A hot topic among my girlfriends seems to be should I be casually dating someone and how long can it go on for? Now the guy I'm "seeing," who I met on Tinder, I'm pretty sure will never marry me. Ever. He's still in his twenties and a few years younger (which is another story … Continue reading Is 30 Too Old to Date Casually?
I have two book edits left to do and I can’t manage to force myself to do them. As I previously mentioned, there’s been some ongoing family drama that’s really brought me down. I’ve been really struggling with it and it’s been a challenging time. But things are looking up on the horizon and I … Continue reading Self-Publishing Update
It’s been one year, four months and thirteen days since he broke it off and I’m still reeling. Not on the bedroom floor crying (anymore) – thank God – just obsessively thinking about him and his new girlfriend/lady in his life (I’m not sure what she really is and I’m too scared to ask). To … Continue reading A Jilted Bride Update
There are so many angles I want to examine this from. From the dating perspective, part of me feels I made a big mistake giving the second guy (Uber guy) an ultimatum. As my brother-in-law informed me, no one likes an ultimatum –no one, not your family, friends or significant others. Keep them to yourself. … Continue reading Spoiled, Dating and Depression – Part III
I wrote a post last week about my latest dating adventure and I mention that a certain situation (the man not making sure I had a means to get home) has happened to me before. This is that first situation. We went to a movie that ended at about 8pm. And decided to walk to his … Continue reading Spoiled, Dating and Depressed
Now this has happened twice to me in the last year. But even the second time I feel hella good doing it/not standing for it. And that is odd for me because sometimes I can get down on myself instead. I am just too old for this foolishness. After meeting a suitor on Tinder (which … Continue reading When a man doesn’t drive you home. A dealbreaker? Hell yes!
I keep trying to make my life fit into this cookie cutter image I've fabricated from the lives of my family, my friends and expectations of society. Finish school. Get a job. Get married. Have kids. Work. Retire. Die. (There's a Sun Life Financial commercial showing how different things are now, something I should probably … Continue reading Leaving a Cookie Cutter Life Behind
Besides money (i.e. a good salary amount), over the past decade I've been searching for stability, something I didn't necessary have in my late teens. I was (and still am) looking for emotional stability as well as stability in my surroundings. Have I ever discovered it? In the last decade, perhaps for a few years. … Continue reading Stability with Depression – Part 1
As I get ready to ring in the new year tonight so many things cross my mind. Will 2016 be any different for me? Is there a point to making any resolutions? How hard is it really to change your habits? I hope it's a new year spent letting go, moving forward and making new … Continue reading To 2016
Now this may sound selfish as there are probably a million reasons to value your life and time on this earth, but to be honest the number one reason I've never taken suicidal thoughts any further is because I am deathly afraid of death. It actually gives me anxiety when I think about it too … Continue reading Why I’ve never gone through with suicide
