Dear God in heaven, where do I begin with this weeks’ Dater X post. Let’s start at the very beginning because, as they say, that’s a very good place to start. ..it got me thinking about why I “withhold” (if you can call it that) fellatio from casual partners. The reason is actually simple: I […]

It’s Sunday morning and I’ve been up since five am. I’m sleeping less fitfully and not waking up several times throughout the night, but I’m also rising much earlier.

It’s become de rigueur of xoJane to publish posts from women lacking self-awareness, especially when to comes to dating. Last week, one of xoJane’s regular contributors lamented about the shallowness of men in Manhattan. I love New York, but I hate dating here. I have no problem meeting men, but I have yet to meet […]

Sometimes You Are Just A Pit Stop For A Guy

November 12th, 2014

Today’s Dater X post over at The Frisky got me thinking about something that happened to me a few months ago. I told everybody about Ben, the British guy from OKCupid that I tore a new one when he told me he blew off our plans because he met someone else. (Note: I deleted that […]
