Okay, here is the deal guys. I’m a friendly, fun, attractive, single woman. I am out there and open to meeting new people… especially men, but lately it seems like you are all talk, and no action!
I refuse to spend my summer exchanging messages on some dating site just to find myself sitting home every weekend because not one of you guys who claim to be interested in me have bothered to ask me out!
I mean, just today I have received two DMs and one in-person compliment on my looks and questioning how I am still single.
Do I intimidate you!? Do I really have to make the 1st move? I just don’t get it.
So, rather then waste another moment of my life investing in messaging back and forth for no good reason I’m putting my dating profiles in a time out!
Do you hear me? Go to the corner and think about what you have done to me (and countess other women I’m sure) and then let me know when you are ready to step up and show me some ACTION!

It’s been around for a while, but I’ve never had the courage to go alone so when a single co-worker mentioned she’d be interested in going with me I got wicked excited!
We had originally planned to hit one this week after work, but after some serious consideration we decided that we would need more time to warm up with a few cocktails before facing the other singles, so we’re checking into a weekend session.
I am taking this approach to meeting someone very lightly and I think it’s going to be more likely I catch a good buzz then an actual man, but I am game all the same.
So now I need some advice on what to be prepared for. I know I should be armed with some ice breakers and questions to ask. I don’t want to say anything out of line, nor do I want to come off too corny in my limited chat time … I need suggestions!!
Has anyone been speed dating? If so, has it been a success or just something fun to do? … or worse… a total disaster!?
Thanks in advance for the feedback!

I created this site quite some time ago with my BFF Kat with the intentions of relaunching The-Broad-Cast, our podcast, as a more topical blog/podcast to our changing lifestyle, but then Kat went and found herself a boyfriend, leaving me stranded alone in the dating pool, and I never quite found the motivation to follow through on my own. (Yes, I’m being overly dramatic here. Is it working, Kat?)
So here I am. Beginning again with this new blog venture, which I intend to be part personal experiences, part re-posts of other’s useful & informative dating and relationship info, and all archive of my adventures in Digital Dating.
I officially entered the world of Online Dating in June of 2009 and it’s been quite a learning experience… not just about dating, but about me… who I am and what I want in my life. Much of what I knew about dating was so far off from the reality that it’s totally boggled my mind!
Everyone has an opinion and when it comes to my dating life there are no exceptions – my friends, my family, and especially my Mother have volunteered advice and guidelines in which I should be adhering to in my search for …well… who ever it is I am seeking.
Honestly, I am still not sure what I want or need. I’m just putting myself out there in hopes that he will find me and when he does my heart will leap, my eyes will fill with stars and little blue birds will serenade us… ok, maybe not, but I feel like when I meet someone who it right for me I will just know it… or so I hope!
So here I am. Single & ready to Mingle… Hahaha I know that sounds so cheesy, but I just couldn’t resist!
