With Quarantine coming to an end, it's time to step out and meet the potential boo, you've been chatting with on Tinder. Yeah, we know desperate times called for desperate measures. Can you believe I was banned on there a few years ago? Whether it's Bumble, Hinge, or Grinder where you swiped, it's time to step and put to the fire to the flame. You will have something to talk like maybe how happy you are to be able to go out and stay out all night. Or maybe even chat about you trips you have planned, to relax or see your Grandma. Whatever you may discuss you don't want it to get too boring, or repetitive. So we have you covered below are a few ice-breaking questions to ask your potential boo.



1. What are your worst and best traits in a relationship? It's important to know the good and the bad.

2. Do you consider flirting cheating? This is big, now that we are all going to be a lot more social we might go out and shamelessly find ourselves flirting with the bouncer or bartender, you don't want your potential bae finding out and be offended.

3. What were your first impressions of me? Everyone has a perception about you before you get to know each other on a deeper level but it's interesting to know what you thought before and after.

4. What do you want out of life? I think now more than ever as I get older it's important to know what your significant other wants out of life. What worse than being in a relationship with someone who is going the opposite direction on the road, it's pretty pointless.

5. What is a deal-breaker for you in a relationship? It's important to know what your potential bae just can't tolerate, this can save you from swiping right or left again.

Have you ever had some you were so close to, you could practically finish each other's sentences? Your best friend, ride or die, your Patrick to your Spongebob, but you've noticed lately they're more like the opposite. It starts to make sense, why every time you speak to them it's like you left feeling drained or empty. Breaking up with a friend sucks, I know, I went through this during the Panorama of 2020 (yes panorama). We all have been there when it comes to breaking up with a partner, but breaking up with a friend is for the birds, and I'm going to tell you why it's not all bubbles and blossoms.

1.You question every little thing, you feel like a failure. Seeing everyone around you with decade-long friendships that seem amazing, you assume that adult friendships are just easy. It's so easy to get caught up in your mind and blame yourself, but what I've learned is that when you know you put forth the genuine effort nothing else matters. Your truth is your truth and as an adult, you lose some you win some.

2.They know your secrets when this sets in you feel sick to your stomach, you worry if she will blast your secrets all over Twitter, or say that you were a toxic friend and bring up a few of your off days you woke up on the wrong side of the bed. You're now left wondering if the deep dark secrets you told her will be leaked to the national enquirer. Honestly losing that confidant feels jarring.

3.You thought you would be friends forever, this alone is a hard bullet to bite. Unlike the occasional hookup you probably thought that you guys could weather any storm, you held her hair back when she puked all over the toilet on a post-boyfriend breakup and gave her tissues when she cried her eyes out. Maybe even given your friend money to pay her rent so she wouldn't be homeless. You always saw the light at the end of the tunnel, and it was you and your BFF skip, jumping, and hopping off. Well then that hits you to like a ton of bricks, damn forever isn't forever any more.

4. People ask you where is your now ex-friend, you spent all your free time together, or maybe you guys were always chit-chatting. The people you may have introduced her to or people who know of her start to question you on their whereabouts. Then you have to kind of explain what a shit friend they were and in the word of NeNe Leakes why the door is closed.

5. Last but not least, you're cautious of New Friends. Yes you want to put yourself out there again but then you second guess, or maybe you get scared sh"*less. This is a normal feeling hell I have yet to make a new friend, yeah a few associates here and there but you will cringe at deep connections. Now it's like you have to interview every person God sends your way. Yes, the first 20 mins of the convo were cool after she commented on how she loved your hair on the L train but, then that thought runs across your head. Please don't be a narcissistic, overly sensitive, selfish, weirdo.

Regardless you will feel at least one of these if you've dropped a toxic friend in the trash where they belong, but at least you were the best version of yourself. Don't regret the good and bad times, just take it day by day and live your life. As we get older we change our views on a lot of things, and the great saying is some people come into your life for reasons and seasons, so in the words of Tyra Banks Learn Something from This.

With all to come in the next 7 months of 2021 I've decided to just start my blog. With so much that's been holding me back wheather it be fear, procrastination, writers block what ever it may be I'm here now. Im looking forward to letting my inner thoughts out about my life, travels, beauty, health, love, finance etc. So I guess let me introduce myself, Hi my name is Monroe BrooKe I am a 25 year old entrepreneur/esthetician trying to navigate this beautiful world we live on experiencing this thing called life.


I like to describe myself as a optimist, minimalist, who is very social and not so social at the same time. It all depends how much energy I have to give, and how stimulating the actual convo is. Don't judge me but I also like to be in the bed by 9:15 to watch reruns of The Office, read a book of choice and brainstorm on my next move.


Well I hope that sums up a bit about me, at this point my ADHD is telling me to go for a walk so I going to head out and get some Vitamin D on my skin. I hope you love what you read and become a member of The Official Glam co. Peace and Love my Glam Bugs.

xoxo Monroe BrooKe
