Cuddle buddies 

Laying in bed this weekend enjoying a post coital cuddle I felt content for the first time all week. Thinking about this the following day I realised I often enjoy the cuddles more than the sex. I guess it’s the comfort of having someone close and there is something about this time that I love….

The one that went up a mountain

Now as full disclosure the person this post is about is actually who inspired me to write a blog.  He has several of his own including one about his dating trials and tribulations (I didn’t know about the dating blog at the time) and after telling him some of my horror stories he suggested I…

The one where I wasn’t his Disney princess

This date was my first from using dating apps and clearly an omen of what was to come!! It was also a good lesson in learning to trust my gut instinct as I almost cancelled the day before after having reservations but didn’t as I would have felt mean. I’m clearly too nice for this…

The one I worked with

I have pretty much met all the guys I have dated at work. I vowed that my husband would be the last one but a moment of boredom resulted in another liaison which I’d rather forget about. The sex was good, in fact I had the most intense orgasm I can remember having for a…

The one that tried to strangle me

You know the phrase everyone you meet is a lesson or a blessing? Well this guy definitely fell into the lesson category. We matched on bumble and chatted for a few days and he suggested meeting the following week for a drink. Over the weekend we spoke quite a bit and he suggested bringing the…

The one that lived with his mum

One of the problems I’m facing being single at 34 is that most of my friends are married and have children, they don’t have the will or capacity to go on nights out to scout potential men with me. To be fair on the one occasion I did go out I hated the flashy bar…

eHarmony – A site for lazy daters

Having spoken to a few friends about online dating several recommended eHarmony as a good site to try. Almost everyone knew someone who had formed a relationship from this site.  I was told because it was a paid site there would be people on there that were more serious about wanting a relationship. Hummmm….. It…

The one that was over before it began

The chat was going well, we have a few things in common. He was successful, loved his job and family. The conversation moves to Whatsapp and you agree to meet this week. You have a couple of misgivings, but decide to go with it and ignore them. He is messaging quite a bit, seems keen….
