Trust me, I know it is tempting to continue following your ex on social media post-breakup. You want to keep tabs on him, see how he is dealing with the breakup, and how quickly he gets over you. Let me tell you, girl, it isn’t healthy. Here are 3 reasons you should unfriend your ex.

  1. It is hurting more than it is helping: Sometimes, seeing that your ex hasn’t unfriended you after a breakup can make you think that there is hope of you two getting back together. It can also prevent you from moving on. Seeing that ex and what they are up to can make you miss them and forget the reasons you broke up in the first place. It can also tempt you into trying to contact them and get back together. Unfriend them so that you can move on to bigger and better things!unfriend
  2. You won’t compare yourself: Being able to see what they are up to and who they are starting to date hurts. By unfriending them you are preventing yourself from the hurt that comes from comparing yourself to their new boo. It is easy to wonder who is doing better right now, you or him. Did they start dating someone new and you are still single? Did they get a better job than you have? Who cares what they are doing. And who cares who they moved on to. Don’t compare yourself to their new love interest. Your life is just as amazing as theirs, and you are just as great of a person as their new boo, so deleting them allows you to enjoy the ups and downs of your own life.
  3. You will be more of a mystery: If you want to seem like more of a mystery, and like you have moved on to better things, deleting your ex is a great idea. They won’t have access to your profiles and can’t see how you are doing, so they will become curious. If you are friends with them, all they have to do is pull up your profile to see how you are. If you aren’t friends, they actually have to reach out and ask you. If you are wanting to re-connect with them, this is the best way to do so!

Clicking that “unfriend” button is one of the best things you can do for yourself!

What Godly Guys Look For In A Gal

Okay gals, how many of us sit and daydream about our perfect guy? Most of us talk about what our prince charming is like to our girlfriends and gush about meeting him one day. If you are like me, you even have a list of what your perfect guy is like, from personality to physical traits. Do you ever wonder if guys do this too? Make lists of what they want their future Mrs. Right to be like? If so, do we measure up to that list? Well, I wanted an answer, so I consulted one of my Christian guy friends. Here is a guy’s perspective of what they look for in a gal. He says:FullSizeRender (83)

Guys’ minds really don’t operate the same as girls (surprise surprise!). In fact, most guys don’t really know what they want until they’ve found it. Now, I can’t speak for all guys when I say that, but among my Christian guy friends, there are 2 things we look for: if there is a spark between us, and if she loves God. We want a connection that gives us butterflies, just like you do. We want to be attracted to them both on the surface, and to what is in their hearts. We want to be able to hold a deep, intelligent conversation, but also have fun and goof off. Each guy is different in what they look for as far as a “spark”. Like I said before, us Christian guys also want a woman who is chasing after God and seeks His wisdom in her life. We want someone who cares for others and who inspires girls around her. But, like we said, we don’t really 100% know exactly what we want until we actually find it! Here is the most important thing: stop trying to be someone you think guys will like and be who you want to be, because the right guy will like exactly who you are.

Well said! Sometimes your guy friends can be a great source of wisdom, am I right?

Breakups can really shake your life up. They can make you depressed and can make you look at relationships in a totally new way. They can also make you feel like you need change in your life to help you move forward. Sometimes, a fresh start is just what you need after a breakup. It can make you feel powerful and like you have control! Here are a few things to change after a breakup to help you move forward.

  1. Outlook and attitude: After the chaos of a breakup, it is a good idea to evaluate how your outlook on life and love has changed. Breakups often make us want to make changes for the better and focus on improving ourselves. Make the best of your situation and use this time to get to know yourself.
  2. Hair: This one is a pretty common change people make after a breakup, and with good reason! A fresh new hair cut for a fresh new you. Did your ex ever tell you not to dye your hair blond even though you really wanted to? Dye those locks blonde, girl! No more holding back! You will feel strong, independent, and beautiful with a fresh new ‘do.images (1)
  3. Music: Did your bf like a certain type of music? Did you change your taste in music to fit with his? Time to find new music for the new you. Create a new soundtrack for your life!
  4. Style: If you dressed a certain way to impress your boyfriend or he didn’t like certain things you wore, no need to worry about that anymore! Now you can dress however you please. Did he hate red lipstick? Wear it proudly! Try new styles, you may find a new fav!
  5. Relationship outlook: Use this time to think about what you want in your next relationship. What did you like and dislike about your ex? What will you do differently the next time around?

Breakups are a great opportunity to learn more about yourself and focus on the “new you”.

Dating Etiquette 101

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, first dates are scary business. You are putting yourself out there, and even though you have probably texted them a bunch or chatted with them in person, your first date is a totally different ball field. It is all about making a good impression and keeping your wits about you. Dating etiquette is much more than saying please and thank you and putting your napkin on your lap during dinner. Here are the basics on everything you need to know about dating etiquette to help you make a fab impression on your date.

Be on time: Please please pleeeease. There is no bigger annoyance than a late date. Be respectful and be on time, don’t keep them waiting! If you are running behind, text them and keep them updated on your status.IMG_3938

Put your phone away: Unless there is a big family emergency that requires you have your phone handy, put it away. Your friends will understand if you respond to their text in a few hours instead of right away. When you have your phone out during a date it gives off the message that they aren’t your main focus and they aren’t as important as what is going on on your phone.

Make eye contact: Giving someone eye contact lets them know you are interested in what they have to say and shows them respect. If you avoid eye contact they may think you are bored or aren’t into them.

Be attentive and ask questions: Really listen to what they have to say and try to give them your input. Also, ask them questions to keep the dialogue going. Feedback shows them that you’re really listening and want to hear what they have to say.

Manners are hard to come by these days, so when you show that you have good ones, you will be even more of a total catch! Plus, it will most likely knock the socks off of your date.

Some of my close girl friends are in a tizzy right now. They are panicking because they have no idea what to get their dudes for Christmas! Have no fear, Chels is here! I have 3 gifts that will warm any boy’s heart.

  1. 1 month of planned date nights: You know that horrible conversation you have with your BF before date night? The one that goes “what do you want to do?” “I don’t know…what do you want to do?” This gift saves you that convo! Have a bunch of date ideas written out on slips of paper, then fold them up and put them in a jar. This is a gift you will both enjoy!7-candy-bar-saying-ideas
  2. His favorite candy or a candy card: The way to a boy’s heart is food. Get him a mixture of his favorite candies all wrapped up super cute, or make him a creative card using candy like this one! He will laugh at your “sweetness”. 😉
  3. I like you because…”: Boys love to be complimented, just like girls! Maybe even more! They love to hear all the things you like about them. It lets them know how much you value them and appreciate them. Write things you like about them on slips of paper and put them in a jar for him to read when he needs a little pick-me-up. You can write anything you want, he will appreciate your thoughtfulness. It can be something as small as “you have the cutest smile”.

Hopefully I have helped you come up with a great gift idea for your handsome hunk!

XOXO, Chels
