“She’s hot”

When asking male friends about the girl they are newly dating, they immediately tell me how hot (or not) she is.  Initially, the guys rate her value based on how attractive they find her, not how suited her personality is to their own personalities.  I want to hear what she’s like, what her interests are…

You.

You disarmed me.  I wasn’t ready for your suave nature. I wasn’t me. I wasn’t not me, but I was a different version of me. You have an aura about you.  And it’s drawing me in.

Can I be optimistic about this one?

We met months ago at a party.  Not through an app, not online, but through mutual friends.  We chatted loads, you had witty things to say, I laughed a lot, my sister found you highly irritating.  But I enjoyed your company.  We spent a lot of the evening snogging. Staying in London with my sister meant…

Is this appropriate..?

Last week I was in hospital. What better way to pass recovery time than on Tinder?  Frequently, I paused to think about how inappropriate it was to be swiping whilst inserted with cannulas, drainage tubes and morphine surging round my body, but then I remembered how bored I was, how crap daytime T.V. is and how…

Walk away…

I ended things 4 days after my previous post .  We had a fun weekend planned with lots of socialising, but he was late on Friday evening due to a heavy one the previous night.  I spent the weekend being extra bubbling (it’s rare I have 1 social event at the weekend; let-alone 3!) and he…

How to Find the Perfect Partner

My housemate reckons he has dating sussed.  So here’s his guide to finding the perfect person for you: Use the ‘Quirk Rules of Attraction Venn Diagram’ It comprises of Sexual Attraction Physical Attraction Emotional Attraction All are equally important, and the best relationships involve all three elements. If you’re physically AND sexually, but not emotionally…

Well that ended as quickly as it started…

Sorry for the silence. Over a week ago I met someone and things progressed very quickly. It wasn’t right, so it ended as quickly as it started – much like this post. Later today I’ll write about it properly.

An Experiment – Part Two

About 6 months ago I conducted an experiment. I propositioned all my matches on Tinder with the line ‘Tell me something interesting’ and drew these conclusions: the majority of men on Tinder are boring, fewer will say anything to have a shag and even fewer are actually interesting (click here to see the post). I’m now repeating the experiment –…

Just for Sex: Compliment or Insult?

When did people stop exchanging numbers after sleeping together?  If you got on well enough during the evening to then actually have sex (and the sex was good), surely you’d be able to swap numbers.  You saw each other naked – why is it so cringey to ask for their number?  If you do manage to swap…

Making Plans

My friend said to me yesterday that the problem with being disappointed when a plan doesn’t work out with someone is that they didn’t know about the plan, and therefore, how can you really have an issue with it falling through? It’s strange how we live in a time where you can’t be honest about…
