The Nomadic Life: More Experiences, Fewer Things

I picked up the emerald dress, turning the soft jersey cotton over in my hands, looking for stains, smudges, or smears. I lifted it to my face and inhaled with a little trepidation. Good enough.

The Vanilla Sex Columnist

I've been a single and I've been a mistress and I've been a cheater. And I'll tell you something: It's really nice to have something to call, with certainty, mine. But in order to get here, I had to cut through the fear and the pressure. It wasn't easy. The pressure wouldn't have affected me if I hadn't believed that settling down would kill my career. I didn't write for months, and when I did, it was the same garbled explosion of fear. ...more

BlogHer '10 Recap: You Are Powerful

I went into BlogHer '10 thinking about the recap I'd write AFTER it was all over, which sounds weird, doesn't it? It's true, though. I've been to five BlogHer Cons (plus BlogHer Food '09) and I work here, too. I know the scene. We come. We connect. We laugh. We cry. We learn. We get angry. We wear great shoes. We're overwhelmed. That stuff -- it's the same every year. This year, going into the conference, I was really tired before I ever landed in NYC. ...more

Online Dating: Sometimes You Just Need a Break

I've been a member of an online dating site since July 2008; I've never suspended or canceled the service since it was activated. It's always there, ready for me to use if I feel like it, but my frequency of use has varied widely. There have been times where I met three new people in one week, and other times where I've met the same number of people in a month or more. ...more
