Another online dating misadventure. Love reading these because they make me feel like I’m not alone in this dating craziness.
Dating is such an enormous challenge for people coming out of bad, toxic relationships. We get signals crossed, often don’t pick up on subtle clues and, because we’re still a little flinchy, we try desperately to dodge any future problems by creating a set of dating rules or expectations, just so as not to get burned again. And while a certain amount of protection in the form of guidelines or boundaries is always a good thing, too many will insure that you pretty much never date again. here’s how to cut back on a few of those iron clad rules…
Don’t make assumptions about people before you know them: My mother used to say, Believe none of what you hear and only half of what you see. And that especially goes for dating. Dating between two healthy individuals is tricky, tricky, tricky, but for those who come from abusive or…

It happens all too often that we get so caught up in what happens in everyday life that we forget what we have, where we came from and where we are now. Ill be the first to admit the day to day life struggles of balancing my family needs, idiots at work (putting it mildly), … Continue reading Gratitude
Click bait titles will only get you so far. To really reel in good readers you need to work hard on presenting the right content.
It all depends on the type of blog you run. If you own a personal blog like I do, I just post all things related to me like poetry, short stories and some blogging related articles from my experience. Good content for me, is real writing. Heart felt words reach out better to people than faking emotions and pushing out content when I’m not ready to write. So my advice to all the personal bloggers out there is to write passionately and elaborately. Give them what they come to you for.
If you own a “how to” type of blog, they key is to write articles about things no one else is writing about. If your blog is about dog training don’t write the general…

With the holidays coming up, this might be the first family gathering your significant other will attend. Drunk grandpas, loud aunts, and unfiltered kids you have no idea what’s going to come out of their mouth next or what crazy thing they might do under the watch of a fresh pair of eyes. Will your significant other feel awkward and come off cold and distant? Will their vibrant personality rub some cousins the wrong way?
There are pros and cons of having a significant other meet family during a large gathering. Parties usually have various small groups or couples chatting together throughout the area which can help keep your SO from feeling too overwhelmed and you might be able to dodge any troublesome relatives. Even with a large group, the attention might not be all on your SO since parties are always a good time for people to catch up…

Donna Karan, Mayim Bialik and now Gabby Douglas. All well known respected women who decided to use their platform to victim shame. In each woman’s case they didn’t have much to say in the beginning about the Sexual Assault allegations being exposed at an alarming rate until much later when they opened their mouths and … Continue reading Women can be each other’s worst enemy
Funny and real blog on online dating
I follow a lot of blogs dedicated to dating in modern day with the help of technology based matchmaking platforms such as Tinder, OK Cupid, or any multitude of online dating sites. Bloggers are always writing about searching for their Baby/Boo/BAE in a sea of ghosting, cat fishing, and benching, trying to determine if they’re DTF, DDF, DTE, or if they have a GSOH IRL, then defending their said catch from thirsty THOTs while trying to establish if they’re FWB, NSA, or being slayed by DTR (translation below).

There is a common misconception that leaders and managers are interchangeable. If someone has a management title then most assume they are a leader as well. One reason for this is because they are referred to as being a part of the company’s “leadership” team. This belief couldn’t be further from the truth. Managers are … Continue reading Weekly Rant: Why Leaders Can Never Be Insecure
Q&A of all things people who have never been on a dating app might ask! Thanks so much to all those who participated and for reading!!!!
How long do you talk before meeting up?
Of course, all answers will vary here depending on the type of person you ask and the type of relationship they are seeking via these apps. I, personally, never liked to meet the same week that I started talking to someone so the sweet spot for me was around 10 days. This way I could find out what they did during the week (such as school or work) and also what type of weekender they were (from homebody to passed out at the bars). If conversation was flowing and we had similar interests then I would feel more confident that I wasn’t wasting my Saturday evening. Those seeking a more casual relationship would most likely meet…

There were so many people who told me to enjoy being young because you’re carefree, no responsibilities and all you really have to do is go to school and do your homework. Needless to say these people annoyed the hell out of me. What I wanted more than anything when I was a kid was … Continue reading Adulting is overrated. Plain and Simple
