Hello and welcome to my blog!
For almost 20 years as a single woman dating, I learned lessons about myself, love, personalities, expectations, communication, and compatibility. I also spent more than 15 years studying psychology and human behavior in college and daily life. I married my brilliant husband Terry in 2011, and we have a beautiful son.
I believe in being sex positive and developing healthy boundaries and attitudes, things that are often sorely lacking in our world. I believe that women can embrace their sexuality while also being intelligent and educated. I believe in body positivity, love, and living fearlessly. I’ve posed nude for art, and modeling for my husband’s photography (as well as some professional modeling) has been a fulfilling artistic endeavor.
I believe in education, science, curiosity, imagination, art, and the freedom to pursue them. I believe there’s no such thing as “thinking too much”. I believe men and women are more alike than different, and if we called each other the “Other Sex” instead of the “Opposite Sex”, we’d shift the focus onto our similarities.
I sometimes write about the intersectionality of race in America and dating, since I have unique experiences and perspectives from being half white and half black. I’m Ethiopian, Norwegian, and French, none of which are apparent to most people, thus the most common question I’ve been asked is “What is your ethnicity?”
I survived a brain tumor, Minnesota winters, driving in Los Angeles, giving birth, and a “haunted” hotel. I look forward to surviving whatever else life throws my way!
