arynkyle: We had a hurricane a couple months ago—you might have heard about it. Turned out to be a bit of a non-event, this hurricane. At least in New York. But the day-or-so leading up to it? Total shit-storm. Originally, I had plans to spend Hurricane Night with friends in Brooklyn, but as the hullabaloo about taped windows and bottled water and “go bags” grew in intensity, my friends...

jessimarquez: The best dating advice I could ever give. Stop dating imaginary people. Period. I know, I know this sounds like a huge revelation - the truth remains - half the people reading this blog are dating a person in their head that isn’t real. I did it myself. I have a picture…

The Seventh Story →
goodwomenproject: By @EvanDunnPoet I used to be that guy who would argue that this world has really gotten better, that women – at least in this country – are equal, and sure, there are a few remaining inequalities but women even have a few advantages over men. And then I heard the statistics, but that wasn’t what changed my mind. This is more of a big-picture issue than a bunch of numbers or...
The Friend Zone: It’s Not Just for Men →
goodmenproject: The Friend Zone exists, and it’s not just something women do to men, Neil Sheppard reports. “I know, because I’ve done it. When confident, social people get stuck in this situation, they cut their losses and move on. When lonely, isolated, awkward people get stuck in the Friend Zone, however, it can hit them hard. I really liked this graf: There’s been a lot of angry words...
It is a safe thing to trust Him to fulfill the desires which He creates.– Amy Carmichael (via definedbyyou) Werd.
Becoming Us →
When I got married, I lost everything. It sounds strange to say that, and I’ve hesitated using those words for a long time. I wanted to protect my husband, who has bent over backwards to love me and invite me into his life and give me the things I’ve always wanted. And there’s already so much fear of marriage for my generation — I didn’t have the heart to add to it. I wanted to be one of...

Afterward (and with a heavy heart), I enrolled in a computer course at a nearby community college. At a time when employment trumped all other considerations, it seemed that only a knowledge of computers could quickly make me employable. For the days that followed, I descended into malaise. My wife, noticing my unusual demeanor, discovered a schedule of classes tucked in my bag. She made no...

Just Call Her: If You Say You’re ____, You’re... →
justcallher: “I’m funny.” “I’m smart.” “I make a lot of money.” “I got abs. You want to see?” Really? Really. Some guys actually say these things on first dates. And they wonder why they fail. Fellas, if you have to say you are something, the chances are you’re probably not. I never heard anyone who’s…
So, I Waited For Him To Tell Me He Liked Me First. →
goodwomenproject: I thought having a guy for a best friend was the best idea I’ve ever had. It’s not even that I thought girls were annoying or caddy. I had plenty of great girlfriends, but I didn’t want them as best friends. I wanted him. One simple visit to see me at work turned into texting, calling, hanging out in groups, and before you knew it we were inseparable. After several months of...

coffeemeetsbagel: I guess you could say it was a hectic weekend— after all, I did get four different phone numbers from four different people in two very different cities. The Experiment: There are four single gals working at Coffee Meets Bagel and you know what that means -most of our noons are spent… interesting, especially as a nyc native who enjoyed her visit to sf.

Strive for trust and stability, not excitement and adventure. That’s not to say you won’t have the latter. You will. But adventure and excitement are the reward you get for first achieving trust and stability.
