Detach yourself from a potential date until you meet

I couple of years ago, I fell for a guy on a dating site like Flirthut. Initially, they appeared to be out of bounds to me and out of my league but exchanging a few messages here and there revealed that we both had an interest in each other. It took some time before one of us plucked up the courage to ask the other one on a date, and it just so happened that it was me that made the first move.

We all make choices in life. Some of us make choices that we are happy with and the rest make choices that others are happy with.


You look nothing like your profile photos so…

Meeting dates should be fun, but it turned out to be a traumatic experience for me. He looked nothing like his profile photos and I couldn't believe the foul language he used to try and be friendly. Eventually I had to tell him what I thought and that didn't go down well at all.

A lot of us believe that paid for dating sites are better than free dating sites, but how do you actually quantify and measure that?

Does it even exist?

Can you learn from a bad blind date?

I met a blind date that a friend had set up for me but I don’t do blind dates. It’s a bit risky. But I took a chance. It’s amazing how quickly we make our minds up about people. We ended up in a busy pub and he wanted burgers so I had no choice. The date didn’t work out but I learnt a few things about myself.

Mr Right vs Mr Right Now

We all want Mr Right but sometimes we just need Mr Right Now. Mr Right is more dependable, reliable and listens to what you have to say. Mr Right Now is more about initial attraction. He smells good, dresses well and has an incredible presence about them.
