Girl Talk: The Booty Call 2013

I got up this morning and looked at my phone, and it seems I got a booty call last night. How do I know this? I know this because this guy is interested in me sexually. That is it. He’s shown no interest in me otherwise. There have been no offers of feeding me, taking […]

Girl Talk: Dating is for Lovers

Last week, two people sent me links to this article that discusses dating in the 20 something crowd. Apparently, dating has become more of a very casual encounter consisting of a text invite and a casual night hanging out with a group of people. The article begs to ask the question, “Is traditional dating dead?” […]

Okay, Cupid…..Let’s Do This Online

I was reading through Freshly Pressed today to see what other bloggers are writing about, and I found a fellow blogger who posted about online dating. I was laughing reading it, and I realized that I haven’t written my online dating blog yet. I’ve written on The Balding of the Beaver (yes, that beaver), emotional […]

Love, the Everlasting Fountain of Youth

This morning I saw this picture on Facebook. It’s a couple I know who have been together about 3 years. I went to high school with both of them. I went to elementary school with both of them, I believe. In other words, I’ve known Mark and Denise a very long time. Someone posted a  […]

2012 – This Too Shall Pass

Click on the photos for captions. I can’t find my journal that I wrote in last year on New Year’s Day. I always write down goals for the New Year. It’s not really about setting resolutions for me.  It’s more about deciding what I want out of my life in the next year.  Sometimes I’d […]

Living: Mentoring and Coaching

One of my mentors said that she really hated that she didn’t play sports when she was growing up. She just thinks that people that played sports are accustomed to being “coached”, and they just do better in life and at work because of those younger experiences. They also learn to play on teams and […]

Girl Talk: Leaving Your Lover

The Best Breakup Scene Ever…… My Facebook pals help me with my blog topics on occasion. Funny thing is, many of my Facebook friends I’ve never met in person, but we talk frequently on Facebook. I love that. I ran into one of them last night at Starbucks. “I know you,” I said. I had […]

Girl Talk: Candy Kisses

“Women look like giant pieces of candy walking around.” a guy friend of mine said. I laughed….because I always laugh at something out of the ordinary. He followed up with something about how most women might take offense at that. Well, he’s probably right, but I really think he has a point. What is candy […]

Spotting Emotional Unavailability

A friend of mine texted me yesterday…”New blog topic: how to identify when someone is emotionally unavailable.” How the hell would I know? That’s the type I fall in love with over and over again. I texted back, “Haha…I would have to figure it out before I wrote it. Well, maybe I see if they […]
