As I’ve mentioned before, I realize that I’m not alone in having some pretty horrific dating stories. Anyone who has been single for a significant amount of time has gone on at least one date or 20 where suicide was contemplated. (Image of me, hands flailing in the air, blood-curdling scream emitting from my open terrified mouth, running wildly from the strange man seated across from me, as I head toward the kitchen and plunge my head into the closest oven.)
A friend of mine recently opted to try the online dating thing. She is creative, sweet and interesting. It doesn’t hurt that she gets...
It’s springtime. It’s Saturday night. I’m drunk. I’m at Carol’s.
I apparently had made friends with an obese Latina that had matching boob tats of something in Spanish. She was wearing stretch pants and an oversized T-shirt. She was just my style.
I noticed an attractive-looking ginger across the bar. He had a beard. I go through phases with guys. Currently, I am really into guys who wear glasses. I was previously big on beards. I also went through a brief stint of dating gingers. This guy was a redhead AND had a beard.
Yes, please, thank you!
So apparently after...
In February 2010, I decided to take a trip to Costa Rica. It was an ideal vacation for me, as not only did I fit in some beach and drinking time, but I also was able to do fun, active things such as hiking, zip lining, horseback riding, waterfall repelling and white water rafting.
Traveling solo has become a bit of a pastime for me. Don’t get me wrong, I love going to places with friends/family/significant others. But there is something very freeing about going somewhere on your own, not knowing a single soul. I’ve met so many interesting people from around the world that I never would have...
As I’ve said before, I’m pretty open to setups. Especially when it’s by someone who I trust and knows me well.
Months before I was introduced to a friend of my friend’s fiancee. This friend was living out of the state at the time, but was in town visiting for the weekend. We spent about 20 minutes talking, but I had to leave to go meet some other friends.
He asked for my number, but I said I wasn’t interested in starting anything long distance. I can barely make relationships work when you live a few blocks away, let alone a few states! He informed me that he was actually looking...
As I’ve mentioned before, I previously was in a long-term relationship. This relationship ended pretty badly, but we actually had to live together for about 5 months after its demise.
Now, for anyone who has seen the movie “The Break-Up,” you might think there would be room for some comedy. You are sorely mistaken. This was a very long five months. For me, it was basically filled with alcohol and bad decisions.
Fortunately for you all, bad decisions make great stories!
I was at my company Christmas luncheon and decided to partake in quite a few glasses of wine. The luncheon came...
