The idea for the little child-ghost with the New Yawk accent was conceived in the 30’s and slowly evolved along the decades from books to comics to a cartoon show in the early 60’s. It was about a delightful ghost. A friendly ghost who wasn’t like the others. He actually wanted to make friends with people—not scare them. He wanted to help others—not hurt them. I loved the Casper cartoons, and you probably did too.

Flash forward to a term we never had to familiarize ourselves with back then—not even on Halloween when we cut three holes into our mother’s old sheets and morphed into little with trick-or-treat bags. The term “ghosting” doesn’t mean any of that today. Instead it refers to a growing phenomenon in a world that is growing increasingly less courteous.

“Ghosting” someone today, means you have an interaction with someone…

The Need for Relationships?

In this modern day society, being single is not a permanent state, but something to be seen as temporary, with an end goal of becoming a part of a relationship. A boy and a girl enter a coffee shop and the automatic assumption of their relation to one another is as boyfriend and girlfriend. In contrast, two “straight” appearing pairs of men and women enter this same coffee shop, and they’re just friends meeting for a drink. Our perception on the world and the society that we live in automatically pairs men and women together as a couple, living up to the expectations that two people must be together. How could both possibly be single and only be friends? It is almost laughable. But what does society seemingly hold against the idea of being single – the term itself being a social construct to differentiate between a romantic and platonic…

The Love List

Has social media led to the downfall of romantic gestures? Instead of sending flowers we send DM’s and instead of writing someone a heartfelt note, we comment fire emojis under the selfie we like the look of … doesn’t scream romance to me!

Where can we expect our meet cute to happen if we’re all so scared of approaching people in real life?

Meet Cute: a scene in which the two people who will form a future romantic couple meet for the first time.

‘Playing’ Tinder is our latest boredom buster. One of the many dating apps we forget about until we realise we haven’t had any easily accessible attention for a while. We post half naked pictures onto our Instagram feeds because we revel in the fleeting appreciation we get from random strangers. Most of us leave our profiles on public because we enjoy being seen by others. But…

CLASHING THOUGHTS..

clash, conscience, love

poised avian

People always experience conflict between their various thoughts on the idea of love. Many of us remain in dilemma for several years before coming to a stable conclusion. It is not only mind that performs, but their is something more that takes part in decision making, and that’s Conscience. Let me reflect on it how:

Is it love or just an infatuation?

Is it real or just my imagination?

Will you be my future or my history?

Will you confide in me or remain a mystery?

Is it right or not in conformity?

Is it material or has its transcendentality?

Will you be dominant or submissive?

Will you be supportive or play the contradictive?

No matter where it leads..

but there is one thing that my conscience pleads;-

”It is hard to find a man who is True,

So, don’t go changing old for the new”.

Alxndra's Mind

When thinking about relationships, you sometimes wonder how people last for over ten years together. You hear of people who have been married for over fifty years.

In our world, most people are in toxic relationships, I mean you hear so many stories, and even read about a lot of things online. Divorce seems common, and we always say love doesn’t really exist. Most of us watched our parents crumble in the name of love and relationships.

The truth is, it’s hard. Commitment is not easy, because you are sharing yourself and your life with another person. You know how, you fight with your siblings? That’s how you fight with your spouse, because you’re not one person, but two people trying to live as one. There are days you wonder what type of human they are. There are days when love doesn’t feel like it’s there, but you remind yourself…

Diary of a Failed Marriage

In the middle of our marriage crisis, I wrote here how Barely Husband accused me of treating him like a friend with benefits. I couldn’t deny it. A girl has needs too, you know…

It may not have been the wisest on my part and as we drifted more and more, I still wanted sex, but it became clear it wasn’t with him. Or any living being for that matter (at that point in time). There was never anyone else involved in our break-up and I still haven’t been with anyone – it fucking sucks!

We have been friendly, getting on much better than when we were together, and he came out with this gem: he wanted us to ‘go out as friends’. Erm… I was shocked speechless as he talked about it.

In a way, it made sense: we have fun and we laugh a lot; we have been…
