I hear this quote quite often, “It’s better to love and lost then to never love at all.” That phrase and I do not see eye to eye. While the highs of love bring great elation, the breakups bring indescribable pain far greater than any mortal wound. I am desperately afraid of being heartbroken, but I fear even more the thought of growing old alone. My life would be empty without having a family. I yearn to be a father, though I often wonder if I can be a good one. I was raised by an amazingly loving and supportive family. Because of that, I’m not afraid of commitment. I seek it out. More »
How can I describe you when I only need you to pull me out of the bottomless pit of my self-absorption? If I could imagine you, I wouldn’t need you.
But I want someone who takes life seriously—who reads Jane Austen for the story and not the cover picture of Mr. Darcy with his cravat undone, and who isn’t in the foreground of all her Facebook pictures. I’m sorry, but the picture should be “the Taj Mahal” and not “I went to India.” And most of all, who doesn’t think I’m a snob for saying all that; because a snob is another sort of person who likes things for some other reason (the distinction they give him) than what they actually are.

I didn’t go on my first date until late in high school. Until then, I had been your fairly standard loser, more interested in books than girls; yet I harbored the suspicion that somewhere within me lurked a great romantic. The date (or so I thought) was a success; it was she, and not I, who initiated my first kiss. Later that week, she broke up with me on the grounds that having a boyfriend would interfere with her violin lessons—and in spite of the words of cynical friends, I’ve always believed this was the truth. What motive is too silly to ascribe to the half-formed personalities of high schoolers? More »
I don’t care what video game haters and protesters say - video games are educational. They can teach you better hand-eye coordination, decision making, leadership skills, and, perhaps most importantly of all - dating secrets.
Why else would Harvest Moon be around for so long? Do you really think that it’s the exciting premise of waking up every morning to do chores, raise and water crops, and pull weeds from your farm? Of course not! It’s the dating and courting aspect that makes the game so appealing. Every Harvest Moon game is about two things: farming, and getting married. But you don’t just pick a girl you like and marry her. You have to win her heart, increase her affection towards you, and only then can you try to push your relationship beyond “just friends” to “just married.”
I think some men need to play Harvest Moon, to learn a thing or two. Here are 7 lessons that Harvest Moon teaches you about dating and winning a woman over (and please note that while these are addressed at men, and are about women, most of them can be applied to either sex). More »
From Flauntme: To kick off our special dating series, I’m going to cut right to the chase: a girl needs to be careful when choosing her date-night beauty products. Nothing can ruin a great conversation better than when your lipstick decides to make an appearance on your teeth, or if your date is too busy looking at his reflection in your shiny forehead to respond to your questions. Then there is, of course, the danger of smudging your gloss during that end-of-the-night kiss. Here are three secret weapons to prevent makeup mishaps! More »
So, who is Mr. Right? Well, that definition has changed and evolved over the years I’ve been single in New York. With each new person I meet there is always the possibility of finding something I adore or loathe about a person. So for now, the following description of Mr. Right should suffice…until I am swept off my feet. More »
“To say ‘I love you’ one must first be able to say the ‘I.’ ” -Ayn Rand
It seems like a fairly simple rule to live by and after many failed attempts to love and be loved, I understand fully, the importance of the statement.
In 2004, I picked up and moved from a small college town in the midwest and away from my boyfriend of three years to reach for my dreams of becoming a big city architect. The relationship was, and still is, the happiest, healthiest relationship I’ve ever been in. It lasted another year after I moved away. In the end, it did not work out because I chose New York City over moving back to be with him in the midwest. Yes, my heart still aches over his absence, but he is now married and there is nothing I can do but keep on moving on. More »
Since I’ve never been in love before, I could only paint the most juvenile picture of who I envision Mr. Right to be. So far, I envision Mr. Right to be a person who is nice, can take care of himself, cherishes family, is funny and is someone that is complete. Someone who will never say, “You complete me.” I believe I’m worthy of the whole thing, and never halves or parts of people that ought to be completed. Mr. Right is someone who’s okay with not hearing from me everyday and doesn’t require knowing where I am at all times. I’d prefer Mr. Right to believe in a god, but if not, don’t knock on my God.
Physically, I don’t ask for much. Mr. Right is at least my height or taller and of a proportionate weight. He is also well-groomed with a distinct individual style.
Despite all this, I’m well ware that Mr. Right might not be what I’ve described and I’m perfectly fine with that. If I’m happy, that’s all that matters. More »
