Meeting Mr Right

Sweet or a psycho?

A little about me… My name is Beth, and I have been single for a very long time. I used to tell my friends all of my dating stories and they always used to respond with “You could write a book about this stuff Beth”, so I decided to go start writing it all down….

If he wants you, he’ll come and get you…

“But I mean does he like me? You know like actually like like me? I messaged him back yesterday morning and he’s seen it but not replied, and he just posted a picture on Facebook and Instagram which says he was active 10 minutes ago.  It looks like he’s changed his Tinder photo and he…

Don’t be late

You have secured a date and spent all day chatting to the girls about how excited/nervous you are, you’ve been shopping for an outfit and had your hair done. You arrive at your rendezvous hoping he’ll be there before you but he hasn’t arrived yet. You make your way to the table to sit and…

All or nothing?

Me: “There has to be another way. I am sick and tired of going on date after date and at best meeting a nice guy who I don’t fancy in the slightest, have no desire to take his clothes off or have him return the favour, we mutually agree to go our separate ways and…

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. Conversation is flowing, you have tons in common, you live near each other and you…

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…
