It’s been a year…

It’s been a year since I posted… Almost to the day. For some reason summers make me want to write. What have I been up to in the last year? LOTS and 98% doesn’t include dating or sex (which might sound depressing but, let me explain). Late last year the stress of my job was taking a toll on my life. (I have a pretty high profile, intense job.) I started 2016 with an amazing trip in Southeast Asia and then my work took my around the world. From January to November I had logged more than 75,000 miles in …

A Little Update…

As most of you have noticed, I haven’t blogged in some time.  There are a few reasons for that… 1. I’ve had my own company for 7 years. These years were some of the best and worst years of my life. Starting a company in a recession wasn’t easy. My business plan consisted of “don’t get kicked out of your apartment. You’re too old to live with your mom.” Thankfully, my business was successful and every year I grew professionally and personally. At the beginning of 2015 a job offer landed in my lap that was too good to pass …

Is Love In My Cards?

Unfortunately, the answer seems to be “not right now.” But, there are a lot of amazing things coming my way! My love life has been on the rocks the last year so I thought it might be a good idea to see if the stars/cards had anything to say about it. Note: I love astrology (get better soon Susan Miller!) and have had several psychic readings. With that being said, I do not sign important documents during retrograde, but I also take everything with a grain of salt. We have this little thing in life called FREE WILL that changes …

March Soundtrack! Only One and FourFiveSeconds

Ok, so I’m torn… I can’t stand Kanye, but I also can’t deny that every time one of his new songs come on I perk up, turn the radio up and sing along. And, who doesn’t love Gold Digger? So, this month I bring you songs I love from someone I don’t. It happens. I do however love Paul McCartney and Rhianna, so there’s that! Btw, can someone please tell me what that woman is yelling about when Kanye is singing?? Happy March people! For those of you anywhere but LA I hope Spring is coming soon!

I Refuse To Believe I’m Undateable – Second City Show Review!

Online dating blows. Lets be real, we’re all looking for love in all the wrong places. Enter LA’s Second City sketch called Undateable and you’ll realize there really is someone for everyone. Recently a fellow online dating girlfriend and I went to check this show out. What a night! It went a little something like this: 7pm – Get cute, pick up friend and explain the premise of the show to her on the way there. Every Friday night at 9pm for the last year Second City has been performing their show, Undateable. 38 “Undateable” profiles were placed on OkCupid. …

You’re 35! Are You Freezing Your Eggs? My Response to Everyone Who Asks…

When you’re in your 20s all people ask you is… “when are you getting married?” When you enter your 30s it’s “when are you having kids?” When you hit 35 and you haven’t done either of things because you either don’t want to or it just hasn’t been in your cards yet (rude), people start asking you “are you freezing your eggs?” Seriously. I’ve gotten this question several times in the last few months. And, because I have a blog and some awesomely dedicated readers, I thought I would answer this question for everyone to read. So, am I freezing …

February Soundtrack – Love Songs and Songs to Love

It’s the month of love and national Single’s Day! My gift to you are a few tunes I’m loving right now. Loving this song and can’t wait to see 50 Shades of Grey this weekend! Perfect for getting busy… with someone or solo! I’m obsessed with this guy… I hope 2015 is the year of James Bay. Honorable mention this month goes to this GORGEOUS love song by Ella Henderson… “I feel like I’m ready for love…” Some others I’m loving: Home/Dirty Paws by the Gardiner Sisters I See Fire by Ed Sheeran Wild Ones by Bahari My sexy time …

How My Year Has Started Off in the Online Dating World…

Are men just getting more bold or do they literally just not give a fuck about anything? Yes, this is the only thought going through my mind as I scan my inbox on my online dating apps… Here are a few gems to give you an idea. Lets start with Bryan (with a Y): Bryan is 37 and his profile only reads “no hook ups please.” So, my first thought is FINALLY someone who doesn’t JUST want to sleep with me. WOO HOO! Then, we had this conversation… 12-27-14 Me: H! Just wanted to say hi. How were the holidays? …

New Year, New Soundtrack… And Up We Go!

New year, new soundtrack… music is what I turn to when I want to dance, cry, scream, chill, clean, make-out or just drive.  Here are a few new jams to get your year started right. WORD. Something is got to give Everyone here is ready to go It’s been a hard year with nothing to show From down this road It’s only on we go, on we go Everyone here is ready to go It’s been a hard year, and I only know From down this low It’s only up we go, up we go And who doesn’t love cut …

No, no, no… That Did NOT Just Happen!

Sometimes the most embarrassing thing ever happens to you and you need to tell everyone about it… In my year of extreme rejection (cheating boyfriend, the “I’m just not that into” text, etc.) you just need to put on your big girl panties and deal. But, this can’t happen before one more mortifying thing happens to you. It’s like the nail in the coffin of 2014. My brother-in-law’s best friend (Bob) is great. He’s cute, successful and a total catch. He’ll be a great husband and an even better father. Now that we’re older, my entire family is convinced that …

Online Dating… Are We All Just Really Window Shopping?

Now that I’m back at it in the online dating world, I’ve started taking a closer look at my online dating patterns. Is it just the holiday months that make me feel like online dating is similar to window shopping or is that really what we’re all doing? I’ve always said I think it’s hard to date around the holidays. People are feeling lonely, physically cold, frustrated that they are ending their year alone, but aren’t ready to jump into anything serious. Who wants to buy a gift for someone they’ve been dating for 2 weeks? So, I don’t know …
