Hello Kissing Frogs Reader,
I’m Marie Clark, 50-something dater and virgin blogger. I live on the east coast of the U.S. outside a major metropolis. After a 10+ year marriage, I find myself somewhere I never thought I’d be…divorced and dating, again. Eek! It’s like I’m back in high school but without the Dorothy Hamill hair cut and the midnight curfew, which I broke only once. I mean it’s embarrassing when your dad tracks you down and catches you steaming up car windows. Kissing Frogs Blog is about dating, the good, the bad and the laugh ’til you snort funny. It’s about trying to navigate the world of on-line dating without a GPS. It’s about sharing dating stories so that you nod in agreement and say “yeah sista,” shake your head in disbelief and shriek, “no way,” or laugh ’til your sides hurt and tears stream down your face. I write these stories for you but I also write to help me process and understand what is not easy to understand: dating in a world of instant communication and unprecedented choices. But, if not on-line dating, then what’s a girl to do? I’ve tried Match, Bumble, Coffee Meets Bagel, and The League and will share my experiences on each.
Come along with me as I dive back into the pond and kiss a lot of frogs in search of the one thing that I’ve never found before, true love. Will I find it? Who knows, but you better believe I’m going to keep on kissing frogs and trying.
P.S. Full disclosure, Marie Clark is not my given name. Wait. What? If I used my real name, do you think I’d ever get a date again!?!
