Thoughts on Needs, Expectations, and Reality

I enjoy reading blogs on relationships; it appeals to the voyeur in me, and I am able to get some perspective on my own wants in relation to dating. Often I come across blogs written by men who are frustrated with women; men who are “good” or “nice” guys, complaining that women are looking for bad... Sign in to see full entry.

If I were forced to choose one word or quality that defines my life, it would have to be passion. I don’t possess passion on a scale that demands I focus on big social issues, and I do regret this. But passion livens my world, bringing Technicolor life to a world others perceive as gray,... Sign in to see full entry.

Alan In Ohio

I'm on a dating site that also offers blogs. With permission I'm posting some correspondance between me and a potential beau. Let's see how this plays out..... Jennifer, I find your style of writing fascinating. I don't suspect we'll ever meet but would like to know you, as a personality/person a... Sign in to see full entry.

My Blogs

I've been reading over my blogs this evening, and they're all sickeningly similar: little slice-of-life-bon-mots that end with some pithy piece of wisdom. As I read them over I think, "Man, this broad's got all her s**t in one sock! I wonder who she is?" The problem is that I've developed a style,... Sign in to see full entry.

Teenage Dating

Those of you who have read my blogs or have corresponded with me know I have a “checkered” past. It is a past I have—for the most part—come to terms with, and one that has, strangely, aided my success at both work and school. At home I appear to be a typical middle-class single mother: we have a... Sign in to see full entry.

A Single Woman's Thoughts

As a single mother of one (and blessed be I that it is only one) child—a teenager—holding down two jobs and going to school, my schedule gets pretty insane. It’s not unusual for me to leave the house at 7:30 AM, and not get home until after 8:00 PM. I am also a homeowner, which adds further... Sign in to see full entry.

The Phone And Internet Dating.

Last weekend I had two meets with men from the Internet. One man popped in unexpectedly via IM explaining he’d seen my profile and figured my screen name and yahoo IM address would probably match. I don’t much like IM, and usually dispatch unsolicited drop-ins pretty quickly, but he readily took my... Sign in to see full entry.

School Days

Summers are tough for me because I'm not in school. During the academic year I have it about as good as a gal possibly can: I work 3/4 time, and go to school 3/4 time; it creates--for me--a perfect balance, and I'm able to find my joy regularly. I've been working 40 hour days and feeling burned out,... Sign in to see full entry.

Busy, Busy, Busy....

This internet dating stuff ebbs and flows. I'm sure that if I tracked the numbers I could pinpoint the best times to catch a date (or a "meet," as I prefer to call them). I do notice that I get a lot of responses to my profile in the spring; I assume the guys are excited about the end of the long,... Sign in to see full entry.

Internet Dating Pet Peeve...

When I started this online dating project I figured it would be a snap; I’d pay a couple of bucks, post my profile, and in about two weeks, Voila I’d have a “boyfriend.” I tackled this as I do everything else in my life—with an intensity and commitment that some find intimidating—for this is a...
