Don’t judge by the chapter you walked into.
It’s a new year, so I want you to change one thing. I would say “we,” but I’ve already been working on it the last two years (not that I’ve mastered it yet). Don’...

Why Some Women Don’t Want to Have Kids (And Why the Reason Is Not What You Think It Is)
Yes, I want to write about it (again), because it bothers me. I recently realized I don’t want to have kids (now and maybe ever). And I realized how difficult it is for a woman not only to adm...

You’re Fine
2018 has been a very successful year for me, because I finally understand that I’m completely fine. I just look at myself and I finally see myself. It took me half my life to understand it, bu...

It’s Profound to Be Understood
As Whoopi Goldberg said in her book „If He Says: ‚You complete me’ — Run!”, which I’ve already written about on JLNY some time ago, people tend to mistake love fo...

You’re Always Becoming
Michelle Obama released her book memoir, „Becoming”, and I keep seeing it everywhere in NYC. I haven’t read it yet and now I really want to. Not because I consider Barack Obam...

Drop This Attitude
I just had my best friend Gosia visited me from Chicago a few weeks ago. We spent the whole weekend together excited about each other. We did a few activities, but what was the most important was th...

Is Your Partner’s Skin Color or Country of Origin Relevant At All?
I will answer the titular question right away: „I don’t think so”. And I’m pretty sure I am right. I honestly don’t understand this whole theory about having a partner ...

How To Get the Body You Want
Have you ever said to yourself: “I’m so fat”…? Or “I can’t even look at myself”…?. Or “I will never lose all this weight”…? Or &l...

Accept the challenge
Until now, my favorite sentence was always: “Hope he’ll change after we get married.” (Yeah,  sure, into a pumpkin…) But there is a new contender that I find equally ...

NY Love Story A.D. 2019
I don’t like romantic comedies. And I can tell you why. Once, it used to be my favorite genre, but I grew up since then (a bit). Also — I moved to NY. Romantic comedies just don’t ...

When Was the Last Time Your Journal Embarrassed You?
When was the last time you said to yourself: “This is embarrassing”, and you actually meant yourself…? Well, it just happened to me. I sat down to write about something else and I...

Why It’s Important To Not Look Like Shit
Here is my question: Why do you think it’s a good idea to look like shit at home? Some people put on their worst clothes at home - clothes with holes, stretched out, worn out, old and ugly. (B...

Fear vs. Happiness. Why Stay Stuck In a Bad Relationship?


I haven’t been in a relationship in a while, since I focused on discovering who I am and developing a relationship with myself and with the city – as well as on simply surviving in NYC. Given all that, some people will probably say I have no business giving my opinions on relationships. Maybe so, but I’m gonna give one anyway. I am looking from the side, I look from a different

Will The Cheaters Keep On Cheating?


As I sat at Starbucks yesterday waiting for my friend, I overheard a loud conversation between two baristas. I don’t know why, but suddenly I turned their way and one of them, a handsome guy in his early twenties (who earlier addressed me as “madam”, which only goes to prove you won’t cheat your wrinkles), asked me: “Do you agree with me?”. When I admitted I h

Booty Call


Being single is shrouded in many myths, but the biggest one is the one regarding sex. Couples tend to think that we single people have someone new every night (wishful thinking). Sure, we would like that, but it’s more complicated than you’d think (we have our careers to focus on, after all). As I started writing down my thoughts on the world of single people’s sex life, I ins

Dating is Hard Work


How does look a date in New York look like? Why even ask about it? Are you familiar with the saying: “It’s the journey that matters, not the destination?”. Hell, yeah: you better remember that one if you start dating in NYC. You meet a guy. HE’S STRAIGHT! Yup, it can really happen! You exchange numbers, he says something about a meeting. Magic, isn’t it?! It even l

Where To Meet a Guy?


East Village Every time I hear the question: “Where do I meet a guy?”, I smile. I wrote about that already. What do you mean: where? Girl, go to a bar! Not to a club where everyone is dancing like crazy and you can never be sure just how much coke has anyone snorted (for some reason, coke seems to be all the rage). Go to a bar. And don’t take your girlfriends with you, so that

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
