I Was Told I Wasn't "Pretty" On A First Date

I can honestly say that I have been on some of the worst dates in the history of the world.  And, of course, I totally checked the history of the world before I made that claim to fame.  Today, I’m going to share one of my more treasured memories with you. You may want to sit down for this one.  Scratch that.  Grab your laptop, find a friggin’ bed and lay down.  Yeah, it’s that bad....more

7 Misconceptions About NFL Wives, Players, and Their Families

It’s a given that wives of current NFL players and wives of former NFL players have one thing in common: Our husbands have beat incredible odds to play football at the professional level—only .218% of American men make it to the NFL. Beyond that, though, we’re all about as diverse as fish in the sea, even though others might think differently. Here are some of the most common misconceptions that plague us all. ...more

The Day I Discovered That I Just Don't Give A Shirt Anymore

Years ago, before the kids came along, back when the ex and I were young-ish and married-ish and could take wonderful, spontaneous vacations, an old ski buddy of his called him up and told him he'd gotten a screaming good deal on a weekend ski package to Vail, Colorado.I don't ski....more

Women Talk About Guys the Way Guys Talk About Cars

This past weekend I sat and listened to 5 guys (one of which was my boyfriend, Mark) discuss cars for two hours straight. I turned to the person next to me and asked, “Do they always talk about cars?” He said, “Well, to be fair. They all love cars and when guys get together they’re going to talk about what they love.”It got me thinking: What do girls talk about when we get together? Oh yeah — we talk about our guys who only talk about cars.One of Mark’s car-loving friends compared a female conversation and a male conversation and concluded that they are exactly the same. Apparently, girls love discussing cars just as much as guys love discussing cars. All you have to do for us is swap out the word “car” for the word ...more

Totally Weddo-Phobic

I wasnt really a blogger until a few months back..when I and my boyfriend decided to get married..we are from India and belong to different castes and states (for people wondering how that matters: well..in India, language, culture, food habits vary from caste to caste and state to state).So since we belong to different castes, we faced some acceptance issues from our parents. But after pursuing for a month or two..they are convinced now!Yaaiii.But..In the contrary I am not!!! :o ..I feel I am doing the biggest mistake of my life by getting married! :(...more

Things we say, but don't say

Imagine being twenty three, married just over a year.... and now thinking, Is this really all there is??My husband is great, no doubt. The kind that wants to make everyone happy, all the time. But also the kind who feels that happiness in life is restricted to 1, Get married 2, Settle down (where it is convenient to be with his family every time,  all the time) 3, Have kids 4, Grow old....more

It Turns Out Joel the Interior Designer Wasn’t An Interior Designer OR Named Joel

Let’s take a moment to discuss pathological liars. I have already ranted about my ex-boyfriend, Joey, making up an entire vacation so that he didn’t have to hang out with me. And now you’ll find out about Joel…And, by the way, I feel okay using that name — because it’s technically not his name and I don’t think you can get angry at someone for using your real fake name.Joel, a very fashionable, good looking guy whom I met in a bar,  introduced himself as an Interior Designer.  I was impressed with that (never having met an interior designer before). We spoke for a few minutes near the coat check, and exchanged numbers....more

My wife who is also well-educated and our marriage has spanned three decades plus and we have not experienced serious problems in the past....more

Be The Boyfriend You Wish You Had

Yes, you read the title correctly. It was a toss up between the one I chose and “Treat Yourself The Way You Wanted To Be Treated.” I don’t know how guys are, but when girls get together, all we do is bitch about our boyfriends. What they do wrong, why they can’t do anything right, what stupid ass thing they said, what stupid ass thing they did, etc, etc.We could literally go on all day long. The ranting and raving usually ends with an end-of-the-night “I don’t want you to get the wrong idea because he really is a great guy” or “But I really do love him” — to which we always reply, “You don’t have to say that. I know he’s a good guy and, if you didn’t love him, you wouldn’t be with him.” Sometimes I like to throw in “because he’s such a dumbass that why would you be with him if you didn’t love the idiot?”.Anyway, after years upon years of complaining about our boyfriends’ juvenile stupidity, my friends and I have decided to be the boyfriend that we wish we had. It’s pretty much the same concept as the Destiny’s Child’s Independent Women song. You can love him as much as you want, but don’t let his actions make you feel bad anymore....more
