The people who have reached out to me wondering who the mystery man could be, figuring no news is good news. Ah…the kindhearted souls. Wrong. No Mr. Anything outside of… Read More Have I Become THAT Woman?
Do you have any specific skills or abilities that seem quite useless to most people but may end up being helpful in other cases?

No news isn’t necessarily good news when it comes to following up after a date, although I’m not sure what The Bully and I had was actually meant to be a real date.

If you’re single during the holidays you’re either happy and content, you’re either some kind of amazing or seriously in denial. It sucks having to pass on far too many invites to Christmas parties and for those that you do attend solo, having to explain how is it that you are such a great catch… Read More Single During The Holidays? | And That’s Why You’re Single™
Finish last. Sadly, it’s true. I seem to be attracted to every man that is wrong for me and when one comes along who is all things great in so many areas, I can’t force attraction that isn’t there. This must be a curse. I just had a lovely dinner and an entertaining conversation with… Read More Nice Guys Always…

However, the flip side to this joy is that cold weather encourages regression. It’s Saturday night and my original plan was to get out and enjoy some comedy with my girlfriends, but… Read More The Winter Slowdown

I’m on my second cup of coffee and it isn’t even 8am as the recovery from one of the best weekend getaways all year continues – Oh yes, Las Vegas will do that to you every time if you really had a good time. Plenty of drinking to send a jolt and maybe a little shock to the… Read More What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas!

Tonight will be a night of celebration! Out of Sight is ushering in another year on this earth, and I offered to bring it in right beside him. We are in a different place for sure, and as annoyed as I was that I had fallen for yet another man that was in transition, I… Read More The Birthday Boy’s Night Out
“Damn Carmen, it sounds like you are further ahead with things than he is, so I’m not saying get rid of him altogether but you may need to just pedal slower and allow him time to catch up. Then on the other hand, he’s acting like a man and telling you what you want to… Read More Pedal Slowly OR Just Stop?
Let’s face it- no one really likes starting over and going through the process of getting to know a new guy is kind of like torture on some ways.
