The universe has been working hard lately to show me how ultimately fair and good it can be. Upgraded from nosebleeds to floor seats at a Madonna show, awesome work news, winning great tickets to a hockey game, getting carded, and more adventures in Toronto dating. Don’t worry, shit got back to weird after about two weeks…… Continue reading Netflix and no chill
Well friends and neighbours, it seems like lately everything’s coming up Milhouse Steph in the dating world! A coworker gave me a heads up about a feature in this month’s Flare. While the article takes a bit of a dark turn, I will happily serve as the anecdotal lead (especially when the author calls me…… Continue reading What’s your number?
I’ve been thinking about ghosting a lot lately (while listening to this song). Maybe it’s my incessant need to finish a conversation, or my curiosity/need to know, but I find few things as irritating frustrating assholeish as when someone just up and fucking disappears. I think it might be the most disrespectful thing you can…… Continue reading Give up the ghost

He reminded me that ‘bad date stories do not a person make.’ His message came at a good time; I have been contemplating a bit of a break…… Continue reading Go green
I went on a pretty good date the other night. I know, I was surprised too! Although the funny/awful ones tend to get more space here, good dates do happen from time to time. Don’t worry, since it’s me there was obviously a bit of a comedic shit show involved. I received a message on…… Continue reading The name game
I’m a vegetarian cat lady, and I really wished he meant cat (hell, I ate dog when I lived overseas). This. Is. Exhausting. Care to join me while I drink an entire bottle of wine?
Toronto has a reputation as being a difficult city to meet people. Online dating has been a clusterfuck uninspiring as of late, but luckily a couple of weird interesting different events have fallen into my lap. Last night two friends, whom we’ll call Goldilocks and Cinderella because this is my blog and I do what I want,…… Continue reading Love is blind
