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 […]

He’s Just Not That Into You

I thought I’d give you a little dating update.  I haven’t been dating.  You’re welcome.   A combination of reasons, but I’ve enjoyed the break.  I’ve worked hard, enjoyed spending time with my eldest whilst he’s been home from Uni, I’ve reconnected with my best friend again.  All awesome things.  But now, as we head […]

Is It Worth Paying for a Dating Site?

    When it comes to dating sites, I’ve been round the metaphorical block, and I’ve got the mild heartache to prove it. So when an online friend mentioned on Twitter recently that she was debating dipping her toe in the proverbial man-pool (that sounded better in my head) … I thought I’d offer her […]

Whatever Happened To Romance?

      “Whatever happened to romance?”  I asked this very question on Twitter today.   ‘God’ (not sure that’s her real name) replied with a resounding YES, romance IS dead … and a few others echoed her sentiments.

Will I Ever Fall In Love Again?

      The strangest thing happened to me earlier this week (not remotely kinky, don’t worry) … but I realised I fancy Chris Martin.   Yep. THAT Chris Martin.   Coldplay’s Chris Martin.   Ex Goop’s hubby Chris Martin.   I’ve always thought of him as a little bit, well, pointless and vapid. Don’t […]

Dating: The Game Players

Dating is fairly quiet right now.  There’s someone I really like that I’m looking forward to seeing in a few weeks but until then, I’m just available for dates.  (For bookings, please see my agent.)  I had a date with a (much younger) guy last week and that’s about it really.   Oh, apart from […]

Should Bloggers Work for Free?

    So there I was, happily pottering away on my laptop, totally not Googling ‘Katie Price divorces again’, feeling nice and calm after having had a lovely facial this morning.  And then I got an email from a PR company that was representing a major brand.  And by major, I mean a MASSIVE brand. […]

Why Are Men Scared of Strong Women?

  As you may have gathered from my last dating post, the whole ‘falling in love’ thing isn’t going too well.   I went out with a long term friend, who’s in the very same position as I am, to talk about it and see what the dealio was.   We’re both in our 40’s, […]
