Sex. Love. Break-ups. Stand-ups. Unreturned phone calls. Cheating. Obsessing. Creepy texting. Smiling. Crying. Laughing.
It’s all part of being single in Cleveland .
I wish this site didn’t have to remain anonymous. However, to preserve the authenticity of the blog content, it will need to be. Odds are if I know people are reading this and know who I am, I will censor the content. I don’t want that. This site is meant to be a brutally honest account of what it is like to be single when you turn 30 and beyond. I want to feel comfortable dishing out the dirty details of my sex and dating life. Why? Because it’s damn funny… in a self-deprecating way.
I live in a Western suburb of Cleveland and my spare time is spent frequenting local restaurants, the metroparks and lots of bars. I’m single and live in a one bedroom apartment with my dog, therefore I really need no excuse to drink. It beats sitting on my couch watching bad family sitcoms and crime dramas.
I moved back to the Cleveland area about a year ago after living in South Florida for a few years. I loathe Cleveland weather, but found myself missing my friends and family back here. Sometimes I think that if I didn’t venture out on my own to spend years playing and partying on beaches, I might have actually been settled down by now.
I date. I date a lot. Some folks like to write poetry or play tennis – I date. My philosophy is that as long as I’m single, I may as well make the most of it. One day I do hope to settle down with Mr. Right, but until then I plan to have fun and enjoy the strange stories that come from dating a variety of different men.
I don’t have the life I thought I would by now. One thing I know for sure is that after traveling and dating hundreds (yes, hundreds) of men, when the time comes to settle down I’ll be ready and have no regrets about missed opportunities.
So if you are currently single, about to be single or in a not-so-great relationship – here is a blunt take on the single life of a thirty-year-old Cleveland woman. I don’t know what stories will wind up on this blog, but I’m sure there will be lots of ups, downs, laughable moments, a little heartache and hopefully maybe a little love.
All stories on this site are 1oo percent true. However, names have been changed to protect the not-so innocent.
This is my Cleveland dating blog – Enjoy!
