Why you shouldn’t be afraid of rejections.

In my youth, relationships were highly troublesome to me.

I used to be the nerdy girl in high school who cares about her grades and loves reading and gaming. My group of friends was perfect but small: we were five loyal and inseparable girls. Although I dreamed of becoming the popular girl in school, that never happened.

As a consequence, my love life was a disaster.

Most guys would go for the easy and Barbie-like girls. During that time, I’d always have a massive crush on someone who would never reciprocate it. In fact, they’d barely be aware of my…

How to properly enjoy a wedding

As soon as Joe and I reached the bushes and found a discrete position, I kneeled before him and unzipped his pants. His cock was already rock hard, and I didn’t hesitate: I closed my eyes and swallowed it entirely.

My sister’s wedding was a crazy day, and I experienced a unique mix of feelings.

After so many months of planning, I think I was just as nervous as Jane was. She was marrying her high-school sweetheart, and they were perfect together. Jane and Tim were everything you expect from a relationship: humorous, caring, trusting, and sweet.

Jane was my…

What I learned when I overcame my prejudice.

I had never expected to enjoy dating an older man.

In my mind, young girls who sleep with older men are generally after their money. For me, successful relationships need one crucial ingredient: sexual attraction. If you are not sexually attracted to your partner, you may as well remain friends. And, let’s be honest: no hot young girl dreams of sleeping with an old dude.

My perspective changed when I met Lucas.

It started when I got a new job at a cosmetics company. As I was just at the beginning of my career, I had a low position, but…

And I have no regrets.

The most awkward — but memorable — sex of my life was when my best friend, Linda, was in the room.

It was my senior year in high school and, to celebrate the end of an era, my classmates decided to book a trip together. It was summer, and everyone wanted to go to the beach, so we rented a house for the weekend. We were around 30 people, and we knew that sleeping wasn’t our priority.

Back then, I was dealing with an intense bittersweet feeling. It was the end of a very happy time in my life. High…

Why you should embrace loneliness.

I have always enjoyed being lonely.

Most of my hobbies are pretty individualistic. I enjoy reading, writing, watching Netflix, playing games. Although I love hanging out with my friends, I absolutely love spending a Saturday night at home, with a nice bottle of wine, watching a movie.

It had never occurred to me that people don’t like being lonely.

The first time I realized this was when my best friend, Linda, broke up with her boyfriend. Even though she felt like she made the right decision, she struggled with spending time alone — especially the nights and the weekends.


How it changed my perspective on sex.

Let me start with a confession: I had never considered having phone sex before.

I had a lot of prejudice about it: I thought only weird people from the internet did this type of stuff. After all, if I could have guys in person, why would I ever consider having virtual sex?

Everything changed when my boyfriend, Jonathan, went on a work trip for a few weeks.

It was the beginning of our relationship, and we were still in the honeymoon phase. We couldn’t get our hands off each other, and it was the first time we had to spent…

Why you shouldn’t be afraid of a breakup.

My last heartbreak almost destroyed me.

I’m the type of person who feels everything intensely. It has its upsides: I feel incredibly motivated about my projects, celebrate small achievements, and love with all my heart.

But I also have to deal with some downsides. For me, the worst part is dealing with heartbreaks.

Joe left me on a Friday night. It was a lovely summer night, and the sky was clear, full of bright stars to witness the end of my love story. By the time he parked his car in my garage, I already knew there was something wrong…

How I fucked a stranger in a bathroom

My boob job was life-changing.

Throughout my teenage years, I had constantly struggled with my self-esteem. I was the nerdy type of girl who likes to have good grades and play video games. I didn’t have many friends either, but the ones I had were very loyal and are still in touch with me.

My dream was to become the popular girl, the cheerleader that every guy wants to date. You know, the girl who has tons of friends and looks like a Barbie. I imagined how effortless life would be if only I were that popular girl.

During those…

How I turned a one-night stand into a serious relationship.

I never thought that sleeping with Jonathan on the first night would lead to a serious relationship.

Back then, I was not looking for a relationship. It was my first year at university, and I wanted to enjoy my student life to its fullest. And then Jonathan entered my life.

We met at a house party, through a friend in common. I had heard about him before, and, to be honest, I didn’t have a good opinion about him. But he was good-looking, and I felt adventurous on that night.

Let me be clear: I had never slept with a…

The best way to impress your future boss

It was my first serious job interview after I graduated from university.

After years of studying and dedication, it was finally time to grow up and enter the job market. At that time, I felt excited about the new challenges ahead of me. However, part of me looked back to my student life with regret.

For my entire life, I had always been a good girl. I won the science fair in high school and managed to achieve the best grades in my class. University wasn’t different: my priority was my studies and my career. …
