Keeping your legs closed= a lot less broken hearts or STDs

So of course here is the topic that most college students or young adults in their 20s need to really think about and understand how themselves feel about it. 

Are you willing to just be friends with benefits with someone? If so then do you fully understand what that means? There are rules to it, there are standards, and it is a lot of hard work that might end in someone’s feelings getting hurt. 

With today’s generation many teens and young adults are no longer investing themselves into relationships with other people. Instead they are finding their sexual fix, companionship fix, or just late night movie buddy fix that results in hooking up before Drew Barrymoore gets killed in Scream by having friends with benefits. 

It is something that most guys would love to have and most girls just give-in to because they hope it could result in a relationship with that guy. (GIRLS IT NEVER LEADS TO A RELATIONSHIP, SO STOP BEFORE YOU TAKE YOUR PANTIES OFF AND GIVE AWAY YOUR HEART TO BE CRUSHED). Of course if two people do agree to fully be just friends with benefits I personally feel there are 10 top rules that they must follow to avoid the awkwardness, frustration, or heart-breaking to develop. 

1. Respect each other. The minute that is broken then it is no longer worth it. 

2. Get tested and use protection in all forms every time you hook up. 

3. Do not always expect that friends with benefits to be available 24/7. If someone is busy do not get pissed at them for picking friends, other plans, or maybe a date over a hook up with you.

4. Be honest with each other. Tell each other your desires, expectations, health issues and the minute you may start having feelings for the other person tell them! 

5. Do not treat each other like boyfriend or girlfriend because you are not. That is how feelings develop. 

6. Do not text, call, send millions of owls or knock on the other person’s door every night until you are able to get a yes to meet up because it becomes annoying and you probably will not longer have that FWB or even that friend. 

7. Acknowledge each other in public. You don’t have to be best friends, but common courtesy is best rather than awkward run ins at bars or grocery stores. 

8.  Take care of yourself. Yeah you don’t need to impress each other, but still if you are expecting someone to hook up with ya then you better make it worth it and desirable. 

9. Be fair. Do not expect the girl or guy to do all the work and get nothing in return. Possibly the most unsatisfying and frustrating thing that can happen to the other person and results in losing that FWB real quick. 

10. Do not have a FWB if you are in a relationship with another person because guess what? THAT IS CHEATING!!!! And if the person is in a relationship do not be FWB with them because you are doing wrong as well. 

Now if you believe you can follow all these rules and any additional rules, expectations, etc. that you and your FWB have then maybe you can handle this arrangement and be happy with it. 

I will say though if you ever believe this is not the right kind of arrangement for you then NEVER EVER force yourself to be in one just to make the other person happy. Do it to make yourself happy or else just be happy single, watch chick flicks, have nights out with your friends, and enjoy the fact that you are not knocked up or have an STD. It surprisingly a lot less stressful, happier, and healthier to just being single and not attached to anyone. 

Love, thongs, and success!

Ain’t Too Proud To Beg!

Subject: The Booty-Call Begger

Hello tumblr-ers!!

So today, I thought it would be a good day to teach a lesson in the proper booty-call etiquette. Since I have recently run into a staggering number of inappropriate booty-call attempts, I thought that perhaps it needed to be addressed. 

Now, everyone loves a good booty-call and in my book, they are perfectly fine way to spend your weeknights/weekends or even an afternoon if you are feeling risky. However, like with everything else that comes with any kind of relationship, there are lines that need to be drawn and boundaries that must not be crossed. 

First of all, if you are looking to get a successful booty-call, attempting to ask that person to come over after midnight is kind of a stretch. Here are some things you can run into if you decide to booty-call attempt after midnight: 1) They might already have plans they are unwilling to break, or leave for you. 2) They might be too drunk to really function properly and there is no way they will safely get to the chosen location. 3) They might be freakin’ asleep already. 

I have come across several booty-calls at 3am or later and I’m sorry but all plans are INCREDIBLY null and void by 3am….that is just way to late to be asking me to get frisky. 

Secondly, I understand that you are in desperate need to “get it in” but don’t get mad at me when I am unable or unwilling to drop everything I am doing to please you. I have had guys literally get angry with me that I won’t come over. Not only does that make me feel bad that I angered you, but it also makes you look like a huge douche.

Note*: If you were successful in getting a first booty-call with someone, then you sure as hell won’t get a second one if you make them feel bad for having a life that doesn’t revolve around your need for sex. 

Finally, please dear god, handle a failed booty-call attempt with grace. You do not need to beg and beg, if they say no twice, they will most likely never accept your offer. There is nothing worse or more awkward then someone who continually tries to convince you that coming over will be just as good as winning the lottery. If you haven’t already learned it…no means no. Begging is sad, don’t do it. 

So of course, these are personal feelings and opinions, I am sure there are those out there that disagree with my etiquette, but just be aware of what you are asking for when you want to booty-call it up. Hopefully this has taught some of you something and happy booty-calling! 

Love, Thongs and Success

And Then There Is The Matter Of Payment…

Hello Tumblr-ers!

So if you happened to read the second to last blog posted, I talked about the reasons that might make someone undateable.

One of the reasons I thought would be a great blog topic for today! I know there are tons of different opinions about this topic, especially between Jackie and I!

Who should pay on (first) dates? I have spoken with Jackie about this very topic and we actually didn’t completely agree on the subject. So I am just going to give my opinion and let you lovely people form your own opinion as well!

My feelings are pretty simple. As independent as I would like to think I am, if asked if I think the guy should pay on a first date, I would have to say yes, I think he should. Personally, I feel that the dates we go on before we are an “official” couple should be paid for and then as soon as the relationship is official, then payment can be shared equally between the two.

I really have no reason for this thinking, it is just how I feel about the subject.

Of course I think every relationship is different and if guys pay too much, I do start to feel really bad about how much money is being spent on me.

Find out what works best for you and what makes the most sense and makes you the most comfortable in your relationship!

Have a beautiful day tumblr-ers!

Love, Thongs and Success

"VH1’s Top 100 Reasons A Man Could Be UNDATEABLE"

Hello Tumblr-ers!

So I was watching VH1 today and they were showing the marathon of the top 100 things that can make a guy undateable.

Some of these things are soooo true and others I had to look up because I can’t believe they were actually on the list…part of me thinks they ran out of some ideas so they got a little nit-picky to fill time but maybe that is just me!

Men, be a wingman and share this with your friends so you all don’t become UNDATEABLE!

P.s. girls, some of you might do these things too so maybe you want to take a read as well!

Enjoy!

Love, Thongs and Success!!
