Deepen your relationship in 10 ways

My rare specimen (my boyfriend) and I had a wonderful extended fourth of July weekend in Desert Hot Springs this past weekend. I came back SO relaxed and filled with so much love. Before I went, I was in a bit of a funk and wasn’t much fun to be around but the trip helped put everything in perspective and reaffirmed the relationship we have…

The difference between Boyfriend vs Partner

As I’ve gotten older, the way I use and define the word “boyfriend” has changed considerably. When I was younger and more indecisive, it insinuated someone I “hung out with” and liked for the time being. Nowadays it’s gotten even more intense. For me, a boyfriend is a partner. If you’re going to spend that much time, energy and money on another person why would…

How to find your Soulmate

In just the last few years I’ve had the honor of meeting some incredible rare specimen type of people that I can consider to be soulmate material (professionally, personally and romantically). I did a blogpost on this before (here), but I wanted to do a video since the idea of soulmates has been popping up time and time again especially recently. I might sound crazy…

We insertVerbhere together relationships

I mentioned this to Rowena awhile ago when I slept over at her place and we hung out, but I’m reminded of what I said time and time again as I meet more and more people here in LA. I have this theory that the more verbs you can do with other people in your life, the more fulfilling, full, inspiring, joyful and deep the…

How to tell that you like someone

I love humans. I love talking to people, hearing their stories, asking hard questions, learning from them…. but it takes a special kind of person for me to admit that I really like them. So what does it look like/feel when I like someone? In business and life? Platonic or romantic? Most of the below, if not all: I’m happy with myself… but sharing that happiness…

My “dating app” blogpost comes to life in a video!

As overwhelming as the internet can be sometimes, it can be equally awesome. Do you remember my “Why I’ll never be on a dating app again blogpost? Thanks to the internet, I had the awesome opportunity of getting connected to Kore Asian Media who brought this post to life in the form of a short film starring the talented Angie Kim and Topher Park. Charles found…

What makes a Rare Specimen

If you’ve been following/reading my blog for the past year, you know that there was a person in my life that I referred to as my Rare Specimen. He was my boyfriend, best friend and so much more. To this day, we’re still on good terms and he has changed my life for the better (a blogpost here on being broken up but not broken)….

What I need in a relationship

I’ve spent a loooot of time thinking about what matters most to me since I’ve moved from New York to Los Angeles. Of course, I did most of this thinking even before I moved, but it’s really now that I’ve been able to “start again” (especially after college) and build a new and stronger foundation. It’s what I expected and counted on to happen with the…

How to heal from a break-up

I started off this week feeling like I had a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. I went into work feeling positive and excited to dive in, rather than dreading it. It’s been over a month since my break-up and today was the first time I felt emotionally free of the heavy heart that comes with a separation. Now that I’m clear from the mind-funk I was in for…

My heart space is “for rent”

In our daily life, we maintain different kinds of space. Calendar space, head (mental) space, physical space and even computer space…. but perhaps the most overlooked kind of space is heart space. Kind of ironic, seeing as how heart space is the one that affects us so personally and our motivation (therefore efficiency) the most. Heart space also happens to be the kind of space…
