OK, let’s face it: exes shape our future relationships. Each relationship, and thus each ex, teaches us something different, not only about ourselves, but about the opposite sex and relationships in general.. We learn what qualities we like and which we are willing to cope with (with the right person). We learn how much of ourselves we are willing to sacrifice, if at all, to be in a relationship with this person. I’ve been thinking…"Best Thing I Never Had"
This single, Boston girl has been what is known as a “serial dater” for quite a while now and to be honest, it’s getting old! Sure, I’m having fun and meeting lots of new people, but it’s all short-term. Lately, my dating life goes as follows: meet and have a first date, it goes great, there is some texting and possibly a phone call of two afterwards, and about half the time a second date follows.…"When Serial Becomes Stale"
Don’t always expect me to call you or text you first ALL THE TIME. Don’t expect that I’m going to make all of the plans, all of the time. Don’t convince yourself that I’ll chase you, because I won’t. Don’t take me for granted because I’ll walk away. Don’t mistake my sweetness and think it means I’m a push over or I will push you over! Don’t act like Paul Revere…if you want a midnight…"Don’t…"
Just when I think I’ve heard everything, some “Prince Charming” comes along and says something to top the list! Guys, do you seriously think this crap works on us? To spare some poor, unfortunate soul the social embarassment that should rightfully follow saying something utterly stupid, here’s my top 10 list (in no particular order of ranking): 1) My friend (insert name) should hook up with you (guys, if we’re dating YOU we don’t want…"10 Things Guys Should Never Say"
My best friend and I are avid readers of all of the major style magazine publications. Every issue seems to be chalk full of “fabulous” ways to stir things up in the bedroom. Every month we are laughing and rolling our eyes at the tameness of these so-called sexy thrills. Are they serious? Are these PG-13 equivalent suggests really what the writers and editors consider to be bold in the bedroom? Well, if that’s the case then hold on to…"50 Sultry Summer Nights"
Southern gentlemen. You know the kind. Those strong, hospitable, well dressed, handsome men who always open doors for ladies, listen intently while looking into your eyes, flirt shamelessly and are always respectful. We’ve seen them in movies, but do they really exist? Absolutely! I had the pleasure of spending time with a tried and true Southern gentleman recently. He rushed to open every door for me, showered me with polite compliments, truly listened when I spoke, and not only made sure that…"The Truth About Southern Hospitality"
Double standards. They happen everywhere, everyday in almost every situation. So, why then, does it surprise me that there is still a double standard that exists regarding single women and dating? Why is it that society finds it perfectly acceptable, and almost expected, that men date multiple women at once and pass no judgement on the practice of serial dating? Yet when the tables are turned and the same behavior is exhibited by a…"If the Stiletto Fits…"
When you begin dating someone there are bound to be lots of firsts– the first date, the first touch, the first kiss… Lately, I’ve had some great, and some not so great, first dates. Let’s face it, first dates are like a job interview. You spend all week in your closet (or your favorite store) coming up with the “perfect” outfit. When D-day finally arrives, you spend forever shaving, primping, curling and polishing making sure…"Firsts"
We’ve all seen the commercials, how can you miss them! We are constantly assaulted through every available media outlet with ads for Match.com, eHarmony and Chemistry.com (just to name a few), all claiming that their service will result in you finding your soul mate. One lonely weekend, curiosity got the better of me and I started poking around on Match.com. Like most of these online dating services, there is only so much you can do for free. You…"Adventures in Online Dating"
Oh, the pressure of the very first blog post! This is almost as bad as keeping the conversation going on a first date. Perhaps I should start with a short introduction to break the ice. Yes, as the blog title suggests, I’m a single girl living in Boston. I won’t disclose my age (and you should never ask a woman her age anyway, it’s just poor manners), but I will say that I am old enough to know better and…"So here I blog…"
