6 Tips on How to Find Out that Your Relationship is Really Serious

Nobody wants to spend time on relationships that will end in a month. How do you know when things are getting real? Check out these 6 signs that your romantic relationship is really serious.

Its okay to have different likes and interests

The same hobbies and interests are often considered a sign of genuine intimacy between people in love, but this is not always the case. Your understanding that your values and perspectives may not match is much more important. If a loved one is busy with something without you, and you are OK with it, this is a sign of mutual trust. If you tried to introduce your partner to your hobby, and this idea did not work out, but you still respect each other – this is a sign of a mature relationship.

You don’t try to change each other

We all think, react to events, solve problems, and behave in everyday life differently. Another person will inevitably do something in a way different from you, your parents, or a former partner. And it does not mean that you need to change him or her.

Sometimes it is worthwhile to put yourself in the place of your BF or GF in order to understand how important things that seem insignificant to you are to them. The more eccentric interests a partner has, the challenging it will be to date him or her. If you are old enough to use dating apps, you can see these the online dating profile pictures of a person and tell what they are into.

In the so-called Gestalt prayer, written by Fritz Perls, there are the following lines: “I’m not in the world to live up to your expectations, and you aren’t in the world to live up to mine. You are you, and I am I, and if we find each other by chance, it’s beautiful.”

You have the same basic values

Personal characteristics and different interests are not a problem, but there are some global issues that can become a stumbling block in a romantic relationship. They can refer to where to live (for example, one loves cities, and the other dreams of a farm life), whether to have children and pets, or how to build relationships in general (perhaps you want a traditional family, and your partner – an open relationship).

For some people, religious, political, or other ideological issues are fundamental. Relations with a person who shares a different ideology can be quite passionate but full of conflicts, and so they are unlikely to last long.

Your conversations aren’t all about you

Stories like “how I spent the day” are rarely fascinating. However, sincere sympathy and interest can transform even the most ordinary things into something amazing. If you can actually listen patiently without getting aggravated and wanting t talk only about YOU this is one of the sure signs that your relationship is serious.

What was it like for your BF or GF growing up? How did she get that littel scar on her eyebrow? What does he think about this or that news? If you are not interested in such things, this is a warning sign. If a partner does not listen to your stories and never asks for your opinion, then you are unlikely to be an important part of his or her life.

You are ready to accept help and afford assistance

Self-sufficient people have the most successful and happy relationships. But sometimes we all need the support of loved ones. For some people, especially those who were brought up on the belief that complaining and crying are shameful, it is difficult to open up and ask for help. However, if you really trust someone, you can do it.

The same goes for helping the other person. If you love them and your relationship is serious, you are ready to go above and beyond for them.

You know their family

If you are familiar with each other’s mother and dad, this is quite a serious sign of a long and serious relationship. Now, there are some people who acquaint parents with ALL their dates. But as a rule, this is a gesture of trust. Also, it’s important not only that you are acquainted with the family of your loved one but also how it was done. The accidental meeting does not count — it should be something more formal, like a dinner, when its serious.

5 Fast Facts with celebrity interviewer Tyler Boronski

Tyler Boronski is a multimedia reporter that has covered professional athletes and celebrities for the last 5 years, including actors and YouTubers/Social Media Influencers Tana Mongeau, Timothy DeLaGhetto, Mark Dohner, and Brandon Routh for his YouTube channel. His sports coverage hasled him to be featured on ESPN, NBC Sports, and SB Nation.

He also acts a bit, having worked on Netflix’s Stranger Things, FX’s Atlanta, and a short indy film called The Adventures of Penny Patterson.

Here’s 5 fast facts about Tyler!

He once took viewers behinds the scenes of a reporter’s life.

My favorite piece of content I’ve published is a video called “Day in the Life | NBA G-League.” I had a videographer follow me around for the day and we were able to show what it’s like when I’m credentialed at a sporting game/event. I was happy with how much we were able to show from the behind the scenes of my interview with Orlando Magic’s Amile Jefferson to my interactions with media personnel throughout the day.

David Dobrik is his inspiration.

David Dobrik is someone I admire in the digital content space. I’m really impressed with his editing and how fast-pace all his videos are. He is able to fit so much entertaining content in such a small-time window (4:20). You are always wanting more and waiting until he posts again, which is why his fanbase is as strong as it is. He’s on the top of my list to interview one day so hopefully we can make that happen soon!

He totally whiffed it in front of over 100 people and VIPs.

I’m not sure if embarrassing is the right word. However, my first time I ever did a studio presentation at my college, I was awful (Dan Patrick School of Sportscasting at Full Sail University). I was doing highlights for a Celtics-Lakers game and was terrible since I didn’t know what I was doing (trust me I’m much better now!). The crazy part was that it was in front of famed-sportscaster Dan Patrick, my instructors, classmates, a bunch of business executives, and livestreamed online to 100+ people. Definitely a memorable first introduction to performing in a studio.

He enjoys plucking strings.

I play the ukulele! When I moved to Florida a couple years ago, I decided I wanted to pick up a new instrument. The ukulele is the best because of how easily portable it is. I love bringing it wherever I travel.  

His least favorite food almost caused us to not run this interview out of shock. HOW COULD YOU NOT LIKE THIS????

I absolutely dislike Sour Cream and Onion Chips! You can ask anyone I went to high school with haha. I’ve always thought they tasted gross and not sure why so many people like them.







5 Fast Facts about actress Clarissa Camacho

Clarissa Camacho is a teen actress, model, and singer. 

When she’s not working, she’s raising awareness on multiple social issues. She’s very passionate about making the world a better place, and helping the people around her. 

Here’s 5 fast facts about Clarissa!

She really digs showbiz.

Working in the industry in general has been a gift. I absolutely love what I do. Working with actors like myself, and creating content is such a joy. I also absolutely adore making characters, because I get to think outside of the box, and force myself to get as creative as possible. I can’t help but also acknowledge the love and support I receive from my family. They always visit on set, and make personal, amazing memories with me there. I can’t imagine myself ever going into another profession

Her biggest inspiration is America Ferrera.

America Ferrera. I love her as an individual, and equally as an actress. America is fearless and uses her platform for the better good. Since I was a child, I’ve known I wanted to be a performer. I never saw anyone on TV with my dark pigmentation and untamable Latina hair, so I always thought maybe I didn’t belong on tv, or in movies.

Then one day, I passed by her on TV; she was speaking Spanish in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. My 5-year-old self idolized her, I finally had a little more faith in my dreams. The person, the ethnicity, and the community America Fererra represents, is amazing.

She put her bodily fluids on Anne Hathaway once.

The first time I met Anne Hathaway was a HUGE embarrassment, I cried like…. a….lot. Can you blame me? Anne Hathaway is like a goddess. I never get starstruck when I work with celebrities, but I kept hearing I Dreamed a Dream in my head when she talked haha.

Shortly after bawling in her presence, she offered to hug me. I was like gosh darn, I’m getting snot on my idol, on her gorgeous designer dress! However, she assured me that she had the same reaction with Meryl Streep, so she was honored. Anne, if you ever read this…I love you.

She has activism in her blood.

I’m actually a huge activist. My grandfather was a Bracero in the 1940’s “[A Bracero is] a Mexican laborer allowed into the US for a limited time as a seasonal agricultural worker.” – Oxford. Fatherless, my grandfather wanted to provide a better life for his children, “the American Dream” if you will. I’ve always been extremely proud of my roots… I am here, because of my grandfathers hard work, and dedication to a better future. He picked in cotton/fruit/ fields for a long portion of his adolescence. The hot, scorching sun, lack of water, and proper care came with the downfall of constant battles with skin cancer, and overall health. The poor conditions he lived in are recorded at the Smithsonian Museum, where he was also featured in their magazine (about life in the Bracero camps). If you talk to my grandfather about life working the fields, he’ll shed a single tear, but insist he wouldn’t change his life for the world.

Therefore, I have made it a point to fight for others like my grandfather. To speak out for the workers, and immigrants who have no voice. Immigrants believe abuse and racism is the cost of their migration. The racism my grandparents endured, should never be felt by any other human being.

She’s a little scary when talking about Hot Cheetos.

I’m absolutely addicted to Hot Cheetos. It’s not exactly a food, but to my other Cheeto-obsessed friends, y’all know Cheetos can become a meal real quick. My older sister, Victoria introduced me to Hot Cheetos straight out of the womb. When we were kids, we used to eat whole bags daily. Our parents constantly tried to get rid of them, but we always found a way….especially since there was a gas station down the street. After the countless days of stomachaches, and countless gallons of milk I’ve consumed, I’ve definitely lowered my intake of Hot Cheetos.  However, I will never stop eating them haha.

How about a few selfies?

Hello Madelyn, before we get to your role in the Dora and the Lost City of Gold, tell us a little about yourself outside of show biz.

I’m now in 5th grade and its my last year in elementary school. I love spending time with my family and my favorite things to do are shopping and looking for new hair styles.

Great! Now tell us what it was like at the premiere of your movie and seeing yourself on the big screen?

The premiere was so much fun. Having fans call out my name and wanting my autograph and picture was so exciting. Seeing myself on the big screen for the first time brought back a lot of fun memories filming in Australia. It was pretty amazing seeing my face fill up the screen.

What was your favorite part about filming Dora?

My favorite part about filming Dora was the set of Dora’s house. My room was so cool, It was on top of a lake. Also being able to film in the mountains of Australia was really awesome.

And what was the hardest part about it?

I can’t remember anything hard about filming, all the cast and crew were super nice. I would say having to cut my hair was the only hard part about playing Dora.

Tell me something people would be surprised to know about you?

I think people would be surprised to know that I love riding my quad off road

Where is your family from originally and what are you most proud of about your Hispanic heritage?

My family is originally from Mexico. And I’m most proud of how we value family so much. And Mexican food! LoL

Biggest pet peeve?

My biggest pet peeve is when people aren’t clean while eating.

Favorite subject in school and why?

My favorite subject in school is writing because I get to make up my own stories.

Favorite food?

My favorite food is street tacos.

Least favorite food?

My least favorite food is cheesy chips.

What do you and your brother David most compete or argue about?

My brother and I argue about everything! One time we argued about how many gums you can fit in your mouth. But at the end of the day we usually sleep together 🙂

If you could pass a law everyone in the world had to follow, what would it be? If I can pass a law it would be no homework!

If I can pass a law it would be no homework!

Favorite YouTuber?

My favorite YouTuber is SSSniperWolf

What else are you working on or have coming up next?

I’m currently going out on some great auditions and hopefully I will have some good news to share soon.

How To Surprise Your Crush For Sweet 16

Choosing a birthday gift for a friend can be a daunting task, and just imagine how nerve-racking it can be to choose the ideal gift for a girl or boy that you have a crush on–especially when it’s an important one like Sweet 16!

This is the time when teens start to transition into adulthood, and it is vital to commemorate that special moment with something unique that celebrates this moment. To narrow down your quest, here are some ideas for a perfect gift which would certainly surprise your crush for Sweet 16 while giving them a few hints as to how you feel.

Give a musical gift

Text your crush early in the morning on the day of her birthday to come to a place with significance, like the place you two first hung out. Then play or sing his or her favorite song, or one which you guys heard the first time here. End off by gifting a pair of tickets for a live show of the band or singer of the song next time they are in town. The condition: he or she must take you with them!

A sweet delight for a sweet someone

Everyone adores chocolate. And you can get a box of chocolate with special carvings. Many producers can carve anything you desire on the chocolate, or print on the paper wrap. A box of chocolates with personalized wrappers with nice wishes for Sweet 16 is a really original and surprising idea. Basically, you can have her/his name or lyrics to a favorite song written. For an even greater wow effect, you can get a bouquet of donuts. This gift might not last for eternity, but it will surely be a unique present.

A symbol of eternity

Many girls eagerly await their sweet 16 to be cherished and pampered all day. If you want to give a girl a present she would absolutely love and hold on to forever, then you had better go with jewelry. Jewelry will last for a lifetime and is a great way to symbolize your affection for that special someone. You can go for a cute bracelet, nice pearl earrings, or find beautiful silver infinity necklace which symbolizes love, empowerment and eternity. Since this costs $$$, make sure this person is worth it and has hinted at maybe having the same feelings.

A gift that enlivens his or her dreams

Once you turn sixteen, there will be numerous things that you start dreaming of. Every teen has a passion, so if your crush wants to be an artist, get him or her a white canvas and paint. If she wants to explore the world, get her a journal to plan her travel destinations. Encourage him/her to follow her dreams rather than make this all about YOU and your feelings.

An enticing book

Not many teens like to read physical books compared with a phone these days, but giving the right book to someone special shows you know their interests and is very flattering. If you want to honestly surprise your crush, knowing what they like to read and finding the book they want can definitely make them feel goosebumps. Getting an enticing and riveting book instead of a mug or clothes takes courage, but it can undoubtedly pay off.

If you put an effort into choosing the gift and truly do your best to find the most memorable present, your crush will know how to appreciate it. Keep his or her personality in mind and you will be on the right track and avoid cringey moments.

3 Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Gap Year

Many high school students are deciding to delay their college education for a year in order to take a gap year. There are many reasons for people to opt for a gap year, and there is no right or wrong way to do it. Whether you are looking to travel or just get a head start on your educational and career aspirations, this time to regroup can prove to be extremely beneficial before launching into your next educational journey. Here are three tips designed to help you get the most out of your gap year:

Job Tips

Many students decide to use their gap year to get ahead on their finances before heading into college. Paid internships are an ideal way to make some extra cash while gaining relevant work experience. If you have your heart set on a particular out-of-state school but want to gain the coveted in-state tuition status, getting a job in that state will help you to achieve residency status and qualify for the lower rates.

Traveling Tips

While some students use the gap year to prepare for college, many enjoy traveling and seeing the world. This travel time helps teenagers to mature and gain more life experience before going to college. Before you take off on your global adventure, it is important to be prepared for the logistics of travel. While some places will rent a car to 18-year-olds, these rentals usually come with a separate fee. It is important that you take care of your rental car so that you do not incur even more costs.

Mindset Tips

It is possible that you will never again have the freedom in life that you have during this gap year. To make the most out of this flexibility, be sure to go into the experience with an open mind. Having an open mind will allow you to truly embrace the people and cultures that you encounter along the way. Whether it be through traveling the world or simply settling into the place that you plan on attending college, this time should be free of rigid parameters that you set on yourself.This gap year can be a great time for you to explore a new place, earn some money for your further education, or find a cause to champion. Make sure that you experience all that this gap year has to offer you in order to make the most out of it. But at the same time, make sure that you do all you can to prepare and pay for for the next four years of your college career.

Gaming May Not Be As Useless As Your Dad Claims

If you like to play video games, you’re probably no stranger to your dad complaining about how they’re a waste of time. Today, video games are so commonplace that they appear in many different forms, from mobile apps to VR headsets to handheld consoles. Whether you are searching for the top games of the year or nostalgic classics from the ‘80s, the truth is that video games have not only made a huge impact on society in entertainment value but also in the skills they are able to impart. Here are some of the useful skills video games can help you to develop.

Problem Solving

Believe it or not, playing Zelda games can actually accomplish more than just exploring all of Hyrule. Puzzle games like Ubisoft games and basically all Zelda games train the brain to find creative solutions to complex problems. Research suggests that popular mainstream games such as Call of Duty, League of Legends, and StarCraft can help improve the gamers’ problem-solving skills, attention span, and hand-eye coordination.

Job Preparation

Developing hand-eye coordination skills, better attention span, and problem-solving skills can be advantageous in any workplace. Different jobs may require skills that games can teach such as spatial orientation, information gathering, and better reaction time to emergency situations. According to L3HARRIS, airlines and overland freight companies routinely use simulators to train their workforce. Commercial airline pilots are required to practice emergency procedures in flight simulators and are required to pass a simulator assessment every six months. In addition, technology such as augmented reality made popular by Pokémon Go has already made its way into the workplace of engineering, manufacturing, and production jobs.

Stay Fit

Many professionally competitive gamers have been warned that staying fit is essential to maintain their game skills and reaction speed. Just as there are games to cover many subjects, there are games that can help improve fitness. According to Axtion Tech, activity-based games such as Just Dance and Dance Dance Revolution can provide a great workout. In addition, virtual reality activity games such as boxing, fencing, and speed skating can also provide intensive exercise.

Gaming as a teen is not a useless hobby. More and more people are recognizing the positive attributes that can be developed in a healthy gamer. You’ve just got to make sure to balance gaming with other things in your life. Gone are the days when games and gamers belong at the nerdy table. Contrary to what your dad may think, they can actually be quite useful.

5 Fast Facts about actor Travis Bryant

Travis Bryant is an American actor who you might recognize from the CW’s supernatural series Legacies or Nickelodeon’s The Adventures of Kid Danger, BET’s American Soul, YouTube RED’s digital series Weird City, as well as Sofia the First as fan-favorite character Tyler in Season 4.

His latest is the faith-based film ‘Breakthrough’ starring Marcel Ruiz, Topher Grace, and Chrissy Metz which just became available on BluRay and DVD on July 16th and can also be found on most digital platforms for download and purchase. He also resumes shooting on Legacies in Atlanta soon.

Here’s 5 fast facts about Travis!

His show was nominated for a Teen Choice Award.

Honestly being a part of two projects that I’ve been passionate about for the past two years and seeing them both get the recognition they deserve, as well as to be so well received by the fans to be nominated for #TeenChoiceAwards is pretty rewarding in itself. 

There is one kindergarten lesson which still holds true for him today.

The golden rule: treat others the way you wish to be treated. I’m a huge believer in energy and I believe that the energy we put out in the world has a unique way of finding its way back to us in a full circle kind of way. So simply putting kindness and positivity in the world is the most efficient way to receive it back and I’d try to exemplify that in my actions and in everything that I do. 

He’s the guy you always complain about regarding texting.

For as often as I am on my phone, I suck at texting a response to people. My friends, my costars, and even my family is always getting onto me about how I need to be better at replying to people’s messages. 

Be flexible and do what you say if you want to be his pal.

Hypocrisy and people who are unwilling to change are both kinda tied up there in my top 2 pet peeves but they also go hand in hand with each other. 

One food he refuses to eat is ___?

Octopus, thank u next. 


5 Fast Facts about Country Singer-Songwriter Queeva

15year-old up-and-coming songstress QUEEVA has released her first album How Do You Know on July 12. She co-wrote every track on the album with mentor and hit songwriter Jamie O’Neal, who is also credited as producer of the album.

Born in Chicago, IL, QUEEVA was raised with five siblings in a creative Irish clan speaking both Gaelic and English and dividing her time between the US and Ireland. In fact, her name, sometimes spelled Caoimhe, means, “gentle,” “beautiful” or “precious” in that language.  Early on, QUEEVA gravitated to Country music’s greatest storyteller-artists who were skilled in illumining their everyday experiences in a song.

In addition to music, she’s also appeared on Nickelodeon’s Fresh Faces, Chicago Fire, a Build-a-Bear commercial, and others.

Here’s 5 fast facts about Queeva.

Although she is very young, one of her songs reflects deep personal loss.

My song “You’re Still Here” had a big impact on me because I wrote that song when I was 9 years old and I wrote it about my aunt that had passed away who was really special to me. It was just really hard because it would bring that memory back that she wasn’t there. Then when I rerecorded it, that is when my grandma passed away so it was really hard for me but I’m really glad with how the song turned out. It has a really special place in my heart because I think of them whenever I play it.

The most surprising thing she experienced while recording the album is ________

I think being surprised on how cool and different each song on the album turned out and when you get in the studio and you bring a song that you’ve written and seeing how it comes to life is so cool.

One of her acting gigs was surreal.

I guess you could say one of the weirdest things was when I was on Chicago Fire (well, it’s not weird but it was weird to me because I wasn’t used to it), but I had my own trailer and it had a star on it with my name and it had a bed, a fire place — it was just crazy! It was so cool!

She’s a former Irish dancer.

I was actually an Irish dancer for about four years. It was a lot of fun but I couldn’t really juggle everything I was doing at the same time so unfortunately I had to give it up. But yeah! Most people don’t know that about me!

There’s one treat she loves above all others.

I love ice cream. Like all day every day I could eat it. It’s just so good! I really love ice cream. Ha!

 “Spending time with my siblings and swimming!”
