The 10 Most Bizarre Things I’ve Read in Dating Ads

Standard

This is great. And certainly not a surprise.

Sips of Jen and Tonic

1332720493427_9592690I know this is hard to believe, but I’m single. I KNOW! What, with showing strangers my hershey kiss, and accusing random men of being murderers, you’d think someone would have locked this down by now.

I am not actively pursuing a relationship, but from time to time I like to look at what’s out there to see what I’ll be working with once I’m ready for it. Most ads are filled with the same things: age, physical traits, kids/no kids, smoking/no smoking, and a list of things he or she is looking for in a partner. Very benign stuff.

Experts say the key to standing out is to write punchy, attention-grabbing lines. I think the men below misunderstood what that meant.

Giving Tuesday is tomorrow – December 3

Standard

Forget Black Friday and Cyber Monday and think for a moment about the less fortunate among us who aren’t able to shop until they drop. Let’s do something this Christmas and Hanukkah to lend a hand to the sick or disabled, the poor and the hungry living quietly in our midst.

Giving Tuesday is tomorrow. What better way to truly give thanks for all the abundance in our lives than to make a charitable donation with open hands and heart. Holiday spending is already up this year compared to 2012, so I challenge everyone to increase year-end charitable giving to reflect that increase.

Please remember the less fortunate. This time of year can be tough for those in need, especially those with children who can expect a bleak holiday without our help. Visit the website below and support a local charity. All of us can make a difference!

And… your gift is tax-deductible if made by December 31!  God bless you!

On The Beauty Of Women

Standard

This is beautifully written from the heart. I love men who can think this way.

The Better Man Project ™

Before I start this, I want to make something clear. This post is not coming from a man who has had an easy time his whole life with women. In fact, I have had my heart broken more times than I care to admit. I have shed tears, been betrayed in the worst of ways and have been made to feel unimportant, almost to the point where I thought I didn’t exist. And even through all of this, I can still put my heart on the line for women because I believe in one fundamental reality.

Women are beautiful.

Last night, one of my best friends sent me an article and asked for my thoughts. So I opened it up and read the first line. “I’m just gonna come out and say it: I love insecure women.” I closed my eyes, took a deep breath and continued reading on for…

The Wisdom Of Keanu Reeves

Standard

So true!

quote-falling-in-love-and-having-a-relationship-are-two-different-things-keanu-reeves-152292

If you had to add “Right, brah?” to the end of that quote, don’t worry. You’re in good company.

Taking relationship advice from Keanu Reeves is a no brainer. His brilliant work on Point Break should be enough to give him all the credibility. Which means you won’t be surprised when I agree with him.

Being in love and being in a relationship ARE two different things.

They can coexist with the same person but they can also be mutually exclusive. I am in love with my husband most of the time. I am in relationship with him all of the time.

Calm down. I’ll explain.

Being in love is a feeling. An awesome feeling to be sure. All warm and squishy and sigh producing. However, as my husband is known for saying, “You know the thing about feelings? They’re not real.” Feelings ebb and flow. God knows some are…
