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...

You Have to Kiss a Lot of Frogs To… Find the Frog That Rises to Your Standards
I’ve had a few men in my life so far, and they always disappeared at some point (nowadays, I realize that they actually did me a favor). Once, I used to think it was the end of the world, but ...

You Have To Punch Back
There is a saying in NY: If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. And there is a reason for that. I always say that a relationship with this city is like a relationship with an abusive boy...

Why Does Time Have Value
I recently noticed that I’m able to guess how long a person have lived in NYC. It’s not that I know the exact number of years, but I can recognize if someone has been living here for jus...

Wait For the Understanding Nod
I recently chatted on Instagram with a guy (we haven’t met in real life, he just saw my photos on social media) and he said this thing, and I quote: “How come you’re still single? ...

Step 63 - It’s All About Priorities
I know a guy in NY who doesn’t like to spend money on a cup of coffee. He doesn’t understand why anyone would spend $6 on a cup of coffee when you can pay $15 for a whole bag. But at the...

“The Top Five Regrets of Dying” - Regret Number One
This is a continuation of my posts about Bronnie Ware’s “The Top Five Regrets of Dying,” this being the last one. I wrote about Regret Numbers Five, Four, Three and Two here. Regr...

Love is Born
I watched “A Star is born” recently and can’t stop thinking about this movie.  It’s a story that has been told in Hollywood many times already: that of a seasoned mus...

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

Bumbling Around


Me and a couple of friends have been chatting recently at a bar and we all started gossiping about a guy we see there often. He’s a cute, thirtyish, innocently looking American guy who keeps bringing to the place newer and newer girls. We saw him a few times with the same woman (they were tenderly hugging), which meant unfortunately that the girl didn’t know yet that she was being pl

Red Flag, or When You Know You Better Let This One Go


You meet a nice guy, you think that “this is it”, but at the same time you feel it’s not quite right. Here are 10 surefire signs that you should just let the guy go. I base those on my own experiences and on experiences of my girlfriends – both in Poland and here in NY. 1.       He’s not replying to your text messages on the same day.

Date No. 1: Screwing on the Choo-Choo


Since summer has finally arrived – and with it, dozens of sexy guys in tank tops – I was reminded of several dating stories me and my girlfriends have experienced in NYC. I decided to share some of them, without revealing the identities of the girls (or the guys, whose names I frankly don’t remember). Today’s heroine’s name is Anna. I wrote many times on Just Like

Do I Have Time For You…? Or: Why Dating in NY Is So Difficult


I recently read an article on dating in NY, which confirmed once again that it’s one of the most difficult activities in this town (which I already wrote about). As I said before on this blog, there are several reasons for that, but the longer I live here, the more I can see the source of them all. The most common scenario – which has happened both to me and to my female friends &nd

Singular Wisdom


I never did this before, but a piece in Time Out New York amused me so much, I decided to copy it here and allow you to enjoy it, too. What follows is a bunch of sentences by NYC singles and I believe every one of them to be true. „I braved a snowstorm at 1am to get AA batteries from the bodega for my vibrator”. “I pretty frequently sit in bed and cry tears of happiness onto

Ocean of small fry


I don’t agree that internet dating is necessarily a sign of desperation, as is still believed by many. Nowadays, when we basically live hooked up to the internet, no one should be shocked that we also meet one another online. I decided to try it, too, because… why not? There’s a multitude of dating websites in the US; the one that was recommended to me is called Plenty of Fish
