To you, I’m just a “sort of”

To you, I’m just a “sort of”

He usually texts at around 2am. Sometimes I'll receive a sober phone call in the afternoon to "say hi," and other times it's a 4am, "Hey, what's up?" text. Never consistent, never expected, never sought after. I don't wait by the phone for a message to pop up. His name seems to be slightly larger than [...]

When you like the “wrong guy.”

When you like the “wrong guy.”

I’m supposed to like a certain type of guy. I have constructed this ideal man in my mind who shapes my taste in guys. He differentiates the right guys from the totally wrong ones. Ideally, he would be the perfect mix of smart, adventurous, confident, cute, friendly, blah blah blah. Let’s call this "ideal man" [...]

When you expect something to come out nothing.

When you expect something to come out nothing.

I walked by him at a party, surrounded by strangers and the piercing sound of rap music that I had no interest in listening to. I had never seen him before, despite him being in the same grade as me. "Beth's the kind of gal you take home to your parents," he drunkenly announced to his [...]

I don’t want my love story to start with tequila and Tinder

I don’t want my love story to start with tequila and Tinder

I was going to title this post "This Is What Happened When I Met A Tinder IRL" discussing about the time I unintentionally met a Tinder boy in real life a few days ago. The encounter was awkward, as expected, but the awkwardness seemed unwarranted for. He sat at a table at the bar with [...]

"She's crazy," says the indecisive ex-boyfriend who was sexting her the night before. "Dude, she started acting all possessive and texted me non-stop," remarks the ~*4 EvA*~ lifelong bro who refuses to commit yet introduced her to his family. "She's all of a sudden needy. I mean, like, we're not dating or anything," mumbled the dude [...]

Why the F*CK is dating a lot of people a bad thing?

Why the F*CK is dating a lot of people a bad thing?

Our 20's is a time for us to be selfish, to take risks. It's a time to travel the world, move to a different city, see what the world has to offer outside of our comfort zones. It's a time to find yourself, a time to begin your journey in the reality that we spent our [...]

Tinder Conversations: NY Edition

Happy Thanksgiving you filthy animals. I'm spending my Thanksgiving in Brooklyn with family, so to fight the FOMO about missing out on Thanksgiving Eve festivities with friends, I decided to do a bit of "social experiment," if that's what you'd like to call it. I only expected to do it to one or two guys, [...]

An Open Letter To All of My Future “Whatevers”

Dear My Future "Whatevers," Hey there, it's me, Beth. I don't know if our relationship will ever extend beyond texting or if you talk to me just to hold onto the hope of having sex with me. We may get married, or our first date might make us want to run for the hills. You [...]
