I sat with my friends in college talking about our dating lives. We discussed how we hoped we’d actually like whoever was lucky enough to date our friend – approve of them. After all, if our friends are our true soulmates, then shouldn’t we approve of who they end up with? But as my friends’Continue reading “Our Friend’s Relationships Are Not Our Own”

Sitting at the Table
I told myself a couple of months ago, you just have to do better. This is what 2015 is about for you. Last week for the first time I felt back in center with one-part of who I am by working on this. Amongst my list of aspirational strides, I knew I simply needed toContinue reading “Sitting at the Table”
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,Continue reading “Compromised”
Too Tired, Too Sleepy Or Hungover
She never wants someone to remember her as the one who was too tired, too sleepy or even hungover. Last night Miss America 2014 Nina Davulri mentioned being told some people will only meet Miss America once in their life. Nina realized she would be that Miss America for some people. We only meet some people once inContinue reading “Too Tired, Too Sleepy Or Hungover”
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.

One of my friends interned in NYC this summer, so we decided to catch up over brunch at her home with her roommate. I wanted to soak in all things big city from her, even though myContinue reading “Bold Touches: Brunch”
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,Continue reading “What Is a Connection?”
Bold Outside. Bold Insight.
After an almost one month summer hiatus, I will return to my normal schedule of sporadic but methodic blogging August 21. Sometimes you have to rejuvenate yourself, gain insight and take a peak into the next chapter before you begin in it. What’s ahead? There will be lots of exciting posts discussing a first date,Continue reading “Bold Outside. Bold Insight.”
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, “FuckContinue reading “Fuck Yes or No”
We want to believe that if we believe in people, if we believe in ourselves, life rewards us. But the honest to goodness truth is you’re left sometimes feeling like an outsider on your own life and desires. Desire sometimes leaves you heartbroken. If you believe in believing one more time, this can be theContinue reading “You Believed”
