Cabin Fever, Part 3

September 22, 2008

I followed my gut. And my gut was right. It was marvelous. Cabin Man (who deserves another name all together and will now be called Kennedy) knocked the wind out of me. On my long drive through the gorgeous, albeit slightly frightening bible beating countryside, I let my mind wander and threw all of my […]

Are your still obsessed with your ex?

September 16, 2008

This is for the guys. The men who have fallen madly and crazy in love with a single mom need our help. Time and time again I get e-mails from men telling me devastating stories of how their single mom, the love of their life, is still tied to her ex emotionally. They find this out when […]

Can he commit? Check his cab light.

August 6, 2008

My friend has fallen. Totally and completely. Off the deep end. In love. And the man… he’s falling too. They’re both young. Their lives are together. Everything is ripe for – BIG BREATHLESS PAUSE – marriage. (Yes, I said that scary “M” word) One huge reason for this – both of their cab lights are on. They’ve both finally decided, in their own time, that it’s time to settle down.

What do you think about the Sex and the City cab light theory? Is timing really everything? For my friend it is and I couldn’t be happier for her! They really, truly adore each other and I so want it to work out.

What is a cab light you ask?

A cab light (I’m stealing this from Sex and the City) is when someone, namely a man, is ready to get married. When a man’s cab light is on it means he’s ready for a long-term fare or committed relationship.

How to date the childless.

June 25, 2008

The first question most single parents ask when they finally get back out there on the dating scene is, “Can I even date someone without a kid?” The challenges to dating someone without a child can be daunting. Will they ever understand your life? And when they do – will they run away screaming in […]

Boys vs. Men

June 3, 2008

There are men, and then there are boys… This weekend two boys (who shall remain unnamed) where sitting in my kitchen. I was hosting a mini after hours thing. So, I popped a pizza in the oven. “I’m running outside, keep an eye on the pizza, okay?” “What? What are we supposed to look for?” […]

Dear Single Men:

May 22, 2008

I would like to introduce you to a phone. That thing with numbers. You push them. Then you talk to the person on the other end, and if it’s a girl you’re asking out for the very first time you make the call at a reasonable hour – ask her questions about herself, yada, yada […]

Prince Charming can kiss my ass

May 14, 2008
