No Sex and the City in New York

See also

After running across a very interesting blog not long ago called No Sex and the City. The title intrigued me and I began to wonder if dating in 2013 is any different than it was 10 years ago or in the 90s. Over the years we have had great shows such as Girls, Sex and The City, How I Met Your Mother, Spin City, Friends, Living Single, Seinfeld and a few other cool shows which covered dating in NYC and each were different in their own way. The jokes were always funny, and the audience fell in love with the characters, but did we really learn anything we didn't already know?

The reason the blog fascinated me because it was honest and thoughtful at the same time. This was indeed a very different way to talk about dating experiences currently. Genesis Tolentino is the owner of the No Sex and the City blog. This blog is interesting and funny, but it is also about a young woman's dating experiences in New York. From the title, you may think the blog is about how hard it it to find a suitable partner in this Metropolis called New York City, but it isn't. Well it is and it isn't.

The No Sex and the City blog is about one young woman's experience living, working and dating and in the Big Apple, however there is one thing she has to deal with that may be a little difference that most. The difference is that that she is a virgin, and although it was a decision she made that was very personal, the stories of her dating life is sometimes funny and frustrating.

She is the first to admit that she never created this blog to condemn others for their choices or to appear superior. The blog is written really just to share with others in her own voice. The blog is chock full of funny little nuggets along with a little heartbreak, but instead of getting down about it, Genesis decided to create something interesting for others to enjoy.

In her own words, "Hey all! First of all, I will quickly tell you about myself and this blog. I started this blog a couple years ago when I realized just how difficult it was to date in New York City. Even more difficult being a virgin. Yes,I said VIRGIN."

Although it appears that she is still figuring life out, she has a clear vision of where she wants to go. Check out her blog at nosexandthecity.com.
