HeadShotMSFunny. Sexy. Inspiring. These are the three words that best describe Melysa Schmitt. Between raising her son as a single mom and designing and implementing social media strategies for Single Edition Media, Melysa shares her brazenly honest humor here on her lifestyle blog Sex, Lies, and Bacon.

Despite criticism, she candidly shares her successes, failures, and misadventures in dating and single parenting hoping to encourage others to follow their own path. Melysa has developed a distinct and sassy voice, allowing her to reach out to fellow single parents with a simple, underlying message: Your relationship status does not limit or define you.
