Dating Data



by Jan Pitts

March 15, 2018

Do you believe in Fate?  Have you ever had a strange feeling that something was about to happen and it did?  Or have you ever felt drawn by some strange force to do something out of the ordinary that was difficult to explain?  Has anyone ever predicted that something would happen to you and it did?   Well, for some, these occurrences have been very real and there are those who believe that Fate has its way of fulfilling its purpose by letting “a chosen few” in on it before it happens.    MORE

How To

Ditch The

Friend Zone

by Abigail Dye

March 12, 2018

The friend zone is that dreadful place full of awkward hugs and swerved kisses. Being cast into the friend zone happens so fast that you may not realize it happening initially, but once your crush calls you “such a good friend” and slugs your shoulder… it’s pretty clear. A common misconception is that once you’re in the friend zone, you’ll always be in the friend zone. This isn’t true and there is hope – follow these seven steps to escape the friend zone if you find yourself there.  MORE

How To Tell

You’re With

The Wrong Person

The Wrong Guy…

  • “He’s always too busy to make plans to be with me.”
  • “He admires other women openly.”
  • “He doesn’t respond well to affection, and I’m affectionate.”
  • “I don’t feel cherished or valued.”  MORE

Another Side

To Speed Dating

Real People…Real Stories

March 7, 2018

Susan was apprehensive, but she couldn’t help herself.  It had been awhile since a guy had brought her flowers and she ignored her gut feeling.  Though her intuition was nudged slightly by a beautiful gold wedding band he wore on his right hand, which he claimed belonged to his deceased father, she chose not to be “paranoid,” about all the good treatment she was receiving.  After three weeks of dating; she let him move into her beautiful home,     MORE


14 Success Tips

Read This Before Next Date

by Jan Pitts

March 5, 2018

After a lengthy debate about dating with a friend whose brain excels in books, and vanishes at the sight of a handsome male, I decided to make a list for men and women on how to take some of the anguish out of dating, and make a favorable, indelible mark in the minds of all they encounter.  MORE


With Children

Is There A Problem?

by Cheryl Lakes

March 2, 2018

My friend Melissa will absolutely not date a guy who has children, whether they’re living with him or not.  She uses the “child factor” to disqualify a guy on the spot.  Her reason?  “I don’t have children and I’m not interested in dating men who do or competing for his attention.”   She is not alone.  In a recent poll, 54% of single men and women said they would prefer not to date those who have children from previous relationships. There are many singles who share this view. However, there are also strong viewpoints from the other side of the table.  MORE

  • What was your most memorable childhood experience? How has it impacted your outlook on life?
  • What did you like best about high school?   What did you like least about high school?


Is It Hard

To Be

With You?

by Ed Lambert

February 28, 2018

With few exceptions, most people wish to be viewed as “wonderful to be around,” but are you?  If you are easily hurt, offended or disturbed by every phone call or message not returned, then you could be viewed as a lot of work to be with.  Consider your attitude and the little things that bother you.  It could easily distract from your “beauty.”    MORE



After 50

by Coco Diong

When I decided to do this article, I went in search of women over 50 who had never married but found real romance after 50.  Hopefully, their experiences will inspire those who think when romance has not come by a certain age that love has passed them by.  It should also succeed in giving new energy to those who are still waiting to experience that which they have not.  That prince of a guy.  MORE

At The Club

The Tale Of

Two Women

February 21, 2018

Karen had been sitting all evening with a plastered smile on her face, but the guy sitting next to her at the club didn’t seem to notice.  They had exchanged numbers, but Karen had done so against her better judgment.  In spite of an assumed worldliness, she had still not required the savvy needed to discourage unwanted admirers.  When out on the scene, Karen was prone to spend an inordinate amount of time talking to guys who didn’t interest her and then have her sister say she wasn’t home, if they called.   MORE

Ending It…

Can The

Truth Be Told?

by Cheryl Lakes

A couple of years ago, my boyfriend of eight months told me he had to step away from the relationship because he wanted to concentrate on his career (he was an architect) and “frankly”  just didn’t wish to be in a committed situation at that time.  A month later,  I saw a photo of him hugged up and grinning with a  woman in the newspaper announcing their engagement.  I stayed in bed for two days.   MORE

The Bachelor – Week 7

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

by Jakub Dulak

February 13, 2018

The Good

  • Tuscany is a lovely location. Production caught some fantastic footage.
  • A lot of the girls are being very realistic about whether or not they’re actually falling for Arie. Jacquie says it well: “I don’t know if I’m falling in love….or falling in love with the idea of falling in love”.  Jacqueline essentially dumped Arie. That’s incredibly satisfying to watch, seeing The Bachelor himself robbed of his power and brought down a notch.  MORE

Who Do

You Talk To?

“Love” Listening

by Coco Diong

February 10, 2018

Last week was a horrible week for me.  I got no sleep and I was up most of the night on Friday.  The reason being is that I have an ear.  That is, a listening ear.  I am willing to listen patiently while sympathizing with almost every female friend in my phone book as they moan and pine about the loss of love, the unrequited love or the abuse of love.  As of this writing, I am about to pull my hair out whenever my phone rings.




For A Valentine…

by Jakub Dulak

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and with that the pressure to find that special someone is the highest it’ll be all year.   Who wants to spend the most romantic day of the year riding solo?   With only about two weeks to go, guys and girls alike are bound to start scrambling, and many of them will be turning to those trusty dating apps. But you have to wonder…are those apps really all they’re cracked up to be?   Bumble, Coffee Meets Bagel, OK Cupid, and the most notorious of them all, Tinder, have reached peak popularity, with an estimated 50 million individuals using some sort of application a month.   Needless to say, the apps are popular, and convenient.  MORE


Ruins Of


By Coco Diong

February 6, 2018

My best friend’s boyfriend of four years just suddenly stopped calling, answering his phone and showing up.  When she finally cornered him at his job, after three weeks of missing in action, he told her he had been depressed about family matters and he just wanted some time to be alone.  Two weeks later, he married another woman in another state.  As of this writing, she is still taking Valium to sleep at night and drinking a fifth of vodka on the weekends.  MORE

8 Things

Not To Do

This Year…

by M.K. Allison

February 6, 2018

  1. Ignore your conscience. Listen to your first mind and follow it.  Last year, I could have saved myself a lot of grief and heartache, if I heeded that small inner voice, which is always pure and practical.  I was constantly in and out of trouble last year because that voice was mostly overruled by my desire, which was governed by bad judgment and impatience.    MORE

Health Clubs:

Great Meeting

Place Or Not?

by Jovan Tahale

February 6, 2018

The health club has long been a place where people meet and scope the various physiques on parade.  Across the country, singles are also greeting and hooking up for romance, fun or whatever they can agree upon, as they work out  in designer Lycra outfits searching the place with eager eyes.  Caryn says she was thirty pounds overweight and overwhelmed by the sculptured bodies that sped by her on the indoor track.  She joined the health club to add some discipline to her latest weight-losing program, but she was not psychologically prepared for the colorful array of bodies on display.  The health club atmosphere made her feel like a hippo among swans.





February 1, 2018

Cindy – “I met a guy for dinner once on our first date.  He was quite attractive, and extremely interesting.  I was impressed with him overall, and his professed interest in art.  The evening went very well, and when the waiter brought the check, I was convinced that we were mutually enchanted.  But when we got outside the restaurant, he blew me a kiss, without even asking me if I had a lift home.  He never called again, and I still sometimes wonder what I did wrong.  It was obvious that I had somehow turned him off, and that he was too smooth to exhibit when it occurred.”  MORE

How To

Be A Good

Wing Man/Woman

By Abigail Dye

February 1, 2018

Meeting someone new in a social setting can be awkward, vulnerable and embarrassing. A saving grace that never fails the tongue-tied one-liner, is the noble wingman. Pedro to Napoleon Dynamite, Barney Stinson to Ted, Robin to Batman and Luigi to Mario – all pop culture wings that not only helped save the day – but seal the deal. Wing-men and wing-women are always appreciated and plenty of bragging rights come with being a successful Hitch. Here are the seven rules to building a successful wingdom.  MORE

7 Smart

Girl Moves

by M.K. Allison

January 31, 2018

I began this year with a smarter attitude about relationships.  I decided to leave behind the “blisters” and mistakes from last year that still pushed my anger button, and focus on the lessons I learned.  I call them Smart Girl Moves.  Don’t wait to be approached.  If you see a guy who looks interesting, find a way to get his attention.  This calls for a sliver of imagination and a load of confidence.  However, it will not work if your self-esteem isn’t healthy.  I’ve met tons of men by putting myself in a position to be met.  I met one guy who was walking his dog, by simply asking “what kind of a dog is that?”   MORE

What Is


And Should

You Care?

by Abigail Dye

January 28, 2018

With the endless number of social media trends, coined expressions and hashtags already taking over the New Year, the term “micro-cheating” is making a prominent scene. Micro-cheating goes hand-in-hand with the digital age and growing insecurities of young couples.  It is a term that means exactly what you think – “kind of” cheating. The grey area between being nice and flirting finally has a label. Cheating is a concept that is determined couple by couple and usually once the idea is established, ground rules are set. When the word cheating is mentioned, it entails the exchange of bodily fluids. Micro-cheating covers all the ground leading up to that scandalous first kiss.     MORE


On The Rise?

Real Women-Real Stories

by Coco Diong

January 25, 2018

In this time of the #Me Too Movement, statistics show that date rape is on the rise and more women are coming forward to talk, who were victims of date rape and didn’t report it to the police.  I interviewed four women who stated their reasons.  The names have been changed to protect their privacy.  Sherry: “I was at a sales convention with my boss, and I was thrilled to be there, because it was in Hawaii, and it was my first time going to Hawaii.  I was like a little girl in a toy store.  I was twenty-six at the time, and I oohed and ahhed at everything I saw.  One night, he took me to dinner, and insisted that I order lobster, which I did.   MORE

January 18, 2018

Despite the opinion of many, believe or not, there are a great number of guys out there who are faithful, and only have eyes for one woman.  There is a reason for it and here’s the secret.   You can have true romance the way you want it, if you’re willing to employ the following tips.  It took some bangs and scratches along the way to finally grasp these points and apply them, which involved crying my heart over many a “star-studded jerk.” But I finally got it…and they work like magic.  MORE

8 Sure Ways

To Blow The

January 15, 2018

OK!  So…the last two dates either never called again or refused to answer your calls.  You ask yourself…what could be the problem?  Who knows?  Maybe, the following tips might better prepare you for the next date encounter, and improve your chance at being sought out again.  1.  Your personality plays a large role in influencing the “enchantment” factor.  If you’re gorgeous, but dull, your phone will most likely ring for one reason only.  Be clever, funny, and uninhibited.  MORE


A Life Changing


by Nan Strigner

Januaryy 11, 2018

All my life I’d been told that I was beautiful and I took a lot of pride in my looks, but I had never viewed it as an important part of who I was.  I was thirty six years old and had never married, when my grandmother called me to come over for a “long talk.” When she sat me down on the couch and poured tea, I knew she was getting ready to state some truths that she felt needed to be said.       MORE    

God, Sex

And The

Single Life

The Debate

January 2, 2018

I was exhausted.  My friend and I had been debating the same issue over and over again and I was worn out.  I was a new convert to Christianity and had made the decision to no longer have sex with my boyfriend of two years.  She had been in the church for the past five years, singing, tithing and philosophizing on her take of the Bible.  But on this night, she was adamant in her position that sex between two single adults was divinely sanctioned if they were soul-mates or in love as she put it.



“What Holds My Attention”

December 28, 2017


TOM – “A woman who does not try to impress me. She is what she is and she makes no apologies for it. I also appreciate a woman who likes her body and it’s evident, whether she’s large or small.”     GEORGE – “A woman with a wonderful sense of humor. A woman who can be my buddy and my lover.”  GLENN – “A smart woman can lead me down the primrose path. I also enjoy a woman who loves life and enjoys it with or without me.” MORE

5 Dating Lines 


by Laura Gilbert

December 11, 2017

It’s no secret that the language of love isn’t always the most, well, direct.  That’s why so many single people spend hours analyzing emails from dates trying to figure out if “I’m busy at work” is a brush-off, or wondering whether that invitation of “I’ll make dinner for you” indicates a desire to share a whole lot more than a favorite garlic chicken recipe.  How can you figure out what someone’s really trying to say?  To help you out, we got a bevy of dating experts to decode eight common lines so you’ll spend less time scratching your head and more time communicating.

Shock Stories

When “Friends” Go After Your Man

December 8, 2017

Chloe:  “I’m currently going through a divorce and I just found out that my best friend is now dating my soon to be ex.  I caught them in bed together at a friend’s home, and I have never felt so betrayed.  When I confronted her about it, she was arrogant and unapologetic.  She informed me that she had been sleeping with my husband throughout our five years of marriage under my ‘ignorant nose.’  I threw a bottle at her and it hit him in the head instead.  They both filed charges against me for assault.” MORE

Would You Knowingly

Share Him?

by Coco Diong

November 30, 2017

I was in a complete state of shock the day I ran into my boyfriend coming out of a restaurant with his arm draped affectionately around the shoulders of another woman.  In fact, I was in a state of shock for two reasons.  First, she looked better than me, and she was obviously younger than me.  I was 34 at the time, and I’m sure ol’ girl was about 20.  I also knew instinctively that she was more than a friend.
