For my stalkers…

September 25, 2009

I now have my Facebook set to automatically update my Twitter. It means I’ll be in both places at once. Don’t you love technology? Those geek guys in California are doing such a great job of making everything so much easier for us social media addicts. If you would prefer not to hear my constant […]

How to Date Online (for the single parent).

September 18, 2008

To avoid an awkward date from hell, put a time limit on the first date from the start. Say something like, “Tuesday will work but I have to be at the gym (insert other excuse here) by 7:00.” And then, if you’re having an amazing time you can change your plans and say, “Oh, I’ll just skip the gym.” If you’re having a horrible time, get the hell out of there and go meet your girlfriends. Another great idea – meet during your lunch break at work – you’ll only have 45 minutes.

The Blogger Gods…

May 21, 2008

Have a wicked sense of humor. One week ago I told Prince Charming To Kiss My Ass. And three days later, the Blogger Gods dumped one on my doorstep. And then five days later, they took him away. Thanks. Thanks a lot. Nice way to torture a poor, lonely single mom. I wasn’t lonely before […]

MySpace and Facebook Ex Purge

May 1, 2008

I did it.

Just deleted several ex-boyfriends from my Facebook and MySpace pages. Felt wonderful. I highly recommend it. There are a few reasons for this sudden decision, but to spare anyone’s feelings I won’t write about them.

All I can say is that … there are some guys who are earning the purple octopus label. There are others, who are fighting a valiant fight, defying the odds and making me scratch my head wondering when their purple octopus eyes will pop out.

Read my past post on Do You Keep Up with Your Ex on MySpace or Facebook for more virtual love fun.

There is hope.

Do you keep up with your ex on MySpace or Facebook?

April 14, 2008

Crazy how MySpace and Facebook have changed the way we date. In just a few seconds you can scope out your ex’s relationship status, flirtatous comments and daily activities. Twitter makes it even worse. Maybe I should go on a delete binge tonight.

How often do you delete your the Ex-Profiles on MySpace and Facebook? Can you do it? Do you think I can?

Deleting an ex is like permanently severing all ties…but then I think of the ex’s who were my friends – the ones I genuinely want to stay in touch with. And then I think of the sting when I see their “latest activity.”

I vote for delete.

How to change or hide your MySpace or Facebook relationship status

January 3, 2008

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 change your relationship status on Facebook:

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.
