Is he 'the one'? What even is 'the one'? Is the idea of having a perfect match, one 'love of your life', 'Mr Right' a little outdated? Well, yes, the Disney version is. Hate to break it to you but you're unlikey to find your soul mate the first time round. You'll kiss (bang) a few frogs, settle for a couple of safe bets and get your heart broken by a love rat, but there is still hope. 


Think of 'the one' as being 'the right one' rather than 'the perfect one'. Because there's no such thing as perfect. You're not a Disney Princess- that sounds harsh, but you ain't. Can you talk to animals, swing down buildings by your hair or heal broken legs with your magic locks? Nah, you can't. And if you could you'd hopefully be a superhero not some princess searching for their prince. So, since you're not a Disney Princess, you're not going to find your Prince Charming. 

The one, in reality, is your best friend who you'd happily spend the rest of your life with- there will be fights, tears and heartbreak, but if they're the one you'll both love and support each other through it all. 

1. You Make Sacrifices For Each Other 

You make sacrifices for one another, and your life together, but never try and change each other. 

2. You Feel Comfortable Planning

The thought of planning a holiday with your last fella filled you with dread, but with this one you're happy to make plans months, christ even years, into the future. 

3. You Share Similar Values 

No, this doesn't mean you have to agree on everything. After all, opposites do attract, but only in regards to personality quirks and passions, not core values. If you don't agree on kids/marriage/politics and other big lifestyle factors, then you won't work out. It's all well and good loving one another, but if one of you sees kids as a deal breaker and the other doesn't then maybe it's time to face the music. 

4. Love Is The Easy Party 

He's the one when you realise that being in love is the easy part, and the rest of having a relationship is the hard part. It's the daily squabbles about washing up, bills and who last cleaned the bathroom that take work, if he's the one then the loving and supporting one another is the easy part, and life is the hard bit. 

5. He's Your Bestie 

You tell him everything, you don't keep secrets, you're not embarrassed to express your feelings and he's the first person you want to tell about your day. Grab onto that kind of love, it'll last a lot longer than the dude with really good abs who doesn't care about that amazing sandwich you ate for lunch.

No-one's perfect, but that's no excuse to be unreasonably jealous. Us girls are out here tryna shake the 'psycho girlfriend' tag, so help the team and reign in your jealous behaviour a little. If you do these 6 things, then you are a jealous girlfriend. And no, not the kind of jealous where it's justified or shows you care, the kind where 'stalker' pops to mind. 


1. You FB Stalk Every Girl He's Dated

...and you stalk them on a regular basis. If you know she went to Paris this weekend, then you've gone way too far. A inquisitive look on your significant other's ex girlfriend's page is normal, not healthy, but normal- to check it daily, and find out even detail about her isn't. There's a reason she's in the past, and that they're not together anymore, so give yourself more credit. 

2. You Check When He's Online

WhatsApp and FB messenger are your BFFs because they tell you when he was last active, and therefore if he's ignoring you. Ok, he shouldn't be avoiding your convos but maybe it's for innocent reasons. Or maybe it's because you're an OTT jealous GF who won't let him live. 

3. You Lie To Make Him Jealous

So in reality the only guy who hit on you today was the homeless dude who hangs around your neighbourhood, but the version you tell him, it may as well have been Brad Pitt's younger, better looking, brother. Or you lie and say your ex has hit you up. He should already know how lucky he is, jealousy isn't the right way to bring that out of him. Would it make you feel lucky if his ex wanted him back? Or would it make you feel insecure and angry? Yeah, thought so. 

4. You Read Into Everything He Does

A friend of mine legitimately uses the 'Find Your Friends' app to stalk her boyfriend's whereabouts. She plans how long his journey home takes to make sure he isn't lying about where he's been. Seriously, not normal or ok. Your other half has a life, and you need to let them live. Imagine how annoying and controlling it would be if someone asked you 100 questions every time you went to the shops.

5. You've Created Fake Profiles 

Please, please, please don't do this. If you don't trust them to this extent then the relationship is never going to work, and you need to call it quits. And work on yourself. Seriously. 

6. You Snoop 

Looked through his phone multiple times? Even rummaged through his trash? Get excited when you get the opportunity to do these things? Then take a long hard look at yourself, because you need a reality check. This is invasion of privacy. This is you ruining the trust, not him.

The green-eyed monster is not a cute look, yes we're all guilty of occasionally getting carried away but if these 6 points are familiar to you, and frequent, then you're an out of control jealous girlfriend. Check yo'self before you wreck yo'self babe.

If you've clicked on this article because you think you might be dating a f*ck boy, then you probably are. But don't worry gal, it's happened to the best of us. Make absolutely sure by seeing which of these 10 tell tale signs your other half is guilty of:


1. He doesn't believe in labels. 

You'll see each other most evenings, you've met his parents and friends but he doesn't call you his girlfriend. Even though you are, apart from you're not. You'll tell yourself he got hurt in a past relationship, or that it's better because there's less pressure and you can just chill. 

No hu-uunny. No. He does this, so that when you see him texting another girl, you can't freak out because you're not technically official or exclusive. Plus, it means he doesn't have to take any responsibility because you "were never officially together". 

2. He is a completely different person with his friends.

Everyone changes their personality slightly depending on who they're around, for instance I try and control my swearing when I'm with the grandparents. But the fella you're dating changes his personality completely. In private he might be sweet, caring and not an absolute douche. Yet when he's with his friends he turns into an idiot. 

Lad culture is not ok, and if he becomes an ignorant arse when around his 'boys', get out. You'll tell yourself that the real him is the one you see in private, but you don't know that. If he has that side to him, then girl, you don't want that in your life. 

3. In public he acts like he barely knows you.

A classic f*ck boy move is to not introduce you to people when you're out together, or call you his "friend". You need a partner who wants to scream your name from the rooftops. 

4. Every single one of his ex's he calls "crazy".

He thinks all his ex girlfriends were psychopaths, and that nothing that happened in his past relationships were his fault. Yet when you meet one of them she seems lovely, or friends of friends vouch that she's sane and just doesn't like being cheated on. They all wronged him in some way, and he acts like the victim. Gal, hate to break it to you, but mathematically they probably weren't all crazy, maybe he is...

5. He has zero ambition. 

He may have a job, but he hates it and blames the world for that fact. It's not his fault that he flunked his degree or hasn't been promoted- no it's the evil, cruel world that's victimising him. 

6. He is obsessed with how many people you've slept with.

He brags openly that he has bedded dozens of lady friends. You on the other hand don't see the point of 'numbers', because you are a functioning human being who has mentally matured over the age of 16. However, he won't drop it. 

If you cave and tell him, no number will ever be right. 2 and he'll call you a prude, 20 and he'll say some disgusting quote like "A key that opens many locks is a good key, but a lock that is opened by many keys is a bad key". Literally doesn't that saying just make you want to vomit and despair for the world. 

7. He uses the word "slut". 

This rule doesn't just apply to f*ck boys, if anyone in your life uses the word "slut" then cut them off. Honestly, just not ok. Side note, he will not hesitate in calling a woman a "slut" and branding her actions wrong but in the same vein will boast about all the "sluts he's banged". 

8. He is weirdly possessive with his phone.

Phones are private, and yes you should never break that trust and look through someone's phone. However, being jumpy every time he gets a text, shielding his password like he's typing in his pin at a cash point and taking it literally everywhere with him is not normal behaviour. F*ck boy alert. 

9. He goes M.I.A a lot. 

Sometimes he'll just randomly not speak or see you for a week at a time, and then pop back up in your life. Or never pop back up and then you find out he has a new girlfriend. Yeah, he's weighing up his options and keeping you in his roster. What a f*uck boy move.

10. He asks for nudes a lot and sends unsolicited dick pics. 

A classic f*ck boy tactic, why is this still a thing? I'm pretty sure an unsolicited dick pic has never worked on a woman. Also, if he's asking you for nudes he is probably asking 20 other girls too in the hopes that one of them responds. Ew. 

Any or most of these sound familiar? Then you, my friend, have got a f*ck boy on your hands. Once a f*ck boy, always a f*ck boy. So get rid, or just link him this article and I'm sure he'll get the picture...

Tom Hiddleston has finally broken his silence on his relationship with Taylor Swift, in a candid interview with GQ. Read the following extract, and prepare to fall in love with Tom *even* more... 

“Taylor is an amazing woman,” reads the prepared statement Tom Hiddleston has memorized and is now giving me at The Bull & Last, where his voice has gone low. “She’s generous and kind and lovely, and we had the best time.” But I didn’t ask that, I say. I asked something else. 

So I wait, and he says, “Of course it was real.” 

“The truth is, it was the Fourth of July and a public holiday and we were playing a game and I slipped and hurt my back. And I wanted to protect the graze from the sun and said, ’Does anyone have a T-shirt?’ And one of her friends said, ’I’ve got this.’ ” 

The friend pulled out the "I ♥ T.S." tank top that Taylor’s friends are contractually obligated to own. “And we all laughed about it. It was a joke.” So that’s his statement on the entire relationship: an explanation of the tank top. “It was a joke,” he repeats. “Among friends.” 

“I have to be so psychologically strong about not letting other people’s interpretations about my life affect my life. A relationship exists between two people. We will always know what it was. The narratives that are out there altogether have been extrapolated from pictures that were taken without consent or permission, with no context. Nobody had the context for that story. And I’m still trying to work out a way of having a personal life and protecting it, but also without hiding. So the hardest thing is that that was a joke among friends on the Fourth of July.” 

He still isn’t looking at me. The last piece of my steak is now poised on his fork in mid-air. He is so sad, and I can’t take it anymore, so I put my hand on his and I say, “Tom, Tom, it’s okay. You don’t have to talk about the tank top anymore. I got it. I understand. I’ll tell the world.” 

But he can’t stop talking about it. He literally cannot stop talking about it. “I don’t know,” he says. “I just, I was surprised. I was just surprised that it got so much attention. The tank top became an emblem of this thing.” It’s hard to tell me this, he says. He wants to trust me. He wants to trust that the world won’t use this to embarrass him again, but he doesn’t know. He just knows it will follow him until he talks about it. And anyway, none of this has anything to do with the person he fell in love with. 

“I only know the woman I met. She’s incredible.” But, man, all those cameras. “A relationship in the limelight… A relationship always takes work. A relationship in the limelight takes work. And it’s not just the limelight. It’s everything else.” He wanted a regular relationship. So did she, he says she said. “So we decided to go out for dinner, we decided to travel.”

After Sunday night's Screen Actors Guild Awards, winners struck a defiant tone against Trump's sweeping immigration ban. From emotional personal reflections to battle cries, all the speeches united in their disdain for Trump's latest policy: halting of immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim nations. 


Julia Louis-Dreyfus, while accepting another feather in her cap for Veep, made a gripping comment about the same. "I'm an American patriot. And I love this country. And because I love this country, I am horrified by its blemishes. This immigrant ban is a blemish, and it is un-American." As the daughter of an immigrant who fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France, Louis-Dreyfus' words shook the room. 

Taraji P. Henson, whose film Hidden Figures snagged the award for Best Movie Ensemble, was quick to add to the discourse. "This story is about unity," said Henson, alongside her costars Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae. ''This story is about what happens when we put our differences aside and we come together as a human race. We win. Love wins. Every time." 

But the most moving speech of all came from Mahershala Ali, who won best supporting actor for his acclaimed performance in Moonlight. Ali said the film, about a shy, gay Miami boy's hard life, holds lessons of acceptance. "We see what happens when you persecute people," Ali said. "The fold into themselves." Ali said his own relationship with his mother exemplified tolerance. The son of Protestant minister, Ali converted to Islam 17 years ago. But despite their clear differences, he says that love is stronger. "We put things to the side," Ali said of their differences. "I'm able to see her. She's able to see me. We love each other. The love has grown. That stuff is minutia. It's not that important."

Selena Gomez just made her relationship with the Insta Weeknd official. This is not a drill. The couple have been in Italy on a romantic break over the last few days, sightseeing in Florence and then Venice. 


Selena posted a video, which she has since deleted, captioned with the heart eyes emoji. But why did she delete it? Our hearts can't cope with this teasing. 

We're not 100% sure we're fully on board yet, as Selena has gone against some serious girl code by dating her mate's ex (Bella Hadid). But, they do look cute.

Valentine's Day is tricky terrain in any relationship. You want to show you care but to the right degree. In a new relationship? You don't want to go too over the top and scare them off. In a long-term committed relationship? You need something original that you haven't already done. Single? You need to get out and mingle. Read below for the ultimate dating guide...


New Relationship 

Don't pretend it's not happening, and completely skirt around the day. Confront it, make it funny.
You haven't put a label on things, and it's deffo too early to spend V-Day together, so just be honest. They're on the same page, but are too frightened to talk about it too. Send them a text along the lines of "Valentine's Day is coming up, that's a lot of pressure, shall we give it a miss or do something non-cringe?". 

Long-Term Relationship 

This your 8th Valentine's Day together? Romantic dinner and drinks getting a bit boring? Inject some spice and fun into the day and do something out of your comfort zone. Go play ping pong, go to a comedy show, go see burlesque. Get out of your V-Day funk. Oh, and sex toys. Lots of sex toys. Always the key. 

Single 

Single on Valentine's Day? Yup, that sucks. It feels like the world and their dog are in love and getting engaged, rather than spending the evening under your duvet crying at rom coms, get out and mingle. Go to a Galentine's Day event, or a single's Valentine's day party. Plus, if you're after a hook up, this is *statistically* the easiest day of the year to get laid- all the single people in the world are feeling lonely and just want a warm body. Enjoy.

Despite a lot of rumours, the pair have kept their relationship hush hush thus far. Until now. Perrie Edwards just made a very public declaration of love, on Instagram, of course. See the post in the gallery above!


So it's official, Perrie Edwards is now dating super hot Arsenal footballer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. There have been rumours since November, when Perrie was spotted at the Emirates stadium. 

A source told The Sun that "Both are keen to keep the relationship on the down low...after what happened with Zayn, Perrie doesn't want her love life to become public knowledge". That's clearly gone out the window.

Perrie, girl, I hope you're getting better sex...

Detoxing and dieting can be very dangerous and unhealthy if done in the wrong manner, or for the wrong reasons. 2017 has seen a backlash against body shaming brands pushing New Year diets, and we agree. 


Dieting and detoxing if done only to lose weight can be damaging; as soon as you stop, the weight piles back on. Plus, they can create an unhealthy relationship with food whereby people see it as "bad" or "indulgent". Food is sustenance and there to be enjoyed, so if you are trying to have a January health kick follow this 101 to make sure you're being safe...

The idea of a detox is a myth, there's the medical detox which is a treatment for those with life-threatening drug addictions. And then there's the other, pushed by slim-fast teas and other such commercial pursuits. If toxins did build up in your body that you were unable to excrete you'd be seriously ill- the body already detoxifies for you. That's the whole point of your kidneys and liver. 

So, put down the slimming teas that essentially are just laxatives, and don't do a 7 day juice cleanse for-heavens-sake. Drink less alcohol, eat less refined sugar, have a green smoothie to start your day and hit the gym. 

There's no magic science to being healthy. Eat well, exercise and be kind to yourself. Take some vitamins, or eat more kale, don't switch out meals for sh*t-inducing milkshakes. 

Go forth and smash that health kick, the healthy way....

First known for her role as Rachel Zane on the television show names Suits, Meghan Markle has come a long way. Since her relationship with Prince Harry hit the media, she quickly became the most Googled actress of 2016! 


However, people didn't take to the Internet just to look her up. The royal family's love interests usually bear the brunt of excessive unnecessary scrutiny, and Markle seemed to have faced the same. Because she has been divorced (from producer Trevor Engelson in 2013) in the past, many were quick to deem her unfit to date Prince Harry. And lately the remarks have gotten extremely personal, commenting on her family and her biracial upbringing. 

Markle hasn't made any statements about the same, but we're sure having this negativity around cannot be uplifting. However, we think she's still the bees knees, and love her (and her style) no matter what! She is a humanitarian activist who fights for women's rights and so much more, and is definitely someone that we aspire to be. You do you, boo! Us Shopcade girls are definitely on your team, no matter who you date or where you're from. <3
