I always say that I will try anything once – fly fishing, sweetbreads, men that work with dead people – but I draw the line at sleeping in a car. I am not homeless, I am not destitute, they have come up with a crazy invention called a bed…nope, I don’t need to sleep in a vehicle. I know that technically camping is sleeping in the dirt, more or less, but that is more about roasting marshmallows and drinking around a campfire. I knew that Rob and I were probably not going to be soul mates when he suggested, almost insisted, that we ‘save money’ and sleep in his car on a future trip. For multiple nights. It took a lot of self-control to not yell, “NEXT!” when he threw out that idea. But, other than that, we did have some good times. Read more
One of the many things that online dating has taught me is that, among other things, I am a sucker for a muscular physique. I am not proud of this focus-on-physical-attributes trait of mine, but at least I know it now and can try to use my brain to think around it. The first step is admitting I am powerless.

This just might be one of my favorite spots in Seattle. Yep, I just might have become a regular. That is my arm being twisted.
The first time that I stopped by was to have a drink while waiting for a friend during the Capitol Hill Block Party.

The bartender and hostess were fantastically nice and I just liked the vibe of the spot. The space is one big room with the kitchen and bar and all of it out in the open. Very inviting. Read more
One of my favorite guys, Mr. Andrew Walsh of The Andrew Walsh Show , had me on his program to discuss OKCupid’s new premium search features (you can read an article about it here) that lets users filter out body types that they don’t desire. Oh, and you only want to see super attractive people in your searches, too? They have that covered, as well. We also got into some of the other not-so-awesome parts of online dating. Come take a listen by clicking here!
A girl should question a guy that doesn’t drink but makes sure to supply her with plenty of champagne that is sipped through a straw.
Tim had a very witty profile so I sent him a quick little email saying hello. He didn’t answer me right away but, when he did, he explained that the delay was because he had been in Spain for nine days, drinking and eating tapas. There are worse ways to spend a week. Our initial emails didn’t tell me much except that he worked for a huge local tech company, wasn’t that into sports (hmmm….) and loved to travel. Aside from his lack of sports knowledge he seemed decent so we decided to meet at a Starbucks in Seattle. Read more
