Why am I always seeking other’s opinions to validate my self-worth? Why do I allow break-ups to damage my self-confidence? Why do I always assume there is something wrong with me that the other person doesn’t want to be with? These are questions that I have asked myself time and time again, and have now learned to ignore and put to the back of my mind.
Suddenly I have found myself turning into that person who can’t remember past conversations or specific details about another person; the person who used to annoy me by their “lack of interest”. Between dates, conversations, two different apps and mindless swiping, I can’t keep them all straight! My friends have even become confused, and one … Continue reading The Dating Game (Part II)
Have you ever wondered what happened with someone you were dating? Did it seem like the relationship was going well and then all of a sudden, out of nowhere, the guy ended things? Have you thought about how you should or shouldn't act on a first date and what your realistic expectations should be? These … Continue reading The Male Perspective
2016 was a very strange, wicked year; so strange and wicked in fact that someone actually made 2016 into a short horror film (if you haven’t watched it, here it is: https://youtu.be/Z04M6NhkIKk).

We’ve all done it: Made up some excuse as to why we cannot go on a date. Maybe you were “sick”, lost your phone or it died, had an emergency, or just forgot. But, why do we do this? What is so daunting about telling the truth? The Little White Lie I recently reached … Continue reading Excuses, Excuses
I have decided to do something that I have never been able to do before: Date. I am loyal to a fault, and because of this I have never been able to date more than one person at a time. Obviously this hasn’t been working for me, so why not play the field? It's not … Continue reading The Dating Game (Part I)
Match.com, eHarmony, Plenty of Fish, Tinder, and Bumble: different names, same profiles and stereotypes. While Match and eHarmony allow you to create an in-depth profile to express your interests and desires, the fast-paced, superficial apps like Tinder and Bumble are taking over.
“Single” shouldn’t be a scary, “four letter” word. This should be a period in your life when you get the gift of time to yourself; the time to find out who you are, learn to love yourself, and embrace your freedom. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time being single. How much time do you have … Continue reading Embracing Your Single-Self
The world is a very different place in your 20’s than in your 30’s. Expectations, desires, and attractions change forms and mean something completely different and, in my opinion, something better. In Your 20’s: This is the era where dating is mainly for sport, unless you’re one of the rare few who are ready to … Continue reading A Change of Perception
