Today I’m sharing my experiences and things I’ve learnt about relationships in my twenties.

    I’m not in my twenties. But what I’ve learnt so far is that a guy likes the chase. and im sure all girls know this. and then when they have you what they started doing they don’t do anymore.

    He’s Just Not That Into You is one of the greatest books ever, brilliant for getting over a breakup and realising your worth!

    I am 2 years into my twenties and completely agree with everything you said, #1 especially. I stop getting as frustrated when I realized men and woman are completely different. A guy is not going to think the same way as I do and that’s something I have to accept.

    AMEN!! Very true points here! I’m going to pass this on to all my 20-something cousins! I recently did a blog post titled ’30/30 Hindsight’ in which I dove into all the life lessons I learned from my 20s. One of my favorites about relationships is: Love can come in so many different forms outside of simply saying the words “I love you.”
