How To Avoid Sketchy Online Daters

The dating scene can be a pretty slippery slope, and most people with dating experience would gladly vouch for that. However, when you throw the Internet into the mix, the whole thing becomes even more sketchy. See, prior to the rise of online dating sites, the entire dating process took place in person with the exception of blind dates. It usually happened in a public place like a coffee shop or a park. Someone would catch your eye and spark your attention, introduce themselves, start a conversation, and if you felt a connection with the person, you’d either ask them […]

How Many Dating Sites Do we Need?

There are Christian Dating Sites, there are Jewish Dating Sites, there are free dating sites, there are free to lure you in then you have to pay to talk to members dating sites and much more. I give up, how many dating sites does one need? If I were a person looking to date I would have no clue where to start, but in all honesty I am cheap and would probably totally start with the free dating sites and then wonder why in the world I am only finding men who want one thing, “my personality” of course ;-).

Meet New People in Your Area

Not that long ago I had thought about whether or not there was a site online much like a dating site where you could find friends, rather than relationships. I mean here I was a married mother of three and neither of us had any really close friends. I thought it would be great to meet new people that are married or in a relationship and have children so that we could get together once in a while, let the kids play together and have some adult conversations. I never found a site that offers that, but if you are […]

Settling … For Children’s Sake

This post is a continuation from Comfortable Relationships. I always get various comments when it comes to relationship issues, especially when it pertains to marriage. One thing I am a firm believer in is that no one should settle regardless of children, marriage or family views. When I got married, yes I got married for what I call “life”, however, I am also not going to sit back and let my marriage be that of a content relationship because it’s comfortable, content and just plain easy for the sake of my children. My oldest child was born to myself and […]

Introductory Agency

Recently my friend Dwan aka @MommaDJane went over to London I believe and we have discussed the different words used over there. I can’t imagine trying to visit from America and hearing words used in a different context than you are used to. For example, if I were in the dating scene again I would call the online sites, dating sites, however I much prefer the term used in the UK,  introduction agencies. Do you agree that the term introduction agency sounds more appealing than “dating site”? To think you will be introduced to the man of your dreams, or […]
