A Woman’s POV: How it Makes Me Feel When… He Sent Me an Angry Text

Posted by

By Jessica Downey – Not What I Ordered I am a big fan of texting. Actually, I consider it a gift to the multi-tasker. If you are running late you can send a quick text. If you are in the middle of watching a show and see a funny commercial you can send a text. [...]

Saturday’s Memoirs: Adventures in Bad Online Dates — Ex Bashing

Posted by

By Kelly Seal I got suckered into another Match.com subscription, falling for the good-looking guys I’d seen in the promotional email. But once I joined I didn’t hear from them. Instead, the balding late-forties divorcees were responding to my ad, with emails like: “I like ur pix. Wanna chat?” I guess it was too much [...]

Respect, Personal Space & Gayle King

Posted by

By Jennifer Kelton My close encounter with Gayle King is an in-flight tale. Four years ago, I wrote a book on dating and mating titled: Don’t Use My Sweater Like a Towel. Despite the blunt title, the book is ultimately a non-fiction story about: life, love, human nature and, most important, respect. The man who [...]

By Jennifer Kelton It’s estimated about 60 percent of men and 40 percent of women will have an affair at some point in their marriage. Womensavers.com (Hello, Ashleymadison.com) While it’s extremely difficult to get the precise numbers, I can say that unfortunately, unknowingly, and very much to my Brazilian waxed vaginal dismay I became part [...]

By Jennifer Kelton As I write this, the Internet is approximately only 27 years, 2 months, 2 weeks, 2 days, 12 hours, and 31 minutes old. That’s younger than some of the guys I’ve dated.

About Jennifer Kelton

I did not wake up one morning and say “hey I think I’d like a man use my sweater like a towel, write a candid dating book, become a dating expert, the CEO and founder of a social dating site and have three blogs.”

All of this has happened in a slow burn and here I am. The good, the bad, the mistakes, way too many tears shed to count, lots of wine and oh my goodness a huge learning curve that leaves me much of the time saying, “I’m sorry but this is all new to me.”
