The Dating Game

Being a single female in 2018 is tough. I’ve been playing the game, with lots of different opponents, for a year and still haven’t won. It seems for every ‘move forward three spaces’, my next turn resulted in me moving back a space. When will this game end?!

Your future girlfriend will thank me.

I taught you how to dress in the style you seek.  I taught you which neck and sleeve lines look good with the way you do your hair.  I demonstrated how some colours suit your skin and hair colour, and how some don’t.  In the minefield you found jeans to be, I taught you which…

Opposites.

What do I want? One was not this, that and the other enough. The other was too this, that and the other. But not enough of this other thing. He was perfect with this other thing. Has that thing affected my love map? Has that person affected my love map?  Undoubtedly.  He’s an alpha.  And that’s…

The wrong guy.

It’s okay…

It’s okay that: I feel the most empowered when I feel I look hot. praise at work, a fun evening with friends, a caring evening with family is enough to make me feel loved and valued, but it doesn’t empower me. when I drive to work I like seeing who checks me out, whilst simultaneously…

I didn’t believe in ‘too good to be true’…

What a phenomenal first date!  Every single thing was perfect.  There was so much chemistry.  It was a long first date – at least 6 hours out and about, followed by a sleepover. And wow, what a sleepover..! In the morning, you left for work with a genuine promise to text later that day. Oh…

A sexual history by numbers

1. We were together for 7 years.  Pretty wonderful, really. 2.  This was a little weird.  A different man’s body.  You were so fucking awkward afterwards. 3 and 4.  A fun night all around… 5.  The first one-night stand.  Nothing was okay about this. 6.  Gorgeous, younger.  A complete laugh.  We would continue hooking up…
