Right now I am sitting in an airport lounge half way around the world, on my way to my holiday destination. I cannot wait. Unfortunately, I am travelling on my own (will meet my travel buddies over there only) which leaves a lot of time to think and over-think. Did I mention before, that I am an over thinker? Chronically. Sigh.
Various topics keep me awake, most of them involve men of course. One man in particular. I met him a year ago, and we have since only been in touch by phone or Skype, and met once a couple of months ago. In Paris of all cities! I loved it, we spent the most amazing weekend together. I adore this man.
So what’s the trick, you ask. He lives on the other side of the world, literally. You may wonder, what kind of relationship we have… Continue reading →
To not make you wonder and hold your breath and your fingers crossed any longer, I want to release you: there won’t be a second date after all… What a huge disappointment.
How I know this? Well, I guessed (!). I’m assuming that not replying to my texts for five days is a clear enough sign of ‘sorry, not interested anymore’. Which is fine, wouldn’t it be for the cowardice behaviour! Continue reading →
One topic that frustrates and angers me again and again (and this week is such a time) is the lack of willingness to commit. Not only to commit to romantic relationships, that would justify a post on its own.
I’m talking about Continue reading →
Well, the week did get better. Phew, I am a little relieved! I had a lovely first date. He was very nice, charming, witty and funny. We had lots to talk about and – most importantly – we will meet again! Yey!
Now the anxious wait for the second date starts. Continue reading →
I am slightly annoyed. I had a really lovely weekend, and then it was spoilt with a terrible first date. There are a few no-go areas and topics when it comes to first encounters, and all of them were mentioned during my date yesterday.
A first date should be fun and entertaining, with lots of banter and laughter and positive surprises. Continue reading →
I have mentioned it already: I don’t like playing games. What is the point? In worst case you only hurt the other person, it leads to misunderstandings, and you are not being yourself. And isn’t that rule number one (and in fact the only rule): always be yourself. Continue reading →
I am sure this happens to all of us. But once in a while I am wobbling, my confidence is running a little low and I’m thinking ‘What is wrong with me? Why can’t I find a man?’. Continue reading →
One issue I can’t get my head around is calling someone, I mean actually picking up the phone and talking to someone. It seems no one ever speaks to each other anymore.
It goes like this: you meet a nice guy and swap numbers, which means you would like to meet up again. Continue reading →
What’s your thought about dates on a Monday? If you had a busy weekend, you may be exhausted, or you are feeling the Monday blues. On Mondays I would normally prefer to stay at home, but… there are things a girls needs to do and if that was the only day the two of you were free, so be it.
So, I had a date on Monday. A Tinder date. It started with a busy day at work and Continue reading →
Dating can be a tough business. It’s exciting, creates those butterflies in your tummy and makes you grin like the cat that got the cream. But it’s also heartbreaking, with an endless stream of dreadful first dates, hours you wish you had spend on the sofa instead… I would like to write about my experiences. Every time I tell my friends about my dates, they say ‘write a book, it’s so fun’. But you know what, it’s not really funny when you are in the midst of it.
Dating in London is difficult who would have thought that – a city full of singles. But everyone is busy, rushing around, looking for more and better, swiping left or right and blocking again. I’ve had some strange dates, and of course some great ones. I fell in love and was hopeful quite a few times. With every heartbreak I think ‘this is it, no more’, but who could give up on looking for love?? I know, I should stop looking and it will come, but hey – how can I stop looking for love? How can I stop looking for my Mr Right? 😉
