A Relationship Wilderness Test

Jump!

My husband and I are spending our first year of marriage traveling the world.  A twelve-month honeymoon, of sorts…

Taking a trip like this with another person means you have to trust and love them – even when their breath smells and their underwear is dirty. Because you have been on a bus for 30 hours together and are covered head to toe in bug bites, you realize that the superficial stuff just doesn’t matter.

Head to the Beach!

Girls on Surfboards

If you’re anything like everyone else on the planet, you don’t enjoy getting dumped – especially when you moved all the way to Mexico for your boyfriend. But even more depressing is staying home in “Dumpsville”, wallowing in Ben & Jerry’s (and self pity) and watching Pretty Woman. What happened to being a strong independent woman?  I need Kelly Clarkson to tell me where can I find her again.

The honest answer is you probably won’t find her at home, moping around in your boyfriend’s old t-shirts surrounded by the artifacts of your relationship. Instead, get out of town for a few days – change your underwear and change the scenery.  No one can say you don’t deserve a getaway!

I certainly needed one after my recent break-up, and what better place to distract myself from all the tears in my beer than at the beach.  It is almost impossible to be unhappy when you’re covered in Hawaiian Tropic.  Here are a few other reasons why you should celebrate your single status at the beach: AFTER THE JUMP!

Turtle Love

If you were a young girl growing up in the 80’s, like me you probably had a little crush on a boy band – juuuust maybe not the same one.  I fell hard for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (you can imagine how popular that made me).  But now I have a scientific theory about that crush that I think may explain much about modern love.  (Okay, maybe not scientific, but I definitely made a lot of doodles about it in my Trapper Keeper.) …SO IT GOES LIKE THIS…AFTER THE JUMP!

The History of Men Moving On

It’s springtime, folks, and that means the end of cuffing season! Time to ditch the paramours who refused to commit this winter for the promise of fresh summer flings. Only you can decide whether to approach this new season of opportunity with giddy optimism or over a gallon of ice cream.

The one thing we know for sure is that CDZA’s “History of Men Moving On” is the perfect soundtrack for cutting ties this spring.  CHECK IT OUT AFTER THE JUMP!
