Hi there, and welcome to my heart.
My name is Sonya Matejko and I’m a blogger and freelance writer who is vibrantly falling in love with life in New York City (previously Miami) and around the world. My writing has been featured on a variety of high-profile platforms and blogs. My most popular article has been shared over half a million times on Facebook alone. You’ll find me writing about the dating world as well as traveling the world.
I founded this blog as a home for hopeless romantics and wanderlusts, because I believe passionately in love even if I haven’t quite gotten it right just yet. I steal lunch breaks and midnights to do this on the side of my full-time advertising career with the simple yet powerful goal of inspiring others to believe in love and to believe in themselves.
This site is a space to share my stories in the hopes of encouraging just one heart afraid of moving on, rousing just one dream afraid to wake up, or motivating just one life to live with more love.
Often I’m asked, “what will happen to your blog if you’re not single anymore?” Well, this blog isn’t only about being “single.” To clarify, Single Strides is meant to be about moving forward. It’s about following your dreams as well as following your heart.
This is a place you’re welcome to discover yourself in no matter what point of your life you’re in. Here you learn how to go towards your destiny while learning to be okay with taking a few steps back occasionally. This is somewhere safe, so please feel free to call it a home.
This is where you’ll be inspired to travel the world and be pushed to travel through your own soul.
So go ahead and take a chance on the girl who has nothing figured out, but maybe sometimes seems like she does. I can’t promise you the world, but I can certainly promise you a good read and inspiration to feed your innately wandering soul. Let’s adventure together.
C’mon, add a little love into your life. Stride on with me, and see where it all began.
