Used Cows and Crumpled Flowers

Let’s talk about sex. A very personal topic, to be sure. And I’ll be straight with you, internet. I’ve never had it. I didn’t have it on prom night or experiment in college. I didn’t have a Bradshaw-esque one night stand in New York City or make a really bad drunken decision. (Well, that’s notContinue reading “Used Cows and Crumpled Flowers”

Online Dating

It was my first foray back into the “wonderful world of online dating.” Actually, it was my re-introduction to dating after a very long time…period. And boy, was I rusty! I flexed my dating muscles by downloading 2 of the most popular dating apps: Tinder and Bumble. Basically the same thing in different clothes. The Dr. Jekyl and Mr.Continue reading “Online Dating”

Starry Night

When I think of starry nights, I think of one in particular. There was a girl and a boy and a perfect date. A date so memorable that I made an episode about it in my web series a few years ago. Take a look… You know what’s funny? Well, maybe funny is the wrongContinue reading “Starry Night”

On the Subject of…

High School. Recently I have been binge watching  the, sadly, short-lived Carrie Diaries (only 2 seasons…sad face.) And like all the teen dramas I’ve enjoyed in my life (Dawson’s Creek, The OC, One Tree Hill, etc) watching it makes me feel like maybe I missed something. I never had a first kiss in high schoolContinue reading “On the Subject of…”

What Coulda Been…

On Saturday evening, I got rear ended. Thank God my car wasn’t damaged and I only ended up with minor whiplash, all in all not a big deal. But here’s what coulda been… The guy coulda pulled over, checked to see if I was ok, if my car was ok. We coulda exchanged numbers. ItContinue reading “What Coulda Been…”

On the Subject of…

Dating! To say that I’ve put a moratorium on dating, would be a bit of an understatement. I’ve downright boycotted the concept, the institution, the application, the very existence of dating in my life. I’m not talking about the sweet, meet cute kind you find in rom coms. You know the kind… “Oops, I spilled myContinue reading “On the Subject of…”

Paradise Found

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a girl surrounded by her bestest of friends is the happiest of people. UNIVERSALLY ACKNOWLEDGED. And I’m not talking about your run of the mill acquaintance here…I’m talking deep, unfailing friendship. The kind of friends that tell you “Those shorts do not work with your ass.” They tellContinue reading “Paradise Found”

Unrealistic Friendspecations

As a single, 30-something who was living in New York until a short time ago, I relate to the beloved TV show, Friends, on so many levels. Too many to count. There is no show that means so much to me and has influenced my life the way Friends has (with Seinfeld coming in atContinue reading “Unrealistic Friendspecations”

Return to Blogland

You know what’s hard to do? Write a book about boys and dating when you currently have no interest in boys or dating. I know, I know…I wrote an entire 40 episode web series on boys and dating. So…there’s that. And I can’t really describe to you what’s changed. The fundamental paradigm shift that’s happened inContinue reading “Return to Blogland”

Where are all the Princes?

Today I want to talk about Princes. From a young, young age, little girls are taught about the Princes. “Someday My Prince Will Come.” “Kiss a frog, you might find a prince.” I just want to ask, where are all these Princes? Obviously America is not a monarch nation. So we don’t actually have anyContinue reading “Where are all the Princes?”
