A breakdown of the mind… Chapter 2: My 800 pound gorilla

Have you ever woken up with absolutely nothing in your head aside from fog, or dark grey cloud? It’s an odd thing to describe, but on that Saturday morning, the morning after that Friday spent working from home and blubbering in front of the painter, i woke up empty. I felt hollow. I thought of … Continue reading A breakdown of the mind… Chapter 2: My 800 pound gorilla

Confessions of a singleton: when your chat-game sucks…

I swear to god, I was put on this earth to entertain. Entertain in a manner that pertains to destroying all future prospects of having kids, and not dying alone. I met a guy on a night out in London on Saturday... again. Obviously, I’m not a normal person who meets people sober or in … Continue reading Confessions of a singleton: when your chat-game sucks…

“A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money”.

I’ve been away for a while - from writing, I mean. I guess for a multitude of reasons, including having nothing of any value to say - and yes, my dating stories are of great value, humours and ever-so-slightly embarrassing... Last night, I quite by chance ran in to a friend of mine who, with … Continue reading “A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money”.

To The Men I’ve Dated, This Question is for You…

‘Dear failed love interest, Please could you kindly take this time to complete a very short survey of your experience dating me. All feedback is welcome, and your time would be most appreciated. The kindest of regards, The girl you bought dinner’. What is wrong with me? Okay, maybe too much? Well let me tell … Continue reading To The Men I’ve Dated, This Question is for You…

Modern Dating: How Does it Work and What to Expect?

I'm a believer in a fairy-tale. In the old-school love story. 1950s carnival. Guy sees the girl playing a game at a stall, he goes over and strikes up a conversation, and the rest is history. I once even read a story about an older couple, on Instagram. When asked how they met, the man … Continue reading Modern Dating: How Does it Work and What to Expect?

Love

Love. A word recognised the world over. Four little letters that bear the most weight of any word within the English language. One syllable that can change your life forever... It's a gift being loved and to love someone. A gift we often don't realise we have received until it's gone. Not only is it … Continue reading Love

The Circle: An Almost Crude Explanation of Our Societal Future

Last Saturday night was one I spent very much at home on the sofa. Having had a busy few weeks and an... eventful Friday night out with my sister and cousin, Saturday night was for staying in. Gladly so too. I took this rare opportunity not to catch up on the first episode of this … Continue reading The Circle: An Almost Crude Explanation of Our Societal Future

First Date Don’ts…

Have you ever been in a situation where you’ve been on a really amazing first date, but the person you were seeing never followed up for a second or even texted you back? So I’ve been in both situations, one where I was ghosted after the date, and also been the person to say that … Continue reading First Date Don’ts…

It’s a Numbers Game

Readers, I am currently writing to you from a rather gloriously sunny beach on the Island of Pag in Croatia. A remixed version of Ed Sheeran's Shape of You is blasting through the sound system of Aquarius club on this interesting party Island, and after a week at Fresh Island Festival, I have a few … Continue reading It’s a Numbers Game

Enlightened… A Change in My Date Game…

‘We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.’ – Buddha. I believe that the universe sends us signals, if of course we are entirely open to them, or at least willing to take notice of the pattern of events … Continue reading Enlightened… A Change in My Date Game…
