The “R” Files

Attention to Detail Why open the door to … heartache?’ That’s what he said. My architectural photographer. Well, he’s not mine of course. He’s someone I have been corresponding with. He’s a bit wild looking, with longish black hair and turquoise-framed glasses. Indeed. Why? He lives a 55 minute commute away. ‘Why did you start … Read more

Rear-View Mirror

According to the poets, spring is the season of love, but I’m seeing it every day as the leaves fall and the smell of wood smoke is in the air. Autumn.

Today my legs are feeling the abuse and I’m laying low at my local coffee shop, sipping Rooibos tea, people watching, and thinking about my male buddies that are important in my life. The most interesting talks with men, … Read more

Home Renovation and Online Dating

Just as we parted I pulled one of those multi-screwdriver sets from my pocket. “Can you show me how to work this thing? I’ve tried and tried, and even looked it up on the internet. I decided to bring it and ask any man I run into if he can show me.”

All in a Name

I suppose I did subconsciously choose the name white_oleander for a reason. I put my profile back up after the break-up with Buddha_Man and I admittedly was feeling let down and angry.

Keep Coming Back

I met with the Italian Stallion not because I held any hope that he might be Mr. Right, but more because the meeting was to be at Charlesport Village. This is an historical fishing port and I love the sight of all the fishing boats, the pier, the dike, and the quaintness of the shops … Read more
