About Me

As a busy woman in my late twenties, I’ve participated in my fair share of online dating. But then, hasn’t everyone? It’s become the norm… or so I’m told. And yet, over a glass of wine (or two, or three) my girlfriends still lament their online dating love-lives.

Why didn’t he write back? Should I wink first, or wait for him? Is my profile picture too blurry? Is it too revealing or too plain? Should I tell them I have six cats? Should we go to dinner first or just drinks? Should I wait three days to write him back? And the number one question they ask me is, How did you meet your boyfriend online and make it work?

I’ve been on three different dating sites and dated two wonderful men (one from eHarmony and one from Match), both of whom turned into long-term relationships and one of whom I am still with to this day. I’ve been on good dates and bad dates, been rejected, turned men down, been sent photos of penises and had one man (after I said no to a date) tell me he hoped I’d die in a fire. Rather specific, don’t you think?

But through it all, I’ve loved my online dating experience. It’s not for everyone, but it might be for you. So if you’re just starting out or are a digital dating veteran who needs a little encouragement, I hope these daily tips help. Or at least give you a laugh along the way!

    • Congratulations on finding your Prince Charming! I LOVE hearing that! Online dating can be frustrating at times, but there are simple tips that can help. And, of course, success stories like yours always keep the hope alive! 🙂

    • Thank you Andrew! I checked out your blog and can I just say… HILARIOUS? And as a fellow Italian, I have to admit I make a killer sauce. No pun intended. Well, maybe a little. Thank you so much for stopping by and I’ll looking forward to your clever posts. 🙂

      • Well, I’m blushing more than a blush factory! (Those exist, I assume) Thanks very much for your kind words- they made my day!

        It was my pleasure to stop by your blog- keep up the awesome work, and please, keep in touch!

  1. Thanks for dropping by, yes – it occurred to me how much time I actually wasted on men who “appeared” to be serious when they were just looking for one night stands. Your blog looks awesome btw 🙂 – been meaning to come around to doing something like that myself. I do believe in online dating and agree that all the dos and don’ts by “professionals” online don’t necessarily work.

    • Thank you so much! I think when it comes to online dating (or just dating in general) we’ve all had our epiphanies (sometimes later, rather than sooner). I look forward to checking out your blog as well! 🙂
