On Love and Dating

I have gone on a date every Tuesday night for the last 12 (but let’s be real ya’ll, it’s really been 13) weeks.  I’ve been taken on historical tours, visited Water Treatment plants, met public figures, and argued over semantics.  I’ve gone to baseball games, museums, gardens, non-profits, and eaten more locally made food than […]

On Love and Filling the Empty

“Hello Mary.” She welcomed me as I entered a small building that smelled of fresh paint and carpet.  It was a Monday.  Big life events rarely happen on Mondays, but I had the distinct feeling that this could be very important.

On Love and Nitrous

“Are you comfortable?” the dentist asked me through his surgical mask. “You’re about to slice open my gums and remove my teeth.” I thought, “What person is going to be comfortable with that?  And I can’t see your face so stranger danger is definitely a cause for concern right now.”  I attempted to reach for my […]

On Love and Linking In

I almost completely hate the movie “He’s Just Not That Into You” on the principal of “he’s just not that important” except for a small fondness for the part when Drew Barrymore says, “I had this guy leave me a voice mail at work so I called him at home and then he e-mailed me […]
