Diagnose your relationships with others

Megan Keane, Columnist

February 6, 2020

I’ll often find myself in the midst of these longstanding friendships or “situationships” and assess how I acquired the feelings that I have. Giving yourself some distance from those people makes this easier, whether it’s your choice or it’s forced upon you by them. You’ve got to diagnose t...

Modern relationships are not serious

Jaidyn Yarber

February 3, 2020

I was told not to date in high school. So, the last thing I expected to hear in college was it’s the worst time to date. Especially in this time and age, it’s as if dating is a thing of the past. Titles are intimidating, and feelings are overrated. Young adults would rather be “chillin” than...

Don’t be ashamed to love

Andrew Paisley, Campus Reporter

March 5, 2018

One of the topics I write about the most are relationships. I think it is because I have had a lot of experience with relationships and I know there are so many people out there who need advice or have been in the same situations that I have. Some time ago, I was involved with someone who was much,...

Column: Hard season for relationships, fish

Abby Carlin, Copy Editor

February 27, 2017

Fall snuggles and late night bonfire season has passed, Christmas lights and holiday movie marathons have come and gone, New Years kisses have dissipated and Valentine’s flowers rotting in the garbage and chocolates are sitting comfortably right above where your favorite pants rest. This time of year...
