The Must-Have Man List

December 17, 2009

Do you know what you would want from a man if he popped into your life (not what you need, but what you want)? Here’s a starter list of some man qualities I think are mandatory before he can be single mom worthy: 1. Respect for you and the kids. 2. He should like you […]

Man Park or Dog Park?

September 10, 2009

I would never compare men to dogs. Never. Nope. It’s just not my style. I love my men. Before I found John Bear many of you called me a man-hater. But now I’m a walking talking dog and man loving machine. Yesterday, inspired by your adventure stories, we hopped in the car and went to […]

Trippin’, Part 2

August 13, 2009

When I meet a single and childless girl I feel an urge to sit her down and have a talk – like a grandmother would. No, honey, not that one. I don’t care how cute he is or how much money he makes. No, that doesn’t matter. He may be whispering in your ear and […]

Single Mom Dating Zen: Lions & Tigers

April 23, 2009

What if there are two men? There’s the tiger who has no rules. He has traces of warmth and is even very sweet but he’s healing, refusing to feel. His hurt is palpable and it makes you angry that some young childless thing broke this perfect man for the rest of us. Didn’t she see […]

What makes him so irresistible?

December 29, 2008

Just floating thoughts in my head of what makes a man sexy (to a single mom, and therefore eventually to all women because most of us will be mothers). This man, by the way, is a figment of my imagination. And while I have dated different men who possessed at least one or more of […]

The man I should have married.

October 13, 2008

We all have one.  The man we let go… and shouldn’t have.  Mine is in South Korea. He moved there after we broke up and hasn’t come back since, aside from a few random visits. Once we met in Amsterdam – both of us are avid travelers – and once we met in Cleveland 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.

Fall at your own risk.

July 28, 2008

Just a warning to any of my current or potential suitors. I love you all, I do – but I’m not sure if you’ll get me in the end… because I am not sure about what I’m feeling, I can’t be. I have a son. I have to be very, very careful with my heart. […]

The Rebound Year

July 25, 2008

After I left my ex-husband I wanted a new one. Immediately. I had been craving intimacy with him for two years and I was finally free to find it…with anyone. I was so blinded by my own desperation that I would check every man’s left ring finger… no matter who they were. I just wanted […]
