Raise your hand if you think that men should still pay for dates.  (Don’t worry, I’m going to tell you why). pic.twitter.com/ytoWfwTwXf — James Michael Sama (@JamesMSama) September 8, 2017 I’ve said time and again that I think dating coaches are a joke and a half and that nobody should pay them, and this is […]

August 26th, 2017

Okay, so, I wrote about Nate Rifkin and his verbose dating profile the other day. In the past 24 hours, he’s pivoted, removing the long-ass word salad and replacing it with an offer to teach brands how to go viral. Dear Friend, I have no idea how you reached this page. Maybe someone told you […]

Because F*ck Him, That’s Why

May 2nd, 2017

Do I strike you as someone who weeps at insignificant things? Exactly. That’s how wrecked and self-conscious and inadequate I felt. Intensifying those feelings are my tours of Instagram looking for motivational work-out clips. I look at the bodies on those women then stand in front of my mirror naked and sigh. Yes, I see […]

Where’s The Line Between Flirting and Harassment?

April 3rd, 2017

0 Comments

Welp, it’s that time again. In less than twenty-four hours I will turn forty-eight. Yikes. Forty-eight. Yeah, yeah. Age is just a number and all that, but still. For the first time in many years, I skipped a period this month. No, I’m not pregnant.  I’m like 99% sure it’s perimenopause.  I mean, yeah, all […]

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.
