My Exhausting Dating Life

So, I thought I would share some of my past dating experiences with all of you.  Because the way I look at it, they’ve all pretty much been part of this journey.  And my family and friends all seem to find them very amusing!
Ok, so I’ve dated A LOT of men.  Some very nice men, and some not so nice men (and I won’t be using real names).  I’ve dated 2 police officers, 3 firemen, 1 hairstylist, 4 “potentially” gay men (insert hairstylist), 1 Italian, 1 German, 1 Irishman, 1 tattoo artist, 1 that was my college history professor, and 1 that was arrested for rape!  I’ve had family and friends fix me up with men, and I’ve met men through dating websites.  All very different men, yet one thing in common………..I looked (at one point or another) at each one of them as a potential father.  Hmmmmm, may explain why I’m single and doing this mother thing solo!  LOL….just kidding (kind of).  J
Is there something wrong with telling a guy on the first day that I can’t wait to be a mother, or asking if they want children?  Geez, I’m just being upfront and honest!  No games here guys!  But wait, boys like games, right?  That’s what they DO!  Sport’s is their thing, so playing games is what they’re good at!  Unfortunately, I’ve never being really very good at sports.  So playing games never came easy to me.
I wear my heart on my sleeve, and what you see is what you get from me.  I say it like I see it.  And sometimes guys just don’t like that.  Also, I am exaggerating here a bit too.  I wasn’t as bad as I’m proclaiming to have been.  But, I’m sure there were times that I scared a few guys off with my straightforwardness! 
Each and every one of these guys didn’t work out for one reason or another.  And while some of them caused my heart to break into pieces, I don’t regret a single one.  Each one of them (along with other experiences in my life) has led me to where I am today, on the road to becoming a mother! 
So friends……which dating story do you want to hear first???


  1. Oh, MOST seem relatively normal the way that you've described them, so I guess it's the rapist story, of course! Love your blog, BTW!

    Unfortunately, I know the rapist story... ugh. I am interested in hearing about the college professor!

    I love your writing... I love the humor and heart you are putting into this.

    I can't wait to see you in July!

  3. The Prof, the tat guy and the 4 "potentially" gay men!

  4. Ok Liz, I will start with the really, super bad guy! But first let me just say thank you for the compliment on my blog! That makes me feel good!

    Julie, thank you also for the very sweet comments! It makes me feel good to hear people's positive reactions to my blog, because sometimes I'm just writing and have no clue what people think. So it's very nice to hear! Looking forward to seeing you too! I'll talk about the professor next.

    And Super, I would love to know who you are! Do I know you, or are you someone completely new to me?

  5. I LOVE ur blog Heidi and I would love to hear any of your dating to read what you write!


Please feel free to leave comments! I love them!!!!
