Adrienne’s Back From The Front

What am I doing? Vodka Boy and I have so little in common. He told me the last time I saw him, while he was chopping beans to dump into a pan on his hot plate in his motel room, that he was diabetic. Type 2. Oh, man, this guy is going to be in … Read more

Never Surrender!

It’s like it never happened. If it weren’t for the emails I’ve put in the cyber-vault and collection of pictures I have stored in my internet file labelled: men with impact, there isn’t any evidence of Omar, my Egyptian connection. I mentioned how resilient I am? I am. I shed a few tears, yes, but … Read more

Not A Jane Austen Novel

I’m following the advice from a writer on the dating site. He has some pretty valid points to make, I must admit. He figures that women ‘delete, next,’ far too easily. He points to a ‘Sex in the City,’ character, Charlotte, who meets her future husband and despises him immediately. But, he persists in wooing … Read more

Recycle This

I have recycled a few potential mates over the years. I was willing to give Pilot-Boy another fly by, but he wrote back to tell me he was attached now and had been for over a year. In retrospect, he was one who should remain where he was, in the recycle bin where I placed, … Read more

Whatever Happened To So-And-So?

I can’t believe I’m doing it. I found myself cyber-stalking an old boyfriend. How easy Facebook makes it for us to ‘check up’ on an old flame. I don’t know what triggered thoughts of this guy I dated on and off for about ten months. It was six years ago. He was clearly not the … Read more

Just Find Another One

What would I do without my friends? Perish, I think. I had my hair foiled and cut last night. Farrah is a woman from Iran and in my books she is a beauty. She doesn’t think so. She thinks I am, with my pale skin and blonde hair. I think she is exotic with her … Read more
