Mark and I met in college. We were classmates in 3 or 4 subjects. He was one of those typical careless noisy boys always seated at the back, spotting the prettiest girl in the room. And no, it was not me, atleast for his taste. (As he tries to explain to me now, I was […]Read More Unpublished Letters: A Lot Like Love
I just wrote an April Fool’s post and saved it in my drafts instead of posting it. I wasn’t sure if the joke could actually be taken as a joke or be mistaken with the truth since it was inspired by a true story to begin with. Does that make me a coward? Perhaps, or […]Read More What Was I Going To Say?
I never expected to meet my soul mate at Oktoberfest. As an American girl traveling abroad to this epic festival, I went for the free-flowing beer, the crazy party atmosphere and the slight chance for a make-out session with a foreigner. Attending the fair in Munich with a friend, we were one of the first […]Read More Unpublished Letters: Love at Oktoberfest
I was just going through my old emails (owing to the Covid-19 lockdown) and came across some unpublished letters shared from around the globe. It was a part of a project my friends had set up some time back, with the help of Abscratches but it fizzled out eventually.

By now, you guys know I’m an avid jazz listener, but I do have other genres in my mix […]Read More What Is That Song About?
“Me and Mrs. Jones…we got a thing going on”…Bublè croons in my ears as I type away on my phone’s keyboard with my now short nailed stubby looking fingers. I wasn’t ever one to keep long nails but I’ve always liked a good manicure every month or two. Now, however, things are different, I like […]Read More Me and Mrs. Jones
I know I’ve been MIA for a while and I honestly have no valid reason for it except for the fact that it is the sheer lack of motivation – I suppose this is as good a reason as any! Anyhow, I was lying in bed and got to thinking about a bunch of people […]Read More Reasons Why You Won’t Forget Your First Kiss
Living in a country like Pakistan, talking about anything remotely related to love and romance is a taboo. It is looked down upon like that ugly kid in the family no one wants to admit is ugly but knows deep down that (s)he is. Sex is one of the most natural things amongst human beings […]Read More Why Intimacy Matters
Manuel Meurisse / UnsplashYou are, for the most part, content with this human. You go on dates, have decent sex and do all the couple-y crap that you’re supposed to do, but your mind wanders often. It goes to dark places that make you doubt if you really love them. It’s completely normal. We’ve all been… […]Read More 8 Thoughts You Have When You’re Not Truly In Love — Thought Catalog
