NYC, I’m about to be in you!

It’s Friday night, nearly 9pm, and I’m finally packed and ready to hunker down with a bottle of lavender polish and the next episode of the Gilmore Girls in my Netflix queue.  Honestly, this is a glorious way to spend this particular Friday night.  Why, you ask?  Well, I’ll tell you!  I’m heading out tomorrow … Continue reading

Single, Again. Sassy, Forever.

Just a quick update to let you know that I’m single again!  The guy I was dating was very sweet, but we just came to the realization that our relationship wasn’t going anywhere.  So, we called it quits with a hug; I’m sure we’ll stay friends. Seriously, no hard feelings! So I’m back in action … Continue reading

(Not So) Single Sassy update

I’ve been storing up these blog posts in my head, so instead of writing several, I’m going to write a few blurbs to give you all an updated on life. 1. So, there’s this guy who has been calling me every few months and leaves me rambling phone messages.  I’ve blogged about him before – … Continue reading

I love to hate you!

I’m slightly delayed in writing this post, but in all fairness, I’ve been busy! On September 27th, I checked something important off my bucket list: I met my favorite band, Erasure!  I’ve been a fan since I first heard their 2nd album, the Innocents, in 1988 when I was in the 7th grade.  Quickly, I … Continue reading

Give online dating a chance!

Admit it.  There are tons of reasons why online dating isn’t easy.  It takes commitment (often described like having a second job!), money (OkCupid and Plenty of Fish can be sketchy at times), and a thick skin (takes heart to ignore the foot fetishists and jaded serial daters). But, in a recent article on the … Continue reading

Coming to Peace with Oneself

I’ve been writing this blog for nearly two years, and for the most part, it’s been a tongue in cheek “mockumentary” if you will of online dating, with my own dating life as the central character. People have asked me time and time again: “What will you do when you meet someone special?” “Will you … Continue reading

The Staycation

There are so many reasons why taking a vacation is crucial to your personal well being.  There have even been endless articles promoting this notion.  In this article from Inc Magazine, one is encouraged to take a vacation even if you don’t have money to do so.  About.com focuses on the stress we endure and … Continue reading

Who finishes first – nice girls or guys?

My friend Alex recently sent me a link to this article from Fox news.  Admittedly, I probably wouldn’t have found it myself since I’m not a consumer of Fox news, like him, but I cannot stop thinking about what I read and how it makes so much sense to me. The article, if you click … Continue reading

You know when your heart and head are ready for love? Yep, you know that feeling. Everything is right in the world and you’re just missing that one great thing: true love. In the spirit of all things girly and cheesy, here are some  mushy videos to make your tears jerk…

Summer Lovin’

It’s July 7th and love is in the air!  No, really, the summer is the perfect time to fall in love.  There aren’t those jokes about summer flings for nothing!  The weather is warm – it’s the perfect time to stroll around in strappy sandals and summery dresses, arm in arm with your special someone. It’s enough … Continue reading

Steven’s Coming Out Party

This past Saturday I experienced my very first “Coming Out” party!  My friend Steven (who recently came out to his family and friends) decided to have a formal party to embrace coming out as gay man living in New York City.  He invited me at least 6 months ago, stating that he wanted to have this … Continue reading

Social Grace

Social Grace. I’ve been using this phrase a lot lately in a variety of conversations and have come to realize that it has become my standard of evaluation for worthiness for an individual. It’s simple now for me. Whenever someone asks me, now, what I’m looking for in a spouse, friend, colleague, I can state … Continue reading

Pardon Our Dust

SingleSassy.com is getting a makeover!  Please pardon the interruptions as I make some cosmetic adjustments to the blog’s appearance.  I hope it looks beautiful when it is done!

Integrated Fundraising = Integrated Dating

Integrated what? It is, in fact, a reference to a conference presentation I did in 2011 called “Integrated Fundraising.” I have mentioned before that I’m a fundraiser by profession – I raise money for a non-profit organization outside of Boston that educates children with special needs. In any case, a few years ago, I did a … Continue reading

Back on Match!

I’ve been dilly-dallying for a while and finally had an hour tonight to create a brand new match.com profile!  Started fresh – new email account and everything! But I’m testing something out.  I used an uncanny amount of magic words in my profile: the top 10 words that seem to attract the most amount of … Continue reading

Cha-Ching!

I just read this interesting article from Forbes about salaries and dating: To share how much you make or keep it a secret: that is the question!  There’s always a place on an online dating profile to share your salary information, but it is often a range, and there is usually a place to say “I’d … Continue reading
