Date 11 – Breaks up the week

So in the spirit of being open (see my last post on vibrational energy), I decided to open up my search preferences - the age limits specifically. After the last date with a guy who was in his late 40's, I thought younger is definitely more my thing! I dropped my age bracket requirements which... Continue Reading →

Date 8 – Zoom Boy Bye

I was introduced to 'Date 8' via a match-maker who says that I fit the profile of what this guy (6ft+, 45, Uk/ Ghanaian mixed race, London entrepreneur) is looking for. Fantastic I thought... he sounds right up my street. The match-maker gave me a good description and said he would be in touch to... Continue Reading →

Date 6 – Mr Right Now

After my lovely dates with Mr Law (dates 4&5), I still was not feeling any passion. 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 →

Drip feed dater

What is this you may ask? Well a quick Google search will bring up a couple definitions of 'drip feed', but not necessarily in context of dating, but this definition fits my definition perfectly: Drip feeding is essentially the process of scheduling the delivery of content to the user, so that they don't get all the content at once.google search...

40 and looking for love.

Wow there is a headline to make them swipe left! Something mysterious happened when my dating profile updated at the turn of my 40th birthday… What happened to all the matches? Suddenly my match ratio was as slow as the district line with signal failures. I kept swiping right but alas no matches. Ok, ok,... Continue Reading →
