Awkward Brunch: in Which Adonis and I Bump Into Each Other on a Date

August 22, 2017

Like all real things, there is a complicated side to ‘uncomplicated’.   My dream date with Adonis , for example. It was lovely, but puzzling. In between dates, we have been practically strangers to each other. He’ll ignore my texts until he wants to talk to me. Much of our lives are kept sealed away like […]

Dating Horrors, Molly Undercover Version

August 21, 2017

It’s time for another round of dating horror stories: A date with a guy that was not nearly as hot as I’d first thought: I am getting over being sick and only out with this dude due to boredom. This guy is AWFUL to talk to. When a guy launches into a speech on the […]

Single Mama Bear and The Centaur

August 20, 2017

He showed me his and I showed him mine. . .  Nicknames, that is.   ‘Wild Animal Man’ aka, ‘The Centaur’ revealed that I’m not the only one giving pet names! Awwww. . . . The Centaur doesn’t talk about feels. For example, he’s never, ever said “I like you a lot” or “I think […]

Dream Date with Adonis

August 19, 2017

A date so good that I’m not even sure it really happened.  It’s the opposite of  dating horror stories. While I want to recount dates like this to each of my friends and family, they don’t want to hear it. But I want to tell about it, if you’re interested. James Dean + a satyr […]

Texting while Dating: A Cautionary Tale

May 24, 2017

Some typos can’t be deleted. Introducing Wild Animal Man/The Centaur. I’ll explain plenty more about him in future posts. All you need to know for the purpose of this tale is, we first met when we randomly ran into each other twice in two weeks, and then we had one great date. Also, his name might seem like an […]

Very First Date After a Divorce

May 17, 2017

  To date post divorce you just have to dive in. In her famous Ted talk on vulnerability, Brené Brown says, “vulnerability is. . . the first date after a divorce” I couldn’t agree more. I was terrified before my first date! Three months after my husband and I separated, I wasn’t looking for someone to […]

Sad Clown in an Arcade

May 15, 2017

Sitting in an arcade for Tim’s birthday party with a bunch of twelve year olds. Being a cheerful mom is the last thing I want to do right now. Earlier today I had a break up-ish conversation with Cat Guy. It can hardly be called a break up, because he’s only been around for three […]

In bed…

July 11, 2012

Sleep has always been a touchy subject for me. I never get enough of it and I am jealous of people who do. I envy well rested people like most women envy dewy, perfect skin or thin thighs. You can have your thighs and your skin, I just want sleep. I used to dread sleeping. […]

Romance vs. Love: What’s the difference?

November 23, 2011

I always pick books up, read a chapter or two, set them down for weeks and then pick them back up later to read a few more. If you recall a few posts back I recommended Gloria Steinem’s Revolution from Within. And as usual, I then didn’t finish it… but a few nights ago I […]
