There's a difference between being alone and being lonely. Being alone means there's no significant other to wake up next to, to call when we get good news, or to kiss goodnight after a long day. Being lonely means living perpetually in a world not being able to escape ourselves and craving anything but our own company.
I remember feeling a bit schizophrenic about all of the festivities surrounding the holiday season. There were times when I wanted to get together with loved ones, and times I wanted to be alone, and I never quite knew when the mood for either would strike. Here are a few things I learned.
What makes a confident woman doubt herself? An independent, self-sufficient hard working woman feel as though she's not enough? The answer is simply men, or I should say lost men. This is know man hating article, but rather an honest view of many who make successful women crumble for no purpose beyond an ego boost. And why is that?
It's Saturday night and you're out with your girlfriends. You spot a incredibly attractive man across the room. Instead of approaching him you secretly dream about him asking for your number as you talk about him to your friends. The night is soon over and you leave with Mr. Dreamy only in your dreams.

I live a life of happiness, the kind of happiness I worked really darn hard after my divorce to achieve.
Yes, I am one of those women who does not want to get married. This is nothing new. Even as a child, I never dreamed of a beautiful white dress, a charming prince, or a sparkling ring. The fact that my parents divorced only confirmed my opinion.
A year ago, I wrote a blog post called “Why Being Single in My 20’s is the Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me.” It was a well-received piece a...
The only ring I'm looking for right now is the one the wine glass leaves. So instead of chasing marriage, I'm chasing life. I'm chasing the "me" I need to be so that when I (and he) are ready to meet, it'll be everything we both dreamed it would be.
Divorce may have taken away my happiness for a long while. It may have taken away the stability in my life -- not only financially but in so many other ways. But divorce has not robbed me of my dreams.
No one's life is perfect. And no matter what your situation is, there are always pros and cons. I'm sure most other people would agree with my assessment of the single life. Many of us would like to meet our soul mate, but until that happens, it's just best if we just focus on the pros, and not on the cons.
I am intelligent, well-spoken, passionate and not at all bordering on the ledge of insanity. Instead of wondering why I was unable to capture a man that wanted me badly enough to secure my reputation , please wonder why on earth such a man doesn't exist for me -- or you.
I fell asleep that night knowing I'd be back to see what I had missed, leaving any previous anxiety I had in the wind against the edge of that white curtain and welcomed my next adventure at sunrise.
On the bright side, you're capable of being happy if you have a thick skin and you know what you're getting yourself into when you jump into the hookup scene.
Let's keep walking, head held high, trusting the unknown adventure if you dont't or if you *do* really want marriage and 2.5 kids and a wildly successful instagram account of your rescue pugs/baby goats farm (I may be projecting a little bit here).
The crying was relentless. And it kept getting louder. I pulled myself out of bed and shuffled myself downstairs, disoriented and angry. Why is she s...
