There is always that one guy in your journey of online dating that turns out completely different than you expect. When I met him on the latest site I tried, conversation flowed like water. It was effortless and comfortable. He was an aspiring writer like I was. He was writing a mystery at the time. […]
I’ve spent the month talking to a new guy. I thought he was genuine and funny. I couldn’t wait to meet him, but for whatever reason, our schedules didn’t really sync up until Father’s Day. The precious free moment for both of us finally came. So, we decided to meet in the chill little island […]
It was a typical Saturday morning. I was running with O to Target to buy yet another birthday present for one of her friends. Target is my shop of choice for birthday gifts. Walking into the store, I saw him and his smile met mine. It’s unusual for me to even notice anyone in […]

I haven’t shared much about my dating life lately. I finally dumped Mr. On-Again Off-Again. It’s off again for good.
