Hello and welcome to our advice column, aptly named “Ask MR,” where we answer your burning questions in the hopes of being the ointment to your life rash. Ask us questions by emailing [email protected] with the subject line “ASK MR A QUESTION,” or leave yours in the comments.

Dear Man Repeller,

I think I found someone I want to be in a relationship with. Now what?

Your question is complicated. (Isn’t it always?) But in that same line of annoying relationship logic, it’s also really not. Let’s break up your sentence in order to break down the answers.

I think I found someone I want to be in a relationship with. Now what?”

Step one is to know that you want to be in a relationship with this person. New relationships are like puppies: sweet, fun, comforting, the best distraction in the world. There’s a lot of slobbering. But they are also a lot of work. You have to nourish them, work on them, smell another mouth’s morning breath, be willing to find a solution when something crashes down, learn how to keep your cool, steady your voice even when you want to scream. You have to be willing to see points of views that make no sense to you, hear out sides of arguments that you believe you’ve already won and eventually spend a lot of time with his or her family. The family thing doesn’t quite work with the dog metaphor but here’s one more truth that does: among an infinite amount of kisses, there is a lot of shit.

Entering a new relationship doesn’t mean you seal yourself into some contract you can’t get out of, but you want to go in with clarity, intention and eagerness. You want to know.

(And believe me: I have entered relationships without much intention, where I didn’t exactly know. I was just like, “This seems fun for right now!” And it was fun. They were fun. So either don’t listen to me, or know that I’m answering as though you asked about a potentially serious relationship. One that you’d like to last, whatever that means for you.)

“I think I found someone I want to be in a relationship with. Now what?”

Step two: The person you found has to want to be in a relationship with you, too. At the same time. While he/she is not monogamously committed to someone else. I cannot tell you how to make this happen. Humans have been trying to invent love potions and spells ever since the first case of unrequited love. Brush your teeth and be yourself.

“I think I found someone I want to be in a relationship with. Now what?”

Step three: You both have to agree on what “in a relationship means.” I’m all for ironing this out early. Be clear about your expectations to avoid hurtful confusion down the lines. Are we monogamous? (Again, in this scenario I’m assuming that this is a potentially serious relationship. In my own relationships, I don’t like to assume anything. I like to know.)

“I think I found someone I want to be in a relationship with. Now what?

Let’s say you’re past steps one through three. You’re sure you want to be in a relationship with Someone, and Someone is sure he or she wants to be in a relationship with you. You two either had a talk or slid into the togetherness unexpectedly. You’re on the same page of what “in a relationship means.”

Now what? It’s the last part of your question.

Now you enjoy the partnership. Enjoy the intimacy and comfort of this other body and brain. You’ll probably ask yourself things like, “Statistically, how did I find this person who also found me?” and “How did I get so lucky?” Take a lot of joy in knowing he or she is probably wondering the same. Take even more joy in knowing that now you don’t have to worry about a wedding date. I feel like my favorite thing about being in a relationship is being really annoying on purpose (“Hi. Hey. What should I eat for lunch? Look at this GIF. Hi again. You have a booger. Do I?”) without worrying about looking “clingy.” Actually, my favorite thing about being in a good relationship is just…not worrying. But still caring.

Remember when I said new relationships are puppies? They are, so you have to do your chores. You have to be prepared to clean up messes, be annoyed, be okay when the I’mobsessedwithyoulet’sneverleavethisbed-pleasekeepyourfacesmashedintomineatalltimes phase is over, and adjust as the puppy/relationship grows.

Once you’re in it, don’t stop doing the things you love to do. Don’t stop being you. Continue being an active participant in your already-existing (platonic) relationships. Make and keep plans with your best friends. As you and Someone blend worlds, keep holding on to yours.

And have fun.

When it comes to the art of adulting (make that functional adulting), the Betches are, to use 2016′s most abundant hashtag, #goals. You probably already follow them on Instagram, but the Betches—otherwise known as Aleen Kuperman, Samantha Fishbein, and Jordana Abraham—also have a website, two books, a store, and a newly minted podcast. In other words, they slay like it’s their job. Which it is.

As part of our recent collaboration, MarieClaire.com spoke to the Betches about four topics that are undoubtably on every aspiring adult’s mind: work, relationships, friends + family, and what we’re going to go ahead and call “mindfulness.” Let’s break this betch down.

In case you haven’t noticed based on their internet domination, the Betches are extremely good at what they do. They’re also definitive proof that millennials are not, in fact, wayward drifters who coast off the coattails of their parents. We’re the kick-ass generation that fostered three 20-somethings who run their own media empire—and the key to their success is being themselves. Sounds cliché, but it’s the straight-up truth.

“Be yourself,” Kuperman says. “We found a voice and were consistent with it. Be unique, and do something no one else has already done.”

Killing your career (like, in a good way) means you have to understand yourself, your strengths, and your weaknesses—and it also means you can’t care too much what other people think. “Not everyone’s going to love everything you do,” Fishbein explains. “The internet tends to get very extreme very quickly, people have no qualms about saying ‘I hate you, you’re the worst person ever, you should die.’ Everything gets very intense—and if you step back for ten seconds, you realize it’s just a post. In ten minutes, everyone will forget about it.”

Obviously, part of being a working female is dealing with sexism because #GlassCeiling, #Patriarchy, #Ugh, etc. And honestly, the best way (and the Betch way) to deal is rising above said sexism. “It’s definitely something women in power deal with,” Abraham says. “You deal with more scrutiny about the things you say. The best way to deal with that is to just keep succeeding and doing the best you can.”

Ways to stay sane: drinking wine, eating pizza, watching Netflix, and—if you’re one of the Betches—practicing the art of mindfulness. Due to being chained to their phones and computers Kuperman, Fishbein, and Abraham meditate at a place in New York City called MNDFL (get it, like Mindful, but without any pesky vowels?), which Samantha describes as ” like SoulCycle for sitting on a cushion.”

In his most recent sit-down with The Hollywood Reporter, he said that he “hasn’t heard anything more” about doing another season, and when it comes to potentially reprising Logan, he feels it’s “really just finished,” and developing more isn’t really in anybody’s mind-frame right now. “Certainly, coming into this, this was the last four chapters. [...] If there’s a reason why fans want more, I think it’s just not because of those four words, it’s because everything felt organic and right throughout all four chapters.”

U.K.-based sportswear brand Umbro just got a seriously cool update. For their spring 2017 collection, the brand teamed up with London label House of Holland to create a 24-piece unisex collection that’s out of this world. 

The Manchester brand, known for their rich heritage in soccer apparel (think: jerseys, cleats, and training gear), totally rethought their signature designs. The new offering is comprised of crew-neck jerseys, vest tops, sweatshirts, and sweatpants that channel House of Holland’s signature loud aesthetic. You can expect an array of lively prints, oversize logos, and vibrant colors—it’s a total ‘90s throwback. Prices will range from $80 to $431.

We all need a snakeskin print soccer jersey and short set, whether we actually play sports or not. Go ahead and mark your calendars, as you can start rocking this collab come December 15, no soccer skills required. Stateside you can snag the goods at UrbanOutfitters.com and ASOS.com.

Algunos clubes españoles están imponiendo a sus jugadoras contratos con cláusulas anti-embarazo. Les invitan a firmar contratos ilegales si quieren continuar con su carrera deportiva.

En estos contratos el embarazo se compara con otros comportamientos antideportivos como el dopaje, por poner un ejemplo. Y según los expertos en derecho laboral, es algo totalmente ilegal y que debería ser perseguido.
