Review: Do Not Answer M. Night Shyamalan’s “Knock At The Cabin”

Typically I would warn readers about upcoming spoilers for a review such as this, but the entire premise of Knock at the Cabin is the spoiler.

Migraines And Dating: How It Feels To Date Someone Who Cares

“I get it now.” It was four magic words said to me by my then-boyfriend. We’d been living together for only a few weeks before I had a massive level-10 migraine. I looked like death.

Have you ever experienced abuse where only you were the only one who knew it was abuse? You may have experienced “dog whistling,” a covert form of abuse that is intended to strategically disorient the victim while escaping accountability.

How To Stop Stressing Over Your Relationships

One of the biggest relationship mistakes I see women make is stressing over their relationship, whether it’s in the dating stage or in a more established relationship.
