Cyber Stalking

If I don’t start dating soon, or get a hobby, I think I will go insane. I have begun to cyber-stalk Lex. Ok, not really begun. More like, its become a little out of control a few weeks after it began. I spend more time on the dating site checking to see if and when he has been on than on actually looking for someone new.  There is something uncomfortably satisfying to see that he logged in on a Friday or Saturday

Teary Date

I have been a bit of a hermit since Lex and I broke up. I haven’t been in the mood for dating. Initially I kept myself busy with friends, parties, activities, and dieting. (There is no better revenge than living well and looking fantastic!) But eventually the false gaiety grated on my nerves more than being alone. So I decided to just “be.”  The first 2 weeks were fantastic. I enjoyed my own company so much that I

The Cookie Crumbles…

I haven’t written for months now, and now I really wish I had. I had a death in my family in February, causing me to leave the country for a month. My awful boss gave me a written warning because of my “extended absence.” Apparently a death in the family is insufficient reason to miss work. So I decided to find a new job, while dealing with the death of a loved one alone. She died

Battle of the Witless

Of course, I don’t learn my lesson. I went to the spa on a girl’s night out with one of my great friends. I had told Lex a week before that I had planned it, and of course he doesn’t forget a thing. So he met us in the lobby. He was actually quite sweet as always, which is the problem.  Every time we see each other, we have a great time together, are very compatible, and things feel very… easy and relaxed. There seems to be a deep connection between us which neither of us seem to be able to either commit to or abandon. It leaves us swinging in limbo. And I suspect that I am the one whose feelings are most likely to be shredded, just hanging there for all to see in


I took Lex out for dinner. His energy made me feel nervous – even anxious. He admitted that he is very stressed. For the first time (probably ever) we really spoke. He told me about all his anxieties, his upset, his feeling of unhappiness. He told me some real information about himself, his aspirations, his family. I listened.

The nature of our relationship has always been escapist. What I love about Lex is that no

Budding Romance

I had a lovely time at dinner with Arty. He picked me up forty minutes late (again!). I guess that this is his standard. Next time I will take my time in getting ready. He called me when he was already 10 minutes late to say that he would be late. I was not too bothered because I was catching up on my DVR.

At my suggestion, he took me to a local trattoria, which has good service, delicious food and fantastic ambiance. Arty is a complete

Clubbing it

I am sorry that you haven’t heard from me for days. This is because absolutely NOTHING happened in my life for about 2 days. NO phone calls, no dates: just life at the grindstone. For those people who think that the single life is all glitz and unattached glamor, so sorry to disappoint you. Its not always possible for you to live vicariously through us footloose and  fancy-free folks.

Actually, there is one new update. Someone new on
