There are so many ways to flaunt your bae to the whole world. From making your boo your plus one to EVERY single party you attend to posting pictures of your boo on Instagram. Posting your bae on social media has become a way of showing public affection to each other. A lot of people are all for flaunting their partner on social media. But there are some pros and cons that come with this. In this blog, I will be sharing two points you need to know before you decide to flaunt your bae on social media. The Birth Of #RelationshipGoals Back in the day, there weren’t any camera phones and social media platforms to publicise your relationship. The only way you would know that someone was in a relationship was by word of mouth or if someone introduced their bae to you. This changed when Facebook added the option to share your relationship status with everyone! I know some people…

Have you ever felt the urge to snoop through your partner’s belongings? Let me paint the picture… You’re at your partner’s house and you come across a random box in their closet. The fact that you’re even going through their closet is another question of its own. Anyways, you see this box on the top shelf. Do you leave it where it is or do you go through their stuff? Well Mary Jane Paul in the series Being Mary Jane couldn’t resist but to look through the box she found in her partner’s closet. According to her, she just wants to know more about her bae Justin. Is that a justified reason to go through your partner’s belongings though? ‘He Went Through My Phone!’ A couple of years ago, I dated a very weird guy. I probably don’t sound nice using the word weird to describe this guy but there’s literally no other word that describes his actions the…

What do you do when the love of your life decides to move to a different country? You’ll most probably burst down in tears and maybe even consider going with him. I’ve been there and did both. In my blog ‘When Are You Getting Married, [Insert Your Name]?’ I briefly touched on long distance relationships and said that this would be a topic for another day. Well today is the day to dive into this topic. Can you see yourself being in a long distance relationship if your partner decides to move to a different country to chase their dream? In this blog I will be discussing three points you gotta have in place in order for your long distance relationship to work. A Little Background Story… When I was 18 years old, I fell head over heels for a guy. We were in a relationship and everything was going so well.…

Have you ever watched a show where a girl declares her love to a guy by saying ‘I Love You’ only for him to respond back saying or doing something completely different? Some men will just kiss you to avoid saying it back or they’ll respond back with 101 questions about a different topic to distract you from the fact that you even said it in the first place! His reaction has got you thinking all kind of things… Does he even love me? Did I say it too soon? Are we on the same page? Hmm don’t you hate that feeling of uncertainty? It’s like you regret saying it all together! So that leads me to asking this question: When is the right time to say ‘I Love You’ to your partner? I’ll be using ily as a short version of ‘I Love You’ in this blog and will also be…

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…

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 sometime 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!’ After going through a lot…

Have you ever gone through the same cycle in a relationship or a friendship? Every time you address the issue, you hope and pray things will change for the better but somehow you keep going through the same sh*t over and over again! You’re trying your best to fix the issue but your friend or maybe even your bae don’t seem to play their role in fixing the reoccurring problem. This could be an issue that you’re both responsible for or an issue from their side. Either way, whatever you keep going through needs to STOP! Same sh*t, different toilet! There are so many different situations you can find yourself in that will seem like a never ending cycle. All scenarios lead to the same thing: frustration at its finest *sigh*. A very common example is when someone keeps flopping on plans that were made in advance. If you’ve read any of my previous blogs like ‘How…

That moment when a potential bae texts you ‘What you doing today? Let’s meet up’. You want to consider going but you know fully well that you already made prior plans with your girlfriends. What should you do? This feels like the most difficult decision you’ve ever had to make in your life. You have an angel on one side of your shoulder telling you to stick to your original plans and the devil on the other side convincing you to meet up with him. Confusion at its finest. In this post, I will discuss points to consider before deciding to go on a spontaneous meet up with a dude. Stop overthinking! As women we think so far ahead before we’re even in a relationship. ‘If I don’t go, he’ll never ask me to meet up again. If I don’t go, we’ll never get married.’ Wait, wait, wait a minute… get…

Have you ever planned a whole conversation before it takes place and when you actually have the chat it goes nothing like how it was planned? It could be when you’re in a sticky situation and you’re trying to get yourself out of it or it could be when someone annoys you in a relationship or a friendship. When the wound is fresh and you’re fuming, it’s as if you get flashbacks of every time this person annoyed or maybe even disrespected you. You start writing a list of problems in your head. Sometimes you end up writing notes in your phone so you can hit them with evidence to back up why you think what they are doing or what they did is dead wrong. Let me hit them with the notes lol! You just want to get everything off your chest, get your point across and hope that…

It’s getting closer to your birthday, shindig, party or whatever event you have organised. You wake up, head straight to your calendar and cross out each day on your calendar as you approach your anticipated event. Every time you think about your party, you start picturing how it’s going to be like and without realising it, you start making plans for you and “Him”. You’re finally going to introduce him to everybody that night! So, you even start making plans for the day after your party by making sure he doesn’t have anything planned so you guys can go for breakfast together and spend the WHOLE day together like the night before was not enough LOL. You can’t get enough of him. You can’t wait for this day to come because he has no reason to flop you because of course, he wants to see you that day. The Waiting Game As…
