And so I spoke too soon. Alas, AIDAN and I were not meant to be. He broke up with me Friday night because he felt “his heart just wasn’t in it” and that it wouldn’t be fair to me to be with someone who wasn’t giving 100%. There was nothing... Continue reading

I want a man who’s gonna show up at my door and surprise me - with or without flowers. I want that 2am text telling me he misses me. I want a handwritten note spilling his feelings for me. But here’s the caveat: I want all this without telling AIDAN... Continue reading

So I met this boy and he kinda became my boyfriend and I’m kinda mucho ‘in like’ with him. I met him on the Junkyard - shocking, I know. We texted, talked on the phone, even Skyped (for 3 hours). Our first meeting was when he surprised me at work... Continue reading

Holy crap it’s been 3 months since I blogged. I have no excuse for you. I haven’t even been all that busy. But that’s neither here nor there. I’m back and here’s what you missed - the 2 most bizarre sexual encounters of my life, hooking up with more than... Continue reading

I went out on a second date with the nice guy – Mr. Monday Night. I was surprised since MY TWIN told me that too much time had passed since the first date and that there most likely would be no second date. We went to the movies and had... Continue reading

Mr. Saturday Night turned out to be a complete fucking weirdo. After an hour-long Date #2, there will be no further contact and I hope he has lost my number. We met at a dive bar in his neighborhood which was filled with old townies. During our “date”, he proceeded... Continue reading

I went out with Mr. Saturday Night and just as I suspected, he was very nice. And normal. And average. I didn’t feel quite a connection but there was nothing wrong with him. And he does have tattoos, as it turns out. We went out to dinner (which I’m not... Continue reading

Last Wednesday we ended things. Thursday was a blur. Friday it hit me and I had a pity party that lasted until Sunday. This sucks. I went over there on Wednesday to scare him into admitting his love for me but that just backfired. Badly. Instead I found ANOTHER text... Continue reading

Maybe it was the text messages I found in his phone? Maybe it was the day I didn’t hear from him because he “left his phone in the car”? Maybe it was the stories he told me that had one too many loopholes? Whatever it was, it’s pushed me to... Continue reading

I did it. I had the conversation I’d been dreading. I told THE STALLION my dirty little secret. And it was hard. But here I am spouting out about being honest and everyone having a past and blah blah blah. So it was only fair I share with him something... Continue reading

So if you know me IRL, you know that I’ve got me a new man. We were off to a rocky start, but things have gotten so much better than I ever could have imagined. Before I go any further, I’d like to change MR. RED FLAG’s name back to... Continue reading

New Year, New Me. Well, sort of. How’s about new opportunities? Opportunities to be a smarter person, a wiser dater, a better writer. Now that I can dig. I’ve come up with a list of 13 things I wanna do for 2013. You can find it over HERE. I’d like... Continue reading

A whole week has gone by and it’s been a whirlwind, let me tell ya. I’ve been completely wrapped up with my Italian Stallion, whom shall now be known as Mr. Red Flags. We started talking about a week ago and met for the first time last Tuesday night. I... Continue reading

Ah yes, it’s Friday - time for the big date with 50 SHADES. Cue: everything falling to shit. At first, I was so proud of myself for not texting him since Monday. Here’s how it went down: HE initiated contact with ME on Facebook that Thursday night, and HE asked... Continue reading

**Allow me to preface this post by saying the 2 are completely separate. Ok, glad that we clarified that. Anyway, I’ve been wanting to write for a few days now but I just haven’t been able to bring myself to do it. I’ve been so damn tired and “blah”. Started... Continue reading

Where do I even begin? Apparently ODB is quite the jokester. His Facebook ‘In a relationship’ status is fiction and he just likes to fuck with people. It worked. I only know this because I confronted him about it and he told me it’s just a joke. We started texting... Continue reading

So in true “Hot Mess” form, my playful love affair with ODB was apparently all in my head. He decided to abruptly stop texting with me and when I tried to start it up again, I was pretty much shut down. Asshole. (Him, not me.) So fuck him, on to... Continue reading

I haven’t been able to sleep lately. I don’t know if it’s my new meds, the break-up with SQUID, or my unhappiness with my job, but something is keeping me from getting my uninterrupted 8 hours. And it sucks. I feel like a zombie. I wake up feeling restless, load... Continue reading

Well, sadly, our ‘break’ turned out to be a ‘break-up’. Truth be told, I think it was inevitable really. He has so much going on in his own head; it’s virtually impossible to be in a relationship right now. Not to mention, I’m not perfect by ANY stretch and am... Continue reading

Cluesy, The cookies are called "Grandma's Mini Sandwich Cremes" and I am hooked. They are in the vending machine at work for $1.25 and the bag is about 85% full of cookie-goodness (unlike bags of chips which are about 80% full of air) making this an economical AND tasty treat! And I'm the kinda gal who'd bring a bag for myself and one for my partner so we can max out whilst watching crappy tv on the couch... xoxo

Being on this break, I’m starting to think about myself for once; to be selfish. I have to say, it’s not something I’m used to and it does feel funny. But at the same time, it feels really good. Liberating, one might say. What do I want for myself? I... Continue reading

It has now been six months and one very long rollercoaster ride. I’m writing this from my parents’ couch as THE SQUID and I have decided to take a break from our relationship. And let me just say, I hate when people bash that. As if taking a break means... Continue reading

I went on a 6 month hiatus while I was dating THE SQUID. He's a super private person and didn't feel comfortable with me sharing all the intimate, gory details about our relationship on here and I respect that. But things have gotten a little bumpy on that road and... Continue reading

The last time I wrote, it was to spill the details of my third date with Inked Up Dude who will now affectionately be known as, THE SQUID. Aside from it being an inside joke (yes, we’re lame and we have inside jokes already), a squid has ink, is highly... Continue reading
