What do I do if I'm crushing on my bf? 

What do I do when I’m crushing on my best friend? 

It happens all the time! One minute you’re just friends, goofing around, and the next minute it’s like you’re seeing him or her for the first time. (For me it was always: “Those eyes! How have I never noticed those eyes before?!”) 

I’m a huge fan of having good friends of the opposite gender. I think it adds much perspective on life, and helps us learn more about ourselves. But these friendships do come with this difficulty: 

It’s really easy to start to…

Signs of a Bad Relationship 

Wondering if the person you’re dating is a good fit for you?

Hey girls, my name is Tiffany, and in this video I share my own story of a really bad dating relationship. And I mean bad. This boyfriend literally told me, “I’m having a hard time falling in love with you because my ex-girlfriend is a ten [on the beauty scale] and you’re just not that attractive to me.”  
  
It seems obvious that I should have dumped him immediately, right? The only problem was, by the time I stopped making excuses for my boyfriend…

How do I know if someone is THE ONE? 

THE VIDEO BLOG:


THE WRITTEN PART:

That question tormented me all through high school…and college…and my twenties. 

  • “What if I miss him?” 
  • “What if I marry the wrong person?” 
  • “What if I never meet ‘the one’?” 

And then it would all come back around to: “How do I know if someone is ‘the one’?” 

I’m not even going to pretend to know the answer to that question. I may be married, but that “knowing” still feels very much a mystery. 

However, I do want to share the things that made me feel…

You're Worth Waiting For (guest post) 

Let me introduce you to my friend Rayni. We met via the blogger world, and then actually grabbed coffee together this spring, while I was in her neck of the woods: beautiful San Diego, CA! She is seriously the sweetest person ever, and I had to ask her to share some of her wisdom in a guest post. Without further ado…Rayni Peavy!

I didn’t date a lot as a teen or young adult. Sure, I went on some dates and there were always guys I was interested in. But for the most part the guys I liked didn’t like me back;

Giving God the Glory in Your Love Story (guest post) 

Let me introduce to you a new friend. I met up with Jen in a Cheesecake Factory during tour earlier this year. Hearing a little bit of her story, and the life that bubbles out of her, I asked her to write part of her story as a resource to encourage any of you who are single right now! 

Let me let you in on a (now) typical morning in my house.

I begin writing to you before the sun is up, with kids music playing on my iPhone, a telling patch of spit-up on my sweater, and more than likely some noticeable…

What Women Need to Know (guest post) 

What Women need to know about finding and keeping a man’s attention:  
by Rick P.

 

The problem with *striving* to keep a guy’s attention is that it’s completely wasted time and energy.  Think of relationships as being like two people in a canoe together; if one is just splashing a stick around while the other intently paddles on their side of the boat, the canoe goes in circles and you’ll just spend your time baling out water before sinking.  But if you wait for someone who’s eager to paddle along with…
