I hadn't been on a date in months. Speed dating was a bust and Mr. G—well, we all know what happened with him, don't we? So you can imagine how confused I felt when a fellow whom I met back in June emailed me saying he wanted to see me again. With so many months of not dating and waiting for Mr. G, I didn't even know when a guy was asking me out. Plus, this guy was nice and kept in touch because he was a friend, no?

My conversation with Mr. G was more of the same. I vented and expressed my frustration yet again, and he attempted to soothe me by telling me he cared, yet again. But something in this familiar routine had slightly changed. My heart didn't flutter as usual. And my thoughts? My thoughts were actually logical. I didn't fantasize about our reunion and future, fairytale wedding. For the first time in a long time, I was focused on the present.

I finally broke down. At 2 a.m. one morning, I found myself crying in a bar because of Mr. G. He didn't do anything—and that was the problem. Not to mention I felt incredibly alone after the speed dating and singles mixer debacle. So from one minute to the next I went from swaying to a song to sobbing in a bathroom stall. And then I did something I haven’t done since my days as a foolish and impulsive 20-something-year-old: drunk text.

I stood in a sea of men and could smell the desperation. "So these are the people who come to a speed dating singles mixer," I thought, totally discouraged. I looked around the room and tried to divert eye contact with a nerdy guy rocking huge glasses. He was no Mr. G. He couldn't possibly think I would be interested.
But of course, he did. "Hello. How are you?" he asked.

Some people will do just about anything to find "The One." As you all know, I've waited for Mr. G’s phone calls with a patience and understanding I didn’t even know was possible. But that’s because its Mr. G. If it were any other man, I would tell them to take their excuses and shove it

Though my conversation with Mr. G was short, the message was clear. Mr. G was sorry for his disappearance. He sounded stressed and upset, venting about work and the traffic. I listened quietly and let him know I was longer angry. Then Mr. G surprisingly admitted he had read my blog, Love Trips. I sent him a recent post I'd written which focused on our new romance. When I emailed the link to Mr. G, I was hoping it would motivate him to act!

For a woman, getting in the mood has a lot to do with her mind and her surroundings: scents, lighting and music. Luckily, there’s a vibrator that pulsates to the beat of your favorite crooner as he sings into your ear: the OhMiBod Club Vibe ($69, of course, goodvibes.com).

For the ladies who love toys but shudder at the thought of Mami finding it around your house, check out the Tinge Razor ($99, mytinge.com): this pretty pink contraption is really a vibrator in disguise! The cordless pleasure toy is water-resistant, a fully functional razor and a lot more discreet than some other gadgets out there (I’m talking about you, Rabbit).
But as someone who embarrasses easily, I wasn’t going to take the company’s word for it. So, I went out to test how discreet the Tinge really is.

Yeah, we've been through the bad-boy phase. Who hasn't? But when it comes down to really finding a great guy out there to settle down and build a family with, the truth is that nice guys don't always have to finish last! At least that is what scientists from Pennsylvania State University who studied the indigenous Waorani tribe of Ecuador found.
