    This is what they don’t tell you about relationships.

    It’s been a long time coming and it’s here. Humans, I finally got the opportunity to collaborate with the Humanity Boss herself, Nicole. … Selfies, matching socks, wallpapers or whatever! The stuff of dreams. The idea of a relationship has a lot of us imagining things and daydreaming till we start believing love songs. The truth is, relationships are beautiful. Who wouldn’t want to be pampered and given pet names or flaunted like the most precious gem on earth? But, relationships in all honesty aren’t sunshines all year, otherwise they’d be illegal or sanctioned or even turned into some form of edible. So here are the things they don’t tell…

    Why I’m single. Relate?

    I’ve been asked why I’m single a couple of times like it’s a handicap. ( Or maybe it is, I don’t know anymore). These are MY reasons, you could relate. Let’s jump right into it. I am tired Relationship are beautiful and all but I am tired. For now. I don’t have the energy to talk and try to build something from scratch only to feel void. I don’t think a relationship is what I need right now. And I don’t want to know a new person’s favorite color, what they’re doing every few minutes and definitely don’t have energy for you-hang-up arguments. I am broke Yes. I am broke…

Some people feel entitled in relationships to the point of acting like they have no families or friends. A boyfriend/girlfriend isn’t a meal ticket. Fair? An adoptionship is a malicious process whereby someone’s child assumes the parenting of another grown human , usually a girlfriend (if it’s a boyfriend that’s a tender) , from that person’s biological or legal parent or parents without knowing.

    It’s okay to cut them off

    Cutting off people is a taxing experience. There is an influx of memories when you’re about to do it, and there’s that small voice that says “They’ll change”. Ignore it, that’s the devil or the sound of reason leaving you . I’m here to tell you it’s fine to cut off certain people. You don’t feel bad for throwing out rotten tomatoes so why waste it here. ( I know the tomatoes cost you money that’s why throwing them might hurt, that’s what happens when you shake off something you were invested in). It’s only natural. So here’s why cutting off certain people is fine. Peace of mind Some people…

    7 Things you should consider before getting into a relationship

    Before you get in a relationship, there are a few things you need to consider. Relationships are not candycrush, pushing a few shades here and hints there won’t make anything sweet. Approach a relationship like choosing a course, or something as serious. I’m not here to preach, but if the gospel of relationship works, by all means pay attention to these things : Have  a checklist Before you jump in a relationship, establish your checklist. Vibes don’t pay the bills and looks certainly don’t mean good character. Have a list of things you need in a person, that way you set a standard for yourself. People are like a buffet,…

    Finally, a topic about the Committee

    After the male bestfriend and the female bestfriend of course,  the most hated group on earth is the committee. These are the people who make decisions for you.
