I'm not a dating expert, and I am certainly NOT claiming to be a relationship expert - I am however, very observant and attentive to things that matter to the heart.
I'm a single mother, in my thirties, I have a very demanding yet rewarding career in Marketing and Public Relations; and oftentimes, dating and relationships take a back seat, so I'm still searching for my prince charming. In the meantime, I'm happy being me, with or without a man.
I have recently found myself in a relationship. The girl that was two bad dates away from playing the other field has finally been bestowed with a good man. Even though I can proclaim it now, it took me a while to get here. I went through various phases of emotion towards men, including sadness,(…)
This time of year is beautiful, the leaves are multi-coloured and the temperatures drop to a more comfortable level; it may be a little chilly on some days but it’s nothing a warm jacket and winter headwear can’t fix. Why not take advantage of it on your next date (or first) date? A walk can be(…)
The beginning of a relationship is fun and exciting. It should be the time when you feel the sweet flutters of butterflies in your stomach. A girlfriend of mine once referred to men as caterpillars; After much forming and changing, they emerge from their pupa into a beautiful butterfly. Her theory is not far off,(…)
It’s awkward and unpleasant. Some would take a lobotomy over having to make that dreadful phone call or have ‘the talk’ with the person who was labeled as your other half. Regardless of how long you’ve been dating, ‘seeing’ one another, or perhaps just getting to know each other, the breakup conversation has the(…)
I am slightly oblivious to the flow of a traditional date and even the configuration of a relationship. It’s no secret to those that know me that I haven’t had a serious relationship for some time (the actual time is not relevant) . I did however, make a very serious attempt at a monogamous, honest,(…)
If you’ve been unsuccessful at scoring yourself a date on Valentine’s Day, you’re not alone. An unknown number of singles will be spending V-day on their own, but don’t fret, there are lots of things that you can do to make this Hallmark Holiday special too. The general consensus this year seems to be that(…)
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I can’t help but notice a shiver of panic spreading through myself, my friends, and all over my facebook wall. If you’re over 30, questions like “What am I doing wrong?” “Are all the good ones taken?” somehow always morphs over days months and years into: “Am I(…)
1. He finds it daunting. When V-Day rolls around each year, most of our guys feel set up for failure. Whatever he does has to be better than last year—and not just a bit of an upgrade—better in every way. If he’s somewhat romantic during the rest of the year, this holiday sets the bar(…)
It happened again. Another failed relationship. Whether you were in love, in like, or just simply going with the flow, break ups are hard. If you’re no stranger to the single life, such as myself, it may not take you long to re-engage yourself into the dating world; however, I caution, it’s not an easy(…)
Online dating is often fraught with concerns, such as; “Does he really look that gorgeous in real life?” and; “Is he who he says he is?” Based on these issues, you may be tempted to conduct a search online before you go on a first date with him. With so much information about people being(…)
Your date likes bungee-jumping, but you get your thrills watching horror movies. While you’re keen to spend your weekends antique shopping and taking fun courses, your date would rather be playing video games all day or watching sports. Do the differences matter when it comes to interests and hobbies? I used to fervently say ‘not(…)
You’re dating someone and things seem to be going fairly well, or so you think. At one point or another, it comes to your attention that something just isn’t right. Whether he’s changed from the first few dates, or he’s always been a little too chill about the relationship, there are ways to know when(…)
