It’s been a long, hot summer…

Sorry for the total silence for a very long time. This is because I found him! Prince Charming exists!  And he spends a lot of time in my bed… As summer comes to an end and working life resumes, I realise this guy I was going to have a casual, no-strings-attached fling with is anything…

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…

‘Oh fuck this is exciting. I mean. Cool, whatever.’

He was so nice; a far cry from the usual arseholes I seem to attract. And the problem with having a deep-rooted belief that all men are bellends is that when Mr Good Guy comes along, somewhere in my amygdala amongst the serotonin and dopamine, Mr Good Guy gets confused with Mr Perfect; aka Prince…

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 Update

To conclude our experiment: I chatted for a moment with a selection of matches, then the conversation fell silent. Result: Unmatched. The remainder matches didn’t even respond. Result: Unmatched. That is a 100% fail rate. I shan’t bother again.

Let’s do this!

When your relationship status has been ‘single’ for over a couple of years, you have to really consider whether it’s you who’s doing something wrong. And this is why I took the risk and asked my friends what I do that has resulted in me remaining single. Naturally, they said ‘nothing’. Then I asked my sister….

If it’s not you, it’s clearly me.

That apprehensive feeling before a first date is great; it’s what stops you from wearing the wrong thing or saying something stupid.  And if it doesn’t become full-blown terror, things tend to pan out well. Nearly two weeks ago I had the best date I’ve had in ages. I know this because I felt extremely…

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…
