The Squeeze


In 2010, I had the itch to tell the world about my adventures in dating. I know everyone has had ups and downs, but sometimes I felt like the things I’d been through were quite rare.

So I registered this blog, and have filled its “pages” with stories of my dating past and hope for my future. Over the years, it’s seen me fall in love, and it’s witnessed ugly heartbreak.

But it’s always been my go-to. No matter what the story, I’m always willing to share it in hopes that someone can learn a lesson from me.

More than 700 posts later, there’s a lot less talk about dating, and more disussions about everything else, from television and pop culture, to cooking and politics.

Some of the stories you’ll read on this blog aren’t always welcomed on front porches or around dinner tables, but they are relatable.

I have always hoped to spend my life writing, and this blog is just one of my many outlets to tell my stories — I’ve published three books, written hundreds of magazine articles, and am now dabbling in screenwriting.

It has been an honor to “meet” many of my readers, if even just through the interwebs.

As always, I hope you can learn something from my stories. I am still on my journey, and I’m glad to have you with me. There are many more adventures around the corner for me and I cannot wait to share them with you.

Thank you for reading my words.

    Every day this month I have made it my goal to discover a new blog/blogger friend. Today I searched “dating” as I am thinking about maybe trying it again (though minimal effort will be put into the search! 🙂 ) and I found you. I like your writing style and I am excited to read more! This looks like great material for a book and your style will be perfect for it! So excited to read more!
