Are You In The Lonely Hearts Club Too?

I stood at my car in the pouring rain, luggage in hand, watching the bus drive away when it hit me hard. It was deep, it was overtaking, it was everything at once. “I am completely alone here.” I recently moved from Maryland to Florida.

Interview: Stephanie Rische – I Was Blind (Dating), But Now I See

When talking to Stephanie Rische, I noticed something rather quickly that I admired greatly: her ability to be graciously honest. Often people will try to cover their struggles and portray a stronger version of themselves for the world to see, but Stephanie didn’t do that because she understands the importance of sharing transparently with others. When we’re open with our …

What I Wish I’d Known As A Young Single Woman

When I was growing up (and likely you as well), I loved fairy tales. Back then, Princesses weren’t brandishing bows and arrows or knocking out the prince with a frying pan. They were simply in love, and being endlessly pursued by the token of their affection. Of course, by definition they were fairy tales, and so we all grew to …

When You’re Not Loved Because You’re Not Beautiful

I was an ugly child. At least, if you’d asked me, I’d have told you that. I was reminded of it in a thousand little ways. The way my dad ignored me when I’d try to talk to him. The way he shook his head at everything I did. The way he never came to any of my performances. The …

Why Men Are Harder To Understand Than Women

Trying to decipher the male mind and their intentions is a lot like trying to understand a foreign language without an interpreter. Much like my experience in Latin class in high school, I have been unable to figure out either, even after hours and hours of intense study. I mean, I am 30 after all. You’d think I’d understand men …

Tall, Dark And Handsome

Tall, dark and handsome. If there was a way for women to create their perfect match, I bet the majority would throw these three adjectives in the mix. Women swoon over tall, dark and handsome celebrities, they visualize what the tall, dark and handsome fictional characters in their latest romance novel really looks like, and they dream about the tall, …

How I Started Caring About Organic Babies

Everywhere you turn these days, a new organics-only grocery store or farmer’s market pops up. The phrase buy “fresh and local” rings out from blog posts, cooking shows and bumper stickers, on every other foodie blog, Barefoot Contessa episode and Subaru Outback. Bring up genetically modified foods or pesticides on a Paleo Diet Internet forum, and you might get your …

Why You Should Find A Mentor

“If you’re not cheating, you’re not trying” is something someone told me shortly after I joined the military. They weren’t saying that I should actually cheat. They saw me spinning my wheels with little to show for it and tried to teach me a lesson in productivity. They were saying, if you’re not talking to people who have successfully done …
