Must I Respond to Every Match Email That I Get?

My answer is no! I hear this debate constantly. Surprisingly I hear more men whining and complaining about this then I do women. And I must say that a nagging, whining man is just not very sexy! So guys please let me put this in perspective for you! First of all so many of the guys literally write a 5000 word essay in that ‘about me’ section. Internet dating is so time consuming as it is. If you honestly expect us to read the long boring profile and then take the time to respond and tell you why we are not compatible it is just not going to happen. We are internet dating here. It is understood that you likely sent 25 messages to 25 different women. It is not as if we have some deep meaningful relationship that warrants any type of closure. No response means we are not interested. So...

Casual Sex Anyone?

Sex is great and we all want to have sex regardless of whether or not we are in a committed relationship. I get so many questions from singles about who they should and shouldn’t be having casual sex with. So hopefully my feedback will be useful to you. I have to tell you that I am not a fan of this casual sex. But if you have to do it then keep these things in mind. Is it casual sex or are you being used? I hear so many women convincing themselves that they have a friend with benefits or a casual lover. It is as if putting one of these labels on it makes it more meaningful. Let me be blunt…if he is f!@#ing you while waiting for something better to come along and you are into him…you are being used for sex. If you are both using each other and...

What I learned in High School about Valentines Day!

Stoughton High School back in the 80’s holds both good and bad memories for me. The worst came from that dreaded February 14! Some brilliant school personnel or PTO mom came up with the idea to have these young teens purchase  roses to be delivered to someone they had a crush on. We all waited patiently in or boring classes for the knock on the door. A student would enter the room with a big white box of roses. She would eagerly call out the names of the girls who received a rose and each would run up blushing and smiling as they read who it was from. In all 4 years of high school I never got up to claim that rose. First let me tell you this whole concept is ridiculous! Why would the school even consider trying to teach these students that crushes, dating and love are valuable...

Although I have endless tips on how to make online dating work for you I respect your decision to avoid it at all costs. But speed dating solves a lot of these problems!

Never Ask Her… Why Are You Still Single?

We all have those friends that are single and searching for love. Now I know there are still those who enjoy being single and I fully respect their decision. But let’s talk about those friends that so want to find that perfect relationship. I know a lot about this because when I was in my thirties I was one of those ladies. I remember walking through the mall pushing the stroller of my one year old son. I had not yet accepted my new status of being a single mother. I was angry at the world. And let me tell you if I saw a woman with a wedding ring on, I hated her. And if there was a man carrying her bags I hated both of them. I had great difficulty hiding my anger and knew that being single was not something I was ready to face. I needed my...

The Dog Pound is a Lot Like Speed Dating

To start let me say that all speed daters are not dogs. In fact I own a speed dating company and most of the participants are quite charming. Charming just happens to be how I would describe some of the dogs I met today. It has been about eight months since my old Pitbull passed away. It was time to start thinking about a new relationship! Those looking for love try speed dating or internet dating web sites. Those looking for a dog typically go to the pound or a pet shop. I prefer the pound and speed dating but all are great options. I arrived at the pound and could see all the candidates yelling, barking and trying to get my attention. Similar to what happens during the ice breaker period of a speed dating event. In the crowd of puppies I spotted one that caught my eye. I felt that...

Quick Tips for Match.com

I am one of the many who can actually say that match.com works! I met my husband 9 years ago on this site and I even have a match.com baby who is about to turn 3. Why does it work so well for some and not others? The most obvious reason is attitude! Many folks have decided prior to even creating their profile that it will never work.
