Dating Doldrums

Today is one of the those days where you just wish there was someone to share your life with.  Someone to snuggle up to in bed while you watch films, someone to annoy while you’re trying to tidy the house, someone to just HUG.    As Annie Lennox so perfectly said, “I just want someone to hold”.

The Naughtier Rabbit Hole

Now, as I said the other day, the etiquette of this website is different.  Profile pictures tend to be of anything but the face.  What’s interesting is that once the face disappears, so too does the person, and people start to pretend to be things they are not, and all pretence at manners disappears.

The Thrill – and Crash – of the PING!

I’m now mid 40s.  A lot of men I’ve fancied over the years have hit their prime in that age group – George Clooney,  Pierce Brosnan, Josh Holloway, Antonio Banderas – but in Lincolnshire it seems the equivalent is to shave your head like Grant Mitchell and look like a serial killer on his day off.

Getting Back In The Saddle

In those 20-ish months, I’ve thought of rejoining the dating game.  And it took me a while to realise – actually, maybe it’s not a relationship I want, maybe it’s just COMPANY.   Do I want your angst and baggage, no.  Do I want to focus endlessly on you, especially if you are a dull-as-fuck whingebag?  Hell, no.  Do I want some damn fine kissing, Olympic-level spooning and occasional itch-scratching?  Well actually, yeah.

Brain Food 02.16

  Wow this is long overdue.  Here’s my latest cultural catch-up.  A LOT of things have been catching my attention recently, most of them super-good, so here’s what I’ve been loving – Let’s start with TV of which there is a LOOOOOOOT going on in our house. Since I gave up on nails, it’s been…

Daring to …. Dating Sites

  It was late and I was bored, so last night I decided to sign up to Match.com to see if I could find my future best friend and one man to treat me right.   Turns out Match.com is raaaaather expensive, so this afternoon, whilst looking at alternatives, I happened upon Zoosk.   Zoosk…

Saying Goodbye to The Crumpet

  I’m going to assume that if you’re reading this blog, you’ve come to it via my other blog, The Crumpet, and that you know that for 4, nearly 5 years, I’ve blogged there about nail polish, and that after  much soul searching and 2 years of nearly doing it, I’ve finally pulled the plug…

Tuesday

So this week started badly at work.  I’m good at what I do (managing a sales team), but for some reason, at the company I’m currently at, hitting that target just ain’t happening.  Do I think it’s my fault?  No, I honestly don’t, but that doesn’t stop my paranoia, anxiety and low self-esteem chorussing their…

Who Am I?

Today I’m going to start to get to the heart of why this blog exists.  Why I’m doing it, why I feel it needs recording, and what I hope will come from it.  It’s not a pretty story, but I really hope it will have a beautiful ending.   I’m going to start about 15…

1p a day

All my life I’ve been a spender, not a saver. Pocket money, treat money, wages, windfalls, gifts, birthday money, eBay profits – I always manage to find things to spend it on.  I’d love to blame it on having spent 15 years working in a bank, but to be honest, I think the problem was…

Are Facebook Friends Real Friends?

For introverts, and those of us who can’t be arsed to go out and socialise, Facebook changed our lives.  Suddenly, we could become friends with people on different continents, share journeys (nail art challenges, say) and unhappinesses with people who understood what we were going through.  Facebook opened the door to the world. But for…

Brain Food 01.16

  I thought it might be fun to document my “cultural” achievements each week, whether that’s binge-watching Netflix, or actually writing, or doing my nails.  Like all food, some is exquisite, some is bland, and some is junk of the guiltiest kind 🙂 I’m hoping – nooooo, determined – that as I go through the…
