Gatsby Premiere Stunner : Nina Dobrev

Talk about beautiful! Nina Dobrev looked amazing and totally on point for the premiere of Gatsby. Versace sure knows how to make a dress – as if we didn’t know that already.

8 Tips for Long Distance Relationships

So you accidentally fell in love with someone from a different state? Great. I’ve been there….and let me state the painfully obvious – it’s not easy and most of the time it doesn’t work out. You don’t care though! You’re in loveeee. Here’s a list of tips to make things easier. And hey, long distance worked out for my hairstylist and her husband!

1. SKYPE – Skype is going to be your new BFF4L right now. I can’t stress this enough! If by some twist of fate you don’t have Skype, GET IT NOW! It is the only chance you have of making this crap work. Get creative too! Cook dinner together, watch a movie, etc etc. You can still have date nights when you aren’t in the same place!

2. Talk Daily – Duh. This should be an obvious must for every relationship. Call, text, email, whatevs – just do something. If you aren’t talking, something ain’t right. Living in different places with a totally different set of friends, you might not always have a ton to talk about. Try reading a book at the same and having a mini book club.

3. Be Committed – Again, need I say DUH? If you can’t see yourself with this person forever, time to bounce player. It’s not worth the agony. Once you’re past the age of twenty (or just tired of dealing with B.S.), it’s a good idea to apply this to any romantic relationship. Maybe I’m just anal, but life’s too short to waste your time! Also, if you live in the same state don’t be lazy! You can drive to each other on the weekends or meet each other halfway somewhere for a weekend get-away. Having dated someone from Boston for over a year, the whole Tulsa to Oklahoma City “long distance” relationship is hilarious. USE YOUR CARS, PEOPLE.

4. Save your $$$$ - That $200 dress you want to buy? Bye. You need to save that stuff for plane tickets, my friend! They are expensiveee – especially when you have to fly to a major airport BEFORE you can fly to your love’s hometown. And you shouldn’t be the only one spending your hard earned cash. If your lover can’t come see you as much as you see them, talk about going halfsies on plane tickets. Hint: It’s cheaper to fly on Tuesdays and American is almost always the cheapest. Get a frequent flyer card ASAP!

5.  Still have a Life – Omg, what if he calls when you’re doing something and you don’t get to talk to him for a whole 12 more hours? What if he thinks you’re out running around with other guys? What if he gets mad at you for not answering? WHO CARES. If he honestly gets pissed about that, it’s probably because he’s out being a whore. Someone should have told me this. Yes, you want to make time for your long distance guy…but no, you don’t want to sit around for hours waiting for him to call. You can bet your life he’ll be out having fun with his friends on the weekends too, and planning your entire routine around a guy isn’t cute.

6.  Try to Trust - This is what will ultimately make or break your relationship, especially when you’re dealing with distance. Let’s be real, your significant other is miles (maybe even thousands!) away. You really don’t know what the hell they are doing with any certainty, which is why it’s so important to be with someone you not only love, but trust completely. That is a really hard thing to do and the distance will mess with both of your heads. Just remember something so obnoxious but so true: what’s meant to be will be. And trust me, you’ll find out if he’s lying…even if he’s 1000 miles away. The worst thing that can happen is to find out he’s saying the same shit to other girls that he is to you. Then, in a nutshell, you say byeee and roll out. No, it’s not even half that easy but it’s easier than wondering “what if” forever, because sometimes it does work out.

7. Don’t Get Engaged Yet - He has you circle diamond rings in jewelry catalogs worthy of Kim Kardashian. He asks you to marry him every single day. You know he already has a ring. DON’T ACCEPT IT YET. Until you’re in the same place, you really don’t know the dude (no matter how much you think you do). If you survive the horror that is long distance and move in together, that’s when you’ll really know it’s real. Do yourself a huge favor and make sure it’s as great as you think it is. Don’t be that girl that gets engaged on a whim in a whirl-wind romance…and then isn’t engaged five months later. Again, not cute. Think it through.

8. Listen to your Family & Friends - I always resisted this one, probably because my friends and family were always the voice of reason – which was exactly the voice I didn’t want to hear. The people we love can be hard on our choices in guys/girls but a lot of the time they actually know what they’re talking about. Okay, most of the time. Seriously, if every single one of your friends and family members is like, “I don’t know/You don’t seem like you/You’re different/What’s wrong/He’s controlling you/Dump him/I’m going to rip his dick off”…probably strong indicators that this isn’t the one for you. On the other hand, if they absolutely adore the guy, you should probably propose to him on the spot like this is a Sadie Hawkins’ dance!

K, bye!
