“Are we talking rough as in I do okay here and there or rough as in Top Ramen every night for dinner? His response was “Top Ramen for breakfast, lunch and dinner”. This was the warning sign Broke Boo was giving me, a true depiction of how his current financial status wasn’t the best.… Read More Should You Date When You’re Broke- Part II
Dating is something that consumes both time and energy and for the life of me, I will never understand how the cheaters and players are able to carry on without burning out. While having two dates back to back in the same weekend may seem appealing (yeah, I’m hot stuff) and in the right direction… Read More Should You Date When You’re Broke? Part I
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. How about a little background on the latest candidate, Tiny Tim. The irony of the name is befitting when thinking of this tall, dark and chocolate hangover. He’s another big one, standing at a staggering 6’5 and is solid muscle, a gentle giant of sorts. His… Read More Wheels on The Bus
As of last week, my address book was minus one again – Jersey Boy struck out. I find the title of this post fitting since he was an avid softball player; that should have been a clue. Actually, he was out before he was even in because I could tell within the first couple of… Read More Jersey Boy Strikes Out!
Being forced to be civil with your ex, especially the other half who helped in the creation of your child is tough. For the most part, I have as minimal contact with the father which helps in living a drama free life. As the two of us stood in the cold, watching the kids displaying… Read More Thanks, but no thanks!
“So the man has issues, at least he’s willing to spring for a $500 per night date. Stop looking for perfection and just roll with him”. These are the words heard from a good friend ealier this week who tried to chastize me for complaining that I had a great time with Tall Glass… Read More Who’s Looking For Perfection?

Cost for an after hours locksmith- $84 Feeling okay the day after a break up-PRICELESS. Saturday was quite interesting. As I woke up and started preparing food for a potluck, I wondered about my plan of action. I was so over the “how come you won’t just talk to me” or the “your actions make… Read More A new day
To say that this past week has been rough would be a gross understatement. I haven’t been shedding tears of “my relationship is crappy and pretty much over, but more “this whole wanting to be with someone is crappy”. Actually, I take that back – the crying has pretty much subsided and has been replaced… Read More Phase 3- The “I don’t know how I feel” moment
It has been eight days since Rescue and I had our latest “incident”, seven days since we last saw each other, and six days since I apologized and two hours have passed since he and I had what I hope was the beginning of a break through conversation. Yes, I apologized and the reason why is… Read More Part Deaux
So much has transpired since my update last weekend. Of course, my girls who have seen me know the details of all that went down with me and Rescue and for you others – read it here because I simply don’t have the energy to rehash it. That last line sounds like a state of… Read More He can blame himself in the end- Pt. 1
As I shared with my boss during a mini meltdown, stress reliever and bitch fest (known as my annual review), my career seems to be the only thing out of balance in my life right now. Yes, probably not the best thing to share with your boss but it is what it is. Yes, the… Read More Damn you Full Metal!
And those bitches are like the Santa Ana’s in the dead of summer – hot and swift. It was just a week or so ago that Kim sent me a BBM ladened with her latest dating woes and said- “Damn girl, things are going so well with you and Rescue, we won’t have anything… Read More The winds are changing…
This probably more of a rant than anything, but I just have to say how sick I am of hearing the stories about women who are waiting. Waiting for that man to propose OR for those lucky enough to have heard already heard it, waiting for things to be “right” before a the man finally… Read More If you have to ask why…
So not what I wanted to read today: “…On the face of it, a combination between Capricorn and Libra may not seem the best of matches…” As much as I enjoy reading my horoscope to see how accurate, twisted or completely WRONG the forecast may be, one area I’d never really given much thought to was… Read More Are we compatible?
