How to believe in Love

It’s 10pm in a pub in Angel. The floor is sticky, the windows are fogged up. Its 10 days til Christmas and the place is packed out with twenty somethings looking to rub up against each other in the name of not going home alone.

I, on the other hand, am three (bottles of) wines deep and in a well of self-pity. I am 24, totally batshit-bonkers-in-love and the object of my affection, my boyfriend, is ignoring my messages. Savage.

How to spot a Fuck Boy

If you’re anything like me, dating is no hand-in-hand-cutesy-let’s-feed-the-ducks-oh-lol-you-hit-one-what-are-you-like-walk-in-the-park.

At this point a cooling off to rival the ice age happens and … Continue reading How to spot a Fuck Boy

How to translate online dating chat

Ah the world of dating. It can be indecipherable at the best of times.

Take the time when I went on a date with someone I had met in real life only to discover it wasn’t a date but infact a weird business meeting in which he took me to a glorified pret a manger and then got his laptop out to show me his excel spreadsheet.

Which would have been fine except for the fact that I was wearing heels and a fur coat like a 20th century prostitute and had brought nothing with me at all.

If you’ve read even one of the posts on this blog you’ll be well aware of the peaks and (mainly) troughs of my dating life i.e. the guy that pinched my nipple without invitation on a posh street in Islington or the time i brought home the most beautiful man in the world and then behaved like a lunatic or the time I was an even bigger lunatic… yeah there’s been more troughs than peaks let’s just say that.
