Dating Apps in 2017?

Dating, HWMMS, Randomments

Dating Apps in 2017? Haha. I typed in the word “dating” in my Flickr search bar and what came up? A photo of “First Date Skirt.” And then of course I had to look this up on All Things Jennifer and this post —–made me laugh. Also, I could EASILY substitute the name Mark with […]

Drew Stafford

Dating, HWMMS, Sports

Drew Stafford was my first Hockey Crush. When I started loving the game he was HOT and not just in that adorable baseball cap. My first date with HWMMS  (which ended up being my last first date…) was at a Sabres game where Drew Stafford had a hat trick. Every time the Sabres scored, I […]

Calling All Those In The Dating World

Dating, HWMMS

Fuck Yes or No If you’re in the grey area to begin with, you’ve already lost. Let me ask again: Why would you ever be excited to be with someone who is not excited to be with you? If they’re not happy with you now, what makes you think they’ll be happy to be with […]

My Last First Date

Dating, Personal

Last year, I went on my last first date. He Who Makes Me Smile and I met for dinner at Fat Bobs then went to the Sabres game. And there we watched Drew Stafford score a hat-trick (and I got my first, second and third kisses from my future husband every time Drew scored.) My […]

Fatty Lip

Dating, Personal

Fatty Lip I’s got a case of “when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible” -its. I’m realizing I don’t really like this living two different lives thing. Weekday City Jen vs. Weekend Country w/ He […]

Escape! (Nothing to do with Pina Coladas)

Dating, HWMMS

ESCAPE! Last week was a busy, stressful, emotional, exhausting, frustrating, eye-opening week. Friday ended badly. I made myself physically sick with upset. He Who Makes Me Smile fetched me from the city, listened to me vent the entire car ride to the country and then took care of me for the rest of the night. […]

5 Tips for Dating a Blogger?

Blogging, Dating

Five Tips for Successfully Dating a Blogger I saw this article and thought this would be fun to read…but I became quickly annoyed (offended) when I realized the article assumes THE BLOGGER IS A MAN. Grrrrrr. Therefore, everything you’ve learned to-date about how to keep a man happy, like the old adage “the best way […]

Johnston’s Restaurant

Dating, Food & Drink, Western New York

Johnston’s Restaurant. Another country restaurant, this time Johnston’s out in the Ransomville. Hearty helpings! A bar full of snowmobilers taking a break from the cold and grabbing a beer! He Who Makes Me Smile had a plate of thick meat…prime rib. I ordered the “Green Bay” salad. Hahahaha. To me the best part of the […]

Dating Lessons Learned


Dating Lessons Learned Hmmmm. I’ve dated quite a bit this past year…and I have learned a few lessons I would like to share (Disclaimer: Not all lessons learned are necessarily universal…) 1. If while kissing someone you would rather be kissing someone else (or no one in particular just not him) you should probably be […]

Penguin Necklace

Dating, HWMMS

The nice man I’ve been dating the last few weeks bought me a very, very nice Christmas present. A sterling silver diamond/amethyst penguin necklace. One day he asked me if it was too early to exchange Christmas gifts…then he told me when he told his one girlfriend what he was thinking about getting me (jewelry) […]

Dating, Personal

Thursday night? The BFF took me to Gabe’s for a few stiff drinks because I was nervous that I was meeting up with…*He Who I Cannot Resist* for dinner. *He Who I Cannot Resist* ? Yes. *He Who I Cannot Resist* *He Who I Cannot Resist* and I have not hung out since 2005. We […]

October 17, 2010



Done. Puppy dog to the curb. Sad thing is? I was making myself sick trying to do it. He’s a nice enough guy and well intentioned but not the person I want to be with. And I’ve known this for quite sometime…why did it take me so long? I tried more than once and he […]

Man Stuff!


Man Stuff! Mr. Club has spent the last two nights sleeping over at my place, even though we haven’t been able to spend time with each other after work. Tonight we have a dinner date and a night at the bookstore/coffee shop planned. Being a very good planner, Mr. Club packed for two nights. I […]

Mostly Happy


I haven’t seen Mr. Club since last Wednesday night. A few texts here and there over the weekend but nothing much. Then again he isn’t a huge texting kind of guy. Over the past week I had a chance to catch up with LOTS of friends I haven’t talked to in a while. When asking […]

Maybe the wizard had a point?

Dating, Personal

Maybe the wizard had a point? I’m somehow reminded this week that my wizard, over a year an a half ago…told me I needed to confront someone about my feelings/not feelings. Instead of confronting? I stopped going to the wizard. Wait…not for that reason alone, however… Maybe there are underlying feelings that need to be […]

Left in the cold?


Left in the cold? Mr. Ohio texted me this morning. A few times. Now I feel really odd because I have somewhat blown him off the last week or so. I called him last Sunday to check in and say hello but outside of that? Nothing. Which makes me a little sad, but… Well, Mr. […]

He REALLY likes me…


He REALLY likes me… Two weekends ago I went out to a goth club. A club I’d been at only one time before when my friend’s boyfriend from out of town played there with his band. I should have known better. Enter last Friday. I’m out with my sister-in-law and her friends sharing tales from […]

Playing Cupid?


Playing Cupid? I’ve played cupid in my day, maybe once or twice. However up until this point in life I’ve never been the person that someone set up. Until now. My soon-to-be former FWB seemed to think his good friend in Ohio would be a good match for me.  And on a recent trip to […]

My life is insane.


My life is insane. All week we have been hosting the International Guitar Concerto Competition and there are classical guitarists from all over the world here in Buffalo. Of course they happen to be handsome, talented YOUNG men. (Of course!) I’ve been working on this competition and yesterday we had the semi-finalists perform concerts all […]

Reminder: Not beautiful.

Dating, Personal

Warning: I blame PMS. Somehow tonight, I’m sitting in front of the computer crying as I type out these thoughts. Crying. Even worse, crying over he who I once thought I was going to marry. WTF? I hate womanly hormones. I see no other reason for my behavior tonight. Where do I start?

My Perfect Man?


My Perfect Man? The man I’m seeing just emailed me this. “I’m your perfect man when I dress for lodge.” And then sent a photo of him dressed at lodge (he’s a Mason.) “I’m not wearing my glasses here though…” Men.  Can’t…can’t…get rid of them if I tried.
