"We're always in the

This is what I write

Life is about the chase."

Bored Woman with MenFor whatever reason, I frequently have bizarre dating experiences, interspersed with the occasional nice ones.

Oh my God. You should blog about this!” exclaimed Calista Fox, right after the guy at the bar told me he needed to clean my aura and handed me his business card. A quick glance showed he was a Demon Cleanser.

Oh my God! You should blog about this!” wrote Calista Fox, right after we had a pleasant, nonsexual , smalltalk-filled conversation with a guy at RT – after which, I got an email, stating, “The best part of the chase is the scent of passion and the taste of the passionate. Chasing you would certainly be yummy!”

Oh my God! You should blog about this!” wrote Calista Fox, right after I told her about the guy I’d met at a Ten Minute Dating event, only to discover later, he was also dating the friend I attended the event with.


So … maybe I should blog weekly about this – about my dating experiences…

  • On a Monday, I’ll post a date and you can tell me whether or not you think it really happened.
  • Then, on the following Monday, I’ll give you the correct answer and announce the prize winners (those of you who guessed correctly will be eligible for a prize).

So, that’s two chances to win every month – unless I run out of dating stories, which is highly unlikely!

(And, BTW – names and details will be changed to protect the innocent – or the guilty.)

But, before I expose my dating joys and humiliations, I want to know – are you even interested in this? Will you stop by and cast your vote? Do you like my idea for the contest – or do you have a better idea?

  2. Calista Fox says:

    OMG! LOL What a riot! Yes, I do keep saying you should blog about your dating experiences. They entertain me — may as well share with the masses! :-)

  3. RachelleChase says:

    Yes, well, I’m glad one of us is entertained. :-) Perhaps no one else will be interested, so I’ll be able to keep my dignity intact. (LOL)

  4. Jolene says:

    Oh my gosh..this sounds like fun.. of course i havent dated in 20 years.. something tells me even though hubby is in kuwait again he might not approve..lol..

  5. Minx Malone says:

    Oh yes, let me live vicariously through you. I haven’t been on a real date in forever, my hubby isn’t that creative LOL


  6. Fedora says:

    Ditto what Minx said–we’d love to be in on your dating fun ;) Thanks for the fun idea, Rachelle!

  7. RachelleChase says:

    Jolene, yeah, I think your hubby would have a fit. :-D

    Minx and Fedora, “…living vicariously” and “…dating fun.” Hmmm. You might use different words after I share. :-)

    Thanks for the encouragement … I think. (LOL)

  8. Margie Whitten says:

    Wonderful idea …. fun and a contest to boot. Do it. Please.

  9. Rachelle Chase says:

    I kinda have mixed feelings about it, Margie. :-) Thanks for stopping by and sharing your “vote.”

  10. jim perry aka Damian Green says:

    I would like to know what is behind that mysterious smile you’re wearing behind that luxurious indigo blanket.

  11. gypsy says:

    yep i do,lol we could share stories LOL

  12. Amy T says:

    Hearing about the dates would be entertaining, perhaps educational and sometimes terrifying, as I am about to re-enter the dating pool after 33 years (yikes!).

  13. Rachelle Chase says:

    Jim, a.k.a. Damian, I’m actually fully-clothed under that sheet – a tank top (with the straps off my shoulders) and black pants). Regarding the smile … well, I think the photographer told me to look like I had a secret, so I tried. See? The reality is not nearly so interesting. :-)

    Gypsy and Amy, you’ve given me some ideas…Great idea to include other’s dates in the contest! Would you be interested in sharing? I’m going to think about this angle some more. :-)

    And, Amy … wow. I don’t know what to say. I’m sorry to hear about the end of the relationship. Whenever you start dating, here’s hoping you have nothing but fun dates!

  14. Cindy Maday says:

    This is too funny. I think sending in best or worse dates is great, except some of us writers may claim the right to writing our own experiences in our books. I don’t have to many funny dating experiences but the meets have been hysterical.

  15. Rachelle Chase says:

    Cindy, the ‘meets’ count as a ‘date’ so you’ll have to bring them on! (LOL) And I think folks should write about their experiences. Lord knows I’m not going to ‘claim’ any other’s experiences with the plethora of choices I have of my own. :-D

  16. gypsy says:

    lol well it would be my old dates, been stuck to same fella for 17 yrs now

    but i have had some weird ones, like the time, he had a 68 camera, new carpet and everything, and i was 18 and had to threaten to throw up in his car all ovre the new carpet and seat covers to make him take me home, ( O i sat with my finger in my mouth, ready to gag myself all the way home, ffffffing butthole he was

  17. Rachelle says:

    Sorry for the delay in responding, Gypsy. I didn’t get an automatic notification that you’d left a comment, so I’m just now seeing it.

    Yikes! That’s a downright scary date!! I’m thinking you might be able to top my “interesting” dates.

    Congrats on your 17 years!

  18. match sites says:

    Hey Rachelle,
    Thanks for the fun idea!

  19. PG says:

    I’m new on your mailing list and I think a contest sounds great. Also, I would love to hear about your dating experiences-the creepy and the good!

  20. Rachelle Chase says:

    Thanks, match sites.

    PG, thanks for subscribing to my list. Well, my simple dating contest has grown into a huge project, so now I’m trying to figure out what to do. A common problem for me. LOL

    Thanks so much for your interest and glad you like the idea. Hopefully, I’ll come to a decision soon. Since you’re on my list, you’ll definitely be informed!
