The flirting contract

When I was at secondary school I was really into reading. I mean, really into it. I read a book or two a week; mostly sci-fi or fantasy novels (with the family I had I needed a little escapism, after all), but I read a whole range of things. As long as my nose was in... Continue Reading →

My most embarrassing date (so far)

Over the last month or so I've become a little more talkative on Twitter (come say hi @adatingdad if you're on there too!) and have followed some really brilliant and funny people.

Will & Grace, however, does not fall... Continue Reading →

Let’s discuss your intentions

I've recently mentioned that I've joined a local group for single people, and it continues to throw up some real gems. After recently being told that I should effectively read every word of a book before judging whether or not I like it, next up was being told how quickly to test the depth of... Continue Reading →
