‘The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.’ – Carrie Bradshaw

I went on an adventure a month ago that changed me forever, seriously. One of the many items on my life long, never ending, bucket list included a week long solo trip. I travel a ton and have been to over 25 countries, but I have never gone anywhere for more than 2 days completely […]

‘He doesn’t even know me , the least he could do is get to know me before he rejects me.’ Miranda Hobbes

Dating, or lack thereof, has me mentally exhausted. That’s an understatement. Funny enough, I think my mom is more exhausted than I am. Anytime I mention my weekend plans she follows it with, “Oh, that sounds nice, maybe you’ll meet your husband!” I honestly think she thought I was gay up until a few years […]

“Maybe our girlfriends are our soulmates and guys are just people to have fun with.” – Charlotte York

Over the past year I’ve neglected this blog but at the urging of my nearest and dearest, I’m back! I have tons of stories to update, both personal experiences and those shared by my girlfriends who share #thestruggle. As for me? I surrender. No, really. I give up. I’m sure you’ve heard of Bumble by […]

“One of the reasons some people still risk the possible horror of a first date is the possible magic of the goodnight kiss at the front door.” ~ Carrie Bradshaw

72 hours. Three first dates. Yep, I’m exhausted but I did it. I was actually scheduled to have four dates this week but had to reschedule someone as I simply cannot do another 2 hour conversation of “where are you from? what do you do? do you have siblings? how do you find dating in […]

Aleksandr Petrovosky 2.0 Part II

So back to the italian (Part I here), the man of my dreams…or so I thought. After our London trip, I was concerned…concerned about his OCD, his mood swings, the sex…just concerned. We continued to talk everyday, but something changed. The butterflies in the stomach were officially dead and gone. I felt like I was going […]

“Do any of you have a completely unremarkable friend or maybe a houseplant I could go to dinner with on Saturday night?” ~ Miranda Hobbes

A quick pause on the Italian Love Affair story for a check in on my current dating life aka tumbleweed central. As I’ve shared, I’m currently online dating and of course there are many special characters that flood my inbox, for example: Interesting….maybe those spelling/grammar errors were just autocorrect mistakes Nope, nope, I think those are just you […]

Aleksandr Petrovsky 2.0 Part I

From as far back as I can remember, I had this idea in my mind that I would meet and marry a distinguished italian business man. I could see him in my teenage dreams, tall, slender, dark features, hair not too long but not too short, eyes that would make any woman melt, italian accent, […]
