The doctors told my mom and dad not to get married, they said he wouldn’t make it. Then after they got married they told him he’d never be able to have more children. SURPRISE!!!! Here I am, and my brother too! Strange things started to happen the day my dad died. My cell phone would light up like it was …

5 Ways To Know A Guy REALLY Likes You

In Dating, Love, Relationships by Queenie0 Comments

As females we waste a ridiculous amount of time trying to decode the cryptic language of men. We spend hours over-analyzing texts and conversations wondering if we said or did something wrong. Instead of recognizing the obvious, we justify their words and actions because it’s easier to remain hopeful than it is to admit that the guy we like doesn’t …

I tried to make it a full 14 days on Tinder but deleted the app with 5 days to go. I can’t completely knock it, but it’s just not for me. The app was highly entertaining and addicting, I made a ton of observations and even got asked on a date. But first, let’s start with age ranges and what …

Social media does nothing but complicate the world of dating. Having been married and only using social media as a way to stay in touch with friends and family, I would have never dreamed this other side would have existed. But the day came when I changed my relationship status from married to single and social media turned into the …

A Guy Strung Me Along

When I was little my dad would make me get on the phone and help him sell fireworks, if I was successful he’d give me a percentage of the sale, although I don’t actually think he ever worked out the percentage because I always just got $5. He would tell me to get people to buy more than what they …

Why I’m Divorced

In Divorced, Love, Relationships by Queenie6 Comments

My ex and I were polar opposites. He was quiet and put together, he was insanely intelligent and had big goals and always knew exactly what he wanted to do with his life. I was loud, unorganized, I had no time to think about things like a career and if it wasn’t on E! News or MTV I couldn’t be …

My Name and My Blog

In Family, Life, Love by Queenie2 Comments

My mom named me after a Fleetwood Mac song (click the YouTube video above) and I think because I was named after a song it’s only natural that I have an obsession with music. I go to sleep listening to music, I wake up listening to music; my entire day revolves around music- and food. Good songs tell stories and …

The Real Rules of Dating

In Dating, Love, Relationships by Queenie1 Comment

When I was younger I used to stare in the mirror and wonder two things, who I would marry and when I would get boobs. I’m now 32 and still wondering the same two things. I can’t say I’m in any hurry to say “I do” again, turns out choosing a guy isn’t as easy as choosing a new Bombshell. …

The Phases of Divorce, or Any Breakup

In Dating, Divorced, Love, Relationships by Queenie4 Comments

I was talking to a friend the other night, we’ll call him Macallan. (Guess where I met him? Yep, the bar!) He’s on the road to divorce and just like every other divorced person he asked me what he’s supposed to do next. Answering the “what’s next” question can be rather difficult and there’s no definitive answer because it’s going …

My Journey After Divorce

In Divorced, Life, Love, Relationships by Queenie0 Comments

It took me a while, but I remember the first night in my newly divorced singleness that I didn’t have any plans on a Friday and I was looking forward to staying home. I had such a crazy day at work all I wanted to do was make myself a good dinner and have a movie night. I chose Eat, Pray, …
