The Guy Who Didn’t Think He Was Bi

WHY? WHY does shit like this keep happening to me? I just want to find a normal guy to date, fall in love with, marry and have babies with. Is that too much to ask? Apparently, yes. Recently I was matched up with a cute brunette on Tinder. His profile said he was 33 and newly single. We’ll call him BG for BI GUY. Here’s our conversation: Me: Happy Sunday! Do anything fun this weekend? BG: Crazy Saturday, lazy Sunday. You? Chat, chat, chat. Me: So, how’s Tinder treating you so far? BG: Just got it. Woke up this morning …

Soundtrack to My Life – Drink You Away and All That I Want

It’s that time of the month again where I post some of my favorite jams.  I believe that we all have a soundtrack to our lives and listen to specific music because it’s what we need in our lives at that moment.  Sometimes you need a dance party, sometimes you need an anthem, sometimes you need to wallow.  Either way, there is always a song for you! This month I’m digging these two ditties. I dated someone recently. I made him dinner, he stayed the night and I never heard from him again. I’ve since been drinking him away. Fucker. …

Online Dating Gems – OkCupid Edition

I’ve written a couple posts about hilarious, rude, and weird messages I have gotten on online dating sites.  These gems come from OkCupid.  I can’t… really. How do I even respond to these? This is totally what I look like every time I get a message. Guy 1: “You are a great kisser and have a mouth like a trucker. That’s enough for me. What two wishes can I grant you?” Yes, I do say that I swear a lot and that people have said I’m a good kisser on my profile, but really? WTF? Guy 2: “Hi.. Nice profile. …

Texting and Dating… OVER IT!

If you follow me on Twitter (my social media lifeline @MyLifeOnMatch), you know that I’m over texting and dating.   A few things to get off my chest… 1. Guys, don’t send a “Thanks for the fun date! Can’t wait to do it again!” text unless you mean it.  Otherwise, that just makes you an asshole when you think you’re being a nice guy. Just don’t send anything at all and we’ll get the idea pretty damn quick that you weren’t into us. 2. If you’re dating someone (more than one date) and they text you, fucking reply. Otherwise we …

Your Profile is Great! Sorry No One Wants to Date You!

If you follow me on twitter, you’ve seen my tweets about eHarmony.  I’ve always been a fan of the site.  They have great customer service, an good interface, great PR people, etc. but I have NEVER had any luck with them.  I decided to give them one last try when a good girlfriend of mine who had never online dated before went on eHarmony, got matched on the second day with a cute guy (and her only online date ever) and married him 5 months later. So, I joined with a 6-month subscription hoping for the best.  Over the last …

Soundtrack to My Life – One Life & Compass

For some reason I’m feeling super sentimental and emotional this month.  Not sure what it is… the holidays around the corner? Mercury is finally heading out of retrograde? But, either way, I’ve been digging some mellower music this month. I started listening to this song last month and have had it on repeat ever since… This song popped up in my car when I was listening to my iPod on shuffle. Who doesn’t love some James Morrison? BTW, if you haven’t seen About Time yet, run (don’t walk) to the theaters. Amazing date night movie (I went with some girlfriends) …

My Encounter With An Uncircumcised Penis…

It went something like this… Luc (named change to protect the uncircumcised) and I had been dating a couple of weeks and were taking things slow. After our first date, I learned he was born in England and moved around a lot as a child. About a week into dating, I was home watching a rerun of “Sex and the City” on the Style Network (RIP) and saw the episode when Charlotte was dating a guy who was uncircumcised. I called my girlfriend immediately. Me: “Oh my God. I’m now freaking out. I have a feeling Luc isn’t circumcised.” Her: “So? It’s not …

Dating: A New Customer Acquisition Tool?

I’m well aware that a lot of people are in sales, but this is the second time in the last few months that someone has turned our date into a new customer acquisition tool. A couple of weeks ago I went out with real estate guy (we’ll call him REG).  REG was nice, bald (not my type, but I’m trying to expand my dating horizons!), 34, and was a real estate agent with his own company.  I know this because we had a couple of mutual friends and I googled him beforehand (btw, that’s a whole other post coming!).  REG …

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. …

Soundtrack To My Life… Got a Little Drunk Last Night

I’ve been rockin’ country this month. I don’t know why I like this song so much, but it’s been on repeat for a couple weeks now. We’ve all been there, except I’m normally drunk text.  Yes, I’m THAT girl. But, really guys, what the eff is up with the flip phone and pay phone in this video?? This song is dedicated to the Chef. STOP CALLING ME. IT’S OVER! Have a great weekend! I have a couple great date updates for you… will post them next week!

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 …
