Sex Happens

DO YOU NEED A HUSBAND? As women, we define ourselves by our connection to a man. Are we someone’s wife? Lover? Think about Eat, Pray, Love.

Ghosting and Dating

You may not be familiar with this, as was my case, but the term is called Ghosting.   Urban Dictionary defines it as such: Ghosted – To abruptly stop all forms of communication and contact with someone else especially an online relationship. When someone you were relatively on good terms with suddenly doesn’t respond to your messages anymore or doesn’t…

On Line Dating, Is It For You?

I have asked myself this question a thousand times.  I have heard my friend’s opinion on this subject a thousand times.  So what is the answer?  Will online dating work for you, is it something you should try?  What are the pros and cons of online dating?  First, before you make the decision to put yourself…

Kiss And Tell. It’s in the Kiss?

A recent date said something to me that got me thinking …He said that you can’t tell if you are going to like someone or not (have that chemistry) until you kiss them.  Hmmm …I am not sure that I agree with that.  If I look at them and don’t see attraction …well then, chances are…

Do you ever have a date where you are left with so many unanswered questions? The date ends and you are wondering what was that all about?  You leave the date going WTH?  It happens to me a lot, more than I would like to admit, actually. I took a break from the dating scene for a little…

Memoirs of a Dater – Chapter Two

It has been awhile since I wrote about  “tall, dark, handsome and never going to commit” aka Prince Charming.  I suppose in some ways I don’t want to finish the story …after all this time, now, is it really worth sitting down and putting the experience into words?  Does it really matter anymore?  But then again … if one…

Memoirs of a Dater – Chapter One

 At the time of my divorce, I was living in Austin, Texas.  Looking back now, there was no better place to be after a break.  Austin has so much to offer,  so many things to do and places to go.  Anyone at any age can find a multitude of things happening at any given time in Austin.  It was not to…

3 Strikes and You’re Out!

So I had a date a couple of weeks ago and it went like this … 1.  The guy could not find the place.  Called to say he was running late and could I give him directions.  I gave him directions best I could but he wasn’t understanding and seemed a bit irritated with me…
