This National Coming Out Day I am grateful for

This National Coming Out Day I am grateful for … each time I have to come out to my maternal grandma (because the mind is a tricky thing as we get older). She continues to love me each time after being slightly shocked. This was alarming the first time, but it has been kind of […]

Friends & Friend Zone – Adventures in Online Dating

When you dive into the world of online dating, there are a few things to learn about making friends and the friend zone: Let’s just be friends. If you went on a first date with someone and after the date y’all decided to just be friends, that is a friend you’ll never hear from. If […]

Compromised

As another year passes by I see how conversations about dating with friends don’t only revolve around the intricacies of asking someone out or the friend zone. It also revolves around the delicateness of hooking up and friends with benefits. Asking someone out, the friend zone and friends with benefits all have their own struggles, […]

Be. More. Invested.

On the brink of graduation and truly for the last year I’ve noticed a lack of investment in people when it comes to our platonic relationships and potential romances.

Bold Touches: Eyes Shaded

Last weekend in preparation for travels, I took a break from working on a class project to grab dinner with friends and buy needed items before packing my bag that night.

What Is a Connection?

I walked to my scooter and contemplated – when feels like the right moment to go after someone romantically. I saw these two guys exchange numbers towards the end of our Pride Student Union open house after talking back and forth throughout the event. I thought about my crush. or as I like to say, […]

Fuck Yes or No

A friend shared with me this great article by Mark Manson , but if you allow it, this article extends beyond sexuality and even dating but to friendships and work.  I aim to stick to original content, but found this truly inspiring with great points. More vulgar than usual posts, but let’s all say, “Fuck […]

Happily Single

I sat on the Emerald Coast beach on the way back from a weekend trip to my hometown. A close friend and her boyfriend frolicked in the water together as I laid on a blue towel taking in the setting. I watched as these two people I know, and who genuinely care about each other […]
