The Ultimate Dating Basket Giveaway


March madness is among us!  Coming from a University of Florida Gator, this time reminds me of the years I was there when we won 3 championships in 2 years (2 basketball and 1 football).  In commemoration of great times, I felt it was time for a giveaway. I’ve talked about them so many times in my blog and in…

Online Dating – You’re Doing It Wrong


Smartphones and apps have opened the floodgates of free online dating. And why not? You can meet lots of interesting people online – more than you’ll meet in a loud, smoky bar. You can filter them to make sure their age, appearance, background, and interests are compatible with yours. And it’s fun. Research firm GlobalWebIndex reported in 2015 that 91…

I’m Officially Mrs. Comedian!


I’ve officially been married to the Comedian for a month and two days.  I know I’m a bit late on relaying my experience but what better time before a long weekend to indulge in some wedding highs and lows.

The Truth to Matchmaking


It seems every time I meet a guy friend of The Comedian’s, I get asked, do I have any single girlfriends.  The answer is, yes, I do.  Whether I feel they are an appropriate match for that person is a biased opinion. Hooking people up or matchmaking is a science.  You can’t just hook two people up all willy nilly.…
