Since splitting from my husband in August 2014, I’ve been on an intense journey of self-discovery. I was neglected and ignored during at least half of my 12 year marriage and, dammit, I needed some attention. I started serial dating almost immediately. Being a single, attractive, fit, 40-something “MILF” in San Francisco has proven to be quite fruitful. Join me here as I write about my expedition: the death of my marriage through life as a single dating mama. Oh yes, I kiss and tell!
I was in a serious relationship with Tex from March 2015 to July 2016. He’s mentioned a lot in past entries. He’s one of the first guys I met post-separation and, while our relationship was troubled, it was a great relationship for me in a lot of ways. I felt nurtured for the first time in my life. It was a relationship that filled all of my physical needs and most of my emotional needs.
After 4 months of aggressive serial dating since splitting with Tex, I once again found myself in a relationship. Hayden and I became exclusive in mid November 2016, then he abruptly broke up with me in late January 2017. We remained close friends and eventually and organically found ourselves in a monogamous relationship again by June 2017. Our relationship was better than ever! However, I broke up with him in September 2017 when his heavy binge drinking started affecting our relationship. I haven’t heard from him since.
I’m dating again and [mostly] loving it… but I do yearn for intimacy and connection with someone special.
I almost named this blog Mama Does San Francisco but thought that was too racy. Also, I don’t wear stilettos – they’re not my style – but I thought the name sounded sexy.
