Take Control of Your Dating Life With Singled Out App

Let me paint a picture for you. You finally decide to sign up for that internet dating site at the behest of your friends and family. Or maybe you did it in spite of their misgivings. In any case you did it. You uploaded your best selfies. You cropped your friends out of that photo of you in your favorite outfit. You wrote a pithy about me section so your potential suitors know that you’re funny and smart. You answered all the questions and you clicked all the boxes. You click “save” and your profile is now live....more

Every Summer Has A Story

Every Summer Has A Story Its that time of year again when I am reminded that, “"In every girl's life, there's a boy she'll never forget & a summer when it all began.” Love may start in Spring, but it evolves in Summer....more

Keeping Your Love Life Strong When you have Teenagers

There are probably thousands of articles on how to keep your love life spicy when you have infants and just as many when you have young children and yet there seems very little in the way of us parents who are single and have teenagers.For those who don’t have teenagers or no kids at all I can’t help but be amused by some of the things I hear.“ You’re so lucky you can leave your kids home and go out and enjoy yourself. “...more

When You're Not a Pof. Com Virgin, Will it Still Hurt?

The first time I went onto plenty of fish.com I was 46 and it was a shit show. My 25 year old girlfriend Eriny recommended it and my son was traveling so I thought: I’m ready! I’ll try it. Wtf? Yeah. Famous last acronym. I wrote my best dating profile and a kick ass header and chose some pictures....more

Better Have Lonely Sundays Than An Un Happy Life

One morning while I was getting ready for work The Happy Boy came to me and said "mom, everyone is going to think you have a boyfriend! You look so pretty and pretty girls have boyfriends". Yes, pretty girls have boyfriends so why I don't have one? I had a boyfriend a couple of months ago but it lasted less than a month (and one month relationships does not count) so I can say I've been single for 3 years now. I have dated a couple of lucky guys but nothing formal or, as some would say, never exclusively. Why?...more

You Can't Force a Guy Into A Relationship

There is absolutely no way to make a man commit to a relationship to you, at least not any relationship that you actually want and in which you will be happy. The best part of being in a relationship is knowing that you're connected to someone who chose to be with you, of his/her own free will and with no reluctant sense of obligation. Who wants to be with someone who needs to be coerced or dragged along unwillingly?...more

A BJ Strike

March 14th was National Steak And Blowjob Day. Yes, it was. You read correctly. This isn’t some sort of April Fool’s joke. Steak and a BJ Day was supposed to be some sort of antidote to Valentine’s Day.  I’m not diametrically opposed to this holiday in theory. In reality I’m a vegetarian with a sensitive gag reflex so my actual celebration will be limited to simply saying, “Happy Steak and a B.J. day, honey.” My main issue with this male manufactured holiday is that Valentine’s Day is for mutual consumption. Gifts are reciprocal. Whereas Steak & a B.J....more
