But I’m Not a Hooker

Conversations with People

Some men have absolutely no sense of decorum when it comes to online dating. One such instance is Mr. Jonah Goldsteinmanberg (if you don’t get why I’m calling him this, you and I do not share the same sense of humor. Maybe it’s for the best because I can be offensive). His profile proudly boasts that […]

Burying Your Bone in My Yard

Conversations with People

I’m not an ageist. I really, truly do like older people and enjoy their company. However, when it comes to the dating arena, I sing a different tune. I prefer my beau and I apply for social security and medicare together in the far future. I’m also skeptical of Life Alert’s current technology, so I’m waiting […]

Unsolicited Advice

Conversations with People

I’ve been reared to respect my elders… regardless. I’m actually very polite and courteous to everyone I come across, believe it or not, especially to those who are old enough to be my parents. My sister lectures me on making people earn my respect and to not base it on age; she does have a point because sometimes […]

Thank You, Social Media

Conversations with People

My best friend is fortunate that she no longer has to deal with the trials and tribulations of dating now that she’s happily married. However, the lovely memories of singledom of yesteryear still haunt her from time to time, especially when talking to me. Bestie: there was this guy who stopped answering my calls, and I found […]

Bait and Switch

Conversations with People

I’ve seen countless guys who post outdated photos alongside more recent ones, and that makes me wonder why they don’t have better judgment. Do they expect me to think, “Aww, he used to be good looking!”? Or do they want me to see their potential should time suddenly travel backwards and they miraculously lose those flanking love […]

No Thanks, Fat Cat

Bad Dates

When it comes to telling little white lies or being straight up deceitful, it doesn’t matter the gender, ethnicity, or sexual orientation of the people online. They ALL do it to some extent- except me, of course. Apparently, my sister experienced the same dating bullshit in the gay world too. Surprise surprise. Not. Sis: I met one […]

Sugar Daddy

Conversations with People

I normally look for men to date who I feel are on the same footing as I in terms of age, education, and economic status. The only hiccup there is I haven’t found anyone I jive with enough to make it serious. Frustrated? You betcha. No problem; cue roommate: Roommate: All these fucking guys are like […]

You Look Familiar

Conversations with People

There are times when I’m sitting at my laptop casually watching cutesy puppy videos or reading hilarious comments on Yahoo! articles (I don’t really spend time reading the actual articles because they’re shitty excuses for journalism. the comments are what’s entertaining) and find myself wanting another form of distraction. That’s when I sign onto my dating profile and open the chat function and […]

Can’t Keep Track

Conversations with People

It’s not that I like to spread myself thin when it comes to dating. I just find myself talking to more than one guy at a given time. Many men go MIA, stopping communication but then reappear later, or they just don’t seem serious so I don’t take them seriously. Whatever the combination, I just don’t […]

Can’t Be Too Safe

Conversations with People

I understand there are tons of shady people who waste others’ time, especially on online dating platforms. I also understand that’s why some people want to quickly verify the person on the other end. Still, hold your freakin’ horses, man! I like to have at least a couple of conversations via IM to see if there […]
