CONTEST: "Love.....Digital Style"

Since the 4th of July is a day to celebrate the "fireworks" of love...I thought it would be an appropriate time to launch a new contest:

Love: Digital Style


Did you meet your current partner on-line?
Did you use a dating website?
Did that relationship lead to marriage? An engagement? s3omething long term? Or even a bundle of joy? ( or 2...or 3...lol)

Well, if you had a successful and positive experience on-line that has lead to you meeting your mate...then this contest is for you.

You have two ways to enter:

1) you can email us at Sex and the Southern Belle sexliesandemail@gmail.com  (with pictures preferably) with the tagline "Love....Digital Style"

OR

2) You can upload a YouTube video with the tagline "Love: Digital Style"... (being as creative as you can) answering the following questions...

  • What made you use an on-line dating service?
  • What made the site you used attractive to you? (Price, number of members, etc.)
  • Was this your first time using on-line dating or were you a "pro" at it?
  • What attracted you (or your mate) to your profile? Who contacted whom first?
  • How long did you communicate before meeting in person?
  • When and where was your first date?
  • How did you know this would be more than just an "online" date and something more?
  • Would you recommend on-line dating to others?


Contestants will be entered into a  prize pool  (shhhh...the Grand Prize is a secret!) and be featured once a week on Sex and the Southern Belle. Then, at the end of the contest, readers will vote on the BEST online love story. The winner with the most votes will win the GRAND PRIZE...(to be revealed at the end of the contest).

2018: A Year Without Fear

I used to make these lofty, resolution goals each year. The older I got, the grander my ideas became. That is until I reached the age of 30 and my entire life shifted.

At the time, I was divorced, living totally on my own, trying to rebuild myself financially and trying to figure out my next move toward happiness. That was at the time I started this blog.... which started out as my chronicling the dating and mating of a 30 something divorcee' in the South's Largest Metropolis. I was trying to date. I was trying to establish myself financially. And I was trying to find my purpose.

So much has changed in the almost 9 years since I started this blog. I've traveled alone. I gained and lost friends. I got into a Ph.D. program. I got re-married. I lost my mother, my best friend.... not to mention my uncle, cousin, and aunt. I gained a sweet baby girl.  I went from getting my bliss.... to trying to balance that bliss with my own life..... Yet in trying to find the balance, I alw…

Frat Boys, Toxic Masculinity and the #METOO Movement

(scene from Spike Lee's famous School Daze)

A few weeks ago, my sorority held its national convention on New Orleans. Coincidently, another fraternity was also holding their national convention in New Orleans. Naturally, the jokes, mostly in jest, played upon the fact that these two groups, full of single, attractive and smart folks would be "on the prowl" and looking to "hook up" in the city known for its strong drinks, Southern heat, and hospitality. It was all jokes until nastiness decided to rear its ugly head.

You had men in the other fraternity sexually harassing and being obscene to my sorority sisters who just wanted to have fun and handle the business of the sorority (and network.. and yes.. meet men in a somewhat safe space).  There were stories of men groping women. Men saying disgusting things and then being like "Well fuck you then" if women rejected them. You would HOPE and think that college-educated men wouldn't act this way.

But..…

The Ides of Birthdays

My 39th birthday is in two weeks.
*sigh*
You know, I feel like I write the same type of blog around my birthday every year. I get extremely introspective and pensive about the whole thing. But this is my last year of my 30s and I am feeling all of the feelings that have ever and could be felt. I hate trying to bring this up to folks.. who are always wanting to remind you of "well.. you got this.. you got that...". As if you haven't dealt with depression long enough to realize it doesn't matter what you have... if one piece is missing.. it throws it all off.
While yesterday was the 3rd anniversary of my mom's passing, I realized she wouldn't be here for my 40th. That was a hard pill to swallow. I thought for sure we'd be celebrating a lot that year... my Ph.D... a baby... a big, fancy car..... all of that. I only have one of those things so far but still... I was hoping that having her hold on at least until then would be the icing on my cake.
My life feels…
