Emotional ≠ rational

I know I haven't written much this month... to be honest, I've been trying to process my emotions and figure out what the hell I'm doing. It's been great living in the moment with truly wonderful company, catching as many good ones as I can, but I can't help but think of all the "what…

When you’re not looking…

I was finally happy being single and on my own; completely tired of dating, and not wanting to put any more effort, because (as the running theme) the guys in Tucson suck. One night last week I met up with a guy for a drink after work. It was a nice conversation even though I…

Mono v Poly

A good friend messaged me last night. It constantly amazes me that we're still friends after so many years, and having only actually seen each other for what could at this point be considered a millisecond in that time.  Regardless of how frequently or infrequently we speak, I end up either learning something new or…

An Eventful Birthday

Over the weekend I celebrated my 35th birthday with a bit of style. Saw Jimmy Eat World in concert, and saw a Giants spring training game. Although I didn't make it through the entire concert due to too much alcohol that crept up on me, what I heard of them sounded great, and I was…

February

So, there isn't actually a Mr. February. At this point it's a little too late to start my flavor of the month, even though I've said that even if I see a guy twice this month he'll be it. I'm not about to force anything, and as a matter of fact, I'm enjoying my alone…

Dating in Tucson

I've been feeling anxious lately. I feel like the dating pool in Tucson isn't very big, despite it being a pretty big small town. Big, because there's a healthy population spread out, with new homes and apartment buildings expanding further east and west to accommodate the slowly yet surely increasing population. Small, because it's like one…

Hello. My name is Bored.

Can any of you relate to being bored of dating? That's where I feel I'm at right now. Just going through the motions. Not caring about getting together with anyone, or making much of an effort. I've been actively dating for a year now, and I'm at a point where all I can manage to…

Mr. January

The month isn't over yet, but Mr. January is. There really isn't much to say about him, to be honest... The first date was pretty good, but the other ones grew increasingly worse. It's not so much to do with him, there was just no chemistry. He's a perfectly nice gentleman, but I was bored.…

Stigma 2.0

This is a big one, folks, and it involves safe sex practices. I was talking with a girlfriend when the topic came up; the topic of whether or not guys ask the girl they're planning to sleep with, or are even currently engaging in the act with, if they're on birth control. Even if the…

The “Meet Cute”

Despite my never-ending love of all things movie related, I had never heard this term used until, ironically, I saw a movie called "The Holiday". Say what you want about the movie- I think it's fucking brilliant. According to Google: A meet cute is a fictional scene, typically on film or television, in which a…
