My name is Ann St. Vincent. I am an executive businesswoman in my mid 40s. I am a divorced woman and a Mom; my son Liam lives with me half the time.
This blog is my journal.
The last several years of turbulence in my life – involving a sexless-then-open marriage and taking advantage of it, divorce, sexual reawakening, online dating – all while navigating equal custody of my son and trying to maintain a good relationship with my ex – inspired me to get back to writing.
Unlike many divorced women, I am not bitter or angry at my ex for the breakdown of our marriage. We both agreed we should go our separate ways. I had a 15-year almost totally sexless relationship, and once I was out of it, spent the first year or two getting my mojo back.
It came back with a vengeance.
I don’t regret my choices. I’m pretty happy. I’m not using a dating coach (yet). I fulfilled a lot of physical and emotional needs. I continue to put myself out there, and as a result, have a lot of disaster stories, but some great ones as well.
Life is fun and quite messy and I’m just figuring it out as I go along. For the last while, I’ve been ready for a relationship, but the right man eludes me. I’m an eternal optimist.
Everything here is true and my first hand, un-embellished experience, but the names and details of those I mention are disguised to protect the guilty. Enjoy.
If you are new to my blog, over 900 posts may be a bit overwhelming. Here’s how to get started:
My back story is best summed up in this post which I wrote on my blog birthday in 2014. I have also written a post called Who is Ann St. Vincent anyway, that describes who I am and what I share on this blog. I also have a page that lists posts written by bloggers who have met me (and not all of them were trying to get in my pants).
While I write a lot about men and relationships, both past and present, there is lots of other stuff here as well. Here are various ways to find what you are looking for:
By Category (You can also use the drop down box to find these):
Blogging & Opinions: Musings & opinion pieces, search term summaries, awards, and summary posts.
Dating: The stuff between one-night-stands and my relationships.
Dating Fails: Online dating comedy, awful dates, and generally bad experiences.
Family & Friends: Post-split adventures, my son, stories about friends.
Marriage & Divorce: My ex-husband, my marriage, and my divorce.
Quick & Dirty Encounters: Short-term sexual or dating experiences.
Relationships: Posts about longer-term dating I’ve done, or boyfriends I’ve had.
Sex: Stuff about sex or my sexual encounters.
You can use the search area to find anything, really. I have tags for recurring figures, which you can find on my “Lovers” page. You can also peruse the list of every man I’ve had sex with, which includes links to their stories.
If you know what/who you are looking for, just put http://annstvincent.com/tag/WHATYOURELOOKINGFOR/?order=asc in your browser and it will give you the oldest to newest post with that tag. For example, http://annstvincent.com/tag/Lewis/?order=asc will give you stories about Lewis, a recurring fuck buddy.
These pages may eventually be retired as my categories and tags take over. But they also list many posts I wrote on these subjects:
