This guy saw a girl dancing on a rooftop and asked her out via drone. It worked!

This is a story of modern romance during a quarantine.

A Brookly photographer asked a girl living across the street on a date via drone and lots of creativity.

One day, the photographer Jeremy Cohen saw a cute girl across the street dancing on her rooftop. The mysterious woman was Tori Cignarella. She was freely dancing on the rooftop like no one was watching. Or at least that was what she thought.

Jeremy got impressed by Tori’s free spirit in these difficult times of self-isolation.

Luckily, he documented their whole romantic journey so the rest of the world could see it.

This is absolute proof that love has no limits, even during the quarantine.

The photographer immediately knew he had to meet the dancing girl, so he got an idea. He sent a drone over, writing his phone number on it. What an inventive way to start a relationship!

Fortunately, Tori texted him back and they started chatting. Jeremy couldn’t believe his idea worked. Yet, exchanging numbers wasn’t enough for the photographer in love. He wanted to actually take Tori out on a real date.

But how could he take the girl out, when they’re supposed to follow the stay-at-home restrictions? Well, he thought that through too. Apparently, Jeremy is quite a creative guy. He asked Tori out to dinner, but she had one very important question: “How?”

Jeremy had a whole plan figured out. He set up a table for one on his balcony, and he asked Tori’s roommate to set a similar table for her on their rooftop.

Through Facetime, Jeremy and Tori had a lovely first date, eating their microwaved meals together, while still being across the street from each other.

They began a thrilling long-distance relationship, despite the fact they live in the same neighborhood.

Their “Quarantine Cutie” story continues with even a sweeter romantic gesture from Jeremy. As he badly wanted to see Tori in person, he came up with another innovative plan. Can you guess his next step?

To meet his quarantined sweetheart, Jeremy blew up a human-sized plastic bubble, got in it, sealed it up, and walked across the street to her apartment to surprise her.

He also bought her flowers like a real gentleman. Unfortunately, there was no way he could give her the flowers but it didn’t really matter. After that, the new couple enjoyed a walk in the neighborhood.

A post shared by JEREMY COHEN (@jermcohen) on

They even got stopped by the cops, but only because their story was already quite popular. The officers only wanted to take a picture with the unusual couple.

Thanks to Jeremy and Tori’s modern romance, now we have a lovely story to follow while we stay at home and wonder what to do. Let’s all hope that they will continue to be quarantine sweethearts even after the lockdown ends. Here’s their whole story Jeremy posted on Twitter.

Introvert: I Don’t Want To Go But Please Invite Me

Life can sometimes get lonely just because of all the exciting activities we see and imagine all around us.

We hear about all kinds of social activities and party’s to which we were not invited. People rush to buy snacks before the “world finals” or party beverages and foods during the holidays, and we imagine their houses filled with wonderful friends and family, all having a great time. And sadly, we are left behind, with our studies, TV, or just a pet. Sometimes loneliness can even get physical and that needs to be addressed.

Even though loneliness, just like any other pain, can serve its purpose, it is mostly a negative feeling about what we believe we’re missing out on.

Every day we are bombarded with commercials and other sorts of videos about giant parties, and holidays, it’s easy to think that this is what we should be doing too. If we are at school or university we hear people talk about their amazing weekends, and this can instantly make us feel like we’re missing out on life as it should be lived.

Next time you feel left behind and lonely, try to understand whether you’re truly lonely or you’re just feeling as if you’re missing out on something.

If it’s loneliness that bothers you, maybe you should try being more social, meet some new people, or spend more time with the friends you already have in life.

And if your friends are more than enough for you, don’t feel as if you need to play catch up with other people’s standards just for the sake of it. Furthermore, if you’re going out as much as you feel necessary, just be happy with that and don’t worry about what others are doing.

When word comes to you about that awesome party and you get that feeling of loneliness and failure, try asking yourself whether you really want to be there, or if you would have just have liked to be invited.

Sometimes asking yourself that question can be enough for you to realize how glad you are not to have to think of an excuse not to go. This way you can spend your relaxing evening at home with a renewed feeling of appreciation.

Do you believe that sometimes you don’t really want to go to a certain place but you would just want to be invited? Let us know your thoughts by joining the conversation in the comments and please share this article if you’ve enjoyed the read.

If You Want To Find True Happiness, Cut The Energy Vampires Out Of Your Life

All the people in your surroundings you spend time with are people you give energy to. And the more energy you give them, the more they will either support you or take advantage of you.

If you really want to lead a happy life, you must cut the energy flow of toxic or undeserving people.

People who aren’t willing to give back do not deserve to be fed. If they won’t help us grow, they only hold us back.

Being happy is not about being around as many people as possible, it is about building relationships with like-minded individuals with whom you can grow together. Inevitably, you will cross paths people who will make you feel worthless and they certainly do not deserve to be around you!

Energy vampires can sometimes even be our friends or members of our family, and we don’t realize what is going on until they’ve managed to sink their teeth in us. 

Once we find out the truth and their masks have come off it can be both a problem and a solution. These people will fight dirty to remain in your life and keep on sucking your energy, but once you break free from them you will transform into a more mentally stable version of yourself.

You should not keep allowing energy vampires to keep asking you for favors or to be part of your life at all. You are the boss and the decision is entirely up to you.

Of course, you may feel down at first for coming off as heartless but do not worry, it will be better for you in the end.

You shouldn’t be wasting your time trying to change toxic people. This is important if you want to keep moving in a positive direction.

If a person is talking negatively about others to you, it is likely they’re talking badly about you to other people. That is one of the clues you should watch out for when trying to spot such a toxic person. But be aware that some people will be much more sneaky in their actions. Paying close attention to how they express themselves and whether they back their words with actions will be key in spotting them.

If someone in your circle is dragging you down, you shouldn’t have to feel bad about cutting ties with them, and you don’t even need to waste time explaining yourself. You don’t owe these people a thing. Let them figure things out on their own and if that experience causes them to look inward and change for the better, then good for them.

Life is not infinite, and we all need to make the most of it.

Do not allow people to use you and manipulate you. Your life is your life, and it is only up to you to make it better.

There is nothing complicated about happiness.

Once you surround yourself with people who mean you well, it will come naturally. Never let anyone use you under any circumstances.

7 Warning Signs Of Toxic People In Your Life

“Like arsenic, toxic people will slowly kill you. They kill your positive spirit and play with your mind and emotions. The only cure is to let them go.”

– Dennisse Lisseth

Being in a relationship with a toxic person can be difficult, mostly because they can be hard to spot and often even harder to get away from.

Even though not all toxic people will exhibit all of these characteristics, here are 7 signs that can warn you of a potential toxic relationship.

1. They get extremely jealous

Toxic people can get so jealous that they will try to control their partner in an unhealthy way. This one can be a little murky since not all boundaries are valid. Toxic individuals use ‘boundaries’ as a way to control, and then play the victim themselves once their ‘boundaries’ are crossed or disrespected.

2. They are always right, you are always wrong

When a person in your life never takes ownership of their mistakes and insists that you are the one to blame all the time, then you’re likely dealing with a toxic person.

They will go to extreme lengths to appear right, including twisting facts or challenging the truthfulness of your memories. Toxic individuals are never willing to admit that they have made a mistake, misspoken, or miscalculated something.

3. They have a constant need to be the center of attention

Sure, it can be a great feeling to sometimes be the center of attention and have others admire you. But for someone who is toxic this is a constant need. Just like a drug, they crawl for attention to fill their emptiness and will do whatever it takes to get it. This includes interrupting even your most important conversations, or acting like drama queens so everyone switches their focus to them.

4. They don’t know the meaning of compassion

Toxic people have a difficult time empathizing with others or being compassionate towards them. Because they are so over-focused on themselves, they are unable to notice the suffering of other people or give them the time of day.

5. They share too much about themselves

They waste no time to disclose deeply personal information about themselves or even others straight away. This is because they want to be approved of so badly they will bear any secret. Once they sense that you disapprove of them, however, they will turn against you and any information they have on you will be used against you, or in future attempts to come off as the victim to others.

6. They never apologize

Even if they know they are wrong, toxic individuals will not say sorry (and mean it). On the occasions they do apologize, it is usually a tactical move to manipulate you to give them what they want later. They feel that they are right by default, no matter the circumstances, and will twist the truth in order to appear right, or blame others.

7. They are always negative

Toxic people have a never-ending supply of negativity. Whether it be moaning about or judging others, a toxic person is always in the worst state of mind. In their heads nothing ever goes as planned and the world is a nasty, terrible place. Being around such a negative person can really suck out all your energy.

Make sure to recognize whether your partner/friend exhibits these signs and don’t hesitate to remove them from your life before it’s too late.

Do you believe there are some signs of toxic people we may have missed here?

7 Brutally Honest Truths About Emotional Abusers

Emotional violence is another kind of abuse … it’s not about words because an emotionally abusive person doesn’t always resort to using the verbal club, but rather the verbal untraceable poison.

– Augusten Burroughs

Emotional abuse is also referred to as psychological or mental abuse.

Its function is to belittle, isolate, shame and control others into subservience. It happens incrementally over time, and in the end, the victim’s sense of self-worth and own way of thinking erode into submission.

If you happen to suspect that you might be a victim of emotional abuse you should consider abandoning ship.

Here are 7 brutally honest truths about emotional abusers you should look out for:

1. You are constantly being put down

This is one of the key tools of emotional abusers. It includes humiliation, excessive mockery of the partner by using sarcasm, or “teasing” to put them down. They constantly demean and disregards the opinions of their partner, as well as their needs and feelings. This happens in closed doors as well as in public.

2. Threats

The abuser may threaten to expose you in a way they know will embarrass you, or they may threaten to take something important from you, such as your house, your money, or even your children. Some will threaten to ditch you if you don’t do what they want, or they may say they will reveal your deepest secret for everyone to know.

3. Controlling

Emotional abusers have a deep-seeded need to control their partner.  The abuser will try to make the victim feel as if they are unable to make their own decisions. They withhold both emotional and sexual attention as a way of punishing or scaring their partner into submission. In addition, they try to control the finances, as a way of making their partner dependent on them.

4. No respect for privacy

This one can come off as fairly subtle. Your partner may be checking your texts or calls, either by doing it without your knowledge or by insisting you give them immediate access so they can “catch you in the act”.

They could even ask you to delete your own social media account and create a shared one with them so they can monitor everything.

5. Gaslighting

Gaslighting is a psychological weapon the abuser uses to get the victim to doubt their own feelings, memories, judgement and even sanity. They use a number of different forms of manipulation accusing the victim of being “oversensitive,” reversing the blame and putting it onto their partner, and total denial of any wrongdoing on their own part.

6. Alienation

Abusers often try to control who you can see or talk to, and how deep those connections are allowed to run. This means that, at some point, you may feel as if you have lost the most supportive people in your life because your partner did not approve of them.

7. They are needy and can be emotionally unpredictable 

Abusers are often emotionally unstable and may suffer from untreated mood disorder. This includes being emotionally unavailable and distant. Their mood swings may include neediness, manipulation, and obsessive control.

We hope that these signs have helped you recognize an emotional abuser. Let us know your thoughts on the subject in the comment section and please share this article if you’ve found it of value.

7 Awesome Reasons Why Having A Sister Makes You A Better Person

Having a sister is more precious than anything else.

She can be the most irritating and the most loving person at the same time in one body.

Sometimes you would want her to disappear and regret having her but then again, you remind yourself that your life would never have been the same without her presence.

And let’s face it, you cannot imagine your life without her. After all, having a sister is a gift that not everyone receives.

And growing up with a sister even makes you a better person for a number of reasons.

Let us take a look at some of them.

1. Your sister helps you become a better communicator

This can only make complete sense considering the fact that sisters tell each other everything. Those revealing late night sister talks about all things in life prepare women to be more open and understanding with their romantic partners in later years.

 2. She helps you grow your self-esteem

Sisters are kind and caring towards each other. This gives you a priceless feeling of love and protection, which will in turn help you build your self-esteem. The caring environment your sister provided for you will help you immensely in the years to come.

As time goes by everyone goes their separate ways, and it’s the sisters who keep the family intact. They have incredible motherly instincts, and they are the ones who will do anything in their power to keep everyone together.

3. Having a sister reduces your chances of divorce

Sisters help reduce the chances of divorce. Sure, having a sister does not mean that you’ll never get divorced. Although that would be amazing. But, it is good to learn that for every sibling one has, their chance of divorce is lowered by 2%.

4. Your sister will make you more emphatic

Your sister will show you how to connect to others on an emotional level, especially the people who need attention. She will show you how to recognize human emotions and you will in turn become a more emphatic person.

Because any time your sister was in trouble, you would turn to help her. You felt her pain. And later on you became like that with others. That is how your sister has helped you become a better person.

5. Your sister helps you keep calm and sane

Your sister is your sounding board and most trusted ally. Having her by your side  encouraging you when you most need it can be better than a large dose of medicine sometimes.

6. She teaches you the meaning of independence 

Growing up alongside your sister teaches you a vitally important thing – you learn how to fight and stand up for yourself.

You know that unless you speak up, your opinions won’t be considered. Your sister has taught you how to become the independent person you are now.

7. Sisters are always there for each other

No matter the time of day (or night), and no matter the situation at hand, sisters are always on stand by. They never have to face the troubles of life alone because they always have each other.

Let us know how much your sister means to you by joining the conversation in the comments and please share this article if you’ve found it of value.

6 Surefire Signs You're In a Relationship With A Man-Child

Consider whether you’re in a relationship with a person you constantly have to carry in life instead of a true partner you can rely on. 

What looks like silly and sweet could eventually turn into deadweight that you have to drag for life – together with your kids, finances, and household duties.

Here are 6 warning signs that you might be in a relationship with a man-child.

1. He never picks up after himself

He always creates a mess all around. You’re constantly finding yourself picking up his food, clothes, and so on, and this is truly pitiful. A real man cleans up after himself, and that’s that. Sure, we all forget sometimes, but the distinction with a man-child is that he expects you to be the one who will clean up after him 24/7. He expects to be treated like a needy child, and you to be his maid. Stop cleaning after him. Instead, clean up your life and dispose of him.

2. He lacks ambition and motivation

Unambitious people can be a really big turn off, but the man-child will take this to another level. Why bother evolving in life when you have food on the table.. No career goals, no dreams, no plans for the future whatsoever.

And while it’s completely alright to take some time to think about a work plan, ‘working on an idea’ for years with no results surely does not count as progress.

3. He is extremely selfish

Sure, it can be a positive thing to be with a guy who values his youth and wants to have some fun; after all, life is there to be enjoyed. But for him, most of the time, this ends up being for his own selfish benefit, as are basically most things he does. For heaven’s sake, he’s even selfish in bed!

4. He never takes ownership of his mistakes

Even if you show him evidence of his wrongdoings, he will turn everything around so that he can be the victim. And once you accept his victimhood status, he will try to make you apologize for blaming him in the first place.

5. He is afraid of commitment

For the man-child it’s always too early for commitment. Feel free to throw as many tantrums as you want, but nothing will change him. He has never had to commit to anything serious in his life because he is terrified of responsibility. The man-child will come up with a million excuses not to commit to you, and you know full well that you don’t have time for such games. Move on now, and don’t waste any more precious energy and time.

6. He never makes plans for the two of you

Since he is only focused on himself, you are most likely the one who makes arrangements for quality time as a couple. Sure, that doesn’t necessarily mean that he doesn’t like you or that he has no feelings for you, it’s just that his own priorities are more important than the common good of the relationship. And that is a clear sign that the relationship is in deep trouble.

Do you think we may have missed some important points here? Let us know your thoughts by joining the conversation in the comments and please share this article if you’ve enjoyed the read.

Love makes you glow! 6 ways being in love makes you feel and look amazing

Falling in love lifts you and makes you feel like you’re on cloud nine.

Sometimes just thinking about the person you’re in love with gives you butterflies and makes your heart go wild.

Love is the most powerful, moving, soul-transforming feeling in the world.

Undoubtedly, being in love affects quite a lot more than your mood.

If you’re in a deep, loving relationship, the magical feeling you share with your partner has the power to improve the way you look and the way you feel. In other words, you look stunning, and you feel amazing!

Here are 7 ways your mind and body respond positively when you’re in love.

1. Love helps you make positive lifestyle changes much easier.

Taking the first step towards a whole new life is one of the scariest, yet boldest things ever. Making the choice to change your lifestyle is never easy. However, when you’re in a loving relationship with a supportive partner, it doesn’t seem so scary and difficult. Love gives you the confidence to pursue your dreams and helps you see how capable and talented you actually are.

2. Love can be a huge stress-reliever.

All the love-birdy things like cuddling, holding hands, hugging, and giving each other sweet little forehead kisses can relieve you from all the pressure you’ve been feeling throughout the day. After an extremely stressful workday, all you need are a few words from your partner. This can completely change your mood and make you forget about all the stress factors you’ve been dealing with.

3. Love makes you healthier.

Being in love doesn’t just make your heart skip a beat. It also makes it much healthier. Studies have shown that a happy marriage can have a great impact on your heart’s health. Moreover, when you and your significant other are together for years, you inevitably influence each other’s lifestyle decisions. For instance, if you are a smoker, and your partner isn’t, you may break this bad habit just because you don’t want to harm their health. Therefore, you improve your own health as well. Plus, you save a lot of money from cigarettes.

4. Love makes you look younger.

When you’re truly in love, your whole aura changes. Your face glows, your smile shines brighter, and your happiness definitely shows. Some call it the ‘love glow’. Being in a loving, romantic relationship makes your whole being radiate magical vibes. And these vibes make you look more dazzling and youthful than ever.

5. Love takes care of your figure.

Along with the youthful appearance, love also makes you look a lot slimmer. When you’re in love, all the adrenalin, dopamine, and oxytocin your mind and your body produce, often act as an appetite suppressant. This means less midnight walks to the fridge. What’s more, if you and your partner motivate each other to lead a healthier life together, you might as well hit the gym and keep that extra weight off.

6. Love makes you more athletic.

When you’ve just fallen in love, you usually try your best to impress the one you have these deep feelings for. This includes doing that additional ten squats at the gym, or run that extra mile, so you could be sure that you’ll look fire on your next date. So thanks to your partner, not only you look hotter, but you also take better care of your body.

7. Love boosts your confidence.

Feeling good in your own skin is truly amazing. Being in love lifts your spirits and makes you stand a little taller than usual. It just makes you feel great about yourself. The sensation of being loved by the one you love can not only make you feel glamorous, but it can also teach you how to love yourself as well. In other words, love takes you on a journey to rediscovering yourself, believing in your own potential, and appreciating yourself for who you truly are.

5 Bulletproof Reasons Why You Should Stop Proving Yourself To Others

We sometimes try to prove to the world just how great we are in hopes that we will be liked and accepted by as many people as possible, but we cannot please everyone nor should we want to.

The wonderful thing about us is our complexity, our vulnerabilities, and all our individual imperfections. When we accept ourselves for who we are, instead of who we assume others want us to be, we open ourselves to true relationships, true happiness, and true success.

There is no need for pretending. There is no need be someone you’re not.

You have nothing to prove to the world, and here’s why…

1. Those worth impressing want you to be yourself

The people who know you and know how important you are will never want you to be different. Those you need to impress are the ones who will accept you for all your strengths and weakness.

They will never judge you for your habits or the way you choose to live your life; they will take you along to share life together with everything you have to offer. They are the ones who deserve everything you can offer. They are the only ones worth impressing.

2. Nobody knows what’s best for you more than yourself

Let people take you for all that you are or not at all. Speak your truth even if your body is shaking. By staying true to your nature, you are giving the world a unique gift that it could never otherwise receive. You becomes stronger when you let your mistakes educate you.

Walk through life with confidence and don’t expect others to understand your journey, especially if they have never been to where you’re going.

3. You are the only one who can change your life

No one but you has the power to transform your life; it is entirely up to you. You cannot live your life in accordance to other people’s wishes, because they are wrong for wanting to change you.

They don’t have the right to do so and you must always keep that in mind. If someone asks you to change, don’t think twice about removing them from your life. Find the people who don’t judge you and are happy that you’re in their life with all your strengths and imperfections.

4. The path to greatness is paved with failure

Living without failing is impossible, unless you live like a coward, which means that you’re not living at all. If you are too frightened of failing in front of other people’s eyes, you cannot possibly hope to achieve ultimate success in life. You must remember that it’s irrelevant how many times you fail or how punishing your journey is, as long as you don’t stop marching forward. The reality is, those who keep going in spite of failure are inevitably the ones who fulfill their dreams in the end. And one day YOU can be among them.

5. It’s impossible to please everyone anyway

The people who laugh at your failures and never compliment your success are likely not successful themselves. Do not let them put you down and do not care what they think – they are irrelevant.

Never try changing who you are to please someone else or look good in their eyes. Do things the way you want to do them, and don’t let yourself be distracted by others. Only surround yourself with people who are happy to see you succeed and give you a helping hand when you’re going through bad times. Good people are hard to find these days, and that’s why they are so precious.

Be yourself and do not despair, you will make it soon enough!

It's Alright to Let Yourself Fall Apart

“Rain makes me feel less alone. All rain is, is a cloud- falling apart, and pouring its shattered pieces down on top of you. It makes me feel good to know I’m not the only thing that falls apart . It makes me feel better to know other things in nature can shatter.” ― Lone […]

It's Alright to Let Yourself Fall Apart

“Rain makes me feel less alone. All rain is, is a cloud- falling apart, and pouring its shattered pieces down on top of you. It makes me feel good to know I’m not the only thing that falls apart . It makes me feel better to know other things in nature can shatter.”
― Lone Alaskan Gypsy

It’s alright to fall apart. It’s alright to feel down, misunderstood, and lonely.

It’s alright to be heartbroken. To have your dreams destroyed and feeling like you just can’t hold on any longer.

And instead of seeing heartbreak as your ultimate end, you should see it as an invitation to travel inside yourself and heal.

With regards to relationships, it’s alright for things to fall apart to see where you stand, to see how strong your love truly was.

But, you should also keep in mind that the road your heart is taking is vast and never-ending. And your heart needs your strength more than ever.

You never know in what form love will visit you next week, month, or year. If you put boundaries on your feelings however, you will only harm yourself. You will betray your heart by expecting only one type of love and pushing out everything else that comes to you.

Before you choose to heal your heart, the most crucial thing you should know is that you are made out of love. Also, be thankful for all the love and kindness in your life, no matter what shape or form it may come in. Seek for guidance there because love is boundless and eternal.

And if you fell into the trap of believing that after the heartbreak your emotions will weaken, and you’ll become a colder person – you are wrong.

Because all that makes you human is still inside you.

Because even in the most difficult times love is pushing us to feel more, to be more active and open to more love. When the old dies, the new is born.

While it may be scary and disorienting to the mind and what has come before, the power of the new is pure and overwhelming. Trust in the light of disintegration. For everything that is less than whole must be shed and out of the depths of the unknown, love will be born in the most astonishing ways.

That is why it is vital for you to keep your heart open. To let love find its way inside your heart and heal your wounds.

We hope that this article has helped you find your inner strength. Let us know your thoughts on it in the comments section and please share if you’ve enjoyed the read.
