‘Bent over, in the shower, on the bed, before work...’ Firstly, apologies for the rather explicit post that will follow, but my understanding of men and their behaviour is somewhat muddier than I thought... Secondly, the above was just some of the messages I got from a guy I met at a bar the other week. … Continue reading I’ll Take You Every Which Way… Except Out On A Date…
‘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…
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, … Continue reading Can Men and Women Ever Really Just Be Friends?
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
I think I am a bit of a commitment-phobe. I walk around arguing with both the world and my loved ones about how everyone else has someone, and I cannot seem to find anyone. At all. Ever. Except I can. I just don't think anyone has caught my fancy for long enough to want me … Continue reading Settling Down: Is It Just Me Who Almost Fears This?
'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 … Continue reading Rejection: It’s Okay to Lose Sometimes
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?
So I like to think I'm Beyoncé. Perfect features, a figure to die for – even when pregnant with twins – and a personality and drive that run circles around just about every human on the planet; yet on a scale of relationship to single, I don't really associate myself with the former. In fact … Continue reading Looks or Personality: What Matters More?
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
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…
