I Got Stood Up on Valentine's Day...TWICE

I was recently asked in a comment on my LMDLM part two post:“Do you find online dating has gotten better over the years or is making society more reticent to commit, due to having so many options?”And until I ruminated on my reply, I didn’t realize I’d never really tracked it in my copious notes or my like a teenage girl’s memory for details. However, it took about ten seconds to process and to write:...more

My Online Dating Experience

Today, I wanted to share my experiences and tips on online dating. Today, online dating is becoming more common in the world, especially as technologies continues to advance. With this being said, I started online dating when I was 18 years old. I never imagined myself to join a online dating site, but, I became curious and decided to try it out. The first site that I came across was Okcupid. I did some research on the site and explored the site before signing up....more

Yes, We Met Online

I am watching Bravo reality TV, no big shock there.  Though a commercial just came on comparing online dating sites.  Comparing a site that you don’t pay for vs. one that you do.  That got me thinking about our love story.  Coming up on our 4 year anniversary of when we first spoke, I love to reminisce about those first few days/weeks....more

What I learned from going on 30 dates in 30 consecutive nights

30 Tinder Dates in 30 Nights“I think it’s a great idea,” said my mom when I told her my plan to go on 30 dates in 30 nights. “Really?” I replied. It wasn’t the reaction I expected from her. My friends and the rest of my family were very supportive about it also. Except my grandmother, she was very worried I might meet the wrong kind of man. Ohhh grandma… don’t you know that’s what I’ve been doing for the past 15 years???...more

30 Tinder Dates in 30 Nights - Date 6: The Singer

My date for Monday night canceled AGAIN… I think I’m done with him. We haven’t even met yet and he’s canceled on me twice, because of work. Now, I get that this is probably a good reason, but twice in a row? I don’t have time for these types of set-backs! I definitely enjoyed having the night to myself on Monday, but that means I now have to schedule two dates in one day! This is tricky because I can only schedule a doubleheader on a Saturday or Sunday, too hard to meet someone for lunch during the work week....more
Seriously?!?! Don't let another opportunity walk away PLEASE. The point of this is to be out of ...more

It’s Saturday morning and I’m in the middle of a very busy day. It’s only date four and I’m already exhausted. I've had very little time to prep for this date because I couldn’t send my coaches his picture and bio ahead of time. This of course means that I have no advice and I’m going in completely blind. ...more
