There are no wrong decisions.

When I was 24, I was broke and single. I was doing what I loved working 60-hour weeks. That summer, I was a bridesmaid in three weddings, and attended three more as a guest.I had dates and a few relationships scattered over the years, but not one time did I picture myself in a house with a white picket fence and a husband and some kids. Even in the flurry of bouquets and cakes and wedding melt-downs, I never felt the urge to pair up. I was happy on my own....more

No Mud. No Lotus.

“Just like the lotus we too have the ability to rise from the mud, bloom out of the darkness, and radiate into the world.” Author UnknownI don’t go to this place very often.

I don’t go there because I really have forgiven myself. ...more

I have a friend that recently went through a bad break-up. You know the kind where everything is alright and then out of nowhere you get the "Dear Jane" speech?

Dating Lessons from a Cut-Rate Flounder

 I overdid the on-line dating thing and am now in recovery.    I have killed off my avatar of amour, my doppelganger of dating.  I 'm no longer on any sites, my phone is quiet in the evenings and I have stopped over-using the emoji library.   Since we are mortal and I hate to think it was all a waste of time, here is what I learned from my time as Ladywriter99 on Tinder, Plenty of Fish, J-Date and OK Vapid.  1.  My Time is valuable...more

Dating: It Just Took Two “Weird” Experiences to Figure Out What the Most Potent Red Flag Is! And it’s not what you think!

I am a 28 year woman and I discuss dating (or rather the possibilities of it in my life) with my best friend. And she does the same. We have been friends since nursery and have discussed love, intimacy, dating and flirting with each other—quite naturally without feeling the need for censorship. I haven’t been in a serious relationship all my life while she has had two of them. However, we do discuss “men” in our lives and every time we do so, it’s me who comes up with the right prediction while discussing her relationships and vice versa....more

I wonder where?

Its seems that's now and days dating just ......sucks. You never know rather its true love or as if they are trying to hit it and leave it. Its like men now and days are mostly all the same.
