    Moving Forward

    Well kittens, I’m back to square 1. [I feel like an episode of Sex & The City as I type this from a rural Texas hotel room that I’m in for work.] I am now accepting applications for exciting dates!! I haven’t actually pursued dating in what feels like years now (wondering if I ever actually pursued dating at all)… but after convincing someone I was emotionally unavailable over the summer then being devastated when he found someone else, I realized that I was ready to move past the trauma of my previous ex that wore me down to nothing. Let’s do this Denver! omg… I forgot how to date…

    Dirty 30 | goals

    I have been procrastinating writing HARD lately. Honestly, because it feels vulnerable and I’m afraid to put myself out there in a way that has potential to be ridiculed. This fear is in direct contradiction though to what I feel I have learned with approaching a new decade, to give less fucks. I’m ready to throw caution to the wind and put my words to “paper”. I have started this blog post at least 3 times now from, 3 weeks into my 30’s, 6 weeks… ok, so over 2 months into my 30’s now…. I feel that I can finally accurately depict what they feel like. I realize it’s just…

    Bluebird Theatre & Kismet

    I truly believe that everything happens for a reason, sometimes things work and sometimes they don’t, but it all serves a purpose in the end. Yesterday I crossed some wires in my brain and confused my dates causing me to either miss my flight to Minneapolis or miss my friend’s show at Bluebird Theatre. Thanks to a lot of persistence, my United gold status, 4 flight changes, and 2 phone calls to customer service, I ended up with the perfect flight allowing me to do both.┬áMy friend’s show was very important to me and making sure I upheld my plans with Bobbie was also very important to me. It feels…

    Relationship Anxiety & Growing Up

    As an almost 30 year old, it may be difficult for some people to understand how and why I am not ready for a serious relationship. I have found that many people can’t seem to admit that they aren’t as well, either because they still crave companionship (without obligation) or because it’s simply too hard to articulate. Here is my attempt at articulating exactly why I am not ready to give someone what they would need from me in a relationship without taking something away from myself. I love my life now. I have an amazing group of friends, family, & co(space)-workers, an exciting career, and an adventurous travel life.…

    Dating in Denver

    I’ll start by saying that I am far from an expert at dating but to be fair, who is? (and who would want to be?) My back story, similar to most singles in their late 20’s/early 30’s, I was in a serious relationship during my more ‘formative’ dating years from 20-26 and as much as he and I still get along, oddly enough, it just didn’t work out. I needed to learn more about myself as an individual before committing myself to someone for life… and I think he needed it too. I went rogue for a few years while I traveled the world obsessively and had a couple (honestly…
