first post of 2013

Happy New Year!  Is that old yet?  Yes?  OK, sorry. I know I’ve been lax about posting, but really for a while there was nothing worth writing about.  I didn’t really want to talk about horrible stuff going on around the world.  My Christmas in Florida was relatively uneventful, though quite lovely.  My New Year’s …

one down, one still to go…in a few days

So, it’s 8PM on Saturday night and here I am typing out a blog post instead of meeting a hot guy for drinks.  Why?  Because Saturday’s double-header got “rained out” after the first game.  The hot guy had to postpone our date until Tuesday night. Well, I may as well get you up-to-date with Date …

dating – the good, the bad, and the ugly

It’s more difficult to find things to blog about when things are going well.  We can all go on ad nauseam about what’s wrong with our lives, how our families are driving us up the wall, how we aren’t being appreciated at work, how last night’s date was the worst ever, how we had the …

flutter (that’s my heart)

So, it has finally happened.  Something I haven’t felt in a long, long time.  Three years to be exact.  I’m majorly “in like.” With St. Elmo.  When I blogged about our very first date, it seemed so unlikely that we would get to this point.  We had our second date about a month and half …

miss-matched and now un-matched

I cancelled my Match membership.  Well, I let it expire without renewal.  It just wasn’t giving me the connections I’d hoped (though I am still in contact with one guy from it, St. Elmo).  And I didn’t feel like spending the money for 3 or 6 months more.  I’d rather spend the money elsewhere.  So …

my latest dating adventures

I met a guy last night for drinks.  He’s a Match guy.  I winked at him, he winked and emailed back.  We made plans to meet after a couple back and forth emails.  I’m not sure what I should nickname him, so I’ll just stick with Mr. Staten Island, because that’s where he lives.  He …

just smile, smile, smile, be happy

Before online dating, how did I meet all the guys I dated?  When I was out drunk at bars?  Yes, yes, and hell yes.  Introduced through friends?  Yes.  On the subway (or in my case the London Underground)?  Yes.  During a snowball fight?  Yes.  At a party?  Yes.  At work?  Mayyyyyybbbbeeeee (I’m neither confirming nor …

re-establishing my requirements

What are your priorities in seeking a potential mate? Is your focus on looks?  Does power and wealth drive the attraction?  Is intelligence and a *beautiful mind* your #1 turn on?  Does compassion and altruism melt your heart?  Does passion for the arts rate above all?  Can someone win you over with wit and humor?  …

date with bachelor #2 post-mortem

We’ll call him St. Elmo because he shares the same first name with one of its stars and St. Elmo’s Fire is a kick ass movie. I met St. Elmo outside Bryant Park at 6:30PM.  He was there first and luckily when I walked up to the meeting point, he was able to recognize me as I …
