By Lauren Carney

Relationships are tough, especially when you’re new to dating. And while no one is perfect, some relationship blunders *are* bigger than others. Here’s how to bounce back if you slipped and, well, things tumbled. Consider it like burning sage for those unfortunate GF moments.


THE HITCH: You freaked if they didn’t text back ASAP. You fumed when they hung out with their crew instead of you. You held them to impossible standards…and they finally decided to walk away for good.

WHAT NOW: Sorry, but your bae was not put on Earth to fulfill your every relationship wish. It might be time to adjust your expectations. Sure, someone you’re dating should be sweet to you but you also need to give them space and let them have their own life—the way you have yours. Oh, and if you’re feeling hot-headed? Take a few deep breaths and ask yourself if it’s worth sending this frown-face text—or if you can be happy that your +1 is having fun with their friends? Thought so.
