Chapter 2: A Micro Romance

April 20, 2017


A Micro Romance. We’d shared a first kiss in his car a few nights before my birthday. Ah-ha! So this ‘love-at-first-sight’ thing still exists, I thought. He was cute and funny, and it was more than lust as we bonded about being in the same place our lives. He got my angst, shared my quest […]

The Halloween Ghost

October 31, 2016


I experienced my own ghost this halloween. I don’t really know what to say. Things seemed great. I met a great guy. He said that proximity didn’t matter in the grand scheme of things. He seemed to be chasing me and we had lively, wonderful conversations that put smiles on our faces. It’s pretty perplexing when […]

I had a great bowling date

September 12, 2016


Since I implemented my “3 key rules for dating success” I have seen a sharp turn in the right direction, involving a rather nice 35 year old chap from Ghana/US, and a sticky bowling ball. Forgiving that he was 30minutes late (usually a black mark in my book – but he’d had a taxi fail) I […]

One Week in the Life of An Internet Dating Singleton.

April 26, 2015


Internet dating is a tease and flows into your life with varying degrees of success. Sometimes it lifts you up, makes you feel good, and takes the edge of those exceedingly fun evenings in with Mum and Dad. But it can also be a let down. From guys meeting you and telling you to your face you […]

The classic, the nomadic and the ‘Great Love’ – which relationship is yours?

April 19, 2015


I have been doing a fair amount of personal development on myself. What’s new! But hear me out… Caught in what feels like ‘forever singledom’ (since my last major break up a few years ago – actually it’s nearly 4 years ago! Dang.) I am trying my damnedest to break the patterns of the past. […]
