What Happened to Dinner and a Movie?

Seriously, what happened to dinner and a movie? That was the question I asked my best friend the other day.It seems like every guy I meet lately is only interested in one thing — sex. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not naive. I know that 99.9 percent of the time, sex is the only thing on the minds of men, but, come on, give a girl a little bit of credit....more

When An Online Dating Site Matches You With Your Ex

When it comes to love, and relationships, I know I tend to give people too many chances. Many times, those chances are built on the basis that maybe there is a reason I am meeting this person, or maybe the circumstances previously, just weren’t correct.In the case of Frat Guy, who I dated in college, and gave way too many chances to then, I do sometimes think about him, and that if we met at a different time in our lives, we would have been really good together....more

Not the Picture-Perfect Family: My Love-Hate Relationship with Disney World

It was a good 10 years since I had been to Disney World when my friend and her husband convinced me I should take a trip there with them. I had been laid off a month before, and spending money on a vacation six months away seemed like the stupidest thing. ...more

If He’s Dumb Enough to Walk Away, Be Smart Enough to Let Him Go

I saw this photo of a quote on Facebook this morning, “If he’s dumb enough to walk away, be smart enough to let him go.” I shared it without adding any extra comments. Will Bartender Boy see it? Maybe, maybe not....more

I Want You to Want Me

So, after the Vegas incident, I pretty much wrote Jon off. The ex-girlfriend he was with, while much older than me, was much prettier than me.It is what it is. I am ok with that.On Monday I have to go to an event where I had a pretty good feeling his company would be at. Sure enough, when I got the list of exhibitors yesterday morning, the company was on there, which meant I was pretty sure he was going to be there.My co-worker and I joked about it, and just laughed....more

“Who Doesn’t Use a Condom?”

I don’t even know where to begin.I saw Jon yesterday, and everything was going well. Until, I ended up in his hotel room.First, I couldn’t go in his car because he was worried someone might see us — despite us doing shots and hanging out at the bar right before that. But, it is a valid point. Neither of us need that reputation. But, once I got to his room, everything went downhill from there....more

When the Bully Just Might Be Correct

When I was in school, there wasn’t much talk about bullying like there is today. But, when I look back I was definitely a victim of bullying.How do I know this? It’s haunted me my whole life. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about at least one of the comments that was said about me when I was younger. It’s likely the most vivid memory in my mind. And, many times, I think he was correct....more

“I’m a Loser, Baby …”

It’s just natural for people to wonder what other people think of them. Even all those people who say, “I don’t care what other people think.”Yes, yes you do.Even if you don’t realize it, subconsciously, you do. And, while I’ve gotten better about trying not to take what other people think of me to heart, I still always wonder.My view, when it comes to dating, is that people think I’m a workaholic, unattractive single girl who is married to her job and will never find a boyfriend. And, if I do, he will be hideous....more

“I’m just not a pretty girl"

It’s going to be three weeks that I’ve been on Match.com and two weeks on OKCupid.And, I hate it.As I think I said before, my fear in joining any of these online dating sites was that no one would wink, email, like or do whatever it is they do to tell you that they are interested, only really unattractive people would contact me and that I would never go on one date. I was scared that in the end, I would feel worse about myself because of this....more
