    No Longer Accepting Applications

    Just like that employer deciding that the maximum number of applications for an open position has been reached, I have officially closed out my online dating profile so of course this could mean one of two things.  The first being the optimistic stance that a wonderful person is now filling my phone with “good morning beautiful” messages, calls just to say hello and bonding time getting to know one another.  OR we could go with the reality of how draining and mentally and emotionally exhausting dating can be when you continue meeting the types of men you wished were all in a landfill somewhere being shitted on daily by flocks…

    Who’s Looking For Perfection?

      “So the man has issues, at least he’s willing to spring for a $500 per night date.  Stop looking for perfection and just roll with him”. These are the words heard from a good friend ealier this week who tried to chastize me for complaining that I had a great time with Tall Glass of Wine, but realized why I decided not to continue dating him months back.   Initially, I felt a little bad because overall, he is a really great guy.  On the surface, at least.  However, just a few moments later I realized she was wrong, wrong, wrong and that I was not looking for perfection at…

    A Week of Revelations

                      A Week of Revelations “Only time will tell what happens with him or any of these other three OR any of the others I didn’t have time to mention here.”  I guess the most appropriate place to begin this post is by starting where I left off.  It’s been a little over a week since I last posted and other than the occasional feelings of disappointment, reasoning and a slew of other thoughts and random emotions, not much has really happened directly.  Meaning, I’ve finally taken my own advice of just sitting back and observing what is transpiring in my life…

    A Tale of Four Men

    Blame the bastards at Hewlett Packard for my delays in posting!  Yes, my laptop is truly on its last leg and I haven’t been able to access the Internet in almost two weeks.  Of course there’s the back-up plan using the Blackberry tool but it’s just easier in front of a real computer to spew out these different thoughts going through my head. I hope you’re ready to read and are NOT reading from a cell phone; otherwise a carpal-tunnel like sensation will develop from scrolling. Let’s go! Currently, there are four men I’ve been in contact with.  Any real contenders for anything?  I’m not sure but from the sign…

    A few hours later…

    Great minds think alike! Esme, you’re so right. Fu#k these men with all of their issues. I decided at 2:25pm this afternoon that Rescue needs to be rescued. Pun intended. I told a friend a few weeks ago we need to stop dealing with these dog pound-caliber of men. Yes, I said dog pound. They’re cute, you want to cuddle them and even though they’re tattered and beat up from life events, some of us feel the need to rescue them. So last night, I accepted a last minute invitation to see a Foo Fighters concert with….. Tall Glass of Wine. And a great time was had by all! Until…

    Phase 3- The “I don’t know how I feel” moment

    To say that this past week has been rough would be a gross understatement. I haven’t been shedding tears of “my relationship is crappy and pretty much over, but more “this whole wanting to be with someone is crappy”. Actually, I take that back – the crying has pretty much subsided and has been replaced with an attitude of indifference. Rescue has issues that need to be worked out and as much as he keeps trying to convince me that WE are okay, I beg to differ. Selfishness or love? Which is it when someone knows they’re not right for you OR need to work on themselves before trying to…

    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…
