Tick Fucking Tock

So its my birthday tomorrow, oh the joy... on lockdown during Covid-19 while (still) single and racking up another year in the 40 club! This lockdown is an emotional rollercoaster of ups and downs. One minute i'm feeling pretty positive and chirpy about the two conversations I've got going on with guys on text and... Continue Reading →

Flirty Dirty Chit Chat

So me and Mr Right Now are still chatting, which is a positive sign considering our first date could very well turned out to be a one night stand. Well technically it kinda is, as i've not seen him since Covid-19 took care of that matter. Lockdown has us all having to actually have conversations... Continue Reading →

Speed Dating Disaster

As we are on lockdown I thought i'd start to write about some of my dating chronicles... Have you ever tried speed dating? A question one is often asked when lamenting about the online dating scene in London. Well just before Christmas 2019 I decided that in the spirit of the festive season my single...

Dating in Self-Isolation

First of all... Stay at home! Let's not get it twisted, as much as I was enjoying my new dating life - I enjoy living more and am not about to put myself at risk of the Corona Virus for a random date. Even if he isn't so random. That was the predicament last week.... Continue Reading →

Date 6 – Mr Right Now

He came with complications and a whole lot of responsibility (3 kids and not quite divorced) which if I we had 'clicked' may not have been an issue. I mean, dating in your 40s means he is likely to... Continue Reading →

Date 5 – No pay, No play

So date five is a second date with the last guy I posted about... he suggested a date at a pretty swanky roof top bar, riverside in London. Yes, very nice indeed, I'm already impressed! Cocktails are flowing nicely and the live jazz singer is setting the scene, but I can't help feel that i'm... Continue Reading →

Date 4 – Bags of expectations

I met this guy on Tinder, he had a well crafted and intelligent opening and response. Conversations on Tinder can be so tiresome and boring, it's a rarity to have someone with actually something to say who moves the conversation on quickly to 'lets chat - I'd like to meet you IRL' (in real life)....

Date 3 – Friend zone

Date 3 was an interesting one... I'd been there before so wasn't sure if I could even class it as a date, but since we crossed paths again on bumble and both swiped right - why not! What do you do when you see a past date again on a dating app? Out of curiosity... Continue Reading →

Date 1 – Next!

Its January and things are drip drip dry with the drip feed dater so I’ve decided to get back on the dating apps to mix things up and ensure after a mad busy week at work I’ve got something fun planned for the weekend. So, swiping away I’ve made 3 matches and as I’m feeling... Continue Reading →
