Meeting Guys Is Easy If You Can Brave The Football Weather

“My girlfriend is clueless when it comes to sports, but the funny part is she tells everyone she’s a huge sports fan.” I hear some variation of this every time I’m at a sporting event.  This conversation I eavesdropped on last weekend at the Chicago Bears game ended with, “but she’s hot so I don’t...

Not Everyone Has Perfect Game At The Bowling Alley, Maybe That's Okay

When my friends told me we needed to make a quick stop before we headed out for the night, I wasn’t sure what to expect.  They said I should tag along to a work function where they were competing against other companies in a variety of sports.  My first thought was that this would be...

Being Sober On The Dance Floor Meant Better Dating Decisions

Trips to Las Vegas and New Orleans last month solidified my marketing strategy of just being myself. It’s easier to tell a true story, and definitely easier to keep someone interested if they liked you for who you really are.  But are people who vacation in Las Vegas and New Orleans looking for a relationship?...

Giving Your Number To Married Men Is Scandalous Even If They're Just The Messenger

My biggest challenge in dating is weeding through all the people so I can find the single ones.  That’s one of the reasons why I’ve tried online dating.  You have a pool of single people right at your fingertips, but one of the reasons it doesn’t always work is because of how anti-social the process...

Girls With Mustaches Get Attention, But Is That A Good Thing?

The thought of having a mustache is frightening.  I’m grateful everyday that I wake up without one.  I don’t even like to date guys with facial hair. Last weekend I couldn’t stop staring at the girls who had come in wearing fake mustaches.  It caught my attention because it was different, and kinda funny.  To... Read more »

When Everyone Is Wearing Heels in Las Vegas, Put On Flip Flops

Whenever I travel to a new city, it takes a little time to adjust, but no matter how many times I go to Las Vegas, I never feel like I fit in.  Although, I guess I don’t try very hard either.  I don’t buy special outfits just for the trip, wear high heels or put... Read more »

Bottle Service And VIP Lounges Are Full Of Crap

I fully support the idea of going into a bar, ordering a bottle of vodka with some mixers and pouring your own drinks all night.  It saves time and of course money.  It makes it feel like you’re at home with friends.  Not trying to impress anyone.  Just having a good time. When I was... Read more »

If I Didn't Slow Down, I Was Going To Miss A Chance To Meet Someone

I decided to start walking to work.  I missed walking everywhere.  After living in Oklahoma for three years, I adapted to that lifestyle, including gaining 25 pounds!  I still say “y’all” now and then.  But they also drive everywhere.  Every.  Where.  I suppose that’s because there’s plenty of free parking, unlike Chicago.  They didn’t drive...

Six Girls Walk Into A Cigar Bar, The Waitress Sets Us Up

I remember the day when the Chicago bars stopped allowing patrons to smoke inside.  It changed my life.  Not because of the concern for second hand smoke, although that was a huge bonus.  But because I didn’t smell like an ashtray after I left the bar.  I no longer had to have a jacket designated...

Washing My Hands Of Pick Up Lines

After 125 first dates in five years, all of that practice means it’s not hard for me to strike up a conversation with just about anyone.   If it’s not a guy I’m interested in, it’s even easier.  When it is a guy who caught my eye, I know that I need to be patient... Read more »
