Questions Asked By Readers

So ladies and gents, I’m not quite back from my writing sabbatical on here, but I just wanted to share that I am now the dating advice columnist for the Seattle Examiner.

I’m going to be writing mostly in Q and A format, publishing questions from readers of this blog (anonymously) and dispensing advice. Come check it out, and as always, feel free to email me your personal dating concerns.

And just because I live in Seattle now, thought this coffee/love related picture was so appropriate!

    Wow, congrats on the new job! That’s awesome!

    I stumbled across the Examiner the other day when I was researching the Anacortes area for an article that I was writing and I found myself wishing I lived in a large city… but only for a moment. As far as cities go, though, I’d pick Seattle over most others! How do you like it so far?

    Well it’s nice to hear you’re back.

    Thanks John! Glad to be writing again on dating, that’s for sure!

    Lydia! Hey, Oh, I love it here so far. Well, you know this time of the year is warm so I’m happy. But I’ve ALWAYS loved the idea of city living. I want to be able to live in the downtown area of a city or town and bike around in a vintage bike wearing cute skirts and dresses. I know I know it’s a weird little dream. But I want to be able to walk or bike to local eateries and bakeries, pick up fresh flowers on the way home from work and pick up fresh food for dinner from a farmers market…and forget about driving places!

    Oh and thanks about the job! Are you interested in writing for them? They are hiring in Seattle for a travel examiner! Email me and I’ll give you the details if you’re interested.

    Well, I am interested in working for them, but I don’t know that I want to live in Seattle. Right now I’m stuck in Walla Walla a little while longer until I finish writing my thesis (NOT the type of writing I love…). I also like the idea of being able to walk everywhere. When I was in Poland I did that and it was very nice. I did wish I had a bicycle though. I guess I shouldn’t be so quick to say that I WOULDN’T like to live in a large city since I haven’t really done it… I visited Philadelphia this spring and really liked it- for about three days- and then I was ready to get out!

    Why were you ready to get out of Philadelphia? I think that I would like big city or small town living as long as I felt safe to bike or walk everywhere.

    At once glance I thoughy that this coffee page is a menu card without rates at the right side. Sorry, if you feel bad about this. Just have a look at the picture again and tell me if it is wrong.

    Well, I just feel a little confined and uneasy in the city after awhile. Or… maybe it’s because I was getting little to no sleep and dealing with some annoying drama in the group I was with! Either way. So do you feel really safe in Seattle, then?

  11. Midorilei

    I don’t actually live in Seattle right now (I live in Puyallup, suburb south of Seattle and Tacoma) but eventually I think I want to try living smack dab in the middle of downtown Tacoma, Seattle, Bellevue, or maybe a smaller town like Issaquah. Every time I’ve been in Seattle I’ve felt really safe though!

    Yeah, little sleep and drama can definitely make any location seem less than appealing! But imagine if you lived in the city, had enough sleep, not a lot of drama, woke up early even to step out of your balcony and sip on coffee and watch the sunrise and stroll the streets before everyone was awake and out and about. Imagine coming home to a loft and turning off all the lights and being able to see the beautiful city skyline. imagine weekly farmers markets you could walk to and pick up fresh flower at and local cheeses, organic fruits and vegetables and get to know all the vendors. Imagine having a spot, a hangout you frequent with your friends that you could all walk to every day after work. ….
