Blind Dates, Friends of Friends and Such.

Blind Dates, Friends of Friends and Such.

I have reached the age, having yet to “secure” a husband, that everyone around me assumes I must need help. In the past year I’ve been offered the assistance of a “life coach”, I’ve gone on a blind date or two set up by well intentioned friends, the number of New Years wishes hoping for …read more →

Freedom to mess up

I have had a tendency to call people on things. I used to be worse… or better… er… I used to do it a lot more often. But, as I’ve gotten older I’ve begun to realize that we all do stupid things every now and then (though, admittedly, some of us more than others.) Sometimes …read more →

Memorable Dating Moments – Part 2

Well, it’s been a while since my last memorable dating moments post, and I figured it’s about time for an update. These things seem to get better and better (or maybe worse and worse) with each passing year. Enjoy… and pray for me. ~ The one where he asked me, on our first (and only) …read more →

Thank you for breaking my heart.

Thank you for breaking my heart, again. You see, at first it didn’t hurt, and I thought I had somehow arrived at a level of maturity above all of this silliness.

Ever feel super single?

Have you ever felt super single? It’s kind of the same feeling that I got when I realized that I graduated high school 10 (count ’em), 10 years ago. I know, right! If I hadn’t rocked being home schooled in high school I would totally be hitting up my 10 year reunion right now. Another …read more →

The door opening issue.

Chivalry isn’t dead, but it has become a somewhat touchy subject.  In our ever changing society, navigating the waters of chivalric code can be mirky for both genders. It all comes down to expectations and interpretations. On one side women have been told they need to be independent and shouldn’t expect special treatment and men have …read more →

Interpreting Woman-ese: A guide for confused men

It’s come to my attention that some people find women confusing when they speak. I’ve never had this problem, although, as a woman I am fluent.
