Nightmare Date #37: It wasn’t a REAL crime I went to prison for!!

  • November 23, 2010 at 9:58 pm

It is a total wonder that Gigi still finds the energy or hope to continue dating online, with all the nightmare dates she has been on, or has narrowly and luckily escaped. When she begins to talk to a new man, and he asks her how her online dating experience has been, Gigi has to try very hard not to snort out loud or succumb to a Gigi version of Turrets. What does drive her to the point of screaming is when the man tells her that she sounds simply wonderful, and then dares to ask the most exasperating question of all: Why is a woman like you still single? Arghhhhh and blegh!!! Really? Seriously? Read on, and you will see just why Gigi is single!! Nightmare Date #37: It wasn’t a REAL crime I went to prison for!! – continue reading…

Nightmare Date #36: Jean-Claude and the date that never was

  • October 31, 2010 at 1:24 am

Can a nightmare date last over two months, and only be a nightmare for the last three weeks? So that the first wonderful few weeks end up looking more like a nightmare disguised as a fantasy? Gigi feels as though she has just woken up from a long dream, nay more like a coma. She was hopeful that Jean-Claude might be the one, but he was just another one to fool her romantic longings, and hopeful dreams. In the end, he was like most of the men Gigi has met along the way: all talk and no show. All big dreams and fancy words in the beginning, and too crass and crude at the end. All glitter and no gold. No substance. Mere whisps that fizzled away to nothing, so that one is left wondering why they ever thought there was actually something there.

  • October 31, 2010 at 12:47 am

Sometimes finding a success story to write about is not the easiest thing for Gigi. She has friends breaking up left and right. They meet somebody, and then it doesn’t work out. They are together for a while, and something goes wrong. It seems harder and harder to make things work. But some people do make it work out. They stick through the bad, to get back to the good. And that is what makes for a good relationship… to not give in right away. Success Story #36: Elena and Jaime – continue reading…

Gigi once saw a movie, Good Luck Chuck, in which every time that the actor ends a relationship with a woman, she finds the man of her dreams and gets married… so that women begin wanting to date him thinking he will bring them good luck. At times, Gigi feels like she is the female version of this!! Success Story #35: Oscar and Wendy – continue reading…

Nightmare Date #35: Too much too soon

  • October 15, 2010 at 7:36 pm
