Ten Tips on Fuck Buddies

Location, location, location.  You’ll never manage to meet up if you live 45 minutes away from one another. Keep it simple.  Sex at either one of your houses is perfect.  Trying to find someone else for a threesome complicates things.  Asking your buddy to join them at a fetish club is weird.  Simplicity is key….

I’m back..!

Hello my lovely readers, I’m back! Not with the excitement of new-found love (like I secretly hoped I would be), but rather because life has continued it its usual vein of single mishaps, and I just couldn’t keep away from my Mac any longer! So what’s to come? Tinder, Bumble and Spareroom(!) dates Speed dating…

You know you’re getting old when… Guest Blog

My best friend and I had a competition: half an hour to write about being an adult in 2017. Here’s my entry. Here’s his entry: Why is it that, as a grown-up, our most important milestones in life (18, 21, 25 and 30) seem to be fraught with reservations (OMG I’m getting really old, where…

Your future girlfriend will thank me.

I taught you how to dress in the style you seek.  I taught you which neck and sleeve lines look good with the way you do your hair.  I demonstrated how some colours suit your skin and hair colour, and how some don’t.  In the minefield you found jeans to be, I taught you which…

Find your core.

Your core is kindness. A friend recently said. Kindness is your soul.  Do not change.  Be true to your core even if others fuck you over.  These ‘others’ can be any ‘them – us’ group.  This year, the ‘others’ have been men.  They have screwed me over again, and again, and again.  And I’m fed up. …

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…

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…

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…

To the 20-somethings who can’t get off their phones:

In a world where Millennials are glued to their phones, let’s have a reality check: Waiting by our phones isn’t achieving what we hoped it would. Having our phones to hand isn’t making our future love interest call. Checking Whatsapp isn’t going to prompt them to message. So let’s put our phones down.  Fortunately, we…

Adult life, on fast-forward

30’s the new 20. They said. You’ve got ages to start worrying about all that grown-up stuff. They said. And I listened.  But over the past week or so, many of my twentysomething friends have seemed to suddenly grow up; they are: moving in with their partners, buying properties, trying to procreate, actually pregnant. I was under…
