Can Men and Women Ever Really Just Be Friends?

As J–Hus made clear to us that he ‘wanna get friendly with her…’ and definitely not meaning just as a platonic friend, I wanted to raise the question of whether men and women can indeed just be friends at all. I have a couple of really good friends that are guys. They are my confidants, [...]

The Four-date Rule

Four dates. Apparently. That’s how long a girl should wait before having sex with a guy she’s dating. Wait wasn’t that Mila Kunis’s magic number too, in ‘Friends with Benefits’?   No, this is not a statistic or average that Cosmo magazine came up with in their most recent publication, but instead Maverick’s average wait time. [...]

Rejection: It’s Okay to Lose Sometimes

'Rejection sucks! With every no, or I'm not feeling this, or I don't want anything right now, I feel as though the problem is unambiguously me. Honestly, I’m rejected even when there are no real tell-tale signs that it is going badly. Either that or I am blinded to it. That could be it. Perhaps [...]

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 [...]

“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 [...]

A Letter To The Broken-hearted

Hey you, yes you. I know you are hurting, and you are allowed to. It’s come as a shock; it has to us all. I just want to ask one thing of you, please don’t ever let this change you for the worse. You are a beautiful person, every part of you is. It’s your [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

She’s Just One of The Guys…

'Sometimes I feel like I'm too much of a boy'. - The thought alone frustrates me, yet I find myself thinking this more and more. Since moving into my new place at work, I've gotten to know one of the members of the finance team in particular. He's had his fair share of girl drama, and [...]
