What exactly is a dating 'Deal Breaker'? These are the qualities a man either has or comes with that you can't tolerate in your life. Or conversely, they are qualities a man MUST HAVE in order to date you, such as the same religion or culture.
Maybe it was because I really didn't want to go to the party we were invited to. Maybe it was because we recently took a class encouraging us to explore each other's bodies with curiosity. Whatever the reason, something very different happened that night when we began to have sex.
"Fail Fast, Fail Often," is a phrase mentioned quite often within the San Francisco startup scene. Basically, when you have a startup, it's sometimes best to "fail quickly and often" before actually succeeding. Coincidently, this is also what the San Francisco dating scene is like.
Sometimes getting to know someone needs to happen without the haze of sex. The fact of the matter is that intimacy breeds connection. And no matter how cute or how strong the initial chemistry, some people should not be a connection. The Perfect Guy is a perfect demonstration of that.
Thank you for leaving me. Thank you for not believing in me, for shattering my self-confidence along with my heart, for being "the one that got away." From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

I went way too far and I was completely out of control. A friend told me, point-blank, that what I was doing was killing everything and I needed to quit.

I recently went to a novelty party, which is like a Tupperware party, but with sex toys. A bunch of women get together in somebody's living room, drink enough wine to float the Titanic off its iceberg, and watch a sales rep -- one of the moms from the carpool line -- hawk the latest in 'pleasure accessories.'

Plenty of things about middle age really suck. Waistlines expand, hair thins, skin sags. And then there's all that stuff with the nether regions. If you're middle aged and recently became single, issues like these not only affect your reflection in the mirror, they can also impact your search for a partner.
Don't compare yourself to your high school friends. Don't compare yourself to your college friends. Don't compare yourself to coworkers. Don't compare yourself to anyone. You're doing just fine.
Whether it is the delicious newborn, the energetic toddler, the potentially stinky middle school kid or even the dramatic high school one, a parent is physically and mentally drained by the end of each day. Consequently, I'm not entirely sure why sex is considered a taboo topic when no parent seems to be having much of it.
"Old age was the proper time to fall in love. It was the proper time to suffer romances and jealousy and lose your head...old age...when you felt things more and could spare the time to go dead nuts over a person and understand how fine a thing it was."
We pick men the same way we pick out a new designer bag: with great thought and consideration, and the sincere belief that it's going to last a while.
