Modern Courtship by Meg Stivison

Posted on June 26, 2011 at 3:08 PM Comments comments (0)

My escapist drug of choice is thick Tudor histories. I can’t stop reading stories of heavy eye contact, careful wordplay, formal flirtation, the slow build of mannered requests. Sure, there are battles and backstabbing in my books too, but it’s really all about the courtly flirtations, isn’t it?

The draw of courtship in our world of post-bar hookups isn’t ...

February 2002. October 2004. June 2008. And now June 2011. The trend continues. A few months ago, I wrote about Boston’ sports fan being the most spoiled of them all. One team wins and gains national exposure as much as the NFL owners locking out their players. In the mean...

Social media and the long-distance relationship by Meg Stivison

Posted on April 10, 2011 at 1:10 PM Comments comments (0)

I love the cyberpunk connectivity that social networks and ubiquitous smartphones have brought us. I'm excited by new technology creating new social patterns, by the endless, everywhere conversation of texting and the instant connection when photos of distant friends appear in my hands. Every day it's easier to connect based on interest and affection, and not only geography.

I love it, of course I do, but ...

Single while raising teens by April Rose

Raising teens alone in today’s age isn’t easy. It truly takes a village to raise a child. What do you do when the absent parent now wants to partially step in and parent the child from a distance? Better yet, how about when the absent parent is an angry unforgiving mom. It’s important for the parents to maintain reasonable communi...

 Let’s set the stage for my “Cougar” transformation. There I was, 40 years old and my husband of 10 years had just cheated on me with a woman he met while we were on vacation together. We were on a cruise ship with a bunch of our friends and I had gone back to the cabin to sleep. He stayed out with everyone else and ended up meeting a tranny-looking she be...

Millionaire Matchmaker by Joanne Giannini

So I was flying back from a vacation in Florida with my friends Robyn and Carla, when Carla rips a page out of the airline magazine and hands it to me.  “Here,” she says, “you need to call this place.”  She had given me a one-page ad to a very exclusive matchmaking service “for the most eligible and commitment-minded bachelors.”  I looked it over and my very first instinct was that it was a service created solely to match up olde...
