Dating Dont’s: Why It’s Okay To Choose Your Career Over Dating

Here is a confession — though I write a dating column, and have for quite some time, I’m not currently dating anyone right now. The last relationship I was in was about two years ago, and in the time between then and now, there have been plenty of dates, but nothing has stuck. Dating in general isn’t hard, but it takes work, energy, time that could be used doing hundreds of other things, like learning how to weave or baking all the bread you eat yourself, or creating a rooftop garden out of two sad planters and a handful of seeds. The way we choose to spend our time is our choice alone, not something to be judged, and not something that we should feel ashamed of. I know this. As a person who willfully chooses to spend many nights trawling beauty blogs on the internet and conducting deep, vast research on the best pink lipstick for my exact skin tone and coloring, I know that the way I spend my time could be spent better, but I know that the choice to spend time on really anything is mine alone. That’s why I’m perfectly comfortable coming out and saying it — right now, I’m choosing to focus on my career instead of finding a partner. Keep reading »

Are You Jealous?

Meet Cara Houiellebecq, a 33-year-old British mother of two who has a job that even makes us Frisky writers jealous: she’s a professional sex toy tester. She got into the biz via her friend, a rep for Ann Summers (a British lingerie and sex toy company), and began trying out toys for a blog. Now, companies like Lelo send her new toys every day to test and write about. She puts our goodie drawers to shame, amassing a collection of over 2,000 toys. According to Page Six, Houiellebecq earns a more-than-respectable $27,000 from the part-time gig — but what’s money when the job brings her 15 orgasms a week? [Page Six; Daily Mail UK]
