My dating life leaves much to be desired. In fact, to say that my dating life has been a dumpster fire would be putting it mildly. This is also one particular area of my life that has made many friends exclaim “You need to write a book!” So here we go, welcome to my world, one disaster at a time. 

Mr. On the Lamb

For my first story I’ll start with the most recent, and perhaps the most relevant in trying to navigate dating during COVID.  The conversation started innocently enough, but then again, they typically do. The first hiccup came when he started to ‘reassure me’ that should we meet for dinner, he would not dine and dash.Continue reading “Mr. On the Lamb”

Mr. Persistence

People will tell you that persistence is a good thing. Those people have never had to deal with online dating, that takes persistence to a whole new level…and in a manner that is typically not welcomed.
