#26: Reporting on "Love in the Bay Area"

So… I know, I’m slacking a little… The diligence and discipline I had when I started this writing challenge has faded a bit, but I can explain… 1) I’ve started to write about stuff that yes- even I am not ready to share with the world. Some things must be reserved for “the book.” 2) I’ve been gearing up for MY [...]

#24: Just want to date? 4 Tips from The Sex-Positive Parent

Last month Bedsider sent me to, The Bay (Berkeley, Oakland, & San Francisco), to talk to folks their about dating, relationships, and sex lives. [Side note: New vlog, “Love in the Bay Area” up Monday! Meantime watch one of my past Bedsider volgs] And in between talking to strangers about their personal stories, I reconnected with [...]

#6: “I hate you so much right now” (Fiction)

As you will notice right away, this is not the usual genre on Veralyn Media. I used to write 10-minute stage plays, but that was eons ago. Let me know what think! I really enjoyed thinking and writing about these characters. Play Characters Sierra: Female, African American, 33 years old. Think Jennifer Hudson in, Sex in the [...]

Love and career, 2012: Looking back, moving forward!

Last year at this time I was contemplating whether I could have both love and a career in 2012 and a year later… I still don’t really know. One thing I will say: by allowing myself to fully let go of the past, I did open myself up to meeting an amazing guy. A guy I did fall hopelessly [...]

3 Ways to Deal With Political Differences in a Relationship

With Election Day just around the corner, I’ve noticed a lot of my Facebook friends being way less tolerant about political views that differ from theirs. I’ve witnessed “un-friending” announcements and call-outs in the comments of politics-related status updates. With dating and relationships on the brain (as always), of course I found myself wondering how [...]

Is the Grass Actually Greener in Kansas City?

This summer, I decided to put my love of traveling and meeting new people to the test and go where I have never gone before… the Midwest! My first destination was Kansas City (which I quickly learned is partly in Missouri, not just Kansas State). My assignment? To find out about the Kansas City experience when it [...]

Got Romance?

Over my dating history I have come to realize that I am not very romantic. At least not in the way most of the movies and TV shows I watch tell me I should be. Don’t get me wrong—I am thoughtful, especially when it comes to giving gifts or planning a date… but when it [...]

I didn’t know my own strength…

Today is my first Valentine’s Day without any guy in my life—because, for the first time in my adult life, I am truly single. This may come as a shock to many people who know me and know that I haven’t been in a relationship in years, but truth be told there was always someone [...]
