Not Your Typical Valentine's Day Post

Okay, so I'm single.  It's really not a big to me at all, because I finally have become content with it and actually enjoy doing all the things I do and how I live my life.  With Valentine's Day coming up, I have already sent my Valentine's care packages to my children in other states.  And I actually have a non-date with a very good friend who appreciates my enjoyment of singleness.

But I didn't always feel this way and in fact, I broke off a relationship this time last year.  Ouch.  So here's what I am doing and what you need to do.

Think back.  Didn't you know a guy who broke everyone's heart and still kept dating?  I did.  In college, as a tender, naïve freshman, I accepted a date with a hunky jock on the football team at college.  It didn't take too long to realize that he was not interested in vivid conversation about books, theater, and current events.  If you know what I mean.

So with my love of conversation and his lack thereof, we parted ways.

Did that keep him from dating someone, like, the next day?  No it did not.  So that's why I'm so excited about a song by an up and coming new artist named Leah Sykes.  She has a song she wrote named "Cupid" that is coming out this Friday, February 12.  This song is the antidote for every guy who has run around breaking hearts.

So, basically, you can exact your revenge on your Restless Romeo for $1.29 or less.  On Friday, go to ITunes, Amazon music, Google music, wherever you buy or listen to music (it's also on Spotify) and get it!  It's a small price to pay for something so very, very sweet. 
This is Leah Sykes!  Buy the first song "Cupid" from her EP beginning Friday!

I'm Sure Stranger Things Have Happened - Dating Advice for the Definitely Not Dead

If you have been a follower of the Flying Pants for a length of time, then you know I am not exactly  a supporter of online dating.  I just have personally had a pretty terrible experience.  But last year, about this time, after posting a blog entitled 10 Ways to Know Your Online Date is a Scam, I had a hailstorm of people writing and telling me that their brother's friend's mailman knew someone that had found LOVE on the internet.

So, as a response to this hailstorm, I set out to prove how hard it is to meet someone online with the Online Dating Diary posts (see a featured post to the right of this column).  I spent a month genuinely trying to contact men to make a dating connection and reported it back to you, the Flying Pants reader.

Those posts absolutely wrote themselves because I met so many weird/"interesting" men.  I still hear about Mr. Talks A Lot and the blind guy that liked to go to strip clubs.  In fact, I still hear about those posts and get requests to…

So Good News and Bad News.

Gentle reader, welcome to the 2017 Online Dating Diary.

This almost didn't happen.  I was seriously considering letting  Date Guy make me a one-man woman (see last post)  and that went down horrifically in flames because I am, quote, "a terrible person who doesn't regard other people's feelings."  (I probably should not have used quotes because that is not the actual verbiage.  But you get the idea.) We would have been going in two different directions on a very important topic and so after a fiery text message exchange, Date Guy is out of the picture.

So let me bring you up to speed.

I am already talking to Gorgeous, who is just that, and has a cute accent.  I am a little amazed that we are matched because he is just that gorgeous.  I have yet to do a Google image search on him because we talk frequently.  Another consideration is Ladies Love Country Boys, who is a business owner who has a veritable redneck paradise on the Westside -- he lives on a few acres a…

What A Girl (and a Guy) Wants - Dating Advice for the Definitely Not Dead #7

Thanks, Christina.  It's easy to say what a girl wants, but then how do you find what you're looking for, whether you're a man or a woman?  They say that there's an app for everything -- wouldn't it be great to have an app where you can make your perfect person?  Go through all your options and pick out what you like and have your person delivered to you in 30 minutes or less?

Alas, dating readers, it's a inevitable truth that finding your person is nothing like that.  In fact, it's more like you pick a few things and then you have to check an option called "Surprise Me" that delivers some hidden personality quirks or baggage later on in the relationship.

But thankfully we can arrive at a consensus of physical and personality traits that are generally considered desirable.  And thanks to roughly 138 of my single friends, we can get a general idea of what a girl (or a guy) wants.

The question I posed was, "What are the top three things you …
