TLT Tip: Never Say Never

Unless you’re Taylor Swift  and getting paid a shit ton of money to sing about never ever getting back together I highly recommend eliminating this and other extreme language (always, never, ever) from your vocab especially when you’re  dealing with the opposite sex. (1.) It’s a sure fire way to piss someone off and (2.) It is usually not a 100% true statement or accusation I mean lets be honest its common to use these words because we think it will help to prove a point during an argument. When in reality it probably just ends up making the person on the receiving end super mad. So try to make a conscious effort to not use these extreme words the next time you and the boy are having a ” lovers quarrel.” Do you find yourself using these words often?

B.A.D. Girl Tip: Realize Who is Worth It

Its human nature for people to f*ck up and it would be impossible for us to go through life without hurting someone we love at some point whether it was intentional or accidental. Some people think forgiveness is a sign of weakness and its not. It takes a strong individual to realize that the person who hurt them made a mistake and they deserve forgiveness and deserve to still be a part of your life. Some people are worth the suffering that comes along with being hurt while others don’t deserve a second thought. It’s up to YOU to realize who is and is not worth it. Thoughts? *image background is not my own*

B.A.D. Girl Tip: Love Yourself First

Being in a relationship is hard work and it is even harder if you aren’t confident in who you are as a woman. You need to be completely in love with yourself so that you can properly love your partner. You can’t fill in missing voids or solve your problems with a relationship. Love should be an addition to your life to make it complete, not the only solution.  xx Nicole 

Couple of The Month: Edita & Ahmed

SMB:  Firstly, tell us how you two met each other.  We both were on vacation back in 2004 at a resort in Egypt. He was there with friends for his uni break  and I was with my mum who  decided it was ok if I skipped school for a week in the horrid month of February.  It was in the hotel lobby where we first met each other. He made the first move to talk to me.  Can I just call out that it was right after the beach with sand in my hair and completely make-up-less!  SMB: Tell us about your first date!  E: It was out of this world! As soon as we met, it felt like we knew each other all along. We were talking so much and just discovering how many things we had in common.  SMB: Where did you go or what did you do on the date?  We literally went for a walk around the whole resort  where we were vacationing. We walked for miles, talked and laughed like …

In order for a guy to commit you need to make it a requirement for him or it won’t happen. What do you think of these “facts” about men? Truth?

B.A.D. Girl Tip: Let Your Man Be A Man

Being with a B.A.D. Girl isn’t easy. We are very independent and demand a lot from our partners, but it’s important to show we trust and appreciate them as the “man” in a relationship. As a woman who likes to be in control its nice to give that up and let someone else take the lead even if it’s for something small like picking out my entree at dinner. 😉 Thoughts? Are you a control freak?
