When it comes to matters of the heart, my life is pretty predictable. From only dating Latino men to the abrupt manner in which my relationships end, everything is always the same. Unfortunately, the same hasn’t led too much. It never does, does it?
Now, I’m taking the steps to break out of my love routine. I emailed Zeus, the 30-something that emailed me on the...

What can we say about Arizona Governor Jan Brewer? We must admit, we had no idea who she was until she upped and signed that crazy new immigration law into effect in Arizona.

It's pretty simple: I've lived in Scottsdale, Arizona, most of my life and have a mix of Hispanic and non-Hispanic friends. I don't feel different from them—which is how it should be when you have a great group of friends. I don't really listen to Spanish music, and although I love a...

I've never been the type of woman to chase a man...at least not in the beginning of a relationship. Sure, I've called a man while drinking at 4am because the relationship has gone awry. And yes, I have even written numerous emails to "express myself" when the man in question runs into his cave, refusing to return my late night phone calls and texts. But I’ve only yelled “...
