Are You My Date? How To Find Him When You've Never Met Him Before

When you’re meeting someone you’ve never met before for dinner or drinks, and you’re the first to arrive, where do you wait for them? For example, a blind date or someone from an online dating site – anything like that where you aren’t arriving together. It can be awkward enough going out with someone that you’ve never actually met in person before, and worrying about how you’re going to know it’s them or not makes it even more nerve wracking....more

A lone wolf is a heavy burden for a woman

The first thing a woman in a relationship with a lone wolf notices about him is that he doesn't have any men friends. That's the definition of a lone wolf. Even worse though, is if his friends are all women....more

What If Your Fear Is Right

In the middle of the night, fear can taunt me with that thought. I woke up this morning with its voice loud in my ear.  You know what that's like, when the sunlight seems unable to scare away the demons that haunt you at 3am. I tried my usual tricks to silence fear's voice -- singing two songs at once (you think I'm kidding, but it works), counting sit-ups out loud and keeping myself occupied. Laundry at 7am, anyone? Then it hit me. It's time to look at what I'm afraid of. ...more

When is a Single Mum no Longer a Single Mum?

I have been asking myself the question in the title of this post for the last week or so and I am still not sure of the answer. I guess I am technically still a single mum? I think at least, but for a while now I have stopped feeling that way. ...more

Introducing Nosy Neighbor

M.C. Nugget and I woke up one Saturday morning to what I initially interpreted as a sweet note from our otherwise nosey, busy-body neighbor. It read something like this,“Hey guys!  I just wanted to let you know that I am a very light sleeper, so because of this, I sleep mostly in the living room!  Anyway, I will be away at my boyfriend’s through Sunday, so if MC (me – Ms Cheevious) would like to park in my space, that would be fine!”...more

Still Waiting ... to be Engaged!

They've talked about marriage. They both agree this is where their four-year relationship is going. But when is he going to ask? Being his wife and starting a family is all that she can think about and it doesn't feel like he's getting any closer to popping the question. What's a woman to do? ...more
I completely agree with you.  Relationships are such a double edged sword..  How do we, as ...more

Deciding to Follow My Dreams or My Heart

Got A Case of Emotional Horniness?

 You know the feeling: It's not quite about sex...more the need to feel emotionally connected/bonded/attracted to someone. The single life can be nothing short of outstanding if you own it and take advantage of all your freedom has to offer. However, living even the most fabulous of single lives does not exempt you from yearning for intimacy. You miss hugs, cuddles, slow kisses, having a guy look at you and smile, and the feeling of knowing that he is really into you.  ...more
