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...

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 ...
