I'm Back!


Brett Favre, Michael Jordan and even Muhammed Ali are some of the world's greats, and like them (yes, I am comparing myself to the greats), I have come back out of retirement. I really believed I was retiring from singledom forever. Well single life, looks like you just can't shake me.  

This time I am trying out the online dating experience. It's been mildly painful, slightly awkward and very entertaining. Men, if you are reading this, I have some suggestions for you. If you are putting up a profile, then remember unless you are Manti Te'o, we are probably going to meet. You might want your pictures to reflect what you look like NOW, not five years ago when you were hot and in shape. One of my gentleman callers had the audacity to write that he was fit and attractive. That should've been the HUGE red flag. Who writes that anyway?? Well, surprise, surprise, he looked pregnant. If you describe yourself as fit and attractive, you might want to be. I don't know, call me crazy. Also, if your profile says you have two children, you should have two children, not four. "Oops, forgot about those other two!" Really??

This time being single feels different. I'm in my 30s now, thankfully Saturn returned and I somehow survived and had "many opportunities to grow" (aka, very shitty, painful times). I am much more confident and I have my ex-boyfriend, Steve, to thank for for that. Although our relationship was challenging (we know what that means - very shitty, painful times!), I gained so much wisdom. I have never felt so beautiful in my whole life. All those times singing Christina Aguilera "You're So Beautiful" and hours of standing in the mirror naked telling myself, despite my inner critic, "I Am Gorgeous" "My Body Is Gorgeous" "I Am Worthy Of LOVE", was finally reflected back to me. I had someone who could see the beauty within me. I could wear sweat pants and no make up and still feel like a hottie goddess. I hope one day someone is able to do that for him. He deserves it. 

I'm taking a new approach to dating, I trust myself, I feel confident, like Alicia Keys sings...THIS "girl is on FIRE!"

Hose me down, baby, P Roxy is back!
