Love Monkey is pleased to welcome Richard Liso of Luv Blogger to our Love Monkey jungle. Good read here fellas!
When I was about 14 years old, I was a bit ‘hot’ on one of the girls in school. So I asked my mom, and she probably gave me my first advice in dating: “Just Be Yourself”
This is a very common and typical advice that we get in life. But do we really know what “being yourself” means actually?
In the dating world, it seems that we are kind of playing a game of “who is showing less interest”. We are “playing”, “gaming” and doing everything except “being ourselves”.
Let us welcome Summer Daniels, author of “Summer’s Journey” to the Love Monkey jungle. Please check out her blog via this link. The book entails a forty something, newly divorced Summer Daniels searching and longing for something different. Something fulfilling and exciting, somewhere far outside my ordinary comfort zone. Go with Summer on her journey of discovery. Explore with her. Touch, taste and feel with her. Lots more to come following her introduction to you in this first volume of a multi-part True Romance / Erotica series.
First, I would like to thank Summer for sharing her book with us and it has been a pleasure speaking to you over the past week or so. Volume 1 of “Summer’s Journey” was quite intriguing to say the least. This first volume is somewhere around 90% background story and 10% erotic content. The book commences with a little history about Summer’s broken marriage and the shortcomings that lead to it’s demise. Then we move right along to a new phase of her life, her wants and needs. We applaud her use of the English language and colorful vocabulary which definitely pulled us in with anticipation. The “meat” of volume 1 is compromised of a dating escapade with a man named “Mark”. I will not give away the details but I was absolutely taken aback with the details of this specific interaction with “Mark”. We at Love Monkey have never heard a dating story like this which actually lead to an intense debate in the Love Monkey jungle! Volume 1 of this series left us wanting more! We were also left wondering what Summer looks like because she sounds like one sexy, adventurous woman. We can honestly say that we need to see what happens in the next volume so we can end the debate going on among us and find out what happens next. Great job Summer! Look forward to continued reading.

Love Monkeys…why do we text our love interests instead of picking up a phone and calling them? Are we cowards? Are we lazy? I am a huge offender when it comes to this so I’ll throw in my 2 cents here. There are a number of reasons based on different situations where texting things so much easier on us.
Situation #1 aka being a coward:
We got a love interests’ phone number from a mutual acquaintance and want to ask the person out. Some of us may call hoping she doesn’t pick up and get her voicemail. Personally, I would rather send a friendly text message because rejection over text message is much less awkward and painless than on the phone or in person. In other words, men are cowards!
Welcome Sarah Hayes to the Love Monkey Jungle! We wanted to share with you a letter she wrote to the guy that recently broke her heart. She states her reason for writing this letter below which is why we wanted to share it with our readers. It’s real and can serve as therapy in one form or another to many of us. Take it away Sarah!
Before you read the post, please know that it is not meant to solicit any sympathy for me. Writing is how I process things and this is my way of processing what has happened to me, getting my feelings out there and thereby, hopefully, expediting the process of moving on.
You once said that I was better off if I stayed away from you because you were more likely to break my heart than make me happy. Well, congratulations. It turns out you were right.
You said you were interested. I said that I was too. But there was a bump, a big one, so you asked me not to go down the relationship road. So I didn’t. I honored your request. I listened to you rant and rave about how stupid girls are for weeks, all the while hurting inside because I knew they didn’t care about you like I did. But I kept my mouth shut. Because you asked me not to go down that road. I let you talk. I was there for you when you needed me to be, even though it wasn’t safe for my heart. I saw you needed a friend, and so that’s what I was.
This is an actual children’s book! I assume it was written by a Love Monkey that has yet to evolve! His name is Adam Mansbach. Check it out!

You’ve been having an online affair with a virtual lover, and now it’s time to end it. But how do you end a virtual affair? Here are ten ways for you to dump that lover or to get them to dump you, leaving you to become virtually footloose once again, while having a little fun in the process.
1. The Cliché:
“It’s not you, it’s me. I’m not the person I was when we began, and it wouldn’t be fair to let you go on loving someone that doesn’t exist anymore.” Hey, it worked when you were in high school, why shouldn’t it work online, as well?
2. The Stand-In:
You could talk a friend into pretending to be your new virtual mate, and have mushy conversations with them on the same site that you met the person you wish to dump. Who’s ever going to know, besides your friend, right?
