    “I Would Reach Out More But…”

    I don’t want to end up in your blog. My thoughts: You’re goddamn right. As a matter of fact, you’re already there. My reply to this: “Oh how funny, why would you say such a thing?” Moments ago, I just received one of those feeler text messages. You know the ones that start off with the usual lameness of “Hey, how are you” with the other person lying about how “Everything is all good”, then with them pretending to give a shit what’s going on with you when they ask “How have you been?”. Hmm mmm. You’ve received this feeler text OR have sent it. For a minute, I actually…

    Part Deaux

      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 simple:  Men and women think differently. This is by no means a statement that has never been heard before, but at that moment when I pulled over to the side of the road and inhaled, then exhaled before making my call to him I realized this was the gospel truth. Now before I go on…

  • My Dating Hangovers,  THIS is Why I'm Single!

    Meanwhile… in other news

    While the majority of the bloggers (didn’t realize so many of them were in the Northeast) are writing posts ranging from: – how to prepare for a hurricane – having the right snuggle boo with you in case you’re in bunkers for days And – what singles can do with themselves ALONE without their electrical crack such as computers and televisions Meanwhile… the rest of us started our weekends dealing with the usual- figuring out what to do on Friday night, wondering how to do a little shopping on a shoestring budget and of course, how to handle the men in our lives. Man oh man, are the dating and…

    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…

    Fresh Meat

    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…

    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…

      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…

    Come Back Charlie

    It’s Monday and I am STILL flying high off of another great weekend! Although I haven’t shared many details about Rescue 911 (the ex), let me just say I’ve been enjoying the reunion and the ride. Literally and figuratively. He’s like my dirty little secret, so perhaps I’ll share more about him at a later date. And since I’ve been digging in the crates, how about I update you on that little POF situation I had with the one I’m calling Come Back Charlie (thanks to Just Saying for coming up with this nickname). Remember he’s the one who contacted me saying how much he’d really like to know me,…

  • THIS is Why I'm Single!

    Unsolicited information

                                                  What are you thinking when you decide to contact an ex or someone you used to date?  I mean if you haven’t talked to a person in over a week or some extended period of time, and you’ve got your fingers ready to make that call or send a text.  We all do it, which I guess isn’t necessarily a bad thing (though I wonder what the hell is the point), but it’s WHAT you SAY to the person that makes all the difference.  Sometimes what I receive from an old fling is just retarded. Case in point – the text I received earlier this morning from USBC. …

    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…

    Steak and BJ Day!

    What I just received moments ago was from a non-reader, USBC! He would surely disown me as a friend if he found what I’d wrote about him. Still, I say over and over again, this man is a riot. I gotta give a shout out to Caleb (thank you for the laugh!) Over @ calebshreves.blogspot.com because he commented to my rant last night but I didn’t know this was actually a day MEN want WOMEN to recognize. February 15th is Steak, Blow Job and Shut the F@*k Up Day! Here is how USBC (newbies need to scroll back a few posts to figure out this acronym) feels about yesterday…. Every…
