Emotional hills

When I was about 15 years old I was a bit of an athlete. I was one of those annoying kids who just found it relatively easy to do the basics well enough for cricket, football, running and more, so was on all the school teams and competed loads. At one cross country race we... Continue Reading →

Being better, not bitter

It appears to be a truism, that after adultery the guilty party walks away winning, leaving their partner with no relationship, self-doubt, low self-esteem, trust issues and all sorts of other problems. There are pithier ways of saying it, but it's rarely the "victim" that comes out on top, at least in the short to... 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.

1AD

Years are funny things. They are a man-made construct to mark the amount of time that it takes for the earth to travel around the sun once. In the grand scheme of things they mean nothing; I am literally no different now to how I was yesterday. Adding another day onto my age hasn't made... Continue Reading →

Comic-on Point

I am a multi-faceted man. I love politics. Sport. Digital. Reading. Blogging. Socialising. Music. Movies. Cooking. Dating. More "adult" activities. Public speaking. Crushing my enemies beneath the heels of my boots. Cleaning. Ok, perhaps not that last one, but there is a huge range of things that I am passionate about to one level or... Continue Reading →
