... I've been married and unhappy. I've been single and unhappy too. I've even been in perfectly wonderful relationships and been utterly miserable. There have been times in my life where I have been more successful and financially better off than other times and I can count instances of unhappiness there as well.That's because my unhappiness had zero, zilch, nothing to do with the external factors of my life during those times. Running away from responsibilities never made me happier, … [Read more...]

From my inbox, a reader's question. Published with permission ... Dear Crescat,I just started dating again after my divorce three years ago. My friends suggested I try Match.com. I signed up for it and met a really nice guy who seems decent. We exchanged a few emails and he asked for my number to call me. We exchanged flirty text messages for a couple of days and then he finally called. I was in class (I go to school at night) when he called so I couldn't answer.I called him back the … [Read more...]

... Let me be perfectly clear; leggings are not mother flipping pants. Everybody needs to just stop. Now. They are not pants. They have never been nor will they ever be pants. Not pants. Not pants. No pantalones.Because this is what happens when allow leggings to be worn as pants...You have just had your eyes assaulted by something called meggings. What kind of man buys these things? Does he have some raiding to do in the forests of Nottingham or is he just looking for that … [Read more...]

Expressing Love Beyond Sex and the Single Life …

Look at this couple not loving each other!

... The fact that I still get almost daily emails about this one post proves to me there's a need for practical relationship advice. It makes sense there's such a need, what with the fracturing of the traditional family and free for all feminism.Remember taking Home Economics in school? Yeah, me neither. The advice I got instead, through my health/sex-ed classes, was that women can "love like men", which is code for being promiscuous. This ideal also hurts men, in that it implies men can … [Read more...]

[SOURCE]Seriously, lady?Have you … [Read more...]

I have no idea what the hell I'm doing

... re-posting my most favorist Mother's Day post. Originally posted May 10, 2012.Ah, Mother's Day. Not my favorite of favorite holidays but it's gotten better. In all fairness the holiday never stood a chance with me. Growing up, my relationship with my mom was strained. So strike one for Mother's Day.Then my first ever Mother's Day as a new mom I mourned the loss of my infant son. Strike two. I went to mass alone and left in tears when the priest asked all the mother's in the … [Read more...]

Dating the “discerning” man…

man-confused-sad-hi

... "I'm discerning a vocation". When I, as a single woman hear those words from a man, especially one I'm interested in or dating, they get interpreted as the Catholic equivalent to "it's not you, it's me". I hear them and move on. In fact, I'd go as so far to say whenever I hear a man is discerning a vocation I immediately place him in my Friend Zone and he becomes off romantic limits. There's a whole slew of men like this on Catholic Match. I'd wager they're over there on Ave Maria too. … [Read more...]

When a man tells you he doesn’t want to get married believe him…

Aw, you're delusional. How precious.

... Men are straight forward beings. They're not really into verbal manipulation and double meanings. So ladies, if you are dating a man and he very plainly tells you that he doesn't want to get married, he doesn't want to get married and he's not waiting for you to try and change his mind.It's easy to cling to the hope that maybe he just doesn't want to get married right now while you continue to get emotionally invested. Maybe after two or three years together he will suddenly change his … [Read more...]
