Far from normal

I always wondered when it would happen, and it surprises me that it took this long: My online harasser found the blog. He may be reading this post. He may be digging through the archives for more ammunition to try to bait me with (favourite tactics include racist remarks, slut-shaming, and insults about my body,…… Continue reading Far from normal

To say the lease-t

I promised you a series about apartment hunting, and a series you shall have. Spoiler alert: we found a place, and we get keys in 12 (holy shit!) days. I’m not moving until mid-month, and he has his place until the end of May, but still: Although our search was relatively short, it was still plenty…… Continue reading To say the lease-t

Home is where the heart is

Finally, all those years of online dating are paying off (they technically paid off when I met Bogart, of course, but now I can put those skills to some sort of practical use)!

Not only did…… Continue reading Get freaky

Well, I would probably have a…… Continue reading Too much too soon

Only happy when it rains

This morning I had one of my patented Steph Freakouts™. Oh good, we haven’t had one of those in a while. Welcome, old friend. Friends always tell me they don’t know how I keep putting myself out there. I say it’s because I don’t know any other way to be, but I wonder – how…… Continue reading Only happy when it rains

The more the merrier

The problem with good dates is they typically don’t result in good stories. Or at least not the kind of stories people come here to read. Luckily (for whom I don’t know), I managed to combine the two earlier this week. I met Bogart on Tinder (where else, really?) and he’s already a reader thanks…… Continue reading The more the merrier
