It is pretty hard to write a dating blog when you are no longer “dating.” But I’ve enjoyed writing it, and if y’all still want to read it, I’ll figure something out. You guys know I am full of opinions! Maybe Mr. June won’t mind if I start seeing other people again? Kidding, kidding. What … Continue reading

Trust

When you ask successful couples, therapists, ministers, Cosmo and other relationship experts about what it takes to make your relationship last you will hear typical answers like honesty, communication, and trust. Maybe you’ll hear advice like, “Don’t go to bed angry,” or “Pick your battles,” and “Learn to compromise.” These are all good, if somewhat … Continue reading

Happy Birthday, Mr. June.

Today is Mr. June’s birthday. I am not a heart on my sleeve kind of girl, and despite writing a very public dating blog, I am very cautious about being an online over-sharer. However, I think Mr. June secretly kind of loves his internet infamy, so I figured a public display of Happy Birthday for … Continue reading

The Beginning of the End?

No, I’m not talking about me and Mr. June, sillies. We’re fine.

In the article, author Dan Slater suggests that online dating is/will be the downfall of marriage, commitment, and monogamy … Continue reading

It could happen to you…

Apparently, whether it’s a New Year’s resolution, the result of being dumped(!) over the holidays, or just feeling the positive buzz of the holiday season, more people join an online dating site in January than any other month. Most of the big ones report a 30%-55% increase in membership (with Match.com reporting that 55% bump … Continue reading

Something to think about…

Thanks, everyone, for sticking around even though the blog entries have become less frequent and less about my horrifying dating tales, since I haven’t had any recently (I have a boyfriend, y’all!). If anyone has horrifying dating tales they’d like to tell in my absence, please let me know. I’ll gladly give you the floor. … Continue reading

Mr. June Speaks!

Here you go guys…Mr. June has answered your questions! You had some good ones. I didn’t write down his answers and it’s been awhile since I conducted this little ┬áinterview, so I’ve noted if I can’t quite remember something clearly or if I might be heavily paraphrasing any of his answers-lest I misrepresent Mr. June’s … Continue reading

Mr. June, Continued

So, send me your questions! It’s your last chance. In case you don’t know what to ask, since the story … Continue reading
