About Krista

Hey there!

My name is Krista and I think dating is hilarious. What is especially funny about dating is that everyone realizes how awkward and funny being put in a first date situation is; however many people are unwilling or unable to just roll with it.

This blog is dedicated to all of the twentysomethings trying to navigate through the dating world, specifically the people who just can’t seem to get a grip on things.

We’ve all been there and none of us know what the heck is going on, okay?

I hope you are able to laugh at my awkwardness and fall in love with my charm. πŸ˜‰ Kidding. I’m hardly charming. But there’s no way for you to know that; I am just another person on the internet hiding behind a computer so for all intents and purposes, I am irresistibly charming.


I really need to edit this page one of these days, but a few updates: I am no longer single, though I will always have a special place for “Single In The Suburbs” in my heart no matter what stage of life I am in. I am currently dating someone in the military who is deployed in the Middle East. He will be home in January, and I can’t wait.

    Hi Krista! Love your blog … keep up the good work! I want to send you some information regarding a client of ours, Flutterate. It is a Google Chrome extension available for download that allows you to rate dating profiles on all popular dating sites for accuracy. It was designed to improve the online dating community – making it safer and more efficient. Is there a good way to contact you so I can send you the press release? Would love for you to try it!

    Many thanks!

      Aww this just made my day, thanks for sharing! Also I can TOTALLY relate to the sleeping thing… I’m a terrible sleeper and it’s awful! I’m sure inspiration for writing will strike for you soon, though. πŸ™‚

    I found your site doing some hopeless google searches, been living in the parents basement the past year after quitting an industry that I didn’t like. Had some poor luck finding women around my area (big time suburbs).

    I got a new job that is going to allow me to up my standard of living and I’m getting a snazzy new 1 bedroom apartment.

    You give me hope that not all the quality girls move to big cities.

      I’m so glad you found my little blog! First, congratulations getting out of a job you didn’t enjoy. I hope you like your new one a lot better; I think it’s great when people can love what they do.

      Second, I absolutely know there are amazing girls in the suburbs, cities — whenever! I have wonderful friends all over who definitely struggle to find the right kind of guys to date. I do think it can be really hard at times to find a good fit, as we’re all so unique and looking for different things in life, but there’s a really great girl out there just waiting to meet a guy like you, so don’t give up hope. I had to go on SO many bad dates to find someone who fit what I was looking for, but in hindsight that was a really small price to pay for a great guy.

      Aaaand lastly, I love that you used the word “snazzy,” haha, I don’t know if I’ve ever really heard anyone else use it before! πŸ˜‚

      Anyway, congrats on all the big life changes, and good luck in the dating world! I know it can be tough sometimes, but try to enjoy it while you can. And let me know when you do find that special someone; I love hearing all of y’alls stories! (I obviously tend to ramble a ton, so I appreciate a little rambling back at me). Take care!

        I appreciate the response, I had forgotten that I bookmarked your blog. I don’t subscribe to the whole there’s a girl out there waiting for every guy thing. I don’t think guys can afford to bet on things just happening, it’s the guys job to make things happen. I mean look at your new guy he drove over to see you every weekend 3 hours! That’s what I’m talking about, make your own luck.

        The new job is great I think it’s going to work out pretty great. The apartment has some quirks but it’s pretty nice and I like being back in my own place. I’ve been chatting up ladies around when I can and trying to get some decent tinder dates going. It’s tough getting girls attention in their mid 20’s but I attract 18-20yo’s and women 31+ like flies. I’m thinking I may end up with an older gal, my experience is they are more invested and know how to communicate. We’ll see what happens, best of luck with your new guy.

    I woke up this morning and just wanted to say “Thank you” for your offer of a prayer and a chat, although, I didn’t email you (I am kinda shy like that…). I really appreciate your kindness.
