The Other Woman: Part 4 – He Goes to Jail & I’m Home in Tears

Are you all caught up? Quick recap… dating a guy I knew from high school who lives in New York. We’ve now been dating a little over 3 months. Red flags everywhere, but love is blind and he’s amazingly good at turning red flag moments into me thinking I’m crazy. Speaking of crazy he has a stalker, still talks to his ex-fiancé (“A”) and I found a video of him declaring his love for his ex-gf (“B,” who was the reason he didn’t get married) on his iPad. Judge all you want. Even reading this for spelling errors I feel …

Soundtrack to My Life – July! You’ll Be Okay, Bartender & Problem

If you’ve been following me on Twitter and been reading my blog, you know that the last month has been a doozy (I partly blame Mercury being in retrograde!) Music is really the only thing getting me through. I’ve been rockin’ everything from slow lyrical songs to country drinking songs to songs you should be spinning too and they have ALL helped. I’ve probably listened to this song 50 times in the last week. It’s been a lifesaver and a great reminder that I’m going to get over this bullshit and be okay. You know how I keep saying I’m …

The Other Woman: Part 3 – Red Flags Everywhere… I Find a Condom Wrapper That Isn’t Mine!

To recap… I’m dating a guy a new from high school who lives in New York. We’ve now been dating for 3 months. Everything so far is going well. Great conversations, great visits, great sex. But, I’m starting to see red flags and he now has a stalker. Here are parts 1 & 2 for you to catch up on if you need to! I left my last trip to New York feeling good about our week together. LDC and I continue doing what we do… Talking a ton throughout the week and then only touching base on the weekends. …

The Other Woman: Part 2 – Introducing the Stalker

Ok, to recap – I’m dating a guy I knew from high school who lives in New York (LDC). Great 1st weekend together – happy, happy. Enter… THE STALKER. At least that’s what he called her. We’ll call her Stalker Sarah. She is crazy pants, but she’s a woman scorned. I can’t totally blame her. LDC is back from Mexico and still acting weird. A week later he finally comes clean… while he was in Mexico he started getting a ton of texts from random numbers from a girl claiming to be pregnant with his baby. Now, he did tell …

The Other Woman – Part 1

I am currently living in a fucking lifetime movie. Yes, the bad, but addicting kind that runs on a Saturday night with a B-list actress and her crazy lying boyfriend. This story is long*, complicated and super twisted, so sit back and take it all in. *Like I said, it’s LONG so it’ll be broken up into a few installments that will be posted weekly. Writing this in one sitting is just emotionally too tolling right now.  —————————- And just when you think you’ve experienced it all, something blindsides you like never before. Many of you know that I started …

For The Love of Lube!

If you follow me on Twitter you know that I have a new love… and it goes by the name of Lube. Yes, LUBE. As you guys know, I’m a safety girl all the way. Recently I started following Lucky Bloke: Condoms (@TheLuckyBloke) on Twitter and they have changed my sex life! In past posts I’ve written that I’m a fan of lube, but I had no idea what was really out there.  The last few years I had used a brand that you can pick up at your nearest drugstore, but let me tell you… Lucky Bloke’s lube and condom …

June Soundtrack to My Life! Simple Things, Believer, & Say it, Just Say it

I am SO sorry for the lack of blogging.  I was in early relationship bliss and then things got complicated and busy… now I’ve just been listening to music and contemplating my life on a hourly basis.  Without further ado, this is what I’m jamming to this month.  I’ve got three ditties for you… lemme know what you think!  They all represent how I’m feeling right now – hence the soundtrack to my life. This song is everything to me right now. My pick me up… Just Say it. IT. Working on a few blogs now about life, lube, and …

May Soundtrack to My Life! 6’2 and I Wanna Get Better

What? It’s already May? How the hell did that happen? Two songs for you this month that I’m loving. 6’2 by Marie Miller – single ladies, this song is for you.  I LOVE IT. I Wanna Get Better by the Bleachers is my current jam.  Great driving song and I love the video! Happy May! (New blogs coming soon! Sorry for the delay!)

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 …

Soundtrack to My Life: Not a Bad Thing & Sleeping With a Friend

Spring is almost here! When the sun comes out, the skin does too… I remember being in college and one of my guy friends told me that Spring semester was the best time of the year because all of the girls looked “hot” again.  So, get a spray tan, throw on a maxi or board shorts and some flip flops start flirting! Two songs I’m loving right now… Not a Bad Thing by Justin Timberlake Sleeping with a Friend by Neon Trees Happy Spring!

Setting Up Your Online Date… Yes or No?

The last few dates I’ve been on haven’t been horrible, but also haven’t been great. I think if you’ve been dating as long as I have you can tell after an hour or so with someone if you want to spend more time with them AND if you have any physical chemistry. The last date I went on was a couple of weeks ago.  REALLY nice guy. He’s a furniture designer, 40, owns a home, totally has his shit together and is engaging, but after 90 minutes with him I felt like I was either on a new business meeting …
