Tinx is turning back time. The TikTok superstar Christina Najjar, better known to her fans as just ‘Tinx’ is on a mission to make the single life, the sweet life–where introspection, self development and fun are on the menu. With the launch of her first book, The Shift, Tinx drops the mini-mic and shares her greatest tips and anecdotes around relationships, love and the secrets to getting what you really want (hint: it’s simpler than you think.) PureWow recently sat down with Tinx to ask the five laws of dating she wishes she could tell her 22-year-old self (she’s 32 now, in case you were wondering) and let’s just say she spilled the tea…and then some.
1. INSTEAD OF “DO THEY LIKE ME?” ASK, “DO I LIKE THEM?”
“I wish someone had told me when I was 22, ‘Tinx, he doesn’t like you. BUT, you don’t like him, either. I was obsessed with validation in my 20s.” Tinx confesses. “I didn’t care who he was, I just wanted a boyfriend so badly. When in reality, I could have spent that time working on myself, or spending time with my amazing friends, or probably trying harder at work, to be honest” Tinx says, with a laugh. “You don’t need to wait for a relationship to be happy.” That’s the unlock, and that’s the first question you should ask yourself after a date, regardless of age.
