as long as they have a happy and equal relationship

VIRGO - Dating

WOMAN:

A Virgo woman is earthly and she may seem cold and detached, but underneath the timid, reserved surface lies the real woman, a strong, passionate woman with a great capacity for strong devoted love. She will play hard to get, she is hard to get for she is worried about exposing her emotional vulnerabilities and getting hurt. She requires patience and you will have to court her and work hard to impress her. Once she is in love, it is for the long term. She will be devoted, loyal and make you very happy and even put a little order in your life. Virgo woman is conservative and old-fashioned, a typical woman who is perfect for the man who loves a challenge and likes to take a relationship slowly.


MAN:

The Virgo man has a cool exterior with a sensitive interior. He has tremendous respect for a woman and will treat her like and equal. He likes women who stir his emotions because he is reluctant to express his own emotions, which he tries and this often causes conflict not just inside himself, but it spills out into the relationship. This man takes patience and understanding. He will not get extremely close so do not try to enter his psyche and become closely entangled, this will make him feel threatened. He needs a classy woman who is not impulsive or unconventional. He leads a predictable life and a predictable woman will make him feel safe. He is perfect for the down to earth, conventional woman. He won’t be romantic and sweep you off your feet, but he will be by your side and be very loyal. This man’s sensuality comes out with time. For the woman who wants a stable, solid relationship with a visible, smooth sailing future is perfect for the Virgo man.

Meenah is making a really legitimate point here.

I think she’s aware of how much (Vriska) has changed since they got together. I mean, getting a tattoo immediately after saying she’d always thought they were dumb? Suddenly being okay with horses after having professed a long-lasting hatred of them? Immediately changing tacks and saying she’s okay with going to fight Lord English in order to get Meenah to stay? Being with Meenah makes (Vriska) happy, but that doesn’t mean it’s the best thing for her.

Meenah is the equivalent of six years older than (Vriska), and even if their relationship started out with them on equal footing, Meenah now has a significant amount of power over (Vriska), to the point where (Vriska) will do things that she’s uncomfortable with in order to keep Meenah happy. And maybe straight up breaking up with (Vriska) isn’t the best way for Meenah to encourage independence and happiness for her girlfriend, but as we saw when Meenah was talking to John about the ring, she’s yet another Homestuck character who’s afraid of her capacity for evil.

When Meenah says that she’s “bad,” she’s not trying some half-assed “it’s not you, it’s me,” and she’d definitely not fishing for compliments. She’s pointing out that in her mind, she is a dangerous person for (Vriska) to get so attached to, because she has way too much power over her and can’t really be sure she’ll use it wisely. The method is painful, but ultimately I respect her a lot for breaking off this relationship.

ARIES - Dating

WOMAN

Dating an Aries never lacks excitement. She is hot-blooded and forceful, so you had better be able to handle the heat! The Aries woman is for the person who likes an independent self-driven woman who can fend for herself and is not clingy and needy. An Aries woman requires freedom. For the Aries woman, the best part of the relationship is the beginning, then the spark is there and she is trying to catch you to be hers.

She will find happiness in a long-term relationship because she enjoys sharing everything with her partner. She will not only have a romantic partner but a best friend too. She has a great need for love and passion but she will never let a man become the master, she considers her partner to be equal. Aries women are not for domineering men. She will be faithful but she expects the same in return.

She can be jealous because she wants a man to give her all of his attention, “all or nothing”, so her jealousy is rooted in her possessiveness, she has to be number one in his eyes. She will always encourage and give strength to her partner so an Aries woman is great to have in times of despair or need, she will always be there for you. In order to have this happy ending, she needs to feel appreciated and loved.


MAN

An Aries man has a lust for adventure so if you are thinking about having a relationship with an Aries man, be prepared for fast-paced adventure, novelty and excitement. He is always eager to try new things - including relationships. That is not to say that every Aries man will only provide an exciting and short-lived relationship, but this is usually the case. He might stick around if you are the type of woman that enjoys having the man take the lead and basking in his glory.

He enjoys challenge so if you are the woman to offer challenges to him - like playing hard to get - he might stick around longer. Remember, this man is all about the thrill of the chase. Do not however, act as if you don’t care about him. He needs you to be “swept off your feet” by him. Appear innocent- hard-to-get and he will be wrapped around your little finger. Never take advantage of the Aries man because his short temper will turn into a fury of anger and he will leave and never look back.

List of people I would have preferred Kara Zor El be with rather than who CW is pushing at her:

  • Lena (great chemistry on screen, interesting conflicts that could arise later)
  • James (he genuinely cares about her, gives her freedom/space, respects her opinion???, very equal relationship)
  • Lucy (comes back, is gay, happy times)
  • Barry (makes her laugh, lives in another dimension so long distance could be a go)
  • M’gann (They talked? A couple of times? Was friendly. Good mutual respect)
  • Jess the Secretary (the love no one saw coming)
  • That Girl Kara Saved That One Time (would probs respect her more than you know who)
  • No-love, just bro-ing with Winn
  • No romantic love, just being epic with Alex
  • Literally just herself. Kara learns to love herself. 

As a girl, when I’m in a relationship with a guy I genuinely enjoy cooking and cleaning for him, and taking the time to spoil him and make him feel good. I also like having a guy protect me and keep me safe.

As long as you’re treated with respect there’s nothing wrong with fitting in with some typical gender roles.

Personally I enjoy doing all this, but if there’s ever a day I don’t feel like getting dolled up or cooking a meal then my partner is equally happy to do it and doesn’t expect me to ever put myself out to accomodate him.

It’s also completely possible to be a good ‘housewife’-style woman and still maintain all your independence, have a career, and do whatever else you want.

“I’m just so happy you’re here now.”

For me, it wasn’t “I couldn’t handle losing you” that read as “I love you,” but “I’m just so happy you’re here now.”

It really speaks to the kind of person Asami is, to express love in something so positive and so simple and so honest.  That’s what love is, I think—it isn’t just that you’re afraid to lose the person you love, but that your life is all the richer when they’re present, just simply there.

Personally for me, “I’m so happy to see you” often carries equal, if not more weight than “I miss you.”  This is coming from someone who’s been in a long distance relationship for around 5 years now—I’ve spent enough time coming and going and watching my love arrive and depart and this is my main takeaway from that experience.  Absence and presence are really weird and really powerful forces that have the ability to both damage and reinforce pre-existing love.  But ultimately, this dialectic helps to clarify one’s emotions and sentiment.

My favorite couple on this planet are officially married now! I’m so happy for them both, words can’t even begin describe how excited I am for this new chapter in their lives. I mean much won’t change honestly because they’ve acted like they were married for so long now it’s just on paper. I can’t wait till they bring a child into this world because their baby will influence generations to come like they have and will be equally if not more talented than their parents. I can’t even continue to look through pictures of their wedding anymore I just keep crying happy tears lol. But I will say this I love that their wedding was down to earth like they are. I honestly look up to them so much, I thrive to have a relationship like theirs. Also Hannah’s dress was gorgeous as hell, that open back show cased her beautiful back tattoo like a charm. Well congrats Hannah and Oli, I love you both! ❤️

about the immortality issue

it is a positive thing that they are tackling it now

the sooner Alec and Magnus deal with that elephant in the room, the sooner they can have a healthy, equal, and fair relationship

also, Alec’s feelings about this are clearly connected with their different life-spans: he isn’t jealous of Camille, he understands that her and Magnus’s relationship is long over, but he acknowledges that she has a point regarding Magnus’s immortality

it’s certain that there will be angst next season because of this whole debacle, but keep in mind that we would’ve probably reached this point regardless, it was only a matter of time

and the faster this is dealt with, the faster we’ll see them happy*

(* or tortured in some other excruciating way, as usually happens in tv shows; but hey, at least we’ll be one problem down)
