Two Types of Men (Part 2)

Two Types of Men (Part 2)

As promised, here’s my second post on how I felt when I first began dating in my 30’s and it appeared there were only two types of men.

At times it seems like there are really only two types of guys – Commitment Phobic and Severely Commitment Phobic. The Commitment Phobic seem to sense the second you begin to show any real interest and turn tail and run the other way. The Severely Commitment Phobic don’t even get you all that interested because they are never close enough to touch.

Getting Over A Break Up: He Really Isn’t The Only One

Getting Over A Break Up: He Really Isn’t The Only One

I know sometimes we don’t want to hear it – but when you break up with someone, it’s hard sometimes to remember, or even truly believe that he’s not the only one. That the mere fact that the two of you aren’t together, actually proves he isn’t the guy for you…..

In the romance novels, they always have amazing lovemaking, and they always climax during sex, at the exact same time. So in the books, this is always one of the signs that the guy is “the one.” But great sex doesn’t mean he’s IT or the only one for you.

Dating Around Valentine’s Day: To Give or Not To Give, That Is The Question

Dating Around Valentine’s Day: To Give or Not To Give, That Is The Question

When I was single I dreaded Valentine’s day. I had the give or not give dilemma so often, some years I just categorically refused to date anyone the weekend of/ around Valentine’s day. First off, even during an official relationship I sometimes have had trouble figuring out what to get a guy. Because I don’t want to give just to give – I want to find something I think he will like or enjoy when I give. So when I had only just begun dating someone I always found this time of year even more difficult.

Out Of The Fire: How One Of The Worst Weeks Of My Life, Turned Out To Be One Of The Best

Out Of The Fire: How One Of The Worst Weeks Of My Life, Turned Out To Be One Of The Best

I was having one of the worst weeks in a couple of years. I was in the middle of a forced remodel due to a slab leak. My contractor was ripping up my floors and walls and due to the mold and dust and trying to live in a construction zone, I had become so ill I needed to see a specialist. Basically because my house was making me sick I was temporarily homeless and stressed out about my health. On top of that my job was up in the air. It was out of this hideous week that some of my best growth and change in years occurred.

Hiding In The Back Of The Coffee Shop

Hiding In The Back Of The Coffee Shop

So I’m in the coffee shop, ordering my mocha when out of the corner of my eye I see a guy I know, who works there, and had asked me out a few weeks earlier. I totally forgot a) that he works there and b) that I had pretended to misunderstand that he was asking me out and had said “Sure. I’ll stop by and say Hi next time I’m in.”

Hanging Onto The Idea Of A Man

Hanging Onto The Idea Of A Man

I was recently talking to a girlfriend about a guy I had been dating off and on for the past year. I told her that recently I had begun to feel like he was just too wrapped up in himself to really see or care what was going on with me. She said something interesting – she said “I think you were more into the Idea of Him anyway.” In some ways, maybe she was right.

The Other Woman

The Other Woman

The “other woman” We all hate her – That Bitch! Does she not know what we have? Why doesn’t she find her own man? Why did she have to stalk mine? This is commonly what we think/ say if we learn ourselves or our girlfriend’s relationship has a 3rd party involved.

But what happens when you discover that YOU have been the other woman and didn’t know it?
