This is blog of a woman who didn't know what she wanted and so chased after dreams and men in search of the answers...drunken hilarity ensued. Then one day she met a man who was everything she wanted, but he wasn't so sure. Then she did the unthinkable; after they broke up she gave him this blog address and she let him into her mind as well as her heart. Unbelievably, even after sorting through the sordid archives of failed relationships, one night stands and her lusty (and embarassing) pursuit to secure the heart of a certain young line cook, John somehow managed to fall in love with her too. Melina and John were married a little over six months after they started dating, running away to Las Vegas to seal the deal. You can imagine what the over/under bet was to see if they'd even make it a year!! Over a year later and they are still going strong...this blog has become their story. Need to tell me something?

My Friend Ml and her Personal Ad
My friend Ml had her heart broken last week by wee young 'un last week. It was upsetting...Ml's hot, Ml's sweet, Ml's a boat load of fun! What was wrong with this boy, you ask? He had no balls. Ok, fine. Ml had to think of a way to mend her wounded soul...or at least find a distraction or two in the meanwhile. As she discussed with her shrink (Before you get all negative, Ml's working on bettering herself inside and out! And she was a psych major back in the day so these things are important to her. Whereas my own mental health, while possibly unstable, is a constant source of amusement for me) her constant search for the wrong guy and what that means to her emotional growth, her shrink comes up with this idea, "Post a personal ad on Craig's List! It's free! And you could possibly meet quality men that you might've dismissed before." Ml goes home and wrestles with the idea...does she want to be the kind of woman that writes a personal ad, an internet personal ad no-less? She took a deep breath, switched the computer on and typed this:

Mrs. Robinson seeks fun young man - 32 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm a fun, intelligent professional woman who is very attracted to younger men. Preferred age: 21 to 25.
If you want to hang out, grab a drink and see if we connect, drop me a note. I'm hot, you should be too! No smokers, please.

this is in or around suburbs
it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests

After she posted it and has received a veritable deluge of emails from smarmy and not so smarmy men she grins at me and says, "This is definitely not the type of ad my shrink would've wanted me to post. But it sure is going to be fun!" She keeps sending me her "rejects" which hopefully I can post one of them up here because he looks exactly like Anthony Michael Hall in Sixteen Candles!
