Knocked Down But Not KO


It has taken me almost 40 years to tell my story. Wow, time flies. I’m old! But I wasn’t when I married straight out of college. My ex moved to the west coast during our engagement (while I finished my last semester) for a job.
I flew out with my mother to find an apartment during [...]

I Should Have Listened to Milicia :(


Milicia warned me about sexting. I should have listened. A ‘pretend’ family friend (someone who had hurt me many times in the past) experienced a tragic death of a family member. He turned to drugs and alcohol and would call me in the middle of night, telling me how much he wanted to be with [...]

I Feel Nothing

It’s not so bad. It doesn’t hurt. It’s confusing. It doesn’t make sense. But hurt? No. Some people were meant to be solo and I appear to be one of them.

I Feel Movement


I am looking forward to being able to report something nice about a man in my life.
Most recently, I was wooed by a man who repeatedly told me I turned him on when he thought about me, heard my voice, or saw my picture.
Literally no cigar.
Many byes.  The last time I talked to him [...]

Stay Tuned


I’m finishing up some projects and can’t tell a tale at this time — there’s no rush.
Dancing in the Moonlight– in fact a full moon tomorrow (11-2-09)

Friend with NO BENEFITS


So once again my friend with benefits (that I never saw) has let me down. Every time I think the “relationship” is over — he calls or texts sweet talk (ok… lies).
HE: No one else does it for me
ME: You’re giving me a line
HE: No — I wish it WAS a line — but it’s [...]

I Met a New Man, Too.


Kind of bizarre situation…. more later. Not surprised about it being bizarre? Me neither… that’s what concerns me.

At Least 5 Red Flags (probably more)


I was walking on the beach at the end of a typical day. I love the beach, seashells and sunsets. 
I certainly don’t like what the beach does to my hair — enter the perks of the job. Good blows on any given day/ 7 days a week.
I started talking to a man walking on the [...]

Attentive Man With Erectile Dysfunction


I met Peter, a doctor, through a friend of my father’s. He was charming. I asked my usual early relationship question, “Are you seeing anyone?” Peter said, “No — I was but it’s over.” I thought “WOW” — I finally got lucky.

First date Peter took me to his house at the beach — and afterwards [...]

Soon Came and Went


HE: You’re busy? Call me back.
ME: ring ring…. voicemail ….Hi, I’m returning your call….
He didn’t call me back.
3 weeks later…
HE TEXTS: I’ll call you this weekend
No phone call. Yeah, holiday weekend…. what does weekend mean?
Doesn’t matter. Soon was 6:20 PM tonight. Soon came and went. I gave up. I realized Mary was right — [...]
