Raise your hand if someone has ever told you that you are too independent and that’s why the guy you were dating broke up with you. Raise your hand if you have heard that your breakup was due to the fact that he was intimidated by you.. Raise the roof if you were told that your relationship ended because you’re too pretty for him… By now, I’m assuming that most of you sexy singletons have run out of hands (I know I have). The list of relationship rationalizations goes on and on. and on.. and on… And you know what? The items on the list are the reasons why we strong, sexy singletons are such a great catch. Instead of letting those qualities make us re-think our strength and successes, we should take those rationalizations, make a list of our fabulous features and allow them to increase our self-esteem, instead of allowing them to make us doubt our achievements.

Generally, I much prefer hanging on patios associated with bars, as opposed to friends’ patios, as there is much more opportunity to meet someone when out and about versus hanging out on someone’s balcony. However, it’s always a pleasant surprise when a new friend or associate drops by unexpectedly, isn’t it?! What was supposed to be girls night on the patio turned into a full-fledged session of patio party makeout madness for me!
Are they or aren’t they? Picky, that is. Mostly, men seem to be thought of as being far less choosy than their female counterparts, however new research suggests that dudes really do care more than we think. According to relationship researcher Jane Hoskyn, there are 10 traits that turn men off. Take note of the following success saboteurs:
1. Wearing Too Much Makeup – One of the reasons that I am not currently a lesbian (having given it much thought recently) is that I cannot picture myself making out with someone who’s wearing makeup. A little bit of lip gloss and eyeshadow? Fabulous. A smokey eye, thick mascara, buckets of blush and lashings of lippy? Forget it.
2. Playing Hard To Get – Playing coy? Cute. Playing as hard to capture as a slipper koi fish? So common and cliche.
3. Being On A Diet – Being fit and fabulous? Sexy. Being fragile, feeble and faint? Not so spicy.
4. Curvalicious Clothes – Got a bangin’ bod? Wear clothes that flatter your figure and make him want to see more of your curves. Got a barely clad butt? Wear trainers so that you can chase him as he runs away.
5. Being One Of The Boys - Burping, farting and football? No, no and no.
… He loves me, he loves me not. He loves me.
I am a romantic. The dictionary describes me as: being preoccupied with love or by the idealizing of love or one’s beloved. Yep, that’s me. The dictionary also describes me as: fanciful, impractical and unrealistic. Fair enough.

Here’s a tip: Stay single!
Oops, no, it’s not OK! Come on, now – this never looked like it was built to last. Of course, it was extremely entertaining. A Hollywood actress. An NBA star. Did I mention that 80-90% of all pro athletes stray? What was she thinking? She had to beg him to marry her. He’s French. He’s a basketball great.. He’s 28…
I will not have to bother myself with such worries – no making of a list and no checking of it twice. I will not have to poll my male friends for ideas on the perfect gift and I will not have to deal with crowded malls, screaming children, runaway strollers and a frustrating lack of parking (due to the fact that all the spots are taken by minivans full of screaming children and runaway strollers…).
At the end of each failed romance, I usually take the time to wonder if it will be the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back, the point where I’ve had it up to here or the breakup that broke my tolerance. What I’m trying to express to you is that I wonder if he will have been the guy who pushed me to the other side. You know, the other team…..
Obviously, this has to do with my mother, the incorrigible June Cleaver Blogshaw. As many of you have requested more stories about her antics, here you go.
