Love In

An Instant!

It Can Happen! 

by Jovan Tahale

March 16, 2018

Never get discouraged Ladies!  Though sometimes the date prospects may look slim,  believe it or not, there are a lot interesting guys out there looking to make a real match.  You’ve just got to be in the right place at the right time…and you never know where that place may be.  I met my honey pumping my own gas, and he offered to do it for me.  He spoke to me and said, “a woman as pretty as you shouldn’t be pumping her own gas.”   And he’s been pumping mine ever since.  I talked to several women who described how they met the man of their dreams.     MORE

How I Stopped

A Stalker

by C. Mayfield

March 12, 2018

I was sick in bed with the flu when my friend Janie called me crying.  Our friend Cheryl had just been murdered by her boyfriend.  He had been stalking her for months, and our greatest fears were realized when he went to her job and shot her four times as her co-workers stood and watched helplessly.  For me, it was the second time I had personally experienced such horror.  MORE

10 Things To Know

 by Jovan Tahale

February 28, 2018

You read the newspapers, watch the news daily and record mentally what’s going on out there in the streets.  But do you see yourself as a potential victim?  Crime is everywhere in all neighborhoods across the country and if you’re scared to be out alone, you should be.    MORE

Memorable Moments

“Best Time Ever On A Date.”

February 19, 2018

Charron – “A group of couples joined my boyfriend and I when we rented a cabin for a weekend in the country, where there was a fireplace and plenty of snow.  We played in the snow, told stories, played games, danced and listened to great music.  I haven’t had that much fun since I was a teenager.”     MORE

“The Worst Advice

I Ever Took”

February 15, 2018


  • “I walked up to a handsome guy at a party and asked him to dance, after being urged on by my girlfriends, and he told me in a very condescending tone that he didn’t dance with women.”
  • “After discovering my husband in an indiscreet position with my best friend, my mother and sister advised me to hang on for dear life, because I would lose too much if I divorced him.  I forgave him and hung on and nine months later, he divorced me and married her.”  .MORE

18 Ways

To Tell

He’s In Love

by M.K. Allison

February 12, 2018

We are constantly in a pickle when we’re emotionally attached to the opposite sex.  We spend our nights, days and weekends wondering if he cares…feels what we feel…feel what we want him to feel, etc.  We spend breathless moments interpreting, misinterpreting, rationalizing, guessing and hoping the love we want so badly is finally here.  But is it?  MORE

Just In Case…

You Can Be

Your Own


 by Abigail Dye

February 9, 2018

St. Valentine was beaten with clubs and beheaded on Feb. 14, 278 A.D., according to legend – and History.com. Some say this is the reason we celebrate Valentine’s Day. Some say it’s because of a capitalist scheme to increase consumer spending, some say it’s the day birds choose their mates.  No matter the original reason we buy boxed chocolates and flowers, Valentine’s day is unavoidable…even for singles. Every store you walk into and every post that you see will be promoting V-Day, so it seems singles have two options. MORE

Week 6: The Witch is Dead!

by Jakub Dulak

February 7, 2018

Another week of broken hearts on the Bachelor. After a wild, roller coaster of an episode, we’re back to bring you the good, the bad, and the ugly.  The Good

  • Paris is actually an exotic location for once. The B-Roll shots this episode were a nice escape from the usual American shots.
  • The outfits worn at the Moulin Rouge were somehow both sexy and hilarious.
  • Bekah M. in blond was ridiculously attractive.   MORE


High End


Big Bucks To Find The Perfect Mate

by Sierra Silverspoon

February 1, 2018

One of my closest friends, making big bucks got fed up “with all the rejects” from the local dating scene, and decided to go the personal matchmaking route.   In six months, she spent $8000.00, and met five guys who were supposedly the crème of the crop, as it related to substance and success.    Unfortunately, she didn’t match with any of them.  One was successful but physically unsuitable, and one was a con man looking for a victim.  With the remaining three, there was no “chemistry or mental connection.”  MORE

Week 5

By Jakub Dulak

January 30, 2018

Another week of the Bachelor is upon us, and the drama this week is as hot as the Ft. Lauderdale sun shining down on all of our contestants. Once again, we’re here looking at the good, the bad…and the ugly.    The Good:  Chelsea’s endearing backstory and her taking the position of best possible match.  This week was all about Krystal, so before we delve into her “glitter bomb” let’s take a look at one of the few other ladies who got some solid airtime this episode: Chelsea… Chelsea seriously won me over this week. There was nothing particularly noteworthy about her in previous episodes.    MORE

When He/She

Wants Out…

And You Don’t

by Jovan Tahale

January 29, 2018

The two people sat in from of me and refused to look at one another.  The woman was antsy and couldn’t sit still as tears glistened, without dropping from her eyes.  In her hand, she held a photo of the two of them laughing as they hugged one another.  He spoke first.  “I just don’t want to be with her no more,” he said as he stared at the wall.  “To be honest, I no longer love her.  And I haven’t for a long time.  We just don’t share a common ground.  I don’t like what she likes and she insists that I be this person she wants me to be.”   MORE

How To

Date A


By Abigail Dye

January 24, 2018

Romance in the workplace can be very compelling – and dangerous for so many reasons. Forbidden love tugs at the heartstrings of many, from the hopeless romantic to the stone-cold womanizer. It makes sense that people who work together are drawn to one another. The average American works 34.4 hours a week, which is plenty of time to get to know co-workers. 38 percent of American workers admit that they have dated a co-worker during their career, according to a survey conducted by careerbuilder.com. So, if you’re feeling a little heat in the workplace, don’t worry – you’re not alone. Keep in mind these six simple rules to keep you, your love interest and your human resources department happy.  MORE

Week 4

By Jakub Dulak

January 23, 2018

This week’s show begins The Bachelor’s World Tour, meaning Arie and the ladies will be traveling all over the globe on dates.  First stop, Nevada. How exotic.   OK, the location wasn’t the most exciting thing ever, but it did allow us to get to know more about one of the contestants that I’ve favored since the season premiere…that being Kendall. The quirky, creative taxidermy nut is one of the most colorful characters we’ve seen this season, and it was great watching her practically turn a group date into a solo date simply by being so comfortable in the outdoor element.      MORE

Dating & The

Money Issue 

Who Should Spend What?

by Jake Kyles

January 18, 2018

For the last two months, I had been going out with a woman who chose me on a day when I felt like being chosen.     I was sitting in a club nursing a drink after a heated breakup with a girlfriend, when this statuesque woman with long flowing hair, came over and asked me to dance with her.  She claimed it was to win a bet with her friends.  But I didn’t believe her because women hit me on all the time, and the gleam of interest in their eyes is always the same.

Land That

Dream Job…

by Jennie Wilson

January 11, 2018

I have always imagined myself as a chef.  While I was taking calls at the insurance agency I worked for, I was thinking about my next recipe for shrimp scampi.  Ever fantasize about quitting your job and going after your dream career?  Do you spend too much time at work on tasks you hate?  It may be time to switch.  Most of us don’t stick with the same occupation forever.   How can you maximize your chances of success?  Here’s advice from those who’ve done it-and those who’ve helped them through.      MORE

What To Do

When He’s

Not Your Type

by Theo McNee

December 28, 2017

It has been my experience that most men and women have a hard time expressing their lack of interest to the opposite sex, when they cannot return the sentiment.  Instead of being frank, or diplomatic (this word only applies when one is pressed for “the proper response”) most of us stutter, stammer or lie.   Example:  A guy approaches a woman whom he finds attractive, and after making his interest known, makes the common request for a way to have future dialogue.  (By the way, this example is in a social setting)  He asks for the phone number.  She, however, is not at all interested for whatever reason.     MORE

12 Things

Guys Wish

Girls Knew…

by Theo McNee

November 30, 2017

After the first date and no communication…never call and ask why we haven’t called you.  You might not want to hear the answer.

2.  We don’t always want to do what you want to do.  It has nothing to do with how we feel about you.  There are just times when we prefer to be in our own little world. Sometimes, we’re not thinking about you.  Live with it.  We cannot behave, feel, think or talk the way you think we should.  Believe it or not, we are not the same.  Allow for our differences, and give us breathing room .

How To Tell When The 

“Spark” Is Gone…

The Men:

“…it only takes 5 minutes to say goodnight at the end of a date.”

“…kissing “hello” is no longer a natural gesture.”

“…you see physical flaws you didn’t notice before.”  MORE

The Truth

by Jake McNee

November 1, 2017

I think it would help if women understood that they really don’t have too many clues about what really turns a guy on and what doesn’t.  Most women think that sex is the ultimate for us, but few understand that it’s not the end-all.      MORE
