About Me

I fell in love with writing as a coping mechanism. In middle school, I didn’t really have friends since I had only been in the country for two years. So writing was my escape from isolation. Over the years it transformed to expressing myself when I didn’t know to say things out loud. Listening to the conversations around me, movies, tv shows, books and my life in general are the inspirations for my poems.

My name is Lisa Banisa and I have been in too many relationships lol.

As you can see, this site was mainly a way for me to share my poetry. However, I decided to turn this into a dating blog. How the idea came about? One night while having drinks with my cousin and sharing stories, I decided to use my personal experiences and others as a gateway to help guide everyone along. No names or exact stories are shared (so don’t worry, your story is safe).
