BAD Girl Love Lessons

Relationships are tough and I am constantly learning about myself and about dealing with others. Here are 3 lessons I learned in 2011 that I want to learn from and work on in 2012. 1.  Complain Less I catch myself being a bit more annoying than I would like and luckily I am women enough to notice and admit it. 2. Be Okay With Being Wrong This is a tough one, especially for us B.A.D girls, right?! I am learning to accept when I am 100% wrong and just shut my mouth. 3. Live in the Present I will be honest at times I have resorted to digging up past bull shit and bringing it to life again. Though I do not do it often I want to eliminate it completely. Holding on to negativity from the past only hinders future growth. What are some love lessons you experienced this past year?

5 Things You Should Not Stop Doing

1. Going out with your friends. It’s so important not to lose yourself in your relationship. Make sure you both are spending time apart and enjoying time with your respective crews. 2. Don’t stop laughing at his jokes. This shouldn’t be hard to do. If you were faking it just to make him happy in the beginning  than you better keep up the act! 3. Keep your personal issues between the two of you. Its best to wait until you are both back home to talk to him about how he kept cutting you off at dinner. 4. Oral. It must be done whether you love it or hate it. And if you hate it well than you better get to loving it and make sure he returns the favor of course. 5. Boosting his Ego. Some girl just checked him out? Tell him about it.  He’s gotta know he’s still got it after being wifed up for so long. Thoughts?

5 Things Girls do on Facebook that Guys HATE.

1. Be all up in their Business. Snooping through a guys Facebook page for dirt is so lame, especially if you go around questioning past history via wall to wall. 2. The Photo Album Titled: ME Constantly posting pics of yourself that you are clearly sitting around and taking on your free time makes guys think you are either way too into yourself or  just desperately seeking attention. 3.  Write Something…. Men Suck. They All do. Posting the ever popular yet annoying anti-male status update makes you look immature and most guys find it to be a major turn off. 4.  Facebook Addicts Anonymous Men like mystery, you have to keep them guessing not fully informed on your whereabouts and entire life story via Facebook. 5.  Relationship Status: It’s Complicated. Harrassing your new guy to change his relationship status on Facebook is mega annoying. It might be a red flag for you if he is hesitant to do so, but I personally believe you should be dating for at least 6 months before anything goes public on Facebook.  Save yourself …

Couple of The Month: Amanda ♥ DC

♥ Her: Amanda Allison ♥ Age: 25 ♥ Spreads Love in: CA ♥ Zodiac: Leo/Virgo ♥ Him: DC ♥ Age: 24 ♥ Spreads Love in: CA ♥ Zodiac: Leo In Love Since: Feb. 14th, 2♥♥6 ♥ How They Met: Amanda: We met through MySpace, LOL. He randomly found me online, read my profile, and sent me a message. We e-mailed and talked on the phone for about four months before I got the courage to meet him in person. He spent the entire day making me a present (a home-made card and a heart filled with red skittles, my favorite candy at the time), only to have me spill it all over my car seats later that night. Oops. ♥ How was your first date? DC: Awesome.  We went to a park in the city, where I surprised Mandy with a picnic. The weather was perfect, too. There was a clear, blue sky and gentle, cool breeze that felt good on the skin. We ate in the middle of a field and laid on a blanket holding hands for a …

{Letter #1} Dear Future Hubby,

Loving a B.A.D Girl isn’t easy, we demand a lot, but only because we KNOW what we deserve and we don’t ever settle. Here are a few  things about me I want to share with you: 1. I am not a morning person and after 20 some odd years it looks like shit isn’t changing anytime soon. 2. I make slamming baked ziti! 3. I love random acts of affection. Kiss me on my forehead; tell me I am pretty while I discuss my day with you. 4. Breakfast sandwiches make me VERY happy. 5. I don’t dress up for male attention. So when you see me looking good don’t get mad just be happy to call me yours.    I think that’s all for now! 😉 xXO, Your BAD Girl

Love Jams Playlist: “Like a Star” by Corrine Bailey Rae

This is one of my favorite love songs that my bestie put me on to a few years ago. Its an oldie, but a goodie. I absolutely love Corrine’s voice and the words of this song really resonate with me. It’s so damn smooth.  Sit back, relax and enjoy.   “You’ve got this look I can’t describe, You make me feel like I’m alive, When everything else is a fade, Without a doubt you’re on my side, Heaven has been away too long, Can’t find the words to write this song, Oh… Your love “ What do you think? Have you heard this song before? Diggin’ it?

Be (B)eautiful: I strongly believe that the day you stop dreaming is the day you stop living. Be (A)uthentic: I absolutely love this article:  10 Ways to Be the Person You Wanted to Be as a Kid Be (D)etermined: If you aren’t happy with your outfit you change it. If going to a club isn’t your ideal Friday night then you make other plans. So what do you do when your current relationship isn’t what you want? You make a change that’s what! Evaluate your relationship. Is it you, your partner or your current situation that is making things difficult? Figure it out and fix it. Approach relationships the same way you handle everyday life. If it’s not making you happy, is it really worth it?

Help someone remain a survivor, support TWLOHA and always be your own biggest fan.

Be (B)eautiful: This past Saturday was the 12th annual National Survivors of Suicide Day. The day represents a time for people who have lost loved ones to suicide to come together and find healing. My love goes out to anyone who has ever lost someone because of suicide. I recently had a classmate from High school commit suicide this year. It’s important that you be as supportive and understanding of those people in your life. You never know what someone may be going through and really need someone to just listen to them. I just purchased this tee-shirt to support the non-profit organization To Write Love on Her Arms. TWLOHA is dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide.  They are a positive movement to help support, inspire, inform and encourage those who need it most. Visit their website HERE.

“You can have my heart or we can share it like the last slice.” ~Drake

Let it be (B)eautiful: Your true home is with the person that you love. You should feel most comfortable and at ease with that person by your side no matter where you both may be physically at the moment. Let it be (A)uthentic: Long distance relationships can be tough, I know this from experience. But if you love someone more than anything, then distance only matters to the mind, not to the heart. Let it be (D)etermined to Last: If you are a foodie like me then I bet you enjoy your meal right down to the last morsel.  However, when you love someone you should be willing to share your last bite so they can enjoy too. This can also be applied to other things like sharing personal space, time, the TV, ideas, pillows, etc. Sharing is sexy. 😉
