Liars and Cheaters in the Dating World and Why (Sometimes) Telling the Truth Doesn’t Work

You may think I’m crazy for this but I truly think that this is the case. Well, I think it’s the case if you’re an attractive person (male or female). In the summer, especially, I have to tell men that I am not interested in dating. In addition to that, however, I tell them thingsContinue reading “Liars and Cheaters in the Dating World and Why (Sometimes) Telling the Truth Doesn’t Work”

Dating a Person with a Diagnosed Mental Illness, Could You Do It? Should You Do It?

As I point out often, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2009 after being put into an institution for a short time. One thing I have always stressed to people that were interested in me since I was 20 (I’m 40 now) is that I take medication. When I received my first diagnosis ofContinue reading “Dating a Person with a Diagnosed Mental Illness, Could You Do It? Should You Do It?”

“You’re So Pretty…. Why Are You Single?”

I get this question all the time and, being the honest person that I am, I always let people know that looks have nothing to do with the quality of the woman you’re interested in.  I know, in society, men go for the women with the looks.  What does it usually get them in theContinue reading ““You’re So Pretty….

Maybe I’m NOT that Great of a Catch!

So I left Ok Cupid alone for a while and decided late last week to go ahead and try Plenty of Fish.  Would you like to hear about THAT experience?

Online Dating – Let’s Be Honest….

GAWD!!!!! About six months ago, I went on OK Cupid to be nosy. My boss was on there and told me that it was pretty nice and she met a lot of nice guys. I went more to observe. I like to observe people. I do that a lot on Facebook too so this wasn’tContinue reading “Online Dating – Let’s Be Honest….”

Recycling Relationships – Why We Do It?

    I can tell you guys that I know a lot about this topic.  Why?  Because I am so guilty of it.  I really am and I can admit it with no problem at all.  Admitting that you do something that is considered “stupid” by society is not a sin.  Many people do aContinue reading “Recycling Relationships – Why We Do It?”

Words With…..Err….Friends?

You know….playing games with people on the internet was something I used to do all the time.  I used to LOVE playing Mafia Wars, Sorority Wars (or whatever it was called), Farmville, etc.  Those were games I loved.  And then they came out with Words with Friends. When Words with Friends came out, I wasContinue reading “Words With…..Err….Friends?”

Good Moms

Well, it’s almost Mother’s Day and I know people like to celebrate the moms and all that good stuff (I STARTED writing this before Mother’s Day and it is now 5/19, yes, I know I suck at this). It’s hard being a good mom sometimes. Great moms make it look easy but it’s really hardContinue reading “Good Moms”
