To Court, To Date, To Makeout

Posted on by Paul Roth

In the last month, I’ve heard a few women talk about how they aren’t going out on dates any more. One friend wasn’t sure what she wanted… Continue reading

A Beary Cute Date With Beignets

Posted on by Paul Roth

“You write these signs, don’t you?” she asked me as I made yet another awful zoo-related pun. I don’t, actually, but I do feel like I’ve the skills to do it. But the National Zoo in DC was the second part of my date… Continue reading

The Rest of the Story of S

Posted on by Paul Roth

When I posted my last piece about the date I had with “S”, I saw that I got a few visits and that was fun, but the only comment I got was from my friend, Sam of Yogitastic. So I figured that just about nobody cared about it. Then, much to my surprise… Continue reading

Cowboys and Aliens and Sushi and Kissing

Beyond that, though, I use that specific superlative because I like that I can interpret it both as “full of wonders” and “causing one to feel wonder”…

For Love of Women, Part 1: Self-Worth

Posted on by Paul Roth

I plan to write several installments on this topic (hence the part 1 in the title). I am ambitious, indeed, for a blogger who… you know… doesn’t blog. This topic, though, has worried at my mind for months now. You see, I think I love women and I want to tell you about it.

I don’t mean that I love several women, though I do. I don’t mean that I have sex with several women, and I don’t do that anyway. I mean that I cherish the female sex, I value its members dearly, and I want to do what I can to support and strengthen them. I think everyone should. Women are wonderful. I speak to you…

I think that I can legitimately say that I still have good relationships with all of my ex-girlfriends from the past six years.  All both of them.  It doesn’t seem … Continue reading

Love is not what they say

Posted on by Paul Roth

In my life, I have been in therapy.  The most difficult concept for me to accept when I was in therapy was the notion that any emotions and thoughts that … Continue reading

Traveblogue: ULHS 2008, POSTSCRIPT

Posted on by Paul Roth

I purposely attempted to keep my daily entries in my Traveblogue upbeat and positive, but I did have some thoughts cross my mind that were not quite positive.  If you’d … Continue reading

So… I was wandering around Amazon.com today and I saw that apparently “Sleeping Beauty” is going to be released on Blu-ray soon.  Which is great for all those little girls … Continue reading
