This weekend I met the fiancé of a guy a friend used to date. I was under the influence of the Jameson and professed my undying love for this man’s fiancé. And told him I wished he wasn’t gay so I could marry him. You know, just an average weekend for me: confessing my true love for a gay man who is having a big gay wedding in September.
Sparks (not the malt liquor beverage)
I’ve always subscribed to the idea that when you “knew” you were attracted to someone you just “knew”. There was no asking yourself how you felt about him/her, just BOOM - attraction. Some contend that once you get to know the person the attraction grows and I can see how that is true, but in this newfangled world of online dating, text messages, and emails, how do we...

OkC's Dating Persona Quiz... Not Accurate?
I was lurking on OKC and they had a quiz to “FIND OUT YOUR DATING STYLE” and we all KNOW that none of us can stay away from some narcissistic quiz to tell us how freaking awesome we all are and how every guy/girl is an eff’ing moron for not JUMPING ON THIS HOT PIECE. So, I indulge and take the quiz waiting to hear my results of that I am a demure, sexually repressed dork who has...
No cheese? No deal.
I was avoiding work and thought I’d hop on the ole OKC to check out the fresh meat. And as I was cruising, I ran across a guy whose name was “SteventheVegan” and all I could think was, “Oh shit. We’d never work. I love cheese too much.” Dating is hard, y’all. :(
Remember that whole judgmental thing? I just got a message from a gentleman with a default picture of him trying to pick up the back half of an 18-wheeler. Why? I have no idea. Pass.
While it’s super fun to take screencaps of messages of the ZILLIONS of men trying to get in my cookie jar, I promise that it won’t be all jabs and semi-witty comments. I do hope to actually meet some of these bachelors. In fact… I have been in contact with a gentleman and in the most recent message he gave me his phone number so we can TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL, Y’ALL. ...
Spelling iz hrd :(
Friendly OKC just let me know that I had a new quiver match, which I think means we’re compatible! He looked great, seemed interesting, and then… He spelled ‘potato’ ‘potatoe’. Argh. It wasn’t okay for the dapper Dan Quayle and it’s not okay with you, doctorman. :(
There’s something very fulfilling to sending a message to someone I think is cute. I mean, if he doesn’t write back, I’ll probably cry into my vodka, but FOR THAT ONE SHINING MOMENT (cue Luther Vandross, RIP) I held my destiny in my IPad and wireless keyboard !!!!!
What's in a Name?
We all like to think that we’re not judgey, but let’s real speak: we are some judgemental bitches. It can be as superficial as clothing, hair cuts, shoes, glasses, and weight or the heavy stuff like music choices, vodka preferences, and the seminal judgement call: tater tot v. french fry. (Don’t tell me your preference, I don’t want to judge you more than I already have.)...
backstory, there's always gotta be a backstory....
It recently came to my attention that whatever dating “methodology” I was using wasn’t working. And not just “I’m too picky!” or “He’s too hipstery!” or “He doesn’t love the Backstreet Boys are much as me!”, but straight up I was trying to date people who were a) ALREADY IN A RELATIONSHIP b) as mature as a green banana...
