So I’ve mentioned before that I have some friends in weird and wonderful alternative lifestyles, and one of those lifestyles is the kink community (a.k.a BDSM). All this means for me is that it’s something that I have a reasonable amount of knowledge on (far from an expert) and respect for, for you, it means … Continue reading Safety first – online dating and Kink
I’ve finally gotten back out there after the rebound incident, and I’ve started to notice a trend to my dating. Most of the dates that I’ve been on have originated from apps (if anyone out there has figured out a less tech heavy way of dating, please tell me!) and I’ve found it impossible to … Continue reading How do I know if they like me?!?
So I’m almost, but not quite, a year past my rebound pain, I’m feeling a little less tender talking about it. I don’t know about others, but for me, when I came out of the long-term relationship, I was very beaten down and broken up. When it came to dating, as I’ve mentioned here before, … Continue reading Ouch! Rebound!
So I’ve finally branched out on my internet dating, and I’ve gone and joined Plenty of Fish alongside Tinder. A colleague recently informed me, whilst many drinks in, that Tinder is for getting laid and Plenty of Fish is for finding a relationship, and ladies and gentlemen, I think after 18 months of singledom, it … Continue reading Online Dating – Zero degrees of separation
So… this is one of my most favourite dates over the last 18 months and although it didn’t materialise into anything for various reasons it still has a place in my heart. Last Christmas (and yes… I’m singing Wham! too), my first ever Christmas as a single woman, was very odd. Before I get into … Continue reading Fun with festive dates
A shorter post this week, though one of my more memorable dating experiences. After my short-lived relationship with ‘The Ghoster’, which in hindsight probably constituted a rebound, I got back on the horse (or should that be under it… oh god… no, maybe not) and headed straight back to Tinder. Given recent experiences, this time … Continue reading The first dating disaster!
As a quick preface on this one, I feel like I should have posted this at Halloween, in keeping of the theme of ghosts, but alas.... I was not quick enough! After the utter hilarity of my first Tinder conversation and the loveliness of my first date, I decided it was time to really put … Continue reading The ghost
It was a few weeks into my new singledom that my first date came along… and as much of my love life to date has started, it was through a mutual friend. This is where things start to get a little messy! I’d mentioned previously that I’ve a few friends in ‘alternative’ lifestyles. For the … Continue reading The very first date!
After a few days of swiping this way and that on Tinder, I finally matched with what seemed to be a nice guy from down the country. Now given that I'm technically from down the country, I really didn't hold this against him, and he mentioned that he was going to be moving towards the … Continue reading My first Tinder conversation
So after the semi disastrous Fibbers night out, I realised that bar hopping probably wasn’t going to end up with me finding a suitable date, it also made me realise that I might need a different wing woman as when I go out with my cousin we just end up drinking and dancing rather than... … Continue reading Tinder 101
