Single Survival Guide During the Holidays


December 19, 2018

The holidays can be a magical, sparkly, wondrous time to behold in a relationship. And other times–those single times–walking into a decorated room as a single woman over 50 can make you want to punch Santa in the face. If you fall into the latter category this year, here are some thoughts on how the holidays can be survived, even while single. Celebrate You: Shift your thoughts from celebrating alone, to celebrating you. (I know, easier said than done.) But if you take a few moments to





Mix It Up


May 30, 2018

Do you ever feel like you’re doing the same thing over and over again? Of course you do with every day life routines like waking up, brushing teeth, eating, wash, rinse repeat. The REAL question is, is this routine becoming a bad habit? Is your love life a series of bad picks over and over? Most often we gravitate to our “type.” Maybe it’s tall, dark, and naughty or loads of muscles and has to look like Dwayne Johnson (I mean come on he’s hunky!) We all have our thing but sometimes our thing is

WWW.OnlineDatingHelpMeOMG


June 12, 2017

Dating online? Of course you are as are most of the world. It really is a virtual bar and yes it can be just as maddening as going out in person to find love. There are still many candidates to choose from, (most of which you have zero clue if they are going to be great or not) there are still loads of rediculous pick-up lines, and then there’s getting to that moment of “Are you going to ask me out or what?!” We’re exhausted just blogging about it!Wouldn’t it be great to have a magic wand that





No Excuses!


March 13, 2017

“The dog ate my homework.” “I have a stomach ache.” “No, really there’s no school today!” We’ve all used these excuses when we were young and a lot of people STILL use excuses as adults in the world of dating. There are the exceptions when it comes to getting out of a bad date, but when it comes to the important things like planning, transportation, paying etc. – leave those excuses for the kiddos.”Oh no I forgot my wallet!” – Wait, so you’re saying you are going out on a date, trying to fall in





No Thanks A Latte


March 06, 2017

Ladies this one is especially for YOU. Let’s face it women are creatures who love to be wooed, courted, romanced, and, even in this day and age, taken out on a date. Once upon a time men were chivalrous and knew the fine art of “how to take a woman out.” With the rise of technology, this form of courtship has sadly faded. We hear time and time again the popular date of choice is “Hey let’s meet for coffee.” HOLD THE PHONE! Where does it say anywhere that meeting at your local Starbucks equals a





Ex Troubles


March 02, 2017

Your ex has left you, you’re a total wreck, you are desperate to get your ex back. So what do you do?? Here are some things to NEVER EVER do to try to get your beloved back. Remember, you broke up for a reason and most often getting back together simply does not work, especially if you’re down this:The Trap – The absolute worst thing you can do is to trap a person simply because you can’t let go. Women- if you think having a baby is going to make him come back to you, you got another thing





Straight to the Heart


February 23, 2017

When you’re in a relationship and you find that you both are arguing more, or maybe things just feel strained- no matter how under appreciated you may feel, sometimes it’s good to step back and ask yourself “what have I done for my mate lately?” We know… and this isn’t automatic deflection – or giving in. What it is, is gaining appreciation THROUGH appreciation. It’s leading by example. It’s loving how you want to be loved.FOOD – When is the last time you cooked (and cleaned up after) their





Sex Jenga


February 17, 2017

There are many ways to keep things spicy in a committed monogamous relationship. As a married couple with kids we are always looking for new ways to reinvent the wheel. One night after the kids were put to sleep we pulled out some board games, poured a cocktail, and turned on some of our favorite tunes.We decided to play Jenga this time. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s the wood block tower that you have to pull a piece out and place it back on top. It’s extremely aggravating but loads of

What About You?


January 20, 2017

We recently posted a little video on our Instagram dubbing Wednesdays #WhatAboutYouWednesday. Why? WHY NOT! One of the first and most important things to have at the ready when it comes to finding love is YOU.YOU need to be whole within yourself before you can find your other half. Taking time out once in a while to do something fantastic for yourself is important. Believe it or not people can see when a person is lacking self-confidence and esteem. Think of it like a scent that you are giving

Sex First?


July 21, 2016

Everyone seems to be all about the dating app Tinder. Swipe left. Swipe Right. Ok now let’s meet up not for coffee, not for dinner, but to have sex THEN see if we are a good fit. No talking first just foreplay then a bit of the Horizontal Hokey Pokey. Chemistry and looks ARE important to men and women however IS it smarter to test out the “cookies” before looking into the recipe? I mean isn’t that like putting the cart before the horse?It feels like the wide world of dating is going backwards.

A Picture Says A Thousand Words


October 20, 2015

Loooking for love online has become the norm these days. The long lost art of actually getting off the couch and getting all dressed up and looking for “the one” in person has seemed to disappear like the almost forgotten TELEPHONE! Remeber the days when you actually CALLED someone and TALKED to them? Sigh. With profiles online on dating sites and social network pages, the only way we “get to know” someone is by seeing a bunch of words on screen and let us not forget the all to familiar PROFILE





The Truth Behind Why You're Single


October 09, 2015

You think you know, but really you don’t. No, it’s not just because you’re picky, or that online dating doesn’t work, or because you’re not the right body type. Nope… none of those things.
