‘Boy, Man Up’ – Know This, You Are Not Alone. I Understand You – I Am Just Like You…

A few weeks ago I focused on an aspect of mental health and social pressures faced by girls. Inspired by ‘Most Girls – a song by Hailee Steinfeld, it sparked a conversation about how attitudes towards this topic need to change. However focusing on girls, is only one chapter of a very intricate story… Unfortunately … Continue reading ‘Boy, Man Up’ – Know This, You Are Not Alone. I Understand You – I Am Just Like You…

“I Wanna Be Like Most Girls…”

I’ve been rather angry lately. Maverick brought this up a few weeks ago actually, which made my temper even worse, but I think I know the underlying reason why… I want to be pretty. I want to be found attractive. I want to possess all the superficial qualities that the world tells me that I … Continue reading “I Wanna Be Like Most Girls…”

Change… Why Do We Always Think That It’s Bad?

So I was chatting with a friend of mine today. Banter was being thrown in all directions, and then it changed. It got more serious. My friend told me that I had changed in the time that we had known each other, and it was because of the gym. This comment wasn't a positive one. … Continue reading Change… Why Do We Always Think That It’s Bad?

Thank You Mr Uber Driver, For Commenting On The Size Of My Body – And Not In A Good Way… 

I went out Friday night. Partying the night away, my friends and I were out until the wee small hours of the morning, which is pretty standard for us on a night out. Cut to home-time, and its time to order an Uber (after a trip to McDonald's - obviously). I catch my Uber, but … Continue reading Thank You Mr Uber Driver, For Commenting On The Size Of My Body – And Not In A Good Way… 

‘Play The Game, Girl’, He Said. ‘Cause He’s Playing With You…’

Dating in the 21st century sucks. It's awful. It's lengthy, problematic and is becoming as cut-throat as the U.K. Job market... It's all a game. A game of who cares less. Care less and you win. Show interest and you will lose. Every time... Social media makes people overly accessible and too easy to both … Continue reading ‘Play The Game, Girl’, He Said. ‘Cause He’s Playing With You…’

Unrequited Love – ‘But He Doesn’t Like Me Back… Why Doesn’t He Like Me Back?’

I watched a video yesterday by a relationship guru called Matthew Hussey. He's hilarious, and made some really good points about the entire notion of unrequited love. In short we are insane. As humans, we are crazy. Why does the notion of someone not wanting us or liking us back make us more attracted to … Continue reading Unrequited Love – ‘But He Doesn’t Like Me Back… Why Doesn’t He Like Me Back?’

Should I Take A Leap Of Faith And Ask Him Out?

I am a massive believer in female empowerment and women making the first move. I am. I’ve said this before, and providing we are willing to take the guy out, then I think more women should be inclined to do the asking. However, as I frequently do when I am in a situation when it … Continue reading Should I Take A Leap Of Faith And Ask Him Out?
