Make Your Own Choice
I was recently called out on holding a supposedly strongly stance against marriage. Since it happened twice in one month, I feel like something I said was actually lost in translation.  I neve...

Give What You Get
A week ago, I got a text message from a guy I went on a date with… a year before. I didn’t expect to hear from him again (which is why I deleted his number), so I was pretty surprised.&...

How I Decided To Give Up This Beauty Race
It happens that I’ve been spending a lot of time on the Upper East Side recently, and must say one thing – there are a lot of fake faces out there. And it really annoys ...

Where Are You From?...Who Cares?
I can’t believe I have to write about this again, but it just bothers me so much, so here we go. Racism is alive and homophobia is alive, and if you think differently, you’re delusional&...

Step 61 - Find Your Lifestyle
As I said in one of my recent posts – the world has changed and the way we live has changed. I honestly think it’s time to reevaluate some ideas and solutions about the life we want to l...

Do you even want to get married?

Choose Your Own Relationship

What I Grew to Like Since I Moved To NYC


There have been many changes within me, more than I probably imagine. But there are a few visible ones: I grew to like: -          Donuts. I love Polish donuts, but I used to have them only once a year. Since I tried donuts from Doughnut Plant (have you ever tried a Pistacchio donut?), it became really difficult for me to avoid this place. I still h

Who Will You Meet On a 2-Hour Subway Ride?


I wrote about subway commute right after I started Just Like NY. People who have never visited NY, don’t realize how huge this city is. On Saturday I decided to visit my friend who works in the Bronx. And because I live down in Brighton Beach now and his stop was the last subway stop up in the Bronx, it was really quite a ride (see pic below). It took me 2.30h to get there! It would have t

Should Every Woman Have Kids?


I know it’s a difficult subject and I believe that everyone has an opinion about that. Which is good, because I have one of my own. I strongly believe that no: not every woman should have children. I’m almost 35 and I don’t have kids, I have no idea how it is and am not so sure if I want to know. What’s even funnier, the older I get, the less I’m sure if I want to h

What Do Independent Women Really Want?


You mean, other than sex? There are a few things. But to understand what an independent woman really wants, you have to first understand who she is. She is usually a well-educated woman, she is usually 25 and up – most likely, she’s in her 30s. When she is about to turn 30, she finally realizes who she is and what is it that she wants. And things start getting complicated. Because sh

I’ll Take You To a Temple.


Going to the gym is a huge part of NYC lifestyle. All my friends go to the gym and most of them go almost every day (ok, they're gay, but not all my friends are). The first thing that surprised me when I moved to NY was that gyms were cheap. Well, you can find the expensive ones too, but you can easily go to the gym for only $10 a month (!). I did that for a year. Some of them are $40 and $60 and

Immigrant Life


  I’ve been living in NYC for over three and a half years now. And boy, it’s been a real journey. No one can ever prepare you for that. You come over here thinking you’ll have a “Sex & the City” life and it’s not even fucking close. It’s difficult, different, there are so many unexpected things that are happening to you that you just start q

Holiday Season Is On… Yet Again


It’s amazing how they force the holiday season onto us here! There was still one week of November left when I walked into a bank and there were Christmas songs on. Calm down, people. This is what they do over here – the turkey leftovers are still on the table and they already turn Christmas season on. The Christmas trees came to town – they are already everywhere in the city &n

Why Did We Wake Up Sad on Wednesday Morning?


It’s been almost two weeks now, so it’s time to move on. We had the presidential election on Tuesday, November 8th and I this date will cut a deep mark on America’s body and psyche. What happened? Donald Trump won – and to say that many people didn’t expect it at all would be an understatement. Most people here in NYC, were just devastated. I watched the results wi
