Chapter 19 Excerpt: The Man Who Talked about His Mother’s Naked Body on a Date

I drove out to the beach, and sat down in a coffee shop. Carl was a little late. While sitting, a strange man who looked similar to Carl’s pictures walked up to the coffee shop. He smashed his face up against the window and looked inside. He looked directly at me and then looked away. He picked up a discarded newspaper, awkwardly dusted off a patio chair, and sat down. As a result of my previous dating experiences, I thought…

Chapter 18 Excerpt: Unbalanced People Who Should Be Called Stalkers and the Police Officers Who Scold You for Dating Them

Internet dating turned me into a fickle person. I continually changed my mind. I’m not dating, I am dating, I only go on coffee dates, okay I’ll go to dinner. I just couldn’t make up my mind about anything. I hadn’t failed to notice I had become fickle, I just didn’t care. A week after being fed up I was back online, because I had turned into a dating junkie. I began exchanging emails with Stephen. We emailed each other…

Chapter 16 Excerpt: Heterosexual Men Who Don’t Like Vaginas

Here are the first few paragraphs from chapter sixteen of my book Till Delete Do Us Part.             My dad called this morning, something that happens a lot more recently. He wants to know about my health and my relationship status.

Dad no,” I said wondering if we really needed to have…

Chapter 15 Excerpt: Stupid Reno and the Dangers of Dating a Man You Cannot Understand

I have gone well over a month without a date and I’m torn between relief and a compulsive need to keep trying. No men hit on me when I leave my house so I must be giving off the crazy cat lady vibe. There is a French café by my house where I love to have lunch. There are a lot of men who buy lunch there but they get their food to go. Women, on the other hand, eat…

Chapter 14 Excerpt: Men Don’t Date Women Who Ask Questions

Chapter 14 Excerpt: Men Don’t Date Women Who Ask Questions

It’s really unpleasant to meet a string of angry men and be slandered. My standards were high when I started dating, but now, not so much. I’m clearly attracted to the wrong things in a dating profile and let’s not forget people lie. There are even people who pay writers to craft their profiles. I devised a list of questions that would weed out men who aren’t serious about long-term relationships or marriage. I came up with the following questions….

Chapter 13 Excerpt: The Most Stupendous Snowhamish, Crazy Names Are Better Than Crazy Dates

There’s a little of everything out there. I was having lunch with Chloe and Grace when Grace told me she had met someone. He was an actor. I personally have always had a no actor or politician rule. They both seem like a lot of trouble to me. “We’ve actually been dating for a few months,” she said coyly. “Why didn’t you tell me?” I asked. “I wanted to tell you in person,” she said. “That sounds ominous.” “Tell her…

Chapter 12 Excerpt: The Date Was Unexpectedly O-ver

It’s real and it’s terrible. Here is the beginning of an unfortunate dating story from chapter 12 of my book Till Delete Do Us Part. Before I started internet dating, I loved the idea of getting to know someone new. I wanted the dates I went on to be adventurous and romantic. I thought I would be hiking, eating exotic foods, and going on hot-air balloon rides. Basically all of the things I do with my girlfriends, but with a…
