translating your unicorn into a “shooting star”

I lie on the ground, staring at the open sky. Until I see a sharp light flash across the darkness. A shooting star. How often have I heard someone talking about a hoped for unicorn?  More than I can speak on. It’s usually not a bisexual woman into couples, however, but something far rarer.  If …

no, i don’t want your husband: an explanation of ethical non monogamy

Okay, he’s cute, sexy, whatever. Have I thought about him? Maybe. I’m demi sexual in the sense that I need an emotional connection (even if it only exists in my silly little head), so I may not have any interest in yours…in particular. And you’ll probably never know. Flirting and general interest are generally defined …

you will (probably) miss the person you were before you became a mom (or parent) & it’s okay!

I read an article today about a mother who missed the days when she did not yet have children. Some will say that is just a passing phase. Others that they would never, ever feel that way. I wondered how many of them had ever met a child, let alone raised one. You will miss …

why not allow a little more beauty into this world?

I had a perfect week. I can’t imagine a more perfect week, perhaps an entirely different sort of perfect but not “more” perfect. It’s difficult, with all the pain surrounding us, but I don’t want to feel guilty for feeling, well, good. Happy. Floating in the clouds. Surrounded by love, support, everything anyone could claim …

how to treat someone like an option that treats you like an option

I usually say that I won’t date anyone who is monogamous. But that’s not entirely true. I’ve allowed people to date me, exclusively, if they preferred that. Only with individuals capable of meeting their own needs and wants, of course. Still, it’s not my preference. I prefer to date people who want to dive fully …

“one twue wayism is the WORST….except when i think it’s fine.”

Tell me this has never happened to you. You’ve stumbled on the “One Twue Wayers are the worst ever” sentiment. Somewhere, sometime. If you’ve perused the void that is our social media/internet presence in the world. Fair point. It’s usually a way to put others down, rather than to build acceptance for your own choices. …

awww, you think you can make me jealous? that’s adorable.

If you flirt with another? I’ll happily curl up with you and chat with them about your new crush. If you play games, I’ll grow disinterested and wander off. If you, well, I don’t have the time to list everything you might do. But I’m sure there’s plenty of strategies. Perhaps you think it’ll make …
