my journey through the pursuit of love & happiness

Paying the check on the first date-- dealbreaker?

I like to joke that I have a gay man inside of me, but this doesn’t mean I understand a thing about men. Maybe I cannot relate to straight men because they are easily confused by shiny things.

This new category is dedicated to all the advice I receive from my straight guy friends (taken or not).

#1 If the guy does not pay for dinner DO NOT accept a second date.

I was most surprised to hear this advice from some of my more err bro guy friends. This is a piece of advice that is consistent from all my straighties. Apparently if a guy doesn’t pay for dinner on the first date (no one is saying he has to always foot the bill) he’s just not that into you.

What do you think? Do you agree?

I hope that the man of my dreams serenades me with this…

“The minute I heard my first love story,I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere, they’re in each other all along.” -Rumi (Persian poet)

This was the poem that was read at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding. Reading it leaves me with that humbling feeling of love and I think it is a very beautiful expression of amor.

The author wrote the poem after the death of his girlfriend. “I transmitted a message to her which I had failed to deliver when I’d had the chance,” said the author in his 1998 memoir.

I think that point makes it all the more beautiful to read at a wedding ceremony.

The daily routine of life can blind us to the opportunities and chances to show and express love.

Here is to love making all of our lives more enriched and worthy.

The life that I have by Leo Marks

The life that I have
Is all that I have
And the life that I have
Is yours

The love that I have
Of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and yours.

A sleep I shall have
A rest I shall have
Yet death will be but a pause
For the peace of my years
In the long green grass
Will be yours and yours and yours.

That's amore.

“What is love? Love is when one person knows all of your secrets… your deepest, darkest, most dreadful secrets of which no one else in the world knows… and yet in the end, that one person does not think any less of you; even if the rest of the world does.” —Joss Whedon

One of my new favorite guilty pleasures.

Dear Girls Above Me, is a blog about two crazy, dumb, pretty, daddy-girls who moved above some guy in L.A. He is forced to hear every dumb thing they say. This is his ode to them.

Read it, it’s hilarious!

PS – The rumor is they are making a show off of this.

An excerpt from my latest read that moved me:

“Love, she felt, ought to come all at once, with great thunderclaps and flashes of lightning; it was like a storm bursting upon life from the sky, uprooting it, overwhelming the will and sweeping the heart into the abyss. It did not occur to her that rain forms puddles on a flat roof when the drainpipes are clogged, and she would have continued to feel secure if she had not suddenly discovered a crack in the wall.”
