Baffled in Boston

Dear Sylvia:

I met the most wonderful girl a couple of months ago. My friends and I were at our local watering hole when a group of three women came in. Boy, were they hot! We were able to talk them into joining us, and had a great time. I got “Jane’s” phone number and made a date for the next day, which was Saturday.

That was the beginning. We’ve been going out regularly for a few weeks now. Although she’s a great kisser, we haven’t gone any further. She’s very old-school about sex and stuff. I’m making every effort to respect that, but it’s hard sometimes.

The Online Dating Game

They Mean Well…

I’m sure there are many of you who thought you were perfectly content in your singleness. You come and go as you please, and can be sloppy for days at a time because you only have yourself to answer to. Life is good. That is, until your BFF’s get a hold of you. Don’t get me wrong, they are concerned, loving, and caring people who only have your best interest at heart. They know how miserable and lonely you really are and think you are so brave to try and not show it. They talk in hushed whispers behind your back, and look at you like they’ve just been told you have only six months to live, but you have no clue. No matter what you say, it falls on deaf ears. They are trying to save you from yourself and those titles that follow unattached people like you. You know them, old maid, spinster, etc.

Should we become a blended family?

Dear Sylvia:

The man who I have been seeing wants me and my six-year-old daughter to move in with him. While it would be nice to be able to save some money, I’m not sure that this would be a good idea. He has two children from a former marriage. They are eight and nine-years-old and are both girls. We have most of our evening meals there, and I cook.

The problem I am having is that his house is always a mess, his girls fight a lot, and his ex frequently “drops by”, unannounced, to see the girls. Her attitude toward my daughter and me is usually hostile, and he does very little to defend us.

He’s been hinting at marriage. It would be nice not to be a single parent anymore. Do you think we should go ahead and move in with him?

Dating and the Kids

When you are single, dating can still be challenging, but when you are a single parent, dating takes on a completely new dimension. Double that if both of you are single parents. There are the obvious pre-date demands such as finding a babysitter, coordinating work schedules, and making sure you are not scheduling a date on the night your child has a recital. Some single parents feel guilty about dating, and others are not even sure they remember what to do on a date. You can recognize a single parent on a date, because they are always checking their cell phone.

For the Ultimate Romantic Date – Stay Home

The best place for your ultimate romantic date is not the new French restaurant with a Paris theme, and menu items you cannot pronounce, or the little intimate spot where you usually have a long wait. Unbelievably, the perfect place for a special date night is right at home.

Speed Dating

We have fast food, drive-thru pharmacies, 1-hour cleaners, and a host of other speedy services. Dating had to follow. It only makes sense. Who has time these days to ferret out potential dates? With work, and meetings, Zumba classes, and working out, spare time is a precious commodity. Speed dating has a certain appeal for those in a time management crunch, or for those who wish to avoid the typical awkward first date.
