Confessions of a Singleton…

So, Bristol has fast become one of my favourite places in the world. It has become a place for many a good story or two, for the morning after a pretty unexpected night out. Sunday night was of course, no exception. "We will just go out for a few drinks", they said. "Keep it chilled", … Continue reading Confessions of a Singleton…

“Men are from Mars”… Yeah, this couldn’t be more true…

I know a guy. A guy who always, always, always appeared to be interested. No, this wasn’t in my head, unless it’s somehow now been defined that “let’s switch numbers, send me pics of you in Brazil, we should grab some food, I wanna take you to this place with the best espresso martinis, let … Continue reading “Men are from Mars”… Yeah, this couldn’t be more true…

“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”.

I’ll Take You Every Which Way… Except Out On A Date…

‘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…

Flirting Whilst in a Relationship: Harmless, or a Blatant Act of Cheating?

I’m plagued with the topic of cheating. Conflicted with the thoughts of why people cheat. Is it animal? Is it unhappiness? With their partner? With themselves? Is it expected from men? Do we overly judge women when we discover that they are in fact the guilty party? As you can see, a lot of questions … Continue reading Flirting Whilst in a Relationship: Harmless, or a Blatant Act of Cheating?

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, … Continue reading Can Men and Women Ever Really Just Be Friends?

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

#MeToo, Weinstein, Feminism and #IDidThat

First of all, let me begin by saying no, I am not someone who needs to say that it has happened to #MeToo. It hasn’t. Part of what I am about to write will naturally cover the hashtag, the current noise around sexual assault and the all too negative perception and lack of respect of, … Continue reading #MeToo, Weinstein, Feminism and #IDidThat

“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…
