To The Boy Who Was Never My Boyfriend

Originally posted on Rosie Culture:
To: you. Even when you set boundaries and even when you make rules – everything and anything can be broken. It always starts out so simple. Physical. Easy. But emotions tip toe their way in and create a large and tangled mess. I was left with so many pieces and you still seemed whole. You seemed fine, like you didn’t care at all. Did you care at all? You weren’t my boyfriend – I wouldn’t have ever dared to call you my boyfriend. But we laughed a lot and we kissed a lot. And sometimes you’d put your arm around my shoulders at a party. And sometimes you’d tell me how much you liked me. But did you even like me at all? Nothing was ever defined so we were free to do as we pleased. No emotions and no ties. But there were so many emotions and broken ties by the end of it. There was an end, but I’m not sure there was ever a beginning. Some days…

Let’s Talk: Situationships

I’m taking a break from talking about my work life (still crazy) and #SayYestotheAddress search (crazier) to talk about something that I haven’t touched on in a hot minute: relationships.  Well, sort of.  It doesn’t have the title of a relationship but it’s not simply a hook up- this limbo of dating is what I refer to as: the situationship.

I get it, I do.  It’s fun at first because you think you’re going to be the one to change their mind.  But you’re not going to (but if you do, don’t hesitate to spill how you did it with all girls everywhere). Insert cliche: why buy the cow if you get the milk fo free.  While a situationship is convenient when neither person wants something serious or to be…

What is it like to be in love with someone who has autism?

Wonderful. Challenging. Beautiful. Frustrating. But so worth it. My boyfriend, Kyle, and I have been dating for around a year and a half now, and he has been diagnosed with autism, ADHD, and dyslexia. I’m often asked if that makes a relationship difficult, and my honest answer is always yes. Of course it does. So why am I still with him? Well, he makes me happy for one. He is also an incredible person whose personality I love. My dad always said to me, if you’d be happy with your own child dating someone like your partner then you’re with the right one. Honestly, I would love my future children to date someone like Kyle. However, our relationship faces struggles that some other couples might not face so in this post I’m going to list all the good points, and the bad, about dating someone with autism. Everyone with autism and ADHD are different and so this will be based on my own personal experiences, and I’d love…
