When we discuss the beauty of relationships, we typically describe them in terms of good or bad. But as a woman who’s dated many men and married none, how about considering them in the range of taste buds? That's what I ponder in this Taste in Men post....more

Playing in the Sandbox: 30:30 Somethings

My life has been devoted to great relationships with both men and women.

My Yummy called today.

He called today. I emailed him last night, requesting a work related favor, and he called this morning with the results of my request.  He could have emailed, but he called. I'm giddy... again... and feeling foolish at the same time... again.  We have nothing in common, and I’m sure he's just as aware of that fact as I am.  We are co-workers and we all know you should never date a co-worker, right?  But damn, this man is yummy!! But is he yummy enough for the risk? Am I? I transferred to his department less than a year ago....more

She's right. ...more

As my divorced girlfriend Amy told me about a recent first date she went on, she was practically squealing.  For not only was her date smart, funny and gentlemanly, she was...more

What Should I Be When I Grow Up?

Please excuse this entry if it is clumsy. It is my very first. I have spent the entire day on the internet searching for an answer to the question that has been chasing me for the past 5 years..."What should I be when I grow up?" I am seriously considering changing it to "Is 40 to young to claim to be retired?" for obvious reasons. ...more
