Unrequited Love

I've mentioned before that my first ever kiss was with Katie Patterson, after her big sister locked us in the shed together and wouldn't let us out until we touched lips. Katie, however, was not my first love. Well, perhaps love is too strong a word as I was a mere child, but it was... Continue Reading →

Introducing the Swiped Out Podcast

I love podcasts. I listen to loads of them, covering subjects as diverse as football, F1, comedy, current affairs, economics and more. I love hearing new, interesting and/or funny opinions on everything as I sit on the train or drive to work, or even while pottering around the kitchen at home. A couple of months...

Chase me

"Play it mean and keep them keen". So says the dating advice that has been handed down from generation to generation. The psychological idea behind this old adage is one of scarcity increasing desirability; if your positive feedback and comments are rarer then the other person will crave them more, and will therefore work harder...

How to ask questions on dates

He used an analogy about not wanting it to be like a tennis match of questions and answers and more like a football game of keepie-uppies. Now, weirdly... Continue Reading →

Why I love the Twitfam

I've been relatively blessed in life (despite believing in a grand total of zero gods) in that I've somehow managed to gain some great friends over the years. I made a decision very early on in life to try to only surround myself with people who make my life better in some way, and boy... Continue Reading →

Marginal Gains

Getting better at something is hard. Like, really hard. Although it has been debunked, the common adage of 10,000 hours of practice being needed to make you an expert at something* demonstrates that significant improvements are not something that come along overnight. It's easy to accept this when it comes to learning a new skill,... Continue Reading →
