Love…when life gets in the way

  • April 28, 2011 at 11:05 pm

Well, hello world. It’s been a long, long time since Helen has last written. I have been very busy with the craziest class I have ever had in all of my teaching career, getting my master’s degree, raising a son on my own, buying (and negotiating, researching) a new car, the list goes on and on. Oh, and as for love? Well, sometimes, life gets in the way of that. On top of it all, I have a little mouse or chipmunk that is living in the ceiling of my oh-so-nice and classy looking townhouse (which I pay too much rent for) that insists on doing it’s best tap routines throughout the night when I am attempting sleep. It’s gotten a bit humorous. At the end of the night, as I finally fall in bed with a wet head of hair and not doubting that I will fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow, it’s almost as if someone has turned a spotlight on for that damned rodent and begins the countdown…”Five, six, seven, eight!”

  Oh, life…how funny it is. So, pardon me for yet another absence, but I promise you, I will have more stories soon. I have a date tomorrow, and we shall see what it shall entail. Until then, I wish you all a happy dating…and if anyone knows how to get rid of a rodent in the ceiling besides shooting a bazooka through the wall,  let me know! LOL

Love to you all,

Guest Writer #72: “Make this Easter a romantic one”

  • April 20, 2011 at 8:06 pm

Here is a new article on dating sent to us by guest writers at, just in time for Easter.

Conventionally, Easter isn’t exactly known for being a romantic holiday. The festival of fertility has become increasingly about the children – and their never-ending love of chocolate. Although many couples exchange Easter gifts, Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve and even Christmas all have a much heavier aura of romance.

Courtship is a wonderful thing… Now, you’d THINK I wouldn’t know much about courtship because I’m not dating, but TRUST me…I get PLENTY courted. Even if it’s only in a friendship or flirtation, one person courts the other. Continue reading ‘Guest Writer #71: “Thrill of the Chase”’

Guest Writer #70: “Relationship titles”

  • April 4, 2011 at 3:13 pm

Life sure gives you stuff to blog about…

The last relationship I had where I had someone to claim and he claimed me as well was when I was fifteen years old. I called that guy my boyfriend and I was his girlfriend. I am now thirty-two years old, and have been informed that if I WERE to get into a relationship, I am now too old to call the man in my life my boyfriend. Where did I get this information? Where ALL good information comes from-FACEBOOK! Yes, it was the status of one of my facebook friends. Continue reading ‘Guest Writer #70: “Relationship titles”’
