6. TBT! Hindi Sexting Is Back! Over two years ago I did one of my Fun With Search Terms posts noting that “Hindi sexting” was an unusual topic that had brought a few people to my blog. Since then I get 50 or more views everyday from search terms including the phrase Hindi sexting

2. Real Sexting Conversations to Read in Hindi? Whether intentional or not, my blog remains the world’s leading site for Hindi speaking online dating advice.  Maybe because I occasionally do things like this: रीयल Sexting बातचीत हिंदी में पढ़ने के लिए


1. Three Things… For the longest time it puzzled me as to why this post from March 2015 was leading the stats for most read. Then it occurred to me that it has two things in it that are both far more popular outside of my world than I could imagine: Zayn Malik & One Direction and a hilarious poem in the comments by Marissa Bergen about Hindi sexting.

I hope you enjoyed reading me as much as I enjoyed writing for you in 2016. Have a great Tuesday! ~Phil
