April 1st, 2017

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?

March 28th, 2017

2 Comments

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. […]

Name: Gracie Question: Dear Moxie, I was wondering what you think about men who include the line “I’m looking for a serious relationship” in their profile. I met a guy on match.com last February and that is what he put in his profile. We’ve been dating for a year now, and the relationship doesn’t feel […]

Are Tinder, OKCupid, and Bumble a Waste of Time?

February 20th, 2017

  Name: OKWTF Question: Is OKCupid finished as a dating site?  I reactivated after a two year hiatus and I’ve noticed the site has taken a dramatic downhill turn.  I was using Tinder and Bumble but I didn’t feel those apps gave me enough space to flesh out my personality (and learn more about a […]

How Do You Avoid Dating a Liberal/Conservative?

February 17th, 2017

37 Comments

There’s really nothing like matching with someone on Tinder or OKCupid only to discover through messaging that they vote with your opposing political party. While how one identifies politically has always been a bone of contention, never has the issue been more volatile than it is today. As I swiped through profiles yesterday, I came […]

  Name: Couch Surfer Question: I’m in a town that is well known for its amazing outdoor options (hiking, camping, fishing, kayaking, running, climbing, mountain biking,  ski ing, snowboarding, and more…) and almost *all* the online dating profiles for men here seem to have a singular focus on ‘active lifestyle’, to the exclusion of anything […]

Stop Letting Strange Men Talk Dirty To You

If there’s one thing I’ve noticed in my 10+ years as a business owner, it’s that I get a hell of a lot less push back when I use the masculine (or assumed masculine) spellings of my name. (Chris, Christan.)  Through out my life I have been addressed as Christian. Even when I fill out […]

This article popped up in my Facebook feed the other day and I thought it might generate some interesting discussion. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4022554/Woman-left-huge-bill-Plenty-Fish-date-eats-expensive-meal-flees-restaurant-blocks-her.html So many red flags. SO MANY. But nothing was more suspect than the fact that this guy invited the woman to a high-end steakhouse on a first date without meeting her. (I can’t tell […]
