8 ways to be a little ray of sunshine.

Be confident in who you are and what you want from life.  At the age of 25, I’m pretty sure of myself.  I’ve had lots of good times and lots of bad times, each one shaping me into the woman I am today.  When I look in the mirror, I like what I see.  Yes,…

Your expectations

Maybe I gave you the impression I was interested.  Maybe I led you on? But I don’t think I did. I’m not sure why you thought I’d come back to you. You came round with a mate in the evening (let’s do the ‘friends thing‘), but you came empty-handed and drank me out of house…

10 years vs. 5 minutes

It’s Sunday night; the end of a long, crazy weekend and Monday morning is looming. After doing all the work you meant to do over the weekend, you’re about to have a chilled evening of catch-up tv. Then you get a phone call from your best mate, aka your ex. Bottom line is that he…

Disappearing Acts…

Sometimes people disappear when they have a new relationship. Sometimes people disappear even if they’ve been with their partner for a long time.

It’ll be Lonely this Christmas…

Single at Christmas – joyous or horrendous? On one hand, it’s a very sociable time of year with Christmas parties and dinners and lots of opportunities to meet exciting new people.
