Meeting Mr Right

Like to date your mate?

They know everything about you: have seen you lounging around in sweats without make up on; you’ve told them all about the dates you’ve been on, the action you are getting (or not). It’s your best man friend. Have you caught yourself checking them out and maybe even fantasied about your friendship developing into something…

Not keeping up with your dating admin?

You are watching your favourite TV show, whilst distractedly shopping online. Your bored fingers are flicking through the categories – clicking shoes into your basket, “hearting” things for later, umming and aaahing over the expensive jeans. Occasionally the window shopping will satisfy you enough that you close the app and forget all about the gorgeousness…

Picky swipers

Once upon a time, it was a simpler dating life. Unless you were being set up, you would have met your man in person ahead of your date. Whether you were chatted up in a bar or met someone on the tube, before online dating, you would have used your initial instinct to say yes…

The good, the bad and the very, very ugly

I wanted to write this because I thought it a crime not to share some of the experiences I have had with online dating. Re-entering the world of dating as a 35 year old single mother was not something I was at all prepared for. It didn’t take long for me to realise how the…

Dumped Pre-Date!

It’s the 21st century. We’re meeting the majority of our potential suitors online. You’ve been matched with someone; swiped, liked, tapped, poked or any other myriad of options to find a date, and have started talking to a like-minded man.

Would you date your ex?

“Back with the Ex” is an Australian reality TV series featuring former couples who want to give it another go. It’s had our team reminiscing about their past and contemplating if we have unfinished business with old lovers. How many of us are thinking of “the one that got away” or the guy we didn’t…

Drunk texting

Our mobiles should have built in, “Don’t use your phone you are wasted,” sensors which shuts them down as soon as our fumbling fingers and vodka breath start sending seriously misspelled texts and leaving slurry voicemails. You know the drill… you start the evening promising you won’t make any contact with your ex, or the…

Date ready

You have been texting, calling, stalking him on Facebook/Instagram and convinced yourself he could be the one. Now the time has come: THE FIRST DATE!   The outfit You may have a great pair of boobs, legs up to your armpits or a bum like JLo, but the first date is not the time to…

Single & loving it!

It’s funny that when asked if you have a boyfriend and reply with a “no”, it’s often assumed that you are looking for one. Sad and depressed like Bridget Jones at the thought of being alone. Hello people, not every woman on the planet wants to be in a relationship! Some people find it really…

Where do I stand?

Have you ever been dating someone (or at least, think you are dating someone) but really have no idea what’s going on or where you stand? You’re too scared to ask the question because, as a girl, heaven forbid you come across as being needy. We’re all trying to get along at the beginning of…
