The Single Mom Dating Conundrum.

November 11, 2007

It’s been four weeks now. My new relationship status is beginning to sink in. I have a boyfriend, and I’m actually enjoying it immensely. Usually this is the point where fear takes over and I start pushing them away. I slowly eject them from my life, or cut it clean depending on my mood. But this time, I’m not feeling that way. I’m not stressed at all. I’m completely comfortable with him and totally into him. So far, the feeling is mutual.

MySpace, Facebook and Dating in a Virtual World.

November 6, 2007

“A relationship isn’t official until it’s on Facebook!” a young co-worker told me this morning. “My friend got engaged and two weeks later the announcement still wasn’t on Facebook. We all thought she had called it off or something.” Virtual social networks have changed the dating landscape… forever.

Just when I thought I was safe…

November 5, 2007

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 […]

Are all of the good men taken? And if they’re not…what’s wrong with them?

October 26, 2007

It’s been over a year and a half now of pure singleness and in that time I’ve been dating. Trying all of my options, refusing to shut any doors based on age, looks or personality quirks. I’ve dated men of all ages..26, 31, 33, 37, 38 and even 47! I’m 28.

The 47 year old was an incredibly interesting single father but there was no spark.The 37 year old calls himself a monk and can’t actually be with women physically. The 31 year old had an addiction to porn. The 26 year old wouldn’t or couldn’t stop talking about himself. The list goes on and on…

I have found that no matter what the age – they all have issues. But, as they age, these “issues” become even more solidified and the chances of changing or maybe correcting them are slim to none.

Online Dating: Rules of Thumb

October 16, 2007

My fellow single mama friend just broke up with her boyfriend. Trying to distract herself from the drama of yet another failed relationship – she jumped online. Online to the land ofhope…where single men await by the hundreds. I talked to her last night as she checked out profile after profile – “oh, he’s super cute. Oh! Here’s another one! Oh my god, he just chatted me.” This morning, gave her another call, “hello???” She sounds exhausted.”I’ve been up all night online…20 guys have e-mailed me already!”

Oh, those married people…

October 15, 2007

My friend Dave popped over this afternoon. We were pondering why we’re both still single at the ripe, yet should be married age of 28. Then I asked the question – “do you know any happily married people? I mean truly happy.” He raised an eyebrow and said, “one.”

Single Mom Night Out

October 12, 2007

Jessica Alba and Cash Warren tied the knot this weekend in a private ceremony. She’s expecting their baby girl in just a few weeks now. I’ve written about this before … about celebrities, or just us plain old folks, who get married after happy accidents – i.e. pregnancy, or in my case, getting busted by […]
