Things I’ve Learnt From Online App Dating

App dating. It’s one of those things; you can’t judge it until you’ve given it a go. As weird as it sounds, it actually taught me quite a lot. It brought to my attention aspects of myself that I didn’t realise and taught me how to overcome them. It taught me social skills that I ...

Well, That Escalated Quickly…

I have something to confess to you all. This is simultaneously good and bad news so you might wanna prepare for this. Did you read my last dating post, To Be Continued? Well this is part 2. And what can I say, I don’t want to use the B word just yet, but it’s going ...

To Be Continued…?

Guys, I don’t think you are going to believe me when I say this, but I actually went on a really nice date. That I enjoyed. I know, crazy right?! But don’t worry, it still provided plenty of dating diary material because well, it’s me. And stupid things happen to me. How it happened: Move ...

What A Sexcapade…

Mum, dad, if you are reading this (which I know you are cause you’re my biggest fans); please stop. And I know you are also going to ignore me so, this must never be spoken about. Ever. Up until now, these diary entries have been very PG, so I thought it was high time I ...

LDN Is A Big City, But Apparently, Not Big Enough…

First of all I’d like to apologise for my silence over the past month, I’ve been VERY busy and alas, dating fell way down on the priority list! I’ve been on holiday (a cruise around the Caribbean, casj) and while there were several members of male staff that were suitable dating candidates, it’s a fireable ...

Double Dating – Right Up My Alley.

Singletons of the land, lend me your ears and prepare to rejoice because I bring to you the news of a new dating app I’ve discovered. Finally, an app that adds a little more excitement to the mundane task of endless first dates. It’s very much like Tinder, with the whole swipe right, swipe left ...

The Problem With 21st Century Dating

  Bare with me today guys, this is an appeal for help! As we have already established, dating in London is hard. Everybody is in their own world, goes about their business, are always rushing about, blah blah blah. Unlike in smaller towns or cities, people don’t really have regular hot spots that they visit ...

The One With Too Much Alcohol

How It Happened: So I met this guy on Tinder and this was actually a second date (believe it or not). The first was just a lunch time coffee which I didn’t feel the need to write about – nothing exciting happened and I promise you, this one is SO much more entertaining. But he ...

When Your Fave Couple Crashes Your Date…

This is quite a long one, so I’d pop the kettle on, grab a blanket and settle down for the evening if I were you… How It Happened: This was another Tinder date – we bonded over our love for books and orang-utans. We chatted for a bit and it took some time to find ...

The Blind Date

Believe it or not – these still happen like they used to in the glory days, except gone is the romantic ‘I’ll be standing under the clock tower with a red rose in my suit pocket’, replaced instead with a text that reads ‘are you the girl standing underneath the Starbucks sign?’ – It’s far ...
