has launched a small blog network that includes a reality-tv style dating blog called See Alyssa Date
. The blog will feature the actual dating experiences of reporter Alyssa Shelasky. Huffington Post's Eat the Press explains
how this dating blog will work. You can also read Alyssa's introductory post
where she welcomes readers to her love life.
Maybe I'm just too good at being single. Maybe I'm just not ready for a relationship. Who knows, maybe I grew up watching too many soaps. These are things I ask myself when I wonder why, after all my relationships, hot dates and hookups, Iím still so single.
I left New York three months ago to escape a future-less relationship with a guy who couldn't commit (I know, shocker). I am still madly in love with him, some might even say addicted to him, yet forbidden to even say his name to friends and family who know it will only cause more heartache.
Until this guy, I had never really had my heart broken. I'd always been the one to walk away (which isnít necessarily easier): Two years ago, I called off an engagement to The Perfect Man. Something just wasn't right. I was having panic attacks while registering for cappuccino makers and matching bathrobes.
