I'm sitting cross-legged on my therapist's couch 4 months after my husband's announcement that he wants a divorce when my therapist informs me that he thinks I should start dating again.
I had told myself and others that I was going to take time off to concentrate on myself for once. Between a husband and three boys, I didn't know who I was anymore.

Things That Make You Go Hmmm…Caption Winner
A couple of weeks ago, I started a new category of posts called Profile Photo Fail. Our inaugural image, seen on the left, was sent to me by friend and reader, Jen. Thanks, Jen.
After considering all of the captions left in the comments section of Things That Make You Go Hmm, I selected Byron’s as the winner of the caption contest. Not only was his caption funny, but it was probably eerily accurate in terms of what the man posting this photo might have been thinking.
Byron is the author of The Byronic Man, and I am a subscriber and frequent reader. I haven’t figured out whether or not he is bi or ironic, but he’s Byronic and he’s funny and you should totally go check out his blog.
If, as you’re cruising the online dating world, you happen upon a funny profile picture, you can send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and, if it makes the cut, I’ll include it in Profile Photo Fail. No penis pictures please. That’s a whole different category.
