I’m back, Austin! Still single, still a work in progress, and still looking for Mr. Right.
Prologue I deleted ALL dating apps and profiles yesterday. I’m over it, and before I begin my tale of my last date from websites, let me explain why. First, I am tired of having conversations with people that I never end up meeting, it’s a waste of my time. Second, I am over going on … Continue reading My Last Online Date
Last weekend, the Austin American-Statesman posted this blog on Facebook about finding love in Austin: http://austin.blog.statesman.com/2017/02/14/single-women-are-likely-to-find-a-marriage-material-man-in-austin-but-single-guys-arent-as-lucky/ After reading it, I was left confused and irritated. This is my rebuttal I sent to them, challenging their views.

So, I may have chickened out of going to the Anti-Valentine’s Day happy hour, but I did have dates last week to make up for it! OK Cupid landed me my first two dates off the new site, back-to-back Thursday and Friday.

After a little over 2 months straight of internet dating, I need a break! People are either completely misrepresenting themselves online or they are only looking for hookups. An average of 3 dates a week for 2 months takes its toll on you. So, on my break I decided to do some things for myself. … Continue reading My Break From Dating

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
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.
