The Blow Job Obsession

So, a while back, when my blog was brand new I wrote a post about blow jobs titled Sex in the Early Stages of Dating, the Blowjob First Rule.  While this post has brought me a large number of voracious  onlookers it is actually rather disappointing to see that it is my top article by far each day.  I strive to write interesting and unique articles that discuss real issues in the dating world.  My goal with this blog was to appeal to the masses, both men and women, and touch upon issues that everyone can relate to with regards to dating.  I wanted to talk about everything from love and romance to drunken one night stands because these things are talked about and lived each day.  I wanted to write about topics that people could relate to and would want to comment on and instead I feel like the sexual aspects of my blog have become the focus when that was never my intention.

Hooked on a Feeling…

Oh dating, why do you have to be so complicated?!  I have a friend who currently has gone on a few dates with a guy who has literally done everything right.  He pays, he’s respectful, he makes his intentions known, and he is mature enough and looking for something serious–just what she could ask for.  The only problem is, she isn’t sexually attracted to him.  To make things more complicated she recently met and hooked up with a guy she is very sexually attracted to but who is all wrong for her to date.  He is much younger, has never really been in an adult relationship, and likely will not date her.  His friend is a player and he likely will play my friend too but she still wants to give things a try.  What is it with us women that we get ourselves into these situations?

The Dating Game

We’ve all been there.  Sitting by the phone waiting for a call, or as I suppose these days, a text.  Hoping for some inkling from our new beau that he cares or is thinking of us.  Dating can be fun but it is also very nerve wracking and not fit for the impatient.  Sure it is entertaining to go out with different people, have a nice meal and some good conversations, and get to know people to see if there is a connection, but it gets old fast.  What’s not so enjoyable about the dating world, however, is when you finally meet someone you like and there is all that time spent waiting.  Waiting for the phone to ring, for a text to come, to find out if you are exclusive, for sex, for the discovery of the unknown about each other.  It is why I prefer relationships to dating, the comfort level that you attain when with someone after a longer period of time is what I crave, not the anxiety riddled world of fear and rejection that is dating.

Casual Sex Part Deux

I feel like I’ve written about this before but it’s a topic that comes to my mind again–whether or not sex really can be casual.  I have always been notorious for falling for guys that I sleep with regardless of the quality of the sex, length of time knowing the person, and my attraction to the person.  I definitely would not say I fall in love–that is reserved for special circumstances but I tend to become enamored with the person and want more than just that physical contact–I want hearts and flowers as EL James would say.  I know that sex and love and relationships are all separate entities, especially for guys but am I so crazy for wanting something more than a hook up?  I think my unconscious decision to want more with these men stems from some underlying sense of guilt I have for sleeping with a guy who hasn’t wined and dined me much or at all yet.  It is this guilt that I am annoyed with.  I shouldn’t feel ashamed of engaging in consensual safe sex but for some reason I do.  Continue reading

My Foray Into Online Dating

So recently I decided to venture into the online dating world since I have both a male and female friend who utilize the technological means of meeting someone and with some luck.  Neither of them has had a serious relationship come of their forays but none the less they have met members of the opposite sex and gone on dates–and that’s more than I can say I’ve done in the past few months (with the exception of one boy whom I met at a bar with his dad…long humorous story for another day).  Continue reading

The Popularization of Teen Pregnancy

With Snooki being pregnant I have recently started thinking a lot about pregnancy in the media lately.  Over the past few years there has been this surge in pregnancies of teens and unwed women.  I’m certainly not against a woman deciding to have a child without being married but I do feel that a pregnancy absolutely must be planned and must happen when one is emotionally, physically, and financially ready.  Snooki is in no way prepared to have a child and that got me thinking of all the teen moms being glamorized on TV.  There are shows like Teem Mom and 16 and Pregnant.  They seem to give young girls hope that they can have a kid that young and make it work and I just can’t get behind those shows.

Has Marriage Run It’s Course?

We read it in the tabloids every day…”Insert Celebrity Couple Here Calls it Quits.”  Demi and Ashton, Peter Facinelli and Jennie Garth, David Arquette and Courtney Cox–even the couples you think will last split up at some point.  Sure, you can say that these are celebrities and they do not represent the real world but in reality, they do.  My parents are divorced.  Many of my friend’s parents are divorced.  In fact, while nationally the marriage rate is 6.8 per 1000, the divorce rate is 3.4 per 1000 which begs the question–has marriage run it’s course?
