So Being in a Relationship is Like… Hard.

You’ll have to excuse my horrible use of Titanic analogies…. my relationship communication skills really are that bad. My last few years of dating history (hmph…mishaps) have been chronicled here on this blog so if  you haven’t kept up with it….don’t worry you didn’t miss much. I’ve been in a serious relationship for the past…

Don’t Judge Me

Now I know I’ve never been in love before you. I came close once before. I know this because when you’re in love with someone you give them “that look”. You know, when your soul just pours out through your eyes. That look that reveals everything you have stored up inside of you. The vulnerability…

Things I’ll Never Say

You confuse me a great deal. On one hand being with you is the only thing that feels right. It’s all I sickeningly think about. An embarrassing amount. But somehow when you’re not around my brain plays games with my heart. It convinces that I shouldn’t be wasting my time on you. It plays memories…

“Dating to Marry”

So I was watching Sex in the City the other day. You know the part in the series where Charlotte gets divorced and consequently meets Harry who happens to be her divorce lawyer. Well they start dating and then in the season finale Charlotte tells Harry she is falling in love with him. Harry then…

The Pesky “Must Haves”

All of our lives we are told things about ourselves. Girls must be pretty, dainty, and not take up too much space. Boys must be tough, unemotional and successful. If you’re too fat you must work out. If your teeth are crooked you must get braces. If you’re not rich enough you must work harder….

But Like, He Didn’t Go to Harvard

So, as you all know I’ve started “dating” someone, let’s call him T-Man. (see:If I’m Being Honest) And from that post we can all tell that I really like this kid. We’ve been “dating” for about two months now. Nothing official. He’s not my boyfriend or anything. It’s leading to a relationship as far as…

If I’m Being Honest

I’m in the middle of something. The kind of something that makes my stomach feel like it’s in my throat. And I’m confused and upset and mad that I’m upset all at the same time. It’s like I’m feeling every emotion all at once. I don’t know if I am over-analyzing the situation or justifying…

On Commitment and Relationships (or lack thereof…)

The topic of relationships has been on my mind lately. I feel as if people all around me have been breaking up and making up and getting engaged. I swear if Facebook lets me know another person has gotten engaged I might have to deactivate my account… Anyways, it must be spring. Well sometimes when a couple,…

A Mess of Feelings (Pt. 2)

A few days ago I wrote about a drunken mishap with a good friend of mine involving wine (A Mess of Feelings or Something Like it). That was last Friday. I took the weekend (and Monday) to think about my feelings. What it meant. What it didn’t mean. What it could mean. I decided that…
