Apparently He Didn't Know...

Navigating the dating world leaves me with many questions. Questions like: Why did he say that? What did he mean by that? Does this mean that he’s interested or not interested?  Who initiated our last conversation, is it my turn to call? 

So many questions that I decide to put together list of moments that left me saying hmmmm…….. Maybe he didn’t know  

A little bit of insight into my world as a single women:

Apparently he didn’t know when getting to know me good morning texts mean nothing without a follow-up of genuine conversation. 

Apparently he didn’t know when you only call me on the drive to or from work, I understand that you are only talking to be because you are free to talk. You are not making time for me. 

Apparently he didn’t know when I say Goodnight at 2:15 pm that mean you just said something wrong. You done messed up buddy!

Apparently he didn’t know hitting is a good thing. Hitting or touching while I’m laughing  is my way of telling you that I’m interested. This is for all the brothers who say they are clueless to if a woman is interested.

Apparently he didn’t know liking all me selfie’s on IG leaves me saying what??? Is that your way of telling me that you like me?  Send me a DM next time telling me: I would like to take you out sometime, when are you free?

I know I’m not the only one experiencing these situations. What didn’t your partner or husband know? Or maybe it was you that that didn’t know something. Tell me about it.

Apparently You/He/She /We Didn't Know………….


LinkedIn to Get LinkedUp?

I haven't found love in my everyday life, and I’ve always been opposed to online dating. I’m more a fan of traditional dating, nothing is sexier than having a man approach, hold an engaging conversation, ask for my number and then follow up with a phone call. Plus the thought of meeting some one online scares the hell out of me (too many Law and Order and Criminal Minds episodes).

I said I was going to make more of an effort to meet someone and my girlfriend has been telling me about this dating app called LinkedUp! No hiding your identity like on other dating sites. On the LinkedUp! site your profile is linked to your professional LinkedIn profile and as my girlfriend puts it "at least I’ll know that he has career" – I’m sold!

Using the LinkedIn app I will be able to see where he works, where he went to school and also if we have any connected contacts via LinkedIn. I like to think that if you have a LinkedIn profile you value your career so the quality of men maybe different from the ones I’m meeting on the street (crossing my fingers).

I’m really considering downloading the app and creating a profile. I’ve even been updating my LinkedIn profile just in case I do decide to finally give online dating a shot.

I’m thinking that of all the online dating sites, this would be the safest dating site. What do you think would you date someone you met on LinkedIn ?

Dear Friends & Family

Why don't you believe me when I say I'm happily single?

Yes I'm 31 with no kids or a husband in sight but I'm happy. Really, I am. 

Why is that so hard believe? I've made peace with it. I didn't dream it this way but this is the situation and I'm not going to let it consume me nor am I going to compare myself to other people. 

I know you love me and you want the best for me. I need you to make peace with the situation too. The 1st step is to refrain from asking/telling me the following:


1. When are you getting married?
2. You're too picky. That's why you're single
3. Don't you want children? When are you going to have some babies?
4. At your age you should be married. So and so just just got married
5. All men are dogs. Just pick one and have a baby

In the meantime I'm working on me and making good use of my time as a single woman. Comparing myself to other people and their accomplishment will kill my spirt and block my blessings

Only talking with the people in blue: iPhone users only please

Not that dating is not already complicated. I've somehow complicated it even more for myself. Not only do I want mate to be: 

-Single! Single people dating single people (you would think this would be an understood concept but its not)

-Have a relationship with God

-Ambitious/Driven

-Comfortable within own skin

-Non- Trifling, A respectable man (not be a lying, cheating, leading double life basted) 

I want you to be an iPhone user too. I want to be able to see that you are in the process of forming your thoughts to send me a reply text, iMessage (only iPhone users will understand) 

Him being an iPhone user is one less obstacle we have to deal with in a new relationship.
