Breaking Up Sucks, But It Doesn’t Have To

“I believe much of the pain of a breakup comes from having a life plan that you have fallen in love with. When it does not work out, you become angry that you now have to pursue a new life plan.” ~ Karen Salmansohn Break-ups Don’t Need to Be “Bad” “He is an asshole.” “His loss.” “What a scumbag.” When ….

Spread Love Every Day

“Valentine’s Day is definitely one of those days where it’s either awesome or it’s a downer.” ~ Judah Friedlander I have joked many times I am a dude when it come to relationships.

Never Compromise Who You Are

I was at a wedding, when a guy I was tentatively dating – I say tentatively because it wasn’t official, nor did it ever become official- sent me a text saying only trashy girls post pictures of themselves drinking.

Nope. ….

Single in the City

I have been told multiple times (including by my dates) that if I really wanted to find someone, I would. I have been told to stop being picky. That I have to high standards (personally I think it is morals, but what do I know), you name it, I have heard it. Like being single is not only my fault, ….

Wedding Date Trials and Tribulations

Weddings can always bring the melancholy out of the single gal, but it doesn’t have to be. In fact bringing a date can be just as stressful, do I have to hold his hand constantly if he doesn’t know anyone? And then if it is family, oh lord he is going to meet Aunt Donna in all her glory?

What not to do when Dating Online

A few months ago, I decided to give that online dating thing ago. I was skeptical. I had my doubts. But as a good little yogi I knew I had to put those aside and take a positive outlook.
