Online Dating – Pete the Plate

    For those of you that read my recent online dating post, ‘7 reasons why I haven’t responded to dating messages this week’, you may have seen me mention Plate Man in point 3. I went on to say that I wouldn’t let his apparent obsession with collecting plates put me off, and we were […]

The Love Letter In The Cafe

THIS IS MY SHOCKED (POST-CYCLING) FACE   I had a very eventful Sunday morning. Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin.   Dexter’s football match wasn’t until 12pm, but rather than laze in bed all morning (well, I did some lazing), I decided to go for a bike ride. I know! The weather was beautifully […]

Dating: The One Where A Man Called Me Fat

    My morning started out by finding I had forgotten about a banana in the bottom of my bag, the soggy remnants of which I then went on to grind deep into the material of my bag with my laptop. So I now have a banana splattered handbag and a damp Macbook.   It […]

Whatever Happened To Romance?

Dating Dilemma – What Would You Do?

      I have a dating dilemma.  Yes, another one.   So I ‘met’ a guy online and we chatted for a couple of days.  He’s local (a big plus) but the banter level was quite low.  Bad times.  Anyway, turns out he works in my local branch of a certain menswear store which, […]

10 Things I Hate About Dating

      I’ve recently come across … *cough* … a fellow #3dates3mths dater, Jordi from @30somethingLDN.  #hottie.   I’ve been having a nose through his blog because let’s face it, when it comes to dating men, I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I’M DOING.  I was hoping for The Answer on his blog.   I […]
