Take A Stand

Look, I get it.

I was once a struggling college student. Hell, I’m still struggling financially, just not like I was when I was first on my own.

In college, Ramen noodles was always a signature dish in our dorm. Our go-to beer was PBR or The Beast or even malt liquor because it was dirt cheap and got the job done. I even had one friend steal cups and silverware from the school cafeteria.

The point is – I get what it means to not have certain luxuries in life and I would never go out of my way to make fun of people who can’t afford certain things.

But I have noticed that dating in both my twenties and thirties has been significantly marked with men who sleep on mattresses on the ground.

Now, granted, bed frames aren’t a necessity in life and getting in and out of bed can often be easier when there isn’t a tall frame of wood to hurdle over. But for some reason, this single lack of furnishing just screams “lack of maturity” and apparently, I’m not the only one who has both noticed and is bothered by this trend.



The Significant Other Game

Relationships aren’t easy. No matter how much you love someone, arguments and disagreements are bound to surface and that’s largely due to one significant other not understanding the needs or love style of another significant other.

For example, a couple might incessantly fight about how much time the woman spends in the bathroom – showering and doing her makeup. At face value, this might annoy her boyfriend because he needs to get in there. However, on a deeper level, he’s pissed because such behavior is inconsiderate and can even be viewed as narcissistic.

Conversely, a female in a relationship can find themselves getting exceedingly annoyed with her partner’s obsession with video games. Such behavior takes attention off of her and, in extreme cases, can actually result in less intimacy and sex, altogether.

In fact, one study out of the University of Chicago showed that video games were one of the leading culprits in why young men as a whole are having less sex.
