Don’t miss out on love…

Obviously, I’m a big believer that love can happen anywhere, at any time.  That’s why I want you to imagine the following scenario. Pretend for a second that you’re a New Yorker waiting for the 6 train and you happen to lock eyes with a handsome stranger across the crowded platform.  You feel a jolt down to your pinky toe (and maybe elsewhere too). But then the moment passes. He gets on the train and you’re still stuck waiting with a sinking feeling in your stomach, wondering what might have been. more…

Also get informed about the cities that value sex the least — so you can avoid them!

I am a very, very lucky girl. I was pleased and surprised to find that my hometown of Santa Monica, California, was ranked second among the top ten places in America where sex is valued the most.

Don’t give up hope — one American couple gave me renewed faith that the love you want is out there… somewhere

When I set off on a tour of the Yarra Valley’s wineries this morning, I wasn’t expecting much. Seven hours and 64 Australian wines later, I had renewed faith that the relationship I’m seeking exists…and no, those two elements are not related. Take one American couple, a mutual love of travel and a desire to keep growing as a twosome, and you’ve got the sum of one hell of a great marriage. Intrigued? You should be. more…

Streetspark says yes! Can I get someone to take this for a test-drive?

I received an email from my friend Christina today telling me I HAD to write about this new iPhone dating application called Streetspark. Life lesson #1 here: trust your pals. I’m now officially dying to try this app because — tada! — it claims to make dating in your very own city easy as 1, 2, 3. And as many of you know, it isn’t when we’re on vacation that we have problems meeting our match, it’s right here in our home cities… more…
