5 lessons from the Kardashians that will make you feel calmer about your love life


Okay, we have to admit something. WE LOVE THE KARDASHIANS (*gulp*). Don’t judge us, alright?! Yep, we love nothing more than keeping up with the Kardashian klan because they all offer something new. Kim makes us feel better about looking a little silly when we cry because nothing will compare to her epic cry face. Khloe makes us feel better about feeling like the odd-sister-out. Kourtney makes us feel better about actually watching TV and being up to date with general knowledge. And then Kylie and Kendall make us feel better because they allow us to live in the hope that we’ll all one day be best friends. But things don’t stop there. These are 5 lessons you can learn from the Kardashians that will make you feel calmer about your love life…

Never settle for anything less than perfect

We’re looking at you here, Kim. After watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians religiously for the past decade, we’ve had the chance to watch her many romantic exploits. And when we say “many,” we really mean her “extremely long list.” Although Kim was distraught when she announced her divorce from the uber-tall Kris Humphries, most of her fans were sat in front of their screens screaming “I told you so” at her pixels. This is because she KNEW that he wasn’t right for her, and knew that he wasn’t what she wanted – yet she settled for him anyway. Well, we know how that turned out…

Just because you haven’t been successful doesn’t mean you won’t be

Most of the Kardashian klan have had their fair share of boyfriends in the past, and almost all of them have ended in heartbreak, tears, and another pot of salad that they seem to continuously eat. While we normally switch out salad for ice cream, we’ve all been in that situation – but just because you haven’t been romantically successful in the past doesn’t mean you will never be. Don’t believe us? Just look at Koko! After a failed marriage to Lamar Odom and a struggle to get pregnant, Khloe found love in her new beau, Tristan Thompson, and is getting ready to pop out their first child.

Don’t be scared to walk away from a bad relationship

We think you know who we’re talking about right now. Yep, Kourtney and Scott… the Romeo and Juliet of Calabasas! For some fans, Kourtney and Scott are the perfect couple. They have the most adorable kids, they have the best humor, and they just look so darn good together. Yet, we’ve seen throughout Keeping Up With The Kardashians that their on-and-off relationship has often been toxic. In recent years, Kourtney finally waved goodbye to her Lord and is now living the high life with her French beau, Younes Bendjima.

Don’t be afraid to date someone who isn’t your type

Most of us all swear by the idea that we have our own type. We have specific looks that we look out for, we have personality traits that we need in a partner, and we won’t settle for anything less. Yet, when you segregate a very large portion of the population because of their questionable hairstyle, you’re kinda limiting your options. Just look at Kris Jenner! This momager shocked the world when she started dating Corey Gamble – but it kind works.

Trust your instincts

If you cried as much as we did to Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy video, you might not have heard Kylie’s bestie, Jordyn Woods, noting that Kylie and Travis Scott instantly connected when they first met – and that’s exactly what you look for. If you meet someone and have a gut feeling that you need them in your life, don’t ignore it! Trust your instincts, y’all.

I mean, could the Kardashians get any cooler? We think not. Hopefully you’ll now have all the Kardashian knowledge to fix up your love life – pronto!
