Do you think that you deserve the best in a relationship? You’re probably thinking ‘Duh, why is CynTea asking such a stupid question?’ Well, there’s always a good reason why I ask these questions. And now that you’ve answered ‘YES’ to this question, I’ve got another one for you:  ‘Have you ever been in a relationship where you keep going through the same ups and downs over and over again?’ Hold that thought and picture this… You’re in a relationship. You and bae are really enjoying each other in all the ways you can think of. Heck, it feels like you guys are back in the honeymoon stage of the relationship. Nothing can go wrong at this point, right? But as soon as things are going very well, one particular thing keeps happening that just ruins the vibe between you guys. It’s like one day you’re really good and on another…

How low are you talking when you say ‘let’s keep it on a low’? If you’re hooked on watching the drama series Being Mary Jane like me, you would know that Mary Jane Paul has come out of limbo and is now in a secret relationship with Justin. He made it very clear from the start to keep things on the low for while. MJP has no idea how long this will last for but all she knows is that she can’t say a thing to anyone about the relationship. Not even her best friend! Can you do that? Actually let me rephrase this, are you happy to keep your relationship a secret for as long as it lasts for?  Is There Another Girl In The Picture? I had my first relationship when I was 16 and still remember how my boyfriend (at that time) asked me to be his girl. I remember how…

Have you ever met someone who felt like the one but for some reason things didn’t work out between you guys? You probably started asking yourself questions like: ‘Why is this happening to me?’ Girl, I’ve been there and it wasn’t nice at all… Lots of tears were shed and of course, hearts were broken… But I always wondered… If you’re convinced that he’s your Mr. Right, don’t you think that your situation would’ve allowed you guys to be together? And when you say Mr. Right, are you just referring to his personality or to him as a whole and everything around him? A lot of women are very quick to say ‘He’s the one!’ But is he really though? It Takes TWO To TANGO! There are a lot of Perfect Guy, Wrong Time scenarios. From your bae moving to a different country to your bae having a child with someone else. Heck, he…

Who wants to be in a happy and healthy relationship? I’m sure you’ve always wanted to be in one. Even if you’re a baby girl or baby boy enjoying your single life and not in a rush to settle down, this thought must have crossed your mind before. Especially after seeing how some couples treat each other in public, on social media and maybe even in your household. Some of you have fallen in love with the way some couples interact with each other and say: “What a lovely couple, they look so happy. I want something like that.” I can see why you would want something like that. I mean, who wouldn’t wanna be in a happy, healthy relationship? It sounds like a silly question but trust me when I say it’s not. And I’ll tell you why after asking you this question: Are you happy as a single person? Are You Happy…

There are loads of pictures of couples on Instagram and Twitter with the caption ‘#RelationshipGoals’. When you see these pictures, you start thinking about your love life and often get lost in your thoughts. You end up asking yourself: ‘Why am I single?’ Being A Single Pringle For 4 Years It’s been nearly four years since my last serious relationship. In the past couple of years, I’ve been dating but nothing has developed into a relationship. ‘You’re single CynTea, you should go on dates and mingle!’ Yes, I agree dating can be fun. But after some time had gone by, most of us would like to take things to the next level with our potential bae. That’s when things can get tricky as you end up finding out that the guy you’re dating isn’t looking to commit. You’re clearly not on the same page so now you’ve got to start from square one again *sigh*… ‘You’re NOT A Failure!’…

I’ve seen a lot of girls tweeting things like: “I just don’t have time for a man right now. I wanna build my business first before I can get into something serious.” Ladies, let’s be real… if a guy you really fancy told you that he can’t be in a relationship right now because of his very demanding career, will you not be gutted? Of course, you’ll be gutted! You’ll most probably give him 100 reasons on how you’re gonna support him to reach his full potential and not distract him in the relationship. So if this is something you would do, why are you stressed about dating or being in a relationship whilst being a boss lady? Use Your Time Wisely! Dating whilst building a brand/business can be hard. Both cost a lot of time. So how do you make time to work on your goals, spend quality time…

It’s coming up to the most LOVABLE time of the year. Some people have been looking forward to this day for a very long time. And there are people who wished that this day didn’t exist due to one reason or the other. Could be due to a heartbreak, memories of an ex or maybe they just don’t give a flying duck about this date. Either way, it doesn’t change the fact that Valentine’s Day is almost here. What Have You Got Planned For Valentine’s Day? Have you made any plans with bae? If you did, that’s good for you! Spoil your bae. In fact, show EXTRA love to bae if you like. Do whatever floats your boat. But what do you get up to on Valentine’s Day if you’re single and don’t have a bae to spend the day with? A lot of single people don’t look forward to this…

Have you ever found yourself breaking up with your ex only for things to feel like nothing has changed? Let me paint the picture… You’re still in regular contact with each other by having your daily WhatsApp debates, still sending each other memes through Instagram and let’s not forget about acting lovey-dovey like nothing has changed… This could be from days to months after the breakup! So when is the relationship really over I hear you say? Good question! Let’s dive straight into it. “Are You Guys Still Together?” Every couple has something that they would describe as ‘that’s our thing’. It could be from having a date night scheduled every Friday night to going back and forth with WhatsApp voice notes during working hours. It varies from couple to couple. Now imagine if “this thing” was to carry on after the breakup… I’ve experienced a few breakups in my lifetime that didn’t make any…

My love life has felt like a long roller coaster ride for the past couple of years. One minute, things are going very well with a guy and then suddenly things change. Does this scenario ring a bell to you? It’s like the conversations become less. You stop receiving those ‘Good morning miss, I hope you slept well’ messages. Every morning, you still wake up eager to find out whether he messaged you overnight. You look at your phone and guess what… NO text and missed calls from him. To make things worse, he even read your message on WhatsApp but didn’t respond back. Things just don’t feel the same anymore… What Have I Done?         ‘Have I done something wrong?’ is probably the first thought that strikes your mind. ‘Hmmm maybe he’s busy’ is what you say to reassure yourself that you haven’t done anything wrong. Somehow you end up reminiscing about…

I remember how a lot of people frowned upon online dating in my teenage years. In those days, you would’ve been called a desperado for using dating apps. But what do you really know about dating as a teenager? I guess you’re just too young to understand… Even in this day and age, there are still a lot of people who frown upon online dating. If you’re on Tinder, people automatically assume you’re desperately looking to have a one night stand. If you’re on MatchMaker, you’re considered to be a hopeless romantic. So what do you call the people who have found love on social media? Isn’t sliding into the DMs a form of online dating? It Goes Down In The DM! I’m sure someone has slid into your DMs before or maybe you’re guilty of doing all the sliding. Either way, I know for a fact that you’ve thought about…
