Why Nice Guys Shouldn’t Finish Last

I have to admit that at one point in my life I snubbed the “nice guy”. I was young, immature, and not sure what I really wanted. I actually said to my girlfriends “I don’t know, he’s just too nice”. What did that mean exactly? If I try to analyze it maybe I believed that the guy who acted tough, arrogant, and selfish would in the long run be a better mate. Or maybe I …

To burn or not to burn:  What to do with pictures of your ex

Categories: Advice, Humor, Marriage, Relationships,

This is a tough one for me because I never, EVER throw away pictures. I am a big believer in holding on to memories, even if they aren’t always pleasant. A lot of people disagree with me and believe that once the relationship is over, any and all photos, concert tickets, t-shirts, and whatever else was saved goes into the trash and set aflame never to be seen again. Well, I can agree with the …

Why Women Confuse Sex for Love

It took me a long time to figure this out, but when I did it was quite liberating.  During my dating years I became obsessed with a jerk.  He had none of the qualities I wanted in a man, but I think that’s what attracted me to him.  He was the quintessential “bad boy” and I was intrigued. We dated officially for only about four months, but he stayed in my life for over three …

When my husband and I started dating, Christmas was just around the corner. We decided to exchange gifts and I happily started poking around to get to know him better so I could get him something awesome. When he told me all about this great computer game that he wanted, I went out and picked it up for him. He had also been complaining that he didn’t have a laundry hamper, so I went to …

Holiday recipes for the baking challenged

Now, first things first: I can bake. I’m a wonderful baker. I just get no enjoyment from it at all. Zip. So I rarely ever bake anything, depending on my local grocery store instead. But every year around this time, I get a hankering to bake. I don’t know if it has to do with all the chocolate treats being sold, or the candy cane scent in the air, but I feel the need to …

Beauty tips from a cheapskate

Categories: Advice, How To,

You might not know it to look at me, but I’m somewhat of a girly girl.  I like make-up, scented lotions, and pretty things.  What I don’t like is spending a lot of money on them.  In my search for the perfect shampoo, lipstick, body scrub, et cetera, I have come across some great, and surprising, finds that won’t break the bank but will make you feel like a million bucks. It’s All About the …

A fat girl’s shopping Hell

Okay, I am what you might call pleasantly plump.  By no means a size two, or even a size six, I have some extra meat on my bones.  But that doesn’t mean that I don’t like looking good.  But what it does mean is that I have grown to hate shopping. Remember the days when a size 14 was a size 14, not a size 12?  Or a large was actually large,  not walking doll …

So, with just a little over a month left until Christmas I have decided this year that I am going to have all my gifts bought and wrapped by the first of December.  I don’t have a lot of people to buy for, but I do have a tendency to go overboard with the shopping and I am one of those manic shoppers who is still picking up odds and ends December 24th then rushing …

Etiquette For Texting In The Dating Arena

girlsnark icon

Posted by Marla Martenson
Categories: Advice, Relationships,

As a matchmaker, I frequently get feedback from frustrated clients telling me that their date canceled on them by sending them a text message, or even “broke up with them” through text. What has happened to our society that we are all hiding behind e-mails and text messages? We seem to be afraid or too busy to pick up the phone and add a personal touch - a human touch. Sometimes, people say they sent …
