Jack-Hole, Party of One

A handsome man gave me his phone number last night. Actually, he wrote it on my arm and added a smiley face underneath. I feel sorry for his wife. Seriously. I find myself losing hope in ever finding a good, honest, faithful man because of people like this. I tried not to make a big…

Icing On The Cake

I could make some man very happy one day. I love God. I clean. I bake bagels from scratch. I’m passionate and affectionate and I can find the humor in almost anything. I am strong and supportive and protective of my people. I love bourbon and a good cigar. So, yeah. I could be an…

Back in the day, to get a man all you needed was a camel and your virginity. Your dad and his dad exchange livestock and hold each other’s sandals. Bada Bing, Bada Boom. You’re married. These days, it’s a little more complicated. First, you have to find someone who doesn’t make you throw up when…

Dammit, Ginger!

I have a crush. He’s handsome. He’s warm and funny and he says sweet things to me. We have a lot in common. We get each other’s movie references. I get that little hitch in my stomach every time I see him.

Guard-rails, bumpers, and airbags

Things I am grateful for today: 1.Coming up with a post about gratefulness when what I really wanted to write about was how the whole no sex before marriage thing ruins my dating life. 2. The acceptability of yoga pants in public. Every now and then, it’s nice to be super cash. Yoga pants and…

Unforgettable

What has God forgotten to do in your life? There must be something. Are you waiting to get married, get pregnant, get a promotion, win the lottery, or get your adopted kids from the Congo? What is the prayer, the one desire that causes a little ache in your heart whenever you think about it?…

Dear Channing Tatum
