That’s what they’re selling, I think.  Not love. Not companionship. Certainly not marriage. (There’s a reason why there’s no Testimonials page on their website, folks.)  What the Spindels excel […]

Friday came and went and this guy never followed up with me about tonight. I will bet any amount of money he was waiting for me to follow up with him. You know, to see how serious I was. Oh well. Guess I failed his second test. Let’s talk for a minute about how this […]

Is He Assertive or Just Angry?

Last year, I matched with a guy on Bumble. He had a full time job in one field, but was also a fitness trainer. Me being me, I asked him right off the bat (after he suggested we meet) if he was using Bumble to find clients. Bad move. He said he wasn’t, wished me […]

How Do You Find a Man When You’re an Unconventional Woman?

March 26th, 2017

I find myself wanting to get out more and be around people. I joined a few Fitness-related Meetups, but was disheartened to see that I was one of the few “older” members. I suppose I could start a fitness group for 35+ members, but I know it will end up being mostly women that join. […]

Alias (DO NOT USE A REAL NAME!!): deliusfan : Comment: So after a decent first set of interactions online with a girl, and even a 50 minute phone conversation that kept her laughing, I thought we were in a good place for a first encounter, if not full-fledged date.  Since she didn’t live in my […]

Note: I previously wrote this for another website right after my father died. I’ve never published it here. I have a playlist on my phone labeled “Story of My Life.” Included on this list are songs that I’ve always found to encapsulate various tipping points in my life.
