“Is your blog your boyfriend?”, etc.

by mssinglemama on October 11, 2008

Someone asked me if my blog was my boyfriend yesterday.

I said – “Yes!” without hesitation. This blog is my boyfriend. Not literally. I don’t make out with my blog. My blog doesn’t keep me warm at night and whisper sweet nothings into my ear. But my blog keeps me happy, occupied, makes me laugh and sometimes talks back. And the time I spend on this blog is equatable to the time one would spend on a relationship. So, yes, in that sense, this blog is my relationship. And I am completely fine with that. For the first time in a long time my life has been completely focused on the right things and this is one of them.

Is that nuts? I’m not sure… I’ve always been an extremely driven workaholic and writing has always been my passion. So it makes sense that blogging would naturally be such a fit for me. I think every single mom should have a hobby like this by the way – something that fills that void where a man could be… not that they should be there. More on this later, I’m sure…

Thou shalt not dump thy blog for Prince Charming.

Blogging is a great occupier, and lets you get stuff down, feedback, and you ‘meet’ some amazing people.

Looking forward to seeing shots of you and Benjamin.

I’m sure I’ll lose my single guy license for saying this (or at least some man points), but I’d go with in-between to conservative for the photos.

I’ll now go suffer the gauntlet of dope slaps and “stupid idiot” shakes-of-the-head by my fellow men* for not pushing for “sexy”.

*And I suppose my lesbian friends as well. Mustn’t discriminate.

Just wanted to say… ~hugs~.. i miss ya! I am back around, blissfully happy. Plenty of Fish guy is amazing!

I’ll write a blog, I promise, I told the ex this past week that I was dating again… so… here I am!

OOHH enjoy the photo shoot – I have done 2 now in 2 weeks and loved them both!!

mmm is my blog my boyfriend? Possible! I get to vent and share and try and make sense of stuff on my blog – which is what I would do if I have a partner I suppose!

Wanted to let you know I loved your Commandments. Can’t wait to see the photos. My vote is for in-between on the outfit.

haha my blog should be my boyfriend!

…it sure as hell cooperates more than my last boyfriend did and lets me say what I want to say 😉

Have fun at the photo shoot!…I agree with everyone else on the in- between outfit 🙂

My blog and my awesome blog readers are definitely more comforting and loyal than any boyfriend I’ve ever had. Now that Babeland is selling the We-Vibe (hallelujah!), all I need is my Mac, my We-Vibe and Gigi and my feather comforter to have a romantic night. LOL. If only there was a vibrator that cuddled and complimented. 😉

I say sexy enough to still be sweet (so in-between). Sounds like a lot of fun!

Whew!!! So glad I’m not the only one.

Good night my lovelies!

And the photo shoot went really well – now we just have to see if we got any good shots.

Just read this — oy, I have SO much catching up to do with you, Lady (I’ve totally been outta the loop) — and it cracks me up.

My blog is TOTALLY my boyfriend!! I’d never thought of it that way, but it’s SO TRUE!
