Computer Love - Two Years and Counting!

Two years ago, the day before Thanksgiving, I went on a self-inflicted blind date. Both of the boys were gone and I found myself alone for the holiday. That lucky guy was Dexter Vines.  Believe it or not, we met online and after several online chats, he decided he wanted to speak over the phone. I assumed he wanted to hear my sultry voice. LOL  Our first conversation was very down-to-earth, laid back without any clichés or formalities. It seemed we had known each other for at least six months, instead of a few weeks....more

The verdict is in...

 I was right about ‘Tuscany,’ dead right. Damn I’m good. My scum-detector is fully functional. Now I can smell them coming off like a cheap suit. I knew he was hiding something, and I finally got it out of him.I'm no pushover. ...more

Next please! FYI, you can't keep a good girl down

When it's too good to be true, it probably is.He was there (Pescara)... then 'POOF' he was gone. I've gone from "stupendous" to lost and discarded in web-dating oblivion... and likely due to some vulgar Italian muffin-top wrapped in lycra, with sausage legs, fake nails, coiffed hair, a rank belly button, and enormous tits. Fine, be with her. I'll get over it, you'll see. She'll probably hate your dog, subscribe to infinite gluttony, then you will wish you hadn't disappeared from my virtual zone of love, devotion, and fidelity....more

Addicted to love or quasi-sucker for punishment?

Yesterday's pointless 'hamster-wheel debate' between Tuscany and I continued.  I say, he says... But now this has become more of a sociological experiment for me. I am in a paradox. Writing is my raison d'etre, and being a social leper outside regular-work hours does not exactly make for interesting subject matter. My writing (work) and personal-life is now interwoven and there are no borders. I can't have one without the other. Shit. This is confusing. He's weird, but I have got nothing better to do....more

You Attract What You Are...

I don’t know how usual or unusual this is, but I had instant, strong chemistry with the very first man I met in person after I posted my profile on a dating website.  I couldn’t believe it.  Could it really be this easy?  I, very painfully, over the next several months, found that the answer was no, it wasn’t that easy.  But I learned volumes from the experience....more

Get me outta this carpet!

I would like to bring it to your attention that I have in the SAME month, had two different guys online write to me and say that they would like to ‘roll me up in a carpet and take me to Persia where we would fly over the pyramids and I would be treated like a princess.’...more

The Search for Mr Fabulous: The End of Online Dating

I did say I was going to give it a fair go ahead and I think a year is a good chunk of time to having yourself out there for the good, the bad and the crazy to contact you for a date. It was an interesting ride filled with men who turned out to be married , then there was Mr....more

Six Dangers of Online Dating

Let it be known: I am not a big fan of online dating. Yes, at least one of my best friends found her fabulous fiancé online. And if you live in a small town, or fit a specific demographic (e.g., woman over 45, ultra-busy businessperson, sugar daddy, sneaking around your spouse), online dating may expand opportunities for you. But for the rest of us, we're much better off meeting real live humans eye-to-eye the way nature intended. ...more

Adventures in Online Dating: Part the Second

I went on another date.Not with the same guy as before.No, he stopped talking to me randomly even though we had been getting along fine and talking about a second date. Which would have offended me if I wasn't completely serious about taking this whole dating thing with a grain of salt. Instead, I shrugged my shoulders and moved on.This was a different guy. One who didn't message back and forth for a million weeks before finally asking me out....more
