Rear view reflections

I have a few friends who are in the trenches right now. Experiencing betrayal on the most intimate level and the emotional roller coasters are really rough. While it's hard to watch your friends be in the depths of despair and wrought with trauma, I also know there is a light at the end of… Continue reading Rear view reflections

The Next Chapter

I still have my apartment- my lease isn’t up until the end of the year, but I’d rather spend every night with him. It’s that great. This… Continue reading The Next Chapter

This is going to be gross

Screenshot from https://pin.it/3iTYV25 on Pinterest I warned you. This is going to be a gag-fest if you’re single and salty. Maybe that should have been my monicker instead of Single & Selfish.

Two dates, an Athiest & a Magician

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

Sticking your neck out

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. It wasn't great. I think what I took away from that date was something that Maya Angelou once… Continue reading Sticking your neck out

Here’s the thing…Dating, Man.

A few little things….
