56 Days To Find A Lover….

“The problem is all inside your head”, she said to me
The answer is easy if you take it logically
I’d like to help you in your struggle to be free attached

Whoops, I changed that last word! But for real, New Years, that stupid, stupid holiday is 56 days away….56 short days now because of stupid Day Light Savings! And obviously people do start discussing New Year’s Eve plans now because things get busy and crazy with Christmas and Hanukkah and Kwanza, and Thanksgiving, and my birthday (hint hint). And as this season is upon us, so is the time for cozy sweaters, and hot chocolate, and cuddling by a fire…with someone special. Someone who I currently don’t have! Continue reading

Cold Body Syndrome

Hey folks! Sorry it has been awhile…nothing romantical has occurred in the interim, although many other exciting things have. I write this sitting in a cab on the way to LAX, where I am headed for two weeks of family time.

So, the past few weeks have been incredibly busy! So busy on fact that there were days at work that I went hours without getting to check dlisted! I felt lost in the world! Good things are happening, also in conjunction with CHRISTMAS SHOPPING! Yea it is a pretty, pretty (a la Larry David) big deal at my workplace, and as a Jew, I am proud to say I made Christmas my bitch this year!

But as you can imagine, all this left little actual time for thinking about dating, or romance, or all of that bs….and frankly I am great with that right now. Yeah, of course I would love if I was in a relationship to get to be with them this time of year, but starting something around the holiday season BLOWS! Do you bring them to your company Xmas party? How much do you spend on a gift? Do you get them a gift? How serious is it?

But I think there are a lot of people that see the coming dates on their calendar and start to freak out and find the closest body nearby to get them through these cold winter months (yes, it is cold, even in la) something I like to call Cold Body Syndrome.

CBS (not to be confused with the network) causes people to mistakenly pair up during the cold winter months, typically as soon as Christmas decorations go up until either right before Valentine’s day (for the gents) or St. Patty’s day or a similar wild and crazy day (for the ladies).

So as I now wait in line after the shortest 4:30am cab ride ever, I am thankful that this sad single gal is actual single this time. And to all you CBS-ers out there, enjoy the next few months!
