Love & Sex

Hold on to your hats, kids: The Bartender is the real deal.

Since I left town almost two weeks ago, he has texted occasionally – in other words, often enough to seem sweet, but not so frequently as to be annoying. Our iBanter has been as strong as it was in person, though… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

 

Despite taking a few weeks off, I still can’t quite muster any enthusiasm for the endless swiping of Tinder or the dead-end, one-way conversations of OKStupid, so this week, I resolved to be open to meeting someone in real life. That looked a little daunting, scheduled as I was to spend the… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

Greetings from the road! As I told you last week, I’ve been spending an unusual amount of time traveling for work, and with the holiday, I only ended up spending one night in my home city this week. Not great for my dating life, but then, lately, what is? I did, however, spend a good amount… READ MORE »

I’ve progressed from Tinder to text with a few promising specimens, but the schedule… READ MORE »

Allow me to explain. This Sunday, I had a full day that was unapologetically mine. Really, I had a whole weekend that was unapologetically mine, including a visit with El Guapo… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

Tough going out there in the dating pool this week: my OKStupid date bailed on me mere hours before game time (rude!), and speed-dating managed to sell out before I could secure a spot. Undeterred, I’m planning to attend this week – and purchase a ticket farther in advance! Meanwhile, I ended up spending a surprising amount… READ MORE »


Love & Sex

Another Friday, another first date. If only I seemed to be getting any better at these things.

I never heard from Peter after last week’s awkward, smoochless compliment-fest, which was fine by me – the poor guy seemed sweet, but he wasn’t even in the same county as my wheelhouse when I came… READ MORE »
