Fellas -- and ladies -- online dating is a fucking nightmare.  But we're all doing it so let's try to make the process as easy as possible.  I didn't ever think I would need to go into a diatribe of the 'do's and don'ts' of online dating but apparently I do! It's not hard to remember [...]

REASONS YOU’RE NOT GETTING ANYWHERE ONLINE

Alright, fellas.  Here's another one for you.  I'm going to give you the 411 on how to have a successful interaction with a lady online.  So you swiped right (or starred, or liked or matched on whatever app/site you use)  and the initial 'hello' pleasantries have been initiated...Clearly there was some attraction so I'm gonna [...]

THIS ONE IS FOR THE FELLAS — IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A SELF-MADE, INDEPENDENT WOMAN, DO NOT DO THIS

Ok.  I have to say something.  I'm sure it's been said ad nauseum but I have to emphasize the point -- Guys, if you are SERIOUS about online dating, let me give you a few pointers. It is NOT cool to have your profile pic as any of the following: bare torso/no head (i don't [...]

NO ONE WANTS TO SEE YOUR BIG GIRL PANTIES

Woke up with a little less of a heartache, and a little more perspective.  It's funny how "love", "infatuation", "twitterpation", etc makes us literally stupid. As in we actually believe that the person(s) who hurt us have the capability of making us feel unwanted/unloved/heartbroken/etc.  No.  Trust me.  The person(s) who hurt us do not have [...]

I'm back to the land of reality.  Jesus, it's hard as fuck to be surrounded by all that makes me anxious and sad and nostalgic.

EVEN STRONG WOMEN ARE FORCED INTO A BREAK ONCE IN A WHILE

Without having to go into a long back story, let's just say that my life these days has SIGNIFICANTLY slowed to a simmer rather than it's former rolling boil status.  I have so much more time on my hands that I have absolutely no fucking clue what to do with -- For the past five [...]

THE COMPROMISE JUXTAPOSITION

In this seemingly never-ending-unsuccessful world that is my dating life, I often have to put myself in check when I start to "like" a dude...I have to examine if he is REALLY worth a repeat date or am I just in a "lonely" phase of my life looking to fill a void (insert sexual innuendos [...]

DEFINING THE STRONG WOMAN GAME

Yea, I know.  It looks like this is going to be a blog by some crazy-ass divorcee spouting off all her anger and sadness over every failed relationship she's ever had...Couldn't be further from the truth.
