About Me: My name is Cindy Thomas. Actually, that’s my pseudonym. If there wasn’t so much stigma against mental illness, I would blog under my real name. I have a graduate degree in the social sciences. I have studied psychology, sociology, and social work.
I started writing about 20 years ago. Since then, I’ve written sporadically and for various reasons. I’ve written to escape, hide, express anger, and vent frustration. I’ve written because I was anxious or depressed and didn’t know what else to do with myself.
Now I write because I enjoy it. It is therapeutic. I see it as a way to prevent slipping into anxiety and depression. I write sort through my experiences, feelings, and thoughts. Otherwise, I too often get stuck in unproductive (circular or overly negative) thinking.
About this blog: This blog is about dating, sex, and relationships. On this blog, I will share my dating secrets. I’m not talking about dating best practices. Far from it. I’m talking about the things I have done within the context of dating, sex, and relationships that were so incredibly stupid, I could only share them weeks, months, or years after the fact. Or, certain stupid experiences I will share for the first time on this blog.
This is one of three blogs. The other two blogs are specifically about work and life. I created Cindy, Working as a place to write specifically about work, since whether I like it or not, it is a big part of my daily life. And finally, Cindy, Living is where I write anything and everything I feel compelled to write about that doesn’t fit into the previous categories.
