Boys Want Sex and Girls Want Love: A Look Into Relationships

I didn't really realise how sex driven boys are in the dating game until I had a few interactions that left me laughing, sending screenshots to my pals and scratching my head. Did I assume incorrectly when I thought there was a 'get to know me' period before jumping right into questions like 'what's your favourite position?' Did I miss something?
I also didn't realise how many girls go looking for relationships to fill a void that at some point had been carved out and left empty... *Starts playing Daddy Issues by Demi Lovato

There seems to be a massive chasm between the two genders and what we're both really desiring when it comes to intimate relationships. With toxic dating apps for quick hook ups and Urban Dictionary slang like 'Netflix and chill' the dating pool seems to be getting murkier and more disgusting as the days go by.

It seems to me that boys toy with the idea of love so that they can get to sex and girls do the same but vice versa. Everyone is trying to meet their needs in every moment of everyday, that's why we justify things or make excuses because it offers us a sense of relief, something we all seem to be needing in a world that offers what feels like no mercy. Let me tell you straight up, you will NOT get your needs met by someone else if you cannot meet your own.

If you do not know why you want a relationship with a partner you should probably not be trying to enter into one. If you are not aware of your own triggers, your ego, your internal dialogue and what your deep needs/wants are every single attempt is going to be unsatisfying and a good chance toxic. So it is absolute key that you know and love yourself before you expect for someone to do it to you or you to them.
I'd say yes, is getting harder and harder to genuinely get to know someone let alone fall in love with them as people are building walls higher and higher to keep any hurt out. In doing so we also keep all the goodness and sunlight out too. You are not immune to getting hurt or triggered, it happens, but it's how you choose to be with them in that moment. Do you push them away and disown that part of yourself or do you draw it in and embrace it?
Being comfortable in your own unhappiness and misery is a choice just like living a life full of love and heart centered connection is too.

Both genders need to heal and get in touch with the feminine and masculine aspects of themselves and each other. What is it that you are trying to get from the other that you've never been able to receive and can you learn to give it to yourself first? A relationship where both parties are aware of their darkest aspects and are in an open state to bring those forth and transcend beyond them is a motherfuckin' force to be reckoned with.

It all starts with you,

So This Is What An Emotional Breakdown Feels Like

I understand that some days feeling good doesn't come so easy and for me that has been the past few. We hit turbulence or the hill up ahead has turned into a mountain and your little car isn't going to hike it up there without the help of Tom Cruise in a helicopter (my point is you can't do it alone and you need some help, think what you will about Mr Blockbuster. I know he's a controversial subject but what else do you expect on this blog?).
Rarely does a wave of such intense heart pain and exhaustion hit me like it has the past couple of days and as much as it has been draining of course I see the light in it all. When the whole world feels as if it's coming crashing down (and it is crashing and burning and crashing) doing the daily do's can be so much more monumental and harder than normal. Like having a shower? I don't know what that is.
Don't beat yourself up for falling of the horse and letting your house internally and externally get messy for a…

Wake Up Calls: Why They Manifest and My Ugliest One Yet

Wake up calls come in all different shapes and sizes but most of the time they are pretty ugly and can hurt like hell. I had a major one this year, definitely the biggest one I've experienced yet, and I'd say was very similar to being stabbed in the eye with a hot poker but I am very grateful that I wasn't actually stabbed, my butt was just kicked into the highest gear possible as a result.
I want to fill you in on the whole backstory so you can really see how every step I took lead up to this defining moment when everything I thought I had 'built' came crashing down... and thank Jesus, Mary and Joseph for that.
After getting heavily into the whole fitness world I decided that this year I would complete the qualifications so I could work as a 'fitness professional' in the industry. It seemed a solid and stable plan that would lead to a full-time job and as a girl who just wants to stretch her wings and fly it seemed like a easy way to help make that happe…

Nothing Turns Me On Like Good Aesthetics Do: My Favourites

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
So often the little things go unseen and overlooked but without these forgotten tiny miracles the world would be pretty damn lackluster. I personally seek the little precious moments that you could melt into and hold onto forever, they keep me optimistic and make me feel infinite in a dimension that feels a little too physically restrictive for my liking. How someone notices, views, feels these moments speaks volumes when it comes to knowing how in tune or out of touch they are with source energy. Right now I want to bring your attention back to the little things so you can stay more aware and open to them throughout your day. It is a constant reminder to look up and watch the clouds when you've kept your eyes on the ground for so long but it is worth it because missing out on such magic would be the deepest of tragedies.

Here is a list of some of my favourite little things using your very basic but priceless five senses smell, sound, sight, touch an…
