Ambiguous Texts Don’t Have to Define Your Love Life

Texting

Today’s post is from Michael Dean. For more on this topic, read Real Men Don’t Text. A USA Today study recently revealed how texting has quite literally blown up the dating culture. About a third of singles think it’s “less intimidating” to ask someone out over text, 78% of singles expect to text back and forth […]

Dear Mr. Valentine

Michael and Ruthie Dean

Dear Mr. Valentine, please don’t make my amazing readers who are disheartened that they are alone feel terrible today.

When You Marry the Wrong Guy

Vanderbilt/UT Game

On Saturday at the Vandy/UT game, I got in a fight, well not a fist fight, more like a verbal confrontation. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to punch the guy, but I did get to give him a piece of my mind. I’m still heated just thinking about it. My amazing father-in-law came in town and […]

Michael and I are going to be authors! Real, published, coffee-addicted, “have you read my book?” authors. Can you believe it?

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

Boys to Men | A Guest Post

walking down the road

Today, we have a guest post from one of my readers. Heather Hill is an engineering graduate student at the University of Texas in Austin.  Working in a male-dominated world has taught her to truly cherish the relationships she has with her girlfriends. I’m particularly excited about this post because Heather isn’t a Christian but is on a journey to find purpose–and can’t help […]

The Very Important “N” Word

Little kids dancing

You know when it’s coming. It’s the man who lingered by your side all night at the bar. The coworker who finds any excuse to email you. The classmate who just won’t leave you alone. It’s never the men you want; often the mommas boys, the gangly awkward ones, or worse the you’re-lucky-I’m-asking-you-out type. Mr. […]

Mr. Promised He Would Call & Mr. Inconsistent

It's a Wonderful Life

Let’s talk about relationships, shall we? I continue to hear a wealth of stories about women cashing in their ticket for a lifetime with Mr. Right because they settle for Mr. Right Now. Heartbreaking! If you’re new here, I suggest reading Real Men Don’t Text and Real Women Don’t Text Back to gain context for […]
