Single Lady Wednesday 8 - Dana Chirps

I decided to do something different on this week's edition of Single Lady Wednesday. You see, I've become quite the expert at deciphering the truth out of the "sweet talk". So I thought I'd do humanity a bit of good by providing just a few examples of translations. 

All are based on actual events and conversations that have occurred in my life. Yes. Really.

"I'm an entrepreneur."

This one is so prevalent in South Florida. These clowns are broke ass fools that likely borrowed money from one of their 8 roommates to take you out for a couple drinks at a bar that smells so foul the fumes could melt metal.

"I have rowdy roommates."

Ah, yes. I remember when I was told this on a date with a guy. The date had been going pretty well, and then he very uneasily, much like a nuclear bomb, disclosed that he still lived at home. No, nobody in his family was sick. Yes, he had a good job. These types generally want a "mom" not a girlfriend. Hell nah.

"I need to hit the gym."

This is actually one of those rare cases where he is probably being honest. But there is a very high statistical probability that he is at least 15 pounds heavier than in his outdated profile pictures. 

"I'm a total gentleman."

He's going to try to sleep with you within 17 seconds of meeting you. 





Dana Podgurski

Hi everyone! I'm Dana Podgurski! 

I'm a foot in the mouth, tongue in cheek, head in the clouds, and heart on the sleeve kind of gal. I live for new experiences, but am a total sucker for nostalgia at the same time. I'm tough as nails, but am a complete softie for all things kids and animal related. I fly by the seat of my pants, and live for adventure. But I firmly believe that adventure is a mindset that one's self determines.

For work, I am a marketer through and through. Bringing brands to life, and content marketing are passions of mine. Many would consider what I do as nerdy, but I seriously dig it. I have been doing marketing contract work for years, and appreciate the variety it brings, and the relationships I've developed with my clients. To check out my work portfolio, or if you're interested in a partnership, click here.

For fun I love to create - writing/blogging, photography, and painting are my main three mediums of doing so. Feeling good and healthy is also high on my list, as it really lends itself to making everything more enjoyable. So I maintain a very active lifestyle, eat pretty healthy, and am outdoors as much as I can be. And if my blog didn't make it abundantly clear, I absolutely LOVE to travel. I spend any extra money I have on plane tickets, and feel so fortunate to have been to several amazing destinations both domestically and internationally. There's nothing more fulfilling than coming home from a trip and adding a been-there-pin to my map.
