Is “Hanging Out” the New Dating?

Last week The New York Times came out with an article called “The End of Courtship.”  It has since gone viral with feedback from both guys and girls and their take on the subject.  Since so many people asked me my thoughts on the subject, I thought I would throw in my 2 cents too. First off… the beginning of this article sets the tone for giving young people and online daters a bad name… MAYBE it was because they had met on OkCupid. But when the dark-eyed musician with artfully disheveled hair asked Shani Silver, a social media and …

F@!# You OkCupid. I Don’t Plan on Dying Alone…

For those millions of people who are on online dating sites, and for those lucky few who are also on OkCupid, did you get their insanely not funny, offensive email yesterday?  I did and I’m pissed.  Now, before you all tell me that I need to chill out and laugh this one-off, I tried.  You’ve seen the stuff I read and read the stuff I write.  I can totally take a joke… when it’s funny. Here’s the email… Subject: SCREENAME, Do you want to die alone?  (seriously, that was the title of their BLAST email) As we all know, the …

Gay Guys Will Marry Us All… And Make Our Boyfriends Jealous

Ok, they have a point… I think this might be one of the best viral videos ever.  How many times have you looked at your gay BFF and wished he would just marry you? “We will make your girlfriend a quiche in the morning?” “We will go to the gym with your girlfriend and get her pinkberry after as a reward.” *loves*

When is Honesty Your Best Policy? Online Dating Emails

I’m starting to think it might be me.  I keep having high hopes for OkCupid, but am continually SHOCKED with what I’m faced with. I’ve told you the stories about the guy who was 5’4, 49 and thought he was George Clooney and the guy who asked me how I felt about “bj’s on the first date.”  If they’re weird, they will find me on OkCupid.  Cupid needs to get his shit together! So, as I was “playing quickmatch” the other night (my version of angry birds!), I got a message from a new guy, we’ll call him Abe.  As …

World ROCKED In More Ways Than One – Part 2

In order to enjoy this story, please read part 1 first!  The gist is, the men I met in Nashville sucked.  Now, I’m not going to say all men in Nashville suck – just the ones I met.  The ones I wasn’t chatting with while I was drunk were lovely.  Lots of door opening and chivalry – something that is seriously dead in Los Angeles. Last week I was at work and where we had a musician booked.  Now, I was running around like a crazy person getting everyone else taken care of – I walked over, said hi, made …

World ROCKED – In More Ways Than One PART 1

Sorry, I haven’t been keeping everyone up-to-speed – I’ve been too busy LIVING!  This is a long story, so I’m going to break it up into two parts for your reading pleasure 🙂 For my birthday my college roommate and I went down to Nashville for Labor Day weekend.  I’ve always wanted to go, she used to live there, and the timing was right.  So, we hopped on a plane and spent the weekend eating friend chicken and bbq, drinking beer, and rockin’ out in country music heaven.  I really liked it there.  Not enough to move, but enough to …

I said Birthday SEX, not Birthday SEXT.

Many of you are curious to hear if my birthday wish came true and I got a little bday girl lovin’… unfortunately, the answer to that question is a big fat NO, but I did get a VERY random birthday SEXT. If you want to catch up on my history with sexting… read here and here.  I have finally come to grips that texting and sexting are the new way to communicate with someone you’re dating.  I jumped on the train and it’s not a bad ride. This year, I celebrated my birthday for a month.  Two weeks before and two …

Birthday Sex! The Soundtrack to my life continues…

As many of you know, my birthday is coming up.  So, this month I’m throwing out a hail mary and putting my intentions out into the world… my intention this month… I want to have birthday sex.  Doesn’t have to be on my birthday, just somewhere around there and I’ll consider the job well done. Now, for all those guys out there that think, “Oh, she’s a girl.  She can have sex whenever she wants.” I’ll tell you what any girl will tell you.  A. That isn’t true.  B. The guys that want to have sex with us are not …

The Olympics Have Begun! Cue Marvin Gaye’s Lets Get it On!

I’m sure many of you read the ah-mazing article in ESPN Magazine this month about the debauchery that takes place at Olympic Village.  If not, read up – it’s awesome.  Think of as Spring Break meets a Catholic School dance.  Horny, hot people being let out of their cages.  Over the next three weeks, more than 10,000 Olympians in their physical and sexual prime will be either celebrating their victories or drowning  in their losses and will need some tender lovin’ to get through it all. Think of it as Vegas… what happens in Olympic Village stays in Olympic Village …

“Bad Date App” to the Rescue!

My dating life is currently in shambles.  I’ve been on a lot of dates recently, but they have all been boring and not blog worthy.  Seriously, THAT boring.  The two most recent dates include a guy who was a month younger than me who told me he didn’t like to date “girls” older than him and then proceeded to check his OkCupid app as I was getting up to go to the restroom.  The other was a 38-year-old journalist who has an ivy league education and is 100% without a doubt the most pretentious man I’ve ever met in my …

The Benefits of Being a Single Bridesmaid! My Wedding Hook-up!

Over the last few months I have been chatting with a great guy.  Truly, he is great.  Not my type (at all!), but super fun to hang out with.  Emotionally, I’m there.  There, being that great place when you can talk freely, tell someone everything, and feel comfortable being your “real” self – the good, bad, and ugly.   But, that’s it… we’re friends that don’t do anything else. Well, when I have an emotional connection, I need that physical connection too.  I need someone to hug me, someone to kiss me, and someone to slam me against a wall …
