Dream Date with Adonis

August 19, 2017

A dream date so unwordly that afterward I’m unsure that it really happened. The opposite of dating horror stories; on a dream date, you feel like a million bucks, and your date seems equally delighted. Like the best dreams, it stands alone, carrying no obligation to the future and needing no memory of the past. […]

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 […]

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

This summer I did something I’ve never done before… I planted six teeny tiny tomato plants. I watered them, staked them and then the little yellow flowers showed up, then the green little tomatoes. We’ve been patiently waiting for them to turn red. And Benjamin, like any 2.4 year old would be, has been enthralled […]
