We all pretend it’s normal…
We all pretend that life in NY is normal. Just today I had the day off, which isn’t usually for a Thursday, and I decided to go to the gym before noon. I got on a train at 10am and...

What If I Told You That You Can Have a Different Life?
I know I will sound very naïve now, but I had a recent revelation I would like to share with you. I started thinking about the choices we make and why we actually make them. Those who have rea...

Poor Rich Kids
I have mentioned money in NYC on Just Like NY a few times already. There is a lot of money here, and people spend lots of it on a variety of weird and stupid things sometimes....

Do You Want To Be Famous?
Because I’ve been living here for almost five years now, I tend to forget what kind of place NYC is. It’s where fantasy keeps meeting reality. The longer you live here, the more “...

Double Standard – Why Are Women Treated Differently?
I had a situation that I wrote about on Facebook, but I want to write more about it, because there is more to it.  So there was a guy, a customer of mine who I had met maybe three times, who&n...

Why Having a Boyfriend Will Not Make You Happy?
When I was a teenage girl (that is one week ago… just kidding), my biggest dream was to have a boyfriend. Especially since a weekly column called “Love Story” from “Bravo&r...

What Happens Once You Stop Caring If People Like You?
What happens once you stop caring if people like you…? It’s simple – your life starts changing. Yes, it’s that huge. One day I realized that it happened to me – that ...

Men and Sex
What is it that men want when it comes to sex…? The thing is: they want to have everything. Including a virgin. That’s the funniest part. I didn’t have a lot of sex in my life (c...

The Most Annoying American Family
I must say, I’m so fed up with these fake images and fake lives that are all over social media now. And there is one family that makes me especially angry. You’ve p...

Step 53 - Do You Have A Choice?
I believe I have already written about what I am about to say in this post, but I’ll be coming back to the subject, because it’s really important. I notice more and more often that we ge...

Step 52 - Don’t Assume (Or In Another Words, Don’t Judge)
We’re all guilty of it. We judge. And even if you say or think that you don’t, I have bad news for you – yes, you do. We all classify people based on our knowledge of the...

Stereotypes. Have Enough Class To Not Say Anything
I wrote about stereotypes already, but the longer I live here, the more I see that not much is changing in this matter. Living in NY will help you learn more about other cultures, but it doesn&rsq...

Do You Know Who You Are And What You Need? Whoopi Goldberg’s Thoughts on Relationships


I just finished reading Whoopi Goldberg’s book “I Someone Says ‘You Complete Me’, Run!”, which made me nod in astonishment as I read it. Not because Whoopi has opened some new horizons for me, but because I had the feeling I wrote the book myself. The famous actress writes about her observations of relationships, which she made quite a few since she started to host

„Honestly, Why Don’t You Have a Boyfriend?”


“But honestly: Why don’t you have a boyfriend/husband?” is one of those boomerang questions I keep getting and I keep not understanding, like the artist I wrote about in my previous post. First of all: what kind of question is that? Are we being born with a guy at our side, who then falls off? Or do you get a boyfriend the way you acquire knowledge during your school years, an

„Hey, Where Are You Going? It’s Friday Night In New York City”


It’s Friday night in New York City. You just had one of those pleasant evenings of hanging out with friends, you went to a couple of nice places, you had two drinks and you float towards the subway as it carried aloft by an invisible cloud. And suddenly you realize, you’re in Manhattan (believe it or not, but you can forget about it at times), right in the middle of one of the most b

3 Seconds, 3 Looks


Manhattan turns you into an animal. Your senses reach a new level; you’re like a jungle predator, receiving stimuli with every single part of your body and always ready to engage to meet your adversary. The difference is, in Manhattan your adversary is gorgeous and – instead of running away from him – you feel like climbing him instead. Over here, you stare at people practicall

Twentysomethings vs. Thirtysomethings


I’m over 30 myself, but I have friends who are a full decade younger and I keep noticing differences in our mental processes. I am so glad I have their stage already behind me!  (I came up with this post sitting in a coffee shop, thank God I had NY Times with me)   20 I met a guy! He’s amazing! He’s so funny, inteligent, we are into the same things! You know we ev

Meeting Bono


People have watched so many American films that when they finally come to NY, they are counting on a miracle. And if not a miracle, then at least something amazing enough to make their Instagram account explode. Everyone walks around in excitement and looks for… one doesn’t even know for what exactly. That’s why I was so amazed by a situation I saw recently. It all happened i

Dad Bod, or Plain Bullshit


I already wrote at Just Like NY about how New Yorkers take care of their good looks: they work out regularly and are careful about their eating habits. Everyone here tries to be fit – they don’t have much choice, since everyone else is. So when I suddenly hear that “dad bod” is the latest thing, my bullshit detector goes off. What’s “dad bod”? It’s

Looking For Sex


Because of a certain world-famous TV show, the word “sex” is one of the first ones to enter your mind when you think of NYC. But what’s the truth of it? The truth is exactly as seen on TV. I alreay wrote at Just Like NY of the dating sites, but in fact you don’t even need them to pleasantly spend your night  overhere. Or a day. Or a day, and then a night. All you nee
