About Raquel

The blog

My blog is all about romantic relationships. Each blog post touches on a specific aspect, or a common type of person we’ve all known or heard about when it comes to dating. I offer a safe space for females to gain greater insight on how to approach certain guys they’re romantically seeing, but most importantly a place to feel like they’re not alone. Raw Romance will give the inside to the mind of an average female in a romantic relationship, how and why we feel this way and what to do about it! Rather you need advice, or don’t want to feel alone, welcome to the blog and I hope you stick around!


My names Raquel Maciel. I’m currently in my third year at the University of Toronto, where I am majoring in English and minoring in Professional Writing & Communications. I have a passion for writing, and gaining peoples perspectives on life, and trying to decipher peoples thought processes and their actions. I enjoy reading, writing, dancing, and lots of socializing.

My drive to create a blog that discusses romantic relationships is because I see so many people in dysfunctional relationships, or friends and family coming to me for advice and I love engaging with the topic. As someone in a happy and healthy relationship, I think it’s fair to say I can successfully offer my outlook on the topics I discuss in my blog, with the use of outside sources.
