 @Statuesque As a 23-year old, who has been caught up in work the past year (and hasn't dated since college over a year ago), you hit the nail on the head. I developed a sense of self-worth in college, and attracted quality guys into my life. I'm realizing now how incredibly important it is to maintain those good habits of telling yourself that you are worthy of love no matter who you are around or what circumstances you find yourself in. Your comments for this girl in college are right on the ball, and they spoke directly to me too- thank you so much. Sometimes I need a reminder that it is ok (important, even) to have that "mhm" moment in the mirror that Christelyn talks about  :)

I literally BUSTED out laughing reading this post. YES Christelyn- yes.  I'll see it on redbox when it comes out. (Either that or if my grandma drags me to theater first).

 

P.S. I definitely picked up and sped through your 'Swirling' book! Congrats on a great read- I am smiling more at potential rainbeaus, and they are starting to smile back :)

 @FriendsofJay Why 'dark but beautiful'? Why not dark AND beautiful?! This is one of the primary issues that seeps into our language... even those of us who claim to favor women with richer complexions. I've not posted on here, but I've been lurking for more than a minute, and that was about the last time I could see a statement like that without saying something about it.
