    Featured Blog Post of the Week – “Toddler Man”

    This Featured Blog Post of the week comes from a fairly new blogger named SingleInLA.  I consider her somewhat of a fallen angel because she was in a place where some of us would like to be – in a committed relationship, in love and engaged and ready to spend the rest of her life with her prince charming.  The problem?  Well…. that prince charming had a little bit of frog blood and things just didn’t work out.  So after 7 years of not having to worry about getting a date for that special event, catching a movie with your snuggle bunny or reliable nookie without strings, she’s back on…

    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…

    One man at a time?

      Why is it that things seem to be going well with someone new and suddenly come to a screeching halt?  Did I jinx myself by telling a friend about the wonderful things I liked about Silver Lining only to be followed up by my reasons why things would NOT work out with him? Am I so jaded on the dating scene after having dealt with loser after loser, weirdo after weirdo and liar after liar that my negative thoughts are somehow ruining any chances I might have at meeting someone wonderful? It it unreasonable for someone to expect to be the only person I’m working on at a time, even though…

    Ignore friend request

    As quickly as he made a re-entry into my life, Come Back Charlie will likely make an even quicker exit all over an ignored Facebook request.  Well, maybe not all because of this because while I haven’t exactly been trying too hard to build up any lines of communication, he isn’t really impressing me either.  Last night as I stirred out of my sleep for a moment, I saw a new Facebook notification – Friend Request from Come Back Charlie.  I looked at it and the first thing that came to mind was what the hell for and the second was should I say no now or leave it pending…

    1-800-A-Weird-O

      As promised, I’m sharing my experience with yet another hangover from this weekend, this post being sponsored by the makers of Zoloft and Seroquel.  I introduce you to Sybil’s Brother, the icing on a prune cake made with nails and sawdust, the worst of the worst who showed his colors on Sunday like a few others and yes, another POF contender.  In a matter of 12 hours, he’d managed to talk then text himself into the hall of shame with his needy and controlling behavior.  To shed some light on how extreme this situation was, I’ll share the story by giving you a timeline of events so here we…

    Like trying to fit my size 8.5 into a 7

    Afternoon folks!  Yay, no work for me today, so I thought I’d share a little hangover, though it isn’t REALLY a hangover.  Okay, here’s the deal-  I like (Until Something Better Comes Along) USBC, and can’t emphasize how much of a cool cat this guy is. He’s spontaneous, funny and is an all around good nature guy.  Still, trying to make myself have the type of interest I would have in (say for instance, Special Agent or Hollywood*), is like me trying to squeeze my fat foot into a size 7 knowing I’m a good 8.5 on a good day.  I just can’t force it.  Oh,  and I’ve been so busy,…
