My Hopes For The Last Quarter Of 2022

We are officially in the last quarter of the year. I feel like the year flew by far too fast. I’ve barely had any time to catch my breath and time has just been rushing by. Honestly, I wish I had used my time better. I have felt incredibly demotivated for most of 2022. It…

Unspoken Words

My grandmother passed away last week. She was 87 years old and had been long suffering from Parkinson’s disease. She had had a fall in May which had her bedridden post-surgery. In all honesty, all of us were a little relieved for her that her suffering was finally over. Over the past few years every…

Things I Don’t Find Romantic Anymore

I’ve been an old school romantic since I was a teenager. I dreamt of a knight in shining armour sweeping me off my feet and “completing” me. I swooned while watching over the top proposals in movies and cried for days while reading romantic books like The Notebook and PS: I Love You. But over…

Monsoon In My City

I love rainy season. It feels like the entire world around is getting cleansed for a new start. When I was younger I always connected rains with romance. In school, my friends and I would sing romantic songs, get drenched in the rain and discuss our crushes. When I was even younger, I loved splashing…

Dating Life: Things I Don’t Want In A Man

I had a whole other post scheduled to be posted today but I needed to vent about a bad date I went on recently (read as: last night). I understand that not all dates amount to something and I only ever write about really bad dates or really good dates – cause the ones in…

5 Thoughts I have While Using Dating Apps

I hate dating apps just cause I find that being active on dating apps is a lot of effort. The type of effort I just don’t feel like putting in right now. Why can’t I just meet someone at a coffee shop or at a party or at a bookstore? Oh right, I hate going…

Beinaheleiden Schaftsgegenstand

I’ve been rewatching ‘How I Met Your Mother’ over the past few weeks. I first started watching it almost a decade back, as a single 20-year-old, wondering why Ted wasn’t just able to find love when it was the one thing he wanted so bad. As much as I related to his dating fails, I…

My First Love

Disclaimer: This is a very random post and not sponsored. 😛 The year was 2011. My family and I were travelling through Egypt. Our tour stopped at a local bazaar for shopping. As we scrutinized the shops wondering where we should go with all the vendors trying to catch our attention, we heard the words…

Dating Life: What I Want In A Man?

While growing up I had this long checklist of what my ‘prince charming’ will be like – tall, dark, dimples, rich, funny, etc. But over the past 3-4 years, the list has gotten a lot shorter and way more practical. The men I’ve dated have helped me identify the qualities I’d appreciate in the person…
