Dating and mental health

Life, at the best of times, isn't always easy. Even those who have a loving partner, are surrounded by friends and family, have a stable job they are good at and have no health or money concerns still find times when things just get on top of them. Life puts pressure on us all constantly,... Continue Reading →

How to break up with someone

It's the hardest part of any relationship: the end. It takes a lot to decide that a relationship is over, and if both of you haven't come to the same conclusion at the same time then it's going to be tough. Having "The Talk" isn't something that is entered into lightly, at least not if... Continue Reading →

Twitter roundup – part one

Yes, this is a lazy post, but I'm feeling in a particularly lazy mood. Back at the end of November 2017 I decided to join Twitter. Again. Obviously, I have my own personal account, but that was a little too well-known for me to actually be anonymous, so starting from scratch was the only way... Continue Reading →

My most embarrassing date (so far)

Better than a tough end to the year financially speaking. Better in terms of available time, as children grew... Continue Reading →

It’s not funny

We'd been messaging for weeks. She had been about to go abroad on holiday when we matched, so there had been no alternative but to get fingers to keyboards and chat away until she returned. It had been fun, light, carefree at first. I'd thrown in jokes, anecdotes and more gifs than probably I should... Continue Reading →

Game of Dates – Part One

I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan. If you’re not, well, I don’t think we can be friends. The show is quite simply breathtaking, and has arguably become the best tv show ever made (and I’ve seen half an episode of Mrs Brown’s Boys, so I know what I’m talking about). It's already been too... Continue Reading →
