Keep your plans. Be on time.
Take care of your skin. Wash your face every night.
Pick up the tab when you can.
Wear the ridiculous heels while you can.
Do not confess you’re hungry or cold or broke. Even to friends who say you can confide things like that to. Use your parents for things like that.
Silence is powerful. Think before you speak. Listening is more valuable.
Nobody wants to hear what your dream was the night before.
If a guy says “a friend” it’s a female. He’ll use a first name for guys.
Get regular checkups from your Doctor. Speak up if you think something is wrong.
Don’t quit your current job before securing another one.
Ask for that raise. Ask again.
It’s about what people do more than what they say.
Everyone lies. You will get hurt. You will recover.
They do have a crush on you.
It’s ok to let the guy open the door, to take your hand when navigating the street.
Eat the dessert.
If you make each other laugh at 2am over the loud neighbors upstairs keep them.
Don’t go to bed angry.
Kiss often. Have sex even when you’re tired.
No one likes a drunk. Don’t get wasted every night.
Send your guy flirty, silly, sappy messages and photos. They actually do like that when it’s from their girl.
Say thank you often.
The folded laundry can wait to be put away. Go outside and play.
Kids will fill your heart.
He sees you 100 times more attractive than you will when you look in the mirror. He’s right.
Travel. Plan trips and small adventures. Money is going to go one way or the other.
If he plays a guitar when you’re cooking in the kitchen, or wants to be around you in general when he’s doing something he loves you’re the luckiest girl in the world.
He means it when he says you don’t need makeup or to get dressed up. Do it anyway every now and then. Change in routine is good.
Embrace the pony tail.
Let go of anything that is holding you back.
