Blogging is tough.
I am new to blogging, and my goal was to blog 2-3 times a week. But when you are writing really structured, photo-heavy blogs (travel guides, fashion analysis, etc), it is time consuming and hard to keep up. So, I took a bit of a breather.
But I’m back!
I wanted to write a blog about what’s running through my head lately. Probably my biggest current point of interest has to do with Red Pill Theory.
Oh my God, did she just say that?!
It feels like I have to give a disclaimer. Generally, Red Pill is unpopular, especially with women. The ESSENTIAL THING TO KNOW is that Red Pill Women is a bit of a different beast from The Red Pill. I don’t think there’s enough awareness of that.
So what are Red Pill Women?
Yesterday was the anniversary of my first time meeting my long-distance relationship boyfriend.
Since then, there have been many transatlantic flights, nine months spent together in England, thousands of hours on Skype, and one big decision:
We’re getting married.
I hadn’t really planned on announcing it yet – mainly because he hasn’t officially proposed. As with many long-distance relationships, the decision to get married happens a little differently. We weren’t together when we decided – we were on different continents. We’ve been talking about marriage for a long time, but we didn’t know when. I guess we can thank UK Visas and Immigration for answering that question for us. Because it’s so difficult to secure the unmarried partner visa, marriage is our best option. Besides, we knew it was coming eventually – and when you know, you know.
Still waiting for that ring, though… 💍😉
Being the anniversary of when we first met, I’m reflecting a lot on our relationship. Since we’re made it this far successfully, I want to share five tips that have helped us get here. Some of these are specific to LDRs, but some apply to all relationships!
1. Visit often
2. Communicate constantly
3. Don’t play games
4. Be honest
5. Talk about goals / plans
My first blog post was fashion-focused, but today, I’ll get a bit more into myself & one of the most important things to me: my relationship.
I am into my third year in a long-distance relationship. I know there are a lot of you out there sharing the same challenges. I was fortunate enough to spend nine months in England, living life with my
gorgeous, charming, infuriating cross between Gordon Ramsey and Paddington Bear ahem, partner – but until we work out a more permanent immigration solution, I am back in the United States.
Today, I’ll write the first of a six-part series: Lessons I’ve Learned from my Long-Distance Relationship
Lesson One: TOUGHEN UP, BUTTERCUP
According to researchers, up to 20% of the population qualifies as “highly sensitive.” I am definitely one of those people. What does it mean to be highly sensitive?
