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. … Continue reading The Four-date Rule

“Be The One Who Never Stands Still” – Sure, Until I Burn Out By The Time I’m 30…

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) urged students within the Times Top 100 Graduate Employers annual guide, to ‘Be the one who never stands still’. A source of inspiration, and naturally something I’m sure we will see underneath countless Instagram images, including some of my own… However, is it wise to be advocating such intense pressures on millennials, who are … Continue reading “Be The One Who Never Stands Still” – Sure, Until I Burn Out By The Time I’m 30…

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…

Who Pays? Let’s See Shall We…

I get this question all the time from people. It's a confusing one, especially within the 21st century and the desire for a woman to be all things equal to a man... Maverick and I have had this conversation quite a bit, and it's a common pet peeve of his - and many a guy … Continue reading Who Pays? Let’s See Shall We…

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… 

Powerful Women: Let’s Remind Ourselves Just How Capable We Are

Of late, I have found myself becoming utterly obsessed with the way I look. I battle with this constant feeling of not meeting societal expectations. Not being pretty enough to be noticed. Not being attractive enough for myself. Not being enough of the physical ‘arm candy’ that we have come to believe we should be. … Continue reading Powerful Women: Let’s Remind Ourselves Just How Capable We Are
