Q: Your blog “can best be summed up as a hodgepodge of uncomfortable first dates, bad sex, creepy men and offending dating profiles” can you please tell us more.
I think that’s a pretty decent synopsis of what my blog is about. I write about things that most people are afraid of admitting out loud. But, honesty breeds freedom and I thoroughly enjoy the validation I receive from women and men alike when they can relate to a blind date gone wrong or any situation that may arise when trying to find a suitable match.
Q: So what was your worst date story?
I once drove down to San Diego (a two hour drive) to meet the most gorgeous navy S.E.A.L. Half way through our first drink he excused himself to use the restroom and never came back. It wasn’t until I received a call from his girlfriend a week later that I realized why. Apparently, she just happened into the same restaurant bar that we were in. Not only was he a cheating bastard but I also found out he had a record for domestic violence. I was more irritated that I’d driven 4 hours roundtrip when there are plenty of men to ruin my night here in LA.
Q: Best advice for men who are attracted to bitches? What about women who behave like them?
Men that are attracted to bitches are lame. They also usually happen to be the same men that claim to detest drama yet still know how to push the right buttons in order to create it. Women that behave like bitches are equally lame. There’s a fine line between being honest and just being an asshole. Saying “I’m just being honest” doesn’t excuse being a dick.
In my blog, some of the things I write can be construed as bitchy. However, these same things are often times the inner thoughts going on in my head and are never actually uttered to the men I may happen to be thinking them about. This is why I blog. So I can vent without having to go postal on some poor schmuck that may not have the slightest grasp on how adults are actually supposed to act out in public.
Q: New York has plenty a love story. You just happened upon a police officer. How does one go where few woman has gone before?
I’m a huge advocate of strong women. We are all beautiful and intelligent in our own ways. You won’t see me out burning my bra anytime soon unless it’s for a source of warmth but we certainly need to embrace that we now have options and freedom that women were not afforded 30, 40 and 50+ years ago.
When it comes to finding your own love story it really is all about the mindset. Whether it is an old haunt or a new destination, if you are comfortable in your own skin and have a smile on your face it won’t matter if you’re at the Getty Museum or the 99 cent store. Trust me, I’ve been hit on at both. With the right attitude any place can be full of opportunity. The trick is to take advantage of that and go after what you want.
Q: Friends with benefits – why do you think one person often gets hurt in the end?
Because they don’t see it for what it is. Don’t be fooled into thinking that just because you are fucking you are dating. If it were meant to be more then it would be. Some people can handle that sort of arrangement, some people can’t. Realize which sort you are and deal with it. Just because you aren’t ready to be in a FWB situation doesn’t make you naïve and just because you are doesn’t make you a whore.
Q: Do you think Cinderella should have banged Prince C before settling down and if so why?
Absolutely! I’m a firm believer in test driving any and all cars before purchasing. I’ll just leave it at that.
Q: Why should everyone visit LA? What about New York City?
First and foremost, everyone should visit LA because I’m here. Also, from what I understand, at the moment, the rest of the world is covered in snow and here in LA it’s approximately 74 degrees and sunny out. In February. Oh, and we have the Kardashians.
Reason to visit NYC? That’s easy. The Firemen.
Q: What do you think is T.M.I. in the online dating world?
Pictures of peni. Just because I may have responded to an ad or an email and used such alluring phrases as “Hello. How are you?” and “Thank you for your interest” let me assure you, they do not and will not ever somehow translate into “Please send me a picture of your penis” or “Nothing would brighten my day more than a picture of your cockring.”
Q: At the end of the day it’s you and.......
A vodka tonic, a pink snuggie and my ego. I really need to get out more often.
