I don't know if it's my demographic -- we're supposed to be desperate, us poor women over 50, and own cats -- but I get so annoyed with the number of fakes who contact me online.
I have always been a valentine-giving, mixtape-making, hopeless romantic. This year I decided to call in the heavy artillery, asking groundbreaking producer Jarreau Vandal to help me out with a few recommendations for this weekend's mix.
Yes, this is self-addressed, so no need for the stamp. Maybe you will allow for a momentary grace period so that your kinder, sweeter (though not Confectioner's sugar sweet) voice can speak on this day given over to L-O-V-E.
Theirs is a romance that never should have been, and Nordland dubbed them Afghanistan's Romeo and Juliet because of their rival sects, Sunni and Shia, and opposing ethnicities. With its message and its life-and-death drama, this story was -- and remains -- irresistible and beautiful.
The relationship had been relatively short, and I had been the one to break it off. Even so, I had been torn up over it for many months. I understood too late, that there had been something there. Something real that could have been more.

I grew up in a family of "I Love you's." Before bed, "Night, I love you!" Before school, "I love you!" Getting off of the phone, "Love you!" In fact...
It has been just the two of us, non-stop, glued together, seeing each other's good sides, tired sides, hangry sides and back sides. It's been just the two of us and our desire to create, travel, explore, and see this fantastic world. I gotta stop and wonder, 'how did I get so lucky?'
Here's a quick pick me up, just in case you could use one (or save it for later when you might need it...) If you are new to tapping, it will be ...
I don't know if I will get roses this year or a nicely wrapped red-colored box with ribbons or maybe a card. What I do know though is that when the nausea takes over, ever again, he will be standing next to me holding a glass of water and a bowl.
Be original, be you. Be the person you want to be and this love for yourself with empower you to be proactive, positive and even humble! The change you want to see in the world begins in you. Happy Valentine's Day!
Need more love in your life? While many of us focus on romantic relationships what about one of the most important relationships in life? Your FRIENDships -- loving, happy and healthy ones.
Dating mishaps make for great blog fodder or chick lit, but something more interesting than punch lines or cliches has emerged for me in the course of dating.
I hope someday my children will share with their children our particular love story. Mark and I met as teenagers, as counselors at a summer sleep-away camp, and we were immediately smitten. The rest, as they say, is history. This year we'll celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.
