Imagine everything you’re feeling that morning after a long night of drinking when you’re waking up to the headaches, nausea, fatigue and the frustration as you try to pull yourself together.  Now think back to some of your worst dating experiences and you’ll easily see the two feelings are eerily similar and writer Carmen Jones shares the good, not so good and downright ugly about the men she’s dealt with in the light-hearted blog called My Dating Hangovers.

In her 40-something years, Carmen figures she’s probably dated every type of man that could exist while trying online dating including the mama’s boy, the narcissistic control freak, the workaholic, alcoholic and even the psychotic yet still has somehow managed to maintain a little bit of her sanity.

My Dating Hangovers shares the uncut and raw experiences of a single woman trying to date in the mean streets of L.A. hoping to find Mr. Right Now.

Carmen’s work has been featured on several dating and relationship blogs including Cupid’s Library and The Sexy Single Mommy.

When she isn’t navigating through the battlefields of the online dating world, Carmen enjoys traveling, photography and public speaking with the hopes that someday she can indulge in all of these things with the man of her dreams.

She has dealt with the feelings of hopelessness that so many singles have experienced, but hasn’t given up the fight and in spite of having dealt with so many hangovers, hasn’t given up on dating altogether so Carmen plans on hoping and searching.

Until there’s a cure for the dating hangovers…

When she isn’t scanning through dating profiles with the hope of finally meeting a good guy who isn’t emotionally frazzled, financially zapped or living out of his car, she enjoys traveling, photography and public speaking.
