2010: The Year of Zero First Dates

Well, here we are. 2011 has arrived and it's only natural to look back on the last year and think about what we did and didn't do. What didn't I do? Well, I didn't stick to my blogging resolutions (duh). But also, 2010 was the first year since I moved to New York that I didn't go on a single first date. Not one. Zero.

You may be thinking, "Well that explains the lack of new material." And you're right...but it's no excuse, really, for not posting. I have ammo that would last years of date-free living.

There's a good reason I haven't been on any first dates this year, though. Apparently the dating gods felt I finally kissed enough frogs - so they delivered a dude to my doorstep. Well, I guess they dropped him in my Match.com inbox (modern day doorstep, if you will). He's wonderful, amazing, fabulous, blah blah blah - everything a girl (this girl) could want. I won't gush on and on, no need to induce vomiting, but suffice to say, I'm happily stumbling along the relationship yellow brick road.

This gem of a guy even knows about my blog (found it before I had the chance to tell him about it - go me). And better yet - is supportive of it (he hasn't read every post...)! So now that we've got that year under our belt, I'm back to the bloggosphere.

Here's the thing: I have plenty of stories, and I will regale you with them on a weekly basis. But let's cut my man a little slack...send me your stories (bullet them out, I'll make sure they're HILARIOUS before they post), we'll keep it all anonymous and everyone can have a good time. This way, if I write anything too risque and he reads it, I can say "Uhhh that post was contributed..."

My point of view on dating hasn't changed the slightest, and in fact, having found myself in a happy relationship, I feel more strongly than ever that it's better to be single and laughing than coupled and complacent.Trust me, it's worth the wait.

Happy New Year folks!
