‘But what about the blog?’ If I had a dollar for every time someone has asked me that over the past couple of weeks, as it becomes obvious that Bogart isn’t going anywhere – despite my bananapants behaviour and drunken shenanigans – I would have a lot of dollars. Well, I would probably have a…… Continue reading Too much too soon
I have such supportive friends. Listen, I get it and it’s partially my fault. I’ve been on so many bad dates that you’ve come to expect a certain level of shit show. No one has cried (okay, that’s a lie — I cried during the opening scene of The Last of Us, but I’m a sensitive…… Continue reading Key to my heart
I use a lot of words to describe myself: quirky, weird, occasionally funny, vertically challenged. One I haven’t used in a very long time: girlfriend. It sounds foreign to me, like something that applies to other people but not to me. I roll it around in my mouth, using different inflections and tones, trying to find…… Continue reading Get it, girlfriend
There are times when I feel so unlike my parents it’s hard to fathom how someone like me came from those houses, let alone how we’re related. When I’m the last one at the table, plate half full because I rapid-fire talked my way through dinner while everyone else sat silently, dutifully eating their meals and occasionally…… Continue reading Father knows best
I managed to wrangle another guest writer and I didn’t even have to do the legwork. When a coworker went on her first-ever Tinder date this afternoon, my friend/coworker Anthony gave her strict instructions to take notes ‘for the blog.’ Not only do I not have to write, I don’t even have to recruit anymore.…… Continue reading Wolf in sheep’s clothing
I’ve received some rather … interesting messages lately. And not the usual type of interesting. Just weird interactions. A gentleman in my phone as ‘Scott Tinder’ reached out to me over the Thanksgiving weekend: I had absolutely no idea who the fuck this dude was. I have an admittedly shitty memory, and this is what my contact…… Continue reading New phone, who dis?
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
I had every intention of going to the grocery store and cooking for the entire week. I’m surrounded by no less than 10 cookbooks; I even went so far as to map out what I’ll making for which meals. Then I realized I have to come up with something to blog about, despite the fact that…… Continue reading You gotta have faith
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?
Holy shit, I had a good date! It’s been so long, I almost forgot what those were like. So good in fact, there are plans for a second date. Miracles happen people (although I’m still waiting for my water to turn into wine). That being said, we all know the bad ones are funnier, so…… Continue reading Let’s get weird
