Step 44 - How Do You See Yourself?
photo by http://www.wdkproductions.com/ I wonder what kind of picture of yourself do you have in your own mind? I’m not asking about the one you present to the world, but about the real ...

Walk with me, Part 4 – Nolita
Nolita is right next to Soho and I was thinking of putting these two walks together – and you could do that of course – but there are just too many things to explore in each neighborhood s...

Step 43: Have the Courage to Stand Alone
Photo by wdkproductions.com I heard this sentence: “Have the courage to stand alone”, spoken by Brene Brown in a conversation with Marie Forleo a few weeks ago, and it keeps ringing in ...

Walk with Me, Part 3 – Soho
  Soho is one of my favorite places in NY. And it’s not because of the fancy stores (I don’t have the desire to buy a Chanel bag, I want someone to give me that bag for free.) It's...

Step 42 – How do we not go crazy?
It’s very easy to go crazy in NY. It’s way too easy. That’s why at some point, you have to slow down and ask yourself how your mind is doing. There are a few different ways I ...

Step 41 – Close the Open Tabs
I recently noticed that everyone, including myself, says, “OMG, this month passed by so fast! Where did the time go?” And I feel that every year we say it more often. Have you noticed th...

The Bridges of Madison County - A Cautionary Tale
I’ve been coming back to old movies recently and watched one of my favorite movies of all time – “The Bridges of Madison County” with my favorite actress, Meryl Str...

Brooklyn vs. Manhattan
It’s funny how Manhattan and Brooklyn are different, even though they are only a river away. They are actually just one subway stop away (which is a few minutes’ distance). A lot of peop...

Women’s Surf Film Festival
I finally attended Women’s Surf Film Festival that took place at Rockaway Beach Surf Club on the last Friday and Saturday of July. I didn’t see all the movies (they’re mostly short...

Birthday
35 years ago, a miracle happened and I came into this world. And everything changed. I’m kidding. Nothing changed, except for the fact that the world got a bit confused. When I was a little ...

Yelp & Health
If you are running a restaurant business in NYC, you always fear of two things: Health Department and Yelp reviews. Health Department comes to a restaurant once a year and checks everything &ndash...

Racism Is Still Alive
I just had a chance to watch a new movie called “Crown Heights” and I must say it was a really painful screening for me. Had I watched it back in Poland, I would probably look at it as j...

Guys and Their Penises

added: 2017-05-07 , category: It's all about sex

I wasn’t planning on writing about it, but hey, you guys left me no choice! I wanted online dating, so here it is. There was in fact not that much actual dating, but there are other things to talk about. Even when you try to make something more serious out of it, they just don’t let you. I just met a guy, it was our first conversation. I said to him that he looked like a guy who knew what he wanted, and he clearly proved me right by responding: “Do you want to hook up tonight?”. Could one be more direct than that…? Hm…in a second I’ll prove that… surprisingly yes, one could.

There is something about guys and their penises. One of my friends once said: “To be honest with you, we, straight guys love our penises and all we want to do is to show it to everyone”. And you know what? I believe him now. It’s truly amazing – as soon as you start texting with a guy, you should send him a warning: Please don’t send me a dick pic (I wrote about it already on Just Like NY). He would say: “I’d never”, and he might even not send you one. Great, right? But hey, it’s 2017, so we’ll get a video instead. Yeah, you heard me right – a dick video. The great thing about it is, you’d be laughing like crazy and laughing is good for you. If there are straight guys reading this, let me tell you one thing – you might want to sit down first – your penis doesn’t impress us. It’s not the thing that turns us on. We don’t care (unless it’s really small). I’m speaking on behalf of most of the women (it’s different with gay men: they love dicks, so maybe you should be sending them your pics, I guarantee they will go crazy!). So get over it. Work on your muscles instead – and send us a pic of your muscular body.

I think I’m done with online dating for now – and it’s not because I don’t believe in it, or because I don’t want to watch any videos (there is no dialogue, but the cinematography is not bad overall). It’s because it is really time-consuming and that’s why I didn’t even want to get involved in that in the first place. You have to go through too many guys before you meet someone who is actually worth your time. The chances that you both swipe at the same time and that he would notice that you started the conversation are just too small as for me to spend my time on it. I just get bored so easily… and I got bored with that after two weeks. And yes, in order to be with someone, you need to put in some work, but you know what…? Maybe it’s not my time yet. Swiping left and right might be fun (and turns out you might get some fun on a date, too), but I prefer to walk around Manhattan and wave and smile to guys. And I think that the odds that I’d spot someone interesting are the same as they’re for meeting someone online, or maybe even bigger. I just prefer a personal contact to social media and I am not afraid of guys anymore, but if you’re too shy, probably the app is the best solution for you. It’s not cut out for my type of personality. I shine better on the streets than on the phone screens (and this is what I heard from a guy on a date I got through this app). After 3 weeks of not using it that much I had one date – and I can tell you this date was worth downloading the app. So the choice is yours, but I think it’s good to have some fun from time to time.
