Look in boyfriend
Don't even think about getting married before you check this list! It's exciting to find a man who's ready to stop playing dating games and start focusing on what one woman — you — have to offer in relationships, but before you even consider committing to him as "boyfriend and girlfriend", let alone think seriously about getting married and making him your husband, it's critical to know which personality traits to look for as signs that he will actually be a good boyfriend and, potentially, a good husband. You can use this "checklist" of sorts as a guide to understanding what you should look for when it comes to deciding whether or not a man is worthy of you or an investment of your time. This trait separates the men from the boys. All you ever want is for a man to say what he means and mean what he says. A consistent boyfriend is a man you can trust.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: baking a cake + boyfriend drama

An amazing man of course has amazing friends, ones that take you in and make you feel like you belong. He is so great that half of you wants to show him off to the world and the other half wants to hide him away all to yourself. He makes sure to compliment you on your looks when he sees you're makeup free because he knows your confidence level lacks there. He never wants to see you cry, hurt or mad and does his best to avoid ever making you feel or do any of those three.
He gives you endless forehead kisses even though he still isn't sure what the big fuss is all about. You constantly have to tell him not to crack your ribs every time he hugs you goodbye because he squeezes you so hard. And lastly, he loves you and makes that known in every way, word and action possible.
He never leaves you with a single doubt that you are the girl he so madly fell in love with. Every person finds themselves falling in love with so many individual little things and whatever they may be, let your person know they haven't gone unnoticed because those tiny things are ultimately the pieces that make up your crazy good love story.
Now more than ever, we are all incredibly thankful for our healthcare workers, and really everyone who is on the front lines of taking care of our neighbors and loved ones during this time. I don't happen to be an " essential worker ," but when I talk to my friends who are nurses and doctors, the number-one complaint I get from them has been surprising to me: they can't stop complaining about how badly their feet hurt from running around all day and night.
Honestly, I don't blame them. They all asked me for recommendations on the best footwear, followed by the complaint that anything comfortable tends to look extremely plain and, to be frank, ugly. And because none of our heroes have a minute of time to be scouring the internet for the comfiest, most stylish ways to cover their feet, this list is for them.
Send them a pair or two and they're bound to be grateful — we won't judge if you're tempted to get yourself a matching set, too. Alcohol can be super high in calories depending on the drink, so try some low-calorie drinks that won't make you feel like you've betrayed your diet! If you're anything like me, you like to throw back a few adult beverages every once in a while, but you also cringe when you look at the calorie content on the cocktail menu!
I love food and I hate the thought of wasting my calories on drinks, even alcoholic ones. I also am not a fan of light beers so I decided to do some searching and find the perfect cocktails with no guilt attached. Like most women, I dread trying on swimwear.
It's an unpleasant time of the year I often try to avoid until the inevitable beach day with friends is planned, after which I reluctantly scour the internet for something flattering yet stylish. Nothing ruins a nice day in the sun with friends like feeling massively uncomfortable, and the options available in swimwear can oftentimes be dismal, to say the least. One of the first things I always notice is the incredible lack of size inclusivity in swimwear.
Of course, it exists everywhere, but in swimwear, it's especially apparent. This year, people are embracing and are thankful for the great outdoors and simple beauty of nature than ever before. Whether you're planning on hitting up your best friend's pool the second quarantine is lifted in your area, or you just want to look like an absolute Queen hanging out on your back porch alone, these suits have got you covered metaphorically, of course.
While no one loves this new way of life we're adjusting to, it's the necessity that will eventually help us fling open our front doors and frolic freely once again! Premature thinking? But while we're in the midst of this quarantine time, we're chatting about the most terrifying, the funniest, and the weirdest thing that quarantine has forced us into recently. It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information.
My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.
While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary. While the rest of us are home on our phones, healthcare workers are on the coronavirus COVID front line every single day. They see what we read snippets of, quickly gaining the perspective that we couldn't fathom. That's why we're going to the root of the information — these healthcare workers who put their own safety at risk every single day.
Today, I sat down virtually with Blakelynn Sherouse, a labor and delivery nurse in Ridgecrest, California. How long have you been a nurse? Currently, we are screening all patients, visitors, and staff for signs of infection and exposure, from the time they enter the premises. Everyone has their temperature taken and is asked a variety of questions based on possible symptoms and exposure to those testing positive. We have a tent setup outside of our ER to manage our "surge," even though we pray to never see it.
In regard to direct patient care, we are requiring every patient and visitor to wear surgical masks or homemade cloth face coverings.
If we were to have a person under investigation or a positive result, our protocol involves isolating the patient in a specific room designed for "airborne precautions" so that those in the surrounding area are not exposed through breathing the same air.
As for my unit, we have an extra doctor on call as our "dirty doctor. As of right now, my hospital is keeping a close eye on those that may be exposed and begin to show symptoms. Employee health records and keeps in communication with the nurses in contact with patients under investigation and positive cases. If one was to begin showing symptoms we can contact our employee health nurse. If we match the criteria, we are scheduled for a drive-through test.
We are then to self isolate at home and cannot return to work while waiting for the result. Once the result is released — from my understanding and discussing with coworkers — we are to self-isolate at home for two weeks, no matter what that result is. Thankfully, we have yet to have a nurse come back with a positive result.
However, we've had many that have had paid time off drained because they are required to isolate after they've been tested. Yes, thankfully we do. My hospital has been blessed and cursed through this ordeal. We are a rural hospital in the middle of the desert that is two hours away from the next bigger hospital, so we see a wide range of patients on a daily basis. One of our main functions is scheduled surgeries. We rely heavily on our outpatient procedures and have patients commute hours for treatment.
Sadly those operations have been shut down because of this crisis. The hospital has much less buzz around it recently — it's eerie. However, on the other hand, my hospital has been preparing for any possible surge of patients. We've had time to stock up on necessary supplies, like PPE. While I'm sad to know that nurses are not getting their full-time hours because of our decreased patient load, I'm also thankful we are not pushed beyond our limits at this point.
The biggest change day-to-day during this crisis has definitely been more the impact on my patients and their families. Having a baby is not only an extremely joyful time, but it can also be a very painful and stressful event for some mommas. It has been taxing having to explain why we are only allowing one support person with our patients.
And even after delivery, that person can't go home — they have to stay for the entire hospital stay. Through this whole thing, I've tried to stay closer to my patients when I can. Whether I chart in the room or just spend a little extra time talking with the patient and her support person, I feel like it helps if they know that I'm not only their nurse but also another support person that's there for the two of them and their baby.
It's funny — since we live in a valley because I've always called this place a "fishbowl. I frequently go back and forth. I believe there's a lot of good information and a lot of misinformation still. At the beginning of all this, I definitely leaned to the side of skepticism. I kind of blew it off as " like a flu. And then New York was hit and I was honestly terrified.
I think the news and media coverage have a way of sometimes building up a lot of things, but I also think it made people realize how real this crisis is. I still stand by the rule to check your sources and take everything you hear with a grain of salt, whether that information is coming to you from a local news station or our federal government.
I wish the country would realize that this isn't a "one and done" sort of thing. We are in this for the long haul. I agree, it really sucks being stuck at home being in quarantine, however, this virus will not go away on its own. It doesn't have an end date or an expiration — it's a virus, a pathogen. It will decide when it wants to get stronger — which we've now seen — or weaker.
The best thing we can do is try to contain it ourselves by washing up and staying home as much as possible, and YES that means even when the stay at home orders are loosened.
My parents are on the other side of the country right now, in Georgia. They are seeing a totally different side to this story than I am. Their governor has opened a lot of places while California still has strict shutdown orders. I am currently in the process of selling their house here in California and it's hard to sell a house when no one can leave theirs to come see yours, so that complicates things.
Personally, I think overall my stress levels have increased because of this crisis. A simple trip to the grocery store has turned into mapping out my route through the frozen and produce aisles and making sure I have my mask, while remembering to stay six feet away from everyone. I have seen some beautiful deliveries during this time when two people bring a beautiful life into the world and they have a moment to bask in their togetherness.
I think that is really what we all need to take away from this — enjoy the togetherness even when we are apart. Call your family, Facetime, enjoy having your kids home. My mom always said, "Blakelynn, don't blink when you have kids, they grow up that fast. Get to know your loved ones again.

A few disclaimers: yes, I'm aware that this list is pretty much the grossest to anyone who hate-clicked on it. I'm also aware that it is super heteronormative — we have an article about " little ways you know you have a good girlfriend " as well, for what it's worth. Additionally, most of the items on this list are just things that make you a good partner, period. I think that many of the traits that we say distinguish a good boyfriend or partner, or man, or whichever word you prefer are often considered "normal" traits in a woman. All that said, I also don't think that doesn't mean the boyfriends out there who are doing it right don't deserve to be called out for being awesome. The fact of the matter is, men still aren't socialized to be as emotive , communicative, or giving in relationships as women might be. If you're fortunate enough to be dating a man who's using his actions and words to flip that script, well, then, I think that's something worth celebrating, perhaps even to the point of being a bit saccharin. So, without further disclaimer, here are 45 little ways you know you have a good boyfriend , at least in my limited experience.
