I was chec king out at the grocery store and happened to glance at a People magazine. Plastered across its cover was the bare and bruised face of Johnny Depp’s wife. The headline read, “Inside Their Toxic Marriage: Jealousy, fights and accusations of violence.” The lady behind me in line must have seen the same thing and muttered aloud, “Where have all the good guys gone?” I was passing by a table of men seated in a restaurant and overheard them using obscene language as they discussed the young waitress serving them.
The men all laughed as they objectified a human being. Making my way back to my table I continued to observe the situation as the waitress returned. Her customers made some remark and I watched as her face changed completely. She flashed a sunken look at the ground as if to say, "Where have all the good guys gone?" This is not a valid email, please try again. Two teenage girls were walking along the sidewalk, eager to arrive at their first high school dance.
They passed a man twice their age who catcalled at them. Both confused and disgusted, the one girl asked her friend, “Where have all the good guys gone?” I was scrolling past posts on Facebook and one caught my eye. It was a Buzfeed article containing a letter that a sexual assault victim wrote to her rapist. The letter detailed her entire heart wrenching experience.
I read on, finding out that the rapist walked away with only several months of jail time while his victim would forever affected by the event. Fed up with everything and overcome with anger and frustration, I finally blurted out, "Where have all the good guys gone!?" “Where have all the good guys gone?” That is the very question that pervades deeply among the women of our generation as we see case after case of abuse and harassment on the news, in our schools and for some, in our homes.
Our brains are wired to ask, “Where have all the good guys gone?” knowing perfectly well that there is no answer. Our belief in this unanswerable question reinforces the idea that there really aren’t any more good guys out there. We accept things the way they are and move on with our lives, settling for the first guy who makes us feel “special” even if he jokingly calls us a whore and makes other sexual jokes about us to his friends.
At least he sends us a good morning text, right? We may only consider him just an “OK guy,” but that’s fine because “good guys” only exist in the movies. men who spend their Friday evenings praying outside a strip club, facing hateful language, threats and customers who spit upon them all because they believe the women inside are worth so much more men who had been working for three months to surprise my girlfriends and I with a three course dinner which they prepared and served themselves men just like my dear friend who bought a corsage for a girl because she had no date to prom, and drove 45 minutes just to drop it off at her house just as any gentleman would do men just like my father who chooses to give everything he has and everything he is every day to serve the needs of his wife and kids.
and many more men just like the aforementioned. Not only are these good guys, but more than that, they are great men. I believe that us women are constantly asking the question, "Where have all the good guys gone?" because we let the bad overshadow the good. We grow exceedingly impatient and give up on the good guys that truly are out there.
However, I beg of you, please, please, please do not give up because I swear that there are great men out there — men who know exactly what a beautiful masterpiece you are, men who are willing to fight in order to uphold your dignity, men who treat you the way you are meant to be treated. Remember, so long as there are women believing these men are out there, great men will continue to exist.
The moment we as women lower our standards, our men will begin to fall. If we instead raise our standards to a new level, these men will recognize the challenge placed before them and work to meet it. Dear Boyfriend , Thank you for being my best friend. When we’re together, we’re always laughing and joking around. I always have fun with you, and time flies when we’re together.
You’re the first person I want to talk to when anything major happens, whether it be good or bad, and you’re always there for me. You always know just what to say or do to cheer me up, and just being around you puts me in a better mood. I’d be devastated if our relationship ended, because in losing you, I’d be losing one of my best friends.
Thank you for telling me I’m wrong. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, thank you for braving my anger to give me a reality check. I may not want to hear it and I may lash out at you, but I hope you know I appreciate it. Thank you for making me feel beautiful. You’re constantly complimenting me, whether I’m dressed up or chillin’ in sweats.
You could care less whether or not I wear makeup or fix my hair because you’re going to tell me I’m beautiful either way. Seeing the way you smile at me is the best confidence boost there is.
This is not a valid email, please try again. Thank you for loving me when I’m unlovable. I know I get in horrible moods sometimes and treat you unfairly. Thank you for rolling with the punches and not getting angry at me. I appreciate your patience more than you realize. Thank you for surprising me.
Whether it be flowers, doughnuts, or something else, you’re constantly surprising me with little things that let me know you’re thinking about me. The little things you do, don’t go unnoticed.
Thank you for sharing your family with me. Your family treats me like I’m part of the family, and I love them like my own. They care about what you care about, and it’s obvious from their openness that they think I’m important to you. Thank you for making it obvious to me and everyone else that I’m a priority in your life. Thank you for being my plus one.
Family events, school dances, doctor appointments, or whatever the case may be. We come as a package deal, and others have come to expect it. I can’t go anywhere without someone asking why you’re not with me, and I smile every time. Thank you for taking care of me. You’re constantly watching out for me; you give me your jacket when I’m cold, you make me walk on the inside of the street, you check my car to make sure it’s working properly.
You’ve held my hand at the doctor’s office and brought me ice cream at 12:00 at night. You always seem to know what I need, even if I don’t realize it myself. Technically, this is not an article about the holidays.
Technically. I have been told multiple times that I should not write an article about the holidays, because everyone else is, and it's getting kind of overkill. This is not me writing about the holidays, this is me writing about that weird week between Christmas and New Years where are some really good sales. Not the same thing. This is me writing about some great makeup items to get yourself for that weird week between the holiday's that has nothing to do with the actual holidays.
A week that is also lovely because every store has amazing sales and even these are a bit pricey( for a college student at least), you might be able to get some great deals on them!
The Urban Decay Cherry Palette https://www.urbandecay.com/naked-cherry-eyeshadow-palette-urban-decay/ud927.html So, my mother got me this palette as an EARLY Christmas gift (not the holiday's, still), and I've been loving it. Sometimes using a palette with color is intimidating, but these colors are just natural enough. that it's still good for every day.
Also, it is so aesthetically pleasing to look at, so it's so worth it. It's fun to experiment with, and at $49, it's the perfect treat yourself price! Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer https://www.narscosmetics.com/USA/st.-moritz-pure-radiant-tinted-moisturizer-–-broad-spectrum-spf-30/0607845023142.html Okay, NARS ls expensive $45, but is SO WORTH IT.
I almost exclusively use this product, and I wear makeup almost every day and have for the last ten years. It's really lightweight, has great coverage, and comes in a fairly good variety of shades.
It's worth it, everyone. Trust me. Becca Shimmering Kin Perfector Pressed Highlighter https://www.beccacosmetics.com/product/22206/55561/highlighters/shimmering-skin-perfector-pressed-highlighter/becca-highlighter-high-impact-glow#!/shade/Champagne_Pop Okay, I like, really love highlighter. It's just really fun to be able to look in the mirror and see your cheekbones pop like they do when you use this highlighter. I've been using it for a while, and I always prefer powders to creams because it's a bit easier to control them.
Also, Chrissy Teigen has allied with Becca Cosmetics to make her own line of stuff, which I have not tried, but Chrissy won't steer you wrong. At $38, it's not even that bad. Trust me. It's worth it. MAC Creemsheen Lipstick https://www.maccosmetics.com/product/13854/36169/products/makeup/lips/lipstick/cremesheen-lipstick#/shade/Pure_Zen I have always loved MAC lipstick because it's all that my mother wears and she knows best.
This stuff is popular for a reason, it comes in a ton of shades, it comes in a variety of sheens, and it stays on amazingly. I almost exclusively wear this lipstick, and at only $18.50, it's barely at treat yourself level. Treat yourself to three different ones, to really do it right. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer https://www.anastasiabeverlyhills.com/products/brows/ Anastasia has a wide variety of products, but their brown products are in my opinion, their best by far.
I use this product every single day, even if I don't wear any other makeup, because it's so easy to use and good brows can make the world go around. This is an absolute need for anyone that wears makeup, anyone. It's only $23. Buy it, and explore the rest of their brow collection.

Recently-resigned Celebs Go Dating star Nadia Essex has claimed the show's bosses 'silenced her' after drama between her and former co-host Eden Blackman. The dating expert, 36, quit the E4 reality show this month - midway through shooting season five - after it was claimed she had created fake Twitter accounts in order to troll social media users. The alleged trolling came after stories concerning her and axed host Eden came out, for which Nadia received daily abuse and death threats on the micro-blogging site.
Trauma: Recently-resigned Celebs Go Dating star Nadia Essex has claimed the show's bosses 'silenced her' after she was subjected to 'bullying' by former co-host Eden Blackman She has exclusively told MailOnline that she was not 'trolling', merely 'defending herself against trolls' and that Celebs Go Dating producers at Lime Productions left her no other choice after they 'watched her like a hawk' following Eden's exit.
Elaborating on reports that Eden had allegedly struck up dalliances with participants on the series, Nadia told us in her latest statement: 'I saw [Eden's] WhatsApps during filming [before he left the show] and got continually more concerned that his behaviour was inappropriate and putting our credibility and the whole show in jeopardy. Share 'I was extremely concerned about how it would affect me professionally. I went to Lime and expressed more concern for women taking part on the show that I thought were being taken advantage of.
'I found the reaction from the producers utterly shocking as I was told I was fabricating the incidents and if I didn’t stop with the accusations my job was at risk. Ex-colleagues: The alleged trolling came after stories concerning her and axed host Eden [L] came out, for which Nadia received daily abuse and death threats on the micro-blogging site 'Fast forward four months and my accusations were proven to be correct.
I desperately wanted to have a statement released distancing myself from Eden's appalling behaviour. Not only was I silenced, I was told the channel were watching me like a hawk and if I didn’t comply my job was at risk. 'Because I wasn’t allowed to release a statement I started to get abusive messages raising questions why I wasn’t condemning his behaviour.
Eden was subsequently allowed to leave the show with his head held high, under the guise of needing to concentrate on other commitments.' Nadia - who was pictured last week outside at a cafe engaged in a teaful phone call after the recent dramas - went on to explain: 'I now realise that my reactions were poorly judged but believing this was a way that I could speak the truth. 'It’s clear to see by everyone the difference in treatment between myself and Eden [who was never] given a warning or suspension - whereas I was thrown to the wolves.' Tense: Elaborating on reports that Eden had allegedly struck up dalliances with participants on the series, Nadia told us in her latest statement 'I saw [Eden's] WhatsApps during filming [before he left the show] and got continually more concerned that his behaviour was inappropriate and putting our credibility and the whole show in jeopardy' The TV personality claims her former colleague has deliberately attempted to block her getting further work, alleging: 'It has been Eden's intention to ruin my career from early on and still today his vendetta continues with him having called Dating Show Live to tell them not to employ me.' Nadia has filed a lawsuit against the fellow dating expert, for ' harassment, discrimination and victimisation' and pledges to release further information in the future.
The TV star has, meanwhile, taken the experience and decided to launch a charity based on the situation. 'I never want anyone to feel as bullied, as low and as worthless as I felt filming with Eden,' she added. 'I never want anyone to have to lose or walk away from their dream job because they vented on social media because they thought it was their only way.
'This has cost me my job. So I am in the process of starting a charity. I want women supported much more in terms of knowing their employment rights, knowing they don’t have to put up with a hellish working environment and even if their employer won’t do anything to help there is another way venting online.
Rule break: Nadia and Eden were 'given a contract and code of conduct in which we were strictly forbidden from speaking to, dating or interacting with celebs or their dates during filming'.
It later came out, however, that Eden was dating Chanelle Sadie Paul [pictured] 'If I knew then what I knew now the tweets would never even exist.
People need more support. I want my charity to be there for them.' MailOnline has approached reps for Celebs Go Dating and Eden for comment. Eden, indeed, admitted previously that he told Celebs Go Dating bosses that he was younger than he was, reportedly claiming to be 38 when he was in fact 50. According to Nadia, after season two of the series, she and Eden were 'given a contract and code of conduct in which we were strictly forbidden from speaking to, dating or interacting with celebs or their dates during filming'.
It later came out, however, that Eden had a girlfriend for a year and a half, but was said to be dating Chanelle Sadie Paul - a constant on the series whom was recruited to be set up with celeb hopeful Jonathan Cheban - at the same time. Abuse: Nadia has received a torrent of abuse on social media Chanelle told following the news that he was in a long-term relationship: 'I'm absolutely gutted, I'm so angry.
People need to know he's a bullsh***er, why would you go and be a dating agent and then lie like this? 'It was a whirlwind, all the wining and dining and taking me out to nice places. He was completely flirty, all his messages were quite forward and I felt like he was my own Christian Grey.
'I felt like I was actually dating a man for once but obviously not.' Following Nadia's departure from the series - which features the likes of Alik Alfus, Eyal Booker, Olivia Attwood and Chloe Sims - a representative for the E4 show said: 'Nadia has been suspended following improper use of social media.' When Nadia officially stepped down from Celebs Go Dating, she took to social media and shared a quote from Jameela Jamil. 'Today I have officially resigned from Celebs Go Dating,' she captioned the post.
Love lost: 'If I knew then what I knew now the tweets would never even exist. People need more support. I want my charity to be there for them,' she said of her new endeavour The Jameela Jamil quote read: 'I just cannot stay silent any more.
I can't. I don't care if I'm going down, I'm going down in flames. I'm fine not to work in this industry. But I'm not fine to not say something.' She was part of the fabric of Celebs Go dating since the birth of the show in 2016 but she will no longer play a part - leaving the celebs in the hands of new love guru Paul Carrick Brunson. Reacting to the allegations, The World’s First Dating Show Live creator, Angela Watson, told MailOnline: 'I’m shocked at what I have read in the paper today, I really thought she is/was a lovely girl.
'Actually, I’ll go one step further — I’m horrified that she has allegedly been found out setting up fake social media accounts to troll people.
'It's unacceptable behaviour. I don’t know all the facts. I’m hoping this is untrue and there is a reason behind this, so we can stand by her.' Celebs Go Dating season five will air in the coming weeks on E4.
