You crave something sweeter.

12/25 When you’ve been single for so long,  you know how annoying it is to hear this from your family:

As if you didn’t already know that. *rolls eyes in Spanish*

Oops. ??‍♀️

If your boo is as supportive as your faja, then they’re a keeper.

Or Paquita ?.

19/25 TBH, sometimes you just need your space.

CREDIT: @WEAREMITU / INSTAGRAM

Of course you want attention, but you also don’t want someone to be so clingy.

20/25 And if they don’t respect your space, you then have to start dropping subtle hints…

CREDIT: @WEAREMITU / INSTAGRAM

Only *subtle* hints of course.

21/25 Another problem you run into while trying to date is: false advertisement.

CREDIT: @WEAREMITU / INSTAGRAM

I hate it when I meet a cute guy but his personality is dry AF. ?

22/25 Another reason you stay single is because either you have commitment issues or the people you try to date do.

CREDIT: @WEAREMITU / INSTAGRAM

This reminds me of the time I dated someone for a year and they said we were “just friends.” So annoying.

23/25 At the end of the day, your love life cycles back to your one and only…FOOD.

I’ve never read something more poetic and romantic in my life.

24/25 And also, beverages.❤️

CREDIT: @WEAREMITU / INSTAGRAM

25/25 But once Valentine’s Day is around the corner, you’re reminded once again of how single you are.

But who cares? As long as you love yourself, it’s all good. ?

Camila Cabello Is Back In Action With An Artsy Music Video That Is Giving Us Catholic Church Vibes

Camila Cabello / YouTube

Cuban-American pop star, Camila Cabello, has done it again, y’all. Twenty-two-year-old Cabello just released the two highly-anticipated singles from her new album, “Romance.” “I knew for a long time I wanted my album to be called Romance because these stories are about falling in love,” Cabello said in a statement. The two new songs, “Liar” and “Shameless”, are all about the obstacles we face in falling love–from the shame of Catholic guilt to feeling like a ‘liar,’ pretending you’re not falling in love.

Cabello also released a music video for “Shameless,” which has grown to 10 million views in less than 24 hours. For, recovering Catholics, it’s no secret why.

The video starts off with Cabello sorrowfully singing in a confessional booth.

“Don’t speak, no, don’t try / It’s been a secret for the longest time,” she sings.  “Don’t run (Oh), no, don’t hide / Been running from it for the longest time.” The vast majority of Latinos grew up or identify as Roman Catholic. For many of us, we’re all too familiar with the confessional booths that prompted the guilt and shame for the “mortal sin” of lusting after a crush.

Cabello gets progressively more lusty while the Priestess remains stonefaced.

For one, never have we ever seen gender equality in the Priesthood of the Roman Catholic Church, so this simple change of scenery is significant. Still, Cabello seems to make the point that even if women are allowed in leading positions, the role still suppresses basic human desire as something worth confessing. 

We get an intimate look inside Cabello’s ‘naked’ emotions that take her ‘out of her mind.’

“So many mornings I woke up confused / In my dreams, I do anything I want to you,” she sings, presumably about new bae, Shawn Mendes. “My emotions are naked, they’re taking me out of my mind.” Cabello and Mendes have been spotted holding hands in the street after many years of friendship. Just last week, Mendes cryptically confirmed that he was in a relationship, but that he can’t disclose any information out of respect for the other person. Obvi, that person is Camila Cabello.

Finally, Cabello is “shameless, screamin’ my lungs out for ya.”

“These songs are basically the story of my life the past couple years and the stories I’ve accumulated,” she said in a press statement. “I knew for a long time I wanted my album to be called Romance because these stories are about falling in love,” she added. 

Then, the beat drops just as the sultriest line Cabello’s ever uttered makes its debut.

“Not afraid to face it, I need you more than I want to” she longingly sings. “It’s all over,” she belts, and she’s right. For those of us that didn’t save sex for marriage or God, we all remember that feeling. The gig is up, and the emotions are out of the box. “Show me you’re shameless” she begs of, let’s just say, Shawn Mendes. Then, Cabello’s sexiest line to date: “Write it on my neck, why don’t ya? And I won’t erase it

The contrast between Cabello in white and her female crew in all red speaks volumes.

The first image of the video is of Cabello in a white dress, standing still in an empty street. By the end of the video, she’s running down the street, which is now lined with two rows of men with their backs to her. The role of the virgin is played out in the ‘pure’ white dress, alone in a street, chasing after her longings with no end in sight. Meanwhile, the women in the red dress symbolize the scarlet red of a woman whose gone after what she wants, only to be marked forever by it. the upside? Having a band of women who hold her up both lyrically, and physically in a stunning dance performance.

By the end of the video, Cabello sets fire to the confessional booth, symbolically burning down the binds of shame, so easily overcome by a fiery love.

We see Cabello’s curvy silhouette outlined by the fire that represents her love and passion for her newfound freedom and her love. Get it, Cabello. Muchas gracias for burning down the booth for us.

These 20 Latino Sayings Will Get You Through Any And Every Day

Life is complicated. Luckily, Latinos have sayings, or refrains, that help with managing expectations and making better choices. Beyond offering sound advice, some clever sayings, when dropped like jewels at just the right moment, help transform tension into laughter. While some sayings seem outdated, folk witticisms leftover from the early days, they address elements of the human condition that are timeless like love, jealousy, ingratitude, and morality. Whether deciding to stay in a long-distance relationship or looking for an old-school diss, these 20 Latino sayings are worth memorizing and dishing out the next time a golden opportunity presents itself.

Talk About Love

1. Mejor sola que mala acompañada.

Better to be alone then among bad company. This saying is great for those moments when the fear of being alone starts to kick in. More deeply, this timeless saying is also reflective of the importance of self- love.

2. Amor de lejos, felices los cuatros.

In long-distance love, four people are happy. This pessimistic proverb suggests long-distance relationships provide fertile ground for infidelity. This saying came about before technology helped couples stay more in touch than ever. And yet, the possibility remains.

3. Juntos pero no revueltos.

Together but not mixed. This dicho is the equivalent of saying, “It’s complicated.” It’s a great way to explain why a couple doesn’t live together, or why they are not married.

4. Un clavo saca otro clavo.

A nail removes the other nail. The meaning behind this refrán is that a new relationship, or lover, can help a person get over a failed relationship.

5.  Ojos que no ven, corazón que no siente.

Out of sight, out of mind. It’s hard to say this refrán without thinking about Alexis & Fido’s 2009 hit song.

6. Dime con quién andas y te diré quién eres.

Tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are. This saying has come out of many parents’ mouths. It’s a perfect proverb for helping a person decide what kind of company they should keep.

7. Más sabe el diablo por viejo que por diablo.

The devil knows more because he is old than because he is the devil. In other words, with age comes wisdom. This saying also warns against elders who may be sly or have bad intentions.

8. Con un dedo no se tapa el sol.

The sun cannot be covered with a finger. This is a great piece of advice that addresses the way self-deception is harmful. It also calls out quick fixes that don’t serve to address larger issues.

9. En boca cerrada no entran moscas.

A closed mouth does not catch flies. This idiom more accurately translates to ‘silence is golden.’ This refrán extols the virtues of discretion.

10. El que no llora, no mama.

The baby who doesn’t cry, doesn’t get milk. This saying is akin to ‘the squeaky wheel gets the grease.’ A great refrán serving to inspire vocalization of needs and wants.

Insults Que Arden

11. A otro perro con ese hueso.

To another dog with that bone. It’s the “talk to the hand” of all the idioms. Deploy this saying at the sight of deception. 

12. Se cree la última Coca Cola del desierto.

He/She thinks they are the last Coca-Cola in the desert. A third-degree burn, this little gem calls out people who think they are more attractive or desirable than everyone else.

13. Se cree mejor de la bolita del mundo.

He/She thinks they are the best in the world. The exact translation fails to convey the hilarity of this saying. While also a diss to those who think they are hot stuff, the saying reduces the entire planet into a tiny, little ball.

14. Se fue de Guatemala a Guata-peor!

This a saying that relies on a play on words, mala meaning bad, and peor meaning worse. The idea is that the person went from one bad situation to an even worse situation.

15. Cuando tu ibas, yo venia.

When you were coming, I was leaving. A great diss from an elder, this dicho also conveys a knowing that comes with age. It works particularly well when directed at teenagers who attempt to be deceptive but are really transparent. 

For the Nostalgia and the LOLs

16. Quien fue a Sevilla, perdió su silla.

Who went to Sevilla lost his/her chair. Here is a fun phrase that relies on wordplay and rhyme. 

17. Tirar las puertas por las ventanas.

Throw the doors out the windows. This is what you say when you plan to have an absolute blow out party! Think of New Year’s Eve, Cinco de Mayo, or birthdays.

18. Vete a freír papas.

Go fry potatoes. While this saying may seem like an insult, it works as a playful way to tell someone to go to hell without sounding so vulgar.

19. Por si las moscas.

For if the flies. This is more of a nostalgic phrase that means ‘just in case.’ Use it when deciding on whether or not to pack that snack bar or an umbrella. 

20. Calabaza, calabaza, todo el mundo para su casa!

Pumpkin, pumpkin, everyone go home! Our final phrase is a fun way to end the fiesta, or bring the gathering to a close.
