Dear boy…

Please remember that behind every hello, every ‘like,’ every match, every swipe, every comment and every text, is a beautiful girl. A girl who has feelings. A girl who has been strong for too long a time. A girl who has been fighting to stay brave and keep shining even when she wants to give…

Swipe Strike

I’LL NEVER SWIPE RIGHT ON MY MR RIGHT. It’s a hard life when you’re a catch. You hear stories about SO many fish in the sea but when you’re searching for a barramundi and only reeling in bassa, your chance at love and the ‘fairytail’ mate you always dreamed of pretty much seems like oceans…

Planting the seed…

CHANGE YOUR MINDSET. EXPRESS GRATITUDE. My favourite night of the week, Saturday, spent with my favourites. 8 month old puppy Frankie and only purchased today, house plant Terrence. Together, we’re living the dream. Whilst I drink wine, Frankie chews on his designated sock, looking at me lovingly every 3- 5 minutes and Terrence just sits…

Apparently, good things come to those who wait…

WELL, I’VE WAITED. AND I’M STILL WAITING. It began on the weekend. When I was confronted with a blast from the past. In hindsight, I knew that all I wanted was a friendship like we had had so long ago with someone new that could give me everything. I reflected. I realised, why on earth…

Date smarter, not harder.

The no replies. The anxiety. The inappropriate or ridiculous texts. It’s way too much effort for this old school romantic…

All of the self’s

CHANGE YOUR MINDSET. CHANGE YOUR LIFE. So here’s me. 30. Single. Pupped up. Still living at home. A dreamer. A creator. A doer. A teacher. A poet. An author. A writer. I once had a plan. A plan to be married by 28, having kids by 30. But plans seem to go out the window…

To all the girls…

YOU GOT THIS! This is to all the girls who are searching for someone who can add to their lives, not become their life. To all the girls who have been ghosted, gaslighted, rejected and hurt over and over again in pursuit of him. To all the girls who keep trying no matter how disheartened…

Online dating or online frustrating???

NOT SNOOZING. STILL LOSING. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. Online dating is dead to me. Scoff if you may, regale me the tales of when I have said this very statement time and time before; but it’s the truth. Here I am, 30, a catch and an established, driven and independent…
