The disappointment of dating in Las Vegas was enough to make me consider leaving. Then I had an epiphany. Because there are no nice guys, they really should not be allowed to play a factor in my happiness and life decisions, including where I reside. After removing men from the equation of deciding whether to remain in Vegas or move to a new town with greater dating potential, … [Read more...] about Dating Las Vegas
Lollie note: The following is an excerpt from a book that I'm currently writing called There Are No Nice Guys: A Collection of Erotic Tales and Life Lessons. Enjoy. What are you looking for? It's always the first question. No chit chat. No getting to know me. Right after matching on a dating app, he just quickly wants to know what it is that I seek. Maybe it's a … [Read more...] about There Are No Nice Guys
After 17 years of living in and loving Las Vegas, I have decided that it might be time to exit. While this is a transient town with people arriving and going daily, leaving Las Vegas is something that I didn't really expect to happen to me. I love this city and the community.

But when a man shows a certain level of affection or admiration for … [Read more...] about How to Tell a Man You’re Not Interested in Him
Before you judge me, just hear me out, please. First of all, I would never ghost a guy I was dating or with whom I was in some kind of relationship (or "situationship"). If any kind of friendship or feelings of tenderness exist between a man and myself, I would never end things by cutting off all communications with him and leaving him with no explanation (which is what … [Read more...] about Confession: I Totally Ghost Guys and Have No Shame About It
As a feminist, I have a huge issue with the whole never-ask-a-lady-her-age rule. Why? Because as a lady, as a feminist, I'm not ashamed of my age. I'm forty-fucking-three years old, and I've earned the right to be proud of it. Of course, I look about 10 years younger, so maybe, just maybe, I'd feel differently if I looked 43. But still, I like to think I would be just as … [Read more...] about Go Ahead. Ask Me My Age.
