About the Blog
The blog started as a response to the reality of dating in Los Angeles — a place I jokingly referred to as the place “Where Dating comes to Die.” The early blogs cover my earliest steps into the dating pool and became about my observations about life in general. From the early days of the blog, I pulled ideas and then wrote the 10-episode web series. The blog is now largely dormant, but this website houses many of the videos and pitch pieces from the pilot that we hope to make into a series. Stay tuned for updates!
Where Else You Can Read Me
I write national travel pieces for Examiner.com which you can find here: http://www.examiner.com/single-girls-travel-in-national/patricia-steffy. In addition, I write more personal travel stories at TravelingWithoutaNet.com. Come visit!
Material and/or financial incentives may be received as a result of my involvement with sponsored programs, and that will be noted at the bottom of each sponsored/guest post. But all editorial content and opinions are those of Dating in LA and Other Urban Myths.
PATRICIA STEFFY was born and raised in Ohio. She attended Kenyon College, earning a degree in international studies, focusing on economics and the Soviet Union. Naturally, this meant she spent almost as much time rehearsing for performances with the College’s dance company as she did studying Russian. Subsequently, she received an M.A. in international development, focusing on business and economics, from American University.
The beauty of a liberal arts education is that in addition to spending 16 years working as a business development analyst for an international corporate law firm, Steffy was inspired to pursue her interests as a writer and film producer. As co-owner of Circe’s World Films, Steffy has been involved in co- and exec-producing a number of feature and short films ranging from broad comedy to psychological drama, including the award-winning short Touch.
She is currently developing Dating in LA and Other Urban Myths which is based on the popular blog of the same title (datingandothermyths.com), and has recently published My Letter to Fear. This series of letters, essays and conversations are based on both Steffy’s personal experiences and interviews.
