‘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…
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?
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’?

'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
When counting up the letters I have written, after this one it will be a total of three. Three real letters. One I will never send, the second, of a love to all those that have lost it, and this – the third and final letter – one of my faults. One which may – … Continue reading The Fault in My Stars
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?
‘I like big butts and I cannot lie’, I know, that’s song is in your head now, isn’t it?! #sorrynotsorry. I do like big butts. Not in the way that the song dictates, but due to the fact that society is fast embracing a woman with curves. Specifically, a woman with a bum. A societal … Continue reading Baby Got Back… But Should Specific Body Features, Be A Fashion Statement?
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
