Alpha Female Seeking True Alpha Male

In Dating, Love, Relationships by Queenie2 Comments

About two years ago a guy friend was lecturing me about my dating life and asked what I really wanted and needed in a guy. I paused and I thought about it, but I already knew. “Dude. I need an alpha male.” He was not happy with my answer and actually laughed in my face. He laughed for a few …

A Letter To My Ex-husband

In Dating, Divorced, Love, Relationships by Queenie0 Comments

When it comes to you everyone waits for my reaction. It’s been 3 ½ years and they still wait for my reaction. If you’re around I get stares, if your name is mentioned everyone looks at me to make sure it’s ok that they keep talking. I don’t know if people want me to fly into a fit of rage …

Why Guys Are Afraid Of Confident Women

In Dating, Love, Relationships by Queenie2 Comments

Since I started dating, guys (and a recent Buzzfeed quiz) have only consistently said one thing about me- I’m intimidating. At first this really bothered me because I didn’t feel intimidating. I make my roommates kill spiders, I cried like an asshole while watching UP, I can’t watch scary movies or even the trailers on TV, and when it comes …

The talk. It’s made girls cry, boys crumble and people give up on a relationship because they’re too afraid to get their feelings hurt. Having a talk requires two people to be honest and vulnerable, two things I have come to learn that people absolutely HATE and will avoid at all possible costs. Apparently, there are rules to having the …

In Dating, Divorced, Love, Relationships, Single by Queenie1 Comment

“Hide-and-seek, grown-up style. Wanting to hide. Needing to be sought. Confused about being found.” – Robert Fulghum When it comes to dating it is like hide-and-seek, and these days I spend more time hiding than I do seeking, which is quite the change from three years ago. It’s no secret my dating style, or lack-there-of, is a bit “different.” People …

In Family, Love, Single by Queenie0 Comments

I was washing my hands at work the other day and I started gagging. They changed the soap in the dispenser to Dial and I wanted to immediately march to HR to file a complaint.

I just walked past the mirror and high-fived myself for remaining single for another Valentine’s Day, it’s been tough, these guys have been making it soooooo difficult (eye roll). While most of my friends started to find their winter time cuddle buddies, for me, dating from November 1st– Feb. 13th is completely off limits. November – February is love and …

Divorced for the Holidays

In Divorced, Love, Relationships, Single by Queenie0 Comments

read one of those articles about being single during the holidays and I got annoyed. I understand that I’ve already been on the other side of the fence and had the chance to spend 10 holidays with someone. But maybe that gives me a better perspective. So before you start binge eating cookies and playing power hour with eggnog to …
