5 Phases to Pass When You Suck at Love

So, I spent my quarantine time binge-watching The Mindy Project in the past few weeks. No kidding, I’ve just finished the last episode of its final season. Not to mention that I actually started watching it from the pilot episode. So yes, I have a lot of things to say about it because the ending was kind of disappointing. 

Regardless of what I think about the ending, I think about the whole series and it gave me an epiphany to start writing this piece. 

I could relate so much to Mindy when it comes to her dating experience. I mean, if you really gotta count how many guys I’ve slept with, you would probably think of me as a slut. Look, I’m not proud of my achievement in that case but if there’s anything I understand, it is probably because I simply suck at love. 

I texted my best friend yesterday, I told her that I don’t know how it is to be in a healthy relationship that whenever I am in one, it’s like just a ticking bomb where I count the time until I sabotage it. That’s when I realized that those who suck at love like I do, they could probably relate to these 5 phases they’ve passed throughout their romance life.

At least I have.

Can I Find a Hookup on BeNaughty?

While this might not be for everyone, for others it could be the perfect combination of casual sex and no commitments. People looking for ‘action’ that works around their work schedule or lifestyle, or they’re new to the game and just looking to experience a new intimacy. And I’m all for trying new things.

There are many reasons why a person would delve into this side of ‘lust’ and love, some of which we will touch on later on in this article, but they aren’t that far off from what we consider ok or normal.

What I’ve Learned from Long-Distance Relationship: Things that Work and Things that Don’t

I’m not saying I’m an expert at long-distance relationships, but I was in a few relationships where I had to be apart from my (now ex) boyfriend. It’s like, I knew that long-distance relationships would be hard, but damn I fell for the guys who live a thousand miles over and over again.

In my last relationship, we had to do long-distance since my ex is doing his PhD in the Netherlands. A few years before then, I was also in a relationship with someone who lived in Istanbul when I was based in Jeddah.

I know too well it’s challenging, it’s just that… When you know, you know the right person for you. It doesn’t really matter if you end up to be with them forever or they’re just there for lessons.

2020 New Year’s Resolution: My Goals to Embrace the New Decade

Merry Christmas, everyone! 😀

As you may already know, I don’t really celebrate Christmas. But spiritually, I definitely love the holiday seasons as well as the season’s greeting that always comes up with gifts and cookies. Anyway, since I don’t really follow Christmas tradition as I grew up mostly in a Muslim household… I’ll take some time to write about my new year’s resolution for 2020 instead.

It’s gonna be exciting. New year, a new decade, and some more new place(s) to explore in the future… My new year’s resolution for next year definitely marks my adulting life. Why? Well, let’s see!

10 Years Challenge: This Decade on My Beau, Beauty, and Travel Journey

I just got back from an event in Jakarta when I felt like I lost motivation to do almost everything, including updating my blog. It’s like, not only did I get some kind of writer’s block but I just felt like taking naps every time. It was only this afternoon that the 10 years challenge came across my mind.

I remember that this 10 years challenge was hyped a few months ago on Instagram. Well, I am not really active at the platform, but I figure I could also apply this challenge on my blog instead. After all, the end of 2019 is kind of special since it’s the end of this decade.

While I usually create a post to look back my whole year to match up with the resolution that I made earlier that year, I decide to make something different this time. Instead of looking back to 2019 only, why not trying to flashback and see my personal growth within this decade?!

No kidding, I even scrolled down my Facebook gallery to find some pics I took within the decade. I’ve been through a lot, and even just by looking at my Facebook gallery, I know that I’ve grown far from the bubbly 20-years-old I was 10 years ago.
