A different kind of Valentine’s Day.

I’m a feminist but sometimes I worry I’m too independent. I’m surprised at how hard I’ve found it to be in a relationship again. Over the past two years, I have grown and changed and I was so eager to get into a relationship with the right kind of person I worry I’ve steamed ahead…

Broken Boys

Broken Boys You are not a counsellor to heal all the distorted childhoods. You are not a hospital to mend all the broken behaviours. If a boy is damaged, it is not your job to do what his mother did not.Put your heart and soul into loving him, But don’t expect to plaster up the…

Mind-reading

How am I meant to know what you are thinking? How do I know you won’t be like the rest and disappear? Is there a way I can find this out without scaring you away? Is there a way I can avoid this sinking feeling that it’s happening again..?

When ‘no’ doesn’t mean ‘no’.

Sorry for the silence, I’ve been on holiday lots recently.  I went to Ibiza and now I’m writing this sitting on the beach in Rhodes, watching the sun go down. Ibiza is one of my favourite places in the world, and I absolutely love the nightlife.  What I don’t like, however, is that this is…

You.

You disarmed me.  I wasn’t ready for your suave nature. I wasn’t me. I wasn’t not me, but I was a different version of me. You have an aura about you.  And it’s drawing me in.

The hook-up culture that is 2017…

Single Millennials have dug themselves a grave. We’ve created a hook-up culture where, if we’re not willing to participate in a NSA (No-strings-attached) relationship, someone else will.  We can have free sex whenever we want it.  Women have fought, and continue to fight, for the right to be as sexually liberated as men and not…

What’s your ‘Scary Age’?

I have also always wanted to be a Mummy.  Growing up in a big, loving family has given me strong family values and when I was younger I presumed I’d be married with a baby on-the-way by the time I turned 27.  Evidently, this is not looking likely.  And I’m surprised at how little this…

The Bar Man

We’ve known each other for ages.  We’ve exchanged flirty messages for months.  We finally met up a few weeks ago; right when I had hit rock bottom with guys and needed to inject some fun back into my life.  The date was so easy, it felt natural and right.  I went in knowing you were…

Possession.

We’re in our 20’s.  There is no need to sit on top of the guy and snog his face off in the pub.  I was talking to him.  We are friends.  I know you’re seeing him, and shagging him.  And that’s fine.  I did that last year.  It didn’t work out. You didn’t seem very…
