This is my old “About Me”. I didn’t want to delete it or the comments that were left on that page on my old blogsite.
I’m a 39 yr old single girl in New York City who dates a lot. That’s right, you read correctly, a 39-yr old single GIRL.
When I was younger, in my early 20s, I was always so careful to say “woman” and to correct any man who was foolish enough to call me a girl. But the truth is, there’s a part of me that equates being single with “girl”. Like there’s something about the very nature of my single-ness that precludes me from being a full adult. Whatever, that’s my issue.
I spent some time looking at other sites before I started this one. And sure enough, there are a lot of dating blogs out there. A lot. There are funny dating blogs and sexually explicit blogs, and lots of blogs that dole out advice. But that all seems kinda easy to me. Easy and false. The real story of dating is full of ups and downs and sudden surprises (of both the pleasant and unpleasant variety).
So here I am. I don’t know a damn thing. I’m not a dating expert or anything close to one. I don’t give advice. I tell stories. And I promise to tell you the truth, to not sugar-coat it, and to be occasionally amusing. I’m guessing there are folks out there that’ll be able to relate.
