Last night PR powerhouse Claudia Ross invited me to dinner at Park Tavern, the new North Beach restaurant Michael Bauer called the “Stars of the 21st century.” While double fisting champagne and pinot grigio and sitting next to the pixie-licious Emily Morse, of course our conversation quickly fixated on sex and relationships and “everything in between,” as Emily would say. And it didn’t help that we were passing around a top-secret, new kind of female vibrator – but that’s another story!
Being in a relationship is about compromise, Emily and I agreed. I have always been relatively independent, a lone wolf of sorts. So whenever I do jump into something serious, it’s become somewhat of a survival strategy to have to set some boundaries. I could never be in a 24/7, co-dependent, never out without the other, type of relationship. My life has no set schedule, so it can get pretty hectic: juggling writing assignments, fielding pitches, meeting new sources, attending events, interviewing, following up, etc. I need the time to decompress, and just be by myself some days.
