The agony of the blue ticks.

2 little ticks are making me paranoid. We had a good date, we’ve been messaging since, but the past few days there has been very little contact.  I sent the last message on Tuesday and he read it.  I sent a ‘Happy Friday, it’s the weekend’ kind of text.  He has read it.  He hasn’t…

Did it work?

I felt reluctant to go on last night’s date.  I matched with him on Bumble and we exchanged numbers after a day or so.  He seemed more keen than I was, probably because my trust in people’s profiles had been depleted since my previous date.  We were texting for a week before we met!  This…

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…

What an offer..!

I matched with a guy on Bumble and what follows is our very brief exchange:   Him: Hey.  Do you want to meet tomorrow for a bit of fun / sex? Me: I’m a dater, not a one-night stand. Him: Yes same here.  It isn’t a one night stand.  Have a bit of fun 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…

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…

What we’re looking for.

  Trying to work out what I want from a relationship has been tricky, and through making mistakes in dating people, I’ve mainly discovered what I don’t want.  But on Saturday night I figured it out with a friend.  What I want is balance. I want someone who balances with me: They have similar life aspirations They are at…

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…
