New Yorker Seeking New Yorker
It’s Sunday morning and I just got home. Not from where most people go on Sunday mornings in a sundress, but from where a chosen few of us city dwellers go on Saturday nights in sequin skirts and high heels. And let me tell you, if you know the pain heels cause, I’m sure you can imagine the pain of having to put them back on in the morning, as well as the pain of receiving those glares. Generally, I prefer to not be the one doing this, but I have learned over my five, well-experienced years in New York City, that a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.
I don’t consider myself as someone that routinely dates, and there’s no comparison to a few of my girlfriends that go on numerous dates a week searching for the one. I work one full-time job in the fashion industry during the week and a part-time job on the weekends for fun. I do this all while keeping up with my blog, Let’s Talk Twenties, and having some sort of social life. Dating? It usually isn’t the most important thing for many New Yorkers; we’re all too busy chasing that dream.
New Yorker. I don’t like to brag, but I was told by a good friend that if you can make it in the city for at least five years, you’re a New Yorker. This friend, who I met four years ago at my tender age of 20, has given me great advice thus far in my Big Apple life. He is in his late twenties, knows people everywhere he goes, and most importantly, is a New Yorker, times two. Talk about a long time living in the city.
We’ve had a few meetings, if you will, here and there. Hook-ups, make-outs, drinks, chats, late-night run-ins. All in all, after four years, we remain the same kind of friends that we always have been. I’m not sure exactly what you’d call that, but who says you have to define every relationship….
