We Listed 21 Reasons Why Being Single Is The Best.

Full disclosure: I’m not single anymore, which makes me uniquely qualified to tell you all the reasons being single is the best. Trust, you won’t be single forever, and in fact, will probably be single for only the smallest fraction of your life.

As Latinos, we feel enough pressure to couple up from our family and even friends. Lighten your load and lean into one of the most special, light, and free times of your life! Here are all the perks to being single, in case you need a refresher.

1. You can indulge yourself in self-love and self-care.

Cheesy, but true. You don’t have to compromise your own self-care to allow your partner space to take a bath, or watch their favorite telenovela.

2. Make loving yourself your religion, already.

Because you should always prioritize your self-care, and doing it religiously in your single life will make it a given in your future relationships.

3. Eat the f*cking pan dulce if you want it.

Ditch your diet. Whatever you’re looking for: the right f*ckboy, partner, wife…they’ll be attracted to your self-confidence, not your bod. Ok, probably also your bod, but respect its sexiness as is and never stop!

4. Go on trips with your friends.

In the first honeymoon years of your next relationship, you’ll want to go places together. Love on your true friends and enjoy the liberation of no obligations to anyone but yourself.

5. Go on a trip by yourself.

I mean, you don’t have to go all Reese Witherspoon, but take a day trip to the beach, or commit to a staycation day.

6. You can put the love and work into making 100 croquetas and not share a single one.

True love is sharing your croquetas. Show yourself some love and cherish the days you don’t have to explain the labor of love these are.

7. You finally have the time to channel your past lives like your mama wanted you to.

Spend your Friday night watching this Past Life Regression YouTube vid that will help reveal your past lives, loves, and … well, you’ll find out!

8. If you want to commit to being single, set a reasonable time frame.

It’s kind of the best when you can give yourself time to give none of the f*cks about attracting someone and just lean into what it’s like to live solo. The best perk? Read on…

My single days = my hairy days, and what a true, true freedom. While your mom might try to Nair you in your sleep, hopefully you get the chance to really love yourself as you are, and not as anyone else expects it to be.

10. You can eat banana peppers straight from the jar.

Don’t play like you don’t do that when you think you’re alone. This is a life free of façades and mothers telling you you look like a slob. This is  l i f e.

11. You can listen to your friends’ love drama without projecting a damn thing.

Because you’re single!! No relationship drama over hurr, OK?

12. Just focus on meeting your Cardi B. needs.

Like binging Love & Hip Hop New York without judgement, or listening to Invasion of Privacy on repeat with A-Z Lyrics open wide screen. Nobody’s here to judge you. 🙂

13. And marinate in Cheeto dust and watch Jane the Virgin all day long.

Bottom line: nobody is here to judge you, least of all you. You’ll miss these freedoms, and sometimes you need to let go for an afternoon…or weekend.

14. Focus on who really needs you: your dog.

You’ll never go on a trip alone again! What want for love? Bella Thorne is living her best life with her dog, Tampon. Why aren’t you?

15. When you go home for Christmas, you don’t have to be embarrassed about your family for anyone but yourself.

Or change your strategy of heavy drinking (for FREE) to get through it! Cling, cling, Mama!

16. Revel in the feminist joy of disappointing your “Todavía no tienes un novio?” tias.


“Sí, señora and you better find value in me, myself, and I because I don’t need anybody to define my self worth.”

17. You can try the things that interest you.

The world is your oasis, mija. When you’re with someone, you both end up taking on the others’ interests. Go jump off a cliff if you want to! Spend hours reading on the beach if you want to. Get yourself where you want to be.

18. Make a big change you’ve been curious about.

Been meaning to join Crossfit? Do it. Want to go vegan? Dale. For whatever reason, it feels harder to make a lifestyle change when you have to convince someone else that it’s worth uprooting your shared routines. Carpe diem, mama.

19. Flirt with whoever you damn well want.

You already are thinking of three people that you flirt with on the reg that feels fun and safe because you know it isn’t going anywhere. When you’re in a relationship, that might be problematic. For now, you can revel in the attention.

20. You can sing Selena as loud as you want in the shower.


And who knows, maybe launch your singing and dancing career? YOLO and you have so much more time without an S.O., and don’t forget the little people who encouraged you along the way. 😉

21. Find your chill.


I promise you, whatever drama you think you have going on with casual dating, it is nothing to the deep, dark, family of origin issues that come up when you get close enough to someone.

These are the light and breezy days, when drama becomes a good story later (for someone that isn’t your therapist). DISFRUTE.

From Taurus To Cancer, These Are The Most Compatible Signs With Virgo


From Taurus To Cancer, These Are The Most Compatible Signs With Virgo

Who are we kidding: one of the major reasons all of us check our horoscope is to find out what the future has in store for us when it comes to love and lust. After all, you know that if you’re really meant to be together, then it’ll be written in the stars. 

So Virgo, in honor of your birthday, we’ve put together a quick guide to point you in the direction of your soulmate.

Virgo with an Aries (March 21 – April 19) creates an explosively fiery passion.

Instagram / @pavingsunrays

Part of what attracts you to Aries is the fact that they do everything with so much passion. You can’t help but be attracted to the fire in their soul. But Virgo, you can only function on their level for so long until you burn out. For you, a relationship with Aries takes work.

Compatibility: Low

Virgo with a Taurus (April 20 – May 20) is a matchmaker’s pick!

Instagram / @the.bridal.visions

Taurus are known for being super grounded and down to earth, and that’s exactly the kind of person you need in your life, Virgo. Your drive for perfectionism means that your Taurus can put things into perspective for you – they’re the yin to your yang, so to speak.

Compatibility: High

Virgo with a Gemini (May 21 – June 20) sees opposites attract.

Instagram / @vcheckmark

If one of your brutally honest friends had to describe you, Virgo, they’d say you’re a bit of a square. And, they wouldn’t exactly be wrong. That’s why Gemini can get on your nerves a bit … they’ve always got their heads up in the clouds when you’re trying to be realistic!

Compatibility: Low

Virgo with a Cancer (June 21 – July 22) means both love and lust.

Instagram / @mannyg520

While on the surface it would seem like Cancer is a bit too emotional for you, Virgo, it turns out that they’re exactly the sort of person you need in your life – and they need you, too. Your pragmatism in the face of their emotional swings is what keeps them sane. And they remind you to stay in touch with your softer side. So you know what this means? You guys have fabulous, fulfilling sex. Noice.

Compatibility: High

Virgo with a Leo (July 23 – August 22) is one hell of a rollercoaster!

Instagram / @happy_healthy_fitcouple

Leo can definitely test your patience, Virgo. You’re a quiet achiever, whereas Leo likes to get all of the attention, wherever they can get it. Leo’s got a massive ego that needs stroking … and you’re more critical. As you can imagine, it’s pretty much the perfect environment for lots of silly bickering. Then again, every couple has those moments, right?

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Virgo (August 23 – September 22) asks the question: can you ever have too much of a good thing?

Instagram / @miles.and.smiles

You’d think that being with someone who functions on the same vibe as you would be a match made in heaven. But, that’s only true to a certain extent. Given that the two of you are perfectionists and workaholics, you’d make a great power couple … that has almost zero romantic and sexual chemistry. If you want it to work, you’ve gotta work at it, Virgo.

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Libra (September 23 – October 22) meshes realism with idealism.

Instagram / @vcheckmark

When people think Libra, they think social butterfly. When people think Virgo, they think shy. Virgo, you’re a realist, whereas Libras are an idealist. They say that opposites attract, but in your case, you’d probably find that the differences between you and Libra would eventually drag you away from each other. The both of you would really have to put in an effort to find your way back.

Compatibility: Low

Virgo with a Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) sees things heat up in the bedroom.

Instagram / @smperez

While Scorpio and Virgo can build a really secure and safe relationship, you kids can come unstuck when it comes to your attitudes towards the bedroom. Scorpio tends to be all about the real carnal side of the beast with two backs, whereas Virgo is more about connecting emotionally through sex.

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21) mixes fun and stability.

Instagram / @littledolewhips

It’s nice when you meet someone who’s as adaptable as you are. But in the case of Sagittarius, Virgo, you might find that they’re a little too spontaneous for your liking. That being said, they might get you to loosen up a little, which is never a bad thing in your case!

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) is a match made in heaven!

Instagram / @bonitachinitalatina

Capricorn’s brand of perfectionism fits pretty well with your brand of perfectionism, Virgo. The difference is that you strive for better because you want to do good, whereas Capricorn wants to be good – at everything they do. And that makes you good together!

Compatibility: High

Virgo with an Aquarius (January 21 – February 18) is a hella smart match.

Instagram / @brazilcupid

Because both you and Aquarius are intellectual sorts, you’d find that you’d have what Alanis Morissette called, “intellectual intercourse.” But since the pair of you have such different approaches to life, you’d probably find it a lot easier to work on a friendship together, rather than a real steamy, romantic relationship.

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Pisces (February 19 – March 20) means sweetness in spades.

Instagram / @yamelyhr

There’s no denying it, there’s definitely an attraction between you two. You’re both devoted, thoughtful and detail-oriented souls – but where Pisces is a dreamer, you’re much more realistic. If you’re both able to navigate your differences, then there’s no stopping you! Chances are, though, you’d find that your relationship will always be an ongoing project.

Compatibility: Medium

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


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.’

Credit: Camila Cabello / YouTube

“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.

Credit: Camila Cabello / YouTube

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.
