You can’t handle the truth.

I was told by one of my bff's this weekend that I need to write again...so, here I am, making time that I don't have to, once again, bitch about the singlehood status.  I feel like I'm on fucking repeat so I'm gonna shake this up a bit and get real about what it's REALLY [...]

A moment of silence.

New job?  Check.  Back in the dating world?  Check.  Feel like I doused myself in gasoline and ran through a field of dried brush?  Check.  Metaphor getting lost in my sleep-deprivation?  Fuck. Yes. You know what though?  I like it.  And life has just taken a turn for the incredible.   I woke up at [...]

Sometimes indecision IS a decision.

I alluded to some 'heart-wrenching' (maybe over exaggerated with that term but whatevs) dating situations in my last post and thought, hell...if I'm opening up a flesh wound, may as well dig all the way to the artery and bleed out. There is a pretty profound lesson found in each of the scenarios so, maybe, [...]

HOW A STRONG WOMAN SEES A RELATIONSHIP — TYPICALLY FROM AFAR….

Any woman who is strong, independent and speaks her mind (normally) has it rough in this dating game...Crazy bitches have given "women" a bad rep -- chicks who go all psycho because they can't keep their neediness under wraps are adding to reasons why we 'normal' gals have to over analyze and keep in check [...]

I MAY BE SARCASTIC AF, BUT SOMETIMES I GET THE FEELS

Ah, the time of year where the culmination of all the experiences gathered in 2016 start to play over in my head...I wish I could say I'm an eternal optimist.  I mean, those people have their shit together and seem to have good things happen to them all the time...maybe I'll try it on for [...]

WHY I DON’T BELIEVE IN SECOND CHANCES…STRIPES, TIGERS AND SHIT.

 Ah, it's been a minute...I've missed it here.  Just life has been so fucking busy that any moment I have to myself is spent on a bottle of wine and a hot bath...Let's just say, life took an interesting (and awesome) turn four weeks ago and I'm back to being in a good place.  Any [...]

WHEN YOU SUDDENLY REALIZE YOU’RE THAT DIVORCEE WHO IS SOUGHT OUT FOR RELATIONSHIP ADVICE…

I consider myself to be a fairly level-headed person.  I know I'm not without moments of craziness...hell...I'm not only human, I AM a woman.  Additionally, I'm one of the (what I'm guessing to be) millions of women/humans who have been divorced...I've had a couple of long-term relationships, followed by a 10-year relationship/marriage, followed by a [...]

YOU ASKED, SO HERE GOES…(BONUS CLE ON DATING WOMEN LIKE ME…AKA, STRONG AF)

Ok, ok, ok....I can't tell you how many requests I've received for a "dating" post lately.  100% disclosure -- it's cuz I've not necessarily been on any dates for quite some time.  But, there were a couple.  Since going at dating the "old fashioned" way (i.e. offline), I've eliminated about 88% of the fuck-tards that [...]

COMING DOWN OFF THE HIGH…I NOW UNDERSTAND DRUG ADDICTION

It's not gradual...I don't care what people say...It's like you're standing outside yourself on the tracks watching a freight train slam into your body and still feeling each rail wheel thump over your corpse...This is exactly what it feels like for a traveler, after being so elated during travels, to return to "real life." Well...maybe [...]

WHY I TRAVEL…FUCK THOSE KARDASHIANS

First off, I travel on a budget.  If I wanted to drop a couple grand on a fancy/schmancy all-inclusive then I better have already been to and explored that country.  When you're stuck in a resort you're really not experiencing culture...you're just being a fucking American, in a posh setting, pretending to be something/someone you're [...]
