Minne Apple Girl - The Big Move (Chapter 1)

An involuntary sigh slid out as I checked the screen where the gates were listed  I couldn’t believe I was moving away from New York, the city I loved and lived in for 7 years, throughout college and my first post college job.  I mean, I was leaving 5th Ave (not that I could afford much there, but still), cupcake places galore, Soho, Central Park, my college friends, not to mention all the fab restaurants I still had on my food bucket list.  As I scanned the departures, I felt my phone vibrate....more

Boyfriends or lack of Boyfriends

So I have to say I do not understand how everyone I know is in a relationship or some kind of cuddle fest. My soon to be divorced BFF even has new a relationship. I seem to have the worst luck with dating or even getting a date. I do not think I am ugly or have terrible issues. I think the men today are just not into my independce. I honestly have tried dating websites and meeting mutal friends but NOTHING. What does a girl have to do to get a date. I am happy with being single but it does get to be lonely hanging out with your married friends as the third wheel....more

While I did not engage much in said conversation, I found myself revisiting what had transpired within that affair....more
