD girls don’t support an argument made just for argument’s sake. If someone is trying to combat you just so they can TRY and prove you wrong then you need to let them know it’s not happening. If you genuinely can’t see where someone is coming from because they have no substantial claim or evidence then its up to you to stand your ground. Tell them their …

“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.
