Whew. Life is rife with awkwardness and taboo topics. But it's about time we change that. Let's challenge social barriers and prepare to get a little uncomfortable for the sake of becoming blockage free — emotionally, socially, and physically.

Not to be dramatic but if someone suggests a coffee date as a first date I genuinely consider telling them I've moved to a different country. Why?

In our day and age, a lot of people meet through dating apps and services. Especially since it's pretty hard to meet someone in Ottawa, it's a great way to get yourself out there and being able to pick out your type is even better.

On trouve de petites merveilles, sur Internet parfois. Que ce soit de nouvelles personnes à connaitre, de nouveaux bands à découvrir ou des photographes qui te coupent le souffle, y'en a simplement toujours à découvrir et à adorer!

Par contre, on trouve aussi des trucs un peu moins glorieux. J'vous ai déjà parlé des pires statuts de la page Spotted : STM, mais là on vient de passer à un autre niveau. J'savais pas qu'on pouvait trouver autant de trucs weird sur Kijiji. Personnellement, j'y vais juste si je me cherche un appart' ou un gros achat du genre, mais on dirait que y'a des gens qui y sont vraiment plus familier que moi.
