Want to actually have success online dating? You need to show up… In Person.

I recently went out for drinks with my softball team.  There were many topics for blog fodder but the one that stuck in my mind was online dating.

How do you meet someone after school is over? Know what you want.

Let me tell you. Finding a decent guy after school, either high school or college is NOT easy. Holy shit. If I knew this, I would have been much less of a bitch to the guys that liked me back in the day. That’s another story for another day, though. What are your options? Through... Read more »

What is all the buzz about Bumble: the new feminist dating app that one ups Tinder
As my subscribers, friends and family may know, I hate the dating process.  So whenever there is a new app on the market, that doesn’t cost me money and may make it easier, I give it a try.  Ironically enough, I found out about a new site called Bumble from a guy I was talking... Read more »

Why do people in relationships wish single people Happy Valentine’s day?

Why do people in relationships wish single people Happy Valentine’s day?
It’s a simple critical thinking logic problem thing to me. Valentine’s day is for couples to celebrate their relationship (and hallmark to make some mula). Single People are not in a relationship Valentine’s Day is not for single people. If the above is true, then why do people in relationship’s think that it’s okay to... Read more »

I made a million choices in 2015, but the most important? Putting myself first.

I made a million choices in 2015, but the most important? Putting myself first.
Over the course of the last year, much hasn’t changed.  I’m STILL in grad school.

At the same time a... Read more »

Single? That doesn't mean you can't send a Holiday Post Card.

Single? That doesn't mean you can't send a Holiday Post Card.
It’s that time of year again.  The postcards are flying in as usual.  From happy faces to full on letters bragging about how awesome your family is doing, they are entertaining to say the least.

Over 2 years ago, I wrote a letter to the editor at the Chicago Tribune.  Two guys from my high... Read more »

The best worst date story. Ever.

The best worst date story. Ever.
The best worst date story. Ever. This tale is not for the faint of heart. I don’t claim to be a saint, or one who doesn’t judge. I mean, I’m on Tinder for fuck’s sake. I’m clearly no angel. I have a certain type I usually lean towards: a great smile, eyes that seem to... Read more »

Opening up has always been the hardest thing - Waiting for the guy who makes it easy to be me

There’s this song by Lady Antebellum, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You that has always resonated with me.  I’m still single at 29.  Why?  Well for one, it is hard as hell to meet somebody after you are done with school.  You don’t have a bunch of other single people close in age around day... Read more »

What I learned from Tinder

What I learned from Tinder
I’ve been Tinder positive for about seven months now and I can easily say that I’ve learned more about myself in that short time, than in the last four years. Mind you, not all my growth is just in my nonexistent love life, but it bled out to more important parts of my life as... Read more »
