I hear ya! I don’t know why this is so hard.

My biggest date-food disappointment has to be the chef I was smitten with. He announced to me, while we were at a fancy sushi restaurant overlooking the ocean, that he doesn’t like raw fish, sushi, sashimi or raw oysters.

I was going to say the same thing as the commenter above me — you sound extremely patient and understanding. How long did you date this person?

It sounds like you just may not be ready to date, and that’s OK. What you mentioned about your time in the car after that date with that woman ending, and how you think it was a catalyst for you to reflect on things that you haven’t been talking to anyone about, is another big sign to me that you’re not ready.

Spending a whole afternoon shucking dozens of oysters and sipping on Chuckanut Pilsners, then tossing the shells on the ground right on the bay was absolute bliss. Read more

Howzit! Came here to say the exact same thing. All those days of swimming while it was raining, after it rained, jumping into streams after a hike, and paddling down questionable rivers that wild boars have probably peed in—I think my immune system is better for it. When I was younger, I used to go swimming when I had Read more

I’ve been posting about this regularly on SNS lately, so I’m sorry if others have already heard about my Bumble saga, but I’ll share it with you: Read more

Years ago, I had the opportunity to attend some panels/Q&As at Comic-Con with a media pass, and for whatever reason that I can’t recall now, I could not make it. For a while afterwards, several friends have said “I can’t believe you didn’t go!” Read more
