I Went On Plenty of Fish And Caught A Worm

As I’ve said before, I’m the type of girl who’s pretty much incapable of dating more than one guy at a time. If I like you, you’re it for me — Until I dislike you.

That being said, I had been dating a guy for a couple of weeks, and decided that I wanted to spend my time with him and him, alone. I text messaged the two or three people I was hanging out with here and there, and told them that I had met someone and wanted to see where it was going to go.

One guy, Dave, was really understanding about it.

“That’s cool. I’m sort of seeing someone myself,” he responded.

Dating Someone Who’s Against Marriage And Kids: Yes or No?

I recently wrote a post about Kourtney Kardashian and her unwillingness to marry the father of her child (and future child), Scott Disick.  I asked readers for their thoughts about living with someone and/or having children with him/her, but not getting married. One reader, Heather, wrote the following comment about an unfortunate situation she has been dealing with:

Heather: I’ve been involved with someone for about 2 years who doesn’t believe in marriage or having kids. I seem to question what I’m doing often since the “whole package” was all I ever dreamed of.  I got involved with him because he made me feel an unbelievable way that no one else ever had before. But I had hoped that by this point my happiness and views would be important to him too and maybe he would meet me halfway. Boy was I wrong! Even though I go above and beyond for him/us and was even willing to compromise my views for him, he won’t budge for me. I guess it really depends on the two people, their views and the situation.

Like a million other people, I have been in this situation, myself. I once dated a guy who told me that he Continue reading

Is It Still Putting The Cart In Front of the Horse If You Don’t Intend On A Horse At All?

I’ve always been fairly traditional when it comes to relationships: You see each other, then you see each other exclusively as boyfriend and girlfriend, then you eventually become engaged, then you walk down the aisle and get married, and then you start popping out mini-me’s. I don’t hate on people who don’t do things in that exact order (heavy on the last two), but I, myself, would like my life to pan out that way.

All I keep hearing about is how Kourtney Kardashian refuses to marry Scott Disick. Personally, I don’t give a flying fudge what Kourtney Kardashian does, especially after the whole Kim Kardashian/Chris Humphries wedding debacle (another blog, another blog). But inquiring minds want to know: Why won’t she marry this guy who she is clearly in love with enough to live with and have not one but two children with?

What Are You Hiding?

One of my best friends, Betty, has been on-again-off-again seeing this guy, Kyle, for about 2 years now. And for two years Betty and I have been doing detective work, trying to figure out what this dude is hiding. He shows all the classic signs of being married: He never sleeps over, leaving mysteriously in the middle of the night. He disappears for days and sometimes weeks at a time. He even tells Betty that he loves her, and yet refuses to officially commit.

Now, Kyle does have a son (and full custody of him), which he admits to, and claims to be divorced from his “psycho drug addict ex-wife” and living with his parents.

How true is this statement, though, if he is constantly running out on Betty – both physically and emotionally? If his mother is the toddler’s permanent babysitter, then why is he always leaving her apartment at all hours of the night? Continue reading
