    A Year of Dating Hangovers

    One year.  365 days. 53 weeks.  Several template revisions, three “About Me” rewrites, many lessons learned. 118 posts.  1,071 comments.  Thousands of Spam messages.  Encounters with an estimated 26 men.  Total of 26 disappointments with men. Countless expletives.  Many headaches.  Several arguments.  One heartache.  Happy Blogoversary My Dating Hangovers! I’m not quite sure how to feel knowing an entire year has passed since I first entered the world of blogging.  Although I started this as a hobby of sorts, to get my feet wet in the realm of online journaling, at times I wondered if I kept knocking down the different men I had encountered to give me a reason to…

    I’m Back!!!!!!

      “Come back to Jamaica…. our home is your home…” I know I’m totally dating myself, but does anyone else remember that little jingle from back in the 80’s?  Let me just say that Montego Bay was everything I had hoped it could be and then some. I’ve been back in town now for almost a week and have been trying to catch up on life which really is a buzz kill after partying, drinking and relaxing as if I didn’t have a care in the world. Another song comes to mind – “Back to life, back to reality, back to the hear and now….” Oh well. How about some…

    Closed Mouths Don’t Get Fed

    Finally, the end of the day is here! When you’ve got a lot of stuff on your mind, doesn’t the 8-hour work day seem more like a 28 hour flight sandwiched between two large people with no a/c and a bad itch down there?  Yep, pretty much like torture. So here’s part two of this morning’s surface street and bathroom post, “My Hump Wednesday” and while I’m still emotional and pissed off at this monkey wrench being thrown into the mix,  I probably shouldn’t make any decisions nor should I even be writing about this latest hangover in training but f!ck it, here it is.  Rescue’s actions are making me question my own…

    Busy Body

    Has it really been a week since I've posted?  I swear, there are probably five or six drafts stored in my phone and for whatever reason, I just hadn't forced my fingers to press "Send". Surely you realize that the absence of posts isn’t due to lack of material because you know, my dating life ALWAYS has a story. I’ve been a busy girl and there was one event in particular I had to prepare for which put my therapy to the back burner.  Only THE concert of THE most phenomenal entertainer ever:   Yep, I forked over a pretty penny to see this incredibly gifted artist and of course in…

    Week in Review

    I’m a little hungover (literally, not just from the dating scene), so I’ll try to make this brief.  Do you ever feel as if some of the things that happen in your life are part of some type of reality show or practical joke?  That’s pretty much how my week can be summed up and while it is not my intent for this to be a male bashing post, those winners accounted for many of my wow moments. In case anyone is wondering (still) why I’m single, allow me to provide a few examples of the type crap I had to ensure this week alone: Monday – Rescue 911 isn’t talked about all…

    Commitment

      His words, NOT mine:  “I really think I’ve got commitment issues and after we talked, I haven’t been able to think about anything else.  Damn, you’ve really got me thinking and now I feel bad”. Yep, TGW has issues alright but thank goodness – it isn’t ME!!!!!!  I think it was Something She Dated who cpmmented that she was tired of meeting grown ass men who were still in the figuring shit out phase in life.  I wholeheartedly agree, because not only is TGW admitting that he has issues when it comes to committing to relationships but to life in general.  In one conversation, I learned that he has a…
