Workplace Love: Finding Mr. Right in a Co-Worker?

officeRomanceFinding love could all be so simple if we knew exactly where to find it.  Women typically go to bars, gyms, museums, coffee shops, even church in search of Mr. Right.  We are always on the plow searching for Mr. Right, yet we end up finding Mr. Wrong, Mr. Broke, Mr. Married, Mr. Ex Con, Mr. Drug Addict, Mr. Gay on the Low, Mr. Got Too Many Baby Mommas, ugh the list can go on and on. Where art thou Mr. Right?

Monday through Friday we are steadily anticipating for the weekend so we can go out and begin our hunt all over again in search of Mr. Right. But have you ever wondered, “what if Mr. Right was in the office next to you?” “What if Mr. Right shared the cubical across from you?” “What if Mr. Right was someone you’ve seen every day except Saturday and Sunday?” “What if Mr. Right is your co- worker?”

Love in the workplace could lead to awkward situations but on the flip side it could lead to spontaneous consistent fun.  Imagine going to work with your man every day, wouldn’t that be great? You never have to worry about the “baby, I’m working late” message because you know EXACTLY what’s going on. LOL. I am all for finding your Mr. Right in the workplace but there are a few Office Rules that must be discussed before you commit to such a relationship.

The Slings & Arrows of Outrageous Dating By Guest Blogger

cupidI like to think that every experience has a purpose.  I keep trying to figure out the point of all my twisted dead end journeys down romance lane. I think I've finally found it! The purpose my fellow damsels in-not-so-much distress is to share the journey with you! Hopefully to help you avoid some of my pitfalls but definitely to share some laughs and make sure that your headlights are on as you enjoy your travels.

One of my favorite quotes is "men are like buses, if you miss one the next one will be along soon" (adopted from Wendy Cope). Another is from Maya Angelou, "don't just be an aging female, be a real woman." The combination of the two makes for some really interesting social encounters. I spent a couple of years as a “serial dater” and came across some interesting and amusing “buses” along the way.

Bus # 1 is Mr. I'm Not Ready to Commit but I don't want you to see anyone else. He's the guy with whom you go out to romantic dinners, share luminous laughter, have tons in common, hold hands in the street, spend hours on the phone or staring lovingly into each other’s eyes. He involves you in most if not all of his decision making, constantly tells you how much he values you, but reminds you periodically that he's not ready to consider you his girlfriend. What's this dude's deal & what's the definition of girlfriend on his planet?

The remedy: Listen carefully. He'll tell you who he is and what he's about in the midst of sweeping you off your feet. The mistake that most of we female phenoms make is that we think all that stuff from his past doesn't apply to us in the present. But wasn't our most poignant lesson in social studies class that history repeats itself? Read more

Latitude Bar & Grill Review

latitude bar and grillLooking for a great after work social located in Midtown Manhattan, I suggest you stroll to Latitude Bar & Grill.  Located in Hell’s Kitchen, it has 3 floors to have a drink, grab a bite to eat and two step while you’re at it.

It was a ladies night and my friends and I decided to give it a try. The music was bumping, nice bouncers at the door and the dance floor was packed. We decided to go to the rooftop since it was a nice summer night.  Great view, drinks were flowing and people were mingling.  What I love most about this place is the vibe. It is very welcoming; you can wear your business skirt, or throw on your 4inch heels and glam it up.  The crowd is very mixed and everyone is there just to have a good time.

If you’re looking for a chilled place to mingle, have a good drink and listen to good music, Latitude is the place to go.

Located at 783 8th Avenue (Between 47th & 48th)
New York, NY 10036

*TIP* Order the French Fries, the 3 dipping sauces are DELISH!

Slane: Restaurant & Bar Review

slaneLocated in Greenwich Village, Slane Irish Bar has a relaxed with a dab of funk personality. Friday night DJ played all old school R&B, pop and hip hop hits. The crowd loved it. Most people were sitting at the bar and at the tables, but some were on the dance floor jamming. The space isn’t that big so it can get crowded very quickly.  They serve food until 11pm. Of course, I missed the cutoff but the menu looked great.  Ladies night every Thursday 8pm- 11pm; all beer, wine, and well drinks- half price. I must check that out. *Tip* DO NOT DRIVE! Parking is NON-EXISTING.
