* Do You *

I kinda love this... a lot.



Ariel has always been my favorite princess.
She's always been different in her own way...





More than just wanting to find love, she yearned to belong in the world she had always dreamed of. And from that world she loved, she found love. That's the difference between Ariel and all the other princesses. SHE took the chance to pursue the life she wanted to live. That came first. The prince... after.

* Girl Code vs Girl Line *

Being a lady of this world, there are certain unspoken rules that should be understood and followed by our gender. Especially so when it comes to the fellas. No friendship should be ruined because of a guy so let's just get the obvious ones out in the open.



Girl Code: Between friends
Girl Line: Casual acquaintances (ie when your guy friend gains a girlfriend)


Girl Code: just like guy code, good girlfriends should already know these by heart. You have to be really oblivious or you honestly just don't care about your friend as much as you thought you did if you dare to break these codes.
  • Flirting/Dating an girlfriend's ex: Uh no. Just ... no. Don't ... no. I don't care how much time has passed or that they both moved on, don't go there! Yes there are of course exceptions but even then, I always think it's shady when a girlfriend hooks up with her close friend's ex. And you know how dating/hooking up even begins? With FLIRTING!! So don't even tempt yourself or him. He's not worth it.   

  • Being too close with her boyfriend: There's a boundary. Even if it's completely friendly, respect their relationship and your friendship
  • The guy that your girlfriend is into is completely off limits: You can be nice, but keep most topics with him about her. Your goal is to be the best wing woman to your friend. So you WING woman
  • ALWAYS and I mean ALWAYS be looking out for your friends when it comes to creepers: Whether it's at a club or a guy that she's dating, if he's a creeper and you know it... do something about it! If you don't, you honestly can't call yourself a true friend


Girl Line: this is a very thin thin line that should be tread cautiously. If you think you might be in endanger of even slightly stepping over that line, don't do it. Remember, if you want to keep your friendship with your guy friend, respect his girlfriend.


  • Girlfriend always comes first: Even if you had something planned with the guy friend and his girlfriend suddenly wants to do something with him, she ALWAYS gets priority. Yes there are exceptions but they are rare
  • Alone time: If you and your guy friend were once like peas in a pod before the girlfriend, it's time to graciously step aside. Don't make her feel threatened or that she has to compete with another girl for her boyfriend and his time

    • Long and/or late night phone calls: No more. Even if it's just to catch up. Keep them light and in the daytime until you are able to meet him in person for lunch or coffee. Texting should also be kept to a minimal 
    • No touchy touchy: Hugs are ok but there should be no reason at all why you're touching her boyfriend. Knudges, kisses on cheek, arm linking, arm over shoulder action... eh! Just keep your hands to yourself missy

    I totally understand wanting to keep the friendship you always/once had with your close guy friend but .. it's the girl line. I think of it as if it were my boyfriend, I would want the same courtesy from his girl friends as I would give now to my guy friends' girlfriends. A circle of mutual respect that goes round and round

    So let's all respect the girl code and girl line please. 


    Remember...

    * A Place In This World For Me *

    Wow the positive forum feedback that you guys/ladies gave here and on tumblr was so encouraging.

    I'm currently looking into/researching on how to get it all started.

    In the meantime... a tune from me to you <3
    This was my go-to song for a while whenever I needed a pick-me-up or an extra boost.
    Perhaps it can do the same for you..

    *DO IT FELLAS*

    I'm soo soo glad that flash mob proposals are happening!
    If you're going to ask your girlfriend to spend the rest of her life with you, that's definitely the way to get a yes.

    DO IT FELLAS!! 
    Bring the romantic grand gestures back to relationships!!




    LOVE
    <3


    *Online Sister*

    Too often I hear first hand or read about girls who feel sad or even depressed over the woes of growing up. Most times it entails a boy and others times it's about school, parents, appearance, friends or feeling simply like they don't fit in or belong anywhere.

    This honestly makes my heart ache for them. Because I remember how it felt being a teenage girl. It's definitely not easy and it can leave scars. I really wished at the time I had an older sister figure to ... just be there for me and understand. Moms can't always do that and friends can only give you so much insight because they're going through the same things you are.

    I've been seriously thinking about starting an online community support group for girls who just want someone to listen or talk to. Perhaps a forum is the way to go.

    Thoughts? Suggestions?




    [sidenote]: Remember what I said about the tugging in the deepest core of you? Well my inners have been tugging and nudging about this for years... I believe it's finally time to do something about it <3

    * I Wonder...*

    You know I've got another post in me tonight.



    If you couldn't tell already, I'm someone who wonders about love all the time. I've always been curious (perhaps) because I've never truly experienced it. I observe. I ask. I daydream. But I've never quite figured it out.

    I rely on optimism to keep me hopeful. To keep the possibility of having someone real make his appearance one day.



    Because if not, then cynicism will easily take over and that would be sad. I'll admit it. I'm human. I often have my doubts about the opposite sex and their intentions. Not specifically towards me but to women in general. There are a lot of creeps out there. So a girl has to look out and be on guard.. so she won't be vulnerable to getting her heart broken.


    For now, it's just a matter of being patient and taking this time to work on me, my goals and dreams. And to be completely honest if "he" never shows up, I would yes be disappointed but ... ok. Because I'd rather live my life single and dramafree than settle with yet another not so nice guy and his ish.. ya know what i mean?


    ---------------------------

    Still...


    ... I wonder.

    * The Golden Truth *

    What fantastic writing.
    Every word of it is true. Every word.




    Basic principles: No matter what, no matter when, no matter who... any man has a chance to sweep any woman off her feet.


    You cannot use what you do not have.
    So if you're shy, be shy.
    If you're outgoing, be outgoing.


    She may not want the whole truth,
    but she does want the real you.
    She may not want to see it all at once,
    but she does want to see it.
