“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 …

“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 …

“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 …
