I know it's been a while. A real long while since I've posted. I feel a strong need to bring this blog to a culmination. I'm sure you think that I've been secretly dating someone the past couple of months and I've been hiding it from you. I don't want... Continue reading

Date Day!!! What, what??? Yessiree! I had another date today! This one was totally strange, and totally my fault for the weirdness involved. Lots of "firsts" for me when it comes to a first date. #17 was from okcupid. I read this book called Dataclysm written by the inventor of... Continue reading

Oh yeah? A date. You thought I disappeared didn't you? Well, surprise surprise, when it rains it pours, and I have 4 dates this week! Today, I went on a lunch date with BD#8. This is a tall, dark, hunky man I met at the grocery store. To summarize, he... Continue reading

I was just sitting here reminiscing about some legendary first date adventures that I've had. While I've had some exciting fun adventures, I've also had some scary ones, and some sad ones. Most first dates are incredibly anticlimactic, though, I'm not gonna lie. I do hand out prizes in my... Continue reading

Hello! Hi! How are ya? I'm sure you're wondering what's going on with my personal life. Especially my dating personal life. It's been a while since I've posted about it, and I know that you don't give a crap about my blog unless I'm writing about the depressing world of... Continue reading

You know those really awesome profile pictures you have that are of you doing something awesome or looking awesome? I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. An essence shot. Someone captured you in a moment that "described" you. You didn't know it was coming, and you were caught off... Continue reading

We can't tell my boss that his feedback last week was the best slap in the face anyone could have ever give me. Yes, the past couple of months I've been completely out of my element. I forgot how to be myself, and I let rejection effect my performance. That... Continue reading

Welp, I got coached with feedback big time from one of my bosses. He asked why I was still single, and why things didn't work out with so and so, and I told him that I was not going to sell someone into dating me. I told him I didn't... Continue reading

Ug, dating is getting worse and worse. All the good ones are emotionally unavailable, or dating other women at the same time that "win". And the bad ones? They are getting scarier and crazier. I got a text from someone I have never met today that asked what I was... Continue reading

Ok, I don't know how I get myself into these situations. My world is SO small. God is really messing with me. Ok, I don't know if you read my blog post from earlier in the year about the Happiness Project I did. If not, here is a refresher. My... Continue reading

Well let me tell you, this date is one to go down in the record books. Disclaimer: this is not the guy that I cancelled with last week. That will never happen. Let's see. Started off my day waking up really early to get ready, as we planned on meeting... Continue reading

So, I had to cancel a date. #16 and I had been talking for about a month. We met on farmersonly.com (don't you dare judge, some of my favorite friends and family members are in the agriculture industry). Me? I'm a failure. Because of the holiday weekend, I had off... Continue reading

The single most common advice I get is "don't do anything different than you normally do, it'll happen when you least expect it." I know these people are right. It's happened every time. It always happens when I least expect it. Which is why I don't understand why I continue... Continue reading

So today and yesterday had me thinking about how actually cool it is to be single. It also reminded me why I went 2 years without dating. While I try really hard to not get in the habit of liking it toooooooooo much, as there are also 10 reasons why... Continue reading

Today I popped my dress open like a can of biscuits while working with a client. Just standing. Nothing special. So that happened. I quickly jumped in my car and ran across the street to Nordstom Rack to pick up a new dress. I got a lot of compliments on... Continue reading

Run! You're not running yet? Run. You don't run? Walk fast. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE exes. My exes exes are AMAZING women. Just like myself. That's why my ex dated them. Because they are amazing like me. I'm even friends with my exes ex. Like, hanging out friends.... Continue reading

I will admit that I cheated slightly on my third date with myself. I was SO excited to go on this date because I LOVE sand volleyball. In fact, it's the perfect night too, as if I was home in Milwaukee, my mom and I would be playing tonight in... Continue reading

I know it's been a while since I've made a post. I've written a ton in my head, but I just can't seem to get it down on paper. (By paper, I mean computer, obvi) Ok, so I was a little curious about a particular dating website that I hadn't... Continue reading

Sorry to be crass, I just wanted to get your attention so I could point out how AMAZING my best friend is. I know, I know. My boss gets on me all the time about using the words "best friend". As Mindy from the 'Mindy Project' says, "Best friend isn't... Continue reading

Tonight I have empathy for men having to plan dates. So I wanted to take myself out tonight for a Selfie Date, and was thinking a nice dinner and movie. I spent a good half hour looking at previews and reviews, theatres and locations. I couldn't find anything that I... Continue reading

I don't know if you are aware, but sometimes when I make a post, it comes with some behind the scenes controversy. Some heat on the streets right now: "I wish you would keep online dating. It's so funny." Thank you. It is funny. Because I make it funny. Reality;... Continue reading

I shouldn't announce this out loud to hundreds of people, but I LOVE moving. I love the packing, the heavy lifting, the organization, the tetris-like loading, the unpacking, the painting, the arranging. EVERYTHING. I would move once a year if anyone let me. BUT, I have not moved in a... Continue reading

I was truly honored tonight to be included as an official stop in my cousin J's summer road trip. This is us back in the day, just chillin'. Whatcha know about overalls? Probably not as much as us. Just sayin'. Coolest thing ever. She lives in South Dakota, and decided... Continue reading
