Valentines Day? Blah blah blah… drink!

That special day where the world falls in love and everyone is throwing up hearts and chocolates and on top of being lucky in love the bastards get a three day weekend to make us single folks dread leaving the house.  Bastards. And, what’s worse than being alone on Valentines Day…. how about having dinner with your mom who feels sorry for you! That’s right, I had dinner with my mom while surrounded with couples holding hands and kissing while eating their food. I of course, drank about three glasses of wine then when I went back to my apartment had another glass or three while watching Bridget Jones Diary. But I had some delicious food and shared dessert with my mom like the couples surrounding us (pictures below).

So all this weekend I stayed in my apartment like some prisoner and only went out to walk my dogs. I should be ashamed to admit that I haven’t showered since Friday morning, stayed in my sweats, and ate like I was going to the electric chair while watching some more romantic movies and finally finishing Breaking Bad but I’m NOT.

Also, interesting news. I received flowers. Like gorgeous red roses. A DOZEN. But, the mystery person who sent me the flowers never attached a card to them and sent them to my apartment so one, who would spend that kind of money on me and two, who the hell knows where I live? And, I already asked my mom and grandparents because I know they feel pity for me for being alone at 29 and no, it wasn’t them. So I have to go all Nancy Drew and figure out this mystery. I will keep you posted but I also attached a pictures of the roses on the bottom.

So after watching all the romantic movies I could and while watching Breaking Bad, I finally joined eHarmony. Now, I told you I tried all the dating sites but I have been hesitate with this one. I heard you had to answer a million questions and make your profile like a novel… and YES, you do. Thankfully, I was watching Breaking Bad while making up my profile and answering the nonstop questions so I completely didn’t want to kill that old man that I constantly see in the commercials.

The negative thing about this site is I can’t view people, I can only see the people they send me based on my profile. Butttttt, they did send me some possible Mr. Rights so that’s exciting. Of course, I got some zoo animals thrown in but I just deleted them. And, what’s kinda interesting about eHarmony is that you can send the person you are interested in 5 questions from a selection of questions. It’s something different. You can also directly email someone, which I did (cute, 6’4″, and a lawyer!).

I’m still on my other several sites but I figured why not add more stress to my life with eHarmony. I will of course keep you updated and I’m sure I will be meeting more interesting people so there will be more stories to tell.

Cooking Up A Boyfriend

As we all know, I have been on dating sites and out in Manhattan trying to meet Mr. Right but have not yet found him. So maybe I’m just not meeting the type of men I want on these dating sites or not going to the right places in the city so I decided to try something new. I decided to take some cooking classes in the hope that I will meet a single man who wants to learn to take care of himself and not just eat cereal for every meal.

I went to my first cooking class prepared to meet some mature good-looking bachelors. I wore heels, more makeup, washed my hair, and took more time picking out my outfit… it was a waste of time. There were the sickening adorable couple, two sisters, three husbands who want to learn to cook for their wives (most likely their wives bought them the class), and a few single women. No bachelors. And that night, I had to suffer with heels and a dress, cooking for a couple of hours.

After that, every cooking class I went to my hope to find my bachelor slowly disappeared along with my extra grooming. And of course, witnessing couples cooking, laughing, and having a good time annoyed the fuck out of me. I wanted to throw my vegetables at them or toss large amounts of hot pepper in their food.

So, unfortunately cooking classes will not help me find my Mr. Right but that’s okay because now I can learn how to cook for my fat ass and make really good food and maybe one day, when I do meet the man of my dreams I can cook for him.

I posted some pictures of my food, because that’s what I can show to people instead of telling them a great story about how I met my future boyfriend.

Sugar Daddy

This post is about the Sugar Daddy. Now, I know most of you know what a sugar daddy is but for the innocent and pure that don’t let me break the term down for you. A Sugar Daddy is a man who is financially successful and wants to shower his lady (or ladies) with gifts and money while the lady (or ladies) have a sexual relationship with him. Basically, this relationship gives the man the power he never had before the money.

Now, I’m not against the Sugar Daddy if you just want to have fun and get something out of it. Why not, we give it out for free with one night stands and hook ups. But, I strongly recommend not involving feelings in this relationship. It’s just clearly you get something out of it while he gets in you.

Are you wondering why I am talking about the Sugar Daddy? Well, I recently went on a date with a man who wanted to be my Sugar Daddy. I was curious and I’m a lady living in Manhattan who has to pay bills. I do have a 9-5 job but this lady likes nice things and nice things cost lots of the green.

He was what you thought he would look like; older, shorter, and not that attractive. But, he was a very nice man and explained that he is going through a divorce and just wants to have fun without the headache. So, I get that. And, I respect that. He was willing to help me with my rent and get me little gifts. Great, right? Well, right now at my age (29), I’m looking for more. I’m ready for a relationship where I can see a future with someone. I want the whole Happily Ever After so I had to decline Sugar Daddy’s offer of sexual favors and more money in my bank account. I am focusing on looking for Mr. Right and not Mr. Right Now. So back to the drawing board and to the dating sites.
