Being Productive vs. Quality Time

You may recall that one week ago I wrote a post where I was kind of completely freaking out about our wedding registry. We had finally made it to Bed Bath and Beyond on a Wednesday evening only to be told that their computers were down and essentially, we would have to come back another time (insert your favorite four letter words). We had decided we would go back the following Wednesday, last night, to register once and for all! Well, last night came around and we mutually decided that the registry could wait....more

Don't You Wish Your Girlfriend Was Just Like That Other Chick Across the Bar?

I recently read a blog here --  http://www.rockanddrool.com/ that was an open letter to husbands about looking at other women.  Which got that internal dialog going in me, or perhaps it was just voice hallucinations from my psychosis setting in.  Either way, whoever was in my head, it was pretty interesting.According to this blog, apparently I'm not the only woman to have experienced a lifetime of men commenting on other women to a woman supposedly important to them.  I have one question:Why?...more

Manese vs. Womanese - Lost in Translation

How is it that two people who speak  a common language (English, French, Italian, Swahili, Afrikaans, whatever it is) can understand the syllables that comes together to make a sentence and yet, get lost in translating the real meaning of what is being said. This issue and a big one at that, is even worse on the love  path especially when dating! Apparently the problem is all down to men speaking manese, and women, womanese! It is really baffling and confusing but I guess the only way around it is for me to learn the art of translation!!...more

Dear Dr. Romance: How Do I Make Sure He's Not Looking for a Visa Green Card Marriage?

Dear Dr. Romance: I met a cute guy that's a foreigner in the USA from Russia. So how do I make sure he's not looking for a visa green card marriage? Dear Reader: Whether or not he wants a green card isn't the real question.

Internet Dating: Finding online love in the day of the computer; the good, the bad and the ugly.

It seems as if finding a significant other online is the way of the present.  I remember when women and men used to lower their voice to a whisper when telling you they are dating or in love with someone they met online.  It was deemed, at first, that they were somehow desperate if that is how they met the love of their life.  There was a certain level of skepticism about the reality that the person was actually who they said they were.  Importantly, there was concern about safety.  All of those were and are legitimate.  ...more
