They don’t have time to “date around” several times a week.(actually neither would I). Women, being more vulnerable than men, are more hesitant to date online, so you get a situation where there’s a lot more men than women.
Aside from my own luck and the trendy radio ads and sexy commercials, it seems as if no one’s happy.
I promised to continue to share glimpses of my latest strong, independent women from Secrets, Lies, and Online Dating and here it is!
This time I’d like to introduce Marianne’s mother, Brenda, the sassiest one of them all. A woman that Liz had often called an old hag had replaced her. “We’ve been friends since grade school,” Brenda said.
Prior to "Housewives," Strong racked up dozens of guest starring episodes on shows like "St.
Elsewhere" (NBC, 1982-88), "Murphy Brown" (CBS, 1988-1998) and "Twin Peaks" (ABC, 1990-91), but none so infamous as her recurring role as the braless wonder, Sue-Ellen Mishkie, on seasons five and six of "Seinfeld" (NBC, 1989-1998).
Liz released a heavy sigh, rolled her eyes, and faced Brenda for the first time. At dinner parties, it’s always hard to sit a single.
She and her future "Desperate Housewives" (2004) co-star Marcia Cross both starred in "Everwood" (2002).
“So I should buy a gun and shoot myself,” Brenda responded, beyond annoyed at the insensitivity of the person she’d considered her best friend. Brenda realized the ladies were gawking at them with interest, but she couldn’t seem to care.
“Or could it be, I shouldn’t inconvenience my friends by reminding them that their husbands might die and leave them alone? Her shoulders drew together in a rigid manner, horror frozen on her face, and Brenda knew she’d connected with the truth.
Brenda clenched her fists, anger skipping along her spine and slamming into her gut. “Yes.” “But, because I’m no longer part of a couple, I’m being excluded?
” Brenda asked in disbelief, the realization leaving a bitter taste in her mouth.
I was curious as to what your real opinion is of online dating.
