Who the hell is panicking and stop telling me to calm down!?! Do the math, friends, and remember your single days. Where I am not going to meet them is at the gym, so stop suggesting that. My face is beet red within 5 minutes and I tend to sweat profusely. This saying is just crap anyway because it suggests that I am sitting with my pole waiting for any random boy to sadly get caught on my hook. Ultimately, as Erin so perfectly points out, if you don’t have unique valuable advice to give (like the World Cup dating plan), don’t give any at all. I know misogamy starts at an early age and it spreads to females who are undermined for their gender. As for not wanting to be called a girl, I myself do not care for it and in fact it is something I use as a screening when I deal with men. My children are not yet women and I am in no hurry to rush them.
At 31, dating blogger Erin Meanley looks back and shares 31 dating truths she wishes she had known ten years earlier1. There should be a medium ground between workaholism and his absolute devotion.

I am frequently the 3rd, 5th or 7th wheel during gatherings and outings, and I’m totally cool with that as long as I’m enjoying the company. Stop being awkward and uncomfortable with the single people around you.
And there is nothing worse than some of the patronizing comments we single women have to endure from the happily coupled-up folks that surround us (often complete strangers).
Most of us just want someone to have fun with and to get busy with. I don’t know a single couple that met in the produce aisle. I have eyes just like you and I can see all the persons of the opposite gender wandering about living their lives.If I had a dollar for every time someone has said this to me, I wouldn’t need a freaking career.I’m pretty sure that almost no one actually chooses their career over love. This is particularly irritating coming from someone who was married in their early 20s.debuted with a post about being 29 and not having a husband, already. An even more ominous sign: In an email to friends, reproduced after the jump, Meanley explains that, now that she's a dating blogger, "I need some help with pimpage. " Well, at least she's being honest, somewhere, about the transactional aspect of her "dating."
