    5 Things Women Want in a Man

    Someone new reached out to me over the weekend online and sent this: I know there’s  less than a snowball chance in hell that you will even respond to this message, but sending it anyway. Your profile is well written and you’re photos are great,  depicting a woman who’s  at the tip of her game. Yet you’re  single (presumably) and online. This might be out of line, but I’m guessing you’re still single because you’re looking for that perfect guy  on your carefully crafted list of about 101 different things. But maybe… just maybe I’m wrong and if so, you’ll respond and we’ll end up riding off into the sunset.…

    The Selfish Fucker

    They say it’s best to try everything at least twice and that’s exactly what I did with this latest hangover who as of Wednesday, so it seems like this was a mutual agreement to hit it and quit it. Our initial encounter went pretty well  and if  you recall, the sexual interaction was a little strange and not very satisfying with me because it felt like I was in bed with Roger Rabbit who was doped up on some type of enhancement drug.  He just couldn’t get enough because as he said over and over again, “your pussy is just so damn good” and it seemed to me as if…

    Fifty Shades of…

    Last night’s date with a man I originally met over two years ago was painstakingly boring and from the moment we walked into a local spot for a few drinks, my mind was already wandering to the dirty limits. Who was I going to fuck once I get rid of this sappy dude?  Sounds pretty bad to think about a man while in the presence of another but it is what it is.  The night (finally) came to an end with a church hug and as soon as this ass hit the seat, I was looking at my phone wondering who would be the suitor of choice. The first person…

    I’m Here to Date, Not to Screw

    For the last couple of days, I have been trying to figure out   procrastinating on posting about my lastest date. Fresh out of the caribbean where the men worshipped me like the super bad chick that I am, right into one of the hottest sushi bars in LA for a first time meeting with a new hangover.  I can’t remember if I mentioned this last week, but there were a few “last call” stragglers I had exchanged numbers with prior to ending my membership on this dating site I’ve been on for the last couple of months. One of the men who passed the initial screening for telephone number exchange…

    The Best Lovers Ever- Contender # 2

    Day 2 of the New Year has been quite productive and I’m not even trying. I have been relaxing and camped out at my Mom’s house and went through all of my old e-mails I’d been meaning to read, save or delete, balanced the checkbook, made my to-do lists, and of course – checked out a couple of blog posts that I’d been slacking on reading (though I still have quite a few more to catch up on).  When it  was time to move on to doing some organizing, I cam across several MDH drafts I meant to post last year, but never got around to posting them. One of them was titled…

    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…

    There’s just this one thing…

    It’s about time I start having some good news to share so guess who had a nice date this weekend?  Yes, it’s true.  A nice sunny day, good eats and great conversation with plenty of laughter is how Second Chance and I enjoyed a Sunday afternoon. You know there’s always a story behind the naming of a hangover, so here’s how he received his.  This wasn’t our first encounter as Second Chance had initially contacted me almost a month ago on POF, but he failed.  Miserably.  We’d exchanged numbers after a few messages back and forth online and as I said I would, made that first phone call and left…

    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…
