Giving up on dating

Recently I had another False Start date, and I concluded I need a break from dating. This guy was a year younger than me, and had a job involving writing. We met on OkCupid, and arranged a date for just a few days after Rockstar-Film-Guy. He suggested we meet in Soho, about 50 metres from…

20th Century Cocks

Do you ever go to the cinema, and after the trailers, you think you’re watching the first few seconds of the film, but actually, you’re just watching another logo video for one of the film production companies?

How THE HELL was the first date so good?

I guess…

Mentionitis and Joe-Kay Cupid

Great date, terrible texts

I keep not getting around to writing about what happened with More Than Average Joe. I think it’s because I’m a bit disappointed and perplexed by it. But I should conclude things, otherwise it’ll give me the Zeigarnik Effect! So, we met and kissed in a club, and exchanged numbers. I really enjoyed chatting to…
