    Five for Five

    So I’ve just received the 2011 edition of the getting to know your friends e-mail and although I’m annoyed that the sender ignored all types of etiquette before sending the message such as cleaning it up first (I really don’t need to see everyone’s comments or all of the Fwd Fwd Fwd Fwd’s) nor did she use the Bcc line (always several people who hit “reply all”).  Still , I actually like doing them and keep telling myself I’ll send one of those to a new hangover just for kicks. Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I’d come across someone’s blog who posted something called “Five for Five”;  simple and…

    The Calm.  Too Good To Be True.  The Artist.  Last week I began exchanging messages with a man who probably had one of the most detailed profiles I’ve encountered thus far and yes (gasp), one that was grammatically intact.  If you’ve ever been able to read the words written by a person and feel like you have a pretty good idea what they’re about, this was one of those instances.   I struggled with what I would call him and initially hinted that he would be “The Calm”, but that was before we met. His profile tells the world that he works hard and plays hard, about his interest in different…

      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…

    Plenty of Failure

    In this week’s episode of My Dating Hangovers, we feature stories from Comeback Charlie, Impromptu Text Date, Sybil’s Brother, Smoldering Incense and Simply Lame. Really, my encounters with men whether I meet them in person or online are worthy of an episode on your favorite soap opera.  So how about a recap of this past weekend starting from the lesser of the evils to the worst starting with……. # 5 – Smoldering Incense Just as the name indicates, Incense is one of those harmless guys because he is about as exciting as watching paint dry.  About every 6 months or so, he’ll resurface with a “Are you married yet” text…

    Nigerians Strike Again!

    It’s Friday and I’m soooooo ready for the weekend to begin.  As you can see from the number of posts this week I either (1) felt guilty for going almost a week without doing anything last time or (2) the hangovers are coming faster and faster. This my dears, will be brief and while it is not my intent to offend anyone who may be, is related to, dated one or is currently working on a scam to take all of your money if you send them your credit card information for a great deal BUT, Nigerians and the Internet are notoriously annoying! I mean really.  It doesn’t matter how…

    I’m back!

    Okay okay, fuss at me later!  As I’m sitting here with a compress on my neck and shoulder that is probably burning through a layer of my skin because it’s way to hot, I’ve got to write!!! First, confession time – I am terrible at posting over long weekends and yes, I know, this is probably a little retarded when you figure you have MORE TIME away from work to blog right?  Um…. yeah. So your girl has been missing in action and has been recovering from the partying, the men, the drinking and for the past couple of days.  Plus, my body feels like an old ’67 Chevy so I’ve been making love to with a bottle…
