Ah, the old adage – Dinner & Drinks or Dinner & a Movie – The once traditional dating experience has vastly changed to, Let’s grab coffee/drinks (so I can run away quickly if you lied about yourself online and hope to meet another attractive stranger before heading home hopefully not disappointed).

Wednesday Wellness – Save the Ladies

It can be uncomfortable discussing your personal information even with your trusted doctor, but there needs to be more discussion on what is going on with our bodies than making jokes or feeling shameful about the state we are currently in.  I’m talking about, how honest are you with your gynecologist?  I know it’s a very uncomfortable doctor visit for many, but it is absolutely mandatory that we know exactly what’s going on, and what condition all our parts are in.  With the rate that women are developing cancer of the breast, uterus, ovaries, cervix and beyond, we all need to empower ourselves and be our own advocates for health.  It goes beyond juicing to stay healthy.

“Birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it….” – Lets Fall In Love

I love this song originally by Cole Porter, sung by Ella Fitzgerald.  When I was younger I used to giggle over the “do it” part, thinking they were implying sex, not the whole falling in love part.  Now as an adult, I still giggle at the “do it” part.  With all the doing it going on, what about when we are doing it?  We all know the many other phrases associated with “doing it,” but let’s call it what it is – sex.  The good, bad, and the ugly – sex.  We all have sat through sex ed in school, rolled a condom on a banana as practice, and felt somewhat embarrassed by the terms used.  In real life how often are we running around looking for a dental dam?  The reality is, sex happens, and for the most part we are smart about talking to our partners about protection, past partners, STDs, pregnancy and the like.  What about those other times?  We take risks thinking we are invincible, and we won’t be part of another statistic.  This goes for all ages too.  A lot of the times, there is an association of irresponsibility with teenagers, but adults can be just as guilty.

Dating Down the Rabbit Hole

I want to first start by saying that there are still some amazing people out there and maintaining a positive, optimistic attitude is more powerful than the alternative.  We live in an age where it is easy to meet new people every second of each day.  It is easy to get connected for free on a lot of platforms without having to spend a dime.  Social media has made it convenient to stay connected with people from around the world, not just those in your area.  This is fantastic to a fault.   I have noticed that this fault is more than simply overlooking the fact that your partner snores when they sleep.  These faults are starting to add up to something more serious that is chipping away at the sanity and emotions of some.
