Playoff Season

Playoff Season

It’s that time of year – when some playoff or other is occurring. OK isn’t that like always?  So if you are dating a guy, or married to a guy, who is all into his team and their status in the games, what to do?  Is it too much to ask that you get a […]

I Missed NCIS For This????

I Missed NCIS For This????

Every so often I have a date where I am sitting there, trying to make conversation, or just simply so incompatible or a date so not present with me, that all I can think of is “I’m missing my favorite TV show for this!?????” Dang. Can you relate? Have you ever missed your favorite show […]

Romance & The Mysterious Mix Tape

Romance & The Mysterious Mix Tape

When was the last time someone did something really romantic for you?  I was thinking about this as I stumbled across a mix tape I got from a secret admirer in college. But whomever it was – they went to a lot of trouble.  This was before computers and laser printers were common. But this […]

What Defines a Player?

What Defines a Player?

What defines a player? I What defines a player? I’ve been trying to figure this out because sometimes I worry that maybe I am one. Although, I’m guessing if that was the case, I wouldn’t be worried about it? To me a player is someone who toys with other people’s hearts. Who sleeps with multiple […]

Bone Crushing Loneliness

Bone Crushing Loneliness

I sometimes say one of the reasons for a boyfriend is so you have a guy to hang with during national holidays.  In some ways – this is true!  I LOVE my girlfriends, but we don’t exactly cuddle into the night and I love the whole 3 days instead of 2 days to wake up […]

Know Your Target Market

Know Your Target Market

I was at a Sales & Leadership conference.  The previous day a tall, cute guy by the name of Ted introduced himself to me.  Because I was focused on another guy, I didn’t pay a whole lot of attention to him.  And because everyone was wearing a name tag, didn’t think I needed to really […]

Conversation with Mom

Conversation with Mom

I don’t know how many women are lucky enough to have a relationship with their Mom where they discuss sex and lack of it, but I do. At dinner one night I was complaining to my Mom that my dating life was great. …

Musings of a Single Gal

Musings of a Single Gal

Recently I was on the phone with a girlfriend who was lamenting being single. This got me thinking. I don’t begrudge my current single status. Do I want to be happily married with children? Yes, I do. But am I sitting awake at night worrying about this? Not at all.

As Patty on The Millionaire Matchmaker recently said – “You are 1 date away from a boyfriend.”

Since my last long term relationship I have been: to Greece (on my own); to Hawaii (with my Mom); to Vegas (with the girls); and had numerous overnight/ weekend trips to San Diego and Palm Springs (on my own). I’ve had 4 marriage proposals: one insulting, two sweet, and one Oh My God I Had No idea. I’ve had my heart re-broken by my ex. Broken again by my most recent lover. Been asked by countless men to be their girlfriend. And oh yes, had at least 50 first dates – some hilarious, some excruciatingly painful, and some nice, warm and fuzzy.

Who Ever Came Up With “Going Slow” Should Be Shot

Who Ever Came Up With “Going Slow” Should Be Shot

Ok maybe not “shot” but who came up with this crazy dating advice? Of course I say this one month into “going slow.” And I am going a bit insane. I admit this problem is compounded by the fact that my normal fall-back release mechanisms are not currently being activated. My boy toy is on tour and I’ve been mentally distancing myself from my ex, so that makes that route not as satisfying or available as it once was…

I know that I could take control of the situation and just take the lead here. But I have decided that maybe doing what I have always done, didn’t get me the exact results I want – so I’m trying something new – and waiting. But it’s killing me!

And it’s kind of odd. Normally anyone I’m dating I’ve seen naked by at least date 3. But have had 5 dates and a sleep over, and still no nakedness. Crazy.

He’s How Old? :-)

He’s How Old? :-)

One night I decided I am NOT going to call my boy toy, I am going to instead take myself out to dinner and relax. Well, this plan went really well until my waiter turned out to be very cute and extremely attentive. However, he kept hovering at my table and not actually saying anything. So when the bill came, I left a larger than appropriate tip and then wrote my name and number on the back of the slip.
