Yesterday was a draining day.  After dating “Richard” for a few weeks and beginning to think he was great, I got a call from his girlfriend of a year and a half asking who I was and why... read on

    I am generally an optimistic and trusting person.  I choose to believe that people are inherently good and will give them the benefit of the doubt unless they show good cause that I shouldn’t.  Lately however I find myself becoming a little more cynical, which is heartbreaking. ... read on

    I am 43 years old.  (That hurt a little bit.)  I can remember quite vividly when my mother turned 35 and thinking how I thought she was so old at that moment.  My dad threw her a party and everyone seemed so lame and very old.

    My son has been on holiday with his dad for the past 11 days.  He will be home on Saturday and even just writing that here makes me want to scream I’m so excited.  I miss him so much that it actually hurts.  Last night the silence in my home was so deafening that I ended up... read on

    When you are in the beginning stages of dating I think there is a lot of thought and effort that goes into selecting what you are going to do.  It’s easier to choose an activity when you are in a relationship because it’s more of a negotiation.  When it’s a boyfriend we say... read on

    I have a certain “type” of man that I tend to be attracted to.  He is first and foremost Jewish.  In terms of the physical, he is tall and bald with light eyes.  He is funny, understands sarcasm and has a brilliant sense of humor and silliness.  He has a love of children and Judaism... read on
