Unwanted and Not Welcomed

One of the hardest things in life to experience is the feeling of being unwanted or not welcomed by the presence of others.  It can happen in the midst of making friends, building relationships (or being in one), and finding acceptance. It can happen out of emotions like prejudice, competition, jealousy, or simply being under appreciated, or recognized. Generally, no one likes the feeling of being unwanted. But unfortunately in the past year I have more than ever experienced the situation of being unwanted and unwelcome by others, and it has been pretty painful and difficult to cope with. Read more

Surviving the U.S. – “The American Dream”

The media seems to over fantasize the definition of “The American Dream” into glitz and glamour that doesn’t necessarily always play out to the reality that exists in the United States.  There seems to be this misconception that as soon as someone from a “3rd world country” hits the states, they’ll hit jackpot. Many don’t realize the reality is that poverty, prostitution, and slavery still exists in the United States.  Educated people sometimes fall downhill despite hard work. But the hard hard life publicized in “3rd world countries”  are things the media don’t often tell you that exists also in the U.S.  So is there such thing as freedom and the “The American Dream?” Read more

Designated Boyfriend

I remember a few years ago, a friend of mine told me that he had a lot of female friends and some would request that he be the designated boyfriend to protect them from guys trying to pick them up. I thought, that is such a great idea, so very chivalrous of him, and certainly is very useful when one is in need of someone to save you from awkward or creepy moments. Read more

How to Scare off Your Potential Date

In honor Vday next month, here’s another post on relationships. There are some really unbelievable (and sometimes scary) things that I come across when people try to “get to know” me or other people they seem interested in. From individuals that start asking not so appropriate questions, or individuals that sounded like they just got out of jail. I don’t know if they are fully aware of what they are doing, but I advice to do a self check with this list to see if you do any of this.
