Are You Even Listening?

Despite the fact that I’m hardly a dating authority, it amuses me that I get questions from both real life friends and readers of this blog whom I’ve never met, regarding the big questions pertaining to dating and relationships. I do hate to disappoint, but I don’t actually have the answers. I just have some […]

“It’s Complicated”? Always.

When it comes to the history of my dating and romantic life, I’m not really in any position to complain. When I look around at the number of single female friends who are constantly bemoaning the lack of eligible dating partners and end up getting hooked up with people who clearly don’t treat them in […]

It explores the idea “Can we be exclusive?”, examining the idea of whether or not our popular culture eschews the idea of exclusivity in relationships in favour of […]

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind….

Over the weekend, I sent a friend of mine a care package—as I so often do— this one containing a movie that’s special to me. In the course of conversation, I mentioned the film “Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind”, a movie I hadn’t seen in years. I shared that it was slightly ironic that […]

Because Every Geeky Guy Is A Stereotype……

Earlier today, The Guy I Am Currently Dating, who would be proud to label himself a “geek guy”, forwarded this article to me. It took two seconds for me to roll my eyes. I’m sure the article came my way because he was sure I’d blog about it, and of course I did. Why is […]

Dear Avery….

It’s good to know I have a few friends/loyal blog readers who care, but you guys truly don’t let some stuff go, do you? *laughs* Earlier in the month, I posted a piece on synchronicity, in which I shared a sweet story about reconnecting with a childhood crush at a cafe in New York City, […]

It’s Not Craziness, It’s Just Life….

“I often think about Where I went wrong; The more I do, The less I know. But I know I have a fickle heart, And a bitterness, And a wandering eye, And a heaviness in my head.” —Adele, “Don’t You Remember?” Today was yet another extraordinarily stressful day, waiting to see what’s going to happen […]

Manic Pixies (Calling To Mind Hair Dye And Powdered Sugar Sticks)

“When he thought of Ellen Olenska, it was abstractly, serenely, as one might think of some imaginary beloved in a book or a picture; she had become the composite vision of all he had missed.” — Edith Wharton, The Age Of Innocence A week or two ago, The Guy I Am Currently Dating and I […]

Why Should I?

“What a man wants is to believe that a woman can love him so much that no other man can interest her. I know that is not possible. I know that every joy carries its own tragedy. Oh, it is beautiful to love, and to be free at the same time.” ~ Henry Miller After […]

Life Is Always A Soap Opera

For some reason, I thought I’d put up a post regarding this issue in the past, but I can’t seem to find it. Anyhow, a few months ago, there was this girl who showed up at my Meetup, who we’ll call “G”. I was hosting the Meetup, and was in attendance with my boyfriend, The […]
