My Discarded Men

So, whatever happened to the Norwegian?  I don’t know to be honest.  I’m already bored with the idea of “Reader’s Digest Mondays” (and it’s not even Monday!) but I realized that I do have a few loose ends to tie up. And so, getting back to the Norwegian.  We tried to get together after our…

How to Outsmart eHarmony

My God.  I’d forgotten how much work goes into online dating.  And I haven’t even reached the dating phase yet!  I’m still stuck in the interminable quagmire that comprises eHarmony’s “Guided Communication Process” but I will say this: I’ve received some interesting prospects this week.

A Secretarial Boyfriend, Please
