Memes About Town (Memes of the Week)
Airports are for drinking, not having your shit together.
Red flags? But red looks so good on you!
If you love me, let me send you 67 texts in a row asking about a minor inconvenience.
How is it only Wednesday? Below we have some questions answered from our Sunday Scaries Q and A to get you through. Followed by a cocktail, of course.
Q. How do you tell someone they’ve hurt your feelings without wanting to start a big fight and argument?
It’s important in any relationship to be able to communicate authentically and be open with one another, even when the subject may be uncomfortable. That’s what makes the relationship one built on honesty. If you can simply and kindly communicate your frustrations, and your emotions, without the other person getting angry and gaslighting you, then you need to reconsider the friendship because your feelings, communicated patiently and thoughtfully, should not be cause for an argument, rather a discussion.
Q. How do you text a guy first?
It’s really hard, I think, for females to make the first move since we’ve been so conditioned to wait for the man to approach us, as is considered appropriate by society. But nowadays, I've had so many friends who’ve gone after what they wanted and built happy and healthy relationships! If you like someone, something as simple as replying to their story on instagram or xending a meme could be a great, quick conversation starter. A casual “Hey, what’s up?” text is also light and flirty, depending on the emoji being used.
Q. Where is the best place to meet people to date? I don’t like dating apps.
Personally, I've had great times going with friends to bars, lounges, and restaurants, and meeting fun people! Whether i;ve ended up dating them long term or just making a new friend, it’s always nice to meet someone face to face, with a great story to then tell people of how you first met. That feeling of not knowing whether someone will be in your life for a minute, or for a while, is so exciting!
Q. Will you guys do a podcast?
We have some exciting announcements coming up, actually! We’re always very careful about what we dive into so we want to make sure it’s perfect for your guys before we launch anything, and when we do- you’ll hear about it here first!
