Dating

Shh! We’re on a make-out!

Date numéro trois = très success!

My français = très bon!

Oh, hi! So Philly Cheese Steak (btw, I’m apparently not the first person who’s called him this) and I went on our third date last night. Our second date, last Friday, was another winner. We went for Thai food at my fave place, followed by a walk along the canal, and capped things off with BeaverTails by the lake. I think most of you know by now I’m not being dirty when I say that. They’re actual things you can eat. Heavenly, I tell you.

Cupid, draw back your bow….

Well, my friends, I’ve officially deleted my Tinder profile. Yes. It’s true. I’ll let you all digest that for a moment.

Don’t fret, though, because I haven’t given up on the dating scene altogether. I’m just exploring other options. My latest exploration…OkCupid. It’s an app that has the swipe left or right feature as well, but this one encourages more in-depth bios, and it allows all users to send each other messages. Essentially, you message anyone who tickles your fancy.

In other words, you end up with eleventy billion messages from weirdos you want nothing to do with. Now, since I’m a generous person, I’ve decided to share some of those conversation starters with you. The magnificent Maggie Wells, author extraordinaire, will be providing her always-entertaining commentary. Poor guys never stood a chance. Ready? Here we go!

Maggie’s kicking off a new series in October featuring hot single dads. Need I say more? Lucky for us, we get a sneak-peek at the cover for the first book in her series. Which is coming right up…after a little game! I asked Maggie to name her dream play date partner and what they like to play. She was all goody-goody and chose her hubby. 😉

Online Dating 101 – Lesson One

Hello, all you beautiful people! Welcome to the first edition of my new weekly segment that delves into the world of online dating. I call it ‘Online Dating 101.’ Inspired, I know. Some of what I’ll be sharing was previously posted on my old blog, but, since I’m knee-deep in the online dating world again, I figured I’d bring it back!

In the coming weeks, you will discover all the dos and don’ts of the internet dating world. You will learn how to decode ‘man speak.’ You will hear hilarious and horrifying tales of dates gone wrong and dates that never made it past ‘hello.’ And, most importantly, you will be given all the tools you need to get out there and find Mr. Right! So, without further ado, let’s begin….

Buckle up your seatbelts, boys, ’cause I am back out there! I’ve reentered the dating arena! As most of you know, my ten-month relationship with a certain fella ended back in the summer. I went through my wallowing phase and lived on ice cream for a couple days, but I soon realized that it was for the best. He was wonderful in many ways, but he wasn’t the one.
