My top 10 turn offs in a guy

My top 10 turn offs in a guy

I write this post, not so much because I think any of you care about what I don’t like in guys, but because I’ve been recently challenged to examine what my criteria is for a dateable guy. In that challenge I was encouraged to list things based on scriptural principles and not worldly wisdom or …read more →

Walking the fine line between pursuit and stalking.

I don’t envy that men are responsible for leading relationships…no not one bit. The very few times I’ve tried to take the reigns of my relationships it’s ended very very badly, so I’ll concede, it’s harder than it looks. Also, I’ll say right up front, I’ve done my share of cyber stalking. So I get …read more →

Memorable dating moments

-The one where he took me to see “Passion of the Christ” because he had free tickets. Very moving film, horrible first date choice. -The one where he gave EVERY female who walked by the complete “head to toe and back again” look over. Wrong on so many levels. -The one where he told me …read more →

Buyer's Remorse (and my 200th post!)

Ever have buyer’s remorse? Basically I get it anytime I spend over $20 on pretty much anything. I blame this on my dad and when I say blame I really mean credit it to him (as it is close to Father’s day and all). I have ingrained in me a certain sense of frugality which …read more →

Location, location, location.

Dear Future Husband, Yesterday, here in New England, it got pretty toasty. Along with humidity it was well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. As I sat, “glistening” in my office, I realized that I don’t like hot weather and it doesn’t like me. Really, when I think about it, I never have. Humidity literally makes me sick. …read more →

PDA – revisited

I have some pretty specific thoughts on PDA (public displays of affection), which you can read more about HERE. I guess I’ve just been exposed to a few couples who were, shall we say, a little overboard. This post is the balance and reasoning to my prior criticism.

Dear Future Husband, Not to sound conceded or anything, but you’re in for a treat. It was a smart move on your part to chill out and wait for a while before showing up. You see, as I look back over the years at all the times I thought I was ready to get married …read more →
