How NOT To Kiss: 11 Tips From A Serial Kisser

How to kiss? The eternal question of teen angst muffled into a plagued pillow of frustration. But that’s a stereotype; a lot of adults can’t kiss for shit either (trust me, I know). Watching porn won’t solve the question; you need to get out there and feel your way through it. But help is at…

Dating In Taipei: Mr Zero-To-One Hundred

Before this, I had never dated a Taiwanese guy. Or a Chinese guy, or a Japanese guy. So I was a little nervous before going on a date with Mr Zero-To-One Hundred. Not because I’m racist… it just never happened. Being new to Taiwan and Taiwanese culture with a vocabulary is pathetically limited to ‘she she’…

10 Best Date Spots In Taipei

Got a tinder date in Taipei, Taiwan? Or anything romantic for that matter… OK, so it didn’t take me long to figure out that Taipei isn’t the most typically ‘romantic’ city; think quirky, fast-paced and yeah, concrete, rather than violins playing in the background.

Dating Archives: #Kasanova, My First Tinder Date

He had 2 tinder pictures and his bio said that he was ‘an Arty Music Gigolo’. Still, something possessed me to swipe right. I was 22, a complete newbie to Tinder and to dating in general and after two days of swiping, he seemed kind of mysterious. My dating life pre-tinder had been pathetic and…

Dating In Penang: #The Pirate Box of Chocolates

I didn’t know what to expect of The Pirate Box of Chocolates before I met him. He seemed clever, to-the-point and fun. On the other hand, he switched a bit to text talk when we got on Whatsapp (Yeah, sometimes I judge people too soon on that). Either his spelling was crap or he had really…

Demystifying The Myth Of ‘The One’

Believing in ‘The One’ is the No.1 bullshit myth in dire need of being busted. Let’s start with my favourite examples of how self-images can be fucked in childhood while being sugar-coated and tied with a pretty pink ribbon; the Classic Disney Princesses. *The tone of this article is geared towards women, because as a…

Dating In Penang: #The Ultimate Hipster Nomad

Dating in Penang adventure no.3 was oddly inspiring and a teeny bit weird. The Ultimate Hipster Nomad looked like that Australian guy that looks French in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ a little in his pictures – Simon Baker. However, he kept ending texts with an X which I’m wary of, because I don’t like people being too…
