This week's topic:
Over the years, what did you learn you needed in a significant other? What did you learn about yourself?
My sweet single Ashley,
You have learned so much in these short 18 years of your little life and have discovered alot about yourself and what you need from particular relationships. Each friendship and each relationship you have found yourself in has taught you something, both good and bad. You have take those good and bad things and figure out what is important to you in a man.
Hello Highschool....you weren't my best looking days...
You will learn from it all that you need someone who will hang out at home with you but will also let you be the social butterfly you always have been and won't hold you back because of their insecurities. You need someone who is trusting and in return that you can trust because you will come to learn that it is a HUGE part of a successful relationship. Someone who makes you laugh is a must, but also finding that person who will listen to your worries and insecurities without judgement will be nice too. I say this from experience.... there is a man out there that will compliment you like chocolate and strawberries. He will support, encourage, push, and motivate you to be the best you that you can be and you will love him more every day for it. Don't get hung up on people who bring you down, bring out your insecurities, and make you question them daily. They just aren't worth it. Be silly, have fun, and enjoy the time left you have with your friends.
Until those doors open, and until you find him, keeping learning and leading a life that you are proud to live. Enjoy the time with your best friends. Laugh, have fun, go to fun concerts, take fun road trips, and know that in just a few years, you will meet a man who will forever change your life. Just to keep you motivated...your wedding day will be the happiest day of your life and will be the least that you love your husband during your marriage. How do you like them apples? :)

Describe your first date with your now current partner. Did you feel any "butterflies" on your first couple of encounters? Did you have any indication it would later be the "real deal?"
