Thought Leader Interview Series: Evan Marc Katz

Here’s part 5 of the Thought Leader Interview Series, this one featuring dating coach Evan Marc Katz. Evan is based in Los Angeles and has been a successful dating coach and online dating expert for years. We’ve had some stellar interviews from the past thought leaders but I thought this was the real deal rockstar interview. You won’t find better insight anywhere on the ‘net. Read every word and share this post.

Evan recently launched a re-designed website, check out evanmarckatz.com and his blog at adviceforasingledatingexpert.com.

Home Ownership is for Suckers

All right, Me Thinks posted another awesome comment on my Our Financial Philosophy post and Lance chimed in as well…the interwebs stole my first attempt at a comment, and then my rewrite of it was long enough to be a blog post, so here it is!  It doesn’t have anything to do with relationships, really, except that this is something that I feel REALLY strongly about and if you do too (one way or the other) then it’s a good thing to be aware of while you’re dating.

Owning a home is for suckers. Continued

3 Relationship Mistakes That Royally Suck

Here are three gnarly relationship mistakes that I was involved with earlier this week. These sucked. In fact, they were so bad that Megan and I are now in this weird detente state where we’re not talking to each other and neither one wants to make a move to re-start communication. Relationships are a pain in the ass. Avoid these mistakes like the plague.

Our Financial Philosophy: Or, Grocery Store, Part Deux

Well, due to another three-day holiday weekend, the BF ended up going with me to the grocery store again.  This time, however, we spent $298 which is at the upper end but within the budget that I have been using when I go to the grocery store by myself, PLUS he will be contributing towards half of the pet costs so it looks like things have righted themselves.  Continued

More Really Barfy Dating Advice on MSN

Seriously? What was MSN thinking? See this column, entitled How To Date Like A Man, by Erin Dailey.

Dailey’s premise is that women should take charge and do the things that men do to get what they really want out of dating. She makes a lot of presumptions and, and while I’m all for generalizations in the world of blogging, I think Dailey has done a sloppy job of offering “advice” and trying to be funny. At least I think she’s going for humor. The thing that burns my scrotum is that her piece ran in Marie Claire AND on MSN Lifestyle, so probably tens of thousand, nay, hundreds of thousands of peeps read it. Oh no, I think I’m…yes, it’s coming…OMFG…I’m going to HURL…

Where’s Honey Been, Anyway?

As I’m sure you’ve all noticed, I’ve been out of the blogosphere a little bit of late.  Sorry for sticking you with no one but Lance for so long, but I had some pretty crazy stuff going on.  However, for some pretty depressing reasons, I should have plenty of time to blog for the forseeable future!  Here’s what’s been going on with me.

The Internet Ate My Homework Post

In my last post, My Boyfriend’s Mother, Me Thinks made the observation that the BF is weird about money, as evidenced by the huge blowout we had over the groceries (see Snowboarding, Sickness, and a Breakdown at the Grocery Store).  I have given this idea a lot of thought and even started a blog post about it…a blog post I had nearly finished, but when I hit save, I learned that my computer had disconnected from the internet and the entire thing vanished.  This was a 1500 or 2000 word post (and full of pretty insightful shit, if I do say so myself!) so I was extraordinarily bummed to have lost it.
