“I hope it wasn’t too weird :)”

Last weekend, I went on a date with a guy who I had met IRL rather than through a dating app.  (The first date I’ve had of this sort since July when I met The Wrong Guy).  When we first met, he was fun, flirty, confident and attractive, so I asked if he wanted to…

“She’s hot”

When asking male friends about the girl they are newly dating, they immediately tell me how hot (or not) she is.  Initially, the guys rate her value based on how attractive they find her, not how suited her personality is to their own personalities.  I want to hear what she’s like, what her interests are…

We are who we hang out with.

Lots of us set ourselves life goals to reach by certain checkpoints in our lives.  I used to, and I wanted to tick off x, y and z by the time I reach 27.  But that’s less than 18 months away and I’m reconsidering my chosen career path and I’m still very much single.  So…

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…

7 daily contradictions of my version of feminism

Don’t assume I need help with hanging this picture, but when I ask, be glad to help.   If my computer crashes, don’t move me to the side and fix it within 5 minutes, show me what to do and I’ll fix it for myself.   Don’t expect me to make dinner and then wash…

A double disappearing act.

I was optimistic.  We had met in real life and I really thought we’d manage to meet up this summer.  But you had plenty of excuses for why you couldn’t do this or that weekend.  And now I haven’t heard from you in a week.   You were attractive and confident.  You seduced me and…

I don’t think so.

Matched with a guy on bumble I say hi and he tells me he’s horny He says we should send sex photos to each other He gives me his number so I can send him sex videos I tell him he needs to take me on a date before I send him sex videos He…

Coupling up.

We’re not all coupling up, so don’t say that we are.  Some of us are working bloody hard to find the right kind of relationship, and I suppose that’s because some of us are more particular about what we’re looking for.  Or we set our sights further afield.  Or we’re aiming higher.  Or because we…

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…

The Fetish Club…

Or at least, the promise of one.   My friend has been speaking to a guy on Bumble.  He’s invited her to join him at an exclusive fetish club in London. She says he looks attractive in his profile photos, but this is through a mask.  In all 3, part of his face is covered…
