Hit or Miss: Single Girlfriend

Business trips are way more fun when you’re the one on the road than when you’re stuck holding fort at home, right? Although being separated for a while can spice up a relationship, it can just as well lead to awkward bullshit and tear you apart. Success lies in your attitude… so here are some tips on how to be a super awesome single girlfriend:

HIT: Love sexting is ok. Snap saucy pics on the daily to remind your man of what he’s got.

MISS: Go overboard on an Insta rampage and inadvertently let out a nipple slip.

35% of Americans, particularly iPhone users, have online regrets.

HIT: Adjust your World Clock on your phone to keep track of the time difference, so you don’t hit him up at 4 in the am when he’s catching some sleep.

MISS: Worry if you don’t hear from him as much as when he’s in town. Remember, trust and confidence is sexy. He’s just busy.

HIT: Get some work done and focus on being productive. Reorganize the kitchen or the closet. Dive into past due accounting.

MISS: Fall into the bored trap and feel like you have to go out drinking every night.

HIT: Use this time apart to catch up with girlfriends you usually don’t have time to spend with when you’re in the love zone.

MISS: Step on his turf and hang out with his friends because they remind you of him.

HIT: Go lingerie shopping and surprise him with a new kit when you pick him up at the airport or greet him at the door.

MISS: The obvious: forget to shave your legs and spend two weeks looking like a bear.

HIT: Get a plush animal so you’re not sleeping alone.

MISS: Send him pics of you and the plush animal… unless he asks for it!

This week, I’m leaning into love. Love for literature and one of its most brilliant minds. Love for our First Lady who feels like family instead of political royalty. Love for Common, a man whose trademark creative impulse shines on an unofficial remix of “Cranes in the Sky.”
