On Your Mark…Get Set…

Sipping on a martini in D.C., my friends and I were having a great time chatting and shaking our tail feathers in this quaint lounge. As luck would have it, a rather handsome gentleman walks in. I slowly switched toward him and began interesting, yet mysterious conversation……in my head. In reality, I stood there with  Read more »

TV Guide

Isaiah…that was his name- the one true love of my life, the one that got away, the one that broke my heart. The one I daydreamed about all day and thought about all night. I had visions of marrying and living a life happily ever after with this guy, having his children, and growing old  Read more »

Want to Play?

                   Good mooooorning heartache…. I listen to Billie Holiday’s words as I sip my coffee and swallow the somber truth. Here I am again…single…and ready to mingle…I guess.  I think this, with as much enthusiasm that children have for standardized tests. I’m certain that most of you are expecting me to attribute this sickly heart  Read more »

A Little Lower…Please

A Little Lower…Please

Sometimes I wish my father were Napoleon Bonaparte- short and dull, yet powerful. Maybe this way, I’d have way more stories to share about the “insurmountable amount of men” that I’ve dated.

Spring- the season of growth; flower petals begin to peer into the sun, temperatures rise, and daytime plays long enough to enjoy happy hour without the worries of being mugged. Needless to say, I adore the spring time and the many changes that accompany this season. I personally find Spring’s predecessor, Winter, to be the  Read more »

Removing the Caste From My Heart…

Picture it. Virginia 2012. A cold winter’s day as dawn poured over the streets. Leaving after a long day at work, I decide to go to the grocery store. I turn around to see this tall drink of water that was of the male species. Me, being the indirect person that I always am, decides  Read more »

Technology [Un]Savvy

I was dating this guy that excitedly inquired about taking the next step in our developing relationship. Yep, after only a few months of a movie here, drinks there, paddle-boating elsewhere, he admits to me something that I would’ve never expected. This man wants to become Facebook friends! I immediately assume that he is joking, reply  Read more »

Constructive Cynicism

I was in a relationship where my needs were not met. Yep, my little needs were waiting on a corner in its lonesome only to never be found.   Communication was poor on both sides and we found ourselves in an awkward gray area - I like to call it relationship limbo. First relationships are like that of experiments  Read more »

X Files to the Next Files

           I’ve been trying this new thing out in my dating life- a little something called honesty. With the horrendous ending of my past relationship, I figured that being completely truthful with the next beau would lead to a relationship where nothing is hidden. You know, a relationship that rivals that of Barbie and Ken-  Read more »
