    Why I Refuse To Date A Man Who Is Not Ready For A Real Relationship

    Why I Refuse To Date A Man Who Is Not Ready For A Real Relationship

    “We'll see what happens in the future.” That's pretty much the last thing he said to me about a month ago. The guy I was crazy in love with for 3 and a half years, the same guy who swore he would never “get curious,” was now telling me that he wants to go “see what's out there.” […]

    4 Ways Alcohol Reveals Who Your Ride-Or-Die Friends Really Are

    “Another shot!” my best friend yelled to the bartender. I smirked and shakily grabbed my eleventh tequila shot of the night. “She's trying to kill me!” I screamed after knocking it back. That's the last thing I could remember from that night, and it's all I needed to. It was my 24th birthday, and I knew I was in good […]

    Why It's OK To Still Be Affected By A Breakup Years Later

    Why It's OK To Still Be Affected By A Breakup Years Later

    The other day, I saw the spitting image of my ex on the platform of the F train. He had the same slightly crooked nose, mocha skin, 5'9″ body and Spartan-warrior haircut. I immediately looked away, but it was already too late. Those three seconds struck me like lightning bolts. A small tear trickled down my cheek as […]

    58 Inappropriate Thoughts You Have While Going Through A Sexual Dry Spell

    58 Inappropriate Thoughts You Have While Going Through A Sexual Dry Spell

    I've always wished I were a guy. Guys are practically guaranteed orgasms on the regular. They get to flail their members around like they're Skip-Its. In my experience, guys are also more likely to be OK with casual sex. If you know me, you know that I'm a demisexual. In other words, I don't let a guy get into me unless I […]

    Why People Leave Your Life Once They've Taught You All You Need To Know

    When my ex-boyfriend of three and a half years told me he wasn't in love with me anymore, I felt my ribcage crack into a million pieces. I could almost see it breaking, like a China Doll crashing into the ground in slow-motion. I thought I would never breathe again without him, and for awhile I […]

    What It's Like To Have A Smart Brain But A Dumb Heart

    What It's Like To Have A Smart Brain But A Dumb Heart

    Ever since I was little, I've done well in school. Honor societies and Dean's lists are nothing new to me. I went on to Fordham University, where I double-majored in photography and media studies and graduated with a 3.6 GPA — all while interning and working. In order to juggle all of my jobs and courses, I […]

    Why It's So Easy To Meet Assh*les, And So Hard To Meet Good People

    It's really easy to be an assh*le. You just have to not give a f*ck. You don't have to care about how your actions affect other people's feelings. You don't have to care about consequences. In simplest terms, your life is one big, lazy, f*cked-up Hakuna Matata. It's a lot harder to be a good person. It actually takes […]

    40 Struggles Of Being The Affectionate Person In The Office

    It's no secret that I am no stranger to affection. I could damn well be a professional hugger. And because I am naturally a VERY friendly person, it's pretty normal for me to do things like hold hands with my best friends. It probably doesn't help that I grew up around touchy-feely people. After all, being part […]

    5 Lessons I Learned When All Of My Exes Texted Me On My Birthday

    A few days ago, on my 24th birthday, I transformed into the happy, female version of Ebenezer Scrooge. Well, I seriously felt like him at least, when I was visited by the ghosts of Christmas past my failed relationships, after we'd had no contact for months. On March 10, I opened my Pisces eyes with mixed feelings about […]

    This Is How Daydreaming Can Actually Advance Your Career

    When I'm on my nine-to-five grind, I transform myself into Lewis Carroll's Alice. Every day, my mind melts office walls into a Wonderland of my own. You could even say that I have the mind of J.D. from “Scrubs.” He always daydreams, especially while he's at work, to help him get through his day. Daydreaming at work is a form of mental […]

    Why You Shouldn't Change Yourself, You Should Change The Person You're With

    Why You Shouldn't Change Yourself, You Should Change The Person You're With

    From my relationships with men, I've sadly come to find that some of their egos cannot handle being with an empowered woman. Perhaps this is because the portrayal of women in the media has hardwired male brains to believe that women are inferior to them — damsels in distress, if you will. And since they have […]
