Happy Holidays! You know Santa, right? Big belly, red suit, jolly face? Yeah, he’s pretty cool. He leaves presents under your tree and is full of wisdom. Did you know some of that wisdom includes helping you snag a BF for Christmas?
Well now you do:
1. Don’t live in your past, but don’t forget it either
Everyone has a past. Everyone has a history with someone. That’s normal, and that’s life. As much as you can say you want to move on from your past, it doesn’t mean you have to forget about it. Some of the best lessons come from our pasts.
2. Set the mood
Instead of just turning on the TV for some sexy time background noise, try actually setting the mood with music and candles and whatnot. It makes a nice difference!
3. Be encouraging
Your partner shouldn’t have to ask you for encouragement and support. That’s a built-in thing in a relationship so make sure you remember to always be there and cheer your boo on!
4. Don’t avoid serious conversations
Look. No one likes serious conversations. But they’re really important so don’t avoid them until it’s too late.
5. Don’t be afraid to have a little fun
Get dressed up, experiment, whatever! It’s fun to spice things up!
6. Consent is a MUST
Like, there is NO way around this. At all. EVER.
7. Small gestures go a long way
A simple hi to your crush in the hallway can make their day. Texting your boyfriend or girlfriend you’re thinking about them really means a lot. Don’t forget the little things.
8. Know when to break it off
The only thing worse than a breakup is finding out that someone was too cowardly to end it when they weren’t into it anymore. Don’t waste someone’s time because you don’t want to look like the bad guy.
9. Be clean
Get tested for STDs, always use condoms, have good hygiene. These are all very important!
10. Second chances are okay sometimes
You know what? Maybe your ex has changed. Maybe you should give it another shot. It’s up to you. Don’t let anyone tell you what to do.
