Dating Advice: Single Girl EMT

Not all dates go as planned. Some are just awful and end sooner than expected. While others end up never ending but, in good way. Let the good times roll right? And as I write this Beyonce and her most recently coined phrase “I woke up like this” come to mind. Gotta love pop culture and its overwhelming influence in our lives. Anway, over the weekend I went on a date and ran into some unexpected scenarios. And so it got me to thinking where was my EMT and how come I don’t have one? Because after a magical night of milkshakes, mishaps and smudged mascara, I needed to be revived. Here’s a quick recap of what happened.

7:15PM- Pickup

7:35PM- Wonderful Italian Dinner (way off the no carb thing, but worth it)

9:22PM- Milkshake craving conquered (his idea I swear)

10:15PM- Public hand holding

10:30PM – I receive text from bff that his grandmother has passed away

10:31PM- OMG… (INTERNAL THOUGHTS – I HAVE TO GO…. WAIT SHOULD I GO)

10:45PM- Decide to go see Godzilla…(wtf, I know)

11:10PM- The movie starts

1:32AM- Movie ends

1:37AM-Time Check, OMG OMG

2:07AM- Kissing Commences in car

2:10AM- He invites me in

2:45AM-Kissing Restarts on couch

Sunday Morning….

I woke like this and not in a good way. Someone please que Beyonce. Not only am I a bad friend but also I look like who, what, where! Thank goodness I was fully clothed, bra straps still intact and nothing happened. But drunk or not (I was not) I had to remove yesterdays face and refresh and regroup. I had an emergency on my hands, I had to get to my best friend. But where was my EMT? I didn’t have one. How many times has this happened to us? Your night doesn’t turn out as planned and you have somewhere to be in the morning and you have no time to go home. This happens all too often with dates and that’s why I have “created” the EMT, Emergency Maintenance Tote. So what is an EMT? In single girl world it’s a quick list of things you need to quickly look good after a long night. The items are small enough to fit in most purses and oversized clutch bags yet all your bases for a quick fix are covered. Smash it all into a Ziploc bag or a fancy makeup case and stash it in your car for emergencies. Here’s what in the tote.

Dating Advice: Dating Don’ts

Since I recently starting dating again I have learned a lot. And I as you know I like to share that information with you. Today’s dating has changed drastically over the pass 10 years. During various conversations that I’ve had many people blame it on social media. I’m not sure about that , I think it has more to do with convenience, morals and integrity. But thats another conversation for a longer video.

Dating can still be fun, at least it has been for me. Here are a few of my dating rules for what not to do.
