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 …

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 …

When Should He/She Meet Your Family? (Family Blind Dinner Date)

If you’re anything like me, you keep your new man/woman far away from your family as long as possible. Back in my 20s, I would date for someone for a month or so before introducing them to at least my sister and her husband. Now, that I’m in my 30s I’m pretty sure I would be okay with my potential soulmate not meeting my family until our rehearsal dinner.  Hey, if I’m happy they should just be happy for me, right? WRONG. Family and friends are really important. I’ve now learned that they are a good judge of character. Both …

Online Dating: New York Vs Los Angeles

I went to New York last month for both work and fun. The work part was crazy. I was booked solid, but I made time to finally to do all of the things in New York I had been wanting to do. I went to the 9/11 Memorial (amazing), checked out Grand Central Station, and even hit up a Broadway play solo. While I was there, I obviously needed to dabble in the online dating scene as well! I landed on a Tuesday night and opened up OkCupid on the cab ride over. I wanted to see what New York …

Every Woman Should Do a Boudoir Shoot… For Herself!

This has been a crazy summer… I went through a traumatic break-up, got rid of some toxic people in my life, and turned 35. Over the last couple of years I’ve realized that when you look good, you feel good and vice versa. I really took control of my health and fitness – stepping it up with boot camp and spinning, and eating healthy portions of good food (so I can make room for additional cocktails and bottles of wine). Due to these physical and emotional changes in my life, I’ve never looked or physically felt better naked. My boobs …

The Other Woman: Part 6 – 3 vs 1

(Yup, I’m still Kate Upton in all of this!) Are you caught up? Make sure to read Parts 1-5 first! The days after LDC’s world came crashing down on him were horrible for everyone involved. The girls and I talked a lot – comparing timelines, sending emails, etc. LDC was an obvious disaster and because he now had NO ONE to turn to, he turned to me. (Yet, another red flag… NO FRIENDS!) I know that our relationship was based on a friendship at the core, but come on… after cheating on someone and getting caught in the act (more …

The Other Woman: Part 5 – He Gets Caught

Another quick recap… I’m dating a guy I knew from high school who lives in New York. We’ve been dating for a few months now. Things started off amazing, but quickly I was inundated with red flags and manipulative excuses that made me feel like I was the one doing something wrong. This man I trusted so whole heartedly has a stalker, still talks to and has a very dependent emotional relationship with his ex-fiancé (aka “A”), and I’m pretty sure is still in love with his ex-gf (aka “B,” who is the reason his wedding got called off in …

Lets Talk About Sex, Baby…

I’ve talked about condoms on here before, but recently I was having a conversation with my girlfriends the other night at dinner and they all told me I needed a blog post about safe sex. A little background info… I’m 34. I’m been having sex for 14 years. I am the poster girl for safe sex. When I was 15 my great-uncle died from AIDS. When I was in college I TA’d a class on AIDS and its impact on society. I think those 2 things have made me be extra careful when I have sex. And yes, I’ve been …
