I’m an optimist, not an idiot.

A month ago: Great date.  He kissed me before I drove home.  He texted me at bedtime. A few days later: I suggested we meet up over the weekend – pre-op.  He couldn’t for decent reasons. He disappeared for a few weeks; not even one text. What have I got to lose?  He’s already not…

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…

Reactions

  Last night I was at the pub with my boyfriend and two of his male friends.  During conversation, one of the friends mentioned he’d slept with another guy.  My boyfriend and the other friend were completely shocked; this guy was a self-confessed ‘man-whore’ and slept with many, many women.  The guys posed him with…

Does that ever work?

Him: “Where are we?” Me: “We’re in Pacha” Him: “Okay, I just got lost in your eyes” I wonder if this has ever worked for a girl?  Personally I giggled and walked away.

‘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…

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…

Half Your Age, Plus Seven: An Analysis.

In principle, this popular relationship rule is applicable to men and women.  Yet there’s a difference between a 23 year old guy dating an 18 year old girl and a 23 year old girl dating an 18 year old guy. The former will tend to be perceived as perfectly acceptable for both parties.  Whereas the latter…

I promise

To my future partner: I promise to never be one of those girls who wears a scarf to the pub. I promise to never be one of those girls who wears trackies to the bar. I promise to never be one of those girls who wears Doc Martins to a house party.   I promise…

Putting it all together.

“Those people who live their dreams are sad messes and the people who end up flailing behind are people who have their shit together” – Girls TV Series When Hannah, the lead character in Girls said this, it really struck a chord with me. My job is going fantastically well I have lots of super friends Family is as…

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. Other times, people can live in an all-consuming bubble of happiness where their only concern is for the one they love. This is fine if you’re the one disappearing from the face…
