Dating, Perpetual Bachelorette

Taboo

Date 3 – in the books.  No, it was not WBG.  Pretty sure that door has closed.  I think he got a little upset when I asked him to stop calling me “hun.”  I do realize this is a personal and unusual pet peeve .  Call it picky if you want.  I’m not saying - nor did I ever say - that he was a bad guy or there was anything wrong with him.  I actually thought he was great.  I’m sure he’ll make some girl really happy some day ....

Venus vs. Mars

Today I’ m shifting from dating mode to detective mode.  One of the many features of this website that is taking up way too m uch of my time is that it allows you to see who has looked at your profile.  This means anyone who clicked on your pictures or your “ about me ” section, even if they decided not to contact you.  Most of the time I’ m ok with that, but occasionally I’ ll come across a guy who has viewed me but not ...

It's My Search Party, and I'll Be Picky If I Want To

I’ve been told on more than one occasion that the reason for my seemingly permanent state of singlehood is that I’m too picky.  When you’ve been through as many failed attempts at relationships as I have, you really start to figure out what you want.  And even more so – what you don’t want.  To those of you who say that looking for certain things in a partner is too picky, my question to you is:  What’s the alternative?  ...

Oh Na Na... What's My Name?

Thanks for the inspiration, Rihanna.  I love your music.  I just received one of the most flattering emails yet: “Hi. I’m not sure if I’m even your type, but I had to email you just because you have the greatest user name I have seen. I don't smoke, I love sports, particularly football, and I am a great cook. Hope to hear back from you because I think we could have a lot of fun.” Why thank you, DiverMan07.  No, you’re not...

To Reach, Or Not To Reach?

Ah, yes.  Now I remember why I don't like dating.  It's AWKWARD.    Even if it ends up going well - which I think last night did - there are so many aspects of the whole process that are just uncomfortable.  So White Belt Guy and I decided where we were meeting and what time.  He asked if I wanted to meet outside the restaurant.  (We were just having a drink at the bar).  Ok... I guess I'll meet you outside?  Is that norm...

Houston, We Have Some Problems

"Hi Again.  Something I said?  Hows your luck so far?" Oh yes…. Twinkle-toes. Apparently that fantastic “block from contact” feature is actually code for: “this person can still contact you.” At least DELETE still seems to work… I also received the following text message today: "When are you going to sit on me?" ...Excuse me?  This is from D_Licious.  Keep in mind we've had no contact in a week.  It was followed up almost...

Go Fish


Remember when you were a kid and played the card game “Go Fish?” I feel like that’s what I’m doing searching through this website every night. Except with a reverse motive.  In the game, the strategy involves asking other players if they are holding certain cards that you want.  If they don’t, you get to ‘go fish’ for the one you’re looking for.  With internet dating, it’s easy to determine right away if someone has somet...

The Relationship Resume

Sorry for the delay.  I’ve been busy with a resume.  I’ve always been intimidated by conventional dating because it feels more like a job interview than something fun and unpredictable to look forward to.  You know what I mean.  The date where you are confined to the dinner table staring at the person across from you searching for the right thing to say.  Pushing food around your plate afraid to get a piece of spinach in ...

You've Got Mail

Oh yes… TwinkleToes strikes again! “Hi. How are you? How is your week going?”  ...Really?   So- when I didn’t respond to your last 2 emails or acknowledge your last 3 IM’s, you thought maybe…?  I honestly can’t even come up with any conclusion you could have drawn from that which would indicate I still wanted to communicate with you.  Amazing.  Also, I have gotten confirmation from THREE girlfriends who have previously be...

Chivalry is Dead

I know what you're thinking.  He didn't open doors for me, offer to pay, or pull out my chair when I sat down.  No, no, no... not even close.  Chivalry really isn't all that important to me, at least not in the traditional sense.  I realize that makes me a minority within my gender as it's a deal breaker for most women, but I am perfectly capable of opening a door and pulling out a chair for myself.  But what IS important...
