So, I should have known that writing 31 days wouldn't work this year. Just with where I am in life and what's going on, it doesn't lend itself to that. So, I am going to add those posts to my "Adventures in Dating" page - which will now be "Dating & Relationships". And, why is … Continue reading I have an announcement!!

5 Things I’ve Learned About Me from Relationships
Recently, I wrote about how relationships reflect us. If we are paying attention to this reflection, we can learn some things about ourselves. Perhaps we learn how wonderful we are to others, even if we don't see it. Perhaps we see that maybe we have an area of weakness we need to work on. Perhaps … Continue reading 5 Things I’ve Learned About Me from Relationships
Books to Read: Relationship Edition
Relationships take work. Hard work. It almost doesn't matter what kind of relationship: friendship, romantic, parent-child, co-workers. Each of these relationships involve work. Though, maybe none so much as those of the family. And, this is especially true of Romantic-spousal relationships. Through the years, I have read a ton of books/articles on relationships. Dating to … Continue reading Books to Read: Relationship Edition
What I’ve Learned
Man, I really need to get into this writing every day groove...and I know I will. Tonight, I got to spend time with my fella. But, he lives in that weird middle distance away from me, so he had to make the 2 hour trip home. I can't wait til there's no distance. After he … Continue reading What I’ve Learned

Honestly, though, if I am ever going to be blessed with the relationship mentioned above, i can be nothing but myself: honest, loyal, who.I.am.
Finally participating in 5 Minute Friday again. The rules are: write for 5 minutes. No over-thinking; no over-editing. This week's prompt is: Middle Ready? GO "Oh, he's married, so he's off the table", I joked at a restaurant with some friends. "Man, you just make it so hard to set you up", a friend joked back. "No, no. … Continue reading “The List”
“Does he love Jesus?”
The question: "does he/she love Jesus?" should never be an obsolete question when discussing relationships - it should be the most important. So, does he love Jesus?
Waiting For Capture
"Certain things will catch your eye, but pursue only those things that capture your heart." - Ancient Native American Proverb Confession time? I have a list. You know, the list... I've called it my "Him List". Honestly, it isn't that hard to track down...it resides at the back of my Bible, a tradition I started in … Continue reading Waiting For Capture
It Started with a Resolution…
This is the first of many Lovely Sunday posts. As I've written before, 3 years ago (at age 23), I made a resolution to go on my first date... Not just a first date, but THE first date...ever. And, like I've said before, that didn't happen. Not that year or the following year, so last year, I … Continue reading It Started with a Resolution…
