Throwback Thursday: How to Outsmart eHarmony

I wrote this three years ago.  Three years ago and people are still commenting on the original post.  (Seriously, I woke up at 6:00am to the sound of WordPress app pinging away on my cell phone).  I get it, I was pretty snarky back then, and I still have hangups about height, but really this…

No Woman is Out of Your League

If you’ve been single for a while, it’s easy to find yourself feeling low on confidence. Many singles develop an idea of where they think they ‘rate’ in the dating game and what sort of singles they consider to be ‘in their league’. The good news is that this is all absolute nonsense. No one…

And the Winners Are…

The results are in!  But before I announce the winners of Mitchum’s Sticky Situation Sweepstakes, I’d like to thank everyone who took the time to share their stories.  I received over 60 entries (who’d have thought deodorant could be so inspiring?) and it’s taken forever to select to the best of Facebook entries and the…

Kissing Frogs in Cyberspace

In my continued efforts to determine just how far this serial dating epidemic has spread (and how I might learn from those who’ve gone before me), I decided to tackle Kissing Frogs in Cyberspace by Dianne Sweeney. The basic premise is exactly what one would expect of an online dating memoir: a self-possessed but single…

Life Lessons from a FASHION Director?

Ladies and gentleman, I have an announcement to make.  Three actually.  The first is that I spent Memorial Day at my parents’ place in The-Middle-of-Nowhere (Hoopers Island, MD) and am still wading through the comments on Saturday’s post; suffice it to say, the vast majority have left me speechless (and for a variety of reasons).…

A Question from the Hot Tub: Would YOU Date Me?

By the time you read this, I’ll be sitting in a hot tub overlooking the Chesapeake with a drink in hand—preferably something cool and alcoholic (even if it is only 8:00am)—and reading one of the Victorian novels I discovered while cleaning my room last weekend.  Today marks my first day off in three weeks and…

So About that 50th Date…

Last week I launched my official 50th Date Challenge.  For those of you just joining us, this entailed re-writing all of my online dating profiles (yes, all three of them) to be perfectly frank about my blog, my serial dater tendencies and my desire to celebrate my 50th date in style with something (if not…

A New Challenge for the Big Five-Oh

Last week I received a Facebook message from a public radio producer in Canada.  It’s contents?  Well, to be honest, it took me a good ten minutes to get past the words “read your blog” and “want to interview you.”  (Not that I’m completely self-absorbed and obsessed with blogging or anything…) I did, however, eventually…
