9 Men And Women Get Real About Their Relationship Resolutions For 2016

December 16, 2015 4 min read

It is nearly 2016 and you may be starting to think long and hard about how you can become the best possible version of yourself. Along with diet and weight loss, love and relationships get a lot of focus around resolution time. 2016 relationship resolutions Relationships are often a hot topic, so Women's Health asked 9 men and women about their relationship goals, plans and objectives for the year ahead. Here are the funniest and most thoughtful resolutions: 1. “I want to go after what I really want more often, even if I don’t think I’ll get it. I feel like I’ve been settling too much in recent years for people who I’m not a great match with or who I don’t even find all that attractive, so this year I’m going to go for people I like even if I think they’re out of my league. So I guess you can say I’ll spend less time being fearful of getting rejected, too.” —Holly H. 2. “I’d like to try a breakfast date! I’m sick of getting all anxious for first dates and having to deal with that anxiety and nervousness the entire work day. Why can’t we have dates at breakfast time, before work starts? That way, if it goes awfully you have all day to rebound. But if it goes well, you’ll be happy all day! Plus, this way, I’ll avoid getting too drunk and either having sex or making an liquored-up fool of myself on the first date.” —Amanda P. 3. “I’d like to try roleplaying with my wife. We’ve been together since high school, and though sex together never gets old, I think it’d be fun to introduce some new aspects that can spice things up.” —Tyler F. 4. “I’d like to keep up blatantly ignoring the alleged ‘rules’ that come with dating, like waiting a few days to call or text or whatever. I’ve had plenty of success this year asking for a second date toward the end of the first. I only do this when I feel like it’s going really well, obviously. There have been times when I’ve been denied, but in either case, I at least save myself the anxiety of waiting around to ask a few days later. A few times, a girl has said ‘sure’ then never texted me back, but oh, well—it’s her loss.” —Scott P. [bctt tweet="9 Men And Women Get Real About Their Relationship Resolutions For 2016"] 5. “I’d like to be less indecisive before and on dates. I feel like I’ve hurt myself by being too timid about activity and venue during the date’s planning stages and also about what to do while we’re actually together. I used to think women would like it if I was like, ‘We can do whatever you want,’ but now I realize that just seems like a cop-out to make them do the planning because you’re too worried you’ll choose something they won’t dig. I think it’s better to just take charge.” —Nathan R. 6. “I’d like to try actually approaching a woman in a bar and engaging in conversation and asking if I can buy her a drink. I’m 26, and I’ve never done that once. How sad is that? I’ve spent hours scouring dating apps and websites, but I’ve never just hit on a girl the old fashioned way. This is gonna be the year, though! At least I hope. I don’t know. I’m shy.” —Sam W. 7. “I’d like to keep up not fighting with my boyfriend. I love him to death, but I realized not so long ago that fighting with him is an exercise in futility because he actively enjoys fighting and winning. I used to engage him almost all the time, but now I let a lot of things, especially menial things, go—and it’s been better for our relationship. It’s also a lot of fun for me to see how angry he gets for a few minutes when he realizes I’m not going to fight with him about something.” —Christina K. 8. “I’d like to spend less following up after dates with guys who don’t follow up with me. F*ck those people. I mean, not literally. I mean they can die never knowing what it’s like to have been inside of me!” —Becky C. 9. “I’d like to keep not ghosting on people. It’s tough to send that message saying you don’t think things will work out, but as soon as you send it, you feel much better. You know, like you’re not a cowardly and inconsiderate asshole.” —Henry Y. There you have it! Are there any that speak to you? Confidence and honesty seem to be a big theme. No one should have to settle for bad behaviour and you'd be surprised how much joy you can find by simply expressing an interest, or making your needs known! What are your relationship resolutions for 2016?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
