What Fifty Shades Of Gray Didn’t Tell Me

S&M with Bacon

I wondered if either one of us was going to have the balls to make a move. Over an hour had passed since we started watching football, and there was still a decent amount of space between us on his couch. After weeks of talking, all I wanted was for him to kiss me so …

Just Because I’m A Single Mom Doesn’t Mean I’m Less Than

Less Than Three With Bacon

This April will mark my five year anniversary as a single mom, and I’d like to think I’ve come a long way (baby)  since I was first delivered the news that my ex was leaving me for another woman. At the time it was devastating to hear. Honestly I didn’t even know how the hell …

Leveling Up In Self-Love

Confetti with Bacon

Leveling up is a concept in games when a character experiences some sort of progression that usually involves unlocking new abilities, skills, access to new items, or as a benchmark of how far they’ve come.

Be Amazing With Bacon

I often wonder, “Why not me?” I witness people in love each and every day. They’ve settled down. They lean on each other and have found a way to make the pieces fit. Yesterday a picture popped up on my Facebook timeline of a woman who had just gotten engaged. She was showing off her …

Closed Book Happy Bacon

People come, people go – they’ll drift in and out of your life, almost like characters in a favorite book. When you finally close the cover, the characters have told their story and you start up again with another book, complete with new characters and adventures. Then you find yourself focusing on the new ones, …

Reckless

Bacon Gifts

I deleted my OKCupid account this evening in an attempt to be less reckless – this is after recently trying to date (I use the term loosely) two different men I met on the online dating site. One was the guy I talked about in my last blog post, that seemed like he could be …

Adventures in OKCupid. Again.

I have a date next week. With a guy that is seven years younger than me. That I met on OKCupid. Chances are this won’t end well, but I’m going for it anyway. I’m going to pick out a cute outfit, make myself up, and head into this date with an open heart and an …

A Brief Open Letter To The Love Of My Life

Love Of My Life Plus Bacon

Hey you. I know you’re out there somewhere. Hell, we could’ve crossed paths already and I just don’t know you’re the love of my life yet – which is pretty cool too. I’d like to get some things out in the open while we’re both waiting for the stars to align for us. Some of …

matchlogo_grad

Yesterday marked the first day of Fall. Where the H-E-double-hockey-sticks did Summer go?! For reals. All joking aside, I find any change of season is a great time to reassess your life and make little or big changes to follow your dreams. If you’re a single parent that’s ready for love, why not take this …
