This is a very tasty post!
What “chocolate” is your man?

Milk Chocolate

This is the blonde hair, blue eyes, high school quarterback kind of guy. Milk chocolate is undeniably the most popular type of chocolate out there. We all think of the classic Hershey’s bar when craving milk chocolate. This guy is the one every girl wants to date and drools over. They wish he would just pick her to stumble upon and ask her to prom. If you’ve ever seen “She’s All That,” milk chocolate is Freddie Prinze Jr.—the most popular guy in school who we can’t stop staring at. We never break apart just one square of Hershey’s milk chocolate, cause we are left always coming back for more. We all want some of that milky perfection to stroke our lips and never leave.

Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate is the guy that mom and dad want you to date. According to just about a million different studies, dark…

21 Problems With Dating In Your 20s

21 problems listed here, but I know there are more. In the end, we must consider that all problems have their own solutions, and you just have to find it. If you can’t do it alone, at least find ways with your partner. :)

1. No one is making the same amount of money, and it’s kind of awkward to ask, but the whole question of “what kind of dates can we go on and how should we pay for them and is something like a trip ever an option” eventually has to be addressed.

2. Everyone has a different version of what an actual relationship means, and no one needs to make any compromises for anyone else.

3. Most people can’t even envision themselves getting married or having kids until at least 30, and if you want those things earlier, you’re a little bit shit out of luck. (Except for the Christian kids who got married right out of college, but they don’t count.)

4. With online dating, there are always a million people to choose from and you’re never sure if one of you is just going to get bored and look…

You Should Fall In Love With Them A Second Time

This is a great read, especially to those teens that are actually wanting to be refreshed from the emotional stress of their relationships. :)

Thought Catalog

Relationships always have problems. I don’t think I’ve ever had any relationship, friendship or otherwise, that was 100% problem free. Either my own problems, or my friend or boyfriend’s problems, and how all those issues end up impacting the relationship. In a way, it’s sort of what you sign up for when you get into a new relationship. You’re basically saying, “You’re an amazing person and I’m willing to accept all of your baggage.” Yes yes: I know we have to draw a line in the sand somewhere, at least where other people’s baggage is concerned, but we ALL have baggage and things that make us feel insecure. The sooner we realize and understand that, the better our relationships might turn out.

Are we breaking up too soon? When we break up with someone, or think we want to break up with them anyway, are we making a rash decision?…

Befriending the Evil Inside Me..

What if everyone believes that your the kindest person they’ve ever met? How will you let them see your rage when anger strikes you? That’s really difficult, right? Well, there are times that you don’t have to fool yourself and you have to release your real feelings. You might damage yourself when you keep your depression and all those hurt feelings inside. Sometimes, it’s better to befriend the evil inside you. But the question is, HOW?

Teens have this instinct that they have to be perfect in front of everyone. Eventually, some of them end up being the person they never were. They’re pretending to be somebody else just to please everyone.  Some of them are deprived of the freedom of showing who they really are and were confined in the thought that they MUST be what the society wants them to be.

I met one girl in a forum and she’s one of those teens out there that’s looking for freedom. I admire her strength as she tells the story of what she has been through. I’ll share them to you, not to make gossips, but to encourage everyone to be true to themselves.

She was 14 when she started serving as a volunteer in her church group. She’s enjoying her task as a youth assistant and was trying her best to be one of the role models for the kids that she’s handling. Aside from her task in assisting the youth activities, she also volunteered to be a teacher for the kids.

It was until she was accused of something that she has never done. She wanted to burst what she feels but she was afraid that her actions can affect how the whole church thinks about her. She’s known to be a very gentle girl and when she start yelling and defending herself, their impression about her will be ruined. She just sit there quietly, just listening to the thoughts that slowly kills her and breaks her heart.

Since she didn’t have the chance to defend herself, she feels like most of the people are mocking her. She developed this insecurity that kept her in her shell again. She became a loner since she thinks that everyone doesn’t want to mingle with her. She started to space out until her presence can’t be noticed anymore. Her happy and free life was destroyed with all the hurt feelings that she just hid inside. Those that are never said out loud.

She suffered a lot, and she admitted that she escaped from the problem that she had. She left their place and traveled far away, so that no one can notice her. She started living away from her family and friends, just to make sure that they won’t see the depression that’s killing her slowly.

Though she’s facing the challenge all by herself, I guess it’s not right to be one of those people that are dealing with the pain of being spaced out. I know how hard it is to deal with the emotions and no one has to suffer that again.

When you’re true to yourself, it doesn’t mean that you’ll be a lot careless and a lot rude. You just have to accept that you still have a voice for a certain issue and you don’t have to hide your true feelings. If you’re angry, go tell them. But I’m not really telling you to be as violent as possible. :D

There will be a time that you have to show the evil side of you so that people can accept you for who you really are. As a matter of fact, you have to befriend the evil inside of you so you can actually have the courage and the confidence to face all the challenges in your life. Though we can move on and heal the pain, it’s better not to start having it at all..
