Time to talk to the kids about racism

The US is on fire right now. Literally and metaphorically. The murder of George Floyd by police officers in Minneapolis shocked the nation to the point of action, with millions joining overwhelmingly peaceful protests across the country which have been used by their government to justify brutal responses from "law enforcement" officers. People are being... Continue Reading →

Top five fictional couples

Fiction gets it very wrong indeed when it comes to romantic couples. Whether it's Anakin and Padme (why a cultured galactic senator would be attracted to a petulant child is beyond me), any of the throuple from Twilight or Ted and Robin from HIMYM, writers seem to totally and utterly miss the mark when it...

A bit of a break

Time for a midweek parenting tale to break the monotony of dating posts, with "break" being the operative word. I've led a fairly charmed life when it comes to serious injuries. Until I started playing Australian Rules Football in my twenties I'd never broken a single bone in my body. Even now, all I've done... Continue Reading →

Why writing a dating blog is bad for dating

Having 10,000 spoons when all you need is knife isn’t ironic, it’s bad planning by the caterers. A free ride when you’ve already paid isn’t ironic, it’s bad timing at the fairground. A traffic jam when you’re already late isn’t ironic, it’s you being an idiot and expecting the Dartford Bridge to be moving smoothly... Continue Reading →

If you match with someone online... Continue Reading →

Out of the blue

With Game of Thrones ending so badly (which I'm both furious and curiously ambivalent about at the same time) it reminded me of possibly my favourite ending of any series ever - The Sopranos. Normally I'd add a spoiler alert here, but if you've not seen it by now you probably never will, and the... Continue Reading →

Introducing my kids

When I started this blog years ago it was intended to track my thoughts about dating and not really all that much more besides. I'd never done it before, and needed to find a way to process things without paying for a therapist. The title for it sort of popped into my head out of... Continue Reading →

Single life doesn’t suck

I appreciate this piece is a little late to the party and I've therefore missed riding the zeitgeist wave, but Emma Watson's words on being "self-partnered" have been all over the place recently and sparked countless discussions, debates and articles on both sides of opinion. In case you missed it, the UN Ambassador recently mentioned... Continue Reading →
