Side-Eye Susan photo credit: Me I've discovered that I'm the type of woman that can tell in two dates if there is hope of a future date. That, along with the ability to fold a fitted sheet appear to be my super powers. I had two dates this weekend, with the same guy. We'll call… Continue reading Two dates, an Athiest & a Magician
I woke up with a serious bee in my bonnet today. It’s Valentine’s Day again and I 👏🏼 Hate 👏🏼 It👏🏼!! It’s the dumbest holiday if you’re single. It’s the sweetest holiday if you’re happily in love. Bleh!! Gross! Gag me with a chocolate spoon. I’ve been rather venomous on social media today, spewing my… Continue reading F¥cking Valentine’s Day
That's all dating is, really...finding two people who want to stick their neck out and see if there might be a match. I've been getting a few messages wondering how the second date with Car Guy went.

Every year in my life has a theme or a motto. 2016 was Demolish. My world was shattered and all that I knew to be safe and whole was destroyed. 2017 was Renew. I grew, I grieved, I started a blog. I got my feet underneath me again. 2018 was Shenanigans. I started a couple… Continue reading Surrender
While I don't wish divorce upon my worst enemy, the national average tells us that it's going to happen to many of us.
