In school they give you a transcript to prove you learned your lesson. In relationships, how do I know if I learned my lesson? There’s not exactly a diploma for it (unless you call a marriage certificate a diploma, but then what can be said of divorce papers?)
One woman handles an engagement bomb from her ex-boyfriend by stalking his fiancee on Facebook and MySpace.
The dust has settled and Mr. Hot and Cold and I are back to being the friends we were before... almost. He may have rejected me, but the idea of losing me seemed to shake him up. Is he regretting his choice? Now that I am setting my sights on finding love, can he handle it?
I feel like I spend a lot of time letting interns know what they ought to be doing. However, most of these strategies are in direct response to an alternative that loses money. I was having a great chat with a fabulous colleague about money-losing strategies yesterday over lunch. That wonderful chat inspired me to write a blog on the topic.
We have entered into the second half of Summer and the heat is still on. With triple-digit temperatures within reach each day, it seems like the only options for staying cool are to stay indoors in front of the air conditioner. But why get stuck inside when you can enjoy the sun while staying cool?

“Life is like a golf course, and a sand trap runs through it” is quintessential Charles Schultz. The cartoon creator who gave us Snoopy and the ensemble of peanut-sized characters that we all grew to love often alluded to these life lows in his popular comic strip. You can mope, cry or scream at others like Lucy Van Pelt but at the end of the day the only person who can dig you out of the rut is yourself.
There is a reason that the month of August was named Sextilis in ancient times, and we at Single Edition are all for having fun in the sun. But before you venture outdoors, you should consider these dangers that go beyond getting a little sunburn where the sun usually doesn’t shine:
This summer heat up your attraction
I never thought I'd be facing 40 and be single...I mean, really, who does? I figured I'd marry at 23 and pop out two or three kids before 30. My toughest decision of the day would be whether to take the minivan to the Girl Scout meeting or participate in the neighborhood carpool. That's not exactly the path I've taken--or the cards I've been dealt. (Insert whatever cliche is appropriate here.) I've dated guys. In fact, I've dated guys long term. I'm not talking months long term--I'm talking years. Years of agonizing. Waiting. Weeping. Well, you get the drift. So, here I am. I turned 39 last week and have been out on countless dates. First dates, second dates, third dates...yet, nothing has clicked. So, I figured I'd write about it. Not in a mean way, because, god knows, I can get pretty mean. But, in a thoughtful, maybe even funny way. (Disclaimer: I know I'll get mean, I'm just trying really hard to be positive. Hmmm...maybe herein lies the problem?) So, here's to a new year. A new hobby. A new positive attitude. Or, maybe not. (And WHY is there no option for an image of a cat and an empty tub of Ben and Jerry's?)
