On Attachment, Transience, And Letting People In…

“”The less you open your heart to others, the more your heart suffers.”—Deepak Chopra It is kind of sad when you realise that someone to whom you one meant something has moved to a different place in life, and you’ve moved from being a valued part of that person’s world to a space where you’ve […]

Feeling A Little Better….

I’ve been feeling a little better the past few days, although I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because I had a really laid-back weekend with a lot of rest and catching up on TV. In fact, all I did on Friday night was watch sitcoms and episodes of Shameless with The Guy I Am Currently […]

Surviving The 1950′s Social Scene In 2013….

You may have noticed there was a blog here updating the world on my life over the past week or two, and now it’s gone. On Friday night, a friend of mine contacted me to say “Talking about your problems with other people on the internet isn’t likely to win any friends or help you […]

Old Rumours Never Die, They Just Age Gracefully…..

I have a confession to make: I’m always a little shocked when I hear rumours about myself. It’s not that there aren’t reasons for rumours to circulate about me, because there are. Most of them are crap, and those don’t bother me much. But others involve some aspect of my past or my personal life, […]

The 12 Dates Of December: An Update!!

At the beginning of this month, I decided that I was going to follow up on some pretty cool advice, and schedule the 12 Dates Of December! Of course, I don’t actually mean going on 12 dates (not only would The Guy I Am Currently Dating probably not appreciate that, I think my habit of […]

So, Why Don’t You Like Me?

I have a confession to make: After all these years, it seriously bothers me that other people don’t like me. I don’t know why it should. I’ve lived on my own since I was 17, survived in some of the most brutal and competitive cities in the world without ending up as a news story, […]

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 […]

New Friendships, And The Value Of Taking Chances…

Back when I was a healthier person, I’d routinely take off to visit friends and family that are scattered along the East Coast. It helps that my friends and family tend to be in cities that you drive through to get to other cities, giving birth to the idea of what I call the “Alayna […]

There Is No Growing Up, There’s Just Growing…

“Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.”—John Lennon Life is short, for all of us. Few of us ever have as much time to accomplish all we want to do with our lives, to determine our purpose for being here, for loving others and learning to accept the beauty of feeling loved […]

Fighting With Friends, And My Relationship With Texts…

That sounds like a band name, or a really violent Meetup event, but it is neither. Yesterday was not really a good day. In fact, it was such an upsetting day that I don’t even really want to write about it. However, since that’s how I best process and make sense of life, I will. […]
