“I’m just searching for the humor in my New York City dating life. This city is tough! And we women outnumber the men here. Did you know that? Also, when you’re fortysomethingmillion years old, the options start to dry up. Can I find humor while facing rejection or lukewarm and awkward dates? I’m going to try! Might as well…how else will I keep my sanity?”

That’s how I started off with this blog and then it started to evolve a bit. Since I love to read, I started writing book reviews and one of the books I read gave me an idea. Sam Wasson’s book about Audrey Hepburn and the making of Breakfast at Tiffany’s inspired me to check out the film sites for that movie. That day was a lot of fun! Check it out here!

After that day I thought how cool it would be to use books that I love, to encourage me to go explore the city I love, in a whole new way. Why not take myself out on fun dates in the city? It sounded like a good idea to me! I’m doing it!

Now, I’m combining the original intent of my blog (the dating aspect) and book reviews, but with a twist! So far I’m loving it and I’ve been learning a thing or two about myself. I’ve also taken Literary Dates beyond NYC to New Hampshire, Dallas, Maine, and even London!

I continue to search for humor when dating and in my life. Humor makes everything better. Follow me as I fumble my way through this concrete jungle and wherever literary dates may take me.
