Why I Fell In Love With The City of Brotherly Love

Firstly, I want to share that I am not from Philadelphia, and it seems like everyone who loves it, is. I grew up in Connecticut, and my family had an apartment in NYC up until the pandemic. While New York City will always hold a place in my heart, many visits and weekend trips made me realize how much I love Philly.

The Location

One thing that I absolutely love about Philly is its location. It's not far from New York, Pittsburgh, Boston, and the Jersey Shore! This makes it convenient for business, and perfect for weekend trips!

The Spirit

It seems like everyone from Philly is so proud to be from Philly. If you don't believe me, you should check out the sports games!

The Food

There are amazing restaurants in Philadelphia, and it's home to the famous cheesesteaks!

The History

The city contains so much history. Right at your side is Independence Hall!

The Size

Philly is the perfect size to me. It's a big enough city with a lot to do, but it is not too overwhelming.

The Suburbs

Along with the city, the suburbs are beautiful. I particularly love the Main Line.

For these reasons, Philly seems like the perfect future home.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
