5 Things You Should Do When You’re In Love

Originally posted on Thought Catalog:

I don’t know about you, but I don’t fall in love all that often. Falling in love is like going to Disneyland–it’s only going to happen once or twice in your life (if ever), and you’re going to want to get on that Indiana Jones ride as many times as possible before you have to leave. Everyone’s relationship differs, and there’s most certainly a lot of important things that go into having a successful relationship, but here are 5 essential things you should do in order to fully take advantage of being in love…

1. Be Honest

With love comes the security of someone having your back. Be yourself. Be your best self. Be your worst self. Sing in the shower. Fart. Don’t make promises you can’t keep and be done with secrets. When you’re in love, you should be honest–unclench, relax, relish in…

Broken Heart

We all have our firsts.

And for a late bloomer like me who’s coping up with a heartache and broken heart, it’s been a month already.
It was the worst!

Have you ever cried in the restaurant while eating pizza in front of your friends?

Have you ever cried at work?

Have you ever cried almost everyday that it just drains your energy until you fall to sleep, and after waking up, you’re crying again to the point wherein no more tears are flowing and you like it’s going to be blood that you’re going to shed?

Have you ever experienced not eating almost for three weeks, and the only thing you’ll do is eat junk food and just take your vitamins just not to feel weak.

Have you ever tried crying over the phone because one of your close friends just called you and you can’t hold back your tears?

Have you ever tried deleting and untagging your photos of him and photos of you two together because you want to move on?

Have you ever tried holding backup your tears and faking a smile whenever someone’s going to ask if you’re okay?

Have you ever tried questioning God why all of those things happened?

Have you ever felt SO INSECURE that you don’t even want to go out to work, that you don’t even fix your hair and didn’t even put a little make-up on your face?

Have you ever tried committing suicide but thinking that there’s more to life and you still have your friends and family with you will not be worth you being dead?

Have you felt so small?

Have you ever felt that no one’s gonna love you anymore?

And now honestly, I’m bitter. I don’t know how to trust people again specially guys and even men.
Tried dating guys and men but yeah, knowing that they are also assholes is making me more cautious right now.
I just wanna love myself more and live my life and be happy now that I’m single. I am not ready yet for a relationship that needs serious commitment. I just wanna play games. I want to know more men, it’s like I want to know more about their nature-why are they so polygamous in nature, as what history and science has been telling us.

SHIT HAPPENS. THAT’S LIFE.

ADIOS.

Having roommates is a cornerstone of life in your twenties. You probably first started out by living with a complete stranger in a dorm room. Chances are this person was a complete psycho who ate their own hair but, who knows, sometimes you get lucky. Then, by sophomore year, you get a place off-campus with your BEST FRIENDS FROM SCHOOL. The first few months will be pure ecstasy, buying wine goblets from IKEA, having house dinners, pre-gaming together on Saturday nights, and watching TV on a Sunday with your limbs all entangled like octopuses. It’s heaven until it’s hell, until there’s drama and someone ends the friendship and moves out. Still, it was fun while it lasted, right?

Eventually, you’ll reach a point in your life when you’ll want to live alone and can actually afford to do it. Even if it means moving further…

35 Of The Best And Worst Things About Living Alone

Originally posted on Thought Catalog:

Ever since I can remember, as a kid I was obsessed with the idea of living alone. I guess it was a fantasy I had from playing house and taking it a little too seriously. This resulted in becoming a fiercely independent child that turned teen adolescent to now grown woman. It progressively got to be a little strange and concerning for some that I had no qualms with being alone and the mere slightest hint of unnecessary socialization would freak me out and feel ultimately, claustrophobic and smothering. I used to ask myself in a hopeful non-conceited way, ‘Ugh, why are these people so obsessed with me?’ of course they probably weren’t obsessed with me, they were just legitimately wanting to hang out like regular people do.

Now, cometh the day when I am suitably independent and (semi) socially acquired, living alone has proven to be a…

7 Things All Women Want In A Relationship

Originally posted on Thought Catalog:

Men and women are at an emotional stalemate.

We feel something’s lacking in our relationships. The majority of men aren’t able to penetrate their women fully, nor are women fully opening to their men.

Women aren’t opening because men aren’t giving them what they need. Women feel disappointed and resentful; they are suffering. When women suffer, and they feel like they aren’t being seen, they close off to their men.

Fortunately, you can learn the right tools to be able to more fully penetrate your woman. You can give your partner what she needs, allowing her to feel seen so that she will open again.

Take the time to read through these needs. Let them sink in. Understanding what you can do to help your partner fully open will not only improve your relationship, but it will improve your entire life.

Here are the seven things that all…

The year 2012 has already ended and the schedules for the last salary standardization rate should have been increased, subject to certain laws, by the year end. Joint Resolution No. 4, enacted by both houses of Congress states the rates for standardized salaries of Philippine government employees.

The following table of rates, in Philippine Pesos, are as follows, as stated in Item 4 (b) of said resolution:
