10 things that go through my mind before a first date: What if I don’t fancy him? What if he doesn’t turn up? What if he’s rude / arrogant / mute [delete as appropriate]? What if he turns up late and I’m already 2 glasses down? What if I really like him and he doesn’t…

Date Week continued

So I went on the date. I was going to cancel but my friend convinced me otherwise.  I’m thrilled I didn’t cancel.  What a guy! Instant, mutual attraction. We have lots in common and the conversation flowed beautifully. He didn’t agree with everything I had to say; he challenged me and we discussed things. He made…

Date Week

1 – First online blind date in a while. I feel excited for this one (he’s attractive in his photos and he seems fun). He doesn’t really look like his photos and he doesn’t seem like he’d be much fun. I don’t think he fancies me; he doesn’t look me in the eyes very often….

The wrong guy.

What we had came about so easily. We met through a friend! Our first date was fun and chilled (it was novel having a coffee date when all I’ve had is drinking dates).  Being honest, I was going to cancel because I was interested in someone else – but he turned out to be a…

2 to 3 to 1 to 2 to 3?

I haven’t given up with Bumble; I’m still being swipe-happy (see 5 ways to get guys to respond on Bumble).  But I’m taking it all with a massive pinch of salt. ’ The likelihood that I will find my future boyfriend on a dating app is very slim, so I’m having fun using them (the…

Did it work?

I felt reluctant to go on last night’s date.  I matched with him on Bumble and we exchanged numbers after a day or so.  He seemed more keen than I was, probably because my trust in people’s profiles had been depleted since my previous date.  We were texting for a week before we met!  This…

There’s a flaw with online dating.

Or maybe some flawed people use dating apps to fetch a girl to date and fuck with her.   In our world of social media and dating apps, we all want to present ourselves in the best light.  We put photos up of us having fun, we post silly quips about how hilarious we are…
