Joan discusses Valentine's Day, martyrdom and true love and how they really show up in a relationship...
The most romantic day of the year - pfft - not if you've been dumped as often as Dee has on the Valentine's Day...
Mari Wallace just wants to be warm! Whenever we near the end of British Summer Time and are plunged back into GMT, I know that the battle with my partner, Alan, over the thermostat will soon follow. Maybe it doesn’t help that I’m American – and consequently used to houses being kept nice and warm […]
Well this is a first. Dumped BEFORE a date! Blue Eyes has been considerate enough to let me know that his gut-o-metre was telling him to kick me to the curb, ditch me, throw me to the lions, press delete, shoot to kill… He said he didn’t want to mess me around. Yet, I put […]
Blue Eyes came from nowhere. There he was smiling in nearly every photo, in different locations, out with friends, on holiday… not posing and pouting in selfies taken in his living room (seriously – do women like that?). His profile was well written (good spelling and grammar), warm, charming, funny without trying too hard… I […]
Be careful what you wish for…it came from nothing. All in one go. There was nowhere to run. Nowhere to hide. I can barely speak about it. I need to construct a shelter, rebuild my life, pick up the pieces and start again. What. Just. Happened? Mr Smooth had been including lots of smiley faces […]
Extract from an online dating blog – The Honey Hunter I am cleaning in my pyjamas wearing Marigolds. This is wrong, and simply would not be happening if I had a man…is it too early to start drinking? I cannot lose hope. My Prince will come. He is out there somewhere, looking for me…if he’s […]
Author Margaret K. Johnson talks about her stand-up comedy debut On Tuesday 21 May 2013 I went to London to perform a 3-minute stand-up comedy routine at Up the Creek in Greenwich to an audience of around 200 people. Why? Had I gone completely out of my mind? No! I’m a writer, and it was […]
Extract from an online dating blog – The Honey Hunter Well, I was charming, non-threatening, positively sweet and easy going. There was not a joke in sight, not a sniff of wit. Nada. Zip. Zero. I simply said I would be happy with any refreshing beverage (he had suggested coffee), and to let me know […]
“I like it in Wales and the north. In Surrey, they’re a bit ‘Oh God we’ve seen it all, do your best fat woman.’” We’re delighted and honoured to introduce our exclusive interview with one of the UK’s most treasured possessions, and a role model for women who weren’t born yesterday, JO BRAND Jo has given us […]
Spring is well and truly in the air. The weather is hot and the online dating men are, well, not quite hotter as such, but they are heating up. There has been action online! Not only has there been some frantic winking, but emails have also been written. My inbox is getting a damn good […]
No longer able to be reminded daily of hot guy’s snubbing of me, I have defected and become a fully-fledged paid-up member of the mother of all dating websites I have gone for it! Now I guess all I need to do is wait for love to happen…(love guaranteed is far too expensive). Photos uploaded, […]
Hot Guy, Hot Guy, wherefore art though Hot Guy!? Flirting, dating and giving it to someone else – that’s where. Yes, he has read my email…and, no, he has not replied. Perhaps I’m just simply not hot enough for Hot Guy. Am I trying to shop for D&G when I should stick to H&M? Do […]
Extract from a blog – The Honey Hunter I could not believe that he had written straight back to me! It seemed too good to be true. Oh. My. Goodness. I went into in a flurry of excitement, anticipation, anxiety. Naked Pilot had actually written back to me. ME! His un-opened email was sitting there […]
