21 Uncommon Romantic Gestures That Would Make Any Girl Melt

Thought Catalog

1. Play with her hair while the two of you are watching TV. It doesn’t have to be complex, just a little light head touching/hair-messing-with will put her into a near-meditative state.

2. Get your dessert to-go at the restaurant so the two of you can eat it at home while watching a movie/your favorite TV show.

3. Instead of just asking her where she wants to go for dinner — because you know that she loves when you put in the effort to choose, but is really picky when it comes to what she wants — give her three options that you want to go to (including one or two you haven’t tried before, if possible). It’s the best of both worlds.

4. If you spend the night at her place (or even if you share the place) make the bed while she’s in the shower or getting ready.

21 Immature Dating Habits You Should Grow Out Of By 25

Thought Catalog

Community: Season 3Community: Season 3

1. Text message date invites. If you think back to your all-time favorite moments of interaction with friends, surely they won’t be text message conversations. Yes, faceless communication in romance is easier because the other person can’t see your nervousness and you have time to think of witty things and edit your responses, but courting via text is the electronic equivalent of a 5th grader passing a “Do you like me?” note. When it comes to romantics, it should always be more personal.

2. Secretly going through the person you’re dating’s phone, email and other password-protected stuff. If you actually catch yourself trying to ninja hack your love interest’s phone while in your mid-20s, it’s time to part ways or grow up.

3. Planning how long to take before initiating contact. It used to be “Wait two or three days before calling,” but the expiration date on…

The gift of waiting

Six years ago I met a boy. I had zero romantic interest in him, but we became the best of friends. We loved all the same things… soccer, live music, pizza + beer… the list could go on but these ones carry most of my memories of friendship with him.

We spent more afternoons at my favorite coffee shop in Jonesboro, Arkansas than I can remember between 2008-2010, sometimes talking and sometimes just sharing a table while I studied and he planned worship sets. We took as many trips to Memphis as we could to see our favorite bands play together. We talked sports and there was never anything more than a high five going on between us every time we left hanging out.

Then 2011 rolled around. He had a girlfriend at the time, and I remember beginning to think that I missed my best friend. Somewhere over those…

25 Things You Have To Try In Your 20s At Least Once

Thought Catalog

1. Call that person you’ve been thinking about for longer than you can remember, but whose rejection you have always feared. Just pick up the phone, hold your breath, and accept the fact that knowing how they feel is better than living in limbo.

2. Go on a camping trip with a solid group of your friends, a cooler of drinks, and enough grillable meats to last you for at least twice as long as you actually need. Get really scared when you think you hear a bear, and then realize it’s just your friend coming back from peeing.

3. Learn how to make your favorite restaurant dishes, even if they don’t taste as good as the original. Learn what actually goes into the food you love so much.

4. Apply to a job that you really want, but which you know you have next to zero chance of actually…

The 10 Qualities Good Boyfriends Have

Thought Catalog

CluelessClueless

1. He’s actually your boyfriend.

I know this seems obvious but if you’re reading an internet list about him and whether he’s your boyfriend and he won’t allow you to actually call him your boyfriend, he’s probably not a “good” boyfriend. Good guys are good people and good people know who they are and what they want and are confident enough to go after it — whether it is a relationship and a family or (for now) working so much they don’t have the time and energy left to invest in that — but either way, you’ll know. There’s no shadyness present.

2. You feel lucky to have him.

He’s the kind of guy that you’re excited to bring around your friends or take home to meet your parents — and you don’t need to coach him in the car on the drive there. You trust him to make…

25 Absolute Truths Womanhood Teaches You

Never cheap out on good make-up, toothbrushes, or bras.

There really is something to be said about the quality that goes into those things. I have never been one to spend a lot of money on weird things like that. I told myself it was all the same and bought the cheap stuff and spent money elsewhere. One day though I was converted and now I will never go back. These are your boobs and your teeth and your face, if you want to feel like a 10 you have to invest in it. Plus, the cost-benefit really is there, trust me I’ve done the math

Have a passion

Nothing is more attractive to another person than someone who cares deeply about something. Even if its something as dumb as vegan cooking or as legit as sports, a girl with a passion is a girl that’s undeniably sexy to…

Date A Man Who Loves You More

Thought Catalog

[tc-related post=”305050″]

Date a man who loves you more. Meet him young, at a time when you’re not old enough to realize how precious he is. Fall in love carelessly. Start to think he must be the one, begin building a life with him. Become entangled with his family and him with yours, believe he will be the father of your children in later years. Date a man who loves you more because he will love everything you hate about yourself. The man who loves you more will rub your feet when you’re tired and take your cousins out for ice cream because he is simply that kind of man. He will abandon his plans to come rub your back when you’re sick without you ever having to ask. The man who loves you more will allow you to grow as a person without taking space. He will be…

9 Quick Things You Should Practice To Get People To Like You

Thought Catalog

First, take a deep breath. Take another one. And another one.

1. Smile. It’s oft-said, but it’s said for a reason. People who smile are far more approachable! It’s as simple as that. A simple warm and friendly smile is enough to get people to have a positive attitude towards you.

2. Don’t reveal too much. Hold your cards close. Don’t tell people too much about yourself. People like to be heard and great listeners are often thought of as friendly! Just make sure to engage with the speaker — that way, you’re telling them you’re listening and care about what they have to say.

3. Speak concisely. When you mumble, that shows that you are not confident in what you have to say. A concise speaker is thought to know what they are talking about. Likeable people are able to convey their point quickly and efficiently — they…

9 Things Good Men Look For In A Woman

Thought Catalog

 ShutterstockShutterstock

1. Attraction.

Okay, we’re talking about grown-up men here, but attraction is still important. The difference is that adult, emotionally healthy MEN define attraction as simply what they are attracted to. Younger, insecure guys will have strict standards about how she has to be thin and have long hair and whatever else they’re scared their friends will make fun of them for not having. When we’re young our friends give us a lot of crap, so we try to live up to their expectations. As we get older, we realize it’s more important to please ourselves.

2. Not a shitshow.

Are you the girl that goes clubbing every weekend in a tiny dress? You may look hot, and we will definitely talk to you while we’re out, but by now we know this kind of girl comes with drama. Drama can be tolerable, or even exciting in your early/mid…
