This blog was born out of necessity to share, learn and help others navigate the choppy waters of dating in a world that has ADD with intimacy. A world where if you don't like something about a person's looks or personality you can swipe right and meet someone new. My name is Marianne and I want to find my life partner. That person that says F**k yes, i'm sticking this through with you. I am Kentucky born and raised. I have been among the many Los Angeles transplants for 21 years. As i'm writing this I am 41 years of age. I am mother to an amazing and inspiring 12 yr. old boy. I own a hair salon and have been a hair stylist for 24 years.
I have been married, divorced, gave birth, dated and have been broken up with. I have had relationships with men and women. I have a fulfilling sex life. I have experimented, explored, failed, lost, fought, loved and grown into myself as a woman. I really love this self. It took me years to say that and really mean it. I have no idea how many people I have dated. Let's just say ALOT. My life is beautiful and blessed because I have never given up on myself. People ask me why I haven't given up on this dating thing? Why go on so many bad dates? Because to do that would be to give up on myself also. I want to share with you my personal journey so hopefully I can help with yours. And don't forget at the end of the day to smile and laugh and enjoy every breath we take.
