Dating while black

Does anyone else go onto their online dating profiles and swipe on a ton of people and get like no matches?

Yea same.

Or do you match with someone who think is great and you text for 3 weeks, have great chemistry, and make plans to meet up only to have them cancel and ghost?

Yea same.

What about when you finally do match with a bunch of people and send admittingly generic and not clever messages but still cute and never get a response?

Yea same.

In the Dream Machine

Ok I really need to get better about posting. But 1 week ago I went to an exhibit I’m Williamsburg called dream Machine. I saw some of my friends excellent thirst traps on instagram and decided to join in the fun. Tickets are $40 each and this gives you a specific time slot, enthusiastic tour guide who’s sole purpose is to make sure you get as many photos/boomerangs as possible. Seriously these guys are like professional Instagram photogs. They art direct, they style and they give out free candy. I’m really into exhibits like this because they are 102092 times less crowded than normal ones and it gives you more than enough time to browse and pose for photos. The only thing I wish was different was more explanation of each room. Who designed it and what was their inspiration. Although I got some amazing thirst traps (see below) I also like to be educated too.

Recommend 10/10.

Hawaiian Adventures

I decided to go to Hawaii with my best friend for my birthday (yes Sagittarius season) best decision ever. I hate the cold weather and New York in the winter seems to have even more tourists then it does during the summer (how?). When I left it was snowing and despite the 11 hour trip (it’s brutal people – and anyone who reads this blog knows I travel) it was worth it. Here’s a few of my fav shots.
