It is not the intense adrenaline rush that makes me feel sick, it's not anxiety forcing me on bended knee or the mood and tone changes of my man that draws tears. Instead it's calm, it's safe and it's the perfect fit.
The last time I went on a date as a single man my companion and I exchanged pager numbers. Once smitten, I called her dorm room and recited a poem I wrote for her on her answering machine. This was only after purchasing a long distance calling card. Roughly eighteen years and one child later I find myself again single and to be frank, I'm too old for this sh*t.
If dating and Cuffin' Season hasn't worked for you, perhaps try a new season: Courting Season.
In dating, it's very easy to focus on the other person - whether you're swiping on Tinder, perusing a dating site, or meeting face-to-face. We naturally focus on who we want to meet. You probably have a very good idea of the look and qualities of your ideal partner.
As adults, it's all about having serious conversations, worrying about the future, talking about things we need to accomplish. When was the last time you really laughed out loud for real?

It's baaaaaaaack. The premiere of season 12 of ABC's The Bachelorette found (the boobs of) Joelle "JoJo" Fletcher bouncing back from being very ceremoniously dumped on national television by milquetoast cousin of Miss Piggy, Ben Higgins, on the last season of The Bachelor
If allowed to grow and lead to true love and lasting happiness, very few of us would knowingly wish to sabotage a relationship. There are lots of women, though, who unknowingly sabotage what may have been a great relationship before it ever has a real chance to grow.
Instead of unrealistic expectations you better have no expectations but be open to what life is throwing at you. It will be great!
Hi, my name is Sarah and I love The Bachelor. For years, this show has been one of my social outlets. Except I have come to see (shamefully in very recent days) that this is not a show about love at all. It is all about drama. It advertises tears. And we, the crowd, eat 'em up.
It's a phrase that has been uttered by countless people who have experienced heartbreak and struggled to recover from broken relationships. I should know because I've been there. As have you, I believe? If so I feel your pain.
Are you swiping right or left on your mobile dating apps while looking for an alternative? I know that looking for love online and IRL can be challe...
Why is it the first firsts get all the attention? I promise you, darlings, nothing's lost with an old or ended relationship.
