Copenhagen or Bust!

  1. Tell toddler his or her microscopic plastic monkey wants to ride in a boat. Hint: Make monkey whisper in your ear. Act alarmed and sad when plastic monkey tells you he’s never, ever been in a boat before.
  2. Ask toddler if he or she knows where the monkey can find a boat.
  3. Remind toddler of the toy boat in the bath tub.
  4. Bonus: tell toddler the monkey also wants to help wash his or her hair!
  5. Toddler will lead you by the hand to the tub, his or her jaw will hang open upon the realization that small plastic monkeys can whisper in Mommy’s ear.

Photo Evidence: Sorry it’s blurry, I was giggling.

See the little monkey???

He’s there, in the center of the white thing. HILARIOUS. Benjamin would check on him every few minutes, just to make sure the monkey was having a fine time in his boat.

UPDATE: It’s all better now. I love you Brad.

Many of you may not even have noticed – but my site is slightly messed up right now.

It’s my fault. I got ambitious and messed around with my CSS Stylesheet. I chose to do this on a weekend when, Brad, my CSS and WordPress Consultant is out in the boonies on a camping trip. Anyway, there you have it – no tabs along with errant colors and post titles. Sorry my site temporarily looks ugly. Feel like I have a gigantic pimple on my nose or something.

Thanks for your patience.

I can’t ignore this anymore. A few months ago I wrote an entry on how social networking has changed the face of dating. This entry was inspired by my boyfriend’s sudden and rather shocking announcement to me in bed that he’d changed his relationship status on Facebook. This entry alone has pointed hundreds of people to my site – all searching under these terms, “how to change my relationship status on Facebook/MySpace.”

So I thought it my duty to give them the answer. Here you go all of you newly single or newly tied up virtual world fans…

To change your relationship status on MySpace:

1. Go to Background & Lifestyle

2. And – whalah – you’re there. Sounds so easy but filing your relationship under “background and lifestyle” can be a bit misleading. The first time I had to change my status on MySpace it took me at least 15 minutes to figure it out…I was scrolling through every tab – so frustrating. Anyway there you go.

To HIDE your relationship status on MySpace:

1. In the Heroes section enter: <table><tr><td><table><tr><td>

2. At the top of the About Me section enter: <style>.hidethem {visibility:hidden; display:none;}</style>

To change your relationship status on Facebook:

1. Click the small edit icon right next to your profile icon.

2. Click relationships and change. Easy again.

To HIDE your relationships status on Facebook:

1. Click the small edit icon righ next to your profile icon.

2. Click relationships.

3. Choose select status: – then it leaves it blank on your profile page.

P.S. I figured this out after my boyfriend and I broke up – then got back together again. After our reconciliation he just didn’t list his status. He’s smart…that’s why I like him.

The Fine Art of Dumping

MySpace and FaceBook have really changed dating as we know it…
Six weeks ago I had reached a point of complete contentment with being single. Over the past year and a half I have been looking, searching for someone. There was a pattern. I liked a guy. We hit it off. I scared him off. My friends told me, “you’re calling him too much.” What? I have a child. Do I really have to play these dating games anymore? “Great,” I said, “then I’ll get rid of him quickly. If he doesn’t want a phone call from me, why would I want to be with him?” It was like a reflex, something inside of me trying to protect our little life from being broken.

“There are rules,” my friends would say. Rules? Oh, yeah. Those damn rules. I used to play by the rules. I used to be a dating diva, often dating more than one guy at once. It was my independence that attracted them. But after being married for two years and a mother for nearly two years I have completely lost my edge. It just can’t happen. I can’t see myself ever returning to those days of care free dating. So, what’s a single mom to do? Forget about it. And that’s what I did. I decided not to date a guy who makes me feel like I have to play by the rules. They are either completely into me or they aren’t. And I have to be completely into them – because this single thing is actually pretty damn cool.

I was at a coffee shop, enjoying my new found indifference. I could tell, it was working already. Men were actually looking at me, checking me out, sauntering near my table on the patio, lingering for a smoke. Maybe it was because Benjamin wasn’t with me. Babies aren’t great pick up tools for women, funny double standard there. Anyway, I think it was also the fact that I wasn’t looking at any of them. I didn’t care.

Then my phone rang. It was an old friend and she desperately needed a ride out to a bar in the burbs. A place where I never venture past dark. I hate the suburbs, especially bars in the suburbs. I can’t say no – she’s desperate. Damn, I think, my first night of just completely dating myself and I’m going to a bar. We get there and I find out she’s meeting two completely drunk men in their late 50’s. Not my bag. I head outside for a cigarette. I’m still enjoying my own company, not striking up conversations with any of the men around me – completely content. And then a guy sits down at my table. He starts up a conversation. I’m witty, I’m funny, I’m happy because I just don’t care. And then his friend walks in, “this is Kris,” he says. Oh no. Oh no. God, he’s cute. He’s so cute. He’s wearing a vintage suit, he is tall, dark and handsome. I couldn’t have dreamt up a better guy for me – just based on looks. I still don’t care. But I want to see – is he intelligent, is he funny? I can’t go back inside and talk to the old creepy men.

I start talking. This Kris character definitely looks a bit bored to be at this bar as well. I test the waters with some snappy comments a guy for me would understand. He sits up in his chair. “We’ve got a smart one here,” his buddy says to him. From this point on it’s all over. We were laughing and talking all night. That was on a Monday night – yes, a Monday night, it’s the night Benjamin’s dad is here so it’s my one “free” night of the week. Before I left the bar I got his number, called his phone so he had mine and invited them out for Friday night. When we left, Kris grabbed me in a big hug. A hug that was so incredibly refreshing. He’s young, he’s innocent, he doesn’t have any baggage. He just wants to be with me. There were no rules in that hug.

That night I had a dream – about him. We were kissing, we were together. What??? I had a dream about a man? This never happens. I was married for two years and had only a few dreams about my own husband. I woke up and decided to text him. That dream was an incredible tease. “Thanks for the hug.” He wrote back, “no problem, you’re a sweetie and very hugable. I’ve got class until 8:00 – after that I’ll be feeling like calling you.” He called at 8:15. No stress. Completely adorable and now it’s been three weeks. We talk on the phone at least two times day, we see each other two nights a week. I don’t feel myself losing control because this time around I am gauging this relationship against my content single frame of mind.

Note to self – you can not be happy with someone else, unless you are completely happy with yourself. Getting there is the tough part.

eharmony.jpgLet me preface this by saying, I went into this online dating thing with total enthusiasm and a very open mind. After all, I’ve heard that friends of friends have actually gotten engaged after meeting online. And with very little free time on my hands – why not try it out?

I started out as a voyeur.

I would scope out the men on Match.com. They all looked like loser players, so I moved on to eHarmony. Those commercials are just so enticing. Could those people be real? They have to be, right? So I sign up.

I take the super personality tests of all personality tests and then wait as my matches come in. Some are 47, some are 37, some are fishermen living in Alaska, others are construction workers in my own back yard. Not that I have anything against fishermen or construction workers or older men. But I’m looking for a young professional, college educated, like-minded individual, not someone who I clearly would have nothing in common with.

I check my match settings. They’re set at preferences the system is clearly ignoring.

There are a few interesting men who do pop into my inbox…so I e-mail them. I wait, days, weeks and never hear a word. Then I realize – these men probably signed up for free and then jumped the boat. Or, even worse, they were probably paying members years ago. The thing about eHarmony is that you actually have to turn your matching off when you cancel your membership, otherwise they keep you in the system. It’s why they can boast so many “active” members and keep sending you dozens and dozens of useless new matches each day.

I actually e-mailed eHarmony telling them I thought their matching system was crap. They wrote me a long winded e-mail back telling me I needed to expand my matching preferences. They refused to give me a refund of my $110 membership fee. So, I stayed on, after all I had paid for three months – why not use it?

Recently I found a match that peaked my interest. A single dad, college educated, cute and his profile description was intriguing. We meet for a lunch date. A nice, safe lunch date. This after talking on the phone several times. He shows up, I stand up, and I’m towering above him.

“Oh, damn,” I think. “Why in the hell did I wear these heels?”

He was very, very sweet and it was a nice lunch – but there wasn’t an ounce of chemistry. Our personalities couldn’t have been more incompatible. So much for the eHarmony matching “system.” I’ll keep you posted if I do find compatible matches, but so far it has been a joke.

I will say – if you are going to try online dating – go with a site where you can search profiles yourself. And there is no personality matching system that can beat your own gut instinct.

If you are new to eHarmony you must read this post on the eHarmony Blog (yes, there’s a blog on eHarmony. It’s fantastic. Consider it the eHarmony bible. Go now by clicking here.)

****UPDATE****

Check out PlentyofFish.com, it’s quickly becoming the most popular online dating web site out there because – it’s FREE. I haven’t tried it myself (no need as I’m now in a fantastic relationship – fyi – I met him in a bar, the good old fashioned way).

Another great place to scope out all of the single men or women who have profiles posted in your area is Oodle.com. Go to personals and search by zip code, the site lists all of the people with profiles in your area. Pretty spiffy.

And then there’s always MySpace – also free. Most of my twenty-something friends meet their men here…send them a friendly message or two and then exchange numbers.

My friend have also had a lot of luck on Yahoo Personals…cheaper than Match and easier to use.

  1. Tell toddler his or her microscopic plastic monkey wants to ride in a boat. Hint: Make monkey whisper in your ear. Act alarmed and sad when plastic monkey tells you he’s never, ever been in a boat before.

  3. Remind toddler of the toy boat in the bath tub.
  4. Bonus: tell toddler the monkey also wants to help wash his or her hair!

He’s there, in the center of the white thing. HILARIOUS. Benjamin would check on him every few minutes, just to make sure the monkey was having a fine time in his boat.

  1. Tell toddler his or her microscopic plastic monkey wants to ride in a boat. Hint: Make monkey whisper in your ear. Act alarmed and sad when plastic monkey tells you he’s never, ever been in a boat before.
  2. Ask toddler if he or she knows where the monkey can find a boat.
  3. Remind toddler of the toy boat in the bath tub.
  4. Bonus: tell toddler the monkey also wants to help wash his or her hair!
  5. Toddler will lead you by the hand to the tub, his or her jaw will hang open upon the realization that small plastic monkeys can whisper in Mommy’s ear.

UPDATE: It’s all better now. I love you Brad.

Many of you may not even have noticed – but my site is slightly messed up right now.

It’s my fault. I got ambitious and messed around with my CSS Stylesheet. I chose to do this on a weekend when, Brad, my CSS and WordPress Consultant is out in the boonies on a camping trip. Anyway, there you have it – no tabs along with errant colors and post titles. Sorry my site temporarily looks ugly. Feel like I have a gigantic pimple on my nose or something.

Thanks for your patience.

I can’t ignore this anymore. A few months ago I wrote an entry on how social networking has changed the face of dating. This entry was inspired by my boyfriend’s sudden and rather shocking announcement to me in bed that he’d changed his relationship status on Facebook. This entry alone has pointed hundreds of people to my site – all searching under these terms, “how to change my relationship status on Facebook/MySpace.”

So I thought it my duty to give them the answer. Here you go all of you newly single or newly tied up virtual world fans…

To change your relationship status on MySpace:

1. Go to Background & Lifestyle

2. And – whalah – you’re there. Sounds so easy but filing your relationship under “background and lifestyle” can be a bit misleading. The first time I had to change my status on MySpace it took me at least 15 minutes to figure it out…I was scrolling through every tab – so frustrating. Anyway there you go.

To HIDE your relationship status on MySpace:

1. In the Heroes section enter: <table><tr><td><table><tr><td>

2. At the top of the About Me section enter: <style>.hidethem {visibility:hidden; display:none;}</style>

To change your relationship status on Facebook:

1. Click the small edit icon right next to your profile icon.

2. Click relationships and change. Easy again.

To HIDE your relationships status on Facebook:

1. Click the small edit icon righ next to your profile icon.

2. Click relationships.

3. Choose select status: – then it leaves it blank on your profile page.

P.S. I figured this out after my boyfriend and I broke up – then got back together again. After our reconciliation he just didn’t list his status. He’s smart…that’s why I like him.

The Fine Art of Dumping

MySpace and FaceBook have really changed dating as we know it…
Six weeks ago I had reached a point of complete contentment with being single. Over the past year and a half I have been looking, searching for someone. There was a pattern. I liked a guy. We hit it off. I scared him off. My friends told me, “you’re calling him too much.” What? I have a child. Do I really have to play these dating games anymore? “Great,” I said, “then I’ll get rid of him quickly. If he doesn’t want a phone call from me, why would I want to be with him?” It was like a reflex, something inside of me trying to protect our little life from being broken.

“There are rules,” my friends would say. Rules? Oh, yeah. Those damn rules. I used to play by the rules. I used to be a dating diva, often dating more than one guy at once. It was my independence that attracted them. But after being married for two years and a mother for nearly two years I have completely lost my edge. It just can’t happen. I can’t see myself ever returning to those days of care free dating. So, what’s a single mom to do? Forget about it. And that’s what I did. I decided not to date a guy who makes me feel like I have to play by the rules. They are either completely into me or they aren’t. And I have to be completely into them – because this single thing is actually pretty damn cool.

I was at a coffee shop, enjoying my new found indifference. I could tell, it was working already. Men were actually looking at me, checking me out, sauntering near my table on the patio, lingering for a smoke. Maybe it was because Benjamin wasn’t with me. Babies aren’t great pick up tools for women, funny double standard there. Anyway, I think it was also the fact that I wasn’t looking at any of them. I didn’t care.

Then my phone rang. It was an old friend and she desperately needed a ride out to a bar in the burbs. A place where I never venture past dark. I hate the suburbs, especially bars in the suburbs. I can’t say no – she’s desperate. Damn, I think, my first night of just completely dating myself and I’m going to a bar. We get there and I find out she’s meeting two completely drunk men in their late 50’s. Not my bag. I head outside for a cigarette. I’m still enjoying my own company, not striking up conversations with any of the men around me – completely content. And then a guy sits down at my table. He starts up a conversation. I’m witty, I’m funny, I’m happy because I just don’t care. And then his friend walks in, “this is Kris,” he says. Oh no. Oh no. God, he’s cute. He’s so cute. He’s wearing a vintage suit, he is tall, dark and handsome. I couldn’t have dreamt up a better guy for me – just based on looks. I still don’t care. But I want to see – is he intelligent, is he funny? I can’t go back inside and talk to the old creepy men.

I start talking. This Kris character definitely looks a bit bored to be at this bar as well. I test the waters with some snappy comments a guy for me would understand. He sits up in his chair. “We’ve got a smart one here,” his buddy says to him. From this point on it’s all over. We were laughing and talking all night. That was on a Monday night – yes, a Monday night, it’s the night Benjamin’s dad is here so it’s my one “free” night of the week. Before I left the bar I got his number, called his phone so he had mine and invited them out for Friday night. When we left, Kris grabbed me in a big hug. A hug that was so incredibly refreshing. He’s young, he’s innocent, he doesn’t have any baggage. He just wants to be with me. There were no rules in that hug.

That night I had a dream – about him. We were kissing, we were together. What??? I had a dream about a man? This never happens. I was married for two years and had only a few dreams about my own husband. I woke up and decided to text him. That dream was an incredible tease. “Thanks for the hug.” He wrote back, “no problem, you’re a sweetie and very hugable. I’ve got class until 8:00 – after that I’ll be feeling like calling you.” He called at 8:15. No stress. Completely adorable and now it’s been three weeks. We talk on the phone at least two times day, we see each other two nights a week. I don’t feel myself losing control because this time around I am gauging this relationship against my content single frame of mind.

Note to self – you can not be happy with someone else, unless you are completely happy with yourself. Getting there is the tough part.
eharmony.jpgLet me preface this by saying, I went into this online dating thing with total enthusiasm and a very open mind. After all, I’ve heard that friends of friends have actually gotten engaged after meeting online. And with very little free time on my hands – why not try it out?

I started out as a voyeur.

I would scope out the men on Match.com. They all looked like loser players, so I moved on to eHarmony. Those commercials are just so enticing. Could those people be real? They have to be, right? So I sign up.

I take the super personality tests of all personality tests and then wait as my matches come in. Some are 47, some are 37, some are fishermen living in Alaska, others are construction workers in my own back yard. Not that I have anything against fishermen or construction workers or older men. But I’m looking for a young professional, college educated, like-minded individual, not someone who I clearly would have nothing in common with.

I check my match settings. They’re set at preferences the system is clearly ignoring.

There are a few interesting men who do pop into my inbox…so I e-mail them. I wait, days, weeks and never hear a word. Then I realize – these men probably signed up for free and then jumped the boat. Or, even worse, they were probably paying members years ago. The thing about eHarmony is that you actually have to turn your matching off when you cancel your membership, otherwise they keep you in the system. It’s why they can boast so many “active” members and keep sending you dozens and dozens of useless new matches each day.

I actually e-mailed eHarmony telling them I thought their matching system was crap. They wrote me a long winded e-mail back telling me I needed to expand my matching preferences. They refused to give me a refund of my $110 membership fee. So, I stayed on, after all I had paid for three months – why not use it?

Recently I found a match that peaked my interest. A single dad, college educated, cute and his profile description was intriguing. We meet for a lunch date. A nice, safe lunch date. This after talking on the phone several times. He shows up, I stand up, and I’m towering above him.

“Oh, damn,” I think. “Why in the hell did I wear these heels?”

He was very, very sweet and it was a nice lunch – but there wasn’t an ounce of chemistry. Our personalities couldn’t have been more incompatible. So much for the eHarmony matching “system.” I’ll keep you posted if I do find compatible matches, but so far it has been a joke.

I will say – if you are going to try online dating – go with a site where you can search profiles yourself. And there is no personality matching system that can beat your own gut instinct.

If you are new to eHarmony you must read this post on the eHarmony Blog (yes, there’s a blog on eHarmony. It’s fantastic. Consider it the eHarmony bible. Go now by clicking here.)

****UPDATE****

Check out PlentyofFish.com, it’s quickly becoming the most popular online dating web site out there because – it’s FREE. I haven’t tried it myself (no need as I’m now in a fantastic relationship – fyi – I met him in a bar, the good old fashioned way).

Another great place to scope out all of the single men or women who have profiles posted in your area is Oodle.com. Go to personals and search by zip code, the site lists all of the people with profiles in your area. Pretty spiffy.

And then there’s always MySpace – also free. Most of my twenty-something friends meet their men here…send them a friendly message or two and then exchange numbers.

My friend have also had a lot of luck on Yahoo Personals…cheaper than Match and easier to use.

I bought a ticket to Denmark.

I know what you’re thinking. She’s lost her mind! She’s wrapped up in a torrid love affair with the Dane!

My little brother called me when he found out, “Alaina? You’re flying to Denmark? So you’re really serious with this guy, huh?”

There was an obvious hint of concern in his voice, rightly so. I have a reputation for “losing it” over men. I did marry Benjamin’s father just because he needed a Green Card, we were in love – hence the child – but still, it was “crazy.” I did have a tendency to go crazy over men, but now as a single mom, falling in love just isn’t the same. And I’m not falling in love with Thomas…I can’t! He lives an ocean away… but I can visit him. Besides, it’s been years since I’ve had the chance to go to Europe.

So here’s the skinny on the Dane and why he’s worthy of a visit.

Aside from my friend Mia and her daughter Sydney (who calls herself Benjamin’s sister) we have no one in our lives on a regular basis. I have quite a few amazing friends and a very supportive mother, but when it comes to the daily grind – Benjamin and I are completely alone.

Thomas and I had reconnected through Facebook recently and when he told me he was coming through to visit our college town – where we’d met and dated 8 years ago – I offered up my guest bedroom and my services as hostess.

I remembered Thomas as being completely open, honest, fun and of course, incredibly attractive … but how would he handle five days with a single mom and her two year old? I was a bit nervous as his arrival loomed. Personally, I think Benjamin and I are a blast, but not all men see it that way. What if it would be awkward? What if he didn’t like kids?

But it wasn’t awkward at all. It was amazing.

  • He immediately bonded with Benjamin, the two loved each other
  • He woke up with Benjamin every morning he was here, giving me a chance to sleep in! A miracle!
  • He ran grocery errands.
  • Cooked dinner for me (the first time a man’s made me dinner in oh – at least two years).
  • I had mentioned that I loved European chocolates, so he found some and surprised me with them later.
  • He gave me compliments – lots of compliments.
  • He asked me questions and waited for the answers
  • And above all, he understood that Benjamin comes first.

These weren’t cheesy attempts at winning my heart, they were just natural gestures of affection and consideration. I didn’t have to ask him for help – he just did it.

So for five days, Benjamin and his mommy were spoiled rotten.

There’s this little thing about being a single mom though – after you get used to doing it all on your own 99.9% of the time, help can be a mixed blessing. Once it’s gone, you have to adapt all over again. Fortunately, in this case, the spoilage only lasted five days. Keep in mind, the guy was trapped with us, all of my ex-boyfriends have had limited face time with Benjamin, which meant limited chances for me to “get used to help.” I do this for a few reasons, the first to protect Benjamin and the second to protect myself. But in the case of a house guest – what are you going to do? Hide him in the closet?

The night Thomas left Benjamin and I were cleaning the car. The traces of our marvelous weekend were tucked in pockets and under the car seats. The New York Times from the bookstore, Benjamin’s soccer ball we’d brought on our hike and the sunscreen lotion from the music festival.

Then, with my hands clutching memories that I knew would fade too quickly, the tears started to fall. He was just so fantastic, such great company and such a supportive friend. And there we were – my little Benjamin and I – completely alone again.

And now you know why it took me so long to write about all of this.

Thomas reminded me that truly compassionate, considerate and affectionate men do exist. And there was romance – but it the kind of romance two people have when there is a profound and mutual respect for each other, not a ripping each other’s clothes off romance. Like Kate Hudson (my hero single mom) has said, “When you’re a single mom, dating becomes very adult.”

You didn’t think this single mama would give up her fabulous singleness that easily, did you?

Now, if Thomas lived in my zip code – might be a different story.

UPDATE: A few days after writing this post, Thomas wrote about the experience through his eyes, read it here.

UPDATE II: See how the trip went.

So well said.

I’m feeling especially jaded about letting people – dates or otherwise – in our lives because I am all too aware that THEY DON’T GET IT. They see the fun times: toys and the playground and cuddles and book-reading. They don’t see (and don’t consider) the tantrums and refusal to eat veggies and picking up a kid at the end of an 8-hour workday who then says ‘I don’t want you. I want daddy’…three days in a row.

Sorry. That’s my own rant. But likely one that most (single) mums can relate to. Especially, if like me, your friend-base is full of non-mums who just don’t get it.

I got a little flutter in my stomach when I read “after you get used to doing it all on your own 99.9% of the time, help can be a mixed blessing”…..we do such a fabulous job of making our lives work, most of the time, really well, all by ourselves. It is SO DIFFICULT to let someone in enough to allow them to help, feeling like you can’t trust the helper. How wonderful to have the Dane dropped back into your life, at a time that you were open to letting someone in just enough to see….what, I’m not sure….that finding a perfect-for-you partner is possible for a single Mom? Maybe? Congratulations to you for making the decision to go visit, and for making the decision to enjoy your connection with the Dane, whatever that may end up being. Enjoy! And thank you for sharing this story!

You are insane! Your Europe plan sounds totally reckless, impulsive, irresponsible, and is clear evidence that you have not considered the consequences of your actions. In other words, it sounds like love.
I wish you every happiness there. Good luck!

And as always, MY READERS ROCK! Seriously, I love your comments and so glad you took something away from this story – that’s the whole point, right?

I completely empathize with your mixed emotions, as I’m still adapting to having “help” myself. I’m still horribly independent and I credit being a single mom for so long for that trait.
I think you will have a blast on your trip! I can’t wait to hear about it!!!
