Trapped in a co-dependent relationship?

June 11, 2016


I recently created a useful tool for finding out if I was in the right relationship with the right person. I’ve called it the Relationship Checker. It came about because I was getting tired of never knowing if my current beau is the right one for me. Always led by my heart and less so […]

To love, or not to love

June 6, 2016


“To love, or not to love…” Sat here in my parent’s place outside the hustle and bustle of the city, i’ve been recalibrating after a stressful period overseas. For two weeks now i’ve been living the life of a 60-something retiree, and I gotta say, it suits me. Leisurely breakfasts with pancakes, fresh coffee and hours […]

October 9, 2015


I was walking down the street last night on my way home, and I was contemplating everything i’ve achieved in the last year. It’s pretty mind-blowing. If I was to reflect on this journey i’ve been on this last few years even – would any of it have happened if i’d had the one thing […]

[Day 3] What missing someone means

October 7, 2015


During the last year I’ve tried my hand at casual dating. Not really one to have ever thought I was capable of it, I thought i’d give it a go – I wanted to be treated with respect along the way, but thought that it might be possible to do ‘grey area’ dating, where you […]
