FINDING THE FUNNY IN ALL THE FUCKS I DON’T GIVE

I want a 2016 re-start.  I have to say, since January, aside from maybe 3 or 4 great moments, there has literally been fuck-all going on in my life that I'm either (a) excited about or (b) hopeful for.  I know, I know...look at all the good stuff I have, blah, blah, blah...I do.  And [...]

ONCE UPON A TIME…NOPE.

Yep, I think I discovered the world's BIGGEST douchebag a week or so ago.  And it was SO bad, that I just have to laugh.  I didn't write about it as soon as it happened because, if you've been reading my blogs, you know I've been going through some emotional BS so I needed to [...]

LIFE LESSONS –CLE SERIES

So as I mentioned in my last post, I'm officially off dating apps.  All of them.  That last go-round was the literal straw that broke the camel's back (well....if I had a camel, I'm sure it would be...I just wanted to throw the word 'literal' in there).  I do want to take a quick sec [...]

SEVERELY DOUBTING HUMANITY

So a couple of weeks ago I had 'virtually' met this guy, Josh (I know I said I wouldn't use real names, but this douche deserves to be put on blast).  He's a teacher at a school in Ft. Bend.  (I've had a day to calm down so I'll refrain from saying exactly WHICH school...) [...]

WHY AM I STILL SURPRISED WHEN GROWN MEN THINK WITH THEIR JUNK?

First of all, I need to make a caveat statement:  When I write about my 'dating' life, it's really not ALL that is going on...dating is NOT my life.  Additionally, I am not sad and lonely.  I'm perfectly fine with my own company and I'm not desperate to find a man.  I just happen to [...]

SHIT’S ABOUT TO GET REAL

Well.  It's my last week of being 36...I know, I know...some of you out there say 36 is still young, etc...HOWEVER, in the realm of all I want to accomplish and do in my life, turning 37 is abso-fucking-lutely scary.  I know I blog a lot about dating, and I make fun of some of [...]

AGE DOESN’T MAKE YOU GROWN FOLK

HOW AN "ADULT" HANDLES REJECTION THE WRONG WAY Scene One:  Houston, TX Source:  Bumble Scenario: Planned meet up for drinks Participants:  Me and "Joe" Results:  Stage 5 Clinger and more than likely bipolar...Or just a regular ol' douchebag...you be the judge So when I'm on these ridiculous dating sites/apps, I like to vet people for witty banter [...]

DO WE REALLY NEED TO GO BACK TO DATING 101?

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 [...]
