  • Count five things that your dog loves, and if they can't enjoy three of those things anymore, then it's clear your pet’s quality of life is dropping & it might be time :'(
  • If he only calls or texts after 10 at night, he's not interested in anything other than what's under your belt.
  • Staying with someone because "you don't want to hurt them" is a really shitty reason to stay.
  • If he erases his texts directly before handing you his phone, be suspicious.
  • If you're confused about if he likes you or not, TAKE THE DAMN INITIATIVE.
  • Parents aren't always right. They're just never "wrong."
  • An ex is an ex for a reason. Think about it.
  • Never be afraid to say "No."
  • Conversely, never be afraid to say "Yes."...
