WELCOMING FALL AND THE DRIVING GLOVE

As someone with a fetish for high-performance cars…one thing I love are driving gloves.

THE DATING CONUNDRUM – REDUX

I have a good friend who is single, male and v. eligible and yet, all he does is complain about how difficult it is to meet women – despite the fact that he lives in a young, beach community. In solidarity, I joined a dating app for a 1 month trial. Listen in to myContinue reading “THE DATING CONUNDRUM – REDUX”

PUTTING THE “GENTLE” BACK IN MEN

This blog post was originally written in 2010 from an old Typepad blog I had. It has since been adapted. If there is one animal that should be on the “extinction list” it is, the gentleman.  I’ve lived in NYC for 16 years now and have been been a girlfriend, a friend with benefits, aContinue reading “PUTTING THE “GENTLE” BACK IN MEN”
