Welcome to my Dating World

I was trying to think of how I might convey how I really feel about the dating scene...what I might be able to compare it to so that women would get an understanding of what it is really like out there.

Just Flattery Or A Red Flag?

Lunch Dates…Sound Appetizing?

September 2, 2013

While sharing dinner the other night, my friend Anna said to me, “Oh, by the way, I’m going to have a great blog for you.”  She confessed that she had just signed up at “Lunch Dates.com.”  At first I thought that she meant “speed dating”, where you sign up in advance and pay a small fee.  […]

When Is It Ok To Lie?

August 23, 2013

Never…Never… Well, Almost Never Why Do People Lie? People lie about their age, financial status, jobs, height, weight, marital status, etc.  They are pretending to  be something they are not…trying to impress.  They lie because they think they can’t get what they want by telling the truth.  What they don’t realize is that most people […]
