Health reminders tell us to wash our hands frequently to prevent transmittal of diseases. Did you know you can “wash” your mood, too, and give yourself an attitude adjustment whenever you want to?...more
This week its a year since I sold my wedding dress and my wedding rings. Both cost a small fortune, so I’m glad they went to a good home. The reason I know such a random fact is because of my diary. ...more
This guy I have been dating sine March (we are not official quite yet) is such a lover, yet teaser. You see.....he fought for us to meet. I liked this other guy at the time and did not know this other guy would have truly broken my heart, but he did. Then, I gave the guy I am with now a chance. His name is Bryan and he is so so wonderful. We texted for a week before we met and we sent each other sweet videos and texts. But, the thing is he does not like over attachment or to text too much. I have anxiety as the girl I am and I freak out very easily....more
After my wife and I untied the knot, I had to put myself back on the market. If you thought adolescence was awkward, try posting pictures of yourself online so people can instantly judge and dismiss you.I’d rather be back in high school and go up to a girl sweating through my Lynryd Skynrd T-shirt with a face full of acne and take my chances.Women say guys rarely look like their picture, but I can assure you it goes both ways. Whoever said the camera doesn’t lie never went on a match.com date....more
The dating game always starts out innocently enough, doesn’t it? A movie date here, a bouquet of flowers there. You’re excited; there has been a lot of flirting, laughter and belly butterflies since you met this person a little while ago.

Now I'm going to reminisce more recently about my five month stint on a cougar site. Yup. I was that 52 year old woman on a date with a 21 year old cutie and we had no idea whether you noticed or not because we were too busy checking each other out while talking, talking, talking. And YUP, he was too young for me as I told him in my first reply but as he told me judging someone by their age is really a dickhead move so then we ended up meeting twice. And more. ...more
When my partner and I first met, we did the best we could when it came to “dating” because we both had very hectic schedules and we lived in different states. The long distance was hard enough, but adding the fact that we both traveled for work only added more challenges. A couple of years later, he moved to a closer state and became more stationary, but my travel increased a great deal.
