Women Express Emotions, Men Find Solutions

I was listening to a podcast recently (pretty sure it was Terrible, Thanks for Asking) that started talking about how men and women confront problems differently. It struck a chord with me because my boyfriend and I approach stress in 100% different ways - it often causes our little tiffs into bigger fights because of…

What I’ve Learned After 4 Years Of Being In A Relationship

Life is hard and relationships are an aspect of life - so they aren't always easy either. My boyfriend and I are celebrating 4 years together and if there's one thing I learned, it's that nothing is a constant. I wrote about how our 3rd year together had the theme of sticking together. I don't…
