I'm sort of convinced that love happens when both parties aren't looking. Like it was unexpected, perhaps even inconvenient. So totally out of the bluest blue. Glorified by the absence of trying.


Like the time the wind picked up and my hat flew away, but I still r...

My own sadness after a loss sits between my lower ribs, at the sternum, the same place you'd put the heel of your hand to perform CPR if I were to stop breathing.

(Don't worry, I'm still breathing. I checked.)

When I put pressure there, I feel better. When pressur...

"Sadly, after two of the little piggies went on Tinder, their plans went up in flames."

This one time...at a happy hour...I was approached by a very frustrated gentleman. He expressed to me that his problems stemmed from the fact that, after 32 exhausting years, he remained unwed. Basically everywhere he went, couples were parading around with locked han...

At first I was skeptical about meeting strangers online, often at random. (Note to self: I still am.) There is sense of convenience, however, knowing that potential companionship can be found with a few simple clicks (or swipes). But in a virtual world where profiles...

Scene I:

[Enter modern-day woman, whom, after nine years, is single.]

"I know stuff," she says to herself while straightening her hair. "I'm not a kid anymore."

"Plus, I was married once," she continues. "I've completed the entire dating process, beginning to end. How h...
