Giving Thanks and a Birthday

Screen Shot 2014-11-27 at 9.52.26 AM

I started getting a few messages from folks on LinkedIn congratulating me. Surely, I'd done something shitty, but no. Upon further investigation, I saw that LinkedIn alerted the world that I'd been “working at” the Urban Dater for 6 years now. Really? Six years!? Wow.

I know I don't write as much as I once did, yet I do still date like a motherfucker. But six years. A lot has happened in that time. I've seen bloggers in this space come and go, yet the Urban Dater and a number of others I can think of have remained steady. What does it all mean? Maybe I'm stubborn? I'd like to think it's more than that.

the Urban Dater has never been about me. It's been about the content, about the brand and about the sometimes awesome, more often than not crazy, world of online dating. This is an online dating blog (and one of the top ones, I might add).

It was never my “goal” to run this site as long as I have. And I've thought about walking away from the project several times, but I can't do it. It keeps asking for more of my time and my resources. So that's what I'm going to keep giving it.


A lot of work and a lot of contributions have gone into making this site what it is and that's a success. Yes, YOU make this engine go. All of our readers and all of our sponsors. THANK YOU!

I'd also like to give a big fat shout out to our Managing Editor, Betty Mars, for being awesome and wrangling articles and authors and just for being a super brainy dame that keeps me on my toes. Good things are coming.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your friends and family (those of you that observe it at least and if you don't still enjoy your loved ones. Okay?)
