The Economics of Dating – How the Pill Ruined My Chances of Getting Married by 30

My lovely twitter friend, Miss @MarnaP, sent me this article yesterday. I think it’s something EVERY woman between the ages of 14-60 needs to watch (guys should watch it too).  Once you watch it, you need to talk about, tell your friends and make sure they all watch it.  It’s FASCINATING.   So, sit back at your desk and take the next 9 minutes to be educated. Did you watch the whole thing, did you? Ok, now we can talk. When I was a pre-teen getting the sex talk from my mom, she insinuated/made us believe that she waited until …

What’s Up With The Married Men on Tinder?

Yes, I know married men are all over the online dating scene, but is it me or are they just getting more and more open about the fact that they are married and looking for a fuck buddy more than ever before? A few weeks ago my girlfriend texted me and said, “OMG this married guy just asked me out on Tinder” and she sent me a screengrab.  I was playing around on Tinder anyways and he popped on my screen.  I, of course, swiped right to see if he was just down for anyone.  Of course, we matched instantly. …

Yet Another Reason We Are Single… The Millennial Man

An interesting article came out this week about the Millennial Man – or at least what he is now.  Ladies, if they want to pirate cable and live with their parents, they are probably not going to throw down $100 for a nice dinner date.  (Hmmm… maybe this is why I keep getting stuck with the bar bill?) Per this article The Millennial Male Is Not Who You Think He Is (via AdWeek) us ladies and our fab gay counterparts have some serious issues to contend with…  Here are a few fun facts: Collectively, they carry $1 trillion in student loans. …

It’s National Singles Week! My Top 10 Benefits of Being Single

It’s National Single’s Week  (because, you know, we need to be reminded we’re single every once in a while!).  While most of the time I think being single kinda sucks, sometimes you just can’t help but look at the pros.  I had dinner with some fellow kick ass singletons last night and we came up with our top ten benefits of being single. 1. The cold side of the bed and sleeping sideways.  During those hot summer months (and almost year round in Los Angeles), I get hot.  When you’re single and you get hot you can just scoot on …

MTV Joins The Dating Game!

Since the first season of the Real World (aka. Real World: New York) launched in the spring of 1992, who hasn’t either wanted to or actually sent in a video applying to be on the latest season?  I know I wanted to live with 6 strangers in a loft, on a pier, or even in a tree house if I was chosen.  Sadly, I wasn’t, but the Real World was just the beginning of the addictive reality TV MTV has given us over the years. This year, MTV is jumping on the dating game train.  This isn’t like their other …

Don’t Marry Someone Until You See Them REALLY Sick

A couple of weeks ago I got sick (hence the new blogs and no dates!).  I don’t mean “I had a cold” sick.  I mean doctor’s offices and IV’s kind-of sick.  Now, when I do something I don’t do it half ass and that is true with everything – including getting sick.  In college a cold was going around and I got viral pneumonia.  In my twenties I was working too many hours, was around too many germy people and ended up getting a cold which lead to bronchitis which lead to having to have my tonsils out at 26. …

Online Dating GEMS – Part II (Real Emails From Real Morons)

And the insanely weird, awkward, bizarre and boring online dating emails continue from OkCupid.  Gems, I tell you… GEMS. Here are some of my recent favs (posted as I received them… errors and all!): 21-yr-old latin lover: Hi how are you? 🙂  I wouldn’t like to sound, or be disrespectful by asking this, but would you consider dating or be intimate with someone younger than you? Don’t get me wrong for this, and if I offend you in any way please forgive, I didnt mean to disrespected you, or give you the wrong idea.  I also know what I’m asking for, …

Online Dating Email GEMS – Really, guys? This is the best you can do?

Over the past few weeks I have been getting the weirdest “hello” emails on a couple of online dating sites.  Here are a few gems for you to enjoy…  (And, I’m not even going to go into who they are coming from… just think NOT MY CUP OF TEA.)  (This is how I look every time I log in. Guys, you’re killing me.) Guy 1: hello how aRE YOU (you all know I’m the grammar police!) Guy 2: I think you’re super attractive and I would meet you one on one.. no funny business. Just to gtown adults that ate looking for …

It’s a Condom Kinda World People!

Fun fact… I went on the Pill when I was 15. Not because I was sexually active, but because I had ovarian cysts.  Now, did being on the Pill make me one of those slutty teenagers who then thought it was okay to have sex with the entire soccer team (note, not football team. Our men’s soccer team was insanely hot.)?  No.  I waited until my college years to do the horizontal mambo and have always been a safety girl.  Even when I was on the Pill I made my boyfriends use condoms and that was after I made them …
