How a Man Cares…

I remember my grandmother telling me about her father saying how a man cared for his horse is how he would care for his woman. As society changed, the caring for a horse turned into caring for a car. Some men take good care of their cars. They wash them, and wax them. They get […]

What a great idea… A company in Tokyo is allowing employees to take paid time off to deal with the end of a relationship. Most people jsut call them sick days, or personal days, but I think most people have been guilty of doing this. Read more about heartache leave – and a couple of […]

So… let me start this off by saying that I am not engaged, have not been engaged, and am not calling off an engagement. I just saw the headline on CNN (yes… CNN) and thought it was an interesting question. Their take… well, it depends on where you live and the circumstances in which the […]

The Emotional Passport

While I was reading my post about emotional baggage and luggage, it got me to thinking about how we carry our pasts with us. We all talk about how our hearts have been broken and left scarred. I have a new proposition to make. Instead of counting those as scars, lets look at our hearts […]

I’ve been thinking about relationships a lot lately. Maybe its because most of the strangers I encounter seem to feel the need to comment on my relationship status. I’ve gotten a lot of “Your boyfriend must have so much fun with you!” or “He’s a lucky guy” comments. Even the guy in the Sonic drive-thru […]

"A Girl Like You"

I’ve heard a fair number of guys lately say “I wish I could find a girl like you.” Well, newsflash guys… you found me. Here I am. Single. Available. Not Attached, as one of my t-shirts says. I don’t really know what it is that makes me so appealing to these guys. I’ve been told […]

A Friend Like That…

Cheesy as it sounds, I was watching old Will and Grace reruns tonight on Lifetime TV, and saw a commercial for their new show “Side Order of Life.” The blonde lady is dating someone new, and she says “If something is too good to be true, it probably is.” Her best friend just looks at […]

Lying to Ourselves

“The worst lies are the lies we tell ourselves. We live in denial of what we do, even what we think. We do this because we’re afraid. We fear we will not find love, and when we find it we fear we’ll lose it. We fear that if we do not have love we will […]

Tara and I were talking tonight about relationships – and about how fast some of the relationships around us seem to move. People go from barely meeting to spending long weekends together in the course of a few weeks. I, for one, am not really that type. Maybe its because I’ve gotten burned before, but […]
