How can I trust myself to pick the right guy?

Over the past 5 years, I’ve been on tons of first dates. More than any person would ever want to, I’m sure. I kept going on first dates though because I was ‘picky’. I needed a palpable connection and a list of criteria to be met. It was meaningless first date after first date when I finally met my long…

Breathe in Love

You giggle softly into my shoulder and my chest swells like it hasn’t in years. Like I’m not sure it knew how to anymore. Like I’m not sure I would ever be ready for again. You caught me off guard and finally, I’m not scared to breathe in love again.   -March 2020

Why dinner and a movie is a terrible first date

Dinner and a movie has been the classic first date idea since the beginning of time. Honestly, I just don’t understand why.   For starters, dinner and a movie immediately forces you into at least a 4 hour date. There’s the pressure of keeping the date interesting and there’s the fear of having to be ‘on’ for such a long…
