For those who didn’t see my story, I, as well as hundreds of other men, got catfished by this girl via tinder. Her and her team of troublemakers texted identical messages to each of us instructing that we meet her at union square park 6pm Sunday August 19 2018. When I arrived, I noticed, as well as hundreds of other men,that my date, Natasha Aponte, @natashavaponte was on stage mc’ing this social experiment called the “Tinder Trap” ran by Rob Bliss, @robblissgr.
This experiment insisted that we, men, compete against each other and whoever won was granted a 30 minute date with Natasha. The crazy part is some of the guys actually participated in this competition, doing jumping jacks, push-ups, racing etc, which I found completely absurd due to the fact that we were all manipulated bro.
When I found out I wasted my time and my money to be nothing but a statistic in a unethical social shitshow, I was left merely appalled, not at the fact that I got catfished but at the fact that Natasha with the co-sign or @robblissgr had the audacity to exploit hundreds of men for the purpose of a “social experiment”, one that radically goes against the moral grounds of any fundamentally sound individual.
My initial reaction was to walk away and go back home which I started to do, but I felt I had to say something. So I walked back to this debacle, hopped on stage, grabbed the mic from Natasha, on some Ye shit and told her what she was doing was simply wrong and unethical, and that she was a bitch. All the other catfished men seconded my sentiment. But I barely got a couple sentences out before security grabbed me and told me to leave. Since it was a public event they couldn’t kick me off the premises, so I decided to stay and witness the conclusion of this atrocity.
Once it finished I decided to give some more words, which then led to some weak ass punk security putting his hands on me but barely mustering the strength to take me down. Like what was the point of all of that bro, you weak, homeboi. Got me feeling real macho, even tho I got roughed up. But freedom of speech is a right so exercise when necessary, especially when you know something radically unethical is happening.

Еды у меня не было в Иг😂🤣🤣🤣понедельник , все работают, поэтому я решила устроить утром себе Релакс и сходить во французское кафе . Это очень милое и уютное место, маленькая Франция в Нью Йорке, прям как из детства , такие же столики, такие же картины как у моей Бабушки француженки, все меня окунуло в то детство , захотелось вернуться во Францию, в тот старый Париж в котором я не была уже 5 лет. О эти Вафли, эти круасаны, вкус из детства , когда мы с папой ходили за булочками, прям столько навеяло воспоминаний ....🙈что захотелось позвонить ему, хотя мы не общаемся уже 16 лет. Короче французские корни проснулись во мне. И опять Меня называют Anna, я уже смирилась , я устала объяснять . Anastasia and Anna not same name!! Ну они мне вы 50 оттенков видели? Она же Анна !! Все!!! Просто занавес! Поэтому в Старбаксе ... просто Anna!! При чем даже линейка люксовой косметики есть здесь Anastasia Beverly Hils . Короче поймала на мысли, что я влюбляюсь в этот город, конечно любви у нас не возникло как с Токио с первого взгляда и вдоха, но все же...
Opening night is in the books! Had the extreme honor of having @gloriasteinem in our audience! Thank you to @javelinatexmex for hosting an amazing party for us & to everyone who attended! Come see us!

#YardCrew , for all those of you fed up with trying to date in 2018, I present to you a woman named #Natasha who took her love life into her own hands. This past weekend, Natasha duped hundreds of guys she met on #Tinder to meet her at #UnionSquare in #NewYorkCity where they were supposed to “catch a DJ set” for a date.
I’m so encaptured, got me wrapped up in your touch
Feel so enamored, hold me tight within your clutch
How do you do it, you got me losing every breath
What did you give me to make my heart beat out my chest ❤️ #unionsquare#sanfrancisco#california#tb
It's Monday so we are moving onto a new intention for the week at Ritual... And there's something I want to share in closing from last. The intentions we explore at Ritual always open up something in my own reflecting- this is one of the things I love most about my job. Last week we dove into the idea of Pratyahara, withdrawal from the senses. It's a state at which one stay grounded within themselves, amidst all sensory stimulation and whatever chaos may be surrounding them. (1/3) // 📷 @andrew.ho
@kevinlove and @carsondaly were on the @todayshow this morning talking about men’s mental health and panic attacks. A tenet of Chinese medicine is that the body and our emotions are inseparable. When we’re emotionally upset our bodies react leading to the physical symptoms of anxiety and vice versa - when we are physically unwell our emotions are affected. A combination of acupuncture and herbs works to calm the system and decrease anxiety and panic attacks. My favorite acupuncture point for panic attacks is Pericardium 6 which: * opens and relaxes the chest and helps with chest tightness, asthma, angina and heart palpitations.
* relieves insomnia, mania, nervousness, stress and poor memory.
* helps to decrease nausea, seasickness, motion sickness, vomiting and epigastric pain.

#Roommates , for all those of you fed up with trying to date in 2018, I present to you a woman named #Natasha who took her love life into her own hands. This past weekend, Natasha duped hundreds of guys she met on #Tinder to meet her at #UnionSquare in #NewYorkCity where they were supposed to “catch a DJ set” for a date.
Little did these men know, Natasha was about to go all #HungerGames on ‘em to find out who was the best match for her, according to @gothamist. Guarded by security, the woman started eliminating men from the running based on a series of characteristics such as supporting Trump or having a long beard.
Then it got real when she put the remaining suitors into competition, having them do things like-read more at TheShadeRoom.com. 📸: @gettyimages
